We had a short stay in Amsterdam so our requirement were that it be nice and clean, and a good location. This hotel met that perfectly!
The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Central Station and very easy to find. Look for the Victoria Hotel sign and walk up the road (Damrak) that is along the left side of the hotel. The entrance is tiny, only as wide as the door, but easy to find if you keep your eyes open.
Our room was on the 1st floor (2nd for Americans) and there are stairs or a small lift.
The room (the handbag themed room) was well laid out and comfortable. The shower and sink were in one room, but with plenty of room to shower and keep the other half dry. It was clean and well maintained, and the towels were nicer than in some US hotels. The toilet was in a separate room, and had a window to outside (frosted glass though). Our beds were comfortable and the blackout shade worked well as our room faced the street. There were plenty of outlets and lights, and a rack with plenty of hangers for our clothes. There is a safe in the room, and a desk, and a regular hairdryer (not a wimpy wall mounted one). The TV had a clock built into the bottom of it, which is nice.
The hotel is a short walk to Dam Square as well.
It is a lively area, a bit loud late at night, but we knew that and so no complaints at all. The vending machine does sell ear plugs, along with beer, wine, etc.
