Great Location and clean rooms

Walk from train station in two minutes to a fancy hotel with bar and restaurant and very clean rooms. I am very pleased with the comfort, the room was quiet. I would go back for sure.

Orbitz very disappointing- hotel fair

hotel fair, but Orbitz provided terrible customer service leading up to the trip. I had to call them 3 times and my issue was never resolved. I ended up losing close to $1000 because they didn't understand that a death in the family is something that cannot be changed. They wouldn't help me cancel or make any exceptions.

Not a nice hotel !!

It’s more like a 3 star hotel. My husband and I stayed there in September for 5 days. We came to Amsterdam from a satisfying stay at 4 star NH hotel in Ghent. We hoped that Amsterdam 5 star NH hotel will be better, but we were disappointed. Hotel staff told us that because of renovation, there’s no sauna and gym in the hotel. This was not mentioned on the hotel’s web site. Our room had old small screen TV and old furniture. Beds were terrible. Pillows- artificial and very bad- they replaced them with somewhat better. Closet door was not easy to open, so we kept the sliding closet door open. There were no drawers in the room and we needed to keep most of our clothes in the suit case or put on chairs. When we complaint about the room, the manager promised to find another room in the morning, but morning manager said that it was a lie and there are no rooms available. In exactly these words !!! Bathroom had only one sink, no separate shower and a narrow bath tab, where it was very uncomfortable to take shower. Room had no slippers and one over-sized bath robe. They delivered slippers after our request. Business center had only one PC (!!!), which turned off every 15 minutes. Hotel’s location is very good, we have to admit. We do not recommend to stay there.

Barbizon Amsterdam

conveniently located hotel across from the station. easy public transport to main museums. Pleasant/helpful staff. Only problem was when we wanted to extend they said they were overbooked and do not give preference to a guest already in the hotel--seemed irrational to us.

Good location

The hotel is in a good location near the train station, but our room was on the 1st floor next to the street and we could hear everything going on til it quieted down around 2am. The bed had not been replaced in the last 10 years I think, old tv, have to pay to use the fitness center

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.

5 stars?

Well it's right near central station. So if you wanna just drop your bags off and hang out this is a good place. But 5 stars is certainly an exaggeration.

Great Spot

This hotel was perfect. Checked in quickly, got out on the town. Ambiance was amazing and Location couldn't have been better. The room was a little old and dated but clean. Perfect spot to drop after a long night on the town :) Everything you would need is at your fingertips!
