Lovely hotel in centre of Amsterdam. Recently refurbished. Staff had the right mix of friendliness and efficiency without being obsequious. We booked 3 deluxe rooms and one was upgraded to the fantastic loft suite which will spoil us for anything else!

Spent a very enjoyable 3 nights at the Art'otel earlier this month. It is in a perfect location to get to from the airport and also for exploring Amsterdam. The breakfast was delicious, the bar had a great atmosphere and the evening food in the restaurant was very tasty and of a high standard.
On arrival we felt the reception area design did not live up to its 5 star hotel status, but the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
The bedroom was very modern, with everything one needs for a perfect break. Regretably the modern design made the bedside drawer and dressing table drawer unusable as the drawers were to slim to take any of our clothes etc, A bit of shame when we like to keep a tidy room.
The lighting in the bedroom was very creative but I would have liked to have had some where in the room/bathroom where I could have had a bright light to make it easier to apply make-up.
However, these are just minor issues and my husband and I would most certainly stay with you again and would recommend. Thanks for a great stay.

"Lots of character, spacious rooms, welcoming staff"
My friend and I stayed in this wonderful hotel in mid-September through a deal with Expedia, it had everything you could wish for in the room including bath products, bath robe and slippers, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, free minibar (restocked daily), free Nespresso machine, even an umbrella! Also, you get a free map on arrival which was better than the one we paid for at the tourist information office.
We were allowed to check in a few hours early which was good and the staff were very attentive and not at all snobby which you can sometimes get in posh hotels. We had requested a canal view room on a high floor but were given a harbour view room on a high floor which was still lovely as it had a nice view and we could hardly hear any noise from the road.
I have seen a couple of negative reviews about the décor of this hotel. I can understand that the art deco style may not be everyone’s cup of tea but personally I’d rather stay in a lovely old building with lots of character with unique features than an ultra-modern hotel with no character that could be found in any city. In fact, I spent a little bit of time during the trip just wandering around the hotel looking around each floor. Not sure why a couple of people said the décor was dated as the building only opened as a hotel in 2007 so all the fittings and furnishings are modern.
Overall, I would definitely stay in this hotel again and recommend it to others, it was a lovely experience.

I initially chose the Hilton as I was running the marathon and wanted to be close to the start at the Olympic Stadium. We found out it was also easy to get the tram into the centre and to the museums as well as great restaurants within walking distance. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we all enjoyed the fabulous breakfasts. Definitely recommend

One of the best hotels we have stayed in. We will be going back next year. Really enjoyed the food and spa facilities. Room exceeded our expectations for the price range and would consider upgrading next time for added benefits
