From the photos I saw on the Internet when I booked this hotel, it looked like a charming old hotel situated on an idyllic little canal that had been stylishly renovated. Not the case. In actuality, it is located across from the train station (taxis won't drive you, you will have to walk all your luggage from the station to the hotel). The area surrounding the hotel is swarming with crowds of people, tacky tourist shops, and junky food joints. It's rough. For those Americans reading this, the atmosphere at the Park Plaza Victoria isn't old European charm, it's spring break at the Daytona Beach Econolodge. My room was so dirty, I had to call the front desk to complain, but not until after I took photos of it - see the photos I've posted. Highlights include a filthy sink with hairs in it and dirty carpet. The lighting in the rooms is so dim that I can't help but wonder if it's by design: to hide the filth. The hotel offered another room. I've posted photos of that one, too. The "clean" room featured dirty, stained carpet and hadn't been dusted in months. For an idea of the overall cleanliness of the hotel, I have posted a photo of the hotel ice machine. I think that photo pretty much sums it up. If I could give the Park Plaza Amsterdam a negative 5 score, I would. Save yourself the experience and waste of money and stay away from this hotel.
