“Horrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We have booked a superior room in this hotel, but on our arrival we were offered a horrible, dirty and extremely shabby room with a twin bed, even though we have asked for one big have bed when booking. I have never seen such an ugly room before, especially having in mind that this is a 4 stars hotel. In fact, we have chosen this hotel, even if it was quite distant from the city center for this reason.
When we complained at the reception, they have offered another room as a favor for us. But we have actually booked a superior room!!!
The second room was more similar to the room we saw when booking (the receptionist said they often show only the pictures of their best rooms!!!! Can you imagine that?), it was quite stylish, very big, but also a bit shabby and the carpet was dirty. Moreover, a sink was in the room and a toilet was an opened glass cube, so you could hear and smell everything. It was really embarrassing! Furthermore, after a few showers the carpet got completely wet, so we could not walk bear foot in our room! In addition, despite the fact that we stayed there for 3 nights, the room has never been cleaned, they only changed the towels every day.
It was a very very unpleasant experience and, of course, we will never stay at Park Plaza again.

If you want to spend time in Amsterdam and experience the charm of this beautiful city, poring over its full life and a measured about this to be close to the city center - you are here! Wonderful, charming, comfortable, quiet hotel near the park has very to rest and work, if necessary. This place I left a very positive recollections forever.

Beautiful new and modern hotel, great helpful staff and really really close to central station. Breakfast was nice, room super modern with excellent lighting modes, 24Hour pool access a bonus. Interesting art gallery in basement and a beautiful smoking lounge (for tobacco)

generally speaking room was so poor, not that much cleaned, bathroom was old and malfunctioning, no way to have some privacy inside the bathroom, no mirrors in the right place both for shaving and make up quite noisy room, breakfast was too expensive for what they served.

I don't agree with reviews that say that the city center can be reached by only 5 minutes by tram: the hotel is 20 minutes from downtown! Apart from this, good location and very good hotel: the presence of stairs at the entry and for reaching the restaurant (which serves also the breakfast) is absolutely not comfortable when moving wheelchairs.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are very large, and perfect for accommodating a cot (which is free)

Having stayed at many different hotels in Amsterdam, this is definitely my favourite. I had requested a specific room I had stayed in previously and the hotel thankfully obliged. There was a nice unexpected welcome gift & hand written letter on arrival at the room - very nice touch. Very helpful staff, fantastic location, highly recommended!

Loved this hotel & its location. Only 5 minutes on the tram to the centre of Amsterdam, lovely area, really quiet and lovely houses all round! Rooms were comfortable only issue was the sink wasn't in the bathroom but in the main room which was a bit awkward. Would recommend and definitely stay in this area when returning to Amsterdam!
