“perfect for romance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

An amazing place for a romantic get-away. I can only say the best about the garden cottage and the whole experience. The interior speaks for itself: beautiful indulgent décor with perfect finishing touches, great lighting, comfortable bed, bathtub with jacuzzi, shower, a nespresso machine, and soft gowns.
Breakfast is much recommended: for app 15 Euros you get a selection of fresh and cooked foods which would be hard to match at a normal café.
The staff is highly attentive yet without subservience, and we much enjoyed our late night chat with the barman.
Much recommended and definitely would love to return.

We had a very large room in the hotel's annex (just a few doors down from the main house), overlooking the canal. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom up to date.
The concierge and staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is walking distance from the Ann Frank House and some delightful restaurants on a nearby side street.

Room Tip: Our room was 421 in the Annex (which is the second floor facing the canal). It was quiet.

Great hotel. Wonderful, Quiet location. We walked just about everywhere. Outstanding staff. Beautiful bar for drinks. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. There is so much to experience in Amsterdam and staying at the Toren was a real joy.

Room Tip: We chose the room with whirlpool tub and a door to a small patio.

We stayed there for one night recently and found it to be wonderful. The lobby and bar are opulent and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The room was not massive but more than enough for two with a very comfortable bed and good attention to detail. There was a fridge and coffee making facilities. The bath was big enough for two. The hotel location is very close to Anne Frank House in popular Jordaanes area and walkable from the train station although there are tram stops nearby. You can also do a Canal tour from just round the corner. It was the perfect hotel for a birthday treat, I don't think we could have afforded a whole week there! Well worth a visit.

What stands out is the warm greeting and continuous care and attention from the staff. Nothing is too much trouble! The hotel itself is charming with old-fashioned decor and furnisings in the main rooms but fully modernised bedrooms. Breakfast is top class.The location is on a quiet street overlooking one of the canals.There is a lift for those who find steep stairs a challenge. The owners take a personal interest in their guests and it is clear to me that they set the tone of this superb hotel. I will not look anywhere else when I return to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: I stayed in the main hotel and so cannot comment on the annex. The rooms were excellent and quiet.

First visit to Amsterdam. Toren Hotel is first class. Very central location for everything the city has to offer, and only about 15 mins walk from the station.
Helpful and welcoming staff. Clean , comfortable and quiet room. ( Stayed in the main hotel so cannot comment on the annex down the street ).
Booked a hotel deal for 3 nights which included an excellent daily breakfast.
Decor is quite dark but in keeping with this very old canal-side building.
Plenty of umbrellas to borrow, which was handy as it rained every day during our stay.
Hotel felt individual, very much 'part of the city', and a welcome change from multi-national chains.

Room Tip: Probably best to check if room will be in the main hotel, or in an annex building four doors away.

I found the Toren on Tripadvisor and booked two nights during a business conference in Amsterdam. They quickly came back thanking me for the reservation, but warned me about the size of the room - it was one of two "compact" rooms, so they wanted to make sure I knew in advance. Being a good corporate citizen I decide not to upgrade and stay in the less expensive room.

Well, it was small, but it had everything necessary - and who sits in their room when visiting Amsterdam? The room was very clean, the bed was twin size but comfortable and the shower was also small but the large shower head was perfect.

There was a nice continental breakfast in the restaurant with great coffee. The same room doubles as the bar where we had a few late night drinks. It was after closing time, but the staff did not rush us. The bar and restaurant staff were incredibly courteous and helpful. In fact, one of the best features of the hotel are the people that clearly want to make your stay as nice
as possible. They genuinely care about their guest, which makes this little boutique hotel worth coming back to.

The hotel is situated on Keizersgracht which is close enough to central Amsterdam but in a quaint neighbourhood, on a quiet canal and far enough away from the party action. I plan to book a bigger room here or at their sister hotel Sebastian with my family over the summer.
