“Great location, excellent quality rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon, having visited Amsterdam many times we wanted to stay in a nicer hotel and we found the doubletree on trip advisor.

The hotel is very close to the station, and has some great facilities within the hotel, including a starbucks and sky lounge. The room was compact but clean, we had a balcony room overlooking the city, noise was minimal.

Service was very good, room service was prompt, staff were helpful and every staff member would great you and say hello.

We had a small problem with the table in our room which was rectified before we had even got back to the room!

The food in the restaurant was very nice, price wise it was a little on the dearer side as you would expect but not ridiculous. the service in the restaurant was very good apart from one evening where it slipped a little (slow to clear the table and take our desert order, and took a long time for the bill) but to be honest i think that this was only highlighted as the service had been so amazing the previous nights.

Breakfast was brilliant, i cant think of anything else that someone would want for breakfast that was not available, they even had a nice local selection such as pancakes and chicken soup!

There were a number of functions on while we were there, none of which seemed to impact our stay too much at all.

Overall we had a great stay and would definitely stay again (budget permitting!) i would say that a room overlooking the city is a good idea due to the location next to the railway, and expect to pay a little more for some things, but we felt we had good value with the added extras such as posh shampoos, and complimentary minibar.

The only disappointment we had was that i wanted to buy my wife some cookies to take home with us, and they didn't have any ready as it was only 9.00 in the morning, still you cant have everything!

Room Tip: Get a room with a city view, the balcony rooms have a decent size table and chairs on them which is...

We loved the location of this Doubletree - walking distance from the train station, across the canal from old town. The restaurant breakfast buffet was a huge selection of hot/cold/cereal/fruit/cheeses/meats that was a wonderful start to the day. Our room faced the city (sigh) and was a queen room. It was both perfectly compact and roomy. The iMac as computer and tv was ingenious, and the wifi unfailing. Loved this hotel and would use it again as home base for Amsterdam.

Great location, clean modern rooms, Apple PC and audio interface in room, great modern shower room. Rooms are slightly small, but VERY well designed and smartly appointed. The same goes for the bathroom - in my case shower room (don't know if bath is available). Has just what you do need, and nothing you don't, in a modern and very well kept package. Really comfortable bed, great nights sleep, all quiet, blackout curtains. Complimentary bottled water in room, and a warm cookie on arrival were nice touches. Pleasant and efficient checkout, even though a coachload of Aussies were just checking in at the same time! 11th floor bar overlooking the city is really worth trying before you head out.

Room Tip: Another traveller with us mentioned they could hear trains. Think I was at the back in a higher roo...

My mom and I stayed at the Double Tree Hilton from September 14-17th; we selected a room with two twin beds and paid for an upgrade to include a harbour view, breakfast and free mini bar.

Pro’s
-The front desk staff were great, we arrived at 9am after flying through the night and were able to check into our room immediately. This was beyond my expectations and set the tone for a great trip.
-The location is prefect, you can take the train from the airport to the hotel and all the major tourist attractions are within walking distance.
-The Mac computers in the room are a nice touch and we found it very useful for looking up restaurants and attractions.
-The breakfast had a huge selection of hot and cold items including eggs, cereals (hot and cold), muffins, fruit and yogurt.

Con’s
-In our three day stay the mini fridge was never replenished, also the selection in the mini fridge was not very good there were only 2 bottles of water (one still and one sparkling), 2 beers, 2 colas and small serving of chips and nuts.
-The room was a pretty good size by European standards; however we had requested a room with two twin beds which we received but the beds were so close together there was basically just one bed.

Dear YYCVacation,

Thank you very much for your kind comments about our front desk staff, breakfast, location and imac facilties. I highly appreciate it and feel it's motivating for all of us.

I am very disappointed to read we did not refill your minibar throughout your stay. A thourough investigation has learned us your room unfortunately was on a do-not-disturb list for which I sincerely apologize.

I do hope your recent experience will not withold you from visiting us again in the future. At that time please do not hesitate to contact me directly!

Spent a weekend at the DoubleTree. Good service at the front desk as well as a great service for breakfast.
Located near the old town, just 5 to 10 minutes walking distance.
Was happy it had air condition, it was one of the hottest weekends we had in Europe.

We were a group visiting Amsterdam. Reservations were made 6 months in advance. Its unbelievable but they managed to get it wrong at check in. Luckily it sorted itself out but I cannot understand how this hotel is run if they don't have their heads above water and bookings correct!
The warm cookie at check in is a nice touch and we enjoyed that!
Breakfast we found very good. Lots to choose from.
Rooms are small but thats not unusual for this city. Location is great!
