“Delightful Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Located on one of the more scenic streets of Amsterdam and a short distance from the Central Station and/or passenger terminal. The hotel is just round the corner of Anne Frank's, Jordaan area and the delightful boutique streets of DE NEGEN STRAATJES. We were delighted with our find from the time we stepped outside the taxi and into reception. The service was excellent, the room was stunning, the jacuzzi bath in spa like products were divine, I loved the walk in cupboard and of course the decor was gorgeous. At the back of the hotel there is a garden area which is great for an afternoon cafe (Nespresso machine in the room) or sundowners. We only spent one night here, as we were onroute home, however were very tempted to forget exploring and stay in and enjoy the comforts of this stunning hotel. We had to be at the airport early the next morning so we were a little worried that the hotel wouldn't be able to assist us with breakfast, however their breakfast setup was ready and we had one of the nicest breakfast selections on our trip. Well worth a visit and a highlight for us. Treat yourself

Room Tip: We had the room downstairs closest to the garden, it was lovely

We stayed for two nights in the Royal Suite, The room and bath were incredible. I am certain you cannot do better for the price in Amsterdam. The space and amenities are excellent, but the staff is even better. They satisfied our every need, Made restaurant reservations after making excellent recommendations and cheerfully cancelled one of them when requested. The breakfast for 14 euro was a bargain. The location is the best. Close to Central Station, Dam Square, Canal Tour as well as located in the Jordaan, one of the best neighborhoods in the city. Our taxi to the airport came in 4 minutes and the price was just as the hotel said.. We are in Amsterdam once a year and this is the place we will stay.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, take the Royal Suite.

Everything!! I will certainly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Amsterdam. It was a convenient location and we could easily walk to dam square and Amsterdam central station. We were welcomed warmly by the staff who led us to our room and gave us a mini tour of the room. The hotel prepared a little surprise as we stated in our booking that we were on our honeymoon. Our room had a coffee machine and the capsules were complimentary. No wonder the Toren was listed as the top five hotels in the book, "a guide to Amsterdam" that we borrowed prior to the trip. We stayed for four days and it was hard to leave on the last day!

This hotel made our four days in Amsterdam quite a special memory. The trip was a surprise present for my husband, he had no idea what to expect (neither did I really) so I was very happy and excited when we finally arrived. It is a very beautiful building, inside and out, and the unique decor was refreshing and kind of inspiring actually.
Websites can sometimes give false impressions of their hotel, but not this one. You really have to be there to feel the quality too, the deep mattress and heavy curtains and all the small details that large hotel chains seem to forget about.
The room was decedent and we loved it straight away. The staff were very cool, so cool that you'd want to hang out with them and it's in the perfect location with two VERY good restaurants a few minutes walk away.

This hotel is in a very good neighborhood and close to everything you'd like to see in Amsterdam. Very cute yet small rooms but oh so decorated.
