“Comfort of home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Even before we came to the hotel, the staff was extremely helpful. We emailed the hotel to find out the best way to get to the hotel and also which train station to use to go to Paris. They were extremely helpful with even suggesting a service to pick us up at the airport or taxi. They booked the service for us to get to the hotel. The staff was so helpful. The rooms were extremely comfortable Breakfast was wonderful and the staff attentive. Their suggestions for restaurants also fantastic. This is a place highly recommended and would stay at again in a moment

The Toren is class. Rooms opulent, comfy, beautiful- we had a canal room- very scenic-quiet location. Staff as nice as can be. Easy walk to sites and Tram. Breakfast is a Feast- fresh strawberries- the Works- yummy. Bar at lunch or dinner had very tasty items- my favorite was BitterBalls- a local specialty. If you want a Super Nice spot- the Toren is it!!!

Room Tip: book early

I only stayed here one night of my stay in Amsterdam and wished I had been there the entire time. My room was the smallest in the hotel, but still great and totally sufficient for one person. The bath was very modern and comfy, almost as big as the rest of the room itself. The location really can't be beat - right on the canal rings and central to everything. They also have a great bar on the first floor, and wonderful staff. Will stay here on any return trips to Amsterdam.

Love how we could take a nice stroll along the channel. The location is so convenient and I also loved the fact that the hotel was so progressive in its design. The hotel is truly unique with its location and the fact that Amsterdam has no hotel like it. People looking for a cozy and fun stay are at the right place at the toren.

The staff was exceptional in every way. The feel of the Toren with its decor and cozy atmosphere made you feel comfortable as soon as you entered the front door. Staff went above and beyond to find the best restaurant suited for our party of 8. Had a great time. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Would stay in the main building.

Excellent hotel in center Amsterdam. Extremelly attentious front desk staff - provided us with a map + explanation of main points of the city, as well as with a list of restaurants around the area (the ones we tried were very good). Rooms are nicely decorated, with free Nespresso. One added bonus was the fact that bathroom goodies were by rituals. We stayed in the adjourning building, a few steps down from the main one. The stairs were a little steep, but I guess that is the rule in amsterdam. In all, we were very happy with our stay.

A cozy, boutique hotel right in the center of Amsterdam's most charming area. Take long walks along the canals and admire rows and rows of beautiful historic townhouses. The Toren is a great place to spend a romantic weekend or even the entire honeymoon. Excellent breakfast, superb customer service. Dark colors were chosen for the luxurious decor (burgundy and black mostly) so it may feel a bit overwhelming to those accustomed to bright, open spaces. Do splurge on a Suite or a Superior Room with canal view if budget allows. Or a Garden Suite for more privacy. Lots of quiet cafes and wonderful restaurants nearby. Highly recommend the casual fish restaurant Lucius (oysters!) and gourmet De Luwte with a perfectly romantic ambience, great meal choices, and a nice wine selection.

Room Tip: Do NOT. I repeat, do NOT choose room 424 even if it's the last one available and you're desp...
