My cousin and I spent three nights at the Toren to start our European vacation. I think this is quite possibly the best hotel experience we have ever had. The reception staff came outside to assist the taxi driver with our luggage when we first arrived. Our room was not ready so we were invited to enjoy a drink in the bar while our room was prepared. A young man then came shortly to take us to our room and explained the history of the beautiful building as he escorted us. The hotel is in a building built in 1605 with 38 rooms. Even though the building is old, there is none of that "old building" smell you sometimes encounter in old hotels. The room was beautiful with a marble bath, and the bed linens were very elegant. The room was quiet - we were never bothered by staff or other guests. And the staff was fabulous. Everyone there from reception to restaurant/bar staff just couldn't do enough for us. We came back one night after 10pm, not having had dinner and they prepared sandwiches and dessert for us. When needing to make reservations for our train to Paris, Melany handled it by phone. When finding out that there were none available (and we had a room booked in Paris), she worked for 45 minutes by phone to get us what we needed. No request was too much for Melany and Priscilla, who both worked the reception area. The hotel is located in a nice area - away from the seedier parts of Amsterdam. It is just around the corner from the Ann Franck House, and close to transportation to other parts of the city. If I travel to Amsterdam again, I will definitely book this hotel. It really was remarkable!
