Great location, wonderful building and spacious rooms. The whole building is a discovery with great authentic places to have a coffee at the fireplace, dinner at one of the cozy restaurants, or drinks in the bar. The room was spacious with a wonderful canal view, very well decorated. You step out of the hotel and you're in walking distance from...

The lobby, bar area, restaurant and breakfast rooms are super cool, aesthetically interesting and pleasant to spend time in. Food at...

spent the morning at this lovely hotel right on the canal in July. Bride and groom entered via a lovely shaded courtyard. Wedding ceremony was conducted in a light airy room decorated tastefully. Fantastic nibbles served before the ceremony. Fantastic location.

Ive been to Amsterdam about 20 times on business over the years. Ive stayed mostly at luxury flats and another nice hotel (Hotel Estherea). The Dylan Amsterdam hits every mark perfectly.

Stayed there with my boyfriend on a romantic weekend in Amsterdam, and we both loved the stylish yet friendly atmosphere of the hotel. We had a very good surprise with the room as it was bigger than what the pictures looked, and service was amazing, discreet and efficient.

A beautiful hotel, very stylish. Wonderful service, friendly and helpful staff. Big rooms (could be cosier, but good anyway). Nice location. Close to everything and very intimate at the same time. Lobby with a fireplace is perfect in the rainy weather. Great restaurant with a Michelin star. Wine card is very good. Small details that make you happy.

Located on a quiet canal, the Dylan is the perfect place to come home to after touring the city. It is dark, comforting and makes you feel stylish and sexy. We had a great room overlooking the canal, ( room #39). Huge by any standards. Service was great and unobtrusive. The common areas are all the photos promise...and more. It...
