"not as bad as expected" Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam Tip by Maidstoneman
Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam, Amsterdam: 2,616 reviews and 28 photos
Having read the reviews we decided it might be safer to book an executive room and found a good deal through venere.com. We had room 402 which is in the corner of the building at the front. It had three round windows - rather high up - which was like being on a cruise ship! The front of the hotel was covered in scaffolding so we didnt get a view at all, but as we were paying a reduced rate we didnt mind. The room was large and very comfortable although light sleepers would probably have found it very noisy. We never travel without ear plugs! The bathroom was small but adequate.
The hotel seems to be under new ownership as everything around had `Park Plaza` on it. This may account for earlier less than favourbale reviews.
We arrived before 2pm and our room wasn`t ready. No problem. They stored the cases for us and we went our for a meal. The reception staff were very friendly. The concierge was helpful and we enjoyed our stay.
OK, there were some little niggles.
The hairdryer hose was ripped - but it worked sufficiently not to complain.
We were woken at 0830 by the chambermaid wanting to replenish the minibar.
There was a very small amount of mould in the bathroom.
They add breakfast to the bill as a matter of course (but quickly remove it when you check out if you havent taken it).
I agree with other reviewers that it is not quite a 4-star standard hotel but it is absolutely fine. Nothing about it would stop us returning.
