Located in a good part of the city. Excellent attitude and service by the staff. One of the best beds. I definately liked the interiour style of our jnr suite ( we're upgraded by The Toren from deluxe). Our room had a small private spa in it. We loved it! This stands out from the other luxury hotels. This was very good value for the money.

I booked this hotel after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor but was still pleasantly surprised by just HOW good it was. The location cannot be beaten - in a wonderful district and right at the side of the canal. We had two rooms, a superior double and a junior suite, both of which were superb. Luxurious fabrics, red, gold and black, and nothing worn or tired. The Superior Double had a whirlpool bath in the bedroom and the Junior Suite even had a garden! The bar was really opulent and comfortable and this is where breakfast was served. There was a really good choice to cater for all tastes and the staff constantly topped everything up. All the staff were friendly and courteous and the reception staff in particular were extremely helpful, giving directions and booking restaurants. We stayed for three nights and on each night had dinner in restaurants recommended by the hotel. They went to a lot of trouble to establish what kind of restaurant we would like and all three meals were fantastic! I assumed this meant the standard must be very high in Amsterdam generally but have been assured by friends since my return that Amsterdam does have bad restaurants too! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and its staff to anyone.

The staff at this hotel are spectacular and go out of their way to make guests feel comfortable. I arrived very early in the morning after having stayed at an awful place in Amsterdam and the hotel management at The Toren not only made sure that I got my room right away eventhough check in wasn't until 2/3pm - but they also provided me with complimentary breakfast to help start off the morning right! The hotel is also located close to some amazing local pubs!

My husband and I stayed at The Toren last month and had a wonderful experience! The rooms were spacious--especially by European standards--with a lovely bathroom and a view of the courtyard. The reception desk/concierge were amazing. They helped with restaurant suggestions, and other activities to make our time in Amsterdam delightful. They really were spectacular on the day we were leaving and supposed to take a train to Paris. We found out that the trains were on strike. Mieka at the front desk called several airlines and was able to get us on a flight and arrange for transportation for us quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend The Toren.

Our stay here was a last minute substitution and it was a great one! The location (next to Jordaan neighborhood) is absolutely perfect. The canal view was amazing. The area was quiet at night and lively and interesting during the day. It is within walking distance to so many different things; museums, good food and drink. Really just a lovely place with lovely staff and great room amenities.

Room Tip: Opt for a canal view, it is amazing!

From the start the staff made us feel extremely welcome. The hotel is small and funky in its decor . They have two old mansions about 100 feet apart. We stayed in the annex which was lovely. Interiors are a little masculine but well done. Everything had been modernized in terms of lighting, bathrooms, etc. Lovely garden area out back of the main building. The bartender, Sebastin, makes a mean gin & tonic. This is near the Anne Frank House in the Jordaan area of Amsterdan, a quiet neighborhood near enough to everything. Stay here and you won't be disappointed.

You cannot beat this Hotel, amazing interior design, great breakfast, and the staff is incredible! I have stayed at Ritz Carlton's and never got this level of service from the staff. You feel like you are staying with family/friend in Amsterdam, and their only goal is for you to have an amazing time. Also, the A/C was excellent. Nothing like spending a day in the hot Amsterdam sun and coming back to a cool room to relax. The drinks at the hotel bar are great, you get 2 drinks with your reservation, so do NOT miss the opportunity to try this great bar.

Room Tip: Some rooms are smaller than others, but all are great. Simply ask the hotel to help you fit a room...
