“We were "Torenized"...and loved every moment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

Wow..what can we say. Stayed at the Toren in August and early September in two different rooms. First the Royal Suite is spectacular..few steps from the main hotel but a great room. You should know that if you are "older" or have difficulty with stairs, the bathroom is down a very narrow staircase...vey cool...but challenging,. The second time we stayed in a Junior Suite off the garden...again fantastic. The staff very professional and accomodating...GREAT location..on the canal...two blocks from Ann Frank and the tram (which goes everywhere). Canal tours just around the corner. The hotel itself is a bit eclectic but a cool eclectic. The price is not inexpensive but we felt priced very well and much less than other 5 star places we have stayed in (and this is 5 star). HIGHLY Recommend!!!

Service
The hotel staffs were very attentive, friendly and helpful with our needs. Everyone from the reception, bar guy and door man all were very pleasant while dealing with us. In fact, we were given a complementary buffet breakfast during our 2 nights stay as a courtesy from the hotel. We were so surprised and happy with such gracious gesture from the hotel.

Breakfast
Breakfast selection was great. Providing standard selection of continental breakfast such as fruits, yogurt, fresh breads, croissants, yogurt, salmons,

We had a memorable 3 night stay here. It is centrally located close to the Jordaan district and 15 min walk from Central Station. The bar is a perfect place to unwind and meet friends for drinks. The rooms have character, and the garden patio is perfect for a trying out the various smoking options available.

Second stay here and this time we stayed in a garden suite total luxury and privacy. Giant Jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle with a steam function built in ( great for a hangover ) both so good. Didn't have breakfast but had a few drinks in the bar and if you smoke there's a cool room to sit and drink and smoke in. Room was beautiful and bed ultra comfy we had great sleeps. The staff are lovely and friendly . Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed in The Toren for a week located in Amsterdam. I love this hotel it’s just awesome with a beautiful sights of Dm. The hotel is at a stone thrown distance from Dam square and it is located in the right corner of Anne Frank. The concierge services were awesome. I had to send an important courier to my boss and they did it for free. The room was large and cleans with a LCD TV. Bathroom is spacious and well equipped. Highly recommend you to go for it.

I say "Mary Poppins" because this hotel was 'practically perfect in every way'. Had a long layover with my bf in amsterdam and he chose this based on reviews. Only a 15 min walk from train station, def use a map so you don't walk out of your way- all cobble sidewalks on main road. At check in the two women there were so helpful and nice (one studied abroad in istanbul- Our destination, for a couple of months and offered to help us find places to eat) and they upgraded our room which included buffet breakfast! What a beautiful room! The bell boy helped us w/our bags and gave us directions on how to use the lights (lots of buttons). Great tub, awesome pillows, soft towels, heated towel rack7, AND they have a hair dryer for u!! Buffet breakfast is like from 8-10 (?) and before we left we had a FILLING breakfast. Fresh salmon, eggs, mushrooms, bacon, fresh fruit and strawberries, there was much more so i think they were trying to accommodate all tastes- WELL DONE :) They even bottle their own water (kind of hardcore) This hotel def knows how to take care of travelers far from home. Anne Frank house is less than a 5 min walk, and the hotel is right near some small businesses (food, shopping, etc). Great pics near the canals too. The stuffed animal in the pics is COCKY, the university of South Carolina's mascot. He just couldn't stop being in the pics, i apologize. He loved the toren too! ;)

Room Tip: We were on the 1st fl and we never heard anything outside or in the hallways. Our room didnt face th...

Amazing hotel, The staff will do anything to keep you happy, very clean. The best part was the hotel doesn't have a kitchen but you can tell the staff you fancy a ham pizza and within the hour they deliver a pizza to your room.
Bathroom was also unbelievable.

I would Definitely say pay the little extra cash for the best boutique hotel in the world 2012 *which they have certificates in the bar to prove this fact*
