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.

.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.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

We had a very nice room. Our beds were extremely comfortable. The hotel is basically across the street from the Central Train Station where you can also catch the trams and/or the canal boat rides. Very convenient location. Short walk to Dam Square. Easy to walk to the red light district too. We were very pleased with this hotel. We only stayed one night but the breakfast surprise bill kind of left us not feeling as positive, but overall it was a good experience. We will be uploading some photos of the area at [@]

Dining tip: In Hotel

The 2 of us were billed 50 euro just for breakfast. If your breakfast is not included, then consider going right down the street to your left for a 10 euro breakfast. We personally don't like throwing money away, but if we had felt it was worth it, then it would have been different.

Great Downtown Location and nice rooms

Took the train from the airport and walked to the otel in a few minutes. I got a top level room that was great - it had exposed beams with an open celing. I doubt all the rooms are as interesting as mine. I had no problems with the elevator security, and thought the hotel was run extremely well. Everything about my stay was great, food was expensive but they had one of the best veggie burgers I have ever had.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the train to and from the airport - cheap ~ 4 Euros vs 55 for a taxi and it is fast. I was able to go from the door of the hotel to the airport in under 25 minutes including buying a ticket and waiting almost 10 minutes for the train. Train runs every ~15 minutes to the airport.

Weekend break to Amsterdam.

This hotel was in a fantastic location you couldn't wish for any better. We did not eat here so cannot comment on the food, but the menu did look a little on the expensive side & didn't have many guests dining here. The bar was about the same price as an other pub in Amsterdam. Our room did not have a safe, so we had to go behind reception to a safety deposit room, and although this was not ideal you felt very safe & it was never a problem to the staff to let you in whilst you got what you needed. It was a nice hotel & I would deffo go back. Rooms were clean & staff were friendly :-)

Great location

fab location in the central area, very friendly and relaxing atmosphere, room was a good size with everything you require and very clean although the beds were a bit uncomfortable this would not stop me from returning. Would be better if you could pick room type (twin/double) when booking online.

A good weekend away

We got to the hotel at around 9.30am after flying into the airport and catching the train to the city centre. The hotel is directly opposite the station so very easy to find. We were given a room straight away by the helpful staff on reception with a choice of an inner room or outer one. We choose the inner one as we thought it would be quieter and indeed it was. You could here a pin drop! However the room was a reasonable size but it only had a standard double bed, (we are used to a superking) but could of easily had a bigger bed in there. The bathroom was clean and tidy and the shower worked well and you were given descent sized towels. The main bugbear was the air con or lack of it! It was set to 25 degrees but if altered the temp it just jumped back to 25. Even with it switched off the room was still really hot. So our room was extremely hot with no means of cooling the room as there was no opening window (the window looked out onto reception) not good if you prefer a cooler room! We did not eat in the hotel but there are loads of good places to eat within minutes of the hotel so don't bother booking breakfast with your stay. Overall the hotel is in an excellent location just don't expect too much from your room. The room is more what you find in a 3 star hotel. It a great city and don't be put off this hotel as long as only expect to use it for somewhere to get your head down for the night.

Great Location

The location is amazing, just walking distance from Centraal Station. Took the train to & from Schiphol. Within walking distance there is so much to do and see. Trams can take you all over but I prefered to walk. Service at the Terrace restaurant was always very good, very fun staff. Reception was polite but ALWAYS seemed to be very busy checking in/out guests.
