I have been coming to Amsterdam since 1978 and l can say my stay at the Dylan has been the most impressive and memorable. The attention to detail is exceptional the atmosphere enchanting and the Staff like family. I was entertaining Dutch friends at the Vinkeles which was just amazing. They loved it !!

Well Done !

Had a wonderful few days, just over a week ago in The Dylan Hotel in Amsterdam. A most charming hotel situated in a very quiet area on one of the many canals that make up this beautiful city. Relaxing, understated, with discreet lounges, wonderful dining facilities, including Vinkles their award winning Restaurant, very relaxing, beautifully appointed bedrooms and above all the most friendly and helpful Staff.
The food was delicious and we ate in the Hotel every evening. Another bonus to this fab Hotel is that it is only a 6 or 7 minute walk to the main shopping area. A little expensive to stay but well worth treating yourself. Go on save up and have yourself a terrific Hotel experience.

It's hard to decide what to add to the positive reviews below, but we absolutely loved this hotel when we stayed here last year for new years eve...so much so that we are coming back to Amsterdam because we want to stay here for NYE again this year! The location is excellent and the building itself is a perfect integration of old and new luxury. The best part was that we booked through the Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts program and got an upgrade to this insane multi level suite. It really blew us away. Breakfast was great too. At midnight on NYE they pour veuve cliquot while setting off fireworks. So fun and would highly recommend.

Very well centrally located, great service. It is in front of the water surrounded by beautiful houses.
Top service, you cannot get any better. Rooms are very comfortable. Very good Wifi all around the premises.

Room Tip: If you have problems with stairs make sure you get the right room with easy access.

Sitting outside in the Dylan courtyard with a whiskey and a cigarette. What a lovely hotel. Great service, wonderful food in Vinkeles and a buzzing atmosphere in the bar. My favourite place to stay in this fantastic city. Perfect in both summer and winter.

The hotel is superb. The rooms are beautifully designed, the beds super comfortable and the attention to detail is astounding. I felt like a superstar when I stayed here which is why you get so many celebrities/rock bands staying here. The service is impeccable and the food is delicious - you can have afternoon tea in the brasserie or in the courtyard, great cocktails and amuse bouche in Bar Babou or experience fine dining in Vinkeles Restaurant which has a michelin star. It's a boutique hotel that has a very personal feel to it and the staff are super welcoming and will accommodate all requests within reason! I adore this hotel and can't recommend it highly enough. I stayed for 4 days and the bar staff even remembered which were my favourite flavour macarons!

From the moment we arrived, staying at The Dylan was a fabulous experience. The staff is exceptional, and they way they welcome you and orient you to the hotel was outstanding. Their attention to detail is quite remarkable. We stayed in room #23, top floor overlooking the garden/patio - very quiet and peaceful - our own little oasis for 5 days in June. Perfectly appointed room - high ceilings and designer lighting, lovely design, very comfortable bed, the francisfrancis espresso machine, rain shower; I could go on and on. Breakfast was delicious consisting of made to order eggs and a buffet with everything one could want for breakfast. We dined one evening in their restaurant and it was one of the most memorable meals we've ever had. Every night they left a little something in the room at turndown, and we loved this personal touch, including the bottle of wine and birthday wishes they provided one evening - it was not something that we asked for but while checking in had mentioned my husbands birthday in passing conversation but the staff had remembered this - they pay such close attention to details! Location, on a picturesque canal, is perfect for exploring Amsterdam - anything you want to see is in walking distance. The Concierge was very helpful in arranging for museum tickets, recommending restaurants, and day activities, as well as arranging for car service to and from the airport. The Dylan is such a special place, and has raised the bar by which we view all hotels now.
