When visiting Amsterdam you know you are visiting a city with a rich history. Just visit the National History Museum and you will witness centuries of fine art. The same counts for the wonderful 5 star luxury boutique hotel The Dylan. The site has a tremendous history. It started out as a theater where even Vivaldi once made an appearance. Sadly at the end of the eighteenth century it burnt down to the ground. Once again the site was developed into a place where people would gather. This time the catholic church constructed a place for the old and poor. After they held on to the property until 1998, new owners turned it into a hotel; The Blakes. It later became the beautiful hotel The Dylan, as it still is today. You’ll see… a whole lot of history, fabulous rooms & suites and great restaurants. Enjoy this perfect luxury hotel!
