The Dylan, Amsterdam

In a city as chic as Amsterdam, there’s only one place to stay. The Dylan. Easily the city’s hippest hotel, it boasts a prestigious canalside address, 40 individually bespoke rooms & suites – and not to mention a Michelin-starred restaurant. A tranquil enclave in the city, The Dylan is dotted with cosy lounges, set around a peaceful garden, making it the ideal place to relax after a day exploring Amsterdam’s culture-filled streets.


On the banks of Keizersgracht and in the heart of the stylish ‘9 straatjes’, addresses don’t come much more illustrious than this. Waking up to those iconic Amsterdam canal views, you’ll know you’re in the right place. Step out of the Dylan and all the city’s most famous landmarks are all just a stroll away. Meanwhile, it’s just a 30-minute transfer from Schipol International Airport.

Your Room

A boutique hotel with just 40 rooms, The Dylan is a definite case of quality over quantity. Each of the luxurious rooms and suites is decorated in a distinct style. Choose from Serendipity, Loxura, Klassbol, Loft and Kimono and discover a different side to Amsterdam with each decor. Whether it’s the mystique of the Orient in Kimono or the elegance of copper-hued Loxura, you’re guaranteed a beautiful base to retreat to at the end of each day. We especially loved the Loft-style Suites. Up in the rafters and overlooking the canal, nowhere offers a more authentic experience.

Why We Like It

The Dylan already offers every imaginable comfort. Yet taking comfort that one step further, they also offer a Michelin-starred restaurant, Vinkeles, alongside trendy bar brasserie OCCO. Vinkeles is a taste of Old Amsterdam, set in a sunken dining room that previously played host to an 18th-century bakery, and serving French cuisine with a contemporary twist. Overlooking the twinkling lights of the hotel’s beautiful gardens, it’s the perfect setting for a romantic evening.
