“Outstanding.... My Kind of Place!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

As it was my first visit to Amsterdam and I was also celebrating my birthday, I wanted somewhere special to stay and the Toren was just the place. The hotel is beautifully decorated, elegantly furnished and maintained. The rooms are cosy, warm, stylish, filled with character and charm. The champagne, strawberries and chocolates left in my room upon arrival was a wonderful surprise and much appreciated. It is situated in a fantastic location overlooking the canal and within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes and tourist attractions. The staff were lovely and friendly and always on hand with any help and advice during my stay. The breakfast is delicious and there’s plenty of choice. I’ve stayed in a fair number of boutique hotels, but the Toren is by far the best and I would highly recommend it. I can’t wait to visit again real soon!

You cannot go wrong booking this hotel. It is in a great location in the city. Upon arrival, the front desk staff we very helpful and courteous. We stayed in the "annex" building, a short walk to the main building. The room was exactly what we expected, with a large double bed and a single. Room size was standard size and quiet.The room was very clean, fresh towels every day. We stayed for 4 days and were pleased with the helpfulness of the staff for assisting us on places to see. We had drinks and food in the bar, both of which were excellent. You cannot go wrong booking this hotel.

This is one of the most beautiful, unique and charming boutique hotels that I have ever stayed in. The service is exceptional, even before arriving in Amsterdam they provided information about everything, answered questions and provided insight. The location is great, the rooms are warm and comfortable, slept like a baby and actually used the 2 person jacuzzi twice after two long days on our feet sightseeing. The bar which also serves as a place for breakfast is one of the most coolest and unique ones you will ever see in a hotel. If you want a beatiful boutique hotel experience then stay at The Toren.

Room Tip: Garden room suite on the first floor of the main building is great and has its own patio... Loved it...

This was my 1st trip to Amsterdam and was lucky to have stayed here. The location is amazing. A couple blocks from Ann Frank house to give you an idea.

The hotel itself is amazingly elegant.

My room was a little small due to my American standards, but when in it I was comfortable and cozy.

The breakfast was superb, too.

From start to finish, the staff were a delight and incredibly helpful. The old-style, luxury "bordello" feel to the public rooms was cozy. The rooms were excellent, Delightfully furnished, well maintained and cleaned - and the chocolates and strawberries in the room on arrival were excellent and appreciated. 50% discount on a well-stocked breakfast due to booking with "Easytobook" was also appreciated.

All the many and consistently good reviews about The Toren ate correct--it is a wonderful hotel, in great location, of the right size, and with outstanding service, including looking after gluten-free needs at breakfast. It deserves its high ranking.

stayed here in nov with my wife and my brother, it was very close to the grey area coffe shop, our favorite coffe shop in amsterdam, and also right next to anne frank house, was in walking distance to pretty much everything and provided fresh hot towels everyday! the breakfast was also very good and the housekeeper cleaned everyday and organized for us! The hotel also provided umbrellas on the days it rained, and has a small private bar to catch a quick drink before heading out to explore.
