Fodor's Expert Review DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station

Oosterdoksstraat 4 , Amsterdam, North Holland, 1011 DK, Netherlands

If real estate is all about location, location, location, this hotel has it: perched on the water, right next to Centraal Station, it’s also about the view, view, view here, while easy access makes it an excellent airport hotel alternative. With 20 interconnecting rooms, various family packages and kid-friendly amenities (including activity trolleys, a play area, and children’s menus), as well as many nearby sights suitable for families, this hotel is a great option if you're traveling with little ones. The award-winning 11th floor SkyLounge is this hotel’s shining star with panoramic views and a large outdoor terrace where you can watch the living painting around you: from the boats passing on the always-busy IJ River to the Amsterdam gables against a dramatic Dutch skyline. Fantastic house cocktails make it almost too easy to while the hours away.
