The site of The Dylan dates back to the year 1613, when construction workers began excavating the Keizersgracht canal. Five years later a theatre was founded in the building, named the Duytsche Academie.

On the 100th anniversary of the theatre, in the year 1737, it was Antonio Vivaldi himself who conducted the theatre’s orchestra. The theatre also gave birth to the longest running theatre tradition in the world to date, the Gijsbreght van Aemstel. This Dutch version of the Trojan Horse story marks the end of medieval Amsterdam and preludes the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century.

It is traditionally played in the first week of each New Year, until the early 70s due to a lack of subsidy. In 2018 it was brought back to life in its première location by The Dylan, almost 4 centuries after the first performance.

The building caught fire in 1772 and burned down. Only the present Van Campen’s doorway (current main entrance gate) was spared and reminds us today of the location’s rich history. In 1773 the site was sold to one of the Regents of the Roman Catholic Church charities, known as the Old & Poor People’s office and was turned into a hotel in 1999.



The Dylan Amsterdam has 40, individually designed rooms and suites in four different styles and hand painted in an array of colours.

The hotel offers a variety of room and suite types, which vary from luxury single rooms to luxury suites with a garden or canal view.

All the rooms and suites are decorated in a specific style. Styles include Serendipity, Amber, Loft and Loxura.


Bar Brasserie OCCO

Bar Brasserie OCCO is a distinct cosmopolitan eatery with menus highlighting handcrafted cocktails and creative cuisine drawn from Dutch influences and local producers.

A perfect, more casual alternative to Restaurant Vinkeles. Open throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, High Wine, dinner and for cocktails with a small bite.



Awarded a Michelin star since November 2009, the delicate French cuisine of Restaurant Vinkeles offers an excellent mixture between classic and contemporary styles. Set in a sunken dining room surrounded by original 18th century wood ovens.

Executive Chef Dennis Kuipers and Chef de Cuisine Jurgen van der Zalm use only the freshest ingredients for their seasonal menu, which showcases their strict dedication to purity of flavour and presentation. Often described by our guests as “exciting, modest and refined”.
