Having read other reviews, I can agree that the uncollected rubbish around the canals was a bit surprising and disappointing, as we have never encountered the situation in Amsterdam previously. Perhaps there is some industrial action?
However, this in no way affected the sultry fun of the Toren. Better to stay in luxury when there is rubbish in the streets than in a hovel, I'd say.
The rooms are small- no doubt. We were upgraded to a canal deluxe and although we had to shuffle around the room with suitcases, it in no way affected the magic of the giilts, crimsons and blacks of the room. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate and served in a simply gorgeous room which owes more to Moulin Rouge than Van Gough. Sumptuous, splendid and a lot of fun. Reception staff were smiling, fun, helpful and a good introduction to the experience. A great place for a little fantasy for the real world.
