Stayed here just for one night, with 2 friends. The hotel is exceptionally average: the rooms, the building, the size of rooms, breakfast choice etc. The major plus is the proximity to everything. Plus that during the day you are in the perfect spot for brunching on the canal. BUT, because you're in the heart of everything you have a... More

I've stayed at the Torenzicht on numerous occasions before and always found it to be okay but recent changes made by new owners and have put it back on my "favourites" list. Even though this hotel and bar is in the heart of the red light area of Amsterdam the staff made me feel very welcome and I managed to... More

Rooms are clean, breakfast was better than expected, staff were not so friendly but ok. (Especially hk). Location is super! Located just in the city center, red light district. To sum up, it was nice.

I did not stay at the hotel but took drinks in the bar before being shown down to the restaurant by a very helpful and friendly receptionist , Anna. The restaurant was clean and open plan and the food , I took the fish and chips , was well cooked , tasty and great value. Well worth another visit.

Great location! Actually, perfect! Right in the middle of the Red Light District. There' s a very cool bar open 24 hrs and another place for the nice breakfast (I had a soup at night at this place and it was very nice!). The room is simple but clean, the bed is confy. Just the noise from outside that can... More

Right in the middle of Amsterdam, ideal for visitors and adventurous. Not a place to rest and relax, as the crowd outside will be loud till even late. The hotel itself is nice, an old building with super narrow and stiff stairs - typical of those old fashioned buildings (an odyssey to bring the luggage up the stairs and down).... More

this is a good and safe basic hotel. Hotel staff is very friendly. Rooms are clean with basic furniture and canal view. Beds are comfortable. Bar open 24hrs for hotel customers. Very central location, in the middle of everything. Don't expect luxury but I don't have any complaints: everything is kept in good working conditions.

I booked the apartment located in the building next to the main hotel, with a view from the living/dining room over the canal to the huge pink elephant of Theatre Casa Rosso. The back room is surprisingly quiet and the bathroom and shower are very good. Since I was last here, the new owners have upgraded the rooms and turned... More
