Im just back from a 4 day trip to amsterdam with my wife and we decided to stay at the barbizon palace, and i cant praise the place enough. When arriving at central station we could look across the skyline and see the name on the top of the hotel minutes away.
The staff were really friendly, offering the option of a room with a view or a quieter internal facing room. We took the view and it was looking over the beautifully built central station and couldnt complain about the noise, as 3 floors up we would occasionally hear people if they were shouting (as would be expected in any busy city).
The location was great, less than a five minute walk to central station for connections across europe, five minutes to Dam Square and the Palace, and less than five and you'll be right in the middle of the red light district, and any number of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants.
Breakfast was all you can eat, with hot an cold foods, cereals and fruits and a spread that filled my belly every morning and they even offered a detox liquid health drink called PowerJuice that i will miss.
Rooms were large with kettle and iron, safe, mini bar over 30 channels on the tv, at least 8 english speaking so i was entertained when not out and about, the rooms were dated but it kept with the theme of the city itself and room service came everyday and even on the days were we had a do not disturb sign up we would get a call in the afternoon to ask if we needed anything, which i though was proper vip treatment.
