“JUST FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

A small, boutique hotel right on the canal in Amsterdam. Located just around the corner from the Anne Frank Museum and a 15 minute walk to Central Station - walking distance to museum district as well.
Great room, lovely staff, nice breakfast, little bar for drinks in the evening. It was just perfect! I stayed in the VERY SMALL single room (they only have two of these), but I was forewarned via email about the size of my room. But, it was just perfect for my needs. Everything was clean and neat - the bathroom was small, but very adequate. The small room probably wouldn't be ideal for a large person with a lot of luggage, but it was definitely suitable for me. The staff were very helpful and when I had to cancel one night of my stay I was graciously given a refund.

On top of what in all 5 stars review, we got a gratious 500 € reimbursement from a previous no show, despite clear hotel policies to the contrary. Will be back, hopefully to our silent, glamour, confortable, jacuzzed room.

We chose The Toren because of the high recommendations in Tripadvisor's reviews and the hotel's great location by the canal and near city center. From the first step into your hotel we become more certain that our decision has been right. Never got more polite and considering welcome in a hotel in Europe.

We have booked a small double room with canal view, but there were basically no space to our clothes. We told at the reception our problem and we were offered a larger room from the garden side of the house. There were enough space to our clothes and other things and also a jacuzzi, which was nice.

The room was lovely, spotlessly clean and and very quiet, the bed was comfortable and the pillows soft. The staff was genuine polite and very helpful. The breakfast was delicious and I did even get gluten free bread for breakfast which was also very nice. We would highly recommend The Toren hotel to anyone traveling to Amsterdam.

We returned last night from a two day trip to Amsterdam and stayed at The Toren. The hotel is beautiful, the staff so helpful and understandably proud of their hotel. Its very close to the city centre, just around the corner from Anne Franks house so perfectly located. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here and would return without a shadow of a doubt to this city and this hotel. Just as a note of advice, the waiting time for the Anne Frank house is much longer than indicated on the signs, don't be fooled!!

The people at the Toren seem to be very nervous about the "room for one person" as indeed it is quite small. There are actually two of them, one in the main building and one in the annex. I would suggest the one in the main building even tho the annex one is slightly bigger. The annex is about ten houses away, and that makes it more distant from Breakfast and the tram system. And the room in the main building has a lift opposite so there is no climbing stairs with suitcases.
So in addition to all the good things that others have said about this wonderful hotel, don't be afraid about booking the small room for one (if there is only one of you) as it is fine for the job (yes it is snug) has a comfy chair and an industrial Nespresso machine. And good value

Room Tip: If just one of you, maybe the "small" rooms will suit

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in!
Do you remember when you were a child and would imagine sleeping in a cloud? well that is how comfortable the bed was.
The room was beautifully decorated and super clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Breakfast was great too.
Its close to the centre of Amsterdam but still in a quite spot.
I loved my stay here!

Perfectly placed in the old centre of the city on one of the main (residential) "grachts"; located in several old merchants homes on the canal. Our room - in a separate building was lovely - furnished in a gentle/old-fashioned/yet fashionable/comfortable style with lots of rich fabrics, colours and wall coverings. Hospitality was outstanding; staff were delightful. Excellent breakfast. A real gem in the city. Why would anyone want to stay in a big chain hotel when you can stay here??
