Today, The Dylan retained its novelty and its magic of the innovative. It is located in the big 17th century townhouse located at the Keizersgracht, one of the canals forming the canal ring. You enter the hotel through the high stone gate and a courtyard – an unusual access in a cramped Amsterdam old city centre. Inside, a mixture of the oriental Dutch Far East Company style, with purity of the London minimalism, creates a sophisticated and unusual atmosphere. The Dylan has 41 rooms on four floors. They all have names and each of them is differently decorated. Most of the rooms overlook the canal and the hotel’s garden terrace; top floor rooms give the view to the roofs of the old city. Everything is what it seems to be – simple wooden floors, beautiful but essentially simple striped fabrics, lacquered colonial furniture, good linen, simple towels, modern and well equipped bathrooms. You should not expect the opulent luxury of the traditional five star hotel – what The Dylan proposes is simple, but name of the game is comfort and the magic of its pure and novel esthetics.

The Dylan Hotel Amsterdam roomBehind the hotel, there is a large garden terrace. Good restaurant inspired by the Dutch colonial kitchen serves its gourmet courses inside and in summer also on the terrace. Long Gallery lounge serving light meals and a cozy bar (named Barbou) are open until 1 a.m. The Dylan has also three meeting rooms, which may serve for banquets. Additional facilities include free fitness center, valet parking (sorry, surcharge for the parking), bicycle rental (The Dylan has its own black bicycles), WiFi, free use of PC, faxing, scanning and printing facilities. Not free, nevertheless there is a limo service always at your request.

Staying at Dylan is an experience on its own; it is like traveling inside the travel you are already making.
