Cheap and good location
  • + Great location, about 10 min to main station by foot.

Grim
  • + Decent, central location Clean towels
  • Mouldy bathroom. Noisy guests. Knackered beds. Stunk of bleach. Shabby condition of room - chipped paint, holes in walls etc Dropped something which rolled under the bed. As soon as I put my hand under there, I decided I didn t want it back. Forced to hand in keys whenever you leave the hotel.
  • * my tip Unless you re on a stag break and just need somewhere to pass out, stay somewhere else.

great budget hotel in red light area.
  • + great price, great location, breakfast aint bad either.
  • loud part of the city so lots of noise outside but this is hardly the hotels fault. but fussy sleepers might want to invest in some earplugs.
  • * my tip go to snack king down the alley opposite the hotel and order yourself a chicken burger. it is the best use of 3 euros you will have in amsterdam.

  • (Travelling alone)
great budget hotel in red light area.
  • + great location, easy to get to everywhere. good price for single rooms with your own shower etc. 24 hour reception is good too. breakfast aint bad neither.
  • i had the single room where the shower is over the hall, its still only used by you but not as good as having it in the room, also the shower head wasnt in a fitting as the wall fitting was broken, not to bad though as its easy to hold the shower head and rest over the taps when you want to lather up.
  • * my tip go and buy a chicken burger from snack king down the alley opposite, only 3 euros.and tastes way better than mcdonalds.

  • (Travelling alone)
a fine hotel for the money in a great location.
  • + good location if you want to be in the middle of amsterdam red light area, and easy to travel to other places from it too. cheap price for comfy room with own bathroom/toilet. 24 hour reception so dont have to worry about carrying keys around.
  • quite a loud area due to location but this is hardly the hotels fault. trying to navigate your way to the room number is always a fun challenge, so not really a bad point afterall.
  • * my tip snack king over the road do amazing chicken burgers at 3 euros each. thats all i eat during my stay.
7.2
  • (Travelling alone)
Nice hotel for the price.
  • + Location. Clean linen. Ample hot water. Very good place to stay when on a budget.
  • Because the hotel has bars and coffee shops nearby, it is noisy till wee hours of the morning if you happen to have a room facing the street.

  • (Young couples)
Good location small room
  • + The location is quite good just a few minutes walk from the station Although in the red light area, it's quite safe, I walked in the evening and went back hotel safely. View is good facing canal.
  • The room is small. Toilet hard to sit down without turning your body. No lift and narrow aisle but generally easy to walk compare to some other hotels in Amsterdam with high and steep stairs.

  • It was VERY noisy so we didn't get much sleep. The spiral stairs are extremely steep so very difficult to carry large suitcases up them. No room to sit normally on toilet.

Not a great experience
  • + None
  • The hotel was very over priced for what it was, We ordered a 3 bed room and paid for a 3 bed room but only got a 2 bed room so our friend had to go elsewhere which wasn't impressive at all even though we still paid the 3 bed price
  • * my tip If your wanting a hotel in the middle of the red light area it's ok but if your wanting a quality hotel then look elsewhere

Good balance of economy and comforst to satisfy basic needs
  • + For a short visit in Amsterdam the location of this hotel is very good, because you can reach many sights by walking. It is not luxurious, but serves to fulfill the basic needs of bed, breakfast and friendly service.
  • The deep stairs could be a problem if you have a health problem!
6.2
  • (Other)
Mediocre; not friendly.
  • + Great, convenient location to Amsterdam Centraal; and for touring around. Nice breakfast. Clean.
  • This was my second visit. Very, very disappointed that wifi did not work in my room, nor did the TV. Staff seemed surprised wifi did not work in my room - like they didn't know before. Staff were not overly friendly, and certainly not thankful for my business. Likely will not go back. There are likely friendlier hotels in the city.
  • * my tip Inquire if your tv and wifi will work in your room. I was on an upper floor where staff told me that wifi would not likely work!! Too bad they don't explain that in their promotions.

You get what you pay for
  • + Great location a short walk from Centraal Station and right in the heart of the red light district. Good price.
  • Tiny room, free breakfast is off-site at a restraunt they own and I never found.
  • * my tip Just a place to crash really. Wouldn't recommend if you plan on spending a lot of time in your room.
7.6
  • (Travelling alone)
good hotel in red light area with private toilet/shower at good price.
  • + very good location for red light district. 24 hour reception. comfy bed, tv worked ok.
  • i had one of the few rooms where the shower/toilet is across the hall. not a terrible thing but i do like convenience, and this is abit of a pain.
  • * my tip treat yourself to a chicken burger from snack king just down the alley way opposite the hotel. they are amazing burgers.

