I booked one of the small single rooms. B/c it was very small, they contacted me immediately upon booking and offered me a free upgrade if available on the day. However, there was no other rooms available on the day, so they offered me a 10% discount and free buffet breakfast. Room was small, but I was aware of that before I confirmed the booking. It still had everything I needed. The chocolates and strawberries on arrival were lovely. The staff at the desk were very helpful. Excellent hotel and would definately consider staying there again.

This hotel was very well located. Walking distance to all of the sights including the Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank house. Our room was very quiet. Had a huge jacuzzi tub and a fruit bowl upon arrival

The Toren was a perfect place for our 1st wedding anniversary. We were taken to our room which was beautiful, very shabby chic and stylish, we were given a bottle of champagne, strawberries and chocolates and a lovely letter wishing us a happy anniversary. The staff were very helpful and made our stay very relaxing and with some great restaurant recommendations.The location was great with various classy restaurants and bars and only a 20 minute walk into the centre.

Room Tip: We had room 111 which overlooked the garden. The Hotel is in quiet location and I think you could a...

We were taken to our room which was beautiful, very shabby chic and stylish, we were given a bottle of champagne, strawberries and chocolates and a lovely letter wishing us a happy anniversary.

Thank you for make our stay so special.

We had not been to Amsterdam for 20 years so my husband and I did extensive research on accommodation in Amsterdam. We chose the Toren Hotel as all the reviews we read we so complimentary. With this in mind we had high expectations however we were delighted to find that this little gem exceeded all of them! Its absolutely stunning and I cant wait to return.
The staff at reception are all so friendly, extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. The décor throughout the hotel is amazing - luxurious fabrics, rich deep colours, beautiful lighting - opulent but at the same time extremely cosy. Comfy comfy beds and a bathroom with loads of fabulous Rituals products. The restaurant / bar area is magnificent - breakfast is a treat but its also a great spot for a drink or coffee.
What also meant a great deal to us is the position - Keizersgracht canal is close enough to Dam Square and all the popular tourist spots to walk to but what a pleasure to be able to get away from all that craziness and enjoy an area where local Amsterdamers live and go out. Its a vibey, trendy, very pretty area with good restaurants nearby. Particularly outstanding, was a restaurant called Seasons. What a pleasure to be away from the tourist traps.
It is evident from the outset that the owners of the Toren have put a great deal of thought into creating a hotel that is not only loaded with atmosphere, great décor but is also very comfortable and welcoming. One feels as if the staff really love working at the Toren and as a result of all the attention to detail we loved being there too!

An excellent location and friendly service are offered here. Rooms, however, we're showing signs of wear and tear. I haven't stayed anywhere else in Amsterdam, so I don't know if the Toren's condition is typical of properties in the city. Maybe our experience would have been more favorable if we had selected a room overlooking the canal or garden.
