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.

“A great place in Amsterdam”

I have stayed here several times and always look forward to returning. The location is great, the breakfast is well-worth getting up for, the staff is helpful and kindly, and the rooms make you want to leave home and move in here. I am thinking of moving in permanently!

“A Dramatic Boutique Hotel”

I absolutely loved it! The decor is very chic and fun. The rooms are a bit small but well laid out. The staff is so friendly and can help you get around Amsterdam. You are right in the center of everything! So easily can walk through the canals and enjoy the charm of Amsterdam. One block from Anne Franks house and a couple from the red-light district. Will definitely be back!

“Fantastic place to stay”

We just spent a weekend at the Toren in a "small" double room, that was bigger and better equipped than most regular rooms we've had in other hotels. Nespresso machine in the room made a pleasant change from the usual powdered coffee most hotels supply. Staff were very helpful, and the cocktails unusual, but tasty (ginger and black pepper in gin is new to me!). The hotel is within easy walk of Dam square and the train station, or the reception can get a taxi for you within minutes if required.

“Lovely”

The Toren was just great. Very affordable. Quaint, small, comfortable rooms. The service was excellent and very attentive. There is a lovely bar in the lobby. It was very conveniently located for sightseeing, one block from the nearest tram and one block from the Anne Frank House. I would definitely stay here again.

“Amazing Boutique Elegance”

We have just returned from a weekend stay at this hotel and yes the stay was absolutely amazing, but this fantastic, well thought-out, effortless hotel truly was the icing on the cake for us! Let me tell you now the staff are absolutely fantastic and cannot do enough from the minute you arrive to the second you leave. It was my wife's birthday and the owner has left us a personal letter from himself and his wife wishing her a happy birthday with a bottle of fine champagne, what a welcome!!! The jacuzzi Bath was sublime, the room and decor was full of class, the whole hotel has everything going for it, you have to see it for yourself!! Best Hotel we have stayed in in years!! We would like to send a special Thank you to the owner and his wife Petra for an Amazing stay. The Greens!