Could be Perfect... But it's not.
  • + Location location location!!! friendly staff! good breakfast! Restaurant Vijaya was great. loved the food and the place and had a great promotion for people staying at the hotel. mattress was kinda on the soft-ish side but great rooms and private showers...
  • FLEAS, i was bitten all over the place. the rooms were poorly cleaned, you could see trash under the mat close to the door... there were always clean towels everyday and the WC was neatly cleaned... but that's as clean as it gets. internet was not working.
  • * my tip make sure your room gets cleaned... and ask for clean sheets.

GET AWAY FROM THE RLD!!!!
  • + The people that work there are nice, however they do not keep up with when you are in your room or not.
  • It is very run down, much like everything in the RLD. I would suggest to anybody going to amsterdam, stay outside of the RLD.
  • * my tip Basically, if you go to the RLD do not talk to anyone that looks like a street dealer. Shady black guys you should always stay away from, they will rob you...the same goes with the mafia type white guys. If anyone tries to talk to you or act friendly, they are a very BAD person. And if you do get robbed it will most likely be at knife point and the police will not doing anything about it, except maybe laugh at your misfortune. Horrible place, horrible people, horrible city.

A Hotel right in the center of everything.
  • + The Hotel is 5 minutes walke from the trainstation. Almost everything is in a walk-distance from the Hotel. It's cheap to stay at the hotel - so if you adjust your expectations it's a good hotel, taken the price in consideration.

good location, clean beds but too expensive
  • + very convenient and central location for Amsterdam city centre; many tourist attractions within easy walking distance of hotel; clean beds; hotel staffed 24hours;

Good budget hotel, Very centrally located.
  • + Very central hotel, basic but clean room, with private shower and WC. There is a good bar (Trinity bar) below the hotel. A good sized breakfast room and a decent continental breakfast.
  • Steep stairs as all hotels here have. A little noisy at night, but to be expected for the area.

  • (Friends)
Great Red Light District hotel for groups on a budget
  • + This hotel is in a great location at the very edge of the red light district. A bar next door with outdoor seating, a relatively quiet street makes this a great meeting point for groups staying at the hotel.
  • Small rooms, very very basic (but clean). Breakfast is only served for a few hours, we missed this opportunity every day. Breakfast is not full English!

  • noisy neighbourhood in the night between 2 pm - 2 am every night, because many "coffee shops" and pubs around, this hotel is not suitable for the disabled (no lift, steps also to the entrance)

Fine for lad's holiday, wouldn't stop there with the misses
  • + Hotel is cheap and very close to all the coffee shops, bars and night life
  • None smoking room, beds were a bit poor and the window had an inch gap between it and the cill so there was a draft, quite noisy location but we had 5 man room for a group of lads get smashed all weekend so it was what to expect for the price
6.8
  • (Travelling alone)
budget hotel in the centre of Amsterdam
  • + For 40 euro you can't expect a luxury hotel, which it isn't. Here you stay for a night and on a budget. 24 hour reception Includes breakfast. (Nice coffee) City centre location
  • Rooms are very small, but as I mentioned. The price makes up for that.

Not A Place to stay if you have a problem
  • + Breakfast was good.
  • No problem solving. The second day I was there, the person who cleaned my room accidentally took my nightgown out with the laundry. I tried for three days to resolve this problem and never succeeded. They started by denying that it happened, then said they could do nothing until the manager got back and he was away for the holidays. When you lose something belonging to a customer, you need to replace it or provide financial compensation. It wasn't that they lost it, this can happen, but I was annoyed that they made no attempt to fix the problem. I will not stay there again or recommend this hotel to anyone because of this problem.

  • (Travelling alone)
A tidy and well-kept hotel, but in a noisy location.
  • + Staff were helpful and friendly (they relocated me to a room on a lower floor at my request). Although service was sometimes inconspicuous, everything that needed doing was done well. Breakfast was typical Dutch including ham, cheese and boiled eggs, and the tea was good English tea! The whole building was clean (I didn't see any nasty bugs). The offer of a discount for meals in the adjoining Indian restaurant could be attractive to many, although I didn't try it. For those who like historic sights, the hotel is two doors from the Amstelkring museum (formerly a secret Catholic place of worship) and a couple of hundred metres from the Oude Kerk.
  • The location just up the road from the Red Light District is very noisy indeed, not just at weekends but every night. Wouldn't suit everybody, although some of the younger guests seemed keen to take advantage of the "facilities". Fine if you don't mind staying out till 3 a.m. when the street noise starts to calm down. As the hotel is a typical Dutch canalside house, it has steep staircases and no lift. Impossible for disabled guests, and I found the stairs quite challenging. Nearest public transport is nearly half a mile away, and I don't know whether you can order a taxi to the front door.

