“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

A lovely hotel in an old historical building. The room is a bit small though and bathroom is not particularly comfotable either. The hotel has its charm indeed. Good service, great location. Vinkeles restaurand is just outstanding and selection of wines if perfect too..Vinkeles is definitely the place to come back to. A bartender in a downstairs bar is quite creative - his daikiri based on spiced rum was awesome.

We loved our stay at this charming boutique hotel. Location is fantastic - right on the Keizersgracht canal near the "hip" Jordan area. Wonderful service. Historic old building. We had breakfast included without room and the food was great. Also had dinner in their gourmet restaurant Vinkeles - incredible meal. We would definitely stay here again when returning to Amsterdam.

I love this location, so that's a good start. The staff were attentive. It is a lovely hotel building, but I didn't eat here. Really nice room with some very good touches - robes, iPhone speakers, etc. tiny loo though.

I was very happy with this hotel. It is boutique, with old narrow stairs and a clunky lift, but at the same time very polished and comfortable. I loved the fireplace and the courtyard downstairs and the exposed wooden beams and general dark decor of the rooms.

The great shower, bed, coffee machine and windows you can open made it very homely. The staff were lovely and helpful and the food delicious.

I have soft spot for Amsterdam, but this hotel was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had. I loved it and would definitely stay here again.

This is a quite the oasis in the middle of the best part of old Amsterdam. Beautiful rooms. First rate service. The restaurant in the hotel, Vinkles, is absolutely top notch. Great service and food. Highly recommended in Amsterdam.

We have been before for dinner, and a friend of us suggested that we stayed at the Dylan this time. The hotel is a small a boutique hotel, its pretty and cozy. The service is so so, it has too many stairs all over the place, and in much of their rooms, where you have the bed in one floor, and the bathroom in another. It is not a place where you feel that service is everything, they are accommodating, but they don't' go out of their way to give a good service. We liked it, but expected more.

Room Tip: Be aware that the duplex rooms have the bathroom in one floor, and the the bed in other. The stairs...
