For a first trip to Amsterdam, I figured it made sense to stay at a hotel near Central Station. It was a wise choice. The Barbizon Palace is within eyeshot of the station, and very close to many fun areas; also an easy point to venture anywhere in the city. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, and service is fine. This is a European five-star hotel, and by American standards, probably a four. If you know this going in, you will not be disappointed in the accommodations at all. This is also one of the few nice hotels in all of Amsterdam that have smoking rooms available. This hotel (unlike many others in Amsterdam) do not charge you to watch television and have efficient elevator service. Oddly, some rooms at the hotel have windows that open and some rooms don't -- so request by e-mail any specifics like this that you want (in addition to upper floors with nicer views at no extra cost--5th floor is nice--a quieter part of the hotel, etc.) and they will acommodate you if they can. They are very helpful. The concierge was terrific with every question and bit of information I ever needed. Considering the price, location, and overall needs for this trip, I have no complaints whatsoever about this hotel.
