Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam
Ranked #130 of 371 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Formerly known as the Victoria Hotel, this hotel stands right across from Centraal Station in the heart of Amsterdam. The building is a historic building, which also means it is a bit dated. They have two distinct styles of rooms, the regular and the urban. I prefer the urban rooms with their modern, decor, red accents, dark furniture and fresh feel, despite the smaller space. By contrast, the regular rooms are larger, with dated furniture, creaking floor boards and a more traditional look.

Service at the hotel is average, probably because they are always busy. So if you are looking for personal attention, this place is not for you.

A big plus staying at this hotel is the free high speed wifi. For some reason, you have to “buy” high speed internet from your room and then they take it off your bill at checkout. I find this to be odd and bothersome. During one of my stays here, they forgot to take off the internet from the bill, and I had to call to get it adjusted.

There is a nice swimming pool that guests can use, but access to sauna or fitness center costs extra.

Finally, room service is rather expensive. But this is the case in most hotels in Amsterdam. I ordered a meal that cost €23 at retail price, but they added room charge of €7.50 and another €6.00 in service fee. Before I knew it, my bill was €36.

Dear Flaljee,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at the hotel and for sharing the readers of TripAadvisor some of your images. I am delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay with us.
My sincere apology if the Room Service charge was more expensive as expected. We do charge a €6 service fee, but I cannot explain the €7.50 charge. If you can forward me some more details, we would be able to check the reason of this charge and possible to give you a refund. I am looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

we stayed here for my husbands 40th birthday , fabulous hotel right opposite the central train station,we nfelt safe being out and around the hotel during the evening too as its lit up beautifully. We stayed on a bed and breakfast status and the food was first class, they had everything you wanted and the food looked fresh and plentyfull. The hotel has a lovely spa facility too which we used one evening. Pool, steam room , sauna, etc.
We were advised by the hotel where to go and how to get better deals for some of the trips we went on. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of going.

Room Tip: high floor overlooking the station and the bridges.

Perfect hotel for a short break in Amsterdam. We stayed in the new wing of the hotel with a spacious modern room. Connecting doors allowed us to keep an eye on the kids. All comfort available in the room and the nice bathroom.

Of course the kids loved the indoor swimming pool.

Personnel is very attentive and provides you with all the service you like.

Breakfast gave everything you could think off. The price goes hand-in-hand with the choice. € 25,- pp for it is at the high end of the spectrum.

Ideally located for sightseeing if you don’t mind the special ambiance in the streets behind the hotel.

Room Tip: don't book breakfast for the kids upfront. Small kids are free

I stayed at the Victoria Park Plaza for one night with a friend. As other people have posted it is in an excellent location - close to Central Station and the main tourist attractions but not in a particularly picturesque part of Amsterdam. We upgraded to an urban room, which was modern and clean, with very comfortable beds. Would recommend for a break on a budget.

Room Tip: Rooms in the urban annex are modern and comfortable.

We stayed here for three night in February, The place was great when we booked on travelrepublic we paid for a double room but when we arived we were in an executive room which was brilliant a large room with everything you needed, Breakfast was great buffet style with a large choise from hot or cold with youre eggs cooked on order, not a rubber one under a heat light.
Staff were helpfull.
The perfect location for looking around, The train staition is just across the road and your on the main street that heads down to Dam square with everything close,
The trams are easy to use just buy a ticket at the staition then just hop on and off as you please, The best way to get around.

The hotel was great, our room was a little tired although spotless. I understand the urban wing is updated. Lots of building works going on outside so bring ear plugs.

This hotel was fantastic. The appearance, food, location was perfect. I'd particularly like to thank the concierges, they were a great source for information about the local area and can even provide you with discounts to local attractions, so its definetly worth seeing them if you are contemplating doing some sight seeing etc.
The food was goooooooooorgeous. I would have licked my plate clean if there was no-one around! The reception team were a little slow as it took me a while to check in and out, but thats not a biggy for me! I'd definetly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay centrally in Amsterdam and within walking distance to the main local attractions.
