Located in the 'nine streets' area which feature enchanting independent fashion shops and restaurants, this boutique hotel is close to all the attractions of Amsterdam. Overlooking a canal in a quiet street our bedroom was at the back but still had a pleasant outlook. Our bed was the most comfortable we have slept in anywhere in the world. We dined... More

With a very good location near the nine streets and not far from the museums square this hotel offers you nice rooms and service. It has a nice restaurant, a small bar, small gymn, and other facilities. Daily rates are expensive.

Arrived I've Amsterdam after a 45 minute flight, we took an all electric Tessler taxi to the Dylan hotel located 20 minutes away in the western central canal area.

This is my new favorite hotel in Amsterdam. I usually stay at the Hotel Pulitzer down the street, but because the Dylan was a SLH and member of fine hotels with AMEX, I gave it a shot.

What a great stay for my first visit to Amsterdam. I travel quite a bit and this was like a home away from home. First and foremost, the staff was so kind and helpful, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. It is a boutique property, which means it doesn't have some of the amenities that a...

Anne Franks House, The Van Gough Museum and the Rijksmuseum were all in walking distance. Also, it had a lift which was helpful with my mother-in-law. The staff also was very helpful in finding us a tour guide that took us out to the countryside to see the windmills and a small village.

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
