“Quality hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

I go to Amsterdam 3 or 4 times a year and every time I stay at the Barbizian palace. Quality hotel, perfect location. Cannot fault this hotel in any way.

You can specifically get smoking rooms if you require. The hotel has a nice restaurant inside and also has a michelin star restaurant.

Right across from Central Station. walkable. Also walkable to trams to various locations in the city. On the edge of Chinatowna and the Red Light district. Best restaurant was the NEW KING in Chinatown. ate there 3 times. Lines form around 6 so get there early. easy to walk to canal cruise entry and Dam Square. A very walkable city. Loved it. Room was great. Comfortable, luxurious, great bathroom, view of central station. Beautiful lobby. Free internet in lobby. Our luggage was lost and they were so helpful to us in delivering it to our room. Would stay again. ENJOY
Took a Royal Caribbean cruise from Amsterdam to the Norwegian Fjords. Memorable. DO IT. Jeanne

Room Tip: we were on the 3rd floor, view of train station,.

We stayed in the Barbizon Plaza for a couple of days. The rooms were quite ok, clean and spacious.  Our rooms were on the first floor with windows on the street (crowdy at night) but soundproof. We got a very good rest.
Breakfast was very good as well.  Staff was very friendly and helpful. 
The location of the hotel is quite convenient, near to the train station, the ancient part of the city, the shopping streets and the red district. Walking distance to Dom square (7 min).

NOT 5 star quality. I "upgraded" to a better room and I'm in a queen size bed with a tube tv in dated decor. I would hate to see what I would have had. Close to Centraal, RLD and everything, but I'm not impressed with the hotel. Not bad, mind you....just not as impressed as you think you would be

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in July. We were shocked that this is advertised as a five star property. I know the rating system is different than what we would expect in the U.S., but this is ridiculous. The pro's are: beautiful lobby, got a really low rate on priceline, close to Centraal Station. The con's: some of the staff are indifferent at best, our room was outdated, the air conditioning does not work, it is loud, it is located next to the red light district, the internet is not free, the 15 minute internet passes in the lobby did not always work, our room was not ready by check in. The first room assigned to us was very noisy and hot. It was on the first floor facing a street with a lot of traffic. They reassigned us to a room that faced the interior lobby, which meant we could not open windows for air. It was so uncomfortable we hated being in the room. After reading many reviews on tripadvisor it is obvious that the hotel staff are aware that the air conditioning does not work. Therefore, the look of surprised disbelief on the face of the staff when we mentioned how uncomfortably hot our room was left us amazed at their acting abilities. If we could do it over again we would priceline bid on a different zone (near the Jordaan or museum quarter) or would pay more and book straight from another hotel's website.

Room Tip: Exterior rooms in the front are very noisy. Interior lobby facing rooms don't have windows that...

This hotel is literally across the street from central station. Very easy to find (large sign on the roof) when you get off the train. Room was great with very modern bathroom and any kind of pillow you request. It was large for Euroupen standards. The breakfast was expensive. Much cheaper to buy it at one of the many restraunts close by. The staff was very friendly. My phone charger stopped working while there and the concierge offered to charged it for me. The hotel is very close to shops, tour places, riverboat rides and restraunts. Everything was within walking distance. The only down side was the fact that to use the internet you had to get 15 minute vouchers from the front desk to use in the business center.

Room Tip: We asked for a large quiet room and got a king sized bed on the 4th floor. Perfect

We were only staying in Amsterdam 1 night and needed to get away from Centraal station early the next morning so the location was excellent with that in mind. Reception staff were very friendly and the lobby looked 5 star. Our room was on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. Old style tv, no free in room wifi, dated furniture, but the room was clean if noisy at night. Plenty of places to eat and drink close by. Suited our needs but if staying longer than a night i'd suggest somewhere else for the prices charged.
