“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Just got back from Amsterdam, staying at the hotel vijaya for 2 nights.

Smooth check in, and our room was ready. We had to walk through a courtyard which was the smoking area to get to our room. And the staircase was the steepest I've ever seen! The room smelt of bleach which was a good sign, and the bedding was fresh and clean.

Our radiator wasn't working when we came in on the first night, and it was freezing. Reported it to reception the next day and as they couldn't repair it straight away, they moved us to a different room.

Breakfast was good. With different breads, meats, cheese, cereal, coffee and juice.

This is a hotel in a great location. A couple of streets away from Damrak and Centraal Station and one street away from the main strip of the red light district.

Overall, a good place to stay. It needs a lick of paint all over the hotel, but you get what you pay for. A clean, central place to lay your head, with breakfast thrown in.

Great location. Hotel is within the red light district, one street removed from the main street. Room was clean enough though not sparkling. Breakfast was included and consisted of eggs, meat, cheese, bread, cereal, juice, and coffee. Front desk made everyone turn in the room key before leaving the hotel which was strange. They said that since their front desk was staffed all hours of the day they would just buzz us in to the hotel and give us our room key each time we came back. Internet access was non-existent in the room. We had to sit in the stairwell or go downstairs to the checkin area to get a signal. I was able to get internet access outside the hotel as well which was nice even after we checked out. They allowed us to keep our bags there even after checkout which was a nice option but we didn't. Room for 5 had three twin beds and a twin bunk bed. Room was non-smoking with signs stating there was a fine for smoking in the room so it didn't smell like smoke like some other rooms in Amsterdam do.

When we arrived at Amsterdam airport we got the 4Euro train to Central station and had about a 15 minute walk to the hotel. Great central location, clean and tidy rooms (rooms were cleaned daily with new bedding & towels) Rooms were really small but that was fine for us. Even though we were next door to a bar myself and my 2 friends had no problem sleeping and were amazed at how quiet it was (you may want to bring ear plugs just incase) The breakfast wasnt great but edible! we only ate at the hotel once and breakfast is between 7am-10am and is very basic - bread (not toast), boiled eggs, ham, cheese and juice. It was a great break and i would definately recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 29 and it was fine, apparently the attick rooms are the best rooms to get.
