Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
This canalside boutique hotel holds a rather intriguing past. Dating back to the 17th-century, the building previously played host to a theatre, however after a tragic fire it was entirely restored and repurposed as a set of charming townhouses. Today, the site is home to The Dylan; a characterful Chic Retreat decked out with a blend of honey hues, marble floors and exposed stone walls.
Service here is wonderful, with staff who deliver warm and attentive service without ever intruding. You’re in a rather romantic part of the city here too; set on the canal ring, you’re in prime position for boat-watching with a glass of wine in hand.
Please note that there are a lot of stairs at this property and no lift, so it may not be suitable for those less mobile.
With two excellent restaurants on site, you’ll be spoilt for choice when dinner time approaches. If it’s fine dining you’re after, the Michelin-starred Restaurant Vinkeles is the place for you, serving a fresh take on classic French dishes. For something a little more relaxed, head to the Bar Brasserie OCCO, where you can tuck into a handcrafted cocktail alongside some delicious food.
Sprawled across two townhouses, the 40 rooms are rather eclectic in design. Expect anything from rustic wooden wardrobes, loft-style beamed ceilings or dark-wood panelling. If you’re lucky, you may even bag yourself a room with canal views. Bathrooms are slick and modern, coming with the additional treat of luxe toiletries.
If you’re feeling active, there’s a small gym on site for guests to make use of. If you want a real taste of the city, you can even arrange for a tour or meal on the hotel’s boat.
You’re well-placed for exploring at The Dylan, with the shop-lined Nine Streets just a saunter away and Anne Frank’s House within 10-minutes’ walk. Amsterdam’s famous museums aren’t far off either, easily accessible by foot or tram.
