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.

“What a find!!”

We arrived home from our month long holiday to find an email from the owners of this wonderful holiday, thanking us for staying at their hotel. Somehow we were not surprised as from the time you enter this lovely hotel, the staff are amazing, the best we've ever encountered in many years of travelling. We had a lovely spa suite looking on to a garden in the heart of downtown Amsterdam. Just 10 minutes casual walk from Dam Square and on a major canal, this hotel is perfect for a city stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. the rooms are very comfortable with even an expresso coffee machine, the breakfast is very good and it was always a delight to return to after a day of sightseeing.We will definitely only stay here when we return to Amsterdam.

“forget the rest , stay at the best”

Wow! Where do I begin, this is by far one of the best hotels my wife and I have ever stayed in. From the moment I booked The Toren and the service I received from the team replying to my endless emails about what to do and directions and arranging a few surprises for my wife (it was for her birthday), to the moment we arrived I have nothing but praise for each and everyone of the team. We had a beautiful room overlooking the canal , also had a jacuzzi , which was very nice after a long day exploring Amsterdam. Nothing was too much trouble , even to the point in the bar when I asked for a cocktail that was not on the list the bartender went online and found out how to make it, tasted perfect. The breakfast was very nice also, The location is perfect if you like a very nice area and bars and not too far from the busyness of Amsterdam. Nice and quiet area , If you want to stay at a very special hotel then look no further, choose The Toren Will we be back , you better believe it Thanks again to everyone at The Toren for making our stay perfect Mark and Wenda Robinson .

“Great private spa in a our junior suite!”

Located in a good part of the city. Excellent attitude and service by the staff. One of the best beds. I definately liked the interiour style of our jnr suite ( we're upgraded by The Toren from deluxe). Our room had a small private spa in it. We loved it! This stands out from the other luxury hotels. This was very good value for the money.
