I stayed here during a business trip in 2016. The location is nice staff very friendly but I believe the hotel is a bit overpriced for what you get. The configuration of my room was strange with the master bedroom in a loft up some very steep stairs. The bathroom was on the first level and was very tight and... More

Loved the location, the hotel and everything about it. Booked through Amex platinum so had breakfast included. The beds are one of the most comfortable ones. The bathroom is amazing. Room is a bit smallish but didn't mind it because we were out and about. The courtyard is great place to get a drink. Plus the staff was so so... More

The perfect place for us in Amsterdam. Service is impeccable as was the room. After a 12 hour flight the resaturant (and the grey goose cosmos) was the perfect trip kick off. Good location, incredibly attentive staff and an amazing vibe!

Part of a new international chain, The Dylan Amsterdam is a classic boutique hotel housed in five Golden Age canal houses knocked together. Its location on the elegant, quiet Keizersgracht canal is walking distance from almost everything you would want to see in the old city: museums, restaurants, shopping all within easy reach. The service is impeccable and friendly. It... More
