I stayed for 3 nights in August. I was in a room with 4 friends and another 5 friends were in another room. The rooms are basic! First point was that despite saying rooms would be ready at 12pm one of our rooms was not ready until 3pm and then it still didn't have towels and hadn't stocked up tissues,... More

Not sure what other guests experienced based on their reviews but my stay was fantastic. Double bed, clean sheets, covers etc. My toilet and shower which was a separate locked room only for my use was clean and worked well despite being slightly small. TV had 15 channels not 3 like another guest had? Breakfast was fine, I don't eat... More

I stayed at Hotel Vijaya five nights. when I checked in, The staff was so rude. He didn't want say welcome. Then when I was going to my room, I got my first problem, the very steep stairway. In the room, I seemed to have gone back to 30s. Facilities in the room were so rotten. Though it had a... More

Stayed 2 nights early July. Room rate was less than eighty $US/night, so you get what you pay for. Just the facts: Saw two mice, in the hallway and lobby, during my stay. I was required to leave my room key at front desk when not in room. Room was the size of a walk-in closet, the width of the... More

If you're looking to see the sights, this is definitely a place to consider staying. It's location (a 5 minute walk from the station) means you're in the center of everything! Rooms were nice, didn't try breakfast but the staff were very helpful

Anyone who is leaving bad reviews for this place must of stayed somewhere else! Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was small but tidy. Fresh towels daily. The bathroom as most have been complaining about is just a wet room! Not an issue... More

This hotel is at a very nice location . View from the room window is excellent and you can spent the time sitting near your small window . Rooms are very small as well as toilet is to use once for one person only . You must reach to room for night only and I think in Amsterdam if you... More

Travelled in June 2014, as a group of five friends. First I want to say few words about location, which is really great. From Amsterdam's central train station, which is most popular way to reach the city centre from the airport, you'll have approximately 10 minutes walk, and that's really great even if you have some heavy bags with you....

Stayed here and the location is perfect for a lads stag do break away. In the middle of the canal ring with plenty to do in walking distance. The bar next door was great for a drink in the sun. Breakfast was basic but filled a hole.
