“Classy old hotel you gotta love.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

If I bought a house decorated like this I'd burn it, but somehow it all worked for us. We were very happy during our stay here for 4 nights in October 2013. Great location, and wonderful helpful staff. Charming bar, super breakfast and quiet location on a canal. We were in the annex, but unless you need to make lots of trips to the bar or front desk there was no downside for us. It's just a few doors down the street and the (very) short walk to breakfast gave us a chance to see what the wheather was going to be like. Our room was compact, but plenty adequate with plenty of closet and other space with a decent sized bathroom. Would stay here again and highly recommend.

Excellent experience. My husband and I stayed for three nights in July 2014. We had a regular double room in the annex building (aka down the street) the location from the main building worried me but the staff works so hard that the room service (which involves them walking down from the main building) was fast, even faster than most major hotels (or boutique) that are contained in one building. The room was on the back and very quiet. Staff always smiling and cheerful. I love that they ask you how your room is and how you slept every morning at breakfast. Beds are VERY comfortable with a foam comfort top. Such great staff: helped us find a great tailor for a last minute job before a wedding we were attending.
I love the decor, especially the bar.

I recently spent two nights at the Toren in Amsterdam, while on vacation. Firstly, the staff is very helpful, warm and welcoming. The room was nice with an art deco kind of feel. The rooms are deep reds and blacks, with modern technology. The internet is free and quick. The bathrooms are nice with all necessary amenities. The location, itself, is good being just a block from the Ann Frank house - though public transit is several blocks away. I find the layout of Amsterdam very confusing, so I kept getting lost on my way back and forth. However, this is a reflection on my ineptitude, not the hotels. Overall, this is a great place to stay in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Request a canal view, though they will require an extra charge, most likely.

Just perfect! We stayed 3 nights at The Toren. It was very clean, spacious room, fantastic location, delicious huge breakfast, attention to detail, attentive staff and owner. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay at The Toren if we return to Amsterdam. Even received an email from the owners after we returned home. Now that is something you usually do not expect. I usually do not like to write reviews, but this hotel deserves to be complimented.

Hotel was Lovely and the room we stayed in was nice and quiet. Everyone were lovely and very helpful. But it was a girl called Stephanie, who worked on the Reception who stood out for me! She could not have done anymore for us. Was Gutted that we could only get 2 nights due to The Toren been fully booked. But will Definitely be returning and would advise anyone to book into this hotel as you would not be disappointed!

Well what can i say apart from absolutely superb from arriving to departing. Myself and my wife stayed here for two nights in the garden room. What started out a nightmare when easy jet decided to send me a text 2 and a half hours before departure that our flight was cancelled so it was a mad rush to book a Eurostar for the journey it was well worth the trip. Upon arrival we were greeted in reception by a very helpful and friendly receptionist when we were brought to our room which was located at the back of the hotel in the room they had left us a bottle of champagne, strawberries and chocolates all complimentary because i had mentioned on the booking form that it was our anniversary.The room itself was out of this world from the mood lighting to the jacuzzi and the smart toilet. The ceiling had skylights that could be opened and we also had our own private patio area. I would throughly recommend this hotel and would say its is one of the nicest friendliest hotels i have ever stayed in full stop. The lunch by the way was superb as well i would give this hotel a 12 out of ten what more can i say apart from the bar and cocktails are wicked too!!

Room Tip: garden room
