We stayed at the DoubleTree Hilton early in January 2012. You cannot miss the hotel - you turn left after leaving the Central Station and it is the first big modern block you come to. Not that attractive from the outside and seemingly no real Dutch look to it at all.
The Hotel reception is spacious and very corporate. The bar is a good size and very modern in its style.
Breakfast is served in the large cafe on the ground floor and we found this to be excellent...a huge choice and excellently managed when the cafe is busy.
The 4 lifts serve all the floors but to access bedrooms you have to use your door key.
We did find that on busy days the 4 lifts were not enough. One was always out of service.
The room we had was a good size...excellent bathroom and shower. Each room has an iMac computer that has great sound quality and picture for TV too.
One thing I would check if I was going to the hotel again is that the room has a view...ours looked out onto a wall...not really aproblem as in a city like Amsterdam you dont spens a lot of time in the room! However a great view would have been good.
The staff at the hotel were great, friendly and efficient at all times, they made you feel welcome.
The hotel has an amzing Sky Bar. Panoramic views over the town...almost worth the inflated prices but the bar does have a great atmosphere in the venings and drinks come with small snacks...it is still expensive but worth a visit. In the summer there is a huge patio on the oof too.
I would recommend this hotel for a good visit to Amsterdam.
The city is not cheap. We come from London and prices are similar. We did a boat trip with wine and cheese which was excellent but overpriced at 30 euros each.
Wrap up warm in the winter the Dutch wind is COLD.
