Expert review of Hotel Victorie

Fun, cheap designer hotel in a 1930s apartment building.

Low rates and a colourful style compensate for the Victorie's somewhat off-the-beaten-track location. Corridors are purple, stairs are metallic silver, there are cowhide stools in the breakfast room and outsize furry cushions on beds. I like the place because it dares to be a bit different.

Location: 

Just south of the multicultural Pijp district, on the southern side of the city. It's a 15-minute tram ride to Centraal Station, less to other parts of the city centre.

Bedrooms: 

Simple but fun, with blonde wood floors, a silver beanbag, those furry cushions on beds. Shower rooms are small and a little dated. Some rooms at the back have balconies, though these may be in need of a bit of TLC. Note that stairs to the 24 rooms are steep and there's no lift.

Public areas: 

The lounge lobby has a purple sofa, mushroom-shaped wood tables, a pebble effect round a fireplace, while the very appealing breakfast room has white fake leather banquette seating and those cowhide stools I've already mentioned. French windows open on to a shady courtyard garden with picnic tables, where you can have breakfast in fine weather.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast - included in the rates - is the only meal on offer, and is a decent help-yourself spread. There's a drinks machine in the lobby.

Leisure facilities: 

There are bikes for rent.

Service: 

Willing staff at reception.
