We relied on Trip Advisor reviews to find a good hotel for our first trip to Amsterdam. Thankfully, we found a great hotel – The Toren. It is located in a residential area, which makes it quiet and relaxing, but still near the best sights like the Anne Frank House and wonderful restaurants that are all within walking distance.
The Toren is like Amsterdam - dark, brooding and mysterious. We found it gaudily over decorated with hot pink plumes, gilt, and colored lights that swirled over the ornate furniture. It was like falling into a psychedelic cloud and we loved it!
It’s a series of townhouses, and our room was in the annex, just a few steps away from the lounge and reception area. We chose a canal view room, and that was definitely worth it. The room was large and comfortable with a big bathroom and a black chandelier over the bed. I must mention, too, the wallpaper that looked like corrugated tin when the light hit it a certain way. So fascinating!
Breakfast was served in the small lounge, but we never had to wait and enjoyed a tasty buffet. There were several lovely ladies at the front desk who quickly booked our reservations for dinner or tours. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners in the lounge one night. They explained how The Toren was decorated by a famous interior designer, and they introduced us to ice champagne. They are a fun couple.
Choose The Toren and prepare to be dazzled!
