4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Great service and rooms from the Hilton staff outside of expensive parking and problems navigating in to the town area, if you plan to use bicycles be carefull as the local ride without respect for tourists, it is best to use the trams or taxi once you get the map figured. The wax museum is a must for sure and good value, and of course chine town is a great experience.

Stayed for 4 nights. The Staff was very unfriendly. Charge for internet was 25.00 per night which I found excessive. You could use Wifi in lobby for free but one evening unbeknownst to the hotel guests they hosted a private party in the Lobby and there was no where for the hotel guests to sit or relax or use Wifi. No accomodations were made. The room was fine and adequate size by European standards. I am a New Yorker used to fine hotels, 5 star doesnt mean "attitude" which is what I found here. No one was friendly. When I asked for local directions at the desk I was instructed to ask the Concierge. Really? We dined in their restaurant "Robertos", our main course was not what we ordered. Also, the location was a bit out of the way, albiet quiet. I visit Amsterdam often & would definitely look for an alternative next time.

Last stayed at the Hilton ca 15 years ago. Didn't like it then because it's far from everything. Returned recently for a conference, and no improvement, in fact got worse. Room still had a mid-90s, soulless business hotel feel. Ordered room service and asked for chips instead of fries - room services subquently charged me extra for the chips and didn't deliver fries. Chips had a lovely long hair in it. (To be fair, the friendly staff at reception removed the room service charge the next day).

What really got me was the € 6 snickers from the minibar. Sure, its a 5* hotel and all, but I hate feeling ripped off - and that is precisely the memory I take away from this hotel.

On combination work/play stays in Amsterdam, and after trying other properties, we always seem happier at the Amsterdam Hilton. The quiet neighborhood makes for peaceful walks, learning experiences from the neighborhood art or information displays on the green in front of the hotel, and ease in using public transportation. A simple walk to the tram and less than 3 Euros will get you to Centraal Station, which is the end of the line, after stops near the museums and Dam Square. A day pass allows you to go any where just getting on and off the trams at conveniently located stops. Taxis to and from the airport are reasonable and always seem to be readily available.
The staff is professional and genuinely seem to welcome returning guests with a quality that is believable. Executive Lounge is still what it should be--a quiet respite for the business person where one can start or finish the day in peace. Other properties seem to cater to tourist groups who turn the lounge into a loud, party bar where they make meals out of the appetizer or tea offerings and avail themselves profusely on the "free" alcohol.
The Hilton's Executive Lounge staff are professional concierges and hopefully, tourists who demand "servants" will continue to stay closer to the city center.

Room Tip: Canal views are nice but not necessary for an enjoyable stay. Junior suites are quite a bit larger t...

I stayed 2 nights here in this beautiful city. So much things to see and do. The hotel is a bit outside the citycenter, but the tram is just around the corner from the hotel, and is very easy to jump on/off wherever you wanna go.
The rooms are clean and fresh, with a nice bathroom and well equipped. The hotel doesn´t give you a very modern feeling, but it´s ok and the staff is nice and friendly. The breakfast-buffé is ok, but in the morning the service in the restaurants can be a bit slow with many customers at the same time. It´s not a lowbudget hotel, and the prices in the bar/restaurants are high.
The hotel is located by the canal, and can offer you nice boatrides to the citycenter, i really recommend a boattrip!

The Van Gough room was nicely painted and truly unique. The staff was top notch and the location is perfect - a quiet neighborhood but close to everything.

TIP: bring a flashlight and open the curtains, the room is dark!
