What is this?

We select, you rate. Scores are on a 20-point scale, and they're assigned by our members who actually stayed there. If a hotel's rating falls below 16, it's gone — so your post-stay review is actually our most important quality-control tool. Thanks for that.

While its position on the Keizersgracht places it at Amsterdam's historic heart, the Dylan Amsterdam is an eclectic beast, its rich striped fabrics and dramatically ornamented rooms referencing the Netherlands' Asian colonial history, rather than canal-house kitsch or the watered-down Zen aesthetic that passes for chic in boutique hotels the world over.

Of course there are rooms in more subdued styles, in case bold red and black stripes are not your idea of soothing décor, some in bright white and natural wood, others jade green, and still others in black and white, to match the hotel's public spaces. The visually striking rooms are comfortable, too - the linens are actually made of linen, for example, which is less common than it may sound.

Behind the building, in a secluded courtyard, are the garden, the bar, and Vinkeles, the restaurant, which is as unrelentingly bold and unique as the hotel itself. This Michelin-starred operation serves French fare under the direction of executive chef Dennis Kuipers, in a sunken dining room with views of the secluded garden, in a well-preserved 19th-century boat.

The hotel is only part of the equation, as Amsterdam is not a town for shut-ins. The Dylan keeps an armada of black bicycles parked outside for guests to rent, and it’s more than a gimmick, as Amsterdam is an extremely bicycle-friendly town. The location is central, and thus quite close to the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, and the Van Gogh museum, as well as a variety of shopping and café districts. In the winter, ice skate along the frozen canals with the locals — you can’t do that in London.