fair bargain hotel near Centraal station, in the Red light
  • + good price, location 10 min walk from Centraal , decent breakfast, nice staff, in the Red Light but felt very safe and secure, grocery and laundry near by, restaurants, etc. all in all even with its minues I would consider staying here again
  • no lift, steep spriral staircase, not for the elderly or disabled ? I did fine though; unshared bathroom across hall in sep. locked room, noisy at night until late but what do you expect you are in the middle of the Red Light; many drug dealers on streets near hotel offered me harder than coffee shop goods, very annoying, but I seem to attract them, lucky me.. beware? maybe no problems for you, I hope

Only good thing about this hotel was the bed.
  • + Location, Bed
  • Broken window, felt like it would fall at anytime and injure myself or my partner. Could even smell the aroma from the kitchen which was offputting as the smell would fill your room. Asked for it to be looked at or even fixed but nothing. Fan in room looked like it hadn't been cleaned in god knows how long so it wasnt used at all. After staying 1 night my partner started getting huge spots on her arms and after returning home, seeing someone about it turns out their insect bite marks.

Good value for the money
  • + Very near the central train station, right in the middle of the red light district. Still in a safe area, as long as you are not careless. Free breakfast, cheap, and pretty clean. Room was cleaned everyday, with fresh towels, 24-hr reception. Staff is very nice and helpful.
  • The only problem that we had with this hotel was the bathroom. It was clean, but there was nothing to separate the shower from the rest of the bathroom, except for a curtain (no lip on the floor or anything). Needless to say, the entire bathroom floor would get wet when you took a shower, but it was still livable (not too annoying). (Not too sure if this is the norm in a city like Amsterdam or not, so we didn't complain. Like I said, it was livable)

Centrico y buen desayuno, pero zona de mucho movimiento nocturno.
  • + Lo mejor es que está en el mismo corazón de Amsterdam y el desayuno que está bastante bien (pan blanco, integral, mantequillas, queso de plato, queso con hierbas, mermeladas, cafe o te, leche, zumo natural de naranja, huevos duros, jamon cocido, pan de frutos secos...). Tiene una vista estupenda a uno de los canales.
  • Lo peor es que si no te gusta la movida nocturna de porros y prostitución... mejor no cogerlo, aunq yo no tuve problemas de ningún tipo. La calle no es problematica, pero las paralelas son las de los cafes de drogas o el barrio rojo justo una calle por detrás. El hotel es como un hostal en España, asi q no os guieis por las 2 estrellas, y de inicio, da mal rollo los pasillos de las habitaciones, despues ya te relajas un poco.

Amsterdam is a blast.
  • + This was a really cool place to stay. We stayed on the very top floor of the whole building and could see way down the canal from out the window. The red light district was literally right around the corner and the location made it easy to access all of Amsterdam.
  • There was hardly any water pressure at all in the shower, and it was cool to stay on the very top floor, but there were a LOT of steps.

If you're on a budget, Hotel Vijaya is the very best for the value.
  • + Although my single room was small, I was very comfortable.The location was perfect, the breakfast was excellent, my room was always kept very clean, the staff was very friendly and the overall service from all the staff members was great. I stayed for 17 nights and they made me feel as if I were in my own home . They were consistently very helpful in giving me the best directions with mapped out instructions for all the places I needed to go to.

Nice, but not at that price.
  • + Right near central station, good for being able to get everywhere easily. Nice views over the canal. Kind, helpful staff. Reasonably clean interior. They gave me a double bed instead of the single. Breakfast was served til 10am. Hotel happy to hold luggage for you when you check out if you have a late flight.
  • Tiny room with no wardrobe or drawers and bathroom is on other side of corridor. No in-room tea/coffee facilities. A lot of money for a very basic room with a very basic breakfast. Even though it is right in the RLD and centrally situated I would not have paid more than £25 a night... It was £45 a night with this website's discount, inc Breakfast and City Tax. (In Blackpool in August I paid £25pn inc cooked breakfast with en-suite bathroom) Not as swish as the pictures, but it wasn't really bad, just depends on what you want... If you are out all the time it's fine.

The hotel could save environment and money by urging visitors to use towels for several days - fx, dump on floor if one want it changed. Not unusual in more expensive hotels.

But whow would be possible to be in a central location in Amsterdam and have a quiet night? :-) If you're looking for a romantic time in Amsterdam, staying many hours im Hotel, instead walking and visiting Amsterdam, you should book another kind of Hotel. If you need only a room to sleep...after so many tours, Museu, bars, etc, I would say; Hotel Vijaya is a good option also for uncomplicated Persons (even on our age: Couple on the midle of 40's)

No charge if I paid cash. After a long journey I decided to pay the charge, but you have been warned! Think it was cheeky as the charge wasn't mentioned when I booked.

