“Great New Years Eve Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Family trip to Amsterdam for New Years Eve. Lovely canal views from our rooms and in a very pleasant area, away from the centre but so easy either to walk or catch a tram into the centre.

The hotel felt spacious and clean and all staff were cheerful, polite and helpful. The concierge was especially helpul giving us useful information re what was open & when, which tram to get from where, maps provided, vouchers off etc.

Breakfasts were delightful, especially when "the pancake man" arrived at our table each morning. A really nice, personal touch - how could we resist?! The prosecco lady was also very welcome!

Great views from the exec lounge. Fireworks over the city lasted more than an hour and we had the best view ever. Plenty to do in Amsterdam, all within walking distance. Recommend the Heineken Experience and The Van Gogh Museum.

Would like to return as there is a lot to do and see and it is very easy to get to. If it suits, try the overnight boat from Harwich to Hook of Holland then it's only just over 40 miles to drive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a canal view.

Dear LibbiOxfordshire,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Hilton Amsterdam on Tripadvisor.

We are delighted to read about your enjoyable stay at our hotel during New Years Eve.

The Hilton Amsterdam is located in the residential South of Amsterdam and at walking distance from the famous Museumplein, RAI congress centre and the beautiful Vondel Park. The city centre is indeed easily accessible via tram or by taking a longer 20-25 minutes walk.

We thank you for complimenting our team members. The aim of our team members is to strive for service excellence and to constantly exceed guest expectations.

It is a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed the breakfast buffet with the personal assistance of our breakfast chef and prosecco serving waitress.


Thank you for staying at the Hilton Amsterdam and we look forward into welcoming you back in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Roberto Payer
General Manager

Dear Wilhelmina,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Hilton Amsterdam on Tripadvisor.

We are pleased to read that you enjoyed the canal view and location of the hotel.

The Hilton Amsterdam is indeed located in the residential and exclusive South of Amsterdam while the city centre is easily accessible via tram. Another option is to walk to the city centre, which takes approximately 20-25 minutes with many attractions on its way.

We thank you for complimenting our team members. The aim of our team members is to strive for service excellence and to constantly exceed guest expectations.

Stayed at this hotel in November 2012. Check in was not till the afternoon, but we arrived early and they allowed us to check in straight away which was very convenient. Rooms were comfortable with a view of the canal and staff polite and helpful. The hotel is on the outskirts of the city, but in a pleasant location, and it is only a five minute walk along a canal overlooking exclusive properties to reach the tram stop(7.5 euros a day). The concierge was very helpful, giving us a map of the city and suggestions of things to do. Leidesplein is a good place to eat with many restaurants. The breakfast was very pleasant, with a selection of bacon, sausage, eggs etc, but our highlight was a cheerful chef who came round with wonderful hot pancakes and chocolate sauce and kept plying us with bubbly for breakfast. He really made it an enjoyable experience. The only downside was that our room was near to the lift, which was very noisy.

I'm staying in this hotel now , I left my room in the morning and we came back around 17:00 and nobody cleaned our room . After I asked to do so they asked us to go out for 20 min so they will do it . They finished after less than 15 so you can understand nobody cleaned nothing ....

Second because its 5stars hotel you charge 27 euro per day for wifi - are you crazy , it's basic service that mostly given for free

Sorry for choosing this hotel

Dear Mr. Amit,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Hilton Amsterdam on Tripadvisor.

We are sorry to hear that our Housekeeping team did not meet your expectations. Our rooms should indeed get cleaned every day and we apologize for this inconvenience and have discussed it with our team members. However, the daily cleaning of each room does not take longer than 15 minutes as it does not include a bed sheet change. This is done every three days due to sustainability reasons but if the guest wishes it can be requested daily.

We would like to inform you that our hotel will offer free internet in all public areas of the hotel by the end of January.

Thank you for staying at the Hilton Amsterdam while we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

The hotel's location has been subjected to debate over and over again. The location is one of the reasons I chose this hotel. We completed our third stays over, say, five years and each time this hotel offered good service, quality room, an elegant atmosphere and -yes- a convenient location in a friendly, urban, tranquille neighbourhood next to public transport (streetcars). The railway station Amsterdam Zuid (four tram stops) offers great value when coming from Schiphol airport or traveling to other destinations in the Netherlands.
Staff has been top notch, some of it went out of their ways. Breakfast experience was great. Room rates can be exorbitantly high, so I would wait until they are reasonable enogh.
I am looking forward to coming back to this hotel.

The Hilton Amsterdam is located in the residential South of Amsterdam, surrounded by beautiful canals and exclusive shopping streets. In the South of Amsterdam is also the business district as well as the RAI Congress Centre while the famous Museumplein, Vondel Park and Royal Concert Hall are just at walking distance from the hotel.

The city centre is easily accessible via tram or a 20 min walk through the beautiful exclusive neighbourhood with many local restaurants and bars. The railway station Amsterdam Zuid makes it convenient to arrive from the airport as well.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in early December 2012, and we couldn't have been happier with it! I followed the advice of other reviewers and contacted the hotel in advance to reserve a room on a high floor with a canal view. I am a Gold HHonours member, and we were upgraded to a lovely room with a wonderful view over the city!

I have to make particular mention of the excellent service we received. The staff were extremely helpful and spoke flawless English! They went out of their way to help and really made us feel very special during our stay.

The hotel is a little outside the city centre, it must be said, and unless you like to walk, you might want to take a tram into town to go sightseeing. The hotel also has a bike rental service, which we didn't take advantage of this time, but which we thought was a nice touch!

Overall, a great experience! I would definitely recommend it and will definitely be going back!

We stayed here for 3 nights for our wedding anniversary over New Years Eve. Booked as I am a hilton gold member and the reviews were good on tripadvisor.
We got upgraded to an executive suite on the 7th floor - room 701. Corner room with a stunning canal view - definitely worth paying for. Disappointed the shower is over the bath, I do like my hotel rooms with a separate shower but this was a small niggle.
We booked dinner in Robertos for NYE/ wedding anniversary and it was wow! Mix up on the wine package and we had asked for an intimate table which was not initially given but we did get moved. I have to say it was worth the money, €150, as they opened up the executive lounge after 11.15pm exclusively for restaurant guests. Awesome! What a view of the fireworks over the city and an excellent atmosphere..! Very, very highly recommend for NYE.
The hotel is a 20 minute walk from the city through a beautiful residential neighbourhood, with some lovely shops and restaurants. Make sure your walk into the city includes P C hooftstraat, Amsterdams answer to Bond Street, London. We loved the walk into the city everyday but the weather was kind to us. I can imagine if it was raining it would be a bind, but the tram stop is only 300 yards away and the hotel sell 1 day tickets. My tip would be to buy a 3 day ticket if there for 3 days though as more cost effective. The hotel is located between the city and the airport so taxis are cheaper. It cost us €35 and the hotel will organise so please contact them.
Breakfasts fantastic and the staff are incredibly attentive.
Anne franks house is a must - book your tickets online as there is a massive queue otherwise! Do venture out from the main area of Amsterdam and visit the 9 streets - de Negen straatjes - what a beautiful area.
I have to say we loved the walk back every evening too, stopping at one of the local residential restaurants on the way.. We were glad to get away from the hustle and bustle of amsterdam.

Room Tip: Get a canal view and suite if you can afford it. 701 was lovely :)
