I booked this hotel as part of a surprise 50th birthday trip to Amsterdam for my husband. I cheekily emailed ahead to ask if they could wish him a happy birthday as we were arriving on his birthday. They responded by saying they would organise something. We got there and were greeted with birthday wishes and more importantly and impressively... More

Great central location especially if you are travelling from Schiphol by train. I had a canal view room which I did not find noisy at all. Some of the furnishings in my room needed upgrading but all in all a good stay at this hotel and I would return. The bar is quiet and serves lovely cocktails. We didn't have... More

This hotel is in a good location with clean rooms and friendly staff. Do not expect modern fit out but that is not what you get in this area anyway. If we were to go back to Amsterdam we would stay here again.

I have stayed at the Barbizon four times and have found the service consistently good. The rooms vary based on what part of the hotel you are staying in. I prefer the city-view rooms, which tend to be slightly larger and have period details, such as old beams on the ceiling. However, the carpets are in desperate need of replacement,... More

I took my boyfriend away as a surprise for his birthday and had read amazing reviews on Barbizon so seemed only right. Location is brilliant, rightin the center!! The staff were polite and helpful. Only thing i could possibly say bad about it, is that the rooms decor is very dated and they demand a credit card on arrival. I... More

During June we stayed here for six days. The front lobby looks smart but the rooms are really old fashioned / dated - it really looks ancient. I was disappointed that there were no face cloths in the bathroom - standard for washing (one would think). There are very limited eating / restaurant facilities for lunch and dinner. Although there... More

I really liked this hotel, after a 5 euro train journey from the airport I could see the hotel from the station. It was In an ideal location to get anywhere in Amsterdam within minutes via train, road or tram. After a manic day exploring Amsterdam this was a lovely retreat, the staff were very attentive and always helpful.

20 years ago this must have been a nice place. In 2015 it is ready for a total refurbishment. Would not stay there again. Rooms are not clean, loud, airco didn't function, far from a 5 star hotel. Don't go there.
