“Best Hilton I've stayed in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2005

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel with my wife and it was easily the best that I've encountered from this chain.

The hotel is in a really good location, just 10 minutes or so by taxi from the airport. It is in a nice area and we felt safe walking around. The hotel is only about 10-15 minutes level walk from the Van Gogh and Rijjksmuseum, and the nice shops. It is by no means in the centre, but I wouldn't say it was remote either.

Our room had a city view and was well equipped despite not being a deluxe or anything like that. It was clean, modern and airy. This is also the only hotel which I've been to abroad which had BBC1 on the TV rather than just BBC World. Not that important I know, but at least we didn't miss Bleak House!

The staff - and in fact all the locals we encountered - were all extremely friendly and we didn't get any of the forced "have a nice day" stuff of some other places we've been. The restaurant - Roberto's - was fantastic and there was a really good selection at both breakfast and dinner. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, room service was also excellent in both selection and quality.

All in all, a brilliant short break and I would recommend it to anybody.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2005

After an 8 hour delay leaving Cardiff because of snow we were late arriving to Amsterdam. We booked the Airport Hotel Shuttle bus at the Tourist Information desk at Arrivals in Schiphol (also we bought our 3day bus/tram ticket),The shuttle bus had us at the Hilton in about 10 minutes.The check in was fast and the staff everywhere in the hotel are amazingly friendly and helpful.
We had dinner in Robertos.On Friday nights they have Fish Night which is fantastic, There is a cold buffet spread, then fish soup,then you choose your fish for main course which is cooked to your liking.There must have been at least a dozen different fish and the young Canadian chef was very helpful with choosing and advice. Plus as much wine as you liked to drink !
The next morning we went for breakast (included) I have never seen such a spread, absolutely everything you can imagine even champagne ! The pancakes are to die for, any type of egg cooked for you. Anything you want, nothing is too much trouble , the staff are incredible.We had trouble eating again even at 8pm!
Ask anything at the Concierge they are amazing with maps and knowledge esp Dwight and also Gio who helped us to internet check in our return flight and also booked our return shuttle to the airport.
The room was small but perfectly formed !Inc tea and coffee making facilities, it had almost everything and was spotless. Only slippers and dressing gowns were missing.
The only disappointment for us was that as HHonour members we were not upgraded to the Executive floor ,although we were given a small cake for our Anniversary celebrations.
Yes the hotel is a little out of the centre but the tram is close, frequent and fast even on Sundays.
We would happily stay again.
