Had a three night stay here with my sister while in town for a long weekend featuring a major concert at the Amsterdam Arena.
Plus points: Location is very close to Centraal Station, so convenient for travel from the airport, and also the main terminus for trams, metro and canal tours. The GVB ticket office isnright there too, making it easy tomget a 48 hour pass. However, still walking distance to the Red Light district, Dam Square, the canals and Anne Frank House. It's very, very new, and spotlessly clean. The room - even our most basic room - is well appointed with fantastic shower, good toiletries (including condtioner), hair dryer, iron and ironing board, and iMac for TV as well as other media and Internet access. Floor to ceiling windows with - in our case - great views over the IJ. Complimentary warm cookie at check in, and complimentary bottled water available during the day. Free wifi throughout. "Sky lounge" bar on the top floor with fantastic views over the city.
Minus points: being a Hilton chain, it's a bit sterile and lacks any of the character or charm you can find in other Amsterdam hotels. Our twin room was small, with two single beds which were very close together. The service at reception was a bit laid back - massive long reception desk that only ever seemed to have about two people on it. It seems to be used by some tour parties, and this could cause an issue if you arrived at the same time as one. Our room was on the 7th floor and faced the rear of the hotel, and there was some noise from trains but not too bad - but if you're used to sleeping in silence it may be an issue. The Sky lounge was lovely, but the cheapest cocktails were €12 so we only visited once.
All in all, it was just about perfect for our needs, and certainly worth the £92 per night for a twin room on a deal I got through Expedia.
