4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Barbizon's location is by far the best thing about it - opposite Centraal station, a few yards from Damrak and the red light district. However it's not really 5 star. The reception/communal areas are nice enough, but the rooms are only really on a par with 3 or 4 star hotels. Having said that I would stay here again... More

Me and my partner have always wanted to travel to Amsterdam without staying in one of their many hostels. We booked this hotel after weeks of debating between a couple in the area. We arrived and was impressed by the lobby area and the dining area. We got given our key and directed to our room. We instantly didn't like... More

Sorry to say, but honestly, the service at the restaurant is quite bad. The waitresses are nowhere to be seen and when the food finally comes, it's not even hot anymore. It takes forever to get your food (it took me an hour to get a burger w/ chips). I am overall very disappointed over the quality of the restaurant... More

You can't beat this location. We did not catch one taxi whilst in Amsterdam as this hotels location was within close proximity to restaurants, nightlife, shopping, Dam Square etc. For about €5.10 per person, we caught the train from the airport into Central Station which is directly opposite the hotel. We hired bikes from the hotel one day for €16... More

We stayed at the Barbizon for 4 nights and liked it for the location, right on the edge of the old town and china town, and right across from the train station. Everything else was within walking distance for us, as we are walkers, and found it fine to even walk to the Anne Frank house and other neighborhoods. We... More

On the record heat day for Amsterdam, our AC did not work in the room. I reported it, and 3 hours later had to call again. They brought a portable AC unit, which did not make any difference. The only working ice machine was on floor 2, all the rest were broke down. The best I can mention is the... More

Perfect location for a short stay because it is as close as it gets to the central station. Still, the city center and most touristic attractions are at walking distance away. A member of the staff at the reception desk was unfriendly. The room was not exactly clean. I definitely expected much better from a five stars hotel in a... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
