I secured a reservation with the Toren after being badly let down by 717 (two days before Christmas!) for a 7/8th January booking made and paid for in November.
An initial 'phone call, after searching through Trip Advisor, was handled brilliantly by the reception staff who guided me through the website to show images of the available rooms, feeling slightly silly, as we've been married for 17 years, I booked the Bridal Suite for my husband's birthday weekend.
The suite is baroque in style and during a chilly weekend provided a snug nest for exploring the city, everything is just a short walk away.
Staff are friendly and helpful but very professional - we had a couple of minor issues with the movie channel and our shower which were resolved within minutes and on checking out we were pleasantly surprised to be given an unasked for discount to compensate for this.
Reservations were secured as requested to two top Amsterdam restaurants, Envy and Christophe and the icing on the (birthday) cake was a bottle of chilled champagne waiting in the suite on Saturday afternoon when we returned from shopping as a gift for my husband.
Only one niggle...... In this age of technology, at a modern, well run, fabulously staffed, frankly gorgeous hotel why isn't there a free wifi set up for guest use in their rooms? I know it's available in the lounge but I didn't want to have to get dressed and trot down the road.... Everywhere else in Amsterdam from coffee shop to airport seems to do it so come on Mr Toren make your hotel absolutely perfect.
