This is a small luxury hotel on one of the main canals. The staff is very nice and accommodating. Although we didn't get the early check-in we had requested (and check-in isn't until 4 pm), we did get upgraded to a pretty spectacular room under the gabled roof. It's not for everyone, though, because you had to walk up 10... More

We stayed in room 46, a serendipity styled room and it was everything we wanted. The room was clean and styled and was a perfect place to relax. It was really quiet too. It was the perfect 5 star boutique experience even though it is only 4 star? I think the room is comparable to that of a Shangri la... More

Stayed with a colleague in two rooms for one night while on business in the city. Very relaxed ambience and lots of character in the downstairs restaurant / bar areas. There was an outside patio but this was booked for a private function so looked nice but didn't try. Also didn't try the restaurant at the rear but looked interesting... More

We took two nights at the Dylan to be close to the 9 streets area and within walking distance of the galleries and so the Dylan is as good as it gets. The arched entry courtyard is a nice refuge from the mad cyclists of Amsterdam who rule the pavements and roads and you are some distance from the mass... More

We stayed at The Dylan in June 2014 (me, my wife, and our 9 year old son). I was debating until the last minute between this hotel and the Andaz down the street. When I checked the rooms I had booked based on size, the Junior Suite at the Dylan was bigger by about 200 sq ft and looked very... More

My two daughters and I recently had a wonderful two night stay at The Dylan. Our room was a large loft space that was absolutely charming. The hotel is small, lovely and a little quirky ( it's several houses combined to make the hotel space). Staff was wonderful, esecially Eddie, one of the very helpful concierges. Great quiet location next... More

This is my little beautiful courtyard oasis in Amsterdam for both coffee and cocktails. Try their house cocktails, simply amazing! Not even talking about the service, the cozy rooms and the two restaurants ;-)

Reading the reviews below, I can just concur - great location, great service and a very nice breakfast. one point to note - our room had the bathroom in a second floor within the room so requires steps up and down. Not a big issue, still worth noting while reserving a room.
