“The Ultimate Boutique hotel in Amsterdam !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2010

Had a splendid time at the Toren, once more.

The whole personnel (front desk, barmen, luggage handlers) deserve a triple AAA rating,

This is the type of place where serenity, discretion & efficient service get a whole new meaning.

Can't thank enough the lady from Management who called me back and found a solution to get me a room matching my requirements - the suites and jacuzzi rooms were all booked on that week end for some reason but she still figured something out.

I've tried quite a few 5+ starred hotels across the board - on business or leisure - and I have to say the Toren for me ranks in my top 5 - worldwide.

Just returned from our 4th visit to this fantastic Amsterdam hotel. Have been visiting Amserdam for many, many years and never found an hotel worth a return visit. Then we found The Toren! This place is warm and welcoming, comfortable, smart, clean and cosy. In a super location which is peaceful yet ideal for getting to the best places to visit and eat. The decor is 'exciting' and wonderfully OTT. We have stayed in the Garden Cottage (a detached property in the garden at the rear of the Hotel), room 222 and room 227 - we have found each of these a real treat - with superb facilities. The owners and their team could not be more friendly and efficient - this really is the only place to stay whilst in Amsterdam. Thank you so much. Ian and Alan

The Toren hotel is a gorgeous boutique hotel right in the centre of Amsterdam. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough to make us comfortable and my 2 year old daughter was treated like a princess. The decor is very elaborate and theatrical and the garden is very stylish too. There is a generous and varied breakfast buffet.

My husband and I stayed at the Toren in February 2010. The vibrant decor gives the place a ton of character and extends into the beautiful, immaculately clean rooms. The jacuzzi was amazing and the shower had great pressure. The hotel bar was so comfortable and the staff was so inviting, it was hard to get motivated to go out. Even the hotel food was delicious (which you will NEVER find in the US), not to mention they had a great wine list and cocktail menu. If you have questions about where to go in the city, anyone in the staff can help and they are happy to line up activities, reservations, and/or taxis for you. The hotel is centrally-located so we walked everywhere. The neighborhood is gorgeous and felt safe even at night. There are many restaurants, sights, and other points of interest within walking distance and the train station is only about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. This was our first time in Amsterdam and we will DEFINITELY be back to the Toren if we return to the NL. We got a terrible exchange rate so the price was a high, but still well worth it.

We partly chose this hotel thanks to the Trip Advisor reviews and it was everything that i had hoped for. I loved the decor, it was plush, opulent and original. On arrival and during the whole stay the staff couldn't have been nicer and all staff whether in the reception or the restaurant were consistently polite and cheerful. Our room was comfortable and nicely decorated with a lovely view over the canal and the location was quiet however within easy walking distance to Damm Square and the numerous restaurants and bars throughout the whole area. Breakfast was good with a variety of hot food consisting of scrambled egg, bacon, mushrooms etc and a nice range of continental breakfast and very good coffee, we didn't have an evening meal there purely because there was too much choice throughout the city. I was satisfied that the price we paid for the hotel for the duration of our stay was well worth it and i would undoubtedly stay here again.

We recently had our first night away without the kids and booked a night in Amsterdam at The Toren. The staff kindly upgraded us to the garden cottage which was cosy and romantic with a relaxing jacuzzi and had the best bed ever. Staff were really helpful and friendly and around if you needed them. The hotel was in a good position with everything pretty walkable.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and will be going back ourselves in the near future.

Great hotel, for my trip I used: www.timeinamsterdam.com
A really convenient site with a lot of information, and so I booked this hotel. Great hotel in a great neighbor and it’s so authentic. I really enjoyed my trip to Amsterdam due to the staff and the whole hotel.
