I stayed in The Dylan in May. Excellent in every aspect, more than a hotel is just a treasure in the heart of the city. We have dinner in Occo: Professional service and both, food and champagne, were extremely satisfactory. I highly recommend it.

Member of Small Luxury Hotel, you can't go wrong with Dylan. No one room shares similar design, which mine was unfortunately smallish. However, the bar, courtyard and the Michelin-stared restaurant are the highlights of this amazing place for me. Would be returning to stay again on my next visit to Amsterdam.

We have really enjoyed our stay at The Dylan. The staff is amazing and will help with any need. The room, a suite overlooking the canal, is wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel for travelers with small children. The hotel gave our daughter a small toy bear on check in and set up a nice bed for her in...

This is a small luxury hotel on one of the main canals. The staff is very nice and accommodating. Although we didn't get the early check-in we had requested (and check-in isn't until 4 pm), we did get upgraded to a pretty spectacular room under the gabled roof. It's not for everyone, though, because you had to walk up 10...

We stayed in room 46, a serendipity styled room and it was everything we wanted. The room was clean and styled and was a perfect place to relax. It was really quiet too. It was the perfect 5 star boutique experience even though it is only 4 star? I think the room is comparable to that of a Shangri la...

Stayed with a colleague in two rooms for one night while on business in the city. Very relaxed ambience and lots of character in the downstairs restaurant / bar areas. There was an outside patio but this was booked for a private function so looked nice but didn't try. Also didn't try the restaurant at the rear but looked interesting...

We took two nights at the Dylan to be close to the 9 streets area and within walking distance of the galleries and so the Dylan is as good as it gets. The arched entry courtyard is a nice refuge from the mad cyclists of Amsterdam who rule the pavements and roads and you are some distance from the mass...

We stayed at The Dylan in June 2014 (me, my wife, and our 9 year old son). I was debating until the last minute between this hotel and the Andaz down the street. When I checked the rooms I had booked based on size, the Junior Suite at the Dylan was bigger by about 200 sq ft and looked very...
