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. Facilities include top-notch concierge service, a secluded courtyard garden for afternoon tea and evening drinks, and light-filled top-floor suites. As if that’s not enough, the fabulous Michelin-starred Restaurant Vinkeles has its home in the Dylan. For a hotel so upmarket, the ambience is surprisingly chill, but with room rates starting at around 400€ it is a very exclusive treat.
