“Good things come in small packages”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Sublime mix of old and new. Great service. Very nice food. Nice common areas.

Room 9 - very stylish with nice gadget features. Room 24 (suite) - so nice I could live there.

Some of the stairways are narrow with some level changes that could take you by surprise but overall - a very nice stay and whilst not cheap, I thought it good value for the high quality and exclusive feel.

Room Tip: Room 9 was nice. Room 24 was awesome

These three days at The Dylan, in the romantic heart of Amsterdam, overacheived my expectations in all aspects. Forgotten the grand hotels you can find in any capital city with their somehow overdone efforts to shout "luxury". Here, everything, service, decoration, lightnings, temperature, food, silence seem so natural that you get no direct clue of their presence. Only the outcome makes you conscious of the thorough quality of this hotel : you simply feel perfect, night and day.

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.
