We arrived at the Barbacan hotel on the 17th November at around 10, check in was not until 2. We were greeted by the lovely Nelly, she was very welcoming and sweet we had a lovely chat and she told us all the touristy things we can get up to in Amsterdam, we also met Boy the big fluffy cat... More

We expected budget accommodation but this was worse! We were told it was a private bathroom but it was shared, the drain in the shower had no cover so was an open dirty pipe, the sink in the bathroom had no water an the pipe wasnt even connected! The room was like a sauna!!! Way too hot to sleep...or breathe!... More

A friend of mine made the booking. Otherwise we wouldn't have stayed here judging from other reviews. Very unfriendly reception lady, very rude and unpleasant. Even before we said hello. She is an older lady and seems to be the boss. Our room with 5 seperate beds was not available yet (noon), check-in is at 2pm. We ask for plastic... More

Don't go there! It's very expensive, ugly, dirty, noisy...my stay in Amsterdam was ruined by this very sad experience. The staff was not nice at all. We wanted to cancel one night, the lady refused. She wasn't polite at all, and I heard her yell at French people who couldn't speak English fluently... DISGUSTING just run away!

As a group of young travellers, this place was more than ideal! It was cheap, which for Amsterdam is very difficult to find! We were given towels and a really comfy bed each. There wasn't much space in the hotel room as there were five of us, but we didn't mind. The ensuite was basic and small but you get... More

My wife and I were less than impressed with this hotel. The share toilet on our level was out of order. The swipe key cards locked us out of our room on a number of occasions. The smell of smoke was potent. The location was reasonable, but be prepared to rough it.

Smelly, and something bites my leg in the midnight I opened the light and have a quick check still do not know what was that... overall prices for this kind of room its not worth it, do not believe on any online offer or discount even though 5 or 10percent off it is not worth it!

After reading the reviews I was dreading the Hotel just a tad! The Hotel was easy to find (Number 9 Tram from Centraal Station and off at Plantage) and we were able to drop our cases off at 10am as Check In isn't until 2pm. Staff seemed friendly enough. Bar wasn't open on the Friday night so we just had... More

For the money I cant really understand what other reviewers are moaning about! We stayed in room 23, it was clean, fresh, comfortable and secure. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the cat was lovely! I would definitely recommend it as a base for anyone who wants to enjoy a break in Amsterdam and would definitely return! :-)
