Stay here if you want to party but not if you are a light sleeper. The soundproofing is very bad and you can always hear neighbors coming in and out of their rooms (Amsterdam is a party area), audible chatting and walking.
Location wise is perfect for taking trains and trams.
Not recommended for business if you need a good and quiet sleep. Hotel service is fantastic and they try to move you to quiet area but unfortunately, neighbors cannot be chosen.

Thank you for your recent stay at DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station! We are delighted to see that our location was suiting you so well. I regret to read that you faced some noise disturbance. My sincerest apologies for this inconvenience. All our rooms are isolated according to the strictest norms in sound proofing and we are continuously investigating what extra measures can be taken in order to improve the isolation. However, I can understand that it must have been terribly disappointing to, despite these measures, be disturbed by the noise. Once again my sincerest apologies for this inconvenience. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to our hotel in the near future as we would love to make it right with you.
