Lovely, lovely hotel! The interior decorations are unique, beautiful and luxuary. The view of the Keizergracht canal and location is superb – and on top of that the staff är devoted, friendly and very professional! A stay here is well worth your money and something you will remember.

I have stayed at the Toren both with my husband and with my company – and the hotel suited both a romantic weekend and a business trip. And we all were extremely satisfied with our stay.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms have a wonderful view over the canal. There are also rooms in the mainbuilding ove...

My husband and i stayed at The Toren for 2 nights on our Honeymoon in June. We were greeted by friendly and very helpful staff who organised for car packing and directed us to the best areas for shopping, sightseeing and cafes which was very helpful for first timers to the city. We were taken to our gorgeous, recently renovated special deluxe room sporting a double Jacuzzi, beautiful bathroom and fitting and a enormous plush bed fit for a queen and a wonderful view of the canal just for good measure. We were also surprised by the staff with champagne, strawberries and chocolates to celebrate our special occasion.

The location of the hotel could not be better, you are a few minutes walk to Dam Square, which was handy to drop off all of the shopping bags and many other attractions within walking distance.

Our stay at The Toren was not long enough and i would not hesitate to return for a longer stay in the future.

Room Tip: go all out and stay in the special deluxe room. Too beauiful to pass up!

Spent our wedding night in one of the special suites of this hotel (just a few houses down from the building with the reception). Larger rooms there, same vibe, just brilliant. Service in advance, during and after the stay there was sublime. The best hotel service we have received so far in hotel stays in general.

Kind enthusiastic staff making suggestions for things we had not thought of or were unaware of. Spectacular reception area and bar, all rich Rococo style. We got suite 406, with an equally spectacular Rococo style finish of the room: gold ornaments on the ceiling, a beautiful chandelier, fire place area, sitting area by the windows, antique desk next to the entrance. Lot of 'walking around' space. Wonderful king size bed which has the matrass as it should be: ONE large matrass rather than 2 x 1 pers matrasses with the break in the middle (don't understand why other hotels still do that). So Great!

Then downstairs... yes, split level. A bathroom beyond imagination. Upon entrance, against the right side 2 beautiful spacious sinks, to the left first a walk in shower with multiple showers, next to it a large jacuzzi and behind the back wall of the jacuzzi the toilet. The bathroom alone is just as big as some of the hotel rooms we stayed in in the past, excellent!

Concluding: the experience at Hotel the Toren really finished off an already magical day in style, actually extended 'Our Day' to the day after as well.

Extra compliments for the breakfast with champagne and all the dishes prepared for us, brought by room service. We spent an hour on the breakfast and still only finished half ;-)

A big thank you to everyone involved at The Toren, you really made the stay unforgettable for us and we cannot wait to return!

Recommended to everyone who would like to stay in Amsterdam in a luxurious environment. Located at the canal De Keizersgracht, in the Jordaan (one of the hot spots in Amsterdam), with everything right around the corner (the Dam, Anne Frank House, Flower Market etc) in the shadow of the Westerkerk.

The Toren was OK. Although the room did overlook the canal, it was small, uncomfortable (beds, pillows), and overpriced. The staff was nice. They gave us directions to the police station after my wallet, cash and passport were pick pocketed on the #14 tram. They assisted me with some replacement cash becasuse most of Amsterdam does not accept American Visa cerdit cards. They recommended an over priced restaurant that refused to serve tap water with an $80 meal (example see Tempoe DoeLoe - as recommended by Toren staff). Once again, the Toren is OK - Amsterdam is not.

Stayed in this hotel recently (16-20th july 2011) with my fiance. The hotel was absolutley stunning. I couldn't get over the size of the room plus we had a hot-tub which had lights that changed colours and a shower room with a power shower and a shower with a big head.The decore in the room was beautiful and there was everything in the room that we needed ie hair dryer,coffee machine tea etc. The lighting in the room was vey nice they had spot lights on the celling over the bathroom area and a chandiler above the bed. The veiw from the room was gorgeous as it over looked the canal. The hotel staff very extremly nice and friendly and would have done anything to make your stay more comfortable. They made us feel very welcomed in the hotel and helped us out with information when we needed it.The hotel also has a bar with gorgeous decore in it also. I could not fault this hotel at all apart from a little outside noise which was not from inside the hotel itself and it was def not a problem as we both enjoyed our stay here and were very sad to leave and we would def recommend anyone to stay there if they were travelling to Amsterdam. Fantastic hotel. :) :) :)
