Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam
Ranked #120 of 373 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 13 June 2014

If you're after a reasonable hotel 5 minutes walk from Central Station and the centre of Amsterdam then this is a good choice. The rooms are comfortable, the shower works well and there are plenty of TV channels in each language; so all the key points are covered. They also offer free Wi-fi which is good, although the speed is fairly poor, so anything more than checking facebook and your emails is going to be frustrating. (They have assured me that they're updating their provider).

The staff are fine, but their attention seems to be inconsistent; sometimes you'll get a warm welcome, other times they'll walk past without an acknowledgement. Their reception staff are efficient but not very friendly.

NOTE: There seems to be two parts to this hotel, the old part and the new part. The fancy sleek photos you can see in the reviews are clearly in the new part, which was somewhere other than my room. My room had a floor that sloped, curtains that seemed as if they'd fall off if you did anything outrageous (like close them) and the old, worn-out carpet had iron burns on it.

However, all these things considered, great location, charming building and reasonably good value. I'd use it again but I'd look around carefully first.

Breakfast was your typical buffet, which was ok but, in my opinion, could have had a wider range; note to chef: melon is not the only fruit.

Room Tip: Talk to the hotel first and ask them if you have a new or an old room.

The location of this hotel is excellent. Right at the central station, in the heart of Amsterdam.
There is no parking at the hotel, but we used the valet parking, which cost 55 € for 3 days, that we found reasonable.
Our room had a very old feel to it. The bed was good and clean, but the bathroom was worn with age, which didn't give a super clean impression, and the carpet in the room was also outdated and stained. All though it was said to be a junior suite, it didn't feel like anything special.
Breakfast was good and plentiful.
Staff, at the desk as well as the concierges, were very friendly and professional.
We also brought our bicycles, but there was no room to keep them at the hotel. So after the concierge told us, that nice bikes have a 55% if getting stolen, we left them at a bicycle parking 100m down the street, which was cheap (1,5 € a day), but they already closed at 18 o'clock. So we didn't have our bikes in the evening.
So overall we did enjoy our stay, but we will probably prefer to try another hotel next time.

The Victoria looks impressive from Central Station, the train station we came in on, but staying there is not advised... EVER.

We were a group of 7 ladies traveling together with reservations for 4 rooms. Upon arrival they had no available rooms, but told us "we would have rooms and be taken care of". We sat in the lobby for 45 minutes, then they asked for everyone's travel documents again. (A 4 page packet with our flight, hotel and tour info for the whole 8 day trip across Amsterdam, Madrid and Barcelona). I didn't give mine since mine and my aunt's had the same info. I'm glad I didn't because we never got them back in full. The staff apparently misplaced all of the documents we'd given them within a 10 minute period. Actually, it looked like they just ripped off the last page of the stapled packet (the paper with the info they cared about) and threw away the others.

After about 20 minutes more someone came and said our rooms are being cleaned, but if we would like to leave our luggage they would keep them safe while we went about exploring the city. We got the impression several of the staff lived at the hotel and we were being given their rooms. We decided to do that since we were all getting sleepy sitting there. They took our luggage and put it in a handicapped bathroom "no one uses" according to the bellhop.

When we finally got into our room we were exhausted. The rooms were clean, but everything smelled like sewer. We had a room facing the river and the main street so traffic noise was very problematic. It was a clean bed and hot shower, but overall, I would not recommend the Victoria.

I had the opportunity to get a large room in the urban wing, the room were very modern and had a very good sound isolation. I truly recommend this hotel.

room quality, staff and location makes this to one my favourite hotels if I comes back in business to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: floor 6 urban wing

Very close to (almost) every attraction in the city. A little bit pricy, as one may guess. Friendly and helpful staff. Gulja from Azerbaijan is a good example to this. (She speaks perfect Turkish). Concierge may have behaved a little bit arrogant, I do not know why. However, it is not a big deal. Rooms are large enough, beds are comfy. For those who may be concerned, bacon was perfect in the breakfast :)

Point to be improved: There are no precautions (handle and / or a mat) in the bathroom / shower cabin to avoid slipping and falling.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at one certain wing, which can be accessed via two elevators. Even though you may ge...

Stayed for 5 nights in Amsterdam Victoria Plaza on Damark Street.
Everything was the way it should be and with great service.
You can sit on the bar and order food from the hotel resturant to the bar, the hotel team is very kind and cooperative to less common requests as well.

Room service is open 24 hours and the hotel allowed to open the GYM and swiming pool after-hours to use it in the night for my convinence*, thats great!

*Could be that is was possible only due to off-season dates when there are less residents staying so check before if you consider this option.

The bar is good with friendly bartenders check it out!

Overall a 4 to a great hotel at a perfect location with a decent price.
Could have been an easy 5 - Had 3 subjects i encountered there:
1. There were 2 days i had the "Please clean" sign on the doorknob and the room was not cleaned but throught the other days the room was cleaned every day.
2. Hotel Breakfast is expensive 24 euro if im not mistaken, ate outside at the recommended Greenwood Cafe on Singel street every morning, very nice place.
3. Sea Bass dish at the hotel resturant has shrimps in it and its missing from the menu so fyi if you are religious.

Enjoyed my stay and will consider staying here a second time once i am back in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 5th floor at the Urban Wing(Newer renovated side) if possible this is the quitest,
