“Location and Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Location and quality justify staying here. The hotel is located a block from the central train station, which is just a short train ride from Schiphol Airport. I dropped my bags in my room and took a bus to the Rijksmuseum. The next morning, I caught my flight by walking to the train station for the quick ride back to the airport. For this short stay, the Park Plaza Victorian was ideal.

The room was sleek and modern; the hotel was spotless. The reception desk staff was efficient and pleasant. This was a great choice for my needs, although for a longer stay, I might prefer to be closer to the museum district.

Best location, near central station, heart of red light area & shopping.
People are always charming, nice service. Hotels in this area are either very poor (not equipped) or elegant as this one.
Just don't miss the gate as I did, its written Victoria over it.
Enjoy ur stay

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This hotel is very centrally located directly opposite the train station. The beds had memory foam toppers and were comfortable to sleep on. The room was on the small side and ours overlooked a grotty back ally and was extremely dark with poor lighting. The bathroom was adequate, although I would have liked a bath as well. The water pressure was very poor and getting shampoo out of your hair is a challenge. The toiletries were replenished daily and we had clean towels, although they were far to small to wrap around an average sized person.
With the exception of the employee who signed us in for breakfast daily, who was friendly and delightful, the service was poor. The cleaning was also of a low standard, thick dust under the beds, toilets not cleaned properly, including on arrival. Long queues to check-in and out of the hotel and the concierge was usually no where to be seen. The restaurant dinner was mediocre and there are better places to eat.
I stayed at the sister hotel in London earlier this year and this was marginally better. This hotel is extremely busy so I guess they don't need to try to hard!

Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam is everything you'd expect in a luxury hotel, but the prices are much more reasonable. When we returned from our trip, we both signed up for Club Carlson to earn points. We have made this our hotel of choice in Amsterdam. Its right across from Centraal Station and is convenient to all the popular sites.

Stayed with my wife and kids, very family friendly. Great location, although closeness to the train station meant taxi drivers were unwilling to take us!
Kids enjoyed the pool facilities and the staff were excellent at recommending places to dine out.
Location meant it was very handy for the tourist attractions we wanted to visit.
Would definitely visit again if we get the chance.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights September 2013. I had requested a high floor with a view when I booked the room and was given the top floor upon check in. Room was clean and had a kettle for tea or coffee which is a big plus for me. The hotel is across from the train station and trams yet far enough as to not hear noise . The room was very quiet. Staff were wonderful and helpful. My only negative for this hotel is the restaurant. I ate 2 meals there and service was bad both times. Food could have been much better for the price. Go elsewhere to eat is my advice. I would recommend this hotel for it's location.

Room Tip: request what you want when booking
