Would not hesitate to recommend paying the extra per night for Hilton's central Location, over less central locations that I have used, eg Crowne Plaza by Exhibition Centre. You get both excellent central location and decent room as a package, )ie price is not just higher because of location and u suffer poor rooms, as Hilton rooms were also excellent )
Stayed one Saturday night with breakfast included. Full Breakfast was just OK, European cooked breakfasts are well short of UK fare, eg lack of Sausages, Bacon etc etc. The continental part was more than fair.
Room pleasant, roomy, clean and modern, with no wear to froom furnishings. Nice clean, spacious bathroom too. RoomSafe etc in room if needed for passport/laptop.
Arrived by train to Centraal Station, only 10minutes by Taxi (15euro) or Metro (2 euro), with
Metro Station below ground in square right opposite.
Lots of external bars, restaurants choice here, plus Cathedral/Shops/Metro-stops, just about best possible central location possible, and with tra,/metro network at only only 2euro 1-way, you can get everywhere easily, fast and cheaply from hotel door. (i did not use hotel bar as went out Saturday night )
Reception, Staff, all efficient, helpful, friendly and polite, no real queues at either checkin or checkout, each of which took me only 5minutes to complete.
Yes I will be staying here again, as well as at Crowne Plaza which is a hotel I will continue to use, but no longer exclusively, especially if I wish to go out in evenings in the summer Hilton location is a winner.
