“Love it!! Classic in January”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

We really impressed with this little boutique hotel. We had an upgrade to the jacuzzi room plus a bottle of champange (Moet, not a cheap sparking wine) for our anniversary which was the best treat. Although our room was in another building from the main reception but it's not a big deal. All the staff are lovely and willing to help. Breakfast was small choices but so lovely.
It was heavy snow in Amsterdam while we were there, and a lot of places were not opened on monday. but some how we loved it. Hotel's decor, the weather outside, atmosphere of Amsterdam were taking us back to somewhere in 20s or during the first world war:) A lots of nice cosy restaurant nearby also.

Been there in a trip to Amsterdam I was shock (in a good way) with this hotel. Is a compendium of KLM-houses in the Keizersgracht street ;-) The lobby bar is great, they have spirits from around the world and the rooms are rooms from the houses remixed as hotel facilities. The tiny personal room in which I stayed was tiny but cozy. The linen and bath was excellent, also the tea and coffee that was included in the room. It's a hotel facing the channels and close to hot spots of Amsterdam, very good restaurants around and near Amsterdam Centraal Station.

We booked The Toren based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we loved it. From the great location to the fabulous service we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate recommending The Toren to anyone staying in Amsterdam. Located on one of the picturesque canals it is located close to most of the major attractions. Not many hotel rooms (when you actually get there) look like the photo's. Not so The Toren. The rooms are gorgeous, they have a traditional feel with all the modern luxuries. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: For added luxury during your stay book a room with a jacuzzi. Great after a long day walking around...

Our stay at the Hotel Toren was really special. The location of the hotel is perfect, close to the Jordan area. The room had a jacuzzi that was a real stress buster. Special mention must go to the receptionists who helpfully spent time pointing out the places worth visiting in the immediate area. Both the receptionist on arrival and on departure were , in my experience the best I have seen in 40 years of travelling around the World. - it's no coincidence that this hotel is consistently highly rated. If you're looking for a great hotel in Amsterdam look no further.

We had reserved the garden suite for a 3 night stay and loved it so much we came back after a few days in Paris to stay for the remainder of our vacation. The staff was excellent, the location perfect and the room was incredible! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and highly recommend this hotel. We hope we can visit again soon!

In minus degrees The Toren is located overlooking the lovely canals, so close to all the sites we couldnt have picked a more perfect hotel with its location. The reception/concierge girls were amazing - recommended and booked great restaurants for us (one especially called Max) we will fly back to eat there and stay again at the Toren. Some of the best service I have ever recieved in europe! and I use to work at the Ritz-Carlton as a quality leader.... service is my one big must! Thank you Hotel Toren we will be back! Another tip are the Sandeman free tours - so informative and fun! Lee was especially fantastic - you cant miss her she has Red hair. Have fun x
