Reviewed 29 April 2012

My wife booked us for a 2 night stay for my 30th birthday. She chose The Toren based on Tripadvisor reviews.

The good lady had notified the hotel of the special occasion & on arrival i was congratulated by the friendly reception staff who then took some time to help us with some info on Amsterdam. The hotel had kindly upgraded our room (no. 404) which was in a seperate building, just 50 metres (approx) down the street. This wasn't the inconvenience we thought it may be.

The room was lovely. Beautiful decor, extremely clean, lovely open plan spa bathroom & access to a patio (shared with another room). To top it all off we were welcomed by a bottle of champagne, chocolates & strawberries. In addition a personal letter from the hotel owners congratulating me on my birthday. My wife & i felt that the efforts made by The Toren were genuine rather than token gestures u may get elsewhere.

All staff were very, very friendly & helpful in terms of booking taxis/restaurants, etc.

The restaurant/bar is very nice. Great choice for the breakfast including cooked & continental.

Wonderful location, 3min walk from Anne Frank house, facing onto one of the many scenic canals. Amsterdam is a lovely & good sized city for wandering about in.

Would genuinly recommend this hotel. Have stayed in some lovely, large hotels (Wynn - Las Vegas, Waldorf Astoria - NY, Peninsula - Hong Kong) but really enjoyed staying in a small yet beautiful hotel like this, which matches the atmosphere of Amsterdam.

The staff were incredibly pleasant and helpful, great location, clean hotel and room, great location in Amsterdam - I would definitely stay again, but would like to go for longer and with a top room (loved the bath!) this could prove to be quite costly for Amsterdam so probably best just for a special night or two - otherwise very pleased!

Just come back from a couple of days at The Toren. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We had one of the recently refurbished standard rooms which was fantastic: large and very well equipped. Breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the recently refurbished rooms

This is my favourite hotel I have ever stayed at. I was in a small, single room, which was substantially cheaper than their other rooms (it was tiny) but no less comfortable or luxurious. Beautiful and uniquely decorated, with all of the amenities and then some (bathrobe, slippers). Internet access everywhere. At first I was disappointed that my room was not in the main building, but it was completely fine and as a woman travelling solo I still felt completely comfortable and secure. The room even had a double door, with a vestibule entrance, an additional lock as well as a chain.

My booking did not include breakfast, but the hotel was kind enough to provide it me free of charge - normally costs 14 euros. And it would have been worth 14 euros! The bar is lovely as well with great wine selections and these is a great garden out back as well to enjoy a drink with fresh air or a cigarette, both of which I did daily.

The staff were extremely friendly, knowledgable and accommodating as well. They made wonderful restaurant suggestions and were happy to make reservations on my behalf. If you order a wake-up call, which is automated, the front desk will call you personally to ensure that it came.

Brilliant location as well! Walking distance to everywhere (but central Amsterdam is fairly small).

Really my favourite hotel yet. I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: I stayed in the cheapest room and it was still lovely. But no view - at least not in the second buil...

We read all the reviews here and booked ahead for a bit of luxury after a canal/ bike cruise. It was just the best. Easily the most comfortable bed ever. Bathrooms ultra modern and decor deep romantic colors. It was a bit surprised at the darkness of the purples and maroons but it grew on me and I saw how cleverly it had all been put together. They have breakfast in their tiny lounge and you can sit on the soft sofas and have the buffet as late as 11 am. The bar at the other end of the same room is also open til 1 am and really worth a visit just to see how splendid it is. They have arrangements with Christophe's a restaurant round the corner for food prepared by a chef of Michelin star awards, to order in and serve in your room but much nicer to choose the little window table in their lounge. The staff couldn't be more helpful and will buy you boat trip tickets or any of the museum entrances which are worth getting ahead to avoid the huge lines at the door. The location also means you can walk anywhere and they have bikes if you care to brave it out there with everyone else! Any return to Amsterdam will find me at the Toren!
