 "5 Star Price for 3 Star Quality"
For location you cant fault the hotel. The reception is friendly and lobby clean and modern. We were offered a room overlooking the main square or the canal to the rear, we took the canal to the rear [idyllic, relaxing aesthetic] that was a mistake! [should have realised when there was ear plugs next to the bed]. The noise and the smell was a issue, the corridor on the ground floor also smelt strongly of foul water. Our room was not made up on one day and we needed to go and ask for clean towels and soap. Breakfast and the staff were great. I think it only lacks more professionalism, a good deep clean [rooms and corridors] and some honest communication re what you will get.and experience.

 "A tasteful hotel in a somewhat seedy city"
We only stayed in the NH Barbizonhotel for 1 night after a cruise but they gave us the room till 5 on our day of our departure without us asking. The staff could not have been more helpfulThe rooms were spacious beautifully clean and well equiped They were a bit noisy on a night but I think you would be hard pushed in Amsterdam to find a room that you could not hear traffic or peopleThe location was excellent straight opposite the train station and right in the heart of the cityI would certainly reccomend this hotel to anyone who asked but unfortunately I cannot say the same for Amsterdam where I found the seedy side overpowered beatiful arhitecture and pleasant walks
