The Dylan has the best location on any hotel in Amsterdam. It is on a quiet canal in the interesting 9 streets area. Hotel is understated but very stylish and Cate Blanchett's identical twin sister is one of the receptionists. The only thing the hotel misses is a swimming pool. We stayed a week, and the hotel was peaceful and...

You enter through an arch into a courtyard and then a maze of rooms and outside spaces. A relaxed hotel in modern minimalist style. The rooms are either large with a shower or smaller with a bath. One criticism - there was nowhere to hang anything longer than a short skirt/jacket in my room. Breakfast in the room was quite...

Just returned home from a 3 night stay at The Dylan and it was perfection.

Quiet, high up in the eaves, I stayed in Room 24, hearing the birds roosting and while I had not particularly wanted to stay in a Loft style room, I have to say that I had an excellent nights sleep. The bed, with soft linens, was extremely comfortable and produced one of my best first nights in a hotel. The...

One of the best hotels we have stayed in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make our 3 night stay perfect. The Dylan is within walking distance from major attractions, shopping and restaurants. Excellent on site restaurant with wonderful food. Perfect location. Can definitely recommend

A fantastic hotel in the centre of the city. Very posh and chic, with freindly stuff. Nicely located, no more than 20 min walk to all the major attactions and restaurants. Also surrounded by nice shopping streets. The bar and court yard are all very pleasant. The restaurant is very good, and probably deserves more than its current one M-star....
