A boutique hotel on a canal, the staff is friendly, the rooms spacious for Europe. The place is spotless, the breakfast has good choices. We were given an upgrade for the first night which was some room-so many new technologies it took a while to figure out how to turn off all the lights!. Bed was comfortable, bathrooms spacious. All in all an excellent place to stay as it is very centrally located, walking distance for most attractions. Our only little surprise was when we asked for a turndown when leaving before dinner we were answered with "what's that". When explained it was taken care of right away.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the Garden are very quiet.

Hotel was fantastic and in a great central location. The rooms are as they look in the hotel's photos. We stayed in Room 425, a double room in the annex building (20m down from main building)- had only one neighbouring room so it was v quiet. Bathroom looked brand new, excellent shower. The double rooms are v small and have double beds, not queens, so if you want more space choose the next room up. Double was fine for us. Best thing about this place is the staff - they will bend over backwards to help you with bookings, suggestions for places to eat/sightseeing etc. Can't overstate how much we enjoyed staying here.

Stayed four nights here in the Toren Annex (a couple of doors up from the main hotel). The decor is fantastic and the staff are really helpful. Our room was immaculately presented and cleaned every day. We were in room 403 in the back of the annex so there was no noise at all (the hotel is in a quiet area anyway) and we had a small ourdoor area shared with the room next door.

Room comes with minibar, TV, alarm, phone, coffee machine, hairdryer, shower and large bath with jets and lighting.

We visited the hotel bar one night, its open until 1am and is in the main hotel.Service was alright, not a huge variety to choose from but plenty of room to relax after a hard days 'touristing'

The hotel is in a quiet area just round the corener from the Anne Frank museum and about a 10-15 minute walk to Dam Square / 20 minutes walk from Centraal station. There is a tram stop about 1 block away near a small supermarket which is quite handy as well.

We checked into the Toren for three nights as our first Amsterdam experience and let me tell you...we were impressed! The hotel is in a classy, upscale, historic neighborhood! The front desk was knowledgable, the bar staff friendly, the other guests were warm and friendly, and the rooms were impeccably clean! We felt comfortable and welcome at the Toren and we would love to come back again some day!

Lovely hotel. I had a small single room which was very comfortable and beautifully appointed. Magnificent breakfast provided free because the hotel was concerned about the relative size of my room. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location, quiet but convenient for everything. Would go back if I return to Amsterdam.

Stayed 2 nights here in the secondary building before a cruise. Decadent decor, quiet rooms, comfy bed, nice breakfast which they threw in for free on our reservation. Best of all was the staff. So helpful and friendly. My own one personal drawback is that my skin had a reaction to the bedding and I broke out while staying here. So be aware if you have sensitive skin. Otherwise this is a top notch place to stay in Amsterdam!

My wife intended to stay at The Toren as the capstone of a three week EU holiday. Unfortunately, she had a medical emergency a few days before we arrived at The Toren and was essentially incapacitated during the Amsterdam portion of our trip. I called ahead to let the staff know we would be housebound during our stay as she recuperated in preparation for our flight back to the US. The Toren's staff could not have done more to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Any hotel can provide a bed. It is rare to find a place where you feel as well cared for as we were. We look forward to coming back to experience all we missed... and to properly thank the fine folks at The Toren.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Annex overlooking the canal. I recommend it. The impromptu events on the street a...
