We stayed here in February 2013 for 4 nights on a special winter rate Hilton were offering if you booked direct (I recall this being around 40% off their usual rate.)
The location of the hotel is excellent, right next to the main train station - in fact you could see it from the platform. You do however have a little walk outside to get to the hotel. It's in a good location for the science museum and also the main library, which is nicely designed and offers good views. (This also has an affordable Italian canteen style restaurant.)
The room was very clean and modern in design. The beds were very comfy. I particularly liked the floor to ceiling window, we could see the station, river/canal from our room and the Schreien Tower. I don't know if it was the package we had booked but our minibar was complementary during our stay which was a nice touch, it was refilled everyday.
The hotel is really big and the design might not be to everyone's taste, however it suited us. We spent longer in the hotel than we had intended during our visit as in early February it was very cold in the city.
Breakfast was good. We also visited the Starbucks which is situated inside the hotel. Would highly recommend a visit to the Skybar on the top floor, expensive for drinks but with an amazing view - it also had a rooftop ice rink when we were there. We also had drinks in the lobby bar a number of times, the service here was great and other people's food looked nice.
We took a canal cruise which left from just opposite the station's main entrance, would recommend this as a way of familiarising yourself with the city/canal layout.
In summary we enjoyed our trip and would return to the hotel again, particularly if we could get the same deal.
