“Fantastic hotel, a short free shuttle ride from the centre!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

This hotel is only a 10 min (free) shuttle ride from their sister hotel The NH Barbizon (which is across the road from Central Station). The hotel itself was clean and very comfortable. The rooms were bright, clean and comfortable with aircon, a fridge for snacks and drinks and a huge superkingsize bed! The hotel also offers free DVD rental for your room and free 15 min PC use.
PS...If you feel peckish late at night! I would thoroughly recommend 'Mesir Doner', a clean, friendly, bright little cafe across the road, open late and serving the most amazing Kebabs and Pizzas!!

We arrived at the hotel after booking on easytobook.com.

When we arrived, the hotel couldn't find any record of our reservation. Easytobook.com had taken the order but not passed it onto the hotel. Immediately, the lady on the desk told me what had happened, said that they would try to get to the bottom of it, and assured me that there would be somewhere to stay for us. A few minutes later she had sorted it out (by ringing head office and logging into easytobook's computers to find our records) and she upgraded us to a king size room, and even threw in a balloon for our toddler.

Overall, the staff here were the friendliest and most helpful we have come across in any hotel.

The outside of the hotel looks a bit drab, but the inside is lovely. The king size room was very large with a massive bathroom, all stylishly decorated in contemporary decor. There was a TV with some english channels in the room. The bed was super comfortable. Shower good. They provided a cot for our toddler too.

There is a restaurant and bar but we didn't use them.

The hotel is slightly out of the centre but there are two ways to get there.
1. Take the free shuttle bus which goes from the hotel entrance to the NH Brabizon hotel opposite the railway station downtown. It is 10 minutes ride and the bus goes from 10am to 11.45pm (i think).

2. Walk 15-20 minutes to the river and pick up the free water taxi that takes you across to the centre.

We opted for the bus.

There is a market just across the road from the hotel on Wednesday mornings.

Features that we found great:
Free parking for guests
Free shuttle bus every 15 mins (10 mins ride) to Town Centre.
Breakfast is available if required: 19 euros pp. We didn't have it
Free Wifi in lobby
Beautiful modern interior design. Very spacious

We have no complaints at all with this hotel.

The N H Galaxy is a very nice hotel that is tucked away just a few miles from the downtown Amsterdam area. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They offer complimentary shuttle service into the city that drops off in front of the N H Barbazon. The drop off point is an excellent location to walk to various restaurants and all other activities that may be on your list of things to do such as tours. The rooms are very clean and very modern. They have a mini fridge in each room too. My family of four had a short stay here. We had two rooms with double beds each. The double beds are pushed together and appear a king bed, but the sheets are made up on each one as separate. It worked out fine. We would definitely stay here again! They gave a great room rate.

This is a great hotel for anyone who wants a good quality room for a decent price but doesn't mind staying a bit out of the city centre. The rooms are nicely decorated (recently refurbished) with good facilities (DVD player, safe, fridge). Hotel facilities are good (free bag drop, free wifi and use of the computers in the lounge) with friendly staff. There is a bar and restaurant on site, we didn't use these but they looked good from the outside (happy hour in the bar from 5 to 7pm).

The location is on the north side of the IJ river so you are a bit out of things but this made the stay all the better (it is located in a quiet residential area). I've stayed in the centre of Amsterdam many times before and the noise can sometimes get a bit tiresome. There is a free hotel shuttle to the centre but we didn't use this as the 34 and 35 bus stops pretty much outside the hotel and takes about 7 mins to get to Centraal Station.

Would stay here again without hesitation.

we stayed 3 nights. even if the hotel is not directly in the center the internal shuttle is very efficient and frequent. Tidy rooms. A very priceworthy solution!

The recent remodel served this hotel very well. The decor and color scheme of the rooms are well thought out. I like the rooms in the tower My room was huge this time, however I have had smaller rooms before. Never get a smoking room (even if you smoke) they smell really bad. I like to go for a walk and catch the FREE water taxi to Central Station and wonder around Dam Square. It is nice after a busy day of sight seeing to come to a quiet part of town. The staff is ALWAYS very friendly and helpful. There are bikes you can rent from the hotel (however get your request in early on a nice day). I also like to go to the Nearby Albert Heine grocery store and stock up on great cheese. There are many ethnic choices for food near the hotel.
