Perfectly positioned on the gorgeous Keizersgracht canal, and originally sister to London’s ravishing, Anouska Hempel-designed Blakes, The Dylan is a designer romp and romancer that’s high on style and comfort.
40 individually-designed rooms mean no experience is exactly the same, but we adore the sophisty Serendipity collection – splash out on one of the ultra-mod, just-opened Jacob van Campen suites with high ceilings, canal views, and restored furny for ultimate elegance.
Michelin-starred Vinkeles is a goldmine of contemporary haute Dutch-French cuisine, cosy Long Gallery Lounge and Bar Barbou are under-rated cocktail destinations, the courtyard garden is a beauty and Stewart the concierge is your can-do man who will take your bags or get your knees under at the hottest tables in town. Put him to the test.
