“Five Star ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Spent 2 nights in the Barbizon Palace, I have known this hotel from the year it opened, so I can compare the past and today.
5 star ? I had specifically order rooms for early check in but when we arrived (12.00) it was difficult even to find our reservation's. All in all the hotel makes a tired impression, and a large puddle of OJ sat on the lobby floor for hours, not what you expect for 5 stars, breakfast is good and plenty to choose from but not cheap !! The location is great and ask for the 00 room's at the back where you are under canal level.

Room Tip: Room's on the 00 lev are good

Shame that easy to book had not relayed our booking to the hotel...could have been a problem but they found us a room. May not have been possible if it HD been a smaller hotel. Excellent location for restaurants and transport

This hotel is very average.

Front desk staff not welcoming at check-in.
Big black curly hair on toilet.
Long hair in bath/shower.
Air-con doesn't seem to cool at all.
Wi-fi is so slow it's almost useless.
Windows single glazed, allowing street sounds through.
Lack of sound isolation from nearly room and the corridor.
Rooms very tired, in need of updating.

On the plus side... Great location

The hotel was clean with good sized rooms for Europe (American sizes vs Europe). Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good.

Only drawback... No washcloths. Had plenty of towels though.

Stayed here for 3 nights when attending a business meeting. First time in Amsterdam for me. Had a nice room overlooking the street which I did not find noisy. Hotel is close to the centre and the red light area and a China town for those that want to see that side of Amsterdam. Didn't have evening meals at hotel but lunch was good. Only negative was v slow check in and hotel makes the billing complicated as take advance payment on arrival.

The Barbizon's location is by far the best thing about it - opposite Centraal station, a few yards from Damrak and the red light district. However it's not really 5 star.
The reception/communal areas are nice enough, but the rooms are only really on a par with 3 or 4 star hotels.
Having said that I would stay here again - indeed this may become my regular Amsterdam hotel now..
