“Lovely!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

I love staying here during ADE because it's where every important meeting is happening. The rooms all have a nice twist of style and are clean.
The only down side is that some room have difficult access, for example we were once given a room on two floors which had the bathroom at the bottom and bedroom at the top, and the stairs to go up were quite narrow and steep.
Another great thing about this hotel is the location, right on one of the main canals, you can find plenty of bars, restaurants and boutiques just around the corner.
Love their breakfast buffet as well.

Room Tip: Make sure you do not pick a room on two floors if you are not a very fit person or have motion issue...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your time and effort to write this review on Tripadvisor! We always appreciate it to read how our guests experienced their stay with us. We indeed have a couple of duplex rooms which can be sometimes inconvenient. However it suits the building and its history which we very much embrace.
But please let us know your preference next time by check in so we could provide you another room which will suit your wishes and needs better!

We are delighted to read your kind words about the cleanliness and our breakfast!

We hope to welcome you again in October at the next ADE or another time!

A very high quality boutique hotel with many different styles of rooms. Pricey but worth it if you're looking to treat yourself to excellent service and comfort. The restaurant serves phenomenal food and the staff are wonderfully helpful.

I will never stay in another hotel when I go to Amsterdam. The location is great, the staff incredible and the hotel is just perfect. From the food to the rooms to the bar and lounge area to the courtyard I could not have asked for more.

What a fantastic hotel. This is the only hotel I would stay at in Amsterdam. This was my second time staying at The Dylan and it just got better and better. The location, staff and rooms are second to none. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels all around the world and this is by far the best going around. A big thank you to all involved at The Dylan and I look forward to seeing you all again one day.

We stayed at the Dylan last weekend and had a wonderful time. This classy and very elegant hotel beguiled us with its beautiful rooms, subtle and excellent service, wonderful food and extensive wine list. It is definitely for someone who is discerning and has elegant tastes. Their attention to detail and helpfulness is unsurpassed.

I stayed in The Dylan in May. Excellent in every aspect, more than a hotel is just a treasure in the heart of the city. We have dinner in Occo: Professional service and both, food and champagne, were extremely satisfactory. I highly recommend it.
