I booked this hotel having had several interesting experiences with Amsterdam hotels. Hotels in the city centre can be dreadfully hit and miss.
The Toren simply blew my fiance and I away. The rooms are beautiful in deep reds and blacks. The bed was comfortable, the heating and cooling was simple and (wait for it...) effective, and the bath was huge - easily large enough for two with a great bubble spa function.
The staff were great. We arrived at about 9am from an overnight train and just wanted to drop our bags off. The staff were welcoming, and offered to change our room to one which was already ready...but then suggested we leave our bags as the room we had been allocated was better. We were then told we'd been given complimentary breakfast for our stay...and were then offered it for that morning as well.
The staff were also more than happy to make recommendations on tours and restaurants. I wanted to take my fiance fora nice romantic dinner on our last night in Amsterdam (also our last night in Europe) and the recommendation of the girls on reception was perfect.
All in all - an excellent hotel. Great location, great staff, great cocktail list, great breakfast. We would absolutely stay again.
PS - the chocolates and strawberries waiting in our room was a nice surprise, as were the free welcome cocktails.More
