We were a group of 10 adults travelling in couples to celebrate our 40th birthdays, we chose this hotel because of the free shuttle bus and the price of the hotel which compared to city centre hotels was good value for money, we all felt this was a great decision.

The hotel is a 10 min drive from city centre and the free shuttle bus runs from NH Galaxy to NH Barbizon (just outside central station) all day from 9am to just after midnight, there is also a free ferry 24 hour ferry which is 10 min walk from hotel which brings you to city centre but we did not need to use this.

To minimise cost we travelled from airport by train which cost about 4 euros then walked from train station (3 min walk) to NH Barbizon and got the free shuttlebus to NH Galaxy it was so easy, if the shuttlebus is not there pop inside and speak to the concierge at the Barbizon and he will advise when to expect the shuttle bus, we never waited more than 10 minutes.

The rooms were functional very clean and the aircon kept our room really cool, we stayed on the 4th floor and rooms were obviously non smoking which suited us.

I didn't eat anything at the hotel but some of our group did and they described breakfast at 15 euros pp very good, I believe it was a buffet style with a vast selection this sounds expensive but when you go into the city you can easily pay 8 euros for an omelette, 3 euros for a coffee and same for an orange juice it seems good value and if we had been there longer I would have tried the breakfast as my friends did give it a good review,

I cannot find any fault with this hotel, to return to the airport we did our arrival in reverse and again this was no problem, in fact the shuttle bus driver dropped us off directly at the train station,

Now to the best bits...5-9pm is Happy hour, (Amsterdam can be expensive and every little helps) If you are checking out on a sunday they offer a FREE late checkout at 5pm, this was fantastic for us as we had 9.30pm flight. We all had the opportunity after a busy day to shower or freshen up before leaving for the airport.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I believe there are some smoking rooms, we Stayed on 4th floor and these were most definitely NOT sm...

We went for 3 nights and all were gone super! friendly staff, very clean and nice room!!
The transport to the center is very useful and free, from 9.00 until 00.00
We didnt have breakfast.
The position is accessible very easily by the car, in the North side of Amsterdam.

The food in the restraurant is aweful! The several items I have tried all taste like cheap frozen dinners. The cost of the food is outragious even if it was good. Hamburger and cheap frozen fries $25. Club Sandwich $23, Caesar Salad $24.

The Air Conditioner is not strong enough for warm days. On a 76f/24c day it was very uncomfortably in my room. Mangememt said my a/c unit was working properly but it is just not able to cool enough on the warm days.

I found this hotel was well positioned if you have a car. There is a complementary shuttle service to the ferry running constant. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The hotel bar is like an American bar as this is the stop over for American aircrew. Overall good hotel

Whilst the hotel rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable with adjoining bathroom, the hotel is a boat ride (24hr service) and mini bus shuttle service (which is only available up to 12.15am) away. If you only want to sleep as most of the airline staff that stayed did then this is fine, we had our breakfast outside the hotel. My concerns were the extremely rude staff whose attitudes were unhelpful around a card key that never worked for the two nights we stayed and then they tried to charge 4 times for using the internet service which was used on one occasion, even though internet charges were for a 24 hr period and we had only been there 2 nights, and then they wouldn't believe it was incorrect until confirmed by their internet providers, very dodgy!
