“Great hotel and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Thanks to all the reviews, we stayed here for three nights. I loved the location in the Jordaan area. The hotel is on a canal and we were able to walk everywhere. We were in the annex with views in the back of the hotel. It was wonderful. We enjoyed the neighborhood feel. It is only blocks from the Anne Frank House and canal tours. It was a 20 min walk to the major museums. The streets in this area seem safe. I would stay here again, and I like luxury.

Excellent!
We reserved the biggest room. It was located a few houses further away than the actual hotel and suited several other rooms. Ours was located on the back of the building, had big windows, a massive bed with a lot of pillows, coffee and tea making facilities, a big bathroom downstairs with a bubble bath, plenty of towels,.. heavenly!
Nice restaurants closeby.
1 remark, there is practically no parking, but thats the problem in whole Amsterdam. Parking rates are dull.

Room Tip: Take the biggest room, you won't regret it!

This hotel was a block from the Anne Frank House, which was perfect because that was on our list while we were in Amsterdam. (See my recommendation on arrival at the Anne Frank House). The room was very unique and great in size. We had a view that faced the river and was very pretty during the evening times with the street lights. The shower was great and also included a very large jacuzzi tub. You can also rent bikes [a MUST] right from the hotel for a full 24hrs which was very convenient and perfect for our 2 day stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river are large and sunny.

We arrived home from our month long holiday to find an email from the owners of this wonderful holiday, thanking us for staying at their hotel. Somehow we were not surprised as from the time you enter this lovely hotel, the staff are amazing, the best we've ever encountered in many years of travelling. We had a lovely spa suite looking on to a garden in the heart of downtown Amsterdam. Just 10 minutes casual walk from Dam Square and on a major canal, this hotel is perfect for a city stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. the rooms are very comfortable with even an expresso coffee machine, the breakfast is very good and it was always a delight to return to after a day of sightseeing.We will definitely only stay here when we return to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: We had room #6.

Wow!
Where do I begin, this is by far one of the best hotels my wife and I have ever stayed in.
From the moment I booked The Toren and the service I received from the team replying to my endless emails about what to do and directions and arranging a few surprises for my wife (it was for her birthday), to the moment we arrived I have nothing but praise for each and everyone of the team.
We had a beautiful room overlooking the canal , also had a jacuzzi , which was very nice after a long day exploring Amsterdam.
Nothing was too much trouble , even to the point in the bar when I asked for a cocktail that was not on the list the bartender went online and found out how to make it, tasted perfect.
The breakfast was very nice also,
The location is perfect if you like a very nice area and bars and not too far from the busyness of Amsterdam.
Nice and quiet area ,
If you want to stay at a very special hotel then look no further, choose The Toren
Will we be back , you better believe it
Thanks again to everyone at The Toren for making our stay perfect

This was our second visit to the Toren and was even better than our first. The staff are wonderful, attention to detail is fantastic. Rooms are spotless and having amazing views directly on the canal. Breakfast is superb, looking forward to another visit soon.
