“A hotel that is the perfect host”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

The hotel is perfectly located in Amsterdam and you are in walking distance of all the sights. The staff and owners are very focused on their guests ensuring that any issue (small or big) is addressed immediately. We were in their bar and the server overheard one couple talk about a faulty jacuzzi and they immediately alerted the front desk who then addressed the issue to the surprise of the guests. The staff always demonstrated that they care about their guests whether it was conversing with their guests on their day or through providing recommendations. Amsterdam is a very beautiful city and the Toren is the perfect host.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor rooms as they are close to the passageway to the gardens

A fantastic privately owned hotel in a great location. Great location for a romantic break. Sumptuous bedding and decor in the rooms. Recommend room with spa bath for that little bit extra. Would definitely go back when next in Amsterdam. Great restaurants just around the corner as well

I was warmly greeted upon checking in and presented with a map of Amsterdam and given useful travel tips. My single room was small (120 sq ft), but the hotel had already informed me of this beforehand so it wasn't a surprise. Despite having a super single bed, the room actually felt spacious enough (bathroom was a little cramped), largely due to the ceiling height (close to 4m, I'd reckon). Welcome chocolate/strawberries and umbrellas at the door were a nice touch; the furnishings and fixtures ooze old world luxury. My bed was a little soft and creaked quite a bit though. Good enough location - everything is generally within walking distance.

Room Tip: One with a hot tub!!!!!!!

My husband and I were unexpectedly stranded at the Amsterdam airport for 24 hours. I checked trip advisor and found this hotel. We called and reserved a room. Took the train from airport to central station, very easy walk to hotel. Extremely friendly, helpful and attentive staff -- gave us good suggestions about how to spend the afternoon (canal tour, location was a block away), recommendations for a casual restaurant for dinner (we had no luggage and were informally addressed), etc. The location of the hotel is perfect -- close Anne Frank museum, shopping, and good restaurants. Our room was in the annex, very well equipped, clean and nice size, esp by European standards. The decor is a bit over the top, but that is the style! The bar in the main hotel is very warm and friendly. Really a perfect hotel.

I just stayed here for the weekend and I can't reccommend The Toren hotel highly enough. Elegant, cool, sophisticated and with impeccable service.

Great location, phenomenal staff and a beautiful hotel. Go for a room with a hot tub, you won't be disappointed.

We will definitely be visiting this hotel again, I could not imagine staying anywhere else in Amsterdam.

Wonderful hotel, pleasant, clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Close to the train station, sites, cafes and shopping. We were right there. Staff was very helpful and informative. We stayed in the annex which was fine, room was bigger than I anticipated. Toiletries were classy, bathroom was nice, clean and comfortable. Stay was worth the price. Our room had no view but it was ok because we were out all day.
