Victoria Hotel AmsterdamA home away from home

By: Jay Moncliff

One of the famous reasons of the booming tourism industry of the city of Amsterdam is its friendly people. Moreover, the natives of this European city, regardless of age, are also known to speak good English. To accommodate the growing number of people who come to Amsterdam to spend their vacation, around four hundred registered hotels can be found in the city of Amsterdam. These establishments have mushroomed catering to all tourists with diverse preferences and financial considerations. Almost half of the hotels in the city are tagged as four- or five- star hotels. Among the more prominent luxury hotels are Hotel Okura, Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel, Hotel Ambassade, Victoria Hotel Amsterdam and Hotel Pulitzer.

The location of a hotel is one factor that a lot of tourists consider when choosing a hotel. The ideal temporary home should be one that is most suitable to the itinerary of the tourist during his or her brief stay. Most of these hotels are located somewhere in the center of the city. The Victoria Hotel Amsterdam, in particular, is conveniently situated right across the Centraal Train Station. This historic four-star deluxe hotel was built way back in 1890. The ACH Leidse Square Hotel Amsterdam, like the Victoria Hotel Amsterdam also boasts of a great location. Many interesting shops, famous museums, the Vondel Park and the Concert Hall can be found just a few blocks from this hotel. Near the Victoria Hotel Amsterdam is the Amstel Hotel Amsterdam, a modern five-star hotel that is just three minutes away from the train station.

Unlike the Victoria Hotel Amsterdam, some luxury hotels are found in less strategic locations. Hotel Okura, for example, is considerably far from the central station. A client would still have to travel by tram for approximately fifteen minutes before he or she will reach the train station. In the end, most of its clients take the cabs if they go around the city.

It may not always be easy to book a hotel room especially during the peak months of July and August. Because this is the case, all would-be Amsterdam tourists are advised to book their hotel accommodation in advance. A travel agency or a reservation center can do this in behalf of the customer. For those who want to book hotel rooms by themselves, they can just go online to do this. Many websites like the www.europe-cities.com provide online assistance to customers for hotel reservations. Using special search engines, a tourist will be given the chance to choose from cheap Amsterdam hotels to luxurious hotels like the Victoria Hotel Amsterdam. Special hotel deals are also offered through these online reservation sites. Once the hotel booking has been confirmed, a confirmation email will be sent.

Moreover, the Internet also provides another tool that a tourist can use before deciding a suitable hotel for him or her. People who have already stayed in a specific hotel post hotel reviews online. These reviews may be positive or negative depending on the kind of hotel experience that the reviewer has had.
