This is a typical Hilton Hotel. All the great amenities and as always, comfortable rooms...

For business travelers, this could be a great location. Its removed from all the action. The downside for vacation/holiday travelers is that this is far from everything!

We loved staying at the Hilton Amsterdam Hotel. Although it is not right downtown, the museum district and other downtown attractions are easily walkable. You can also take the excellent tram system which runs frequently from just about anywhere in the city. The hotel staff was very friendly and eager to please.

The hotel is located in a high-end neighbourhood on one of the canals. We were upgraded to a junior suite. It had plenty of room, an espresso/coffee maker, mini fridge, living room area and a hugh balcony overlooking the city. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Being on the canal side or the city side of the hotel are both great. It's in a quiet neighbour...

Hotel is clean and attentive staff. Early check ins are allowed to use the VIP area where they will receive a VIP treatment. The rooms are small but the service compensate for this. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Nice hotel. Staff were pleasant. Room was decent. Location is great, quiet, but only a short tram ride to town centre. Decent selection at breakfast buffet. Bathrooms and bedroom were clean and tidy. Shame the wifi is only free in the lobby.

Just returned from a family break. The room was excellent (Junior Suite), large enough for a family of three to relax without falling over each other. It's in a lovely quiet suburban area but ideally located in terms of getting about on the trams. Whilst there our little boy was poorly, the hotel staff were wonderful and made it seem as if nothing was a problem. Would happily recommend.

Room Tip: It's worth the upgrade price for a suite and use of the Exec Lounge.

The Hilton is a modern chain hotel at a nice location next to a canal, with its own boat landing pier. There is a lawn close to the canal, thus the hotel is often used for weddings.

On the tenth (top) floor there is a fancy lounge with views all around. In summer, the doors are open and tables are put outside. The lounge has a decent snack selection (hot and cold) and drinks in the evening and also serves breakfast; however, the food selection at the main breakfast room was far bigger.

Service is generally good, though at some times indifferent to the point of unfriendly. I was asked to leave the breakfast room for wearing flip flops (and jeans), but when I refused they gave in. It was possibly because of a large wedding group whose people were very formally dressed, but I thought it was inappropriate by staff. Once, when we came back at night, the front door was locked and we were interrogated like criminals before being let in, even though we had our room keys.

Hotel guests have access to the excellent gym which is adjacent to the hotel and connected by a internal foot path. There are also bikes for rent.

The only main drawback is the location - it's a little far to walk to the city centre, even though there are tram stops not far from the hotel entrance.
