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.

“Perfect, perfect perfect- what more to say?”

This is the best hotel we've ever visited. Ever. The service was exemplary- they went far beyond the usual. Breakfast in the sitting room was delicious. And the rooms! We had a garden suite and a small bedroom. All were generously appointed and very luxurious indeed. We had a simply magical stay.. and will certainly return. We would go back in a heartbeat! By all means, if you can possibly stay here- DO! I made a comment (not a criticism) about the recycling program- and the management was immediately notified, in front of me. The level of engagement was incredible. And then we got an email the next day.. amazing. They take customer service very, very seriously! The hotel is located on the canal, around the corner from the Anne Frank House. We had convenient travel to many sites and a fabulous Dutch/Indonesian restaurant. Superb. We spent hours wandering the beautiful streets and canals. We cannot recommend The Toren highly enough. Our stay was an absolute delight.

“Exceptional Hotel”

I would not be exaggerating if I claim that this hotel offered the best service I have ever experienced in a hotel and I've been to tons of hotel all over the globe. This Hotel well deserves the #1 stop on Trip advisor. From the minute you walk in, you will immediately notice the top level of service that every employee bestows upon you. The rooms are immaculately clean and comfortable offering full amenities. The location is superb. I honestly can't point out a single shortcoming. I highly recommend it if you can afford it's premium pricing

“Wonderful Boutique Hotel”

We heard about this hotel from Trp Advisor. It was all they said it would be. The junior suite was beautiful. Breakfast for the first day was free. Loved the lounge. Very conveniently located in the canal district. We plan on visiting Amsterdam again, and when we do, we will stay at the Toren again.

“Wonderful service , personal touches , unrivalled experience”

Quite frankly, I have never experienced anything on par with The Toren in any of the many hotels we have stayed in across the world. The beautiful building, the quietly, efficient and personal service throughout our stay, the extra little touches , the unrivaled attention to detail in every aspect of our stay including the most unexpected anniversary gift. Thank you ! We would recommend this wonderful place unreservedly to anyone wanting a beautiful boutique hotel stay in Amsterdam.
