“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

I was in Amsterdam for a convention. I stayed at the Amsterdam Hilton. The hotel was very nice. The staff was very nice. It was a nice walk through the neighborhood to the convention center. I also walked back through a large park to the museum district and across all the canals. It was a great experience.

Very nice hotel with excellent staff and a very helpful concierge. Buffet breakfast was very good. Lovely quite area with great restaurants, a very delicious chocolate store and a supermarket that everything we needed. We also enjoyed eating at an organic cafe, 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Jumping on a tram was easy to take you into the museums and sites of the city.

We started our tour of Holland by staying at this very nice hotel. My room looked out on a park and we were in a suburban setting. We could walk to restaurants and a small supermarket to buy food.
This hotel definitely gets my highest marks for being a fine place to stay. It looked out over a canal and a train station was about a block away that could take you right to the downtown. Breakfast was a good buffet.

Great hotel and wonderful staff. We had a canal view that was delightful. Located in a quiet neighborhood but with easy access to transportation and museums. Dining experience was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Dear ConstantTraveller,

Thank you for your kind words in your review about Hilton Amsterdam!

The view over the canal is stunning not only from your room but also from the Garden Terrace, where you can have canapés or drinks in the afternoon sun. Your positive recommendation as result of your experience is very much appreciated and has been shared with the entire culinary team.

I hope you will visit us again soon.

Without any research I selected this hotel because of my experiences with Hilton in the past. It was a delightful surprise to take in the wonderful park just a few blocks away and also the museum district and canal tours. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in town.

This was our first visit to the Hilton, and our overall impression was that all the employees, no matter whether they were the Hotel Manager or Housekeeping staff, Restaurant team or Concierge, couldn’t do enough to ensure that our time in the hotel met the exacting standards for which this particular chain is so proud.

We realise that every company, whether a hotel or other commercial organisation, will make mistakes from time to time, but what is vitally important is how those mistakes are recognised and then rectified. It was reassuring to see that despite the corporate branding, that when we brought some issues to the attention of Alessio Colavecchio (Hotel Manager) and Sara Facheris (Front Desk Manager), that they did not lose sight of the fact that the personal touch is still crucial to the operation and that a very satisfactory resolution was found.

The icing on the cake was when they discovered that it was our Wedding Anniversary, and then went the extra mile which was a total and very pleasant surprise to us.

Although the hotel is located about a 20 minute tram ride away (route 16 on the Emmastraat stop) from the station, it felt more relaxing to be away from the relative bustle of the city centre (although we feel that Amsterdam could never be described as bustling when compared with Paris or London!).

I never actually stayed here but wanted to visit as it's were John and Yoko had their famous bed-in back in 1969, as the Vietnam War raged. It's an amazing hotel - at the rear there is an outside bar that overlooks beautiful manicured grounds that run down to the edge of a canal. It's a sublime location for an afternoon aperitif and far far from the madding crowds of downtown Amsterdam. Even if you're not staying in the hotel it's a must visit for rock history fans and a wonderful place to just relax and chill.

Dear Patrick C,

Thank you for your fantastic review of Hilton Amsterdam!

The world famous John & Yoko Suite is one of our most spectacular suites; it has a great story behind it. Based on availability our concierge is more than happy to go give you a tour of this magnificent suite. The theatre view of the Garden Terrace is one of the best places in Amsterdam to enjoy afternoon drinks and relax in the sun.

I hope to get the chance to meet you during your next visit.
