“In a nice area of Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We spent sometime searching Trip Advisor for a suitable hotel for a 2 night stay in Amsterdam with our two friends who were joining us in The Netherlands. We have previously stayed in the NH Amsterdam City Centre Hotel but were put off by the inflatted price they were asking for, for this weekend (This particular weekend is the Amsterdam Dance Event which could be the cause for inflated prices around the city).

We found the hotel to be resonable price so decided to go with this. The city and specifically Dam Square is within a 5 minute tram journey. There is a tram stop some 300 yeards down the road which is superb for getting around the city and to and from Central Station. Very quiet and nice area of Amsterdam, away from the hussle of the red light district and any bars.

The hotel itself is modern, clean and perfect for a city break. The rooms though small, were all we really needed as a couple. For anyone with a wheelchair or pushchair it maybe a little swkward. One thing to note is the toilet/shower is actually in the room with a glass partition seperating a wet room off from the remainder of the bedroom. Our room has a flat screen Samsung TV with a selection of British, Dutch and German TV channels.

There is a nice bar area downstairs which was ideal for a quick drink before heading out into the city. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a budget hotel away from the city centre but within a short tram journey. Staff we're all friendly and helpful, enjoyed our stay and would certainly go back.

Whoever builds a hotel that has several steps to the door is crazy.. not a good start. If you have mobility issues you may want to look elsewhere.

The rooms are OK sized, with a great shower. The basin was set in a wooden cabinet which probably looked great when it was installed, but this IS a hotel, wear and tear will make it easy for water damage to spoil it. Oh, and us guys who shave? we DO tend to need mirrors.

The white paintwork is looking a little tired as are the carpets.

Breakfast was the usual 'mainland Europe' fair, with plenty of bread, cheese, meat, fruit etc and perfectly OK. The bar on the other hand was a little frustrating. It looks good however many of the seats are very uncomfortable so not a place to linger and chat unless you can sit at the bar. It often took a while to get served.

There is no restaraunt at this hotel. Unless you get a cab or a tram the nearest restaraunts are 10 minutes walk away.

The tram stop is 2 minutes walk from the hotel and is on a line to Centraal Station which passes through central Amsterdam.

The hotel offers meeting facilities (my reason for being there). Whilst the service was attentive during the booking process however the support offered to meeting delegates left a little to be desired. The projector supplied was not well maintained and meeting delegates had problems reading the projector screen.

In summary, an OK hotel if you want a weekend in Amsterdam and want somewhere quiet but still only 10 minutes from the heart of town but having visited many Park Plaza hotels it is not up to the standards I have experienced at other Park Plaza sites.

This is definitely not a 4 stars hotel.

They try hard with the design , to make it look hype and cool but the room we had was nothing but. Badly designed rooms and old carpet flooring.

The staff was not helpful at all when we realized that they have charged us more than we agreed for our booking.

The only positive about this hotel is the location , next to vondelpark.

Apart form that you are better off to a 3 or even 2 star hotel !!

My wife and I stayed at the Park Plaza (Museum Quarter) for 3 nights. After taking an overnight 11 hour flight from LA to Amsterdam, the hotel staff graciously accomodated us by allowing us to check in early. It is a 15 min tram ride from Central Station. Our room was in the second building (there are multiple buildings that make up the hotel) which required us to haul our bags down a long flight of stairs (this was a draw back - no elevator or ramp to get down to the lower level) to get to our building. Once there, the room was for the most part very good and we had a room with a king bed which was spacious.

Our room had a nice size shower/toilet area but it wasn't in a separate room - it was a frosted glass walled off area - open at the top. For the most part this was fine with the exception of some lack of privacy when using that area.

A real positive was how quiet the room was even with the windows open. It made for wonderful sleeping. The hotel had a nice bar area which was great for late afternoon/early evening drinks (good prices as well). The bar has a great patio area overlooking a quiet street. The hotel has wireless but the free version is pretty slow and requires logging on every time you shut your browser.

This hotel is Vondelpark-adjacent which was a real plus for using the park (which was very nice). At the hotel we were able to rent bikes which allowed us to roam around not only the park (visitors need to experience "rush hour" on the park pathways) but the old city. The hotel was also within walking distance (15-20 min) from all the main museums but not as convienent for getting to the old city by foot (tram or bike is much quicker).

The hotel neighborhood is a real plus. Lot's of local restaurants within a 10 minute walk which were very good.

Room Tip: Back room off of main street (Koninginnweg).

We raod tripped from Hertfordshire via Calais and Bruges into Amsterdam, arriving one Saturday evening with no reservations. There were no rooms in any inns in the town centre, so we drove randomly out of the city in the Vongels park direction. Fortuitously we stumpled upon this venue.
Admittedly we got a good "last minute" deal
Admittedly for the penthouse we paid less for the 4 of us than we would have done for the scummiest of hotels in the city centre.
But on the basis above - I would struggle to find fault.
I'll single out 5 things that were great:
1.tram stop maybe 50m up the road takes you right into the heart of Amsterdam (no.2?)
2.breakfast included and really very good
3.room facilities included great TV and excellent Nespresso coffee maker & unlimited pods
4.staff at reception and in the bar were faultless
5.very very friendly and very very comfortable
Certain areas of the hotel and out buildings could do with a lick of paint or upgradeing but we were really really happy with our find.

Room Tip: pop by on the off chance before being held to ransom by more central hotels - they will help you to...

Located near to the city center, executive room was huge, with a king size bed. Wired internet connection is free and fast. Buffet breakfast has a wide variety of hot and cold choices. The reception staff was really nice.

Spent 5 nights here during the IBC convention and found it to be a very nice, quiet place to stay. The location near the Vondelpark made it convenient for a morning jog, and with the No. 2 tram right there, it was easy to head up into the old city. There also are some quite good restaurants nestled in nearby neighborhoods, and Leidseplein is a reasonable walk away, if that's more your scene. Half of the bed (two twin beds pushed together) was pretty lumpy, but the other side was comfortable. The bathroom was bigger than many I've had in Amsterdam. Internet worked well with a laptop and ethernet connection, but was flaky over wi-fi with my smartphone.
