Even if it’s just a city break, never underestimate the pleasure a comfortable room can bring at the end of a hard day’s sightseeing. Overlooking Keizersgracht canal is The Dylan, an ideally-located hotel with charming, loft-style rooms that make a show of the building’s original wooden beams. When you’re not admiring the rooms, you can take to the city on one of the hotel’s bikes for hire and after you’ve circled back, enjoy some High Wine – their merry version of High Tea.
