A night out with the family at DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Central Station

I was recently invited with my family to stay overnight in the beautiful hotel DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Central Station. When you want to book a night away with your family, you probably don’t think of a Hilton hotel in the first place, but we thoroughly enjoyed it and were spoiled immensely. This is highly recommended, also for families.

Hilton Amsterdam

DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station

At a Hilton Hotel, anywhere in the world, you can enjoy luxurious comfort and culture. The location of the DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Central Station is perfect, with a beautiful view of the water and in the middle of the city. The many attractions nearby make this hotel ideal for families. With a view of the Amsterdam canals and the beautiful city center, the stay in the Executive Suite with the four of us was a pleasure. Upon arrival, the guests receive a delicious warm cake with chocolate, which the receptionist has in a heated drawer when you check in. I like these little things and an eye for detail.

The DoubleTree by Hilton is a modern hotel located on the Oosterdokseiland in the middle of the bustling heart of Amsterdam. The pleasant shopping streets and beautiful sights are all within walking distance. Due to its location near Central Station, the hotel is easy to reach by public transport, but also by car, you can park your car in the public parking garage under the hotel. Do you want to book an overnight stay in Amsterdam before you fly the next day? Schiphol International Airport is only a 20-minute drive away, if you prefer to go by train, there is a direct line to the airport every 10 minutes.  

Executive Suite

Executive guests who sleep in an Executive Suite have exclusive access to the Executive lounge. Here you can get drinks and snacks from 5 pm to 7 pm, which are included in the price of your room. Furthermore, breakfast is included in the price. We slept in the Executive Bridge Room with city view. Despite the fact that you sleep in the middle of the bustle of the city, you will not hear anything from the soundproof rooms. This room has everything you would expect from a luxurious family room, high and large windows (7 in total), a large living room with sofa (which is transformed into a bed), large flat screen, dining table, armchair with side table, minibar, coffee and tea corner with a Nespresso machine and a kettle, a separate bedroom with a king-size bed and again a flat screen, bathroom with bath, toilet and separate shower cubicle. In addition, the room has 24-hour room service and your own bathrobe and slippers.

Eastwood Beer & Grill

In the evening we thoroughly enjoyed an extensive dinner in the hotel at Eastwood Beer & Grill. Here you can eat special pieces of meat, such as the Tomahawk Steak. My husband and I had included a wine pairing so that we got a different wine with each dish. The sommelier was a very nice Greek man who talked passionately about the beautiful wines. The kids got very photogenic mocktails and our waiter was a spontaneous guy who made the evening extra fun. I think the pictures speak for themselves, all the dishes were delicious with the Eastwood Ice Bucket as a finishing touch where you make your own dessert. In the summer this restaurant has a nice terrace on the water.


The Eastwood Beer & Grill is transformed into a breakfast location in the morning. All imaginable things you can eat for breakfast are provided. In addition, they come to your table with the question whether the cook can make a pancake or a filled omelette for you. I went for a delicious pancake with powdered sugar.


This Hilton hotel has its own Starbucks. As a coffee addict and a big Starbucks fan, this makes me very happy. By the way, this makes my whole family happy, we don’t walk past Starbucks without ordering something. Although the rooms are equipped with a coffee corner, you can order coffee at this Starbucks via room service.  

Award-Winning rooftop lounge bar SkyLounge Amsterdam

The SkyLounge is located on the top floor of the DoubleTree By Hilton hotel. Here you can eat and drink and you have a great view over Amsterdam, in the summer it is very pleasant to stay on the large roof terrace. This lounge bar has been chosen as Amsterdam’s best hotel bar for the fourth year in a row. You don’t have to be a guest of the hotel to book a nice evening here with a DJ and cocktail shakers.
