Spent one night here to celebrate my husband's birthday and our wedding anniversary. Absolutely beautiful hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. Champagne and truffles and strawberries awaited us on arrival with a lovely letter congratulating us. Would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you for making us feel so welcome and special.

We wrapped up our European vacation with two nights at The Toren. We sprang for the canal-view room with jacuzzi tub, and while it was very nice, I probably wouldn't pay that much again. We visited Amsterdam in mid-July, but during a period when the temperature reached a high of 60°F (16°C). When we entered the room, the air conditioning... More

Stayed with family for 4 nights. Hotel decor a little bit different which sets this hotel apart from run of the mill. We found the staff (reception, waiters etc) to be extremely friendly and helpful. Location very good, only a short walk to the New Church and main square. Lots of small bars and restaurants in the area to choose... More

Highly recommend this hotel to all travellers. The staff are friendly and attentive, hotel is very clean and modern. Quite expensive, but well worth it for a city break. Gluten free diets catered for without any fuss

My daughter and I spent three nights at the Toren in Amsterdam. The hotel is a small, cozy boutique hotel with an excellent location on one of the main canals. From the breakfast room you have a wonderful view of the canal. The rooms are nicely furnished but rather small (we stayed in a standard double room). The staff was... More

We stayed here to celebrate a family birthday, taking two rooms on the ground floor backing onto the garden. Once we had adjusted to the noise of the airconditioning (necessary to keep the rooms cool for sleeping), the rooms were very comfortable, with excellent facilities. What sets this hotel apart is the service. Everyone at the reception desk went out... More

OK. After reading all these reviews, I thought that no place could ACTUALLY live up to the praise that these reviewers are heaping on this hotel. I expected it to be nice, but not THIS nice. I was wrong. This hotel has staff that bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable in every way! The location is perfect. It... More

It's only been a few hours since I've arrived back home from my short trip to Amsterdam. Luckly, back in the days I chose The Toren as my hotel and I'm very happy for that. Even though that I had a small room — it was very comfortable, stylish and very nice for a person like me. But lets get... More

We booked two normal rooms at this hotel for two nights and we enjoyed it! Staffs were friendly and played along with all our jokes. They were willing to help you with anything from giving you advice which restaurants to go (and not to), where to walk and what to do. The rooms were amazing. I'd never been so caffeine... More

Lovely hotel. Room was large, clean and decorated beautifully. Staff were extremely helpful, especially the bar staff that made the most amazing cocktails (try the Sebastian). Lovely garden with a relaxing atmosphere, perfect for putting your feet up drinking a glass of wine and chatting with friends. I would most definitely recommend The Toren!
