“Everything and more :D”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

I have recently just returned from a 4 day trip to Amsterdam where we stayed in the most pleasant and helpful hotel we've stayed in!

The rooms were big and clean with lovely views from the 9th floor over looking the canal to which we were able to see most of the city. We had bath robes and slippers which can in very useful on a morning :)

We had access to the executive lounge, your staff up there need to be commended for their helpfulness and kindness. They were very attentive and couldn't do more for you! My friend injured herself while we were in Amsterdam the staff organised extra pillows in our room so she cold rest her ankle, along with plenty of ice. Special thanks to Marion, a great smily face when your feeling bait delicate after the night before :) wiljam ( in training ) sorry I'm not sure how to spell his name! A pleasant young man who you would think had been working for the hotel for years! And steph who was able to give knowledge of the city and there for a friendly chat on an evening :)

We hired bikes from the hotel which we enjoyed throughout our whole stay! A great way to see the city, very safe, sometimes I think it's safer on the bike instead of walking!

overall a great city and great hotel, would definitely recommend and would stay again

Thanks for a lovely stay

We took our son and his girlfriend to Amsterdam for their join 40th birthdays weekend of 18th February. Situated in a quieter part of the City, the hotel is beautiful. The rooms were spacious and the staff probably the most helpful, attentive, well-mannered people we have every met. Breakfast at the sensible time - up to 11.00 - on Sunday was very welcome as we had sailed overnight on the Ferry Friday 17th, returning overnight on 19th so the Sunday was our only 'rest' morning. Breakfast was fantastic - and the chef asked if he could organise some extra, like Eggs Benedict and other specials.The garden at the back looked stunning (even at this time of year) and they can organise canal cruises from the jetty there. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and should we be in Amsterdam again, that would be our preference to stay in. One drawback - no swimming pool.

Room Tip: Rear views and 6th floor upwards. Corner suites looked massive!

I stayed here last feburary over valentines weekend with my partner,
The front off the hotel doesnt look much but inside wow! beautiful decor
staff where really friendly and welcoming, extra items i had requested where in my room on arrival which was great. we had a beautiful spacious room on one off the top floors over looking the canal with amazing views over the city. The restaurant food is lovely if a little expencive. The hotel offered a turn down service each evening off our stay. The first morning valentines day we decided to have breakfast in bed which was lovely breakfast was served on a table with flowers in the room, It did cost little over 20 euro to have breakfast deliveried to the room so the next mornin we ate in the restaurant. The hotel is a bit out off the main city centre about 5 mins walk to the tram stop number 5 will bring you right into the city in 10-15mins staying in this fantastic hotel we did not mind the short travel into city.

Room Tip: request room over looking the canal they have beauitful view off the city which is also lovely at ni...

The Hilton Amsterdam is one of my favorite hotels in Amsterdam - if not the world. The location is amazing (in Amsterdam Zuid, which is not touristy), the staff is nice, and the rooms luxurious. I love staying here whenever I am in Amsterdam. But if you want to be in the "center of the action." This is not the place to stay.

Dear Jen J,

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

We are very grateful to read that Hilton Amsterdam is one of your favorite hotels and that you enjoy our rooms and services.

Hilton Amsterdam is famous for its John and Yoko suite, which has been created in memory of the world famous “Bed-in for peace” of John Lennon and Yoko Ono of 1969.

Hilton Amsterdam is located in a residential area near to exclusive shopping areas and close to the RAI and other main congress centres. Furthermore, it is only a short walk to the Vondelpark and the Museumplein with renowned museums like the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum.

Thank you very much for staying at the Hilton Amsterdam and we hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

In December 2011, I stayed at the Hilton Amsterdam with my new company. We were there for one night and all of us had dinner in Roberto's restaurant.

Overall, the stay was a very enjoyable experience (and not only because I didn't have to pay!), with a swift check-in and very well appointed rooms.

Decor was very pleasant and the room was fresh and modern with a nice cosy feel to it. The bathroom was a good size and featured a powerful shower situated over the bath.

The view from our room was pretty outstanding, affording quite the vista looking out over (some of) the city. I suppose that really the only negative I could give the hotel is that it is quite far away from the city sights. We walked and it took us about 45 minutes to get into the main part of Amsterdam.

I would find it difficult to fault the Hilton Amsterdam in any way, and I certainly think it upholds the Hilton tradition extremely well. In the evening, my work colleagues and I ate dinner at Roberto's restaurant (in the hotel) which, as the name suggests, is an Italian affair. The food was very good, although I suspect it would have been even better had we not been eating en masse.

The following morning (after an excellent night's sleep) we enjoyed a real 5-star quality breakfast, with the chef coming around to each table individually to ask for your egg-based preferences - a nice touch!

And of course, for fans of The Beatles, the Hilton Amsterdam is the famous hotel in which John and Yoko staged their legendary 'bed in' back in 1969 (although I forgot to look for their room when I stayed there!).

Overall: a great hotel, but not so great if you want to be close to the city highlights.

Room Tip: Floor 6 is a good one. But actually, they are all good!

Dear Beesyellow22,

We are very grateful for the extended review and the room tip that you posted on Trip Advisor.

We are pleased to read that our chef’s personal attention was appreciated and that you enjoyed the bedroom and the restaurant. Did you know that Roberto’s Restaurant will again be featured in the restaurant guides Gault Millau and Bib Gourmand in 2012?

Indeed the Hilton Amsterdam is located in the south of the city centre in a quiet residential neighbourhood, a trip to the heart of the city centre will take about 15 minutes by public transport.

Thank you very much for staying at the Hilton Amsterdam and we hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

I liked this hotel. It's located outside the city centre and main attraction areas in a nice and quite residential area, to get to the city centre you need to take a tram (kinda expensive) and it takes 15 minutes. So if it's your first Amsterdam visit i would recommend to find smth more centrally located, otherwise a high hotel is good. Rooms are nice, cozy in dark traditional Dutch colours and well equipped. The bed was really comfortable for sleep. The breakfast was amazing and from huge windows you can see taking off and approaching Schiphol planes. All services 9restaurant, boat cruise, the internet) are unbelievable expensive, like 17 eur for 1 hour of slow wifi. Crazy.

Let me start by saying the staff was wonderfull. The manager should get a raise because everyone was helpful and went above and beyond. We were offered sparkling wine at breakfest, dinner recommendations in the executive lounge and turndown service in the room. From the outside the hotel is nothing special, but the rooms are well done. If you are gold member or stay on the executive level, the lounge is a bit small but very well supplied. The gym is very nice and large by Hilton standards again it is free for gold + members. Yes, this property is not downtown. However you can take the 16 tram that drops you off at Emmastraat station. When you get out of Central train station - follow 'tram' sign outside. All the trams stop here. You can buy a 1hr (2.6 Euro), 24hr (7 Euro), or 48hr ticket in the office just outside of the train station get in line or buy at the ticket machine (its easy). Or you can buy a 1hr ticket from the driver, not sure if you can buy 1-2 day passes from the driver. It takes 20 minutes to get from Central Train station to Emmastraat. When you get off the tram at Emmerstraat look in the direction the tram is traveling, now look left, you can see the hotel 2 blocks away on your left had side. I would recommend using the trams instead of a hop-on-hop off bus. The Hitlon has a map the lists all the sites and tram/metro routes. Restaurant at Hilton is fine for breakfast but for dinner take a 5 minute walk to Bella Vista - good Italian. Good value and great people - always a plus when going on vacation.
