Park Plaza Vondelpark, Amsterdam
Ranked #158 of 374 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Park Plaza Vondelpark sits on the edge of the lovely Vondelpark in a quiet, well-to-do neighbourhood of Amsterdam. A short walk brings you to a few local restaurants (on the Amstelveenseweg to the west or toward the Museum quarter to the east); just a few steps steps from the hotel is the stop for Tram 2 and easy access to anywhere in the centre.

We paid about £120 per night, including breakfast and tax. Our room was very small and the bathroom even more so. There are some small repairs needed to the bedside lamp and the shower but everything worked. The spread of too-hot, too-heavy duvets has infected this hotel and, as at nearly all hotels, the request to hang up towels that don't need to be changed is resolutely ignored by staff and they are changed every day.

Breakfast is varied and generous and served in an inviting, light-filled room. Most mornings, you'll be able to see a coach waiting for one of the package tours of well-heeled travellers that the hotel attracts.

Staff are friendly and helpful and the bar convivial. The also have bicycles available to hire -- 15 Euros for 24 hours, about the same as at one of the bike hire places.

First of all, I don't know why people would spend more than $100 a night for a hotel on vacation (if you are spending a lot of time in your hotel on vacation it must be a pretty lame vacation) so I thought this hotel was great for the price. I personally liked the location because it was away from the creepy people the red light district area attracts at night, and it was by the beautiful Vondelpark (the hotel rented us bikes and we had an amazing ride in the park one morning).

The room was very nice (the nicest on any of our trips outside the US), clean, comfortable, flat screen TV, etc. One night my fiance and I ordered room service and it was very good! I did not have any trouble connecting to WiFi. The bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly. I don't know why so many people seem to care that there are two separate buildings I had no need to visit the guests in another building. The girl who checked us in even rolled my bag to the elevator in the other building (the front desk is not any farther away in a different building than it would be in a big hotel).

Though it is far away from the city center that really doesn't matter because it literally around the corner from a trolly stop (make sure you take the #2 bus!) That is what I expected in order to pay less for a hotel room which is just a place to sleep (and this place was very nice)! The trolly comes about every 10 minutes and stops by all the things you want to see in Amsterdam.

I don't care to pay for a 5 star hotel because I don't see the point as I travel for vacations and not business. Overall if you want a nice hotel but do not want to throw away money, you should stay at the Vondelpark Plaza in Amsterdam.

Lovely hotel - immaculate. Great location - on the No 2 tram route so easy to get home when you're tired after a long day's shopping. Comfortable bar to unwind in and the staff were all very friendly.

Only problem was that it seemed to be very popular with hen parties at weekends and coach trips during the week. Noisy, inconsiderate guests (whether drunk at 3am or getting up to go out sightseeing at 6am) may not be something that the staff can do much about.

This hotel is nicely located. It's right next to the Vondel park and the city centre is not far away. We walked all the time.
Our room 232 - very soft bed, quite tiny room. There is a glass bathroom and toilet in the room, so it feels strange. Next door were some noisy girls and you can really hear every word.
We didn't pay for breakfast cause it's expensive at the hotel. This room was situated to the street - it's not busy street but you could hear some noise made by public transport.

Room Tip: Take the room with the park view.

Recently refurbished boutique style hotel located by the Vondelpark. The room was nice, if a little small but it did make good use of the available space. Location is good as long as you don't mind not being in the city centre - the vondelpark is great just to wander around, although be careful of the bikes! Food was nice although ordering room service was tricky as there were no menus! Also, could not alter the room temperature for love nor money - it seemed to be missing a remote control. Overall good with some minor annoyances.
