Oyster Hotel Review

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Amsterdam Centraal Station


Next to Centraal station, this ultra-modern hotel exudes energy.

Housed in a stark, sharply angled building with lots of ice-blue glass, the 11-floor Doubletree exudes the energy of the adjacent train station. It’s a bustling scene in the vast, high-ceilinged, high-windowed lobby, where a mix of tourists and business travelers come and go. True to its status as an all-hours, station-ready hotel, the Doubletree offers a 24-hour fitness center and 24-hour lobby bar that serves light fare. Rooms are contemporary and come with Apple iMAC computer-TV combos. The centerpiece of the hotel is the 11th-floor SkyLounge rooftop bar, an Amsterdam hot spot offering one of the best views of the city's river and historic center.

Right next to Centraal Station, meaning easy access to trains and trams

The Doubletree's convenient location next to bike paths and Centraal Station means easy access -- by train to points beyond, and by tram and bicycle to Amsterdam's Canal District and historic center. Dam Square, the Royal Palace, and De Nieuwe Kerk Church are about a half mile southwest, and the Anne Frank House is about a mile in the same direction. The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, and Stedelijk museums are a mile and half south. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is 14 miles away.

Spacious, contemporary rooms with Apple iMac TVs

The 553 rooms at the Doubletree are spacious and modern, with white walls and plush white cotton bedding -- dashes of color come from the artwork and furniture. The floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of light, and can be opened for fresh air. Some rooms have views of the IJ River or Amsterdam's historic district. An Apple iMac combination computer and TV are among the in-room amenities, along with free Wi-Fi. Rooms also come with work desks, ergonomic chairs, coffee/tea makers, laptop-compatible safes, bathrobes, and mini-fridges. Suites have sitting areas, and executive rooms come with access to an executive lounge with free breakfast and free afternoon drinks and appetizers.

24-hour fitness center and rooftop bar with majestic views

The Doubletree has a large, 24-hour fitness center with elliptical machines, treadmills, free weights, and exercise balls. The hotel's standout feature, though, is its SkyLounge rooftop bar, which offers outdoor seating and splendid views. The bar serves innovative fare, wine, and cocktails, and has live music and dancing. There's also a cafe restaurant, a Starbucks coffee stand, and a 24-hour lobby bar and library. Guests can also rent bicycles, and check their e-mail on one of the public iMacs. The Doubletree's signature chocolate chip cookies are offered to guests at check-in.
