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.

“Impressive, classic and informative!”

Well we stayed at the Toren because of its high rank on TripAdvisor. We own a motel in Australia and wanted to see how a boutique hotel in a major national tourist destination maintained the number one spot on TripAdvisor and it was easy to see how on arrival, staff where amazing and super helpful, the room was very well appointed, spotless and the amazing bathroom and we stayed in the standard room! The whole package oozes class and sophistication with its high painted ceilings, magnificent bar and decor. We took the liberty to see if we could speak to the owners and get some advise and we where very pleased that Eric took some time out of his busy day to talk with us, with some excellent advise for novice moteliers. Make sure you stay there for an overall experience that you will always remember.

“Long weekend in Amsterdam ”

This boutique hotel is superb. Stayed for three nights over the May bank holiday. The location is next to a quiet canal in the west of the city centre but only 15 minutes walk from the station and 10 from Dam square. The staff are very friendly without being overbearing. We were given a map of the city and an explanation of the main areas of interest in Amsterdam. We had a standard double room with chocolates and strawberries on arrival ! Our room was in the annex building which is 50 yards from the main building, but all decorated in the same style. Very quiet room and good breakfasts. Very highly recommended.

“Wonderful four day stay”

Our group of three consisting of me, my wife and a good friend, Sandy, spent four days in Amsterdam preceding a Tauck river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest. We stayed at the Hotel the Toren on the Keizersgracht Canal near the Jordaan area which turned out to be an excellent location. The rooms were very nice - clean, comfortable and well appointed. The staff was terrific - very friendly, accommodating and well informed. The bar is very good and also serves as the breakfast area where a very good breakfast is available. Lunches are also very good. We highly recommend this hotel.

“What a great place!!!”

We stayed at the Toren because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were NOT disappointed!! This is a WONDERFUL boutique hotel in an absolutely PERFECT location!! But the BEST part of our stay ASIDE FROM A LOVELY ROOM (with a brand new Jacuzzi tub and beautiful bathroom) was the FRIENDLIEST AND MOST HELPFUL STAFF we have EVER encountered!! (And we travel all over the world)! They all go out of their way to make you feel as though you are their most important guest! When I go back to Amsterdam, I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else and neither should YOU!!
