There are many glowing reviews of the Toren and they all ring true: Lovely rooms, gorgeous setting (the view overlooking the canal was special), friendly staff, quaint bar (with a great martini), superb location near the Jordaan and the 'Nine Little Streets' - but then they went beyond the call of duty in a way that no chain could ever have done.
We (myself, wife, and 7-month old baby) were in the Toren during the blizzard that dumped a half foot of snow on Amsterdam recently (late Dec). As we made our way to check out, Mr. Toren stopped us and said, "if your train doesn't leave, call me immediately and I'll hold a room for you." Sure enough, trains out got cancelled, and the situation at the station started to get chaotic. And true to his word Mr. Toren held us a room - at a superb rate I should add - when what few rooms available in the city were otherwise being offered to stranded travellers at extortionate prices. What could have been a nightmare turned out to be another wonderful night in Amsterdam. In a world full of chains, it's nice to know that there's still a few family owned places that believe in hospitality.
