    Great

    Staff, breakfast, room: everything is fine.

    This is rather a personal opinion. I don't like dark hotels, but in an old city, and certainly on the canals, the buildings are of course small, and therefore often dark inside.

    Great

    The hotel decor is truly beautiful - a little bit gothic, dark and sumptuous. Staff were very helpful and friendly and it was a relaxing atmosphere to have as a base whilst exploring Amsterdam. A short walk to bars, restaurants and into Dam Square made it very conveniently placed and I would definitely return. We ordered pizza in one night and it was delicious.

    There were some minor frustrations with the hotel room. Although sold as a large double - the bed was enormous but the floor space in the room was very limited. The bathroom was also tight for space. There was nowhere to store underwear and the room lacked a dressing table area. Instead a large tv was where a mirror should have been. A lack of flat shelf space in the bathroom meant difficult to put make up on in there too. I would like to see the hotel think about the things a woman needs when getting ready as well as the overall appearance of the room.

    Rooms quiet and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Bar and breakfast room pleasant and comfortable. The location is exceedingly good for enjoying a quieter Amsterdam-although there are plenty of interesting restaurants and night spots nearby.

    Really can't think of anything important - okay, perhaps that lighting is dim where reading or shaving. Very romantic, mind you, but difficult to find a nose hair or brush teeth.

    Location of hotel was quite good on quiet street and the hotel had character. Breakfast was very good. Beds were comfortable.

    Rooms where quiet small and so were the bathrooms.

    The best hotel of our trip to France and Amsterdam. The staff was excellent . The room was beautiful.The location perfect next to the canal around the corner from the Anne Frank House. The bed was devine!. the breakfast was wonderful. We loved this hotel. We were travelling with our daughter and the room was large enough for a third bed.

    Perfect location in the heart of Amsterdam, nice staff at reception at time of check in. Beautiful hotel nicely furnished, great tea/coffee facilities in room, great view on the canal, free baby bed

    Missing bath mat in the bathroom, had to use a hand towel. Jacuzzi in room a bit anoying after use (still very noisy). Still a bit expensive for what you get though

    Staff were very friendly and the location is good

    We found the Hotel very noisey not in terms of people but sounds from shutting of doors etc.Room standard with canal view was very cramped and had far too much furniture in the room you could hardly walk around the bed.The bathroom was extreamly small.We felt whilst it is a Boutique Hotel is was slighlty overpriced.

    Perfect

    The room was beautiful. The bed was super comfortable. The hotel is very close to shopping and within walking distance of most everything. The staff go out of their way to make sure you're happy. There was a misunderstanding on our reservation with respect to breakfast (my fault), and Mr. Toren gave us complimentary breakfast for our 3 day stay, which is unbelievable. We had just come from the Vienna Marriott Hotel and missed a breakfast, paid in advance, due to jet lag and they couldn't have cared less. Robby, the porter, was super helpful; Yasar was fantastic at making latte's; and the lady in the kitchen cooked the best breakfast ever! The reception staff couldn't be more helpful. They'll even do your boarding pass for you. We stayed at the Toren because of the reviews we read online and we weren't disappointed.

    Absolutely no complaints at all!

    The great location, close to the city centre and all the sights within walking distance, close enough to Central Station, and the very helpful friendly staff made our stay in Amsterdam memorable.
