“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Amsterdam is expensive but a Hilton away from the city center was great. Easy tram and bus transportation to major sites & downtown, close walks to great local restaurants. Buy daily tram pass in gift shop. Concierge's local restaurant recommendations were great.

Stayed here for a few days on business and enjoyed my stay.
Pros: Great location on a canal with nice gardens . Room overlooked Amsterdam and location was convenient to walk into town without being in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. Rooms were well appointed. Gym was attached to hotel and looked like it has a lot of decent workout facilities although I never had the chance to use them. Food served at conferences was good

Cons: Beds were very hard surprising given the trend to softer 'heavenly' type beds by the major chains. Front desk was overwhelmed at times and did not answer the phone when I rang down.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floors with a view facing the canal

I stayed there two nights a week or so ago. Very nice. Service was outstanding. Beautiful views of the canal. Room was clean and pretty good. Location is a little far from the nightlife but taxis or the tram is easily available. The tram can easily take you to the museum area and central Amsterdam. More of a business hotel but I had a great experience. However be prepared to drop some Euros if you want food or drink.

I stayed here for one night with my family. We arrived at the hotel at 7:30am fully expecting to just be able to drop off our stuff pending a 3pm check-in. We were very surprised and happy when our two rooms were ready for us immediately. We had lovely canal view rooms, which appeared to have been renovated fairly recently. Excellent and free wi-fi was easy to access and had good bandwidth. Our rate included breakfast, which was excellent. It included an excellent buffet selection coupled with made-to-order french toast and eggs. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, but just a 10 minute walk to the museum area and close to the tram. If you looking for a hotel in Amsterdam, you can't go wrong with Hilton!

Room Tip: Canal-view rooms are great!

This was a very nice hotel that had very clean rooms and excellent service. We had a problem with our room but this was quickly dealt with by a very helpful team of staff. The italian restaurant was also exquisite, and there was a large array of food at breakfast. The only downside of this hotel is that it is not located in the very centre of the city, but I did not find this a problem and in fact quite the opposite. The neighbourhood in which the hotel is located in is very quiet and family friendly, with the voldenpark round the corner through which you can walk to the centre of the city. The museum area is also in close proximity. There is also a tram which passes very close to the hotel which can take you all around amsterdam. Although you are not right in the centre of the city this can be an advantage as Amsterdam is a very noisy and busy city and sometimes this can be overwhelming. All in all a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the garden not the car park!

Dear Nicola,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Hilton Amsterdam.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed the excellent service and the location. It is very convenient to take tram 16 towards the city centre. It departs right behind the hotel as you mentioned.

I have personally shared your recommendations regarding Roberto’s Restaurant with the team and I hope to get the chance to meet you during your next visit.

This is my second review of this hotel. My last review was over a year ago. Still the same great service. I like the location of the quiet upscale residential neighborhood. Stayed in a junior suite on the club level and had access to the Executive Lounge. The hotel is located on a canal and there are a number of excellent restaurants within a short walking distance of the hotel. I have reviewed these. Check in was easy as was check out. The concierge staff is excellent at making reservations for restaurants, providing directions to museums, etc. You have the option of having breakfast on the executive level or in the downstairs restaurant. We opted for the restaurant as you have more options. They have an excellent buffet with cold meats and fish, cheeses, bacon, eggs, sausages, breads, cereals, yogurts, etc. If you can't find what you want, they will make it for you. My wife had poached eggs most mornings and we stayed 8 nights at this Hilton. When in Amsterdam, this is my "Go To" hotel. The tram stops are close to the hotel and it was enjoyable riding the trams around Amsterdam. Tram cards can be purchased in the gift shop at the hotel or you can purchase online passes that cover transportation as well as entrance fees to museums.

Room Tip: I absolutely recommend booking a junior suite with a balcony. Be sure to ask for one with a balcony...

We enjoyed the hotel and everything was good. Well kept older hotel with spacious rooms. It is a little out of the town center, but close to the train. There is a great roof top lounge that has some nice views and it does sit on a canal that is very nice. We would stay again.

Dear Lovetotravelfamily,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

I am happy to hear to you enjoyed your stay with us and in particular the Executive Lounge. On the 10th floor you have a fantastic 360⁰ panoramic view of the city of Amsterdam.

The hotel is indeed located in the most upscale area of Amsterdam ‘Oud-Zuid’, which is just outside the somewhat busy city centre. Multiple trams depart close to the hotel and take you into the old city centre in 10 minutes. All the major museums are within walking distance in about 10 minutes as well.

Your positive review works as great motivation for the team to continue the high quality service you expect from us.

I hope we may welcome you again in the near future.

Best regards,

Alessio Colavecchio
