We stayed at the Hotel Toren in the Royal bridal suite. Although the room is impressive it is a bit "Gothic" and could do with a bit of a revamp, tired black plastic orchids need replacing with something a bit more appealing. There is a roof top garden just outside the room with seating but no proper access, air conditioning and irrigation pipes spoil what could be a nice additional feature to the room.
The stairs down to the impressive bathroom complete with double jacuzzi are steep and narrow, if you are not steady on your feet don't book this room.
The only other bad point is that this room and some others are in an annexe a few houses away from the main hotel so you do feel a little left out.
The reception and other staff are very welcoming and very helpful.
The bed is absolutely huge and very comfortable.
Take an Ipod with you, there are plenty of ipod docks in the room. The television channel choice is pathetic.
Watch out for the people on bikes in Amsterdam, they give way to nobody including pedestrians. You always feel you are going to get slammed into by someone on a bike, very annoying!!!
Take a good map with you, you will get lost otherwise as everywhere looks the same.
It is a beautiful city though and you won't be disappointed.
