“Doubleetree excellent first impression”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Just checked in less than 1 hour ago. Check in was very quick with no delays. As I've stayed in several of Amsterdams 5 star hotels I was not sure what to expect here but let me assure you if first impressions count this hotel will be a pleasure. I got a spacious room on 10th floor overlooking the City. The room also has a large balcony, yes a real balcony that you could have a party on.
The room has everything I need. Its clean, bright and airy as well as having all the usual things you expect. Thankfully the safe is large enough for a large laptop (you wouldn't believe the amount of hotels I've stayed in that cant fit a laptop in the safe). Nice touch is a tooth brush and razor already in the room..(usually have to call room service for these).
IMac TV is fine, but personally I prefer a larger screen...but for those of you who dont want to bring a laptop/ipad it also doubles up as a Mac computer...handy for browsing. Yes WiFi is also in the bedroom and so far its speed seems reasonable (I can use it for Netflix so connection speed is very good)
Bed is perfect , nice white linen but the real bonus is that because the balcony has a full glass door I can lay down in bed and still see out to skyline and rooftops of Amsterdam.
Bathroom is what you would expect for this quality standard of hotel, no bath though..I havent tried the shower yet.
Hotel location is fine, (just across from the Amrath where I've stayed serveral times and always get a great room, and also close to NH Barbizon which is another decent Hotel). Ive stayed in the Krasnapolsky several times also which is in a better city center location but there the rooms are hit and miss). But the distance from Doubleetree to Dam Square is 5 minutes or a 10 minute tourist stroll.

Room Tip: I read the other review first so I asked for a City View room, recomend you also get one with a balc...

The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the Station. The hotel is new, modern, clean and in a great location. If you want a view of the city request a City View. You get Macs in your room with TV and internet access. The Sky Lounge is a great place to have a drink and gives a wonderful view on the City, the cocktails are also very good. They have a DJ on at the weekends but you do not hear any noise from this in your room. Its a great location to stay as you hit the bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. I would recommend using this hotel and will stay again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for a City View, wonderful view of the City and very quiet.

January 2012 long weekend at the Doubletree hotel.

Great location with easy walking distance to the centraal station, canals, river boats, red light district and most sight seeing attractions.

Dissapointments - rooms do not have baths and there are no spa facilities. There is a gym which was nice to have on site.

Make sure you visit the sky bar on the 11th floor. Great views!!

We enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a nice view when checking into the hotel. Friends had a view looking into a wall.

Just returned from a weekend stay at the hotel. Here are some of my thoughts:

You can see the hotel when you turn left out of the station but there is no sign to tell you which hotel it is until you reach the front door!

Arrived about 11am and could have checked in straight away but we decided to wait for a city view room, returned at 1pm and after a 5min wait were given this room - Frank that looked after us was very helpful and great customer service skills - the warm cookie was also good.

Rooms are small, not much storage space in wardrobe to hang clothes!

Once in our room we noticed a bottle of red wine on the shelf, then a mini fridge, fully stocked. Also found shoe polish, mouthwash, spare toothbrush etc. However, there was no information on the price of anything in the mini fridge. I requested a price list from Reception and realised you had to pay for the mouthwash etc too, this also told you to fill out a form to say what you had used - didn't have this either! However, when our adapter plug broke was great being able to borrow one from reception free of charge.

Breakfast was ok, at busy times I would advise ordering your hot drinks when they seat you or you may wait a while. Also some tables are too close together!

Also better drainage needed in the showers, was worried this was going to overflow!

Skylounge - overpriced. 7.50 euro for less that half a glass of wine! The view is good though.

Overall, a great trip, great hotel, excellent location - we walked everywhere and the staff are brilliant!

We will definitely return to this hotel, hopefully to do our Christmas shopping - the shops are amazing!

Room Tip: City view room is a must!

Hotel is in the perfect location right next to the train station (5 min walk) and not far to walk into the centre of Amsterdam. However no noise from the train station whatsoever.

Rooms are basic, but clean, modern and the iMac and Wifi is a great extra.

Staff are very helpful, booking us restaurants and by the time we had come back from being out for the day they had pushed a confirmation under the door with a map on of how to get there. They couldnt help us enough.

Breakfast is great, wide selection to chose from.

Room cleaned and services every day for the 4 days we were there.

Would love to visit this hotel again.

I was part of a conference staying with all those involved at the Double Tree - excellent transport links, very helpful staff on reception - they handled the mass check in of our colleagues very well indeed. The rooms are simple, functional, however well equipped with an IMac computer and all the usual amenities.

The only mild disappointment was the service in the sky lounge - a bit slow.

More or less a perfect stay however.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the front of the hotel - fantastic views.
