.NH Barbizon Palace had a great location but should be rated a 3 1/2 to 4 star hotel

The room was spacious and clean, but the lobby and bathroom were not 5 star. It was nice to be so close to central station and the canal bus.

Good central hotel

We had a great time on our first trip to Amsterdam, the hotel was ideally situated across from the train station and just on the doorstep of all Amsterdam had to offer. Room was clean and a decent size, reception staff were friendly and helpful, it isn't 5 star fancy but is everything you need for a city break. Only negatives were the corridors smelled quite badly and the shower leaked regardless of what I did.

Not 5 star by my standards

Although this hotel is rated a 5 stars and the hotel lobby and location may seem to impress, the rooms need desperate attention! The rooms are large for European standards. Carpets need replacing. Mattresses need replacing. Trim,and decor need updating or a good,cleaning! Towels are a little too worn. Our friends had problems with bugs in their bed!!! Staff changed their,room of course but it still worries me even though we were on a different floor. Well not go back to this hotel but would go back to the other hotel we stayed at in Amsterdam (Hampshire Hotel) which was cheaper and cleaner.

Comofrtable central hotel

Next to Centraal station and near red light district. Check-in friendly and courteous. Asked for quiet room, but ended up with room on second floor at back with no view, although it was VERY quiet. Room was good sized and clean. Contained old style (CRT) TV which had fault. But was ok to watch. Toiletries provided were plentiful. Safe was very useful. Overall the room was comfortable with a large double bed which was very comfortable. Didn't have to wait too long for lifts, although had to keep inserting room card to operate. Breakfast is very expensive if not included or booked in advance - so we ate out. Did not use amenities like fitness centre, sauna etc so can't comment on those. Overall a pleasant stay and would definitely book again.

Not a 5 Star

On arrival after 2.30pm was told the room was not ready despite being informed check in was 2pm. Room we were given was very small and dark with 1 bed, despite the fact they knew that there would be 2 adults and a 13 year old. Got room changed quickly for a bigger room, brighter room but they still had to arrange for another bed. TV did not work, was changed next day. I believe they have some very nice rooms but they also have some rooms in need of modernisation. I have stayed in 3 star Premier Inns that are better. In saying all of that Amsterdam is a great city and the Hotel is ideally situated for Centraal Station and all tourist spots.

4 day break in Amsterdam

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the nh barbizon palace for three nights, first impressions were great on arrival. The room we were given was dark and dingy but we only slept in there so that was no problem. We spent all of our time wandering around the city and visiting places such as the royal artis zoo, the anne frank house and vondelpark. A great place to go for a short break there is so much to do and see.
