About The Dylan Amsterdam
Located in the heart of the “nine-streets” shopping area on the prestigious “Keizersgracht” canal, The Dylan is perfectly located in Amsterdam for exploring the city’s abundant cultural and historic sites, as well as its vibrant gastronomic scene. The entrance to the hotel is discreet, through a stone arch, across a pretty courtyard with potted flowers and plants. The decor inside is contemporary and chic – expect features such as wood-paneling and floors, leather furniture, velvet soft furnishings and wood beams throughout. There are only 40 bedrooms, each one with its own unique style, split into four main interior categories. There’s the “Loxura” set, modelled on the copper colored Loxura butterfly, the “Loft” bedrooms featuring the building’s original wooden beams, the “Amber” rooms (inspired by the precious stone) and, finally, the “Serendipity” rooms, decorated in warm shades of brown and grey with lashings of luxurious fabric. The hotel’s design truly encapsulates the hotel’s style and spirit, marrying old-world charm with contemporary.
The food offering at The Dylan is exceptional too – Bar Brasserie OCCO delivers locally inspired, seasonal dishes in a chic and casual setting, whilst Michelin-starred Vinkeles, set in a former 18th Century bakery, caters to discerning gourmands with a delectable fusion of traditional and modern French cuisine. In the warmer months, guests can luxuriate in the hotel’s beautiful ‘Secluded Garden’ terrace – enjoying meals or drinks from Brasserie OCCO throughout the day. Wine enthusiasts will also delight in The Dylan’s High Wine experience – a playful spin on traditional High Tea, where diners can taste 4x delicious wines accompanied by 4x amuse-style bites.
Further, The Dylan is steeped in rich history. In 1632 the architect Jacob van Campen was commissioned to build a stone theatre, it was the first building on the Keizersgracht canal and named the Duytsche Academie. Many well-known guests (royalty and stars) visited the theatre in those years. Antonio Vivaldi himself conducted the orchestra at the 100th anniversary of the theatre. The building caught fire in 1772 and completely burned down. Only the present ’Van Campen’s’ doorway (main entrance gate) was spared and reminds us today of the property’s unique history.
