“Two days at Hilton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Lovely hotel with a beutiful garden along one of Amsterdams channels. Parking just outside the hotel was a plus for us arriving by car. We tried both the resturant and bar. The breakfast could have had a little larger selection.

Dear Hans Z,

Many thanks your kind words about you last stay with the Hilton Amsterdam!

The hotel is indeed located in the upscale residential area “Oud-Zuid” of only 10 minutes walking distance of the Museum District, House of Rembrandt and Van Gogh Arts museum. Also very reachable by tram lines 16, 24, and 5 who depart right behind the hotel. Did you know that during the summer months we open our ‘River Dining’ restaurant located just 1 meter from the water? Where you can enjoy: Iberico Pata Negra, Iced crab legs and Beef fillet with Rockefeller oysters all day from 11 am until 11:30 pm.

I hope to get the chance to welcome you again in the near future

Kind regards,

Alessio Colavecchio

We went to have a city break and enjoy what we had heard was a beautiful city, we had a great time and the hotel a great place, I love Hiltons you get the same standard every where in the world! Did not go any where near the pot shops or night stuff, we saw the nice people and all the history , brought back lots of bulbs to.
Well worth the visit, I want to now go and see the rest of the country.

Room Tip: When staying at Hilton always upgrade it worth it and join there loyalty team!

Dear ADWGlasgow,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review of Hilton Amsterdam.

It is very good to hear that you appreciated our services. Did you know that in the darker times of the year Amsterdam is hosting a light festival through the whole city in which different artists show their creations made out of light bulbs? There is more information about this online and we are more than happy to provide you with more information if you are interested. Feel free to contact me personally.

Thank you for staying at the Hilton Amsterdam and we hope to get the chance to welcome you again soon.

Kind regards,

Located in one of the more affluent neighborhoods of the city, the Hilton is a good corporate or get what you expect choice for a vacation traveler. Quiet, well-run and within a short distance of the central city. Just watch the price of the breakfast buffet.

As part of a seminar organized by my company, I spent 2 days and 2 nights in this hotel with the added bonus of a canal side. The room I occupied was according to me in a tatty style but the staff is professional and the service is good. Compare with what we could find on the market, this hotel is too expensive.

Dear Boris B,

Thank you for sharing you experience regarding your last stay in Hilton Amsterdam.

I am sorry to hear that the designs of our rooms were not to your liking. However I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful view from your room located straight above the canal and overlooking the City of Amsterdam.

I hope to have the chance to meet you again in the near future,

Kind regards,

Just spent a wonderful week at the Hilton Amsterdam! Great room on 8th floor with amazing views over canal and the city. The breakfasts were excellent and the staff very friendly. The breakfast chef, Johnnie, was a star and several times came to chat to us - he even sometimes gave us plastic boxes to fill up for a picnic lunch. Olaf, one of the concierges, took us on an interesting free tour of the John and Yoko suite. My husband is disabled and mostly in a wheelchair. The staff were very helpful and most of the hotel was extremely accessible. We had an adapted disabled room with various useful aids in the wet room. A couple of suggestions to make the room even better :- the entry to wet room had a slightly awkward rim for a manual wheelchair; the narrow space between bed and desk made access to the picture window difficult/impossible for a wheelchair (luckily my husband could transfer to a desk chair); an additional movable plastic chair in wet room would have been useful but staff quickly provided a wooden one when we mentioned it. People were really very helpful, though, and went out of their way to give us a good holiday. Thank you very much for a great stay!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a canal view!

Dear LYNNEEngeland,

Thank you for your great review of Hilton Amsterdam regarding your last stay!

It is of great value to read how you have experienced your stay; I have taken all your points in account and will discuss it in the near future with the management team for further development. Olaf and Johnny where very happy to hear that you appreciated their eye for detail and ‘Can – Do’ mentality. Besides that I have also thanked the whole team for their effort day in and day out. They really make the difference and I am pleased to hear that you have experienced it that way as well.

I hope to meet you during your next stay with us,

Kind regards,

Alessio Colavecchio

I recently had the pleasure of visiting this very comfortable Hilton which I found to be in a very quiet neighborhood in Amsterdam.
Our upgraded room was ready upon our arrival, the view was wonderful I have no negatives to mention at all
The tram from Amsterdam Zud is easy to find and the ride into the city was very easy also.
I would like to thank the manager for the chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday (nice touch)
I would have no hesitations to visit this hotel in the near future.

Dear Mr Ron B.

Thank you for you kind words regarding your last stay with the Hilton Amsterdam!

It makes me happy that the upgraded room was to your satisfaction and that the view of Amsterdam pleased you as well. The tram lines 5, 16 and 24, which depart just behind the hotel, take you to the main attractions of the town including Museum district, Dam Square and much more. Did you know that our concierge provides a 24H ticket? With the OV card you can travel in all tram and metro lines, no hassle buying a 1H ticket every time, just one card for the whole day! Current price is only €8,-.

I hope to welcome you again in the near future,

Kind Regards,

Alessio Colavecchio
