Near all canals, Hotel Pulitzer and Anna Frank House. Courtyard during good weather and indoor fire place as needed Better and better each year Boutique hotel if you want to stay or take an apartment and let them cook for you Staff well trained and highly professional Bar and wine less better than average

This hotel was amazing! All the little details really do make a difference. A special gift/souvenir was left in the room for us. Every night we got a treat... cookies, macarons etc. Nicely ironed linen! We had specific instructions about our room and everything was taken into consideration! After all the good things we read about the breakfast I expected... More

Just spent a weekend at the Dylan and have nothing but praise for this hotel. As the other reviews state, the location is excellent. Very central, but overlooking a quiet canal. Shops, cafe's and restaurants are within easy walking distance. The hotel is cosy, yet sophisticated. A boutique hotel lover's dream. We were fortunate enough to get a room upgrade... More

The beautiful canal-side location of the Dylan strikes you as you arrive outside the gated courtyard. The hotel is stunningly decorated and our junior suite (room 36) with canal view was absolutely gorgeous. Breakfast was great and the bar has a great choice of gins, including Sacred Cardamon which was a real find. The location is great and we really... More

During our memorable stay, the surroundings exuded a satisfying ambiance that has a soothing effect upon the senses. Whenever I attempted to verbalize this sensation, one word would come to mind, exquisite. A careful attention to detail is unmistakably present in every aspect of the operation.
