Best City Boutique Hotel

If you want to relax for a weekend and also enjoy Amsterdam to the full, then a stay in the luxury The Toren - Hampshire Classic is highly-recommended. The hotel was proclaimed “Best City Boutique Hotel” during the 2012 Boutique Hotel Awards; a prize given for the unprecedented service that guests receive 24 hours a day: from a glass of champagne in the room to recommendations for good restaurants and places of interest in the area.

The Toren – Hampshire Classic is in an exceptionally good location. In a 17th Century canal building on Keizersgracht with Anne Frank Huis, Westerkerk, Jordaan and De 9 Straatjes around the corner. The Dam is also not far from the hotel. There are a number of interesting places of interest here: Nationaal Monument, De Nieuwe Kerk with its much-discussed exhibitions, and Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam.

On Keizersgracht with Jordaan around the corner

There is more than enough to see and do to fill an entire weekend in the immediate vicinity of The Toren - Hampshire Classic. The hotel is located on Keizersgracht, a stone’s throw from the convivial Jordaan, Wersterkerk and Westertoren, which features in many tear-jerking folksongs. Tips for great and interesting excursions in the area:

Anne Frank Huis is literally around the corner from the hotel. If you have never been in the Achterhuis, the place where Anne Frank wrote her diary during the Second World War, then this is the ultimate opportunity. Tassenmuseum Hendrikje on Herengracht is the largest bag museum in the world and has an impressive collection of more than four thousand bags, purses, cases and pouches.

Places of interest
Westerkerk with the world-famous Westertoren is very close to the hotel. You can go in all directions on the Dam for fascinating places of interest. There’s the Nationaal Monument where the Queen lays a wreath every four years on 4 May during the Nationale Dodenherdenking. Here too is De Nieuwe Kerk with its interesting exhibitions and Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam, the official reception palace of the Koninklijk Huis. You’ll find Felix Meritis on Keizersgracht. Apart from being a beautiful, historic building, you can join various lectures, debates, demonstrations and workshops here.

De 9 Straatjes really shouldn’t be missed. In these nine small streets there are unique, beautiful shops and you can also enjoy delicious lunch and dinner here. Other great places for shopping in the area are Magna Plaza shopping centre and De Bijenkorf on the Dam.

Towards Central Station on Oosterdok, you’ll find Science Center Nemo. This interactive museum is great for children who like science and who dare to conduct exciting experiments. In Madame Tussauds on the Dam, you can view celebrities from close quarters and even pose for a photograph with some of the stars.

Room service from a fantastic French Head Chef

Room service from a fantastic French Head Chef

The Toren – Hampshire Classic doesn’t have its own restaurant but does have extremely close connections with Christophe’ restaurant. The Head Chef of this renowned restaurant on Leliegracht, around the corner from the hotel, is Jean-Joël Bonsens. This Frenchman used to work in the kitchen of the French top restaurant, Les Templiers in Loiret, and worked for the world-famous Head Chef, Paul Bocuse in Lyon.
What’s special about this cooperation is that you don’t even need to leave the hotel to enjoy Jean-Joël’s cooking. You can place your order via the room service menu and have this served in your room. Should you prefer to dine in the stylish lounge, then that’s possible too. Or you can also book a table in Christophe’ Restaurant itself.

“Simply one of the best city hotels anywhere”

The Toren is located in a wonderful part of the city. We arrived after a cruise early in the morning. They took care of our luggage until the room was ready and helped us with museum admissions. The interior decor of the public spaces and the room is spectacular. My wife took pictures so that she can repeat some of the things she saw at our home. The bar/restaurant is a beauty to behold. Kevin, one of the bartenders, was great and got me to order a drink i don't ordinarily get. Glad he did. Delicious. The staff and the hotel are simply one of the best. If you are going to Amsterdam, stay here.

“Best Hotel is Amsterdam”

Loved this hotel! I visit Amsterdam regularly and this hotel is by far the best ive been too. The location is great, not too close to all the activity but far enough away from dam square etc. We stayed in the best room decoration was amazing. Our room was located in the annex building a little further down from the reception. Our room was on two levels, huge four poster bed and big chandelier hanging from the ceiling , and an outside terrace area. Below was a beautiful bathroom with a light up jacuzzi which was lots of fun. The staff are also very friendly and attentive. Room service was excellent great food and cocktail menu. 100% worth the money.

“Loved it!”

We had the Garden Cottage, which was nice as it gave us a little extra privacy. The staff was amazing. We are Vegetarians and they went out of their way to research and find places we could eat at. And their recommendations were perfect. The Hotel location is excellent, walking distance to everything, yet in a nice quiet location.

“The Best Hotel I've Stayed In”

This is the best hotel I've stayed in which is quite a compliment as I have visited 105 countries in nearly 50 years of travelling. The decoration and furnishings in a historic building on the Keizersgracht Canal are immaculate and the staff the friendliest and most helpful I have found anywhere on my travels. The location is also good with a tram stop on a line to the Dam and Central Station nearby. The bar is fantastic and their speciality gin and tonics are the best I've tasted - try the one with orange and basil or the rosemary and thyme version, but not before you set off on a bicycle! I was given a free drink voucher on checking in and complimentary chocolates and strawberries were provided in the room. The Anne Frank House is just round the corner and the Jordaan area with bars and restaurants nearby.

We have just enjoyed a fantastic two - night stay at The Toren. The hotel beautifully and tastefully combines the old and new. The location is perfect on a quiet canal near the amazing Anne Frank Huis. The rooms are spotless and well appointed. The staff were all terrific. Friendly, welcoming and all very well trained. The large buffet breakfast was delicious! Can't say enough good things. Thank you from the Minnesotans!
