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:

Museums
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.

Shopping
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.

Children
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.

“The only place I'll stay in Amsterdam!”

Everything at The Toren is great. Everything. Great rooms. Great staff. Great service. Great value. Great food. Simply great! The rooms are very charming. Free internet. Coffeemaker. Breakfast comes with coffee, bacon, eggs, baked beans, fresh fruit, bread, meat, cheese, orange juice. And I think breakfast even goes until 11:00. Wonderful for sleeping in while on holiday. After breakfast, the room becomes the bar/lounge. Cool decor. And I think I could sit there and eat ham & cheese tostis and ice cold Heinekens all day long. The staff really bends over backwards to make certain you have an enjoyable stay. Stay here!

“Couldn't ask for more, Excellent!”

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at The Toren, and couldn't have asked for more! The room had amazing and beautiful decor, the room was spotless, the bathroom wonderfully large and well stocked, and the MOST comfortable bed! The hotel is in a great location, right across from the Anne Frank House and near lots of restaurants, bars and the city center. The service we received from the staff was phenomenal. They are always polite, helpful and genuinely nice. We were a little spooked when another hotel guest accidentally tried to enter our apartment, and they were happy to immediately send a staff member to confirm our building was secure. I 100% recommend staying at this hotel, it is worth the little bit of extra money!!

“Spoilt Rotten at the Toren”

Thank you Petra and Eric Toren. We have just had the loveliest stay at your Toren Hotel and been so spolit by your superb staff. Thanks too for making the stay even more special with recognising our first anniversary with a wonderful gift from you personally. We were lucky to split our stay into two sections and take a night out to go to Rotterdam and Delft to see friends. The Reception staff allowed us to leave some luggage behind and then on last day we left our luggage again so we were free to wander for the day before a late flight home. We stayed in the canal view deluxe with the Jacuzzi bath for 3 nights which we thought was lovely but then on the last day the builders moved in and were upgraded to the garden room with jacuzzi and steam room which was absolutely stunning and the height of luxury. Both suites were Baroque stylised very tastefully as were the common parts of this grand building overlooking the Canal. The beds were so comfortable and the complimentary products extremely high quality. The breakfasts were gorgeous and we were thoroughly spoilt by your very professional team of waiters, nothing was too much trouble for them. Special thanks to Hram, Evangelico, Kevin and Motor and also Magnus who showed us our room when we first arrived. We were also so impressed with your Reception staff and those we had the most contact with were Priscilla, Henry and Kelly – all Reception staff were lovely people who noticed everything and made sure our stay was perfect. In fact we had made friends with Priscilla and Kelly prior to our visit with all our questions beforehand! We love the ethos that your staff took a personal interest in our wellbeing and strove to make our stay complete. I don’t know where they find the time as Reception is constantly busy. Everyone at the Toren is committed to make every little detail perfect. They were all sincere and they enjoyed their jobs too. Breakfasts were scrumptious. My personal favourite was the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and the pancakes. David liked to pile his plate with your full cooked breakfast. There was so much that we completely over ate. The Baroque styled bar is magnificent with a good bar menu food and cocktails and wines etc. What a great place to be. I wish I were there now with a strawberry Mojito staring at the angels on the ceiling! Not far away, I would recommend the Belhamel to eat for a special occasion, the cafes in the Jordaan. We liked the Noodoest (or something like that). A must see is the Heineken museum. For other museums buy a 50 euro museum pass and see as many museums as you like preferably by canal boat. For us as cat lovers, the Pouzen Boot was a great find. Reception were always keen to help us fill our days and even with our terrible sense of direction we managed to an eclectic array of activities. We really hope to come back again very soon, have the Jacuzzi and chilled Champagne ready in the garden suite, please!! We can well see why you are the top of the Trip Advisor league. With best regards and thanks to everyone at the Toren. David and Jane Willis.

“Comfortable hotel with a unique style”

Just returned from a short break to Amsterdam. My wife and I stayed two nights in a superior room at this hotel. Room felt a bit cluttered, largely I think because of the massive whirlpool bath that dominates the available space. Style is very boudoir. The lounge bar area doubles as the breakfast room. Breakfast is excellent - every possible option provided, or if it isn't on display, they are happy to try and provide it (boiled eggs, for example). Reception staff excellent - nothing too much trouble; recommended restaurants, ordered taxis efficiently and printed out my boarding passes for the return flights accurately. Note there is no computer/printer continuously set up at this hotel, although they do have a guest laptop they can lend you, but you'll still need to mail the information to reception to get print. Only minor gripe I have is that the staff ate their meals in the bar area during the evening. Personally, I don't think this is very professional, but I guess space is limited in this hotel, so staff dining options are probably limited. If you are looking for a small, friendly hotel close to Anne Frank museum, this should fit the bill.

“Something over the top!”

This hotel it beyond amazing!!! This was our first trip to Amsterdam, we first stayed a couple nights by the airport then switched over to The Toren to be in the heart of the center and we were SO glad we did. As many have mentioned in their reviews they picked this hotel because the reviews have NO negative marks...well it is true they are flawless! Every employee there but especially Henry, Haram and Evangelize incredibly helpful, kind, warm and attentive to your every need. I received an email from Lieselotte stating she had made a minor mistake and that she would have something nice for us when we arrived...well that something nice turned out to be chocolates & strawberries in our room, free breakfast each morning, 2 free drinks and an upgrade to one of the most beautiful rooms there. Thank you Toren Family for your professionalism in customer service. We wish you much success!
