Near the park and street car line. Nice breakfast. Book a room at the back if you want less street noise. Will return.

We were more than happy with this hotel, set away from the hussle and bustle of the centre, which is easily accessible using the nearby tram stop. The room smallish but perfectly adequate with a large bed and the infamous glass frosted bathroom doors. There is a fridge and a safe in the room as well as a coffee machine. The only critism I would say is that there is one mirror in the bathroom and the lighting is not so bright. Our room was located in one of the buildings next to main reception on the third floor, facing the road. A little noisy with the trams going past, however we did not feel this adversly affected our stay. The room was bright and airy. Vondelpark is lovely and well worth a walk around. I would imagine it is stunning in the spring/summer. All in all, ourselves and the other couple who travelled with us were more than happy with the accommodation and the staff who were friendly and approachable. We would definately prefer to come back but i would ask for a room facing away from the road next time. We also loved that being a little out of the way, on travelling towards the centre, we could hop on and off the tram visiting less busy entertainment areas than the main hub which we could well have missed had we opted for a central hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Vondelpark

This was our first trip to Amsterdam and the hotel made the trip perfect. Close to everything but in a quite area...plus ultra close to public transport, great international food, & good bars in area/hotel. The hotel was fun and funky...and a clear bathroom (shower to toilet...clear). I would stay in the same hotel again and will try to every time I am in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Street parking was readily available and public transportation was great and close. So park the car...

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 !!
