I've used the Victoria since the 1970's.
When I stayed there last there were mice running around my bedroom. I have not been back for a while but last month I decided to try it again.
I wish I hadn't. OK, the bedroom was mouse free.
In the bar near reception there were 2 mice running around picking up bits of food that had been dropped on the floor.
They were not concerned about the customers in the bar so I can only assume that they had been there a time.
The hotel manager, Jan Willem Roenhorst was apologetic when I complained about mice running around in an area that serves food but by his attitude it was obvious that he was aware of the problem.
This is a huge shame, the hotel has always been one of my favourites, it is well situated for the city and public transport and the staff are excellent.
My advice, if you decide to stay there take your own cat.
Alternatively, if you want to share your stay in Amsterdam with animals running around you then consider sleeping at Artis Zoo.
