When we were in Amsterdam in June, we decided to try two hotels, so we stayed 3 nights at The Ambassade and one night at The Toren. Here on Trip Advisor I noticed that The Toren is rated a little higher than The Ambassade, but I'm not sure I agree with that. Both hotels are located on beautiful canals and are in groups of older houses. The canal location of The Ambassade is a little bit prettier and is also about 6 blocks closer to major sites like the museums and parks. The Toren is very attractive, but it depends on your taste which hotel you prefer. The Toren is fixed up to be a little more opulent looking at first sight: velvet trimmings, dark marble, etc, whereas the Ambassade is lighter and more Dutch in general. The rooms are similar size, but the Ambassade was a little more comfortable (canal view room). The staff at both hotels are friendly and efficient. So, in all, it's fair to rate the two hotels very similarly, but don't jump to the conclusion that the Toren is better. Prices are about the same at both locations. I highly recommend both of them, but prefer the Ambassade.
