Offering truly individual guest rooms with stripped oak floors, exposed beams, blindingly white bathrooms, and four-poster beds that you could lose a family in, Amsterdam’s glossiest boutique hotel is located in a former 17th-century theater on lively Keizersgracht and well deserves its accolades. The never-ending list of facilities includes a concierge service, dinner cruises in the hotel’s boat, a terrace for afternoon tea and evening drinks, and light-filled top-floor suites. As if that’s not enough, the fabulous Michelin-starred Restaurant Vinkeles also has its home in the Dylan. For a hotel so upmarket, the ambience is surprisingly chilled and informal, but with room rates starting at 350€ it is a very special treat.
