Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Classy, sophisticated and approachable botique hotel. Had the vibes of an upscale bed and breakfast with amenities of upscale hotel. We typically stay at Marriott hotels but wanted a local vibe. Was a little nervous to Benoit of our comfort zone but h are super glad we chose the Toren. Staff went above and beyond to help us answer questions about things to do and with our luggage. Expresso in the morning sunrise was superb looking out the large windows at the lighted bridge on the canal. It was quiet and had the perfect amount of city buzzing around with bikes and pedestrians going by. Highly recommend upgrading to canal view to get the total experience of waking up to the beautiful view.

We are just back from the most amazing 2 nights in Amsterdam, staying at the Toren. Upon arrival we were greeted with big smiles and shown quickly to our room where we discovered a complimentary upgrade. As well as this, the hotel had organised balloons and a nice handwritten note. We had a quick change and then went down to the bar and the service was again amazing. We got chatting to the barman and I mentioned it was my parters 40th, I went to pay for the drinks 10 minutes later and was told that these were on the house. The room was very clean and we also made use of the jacuzzi which was very romantic. The location is great and only around 15 minute walk from central station so travelling to and from the airport was hassle free. We didn’t have breakfast at the hotel so cannot comment on this, however it smelled amazing when we walked past the bar. We are already looking at dates to return, thank you to everyone at the hotel who contributed to making our weekend perfect

We really liked the location of this hotel - right by a canal and handy for the tram system. It is also not far to walk to many key locations. It has a very cosy atmosphere and there is a nice bar area. Staff very helpful on arrival. Our room was small (which can be a feature of canal hotels) and rather dark. The breakfast was in the bar area and everything is ordered from a waiter. We found this a bit difficult as the waiter was not that efficient though pleasant. After the first day we ate breakfast at local cafes. We would not stay here again.

Wonderful hotel. Friendly and professional staff. Spotlessly clean. Great breakfast with plenty of choice. Lovely dining area and bar. Near all the sites and plenty of trams to go further afield. If ever we are in Amsterdam again, this hotel is where we will definitely stay.

We had a perfect escape to relax and immerse ourselves in a romantic stay. Great service and luxury room. Our room was clean and so nice, with even stunning views of the picturesque canal, super! We have been greeted with warm hospitality and an eagerness by the staff. The food is simply delicious and the management kind and always available to assist in any way possible. A place to return.

It was our second time at the Toren, from the first time we loved it for its warm and welcoming atmosphere and the friendly service. Other than the hotel's great location, this time we had a room overlooking the canal, highly recommended also as a good spot for viewing the New Year fireworks. Happy 2024

For Amsterdam, the rooms were extremely spacious. The location in perfect for exploring the quieter outer rings and beautiful Jordaan doorstep. Beds very comfortable and rooms very quiet. High end bath products with luxury bathrooms. The service from staff was amazing, especially Linda!

Our bar tenders Mario, Kevin, Tony were so fabulous. They made the best cocktails ever with warmth and expertise. Their sense of humor is brilliant. They will leave you laughing all night. Crete, Sardinia and Patagonia. Go to the bar at the Torren. You’ll have loads of laughs!
