Great Staff, Great Location, Needs Modernisation

The staff of this hotel in my opinion and dealings were excellent especially reception and room service and house keeping. Location Location Location is the main selling point for the tourist especially first-timers. Rooms were clean but need modernisation. Billed as a 5 star maybe in parts but not in general but a good 4 star. Some rooms are split level maybe a consideration for some guests. Room 450 is internal avoid. The canal rooms were great even the waterhens were a pleasure.

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 [@]

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.
