“A fabulous hotel with a great staff”
Reviewed 7 May 2009

We had a terrific stay at The Toren. While the room was (European) small it was beautifully appointed with a nice bathroom. Bathtub was large and bubble baths were the order of the day after walk, walk, walking all over Amsterdam. Staff was excellent and had friendly suggestions of things to do and how to get there. Nespresso machine in the room was also a BIG HIT with us. Stephen in the bar was very funny and very accommodating. No constructive comments for improvement. Everything was wonderful. A little pricey by American standards but worth it! We will be going back soon!

Really good location with easy access to all cultural goodies. Just around the corner from Ann Frank's house (and the canal bus stop) .
The staff were friendly, helpful and extremely efficient. The hotel is quirky as it is a canal house so the rooms are not enormous but perfectly adequate for a couple of nights stay. The rooms are beautifully presented and the coffee machine also makes tea ! We had breakfast in the room and there was enough to feed a family of four for a week !
It was not cheap, but worth every Euro. A lovely break in a lovely hotel - will definitely be returning.

The hotel is located right on one of the canals in a quiet area of the city, but you can comfortably walk to everything. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was a bit pricey, but it was very good. The room was nicely decorated, but a bit small and there weren't any drawers to place clothing. The Nespresso machine in the room was a nice touch. I would definately stay there again.

We booked The Toren for our honeymoon given the great feedback from TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed as the hotel delivered as expected. It is very accessible by tram & a short walk from the tram stop. The rooms are very charming. And the owner gave us a room upgrade to the junior bridal suite which was the highlight of our stay!

Okay, The Toren was a pleasant hotel, staff were very warm / friendly, the bed was incredibly comfortably, the rooms are dark / eccentric -- not bright and cheery -- things appear to be a little dated though; great AC. My only complaint, however, would be the bathroom It was definitely not user friendly (are any in europe?). With that said, the sink was way too small for the modern faucet so you'll get sprayed the first time you turn it on. The shower is typical europe -- water gets everywhere unless you sit down in the tub. Also no wireless internet access. Breakfast was okay (not great not bad) but not worth the price in my opinion. Overall, the Toren is a very nice place to stay when in Amsterdam. The Hotel is situated in a quiet spot and we had a beautiful canal view. The staff was great and very helpful. Very close to anne frank (remember to buy your tickets online so you can bypass the line). We loved Amsterdam and would return to the Toren. Charlotte, North Carolina

The Toren hotel is wonderfully over the top in decor, a real antidote to minimalist style of many modern hotels. The room was beautifully decorated with chandaliers, gold mirrors, and all sorts of luxurious touches, including a huge double jacuzzi, coffee machine and ipod station. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and polite. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the decor of the dining room was, again, plush, flamboyant and fabulous. The location of the hotel, a couple of minutes from the Ann Frank house, on a stunning canal with beautiful architecture was quiet, peaceful and yet very convenient. At night the the canal is lit up with twinkly lights and is very romantic and beautiful. There are lots of good restaurants within easy walking distance. We had a great time in Amsterdam and the Hotel Toren was fantastic!

We stayed in Hotel Toren for a city trip in march and it was good from the start. Our room was upgraded to a deluxe room with a very nice and big Jacuzi. The room was not to big but was very nicely decorated with a luxurious bed. It is a very romantic place to spend your nights in Amsterdam!
