“forget the rest , stay at the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Wow!
Where do I begin, this is by far one of the best hotels my wife and I have ever stayed in.
From the moment I booked The Toren and the service I received from the team replying to my endless emails about what to do and directions and arranging a few surprises for my wife (it was for her birthday), to the moment we arrived I have nothing but praise for each and everyone of the team.
We had a beautiful room overlooking the canal , also had a jacuzzi , which was very nice after a long day exploring Amsterdam.
Nothing was too much trouble , even to the point in the bar when I asked for a cocktail that was not on the list the bartender went online and found out how to make it, tasted perfect.
The breakfast was very nice also,
The location is perfect if you like a very nice area and bars and not too far from the busyness of Amsterdam.
Nice and quiet area ,
If you want to stay at a very special hotel then look no further, choose The Toren
Will we be back , you better believe it
Thanks again to everyone at The Toren for making our stay perfect

This was our second visit to the Toren and was even better than our first. The staff are wonderful, attention to detail is fantastic. Rooms are spotless and having amazing views directly on the canal. Breakfast is superb, looking forward to another visit soon.

Located in a good part of the city. Excellent attitude and service by the staff. One of the best beds. I definately liked the interiour style of our jnr suite ( we're upgraded by The Toren from deluxe). Our room had a small private spa in it. We loved it! This stands out from the other luxury hotels. This was very good value for the money.

I booked this hotel after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor but was still pleasantly surprised by just HOW good it was. The location cannot be beaten - in a wonderful district and right at the side of the canal. We had two rooms, a superior double and a junior suite, both of which were superb. Luxurious fabrics, red, gold and black, and nothing worn or tired. The Superior Double had a whirlpool bath in the bedroom and the Junior Suite even had a garden! The bar was really opulent and comfortable and this is where breakfast was served. There was a really good choice to cater for all tastes and the staff constantly topped everything up. All the staff were friendly and courteous and the reception staff in particular were extremely helpful, giving directions and booking restaurants. We stayed for three nights and on each night had dinner in restaurants recommended by the hotel. They went to a lot of trouble to establish what kind of restaurant we would like and all three meals were fantastic! I assumed this meant the standard must be very high in Amsterdam generally but have been assured by friends since my return that Amsterdam does have bad restaurants too! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and its staff to anyone.

The staff at this hotel are spectacular and go out of their way to make guests feel comfortable. I arrived very early in the morning after having stayed at an awful place in Amsterdam and the hotel management at The Toren not only made sure that I got my room right away eventhough check in wasn't until 2/3pm - but they also provided me with complimentary breakfast to help start off the morning right! The hotel is also located close to some amazing local pubs!

My husband and I stayed at The Toren last month and had a wonderful experience! The rooms were spacious--especially by European standards--with a lovely bathroom and a view of the courtyard. The reception desk/concierge were amazing. They helped with restaurant suggestions, and other activities to make our time in Amsterdam delightful. They really were spectacular on the day we were leaving and supposed to take a train to Paris. We found out that the trains were on strike. Mieka at the front desk called several airlines and was able to get us on a flight and arrange for transportation for us quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend The Toren.

Our stay here was a last minute substitution and it was a great one! The location (next to Jordaan neighborhood) is absolutely perfect. The canal view was amazing. The area was quiet at night and lively and interesting during the day. It is within walking distance to so many different things; museums, good food and drink. Really just a lovely place with lovely staff and great room amenities.

Room Tip: Opt for a canal view, it is amazing!
