Just returned from our second stay in the amazing Bridal Suite at Hotel Toren. It is, without any doubt, the most luxurious, romantic hotel that we have ever stayed in. We stayed to celebrate our engagement and was delighted to have been offered a complimentary bottle of champage. Rather cheekily, we asked for wine instead and to our surprise, we returned from dinner to find not just wine but chocolates and fresh strawberries too - a very, very nice touch.
I travel quite a bit due to my work so I have stayed at hundreds of places, but Toren really is miles ahead. The staff are efficient, genuinely friendly and discrete.
The decor is opulent - the attention to detail of the designers is evident. The hotel bar is pefect for an indulgent drink.
The bridal suite is in a separate building a few doors down from the main reception area so it really feels like your own private apartment. The room itself is enormous; 70m2. It features high ceilings, huge windows, a marble fireplace, the biggest 4 poster bed you'll ever see, flatscreen TV, DVD player, ipod dock, hi-fi, Nespresso coffee machine and minibar.
The absolute best part of this room is the bathroom. In the bedroom, there is a staircase leading down to a beautiful huge marble bathroom; his'n'hers basins, a double headed shower and most importantly, a jacuzzi with ample room for 2!
The room was incredibly quiet (although the cleaners were a little noisy in the surrounding rooms when we checked in at around 2pm) but this was over quickly.
Location wise its situated on a relatively quiet street with shops, restaurants and bars nearby. Dam square is about 5 mins walk away. If you're looking for a bite to eat, I reccomend Restaurant De Struisvogel, about 4 mins walk away on the same street (number 168 I think).
You should note that the bridal suite is due for refurbishment very soon, to bring the decor in line with the rest of the hotel. No doubt it will look great so we hope to be back again soon to check it out.
Overall, if you're looking for a special, luxurious place to stay whilst in Amsterdam, you will not be dissapointed at the Toren.
