“Great location and great service”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

I stayed for 4 days in the Toren after reading some reviews by others. I found the hotel in a quiet area but still within a walking distance to the dam square. Which is just perfect for me as I joined the local tours along the damrak street. The staff were helpful and friendly with information touring the city. Other than including free breakfasts for the 4 days, what surprises me most in all my travels, that when I asked to purchase their luxurious towel with the nice toren logo, the hotel gave me one without charging me. Wow! this is one hotel which knows how to value their customers. I will definitely come back to this hotel if I am in Amsterdam again.

My wife and I stayed there in September. The place is amazing. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The hotel has two buildings and we stayed in the second one, after I read Tripadvisor tips saying that the rooms there were more spacious and renewed.
Really, the room was spacious, renewed and very beautiful. The canal view was fantastic.
Wifi was free of charge and worked very well.
The location is very good, quiet, near Anne Franke House and a short walking distance to the main touristic attractions. There is many good restaurants around.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Second building (more spacious and renewed rooms); Ask for canal view.

I have seldom met such friendly staff! And the hotel itself is unique with a family feeling all over it!

When I arrived I could see that the staff really love working there, and they took really good care of me. I have been travelling quite a lot, and the rooms are unique compared to many other hotels in the surrounding. I felt very much at home! Will not hesitate to stay there again!

This is an extraordinary boutique hotel. We enjoyed a canal view room. It was intimate, tasteful and romantic. The service was among the very best that we have received in any hotel. All of the staff is friendly, efficient, professional and ready to address any need. We had a drink in the intimate bar every night and ordered in dinner one night from a nearby Italian restaurant. The staff handled every request we had. They even introduced me to a Dutch single malt whiskey that is outstanding.

The location is 2 blocks from the Anne Frank Huis, 10-15 minute walk from the train station, Dam Square and near many nice restaurants.

We could not be more pleased with our stay at The Toren.

From the moment of enquiry to checking out this was a memorable experience. The staff are absolutely fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, they all really seemed to enjoy working there. I booked this trip for my partner's 60th birthday and was not disappointed. The owners left a note and a surprise for my partner.

The rooms and public areas were beautiful. Having stayed in many hotels all over the world this has to rate as one of the best and just a short stroll from the main areas.

We had an evening meal in a lovely restaurant/bar, again great service.

We cannot wait to go back. Thank you all at The Toren.

A friend of mine who lives in Amsterdam recommended me this hotel for a weekend in the city. The location is enviable, central, overlooking the canal and close to the stations.
It 'sa very nice hotel with friendly staff but I didn't like the style.
The room (also quite large) was excessively decorated , with strong colors (black, purple, gray) and looked a room for meetings. The bath was better, with a nice jacuzzi, but without privacy.
