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.

“Lovely Hotel with Great Staff!”

I booked this hotel after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor but was still pleasantly surprised by just HOW good it was. The location cannot be beaten - in a wonderful district and right at the side of the canal. We had two rooms, a superior double and a junior suite, both of which were superb. Luxurious fabrics, red, gold and black, and nothing worn or tired. The Superior Double had a whirlpool bath in the bedroom and the Junior Suite even had a garden! The bar was really opulent and comfortable and this is where breakfast was served. There was a really good choice to cater for all tastes and the staff constantly topped everything up. All the staff were friendly and courteous and the reception staff in particular were extremely helpful, giving directions and booking restaurants. We stayed for three nights and on each night had dinner in restaurants recommended by the hotel. They went to a lot of trouble to establish what kind of restaurant we would like and all three meals were fantastic! I assumed this meant the standard must be very high in Amsterdam generally but have been assured by friends since my return that Amsterdam does have bad restaurants too! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and its staff to anyone.

“Get Amsterdam off to the right start!”

The staff at this hotel are spectacular and go out of their way to make guests feel comfortable. I arrived very early in the morning after having stayed at an awful place in Amsterdam and the hotel management at The Toren not only made sure that I got my room right away eventhough check in wasn't until 2/3pm - but they also provided me with complimentary breakfast to help start off the morning right! The hotel is also located close to some amazing local pubs!

“Wonderful boutique hotel!”

My husband and I stayed at The Toren last month and had a wonderful experience! The rooms were spacious--especially by European standards--with a lovely bathroom and a view of the courtyard. The reception desk/concierge were amazing. They helped with restaurant suggestions, and other activities to make our time in Amsterdam delightful. They really were spectacular on the day we were leaving and supposed to take a train to Paris. We found out that the trains were on strike. Mieka at the front desk called several airlines and was able to get us on a flight and arrange for transportation for us quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend The Toren.

“Fantastic location, great staff, will definitely return!”

Our stay here was a last minute substitution and it was a great one! The location (next to Jordaan neighborhood) is absolutely perfect. The canal view was amazing. The area was quiet at night and lively and interesting during the day. It is within walking distance to so many different things; museums, good food and drink. Really just a lovely place with lovely staff and great room amenities.

“The Staff says it all”

From the start the staff made us feel extremely welcome. The hotel is small and funky in its decor . They have two old mansions about 100 feet apart. We stayed in the annex which was lovely. Interiors are a little masculine but well done. Everything had been modernized in terms of lighting, bathrooms, etc. Lovely garden area out back of the main building. The bartender, Sebastin, makes a mean gin & tonic. This is near the Anne Frank House in the Jordaan area of Amsterdan, a quiet neighborhood near enough to everything. Stay here and you won't be disappointed.
