Hilton Amsterdam Review
On a recent business trip, we had the chance to stay in the Hilton Amsterdam. The hotel’s locale is one of the features that made us choose this property for our stay. Situated just outside the old city center, yet close to the business area, the Hilton Amsterdam is convenient to visit when arriving by car. It is a modern hotel that offers contemporary rooms, a health club, several restaurants and beautiful views. The hotel is ideally based for exploring the city and is within walking distance of many top attractions, restaurants and bars. It has a lovely outdoor terrace with views of the canal and overall, was a very pleasant place to stay.
The Hilton Amsterdam is an ideal base to explore Amsterdam’s historical culture. Amsterdam is packed with things to see and do. The city is renowned for its plethora of museums and art galleries, from the world-renowned Van Gogh Museum to the Concert Hall and Rijksmuseum, excellent shopping and a relaxed café culture. Best explored on foot or by bicycle like a local, colorful flower markets, traditional Amsterdam cafés, and picturesque surrounds leave a lasting impression.
The hotel offers a variety of rooms and suites, from Guest Rooms which feature standard, modern hotel room amenities, to the Executive Suites, which offer an added touch of luxury. Our room was a standard Hilton room - spacious and clean with stylish décor and an en-suite bathroom. The room had all the modern amenities associated with Hilton – individual air-conditioning, wireless Internet access, an LCD-TV and lovely views over the city, however, nothing stood out as extra special.
Restaurants and fitness center
We enjoyed an excellent buffet breakfast in the morning, which was included in our rate. We didn’t eat at the hotel restaurant, however, did have dinner and drinks at the bar, which had a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.
We also visited the health club and fitness center, which is situated next to the hotel. As this fitness center is independently operated and we have HHonors Gold status, we were not charged the usual usage fee. We liked the spacious fitness center and also relaxed in the sauna and steam bath.
