“Perfect stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2011

We took the Royal bridal suite which was georgeous!!!
The service provided by the receptionist is very very kind ,pleasent,welcoming and patient.
The area of the hotel is great , very nice to be in a hotel which is in a residential area.You feel less as a tourist and more as a local.
We were each time impressed to see the canal in front of the exit (and entrance) of the hotel.Great view &feeling.
The only 2 little drawbacks are that the bathroom is in a lower level of the room with narrow stairs in between, and the lack of bottles of water provided to the guests especially for making coffee.
We did not try the breakfast but it looked awesome.
Thank you very very much for your great hospitality.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your marvellous hotel – I will like to give you the very best recommendations.

Room not at all as small as I had expected/feared – and very nice deco.

Arrived rather early, and was able to get the room early – very nice.

We were out shopping, sightseeing, dining all day and returned to the hotel 10 pm. Even thought my daughter just turned 7 she uses a diaper at night – and yes I forgot to bring them… Called the front desk around 10:30 pm to ask where we might be able to buy some at the late hour. 5 minutes later a charming young man knocked our door with 5 diapers – excellent service. I was just so very relived and happy about the excellent service.

Breakfast was VERY nice, warm delicious bread, fresh baked croissants, eggs lot’s of cheese – all we could want and more – especially taking into consideration this is a small hotel – it sure didn’t show in the large selection of breakfast.

Excellent location, easy and very charming walk to all of central.

ALL staff was very sweet, helpful and very effective and fast.

Charming little garden, where we enjoyed something cold to drink, before we left for the airport.

Suggestion of improvement: Clearly state if a room booked is not in the main building (even though the other building is just as charming) I personally did not like there were no staff on duty at night in the building our room was in.

A very stylish hotel centrally located esp for the Jordaan area, where there are good restaurants and an interesting market on a Saturday. The staff are attentive and helpful. Our room although small was nicley decorated and had all you would expect from a city centre hotel. Some intersting posters on the wall also entertained. A good breakfast in lush surroundings which served until 11.30 at the weekend.

I stayed at the Toren in March...my boyfriend and I were doing a mini Euro Trip, hitting up Ireland, The Netherlands and Germany. This was our second stop. I loved this hotel...it's different. The decor is darker and kinky and just...different :-). We stayed in the cottage in the back of the hotel as my guy smokes and it was the most conveniant for him. Only thing I'll say, I loved the rom, a tad small, but big for Europe standards. The room was cleaned immaculately every day. Kudos to the maid staff, they did a great job. The bartenders could mix a drink and were very friendly and talkative if you engaged them. The bar, we ate lunch there one day. The club sandwhich was great! The front desk, the ladies there were friendly and informative, helped us out a lot and spoke very good english. Overall very impressed, I only gave it four stars because if you stay in the cottage expect some outside noise. There was a kids birthday party out there one day...they were quite loud. And there is actually quite a bit of traffic back there...people traffic, kids every so often playing. We really didn't care, it didn't bother us too much. But when people are staying there on vacation, some look for peace and quiet, if you want that...I wouldn't suggest the cabin. Would I stay again...in a heartbeat!

Beautiful boutique hotel! Wonderful staff (friendly, helpful, welcoming) and perfect location. I stayed at the Toren as I was attending a conference in the city and I did not have a chance to try the very beautiful bar or use hotel services that much, but the atmosphere is truly unique - a blend of traditional Dutch house, OTT decor all red and black and purple velvets and brocades and chandeliers and candles and modern facilities. I had a cozy room with view over the canal and big bathroom. They serve a nice buffet breakfast at reasonable price and it was amazing value for money.
The only thing they could improve is maintenance in the rooms - no major problems but a bit more attention to details would be good.
It is the perfect place for a romantic weekend - too bad I was there alone.
And staff if fantastic - from reception, to breakfast to porters

I meet my wife who had been working in Amsterdam the week prior and we switched from her larger meeting hotel to The Toren using Trip Advisor's high rating. The Toren lived up to everything we expected. The location was excellent. Close enough to walk or get on a Tram to all the sights we planned. There were excellent small restaurants within five minutes of the hotel. The staff went out of their way to help us get around the city and make our stay in Amsterdam one to remember. We had not planned to return to the city before leaving for home however we enjoyed our stay so much we hope to rearrange our plans and spend the last day in Holland at The Toren.

Wonderful experience, staff was like family. Arrived in town on a early flight so room wasn't ready when we arrived so went to eat & they phoned us shortly afterwards to tell us room was ready. Met owner in back garden who sent us a round of drinks on the house.

Rooms quiet, luxurious. Big windows which open up to canal. Street scene gorgeous at night when lit up. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 119 overlooked canal, king bed.
