Park Plaza Victoria Hotel Amsterdam
Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam is a 4-star hotel that combines classic elegance with contemporary comforts. Located in the historic city centre, this hotel is within easy reach of Amsterdam’s iconic landmarks, cultural treasures, and vibrant nightlife and is a perfect location for ADE delegates.
Directions from Central Station to Park Plaza
Getting to Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam from Amsterdam Central Station is remarkably convenient, given the hotel’s proximity to the station. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
- Exit Amsterdam Central Station: After disembarking from your train at Amsterdam Central Station, follow the signs to the main station hall.
- Exit towards Stationsplein: Once in the main hall, look for the exit signs pointing to “Stationsplein.” This exit takes you directly to the square in front of the station.
- Walk to the Hotel: From Stationsplein, simply cross the street (Prins Hendrikkade) and head towards the hotel, which you’ll easily spot. Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam is located at Damrak 1-5, 1012 LG Amsterdam, just a stone’s throw from the station.
The journey is a short walk that should take you no more than 5 minutes, making it incredibly convenient, especially if you’re carrying luggage.
