My partner and I have just returned from a wonderful weekend break in Amsterdam staying in the Doubletree by Hilton Centraal Station hotel. From the moment of our arrival when we were greeted with hot cookies to the time of our swift and hassle-free departure we had a wonderful stay. We were on the 7th floor with a room facing out towards old Amsterdam.
The room was immaculate and as shown on the website pictures. Having access to a free and fast internet service courtesy of the iMAC was great and it also doubles as your TV. There were complimentary teas (including peppermint which is a rarity) and coffee in the the room together with a hair dryer, ironing board and iron and a well stocked mini-bar. There were even spare adaptors if needed. The room was air conditioned but my only minor gripe was that the room could get quite warm (this was february) even with the air con on. However, you could open a small window which helped bring the temperature down.
The breakfast was great with a huge selection of hot and cold foods to choose from at the self-service bar. Room service was quick and courteous and you are liteerally just 5 minutes walk from Centraal Station. The hotel also had additional desk staff on at departure to avoid any delays.
Tip: when walking to the hotel from the station keep the hotels downstairs cafe and restaurant to your left and walk past to locate the hotel entrance (it feels a little like you may have missed the entrance but you haven't - just a few metres more).
All in all, a great stay in a great city.
