As travelers to Amsterdam know, hotels tend to be pricey and you don't always get quality or comfort (or courteousness) for your money. This has often been the case whenever we have taken a getaway weekend in Amsterdam. Thankfully Toren was different.
The Toren's location is perfect--on a quiet part of a canal street, in easy walking distance of attractions or tram stops.
We were so pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the hotel. Situated in an old canal house, the decor is baroque. A bit over the top in some parts, but the overall effect is far more luxurious and visually satisfying than the concept-less, bare bones style of many other places we've stayed. The standard double room was a bit small, as most hotel rooms in Amsterdam tend to be, but it was SO comfortable! A complimentary in room Nespresso machine was the perfect amenity after a day of walking the city. The bed was so comfortable to cuddle up in that one afternoon after being caught in the rain we came back to change and got so comfortable that we cuddled up, ordered room service, and watched a movie instead. The bathroom was new, modern, immaculate.
Above and beyond that, the staff were friendly and courteous--also not typical in Amsterdam. They even surprised us one day with a chilled bottle of champagne, and martini glasses filled with chocolates and strawberries.
We will definitely be staying at the Toren on our future trips to Amsterdam. I can't recommend it highly enough.
