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.

“Worth the extra cost”

With its central location on Kazersgracht the Toren delivered a large, canal view room with a large soaking tub. Breakfast was quite good. The front staff was very helpful with getting dinner reservations, a curated list of local favorites (which were quite good) and general help. There was a big convention in town and the rates everyplace were higher than optimal- but given the quality of the room, the service and the location this was a reasonable value. Easy walk (or cycle) to almost everyplace. Less than a mile from Amsterdaam Central- you hear the rollerbags clicking down the cobbles.

“All my dreams came true!!”

My husband and I recently traveled to Europe for the 1st time without the family. We were so excited that our first stop was in Amsterdam and reviewed for most romantic hotels and the Toren came up. Words can not express what a beautiful experience we had. The front staff was so friendly and did very well with explaining the highlights of the city. They provided us with a map and details of where to go. We then proceeded to the dining area to have some snacks and coffee. They offered a good variation of items and the cappuccino was delicious. Our room was absolutely beautiful. If you can, book one of the garden suites. The garden area is absolutely beautiful. We proceeded to begin enjoying the city and returned at night for drinks. WE HAD A WONDERFUL EVENING WITH ANOTHER GUEST AND THE BARTENDER!! There was not one time that we came across staff and they didn't greet us and ask how everything was going for us and if we were enjoying our stay. We witnessed this with all guest. It was wonderful to see. Overall I measure a vacation on the fact if I'd like to return and the answer is MOST DEFINITELY!!! The Toren made our stay the most romantic vacation and I can not stop raving about it to family and friends. I look forward to returning and will most definitely stay there again. Eric and Petra Toren...GREAT JOB!!!!!!

“I love the Toren”

I recently stayed at the Toren and the hospitality began well before I ever arrived in Amsterdam. I was contacted soon after I made my reservation to ensure that I realized that the room I booked (small single) was very small and offering to store any extra luggage or other items that may not fit in the room. While the room was small, as I was traveling on my own the size of the room was not an issue as there was enough storage space in the room for all of my luggage. I did not plan to spend much time in my hotel room during my visit to Amsterdam so the room offered everything I needed - a very comfortable bed, a HEAVENLY shower, minibar, coffee maker and room service is also available. I was surprised to be offered breakfast as part of my stay, which was an unexpected and classy touch!! There was an assortment of items available such as coffee and tea, fruit, yogurt, cereal, juices, meats and cheese, rolls and croissants, and they make awesome lattes. The location of the Toren is perfect for those wanting to use the tram as there is a tram stop 5 minutes away but it is also within walking distance to many of the sights in Amsterdam such as the Anne Frank House, the Jordaan, Nine Streets, fantastic restaurants and bars and I also walked to Museumplein from the Toren, which took about 20 minutes. Central Station is also a 10 minute walk away. The staff at the Toren is lovely and I really felt taken care of and welcomed by them. I would highly recommend the Toren for anyone visiting Amsterdam.

On a recent trip to four different cities my daughter and I were lucky enough to stay at the Toren. There is nothing that I could fault....the room was beautiful overlooking the canal, the staff were helpful, kind and polite, the breakfast offered everything you could want. I would recommend anybody to stay here. Thank you to all the staff and I will certainly be returning.
