The hotel site has a rich history dating back to 1612, when work started on Amsterdam’s fifth ring-canal extension. To this day the Keizersgracht (or Emperor’s Canal) remains one of the city’s grandest, where the site of The Dylan was originally home to a theatre and almshouse bakery. The hotel bar was named after Jean Baptiste Barbou, who in 1772 laid the foundation stone of the building that stands here now. Today it proudly welcomes guests as the chicest boutique hotel in town.
