“Fab weekend”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Just returned from a 2 night/3 day break at this hotel. We were a bit concerned after so many different conflicting reviews, however we are glad we booked this hotel. Ideally situated for all public transport (which was excellent) and very frequent and value for money. The hotel itself was fab, all the staff were very helpful, breakfast was delicious and catered for everyone's desire's, we had an executive room on the 4th floor 409 over looking the canal and Central station, we found the room very large, clean and with an enormous comfortable bed. Would recommend this to anyone

The hotel is perfectly situated just in front of the amsterdam central station. The entrance is just what you expect clean and efficient - the front desk people were efficient and friendly - the room was clean, spacious and well designed. The breakfast was international with hot and cold + beverage (automatic machine but very good results)
If I have to find something wrong I will point out the price for the minibar (i.e 6,5 euro for a bottle of water)

We chose the hotel due to its proximity to the Centraal Station. It was our first time in the city, so we did not want to drag our suitcase too far. The hotel is just over 100m from the main exit of the station. Its location is also perfect for the trams, buses and canal cruises; they are just across the road.

We stayed in the older part, rather than the minimalist "urban" wing.

The hotel consists of 2 parts. The oldest I assume was built in the late 19th Century and the other during the 1970/80's. Each part has its own distinct flavour.
The reception area and breakfast restaurant are from the modern era. Whereas the main restaurant is themed for the older era.

Sadly I started off by being a guest that reception staff find hard to cope with; polite, logical but virtually find fault as soon as they arrive. Our receptionist was friendly and efficient, but probably thought "what were we going to find next". We booked a "Superior" room via an online agent. When we checked in and got to our room it was far from our definition of "Superior". Smallish, dark and overlooking a brick wall. When I telephoned reception I discovered from them that "their Superior" equals Standard in normal terms. I was then offered an upgrade at the bargain rate of E20 (normally E30) to a Executive room (nb. in some other European countries I have come across the tactic of being given a small room as a ruse to get guests to upgrade). Anyway, our upgrade room 427 was all but perfect apart from the guest safe not being anchored, you could lift it up and take it away.
So I called reception and was offered another Executive room on the third floor, directly below 427. I was allowed to check this other room, but discovered that it was 2/3 the size of room 427 and the room smelt of drains. On returning to reception it was agreed we stayed in 427, but maintenance would fix the safe the next day. The hotel kept their word.

Our air conditioned room had a king sized bed, writing desk, chest of draws and a large wardrobe. I would say our room was more of a junior suite as it also had a couch and 2 armchairs. The room had double glazed windows which were efficient enough to keep out most road noise, but once opened you discovered how noisy the outside environment was. We slept well each night.

Breakfast - the hotel provided an excellent buffet breakfast. This ranged from items from what I would call an "English Breakfast", to cold meat platters and smoked salmon. There was everything to give you a good start for the day.

Evening meal - the food was of a good quality, but I would recommend only eating there once. The food presentation tended to be "samey". We eat in the restaurant twice. For the first meal I had guinea fowl, served on a bed of mixed vegetables with a sweet / savoury jus garnished with crispy root vegetables. For the second meal I had a sirloin steak with fries and mushrooms with a sweet / savoury jus garnished with crispy root vegetables. Both dishes tasted similar. For the week we stayed the restaurant did not change its menu, neither did it offer a special dish for the day.

We had a good stay and would definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th or 5th floor. Due to road noise and the possibility of the scent of drains...

Just returned from 3 nights at this lovely hotel. Well worth the money. Staff are very friendly, could not do enough for us. We had no issues changing our room also, as the first room had alot of noise coming in from the street. Hotel is directly in front of Central station and most of the tram lines are also here, again perfect for getting around. Breakfast each morning was lovely also. 100% would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room!

My wife and I stayed at the Park Plaza Victoria, when we visited Amsterdam last weekend. Firstly, the location was ideal, it really is just outside the Amsterdam Centraal train station.
Inside the hotel, it was immaculate. Lobby and lounges were beautiful, reception staff and concierge were very helpful.
We had a spacious room, with all facilities we could want. Only slight negative was the lack of view from the window, but with a building of that shape, we had to accept that.

Without doubt we would stay there again (the breakfast was fantastic too!) and would recommend this hotel to other travellers

We have just come back from a dutch dash on the ferries, this being my 4th visit. Every time I have been I always stop here for lunch and a few drinks to start the experience off!! The atmosphere is fab, the food is gorgeous and the staff cannot be any more pleasant or helpful with telling us where things are etc around Amsterdam. We will see you again and next time will hopefully stay over a night :) WOULD DEF RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!
