I found the Toren on Tripadvisor and booked two nights during a business conference in Amsterdam. They quickly came back thanking me for the reservation, but warned me about the size of the room - it was one of two "compact" rooms, so they wanted to make sure I knew in advance. Being a good corporate citizen I decide not to upgrade and stay in the less expensive room.
Well, it was small, but it had everything necessary - and who sits in their room when visiting Amsterdam? The room was very clean, the bed was twin size but comfortable and the shower was also small but the large shower head was perfect.
There was a nice continental breakfast in the restaurant with great coffee. The same room doubles as the bar where we had a few late night drinks. It was after closing time, but the staff did not rush us. The bar and restaurant staff were incredibly courteous and helpful. In fact, one of the best features of the hotel are the people that clearly want to make your stay as nice
as possible. They genuinely care about their guest, which makes this little boutique hotel worth coming back to.
The hotel is situated on Keizersgracht which is close enough to central Amsterdam but in a quaint neighbourhood, on a quiet canal and far enough away from the party action. I plan to book a bigger room here or at their sister hotel Sebastian with my family over the summer.
