“Definitely my Amsterdam hotel from now on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

On my 4th visit to Amsterdam, I chose the Doubletree for the first time. I was presented with a warm cookie and recognised as a Gold HHonors member on check in, and upgraded to an executive room on a high floor with a balcony overlooking the city - probably the one of the best views in Amsterdam. The view from the SkyLounge is also fantastic. The balcony was of use to me as a smoker (too many hotels are now 100% non smoking, I appreciate the ones that allow it in certain rooms/balconies!). The hotel is situated right next to Centraal Station and so is in a great location.
The management were very friendly, visiting me on the first night to make sure everything was up to standard.

My room was large and clean, with a comfy queen bed and floor to ceiling windows. The iMac is a great touch as it allows you to surf the net and watch TV as well as listen to music with the speakers provided. The bathroom was also very clean, with both a shower and a bathtub. Although the minibar was empty which I found strange - you're instead advised to call room service for drinks packages.

I had use of the executive lounge which is open 24/7 (canapés and wine served 7-9pm), which is nothing special but a good facility to have. You're able to sit down with a coffee and relax, or print documents etc.

Breakfast was included with my room and consisted of an expansive buffet selection of American, Asian, British and Continental style items, all of which was delicious. I also made use of room service twice and on both occasions was served a delicious meal promptly. I called the concierge on one night to recommend a Chinese restaurant and he booked me a table at Geisha - highly recommended.

I will certainly be staying here again on my next visit, and hopefully will be allocated the same room! I'd also recommend downloading the Uber app to get around the city - €10 off your first trip using promo code: '3d733'

I'm not happy with this hotel. Just stayed for 4 nights. The heating was very poor (in fact it was warmer with it off) in my suite which, in December, was unacceptable. The food is good but I won't stay there again.

There was also a mixup with my bill which I assess as 50% my fault. Ended up costing a lot, poor value for money for Amsterdam.

Fantastic Location, Great Room (executive floor) with gorgeous view. Near everything you could wish for in Amsterdam.. all transport right outside your door. Restaurants lovely in the hotel, facilities wonderful. Super staff who could not do enough.. all recommendations for outside restaurants great.. Executive lounge well equipped.. with a Mac TV in the room and in the lounge (together with printers etc) no withdrawal symptoms experienced due to leaving laptop behind! Breakfast amazingly good (Dutch style with fresh cheeses and charcuterie) Coffee available 24/7 nice drinks and snacks for the footsore in the evenings. All the princess requests for extra towels feather pillows etc etc accommodated without fuss and in minutes
So happy we picked this hotel

Room Tip: Executive floor rooms are quiet and have a great view.. worth the upgrade

Our 3 day stay at the Doubletree Amsterdam Central Station was among the highlights of our trip. From the warm reception of the staff of the front desk to the central location everything was positive. We booked the hotel on our own to end a Rhine River Christmas Market Cruise, the hotel was a five minute walk from the cruise terminal and centrally located for either walking, taking a tram, or the train station. The rooms are large and well furnished, book an executive level room , access to the breakfast and evening snacks in the executive lounge are well worth the cost in time and having a place to catch up during the day. The guest services staff is among the best I have ever encountered willing and able to assist with accurate infromation, directions and booking for musems, or any other attractions, all in all one of the best I have encountered!!

Had a great stay at Doubletree by Hilton Amsterdam, Staff were very nice, room service was fast and food was great and the room service staff are really nice people too, I recommend the breakfast. Room was fantastic, had a huge balcony with views looking over the city. House keeping was great and the room was always kept spotless. Executive lounge was excellent and enjoyed the complementary breakfast. The bed was really comfy and the pillows where very soft but still kept their shape and after a long day of sightseeing it was a relief to come back to a comfy bed. The hotel is in a perfect spot for everything and very close to central station and tram stops, guest services have the tram passes and all the info needed to get where you need to go. The in room computer and wi fi was great too, was able to stay in touch with family back home without having to make expensive phone calls. not sure why its classified as 4 star hotel when it should be 5 stars.

2 night stay at this hotel in an Executive Balcony room. Excellent staff and facilities. However the real winner is the location. If your getting the train in from Schipol, this hotel is a 2min walk!!

Great Location about 100m from Centraal station. New building overlooking water. Reception friendly and efficient. Staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Room not ready at 1pm but we left our bags and were told some places we could get lunch.
Room was great (710) with separate sitting room.
View from 11th floor bar very nice and a popular meeting place with live music at times.
Executive lounge good for a drink before dinner. Breakfast in city cafe plentiful and good.
Best thing about this hotel is the staff who are friendly, speak perfect English and go out of their way to help you

Room Tip: ask for a canal/city view not a railway view
