Found this almost by accident. Awesome boutique hotel with a massive garden (not really needed in December but very rare in this district). Courageous and fresh design and an amazing transformation of a couple of warehouses knocked together. Superb bar. All very cozy !

The location and many features of this hotel are excellent as one would expect of a hotel at its rating. The high wine was a highlight and definitely worth visiting for, if not staying. The charming bistro staff might like to consult the establishment's English language menu for help with vocab on the ingredients. However, what knocks this review into...

Having visited the bar on a recent business trip, decided to stay here with my family on a short pre-Christmas break. The location of the hotel is perfect, right on the canals in a wonderful old building, in the heart of the district with many interesting shops and restaurants.

This hotel was amazing! All the little details really do make a difference. A special gift/souvenir was left in the room for us. Every night we got a treat... cookies, macarons etc. Nicely ironed linen! We had specific instructions about our room and everything was taken into consideration! After all the good things we read about the breakfast I expected...

Just spent a weekend at the Dylan and have nothing but praise for this hotel. As the other reviews state, the location is excellent. Very central, but overlooking a quiet canal.
