I spent the weekend in Amsterdam and stayed at The Dylan and had a fantastic stay. Everyone was both genuine and helpful with all our questions and their own suggestions. The room was recently upgraded and was great with the spaciousness and cleanliness. The only item we weren't incredibly fond of is that the bathroom was up a flight of...

I loved our stay at the Dylan. Everyone was very nice and helpful. I love boutique hotels that still offer luxury which the Dylan provides. There is a charm about the Dylan that you don't get at a chain hotel; therefore, we got a better feel for the city. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking for...

This was my second stay for business at the Dylan and I absolutely love this hotel. Beautiful, comfortable rooms, excellent location, and impeccable, personalized service. The breakfast is particularly nice, and the restaurant and bar are wonderful. I highly recommend the Dylan and will certainly return the next time I'm in Amsterdam.