Not enough rooms at the Inn!!
  • + Location - Difficult to say anything else as I didn't have chance to stay in the hotel as I had booked 4 rooms but only 3 were available so I had to find alternative accommodation. I did negotiate a discount prior to leaving the party members who could stay.
  • I booked 4 rooms for the stay for a total of 16 people, when we arrived there was only room for 11. Bearing in mind the trip was for Scotlandâ™s World Cup qualifier against Holland so there were 16,000 Scots in town. The Hotel owner seemed a little bemused by why some of the party were a little upset at the prospect of looking for a new hotel at 11pm on a Friday night!! He finally agreed to allow some to sleep on the floor but at first couldnâ™t understand why I asked for a discount?? I am sorry to say that we werenâ™t the only ones impacted by this issue from speaking to other guests. Not sure what happened and we were not offered any explanation. The cynic in me sayâ™s that they saw all the Scots in town so had sold our other room for an inflated price!!

Oh and real comfy beds.

Hotel Vijaya - great for no frills, cheap and clean fun

There are tons of bars and coffeshops of all types within walking distance. I preferred the smaller local bars as opposed to the large party bars that were filled with other tourists, but whatever your preference, it's nearby.
  • The room was extremely narrow. It offered everything I needed - a bed, toilet, shower, sink, and a locking door - but I was initially pretty surprised by the size of the room. My light by the door didn't work, which sucked because it was the only light near the closet, and my remote control didn't work either, so I just left the TV on the Discovery Channel the entire week.

Great find in an expensive city!
  • + Wow, a cheap place in Amsterdam that isn't a dump! Really, I think this is a great find. It ain't no four-star hotel but I don't need much more than a clean bed/bathroom and a quite place to sleep in the middle of town and this place fit the bill!
  • If you're going to have a TV/DVD player in the room it be cool if it actually works.

Great value for group travellers
  • + Fantastic Location - right in the red-light district. Good value for money. If you're in a group then this place is probably about the same price as a hostel. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • A bit noisy due to the location. Fine if you're going to Amsterdam to party, but maybe not if you have kids.

Basic but Decent
  • + A basic hotel that suited all our needs and was priced very reasonably. It had a beautiful view from the front and the staff were very friendly and spoke good English. The rooms were adequately equipped and the location was perfect for us. A good stay! Thanks!
  • It's not the Ritz and we didn't expect it to be, it was more than adequate.

A real "cool" place
  • + only 5 minutes walk away from the central train station on the beautiful "Oudezijds Voorburgwal", the hotel is located at the edge of Amsterdam's "party zone". Bars, coffeeshops and restaurants are very close, but far away enough, so the noise isn't disturbing. breakfast buffet was surprisingly good it seems that there's an indian restaurant joint to the hotel, but I didn't try it out
  • the window in my room didn't close properly - could be "repaired" with a towel, but the first night was quite freezing shower and toilet are not separated, so the whole bathroom gets wet when one's showering Some of the employees are not very friendly, they seem to be pissed off by their job

revie of Hotel Vijaya Amsterdam'
6.8
  • (Older couples)
If you expect Sheraton, and want Vijaya price. Stay home.
  • + Hotel Vijaya is a friendly and very central located small hotel. Do not expect a five star hotel. But if you are looking for a place in the center of Amsterdam, and a base for exploring the city it is well worth a go. The location is right by one of the many canals, near the central station, the red light district (which is not as "pornograpic" as some might think), museums, shopping, eating. The guests we met were all easy going people. And our room was nice. Well, we had a view to the canal.
  • We got what we were looking for, and willing to pay for.

The cleaning, breakfast and the temper could be better!
  • + The hotel is situated near the station and the centrum of the town. We had our window towards the street and the canal. The view was great!
  • We are not satisfied by the hygiene! The floor in our room was not cleaned up during our stay. Neither the baathroom! Just the waste paperbasket was emptied and the bed was fairly made. I missed yoghurt and fresh fruit to the breakfast! The cheese was dry in the edges. Unfortunately we think there was bad mood. Nobody of the staff said "good morning" when the guests came into the breakfastroom.

It served the purpose at that moment
  • + On the average I find it satisfactory.
  • I felt it was very expensive when compared with hotels in other Europian countries like Paris & the UK. For the same hotel in Paris I could pay between 45 & 50 Euro. The little discomfort was the idea of having a separate toilet from the chalet. It made using the toilet noisy to other guests.Also the TV in room 22 needs to be relocated or the orientation of bed to make watching TV comforable.
