Breakfast was oke I like sleeping with open window, but there was a lot of noise from outside
The breakfast was very poor
Location was pretty close to the city...just 15 mins by bus 48 to the Centraal Station. Bus station just in front of the hotel. Price is a bit high, we paid 100 EUR for one night without breakfast...but I guess that's how most hotels are in Amsterdam. Anyways, you get very good breakfast in the city (we paid 25 EUR for 2 people).
There is not minibar in the room. It's far away from the city center.
24 hour reception (due to a traffic jam I arrived at 4.30am), english speaking and friendly staff, disabled room, although it did lack shower grab rails and a low shower tray and curtain would help stop the spread of water. Tea/Coffee making facilities or a Drinks Vending machine would improve the hotel. The room felt slighly cramped but I understand that is a standard room size.
it was very difficult to get to and from the hotel to the city centre. The hotel is 15 minutes away via a bus, however, the bus only comes twice an hour! this makes planning very inconvenient.
Location was pefect if you have a car, you won´t find better. Without car, it´s still ok.Only 10 min to the city by bus and the station is just outside the hotel. The service and the staff was excellent. We got useful info and bus timetable while check-in. Very clean room. Free parking in the weekends outside the hotel! but really cheap anyway in the weekdays The bed was not so comfortable, we expected somethong better. Bad pillows. Price could be lower but I think the price standard in amsterdam is high anyway
distance from city center and limited night services for public transport.
The room that i stayed was quite large , also shower was wide enough for me; sine i am almost 2 mt high :) The lady on the phone -reservation desk was rude !They cancelled our booking. When i called them on 7.10 she argued that we had to be there before 7 pm. No other room were free : she claimed ! When i called Booking.com hotline, they resolved th issue; and suddenly we were able to stay ! I think they were expecting to sell the rooms at higher prices!
Stayed here for 4 days on a social visit to Amsterdam. Found the room to be very clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities within the room were good and refilled daily as well as a small fridge. The bathroom was spacious and very clean, shower was fantastic. TV was good and with a good variety of channels in several languages. Free Wi-Fi in the hotel was also good. Despite being so close to the airport we found the sound from the planes close to non-existent (room was at the back) free shuttle bus to the airport was very convenient for getting the train into the centre. Looking to take another trip and will definitely stay at this hotel again!
Noise from aircraft
It stayed there just for the night as I had an early flight from the airport the next morning. For that purpose the hotel is fine. The shower was not usable as the pipe was completely broken down so I could not fresh up in the morning. I complained at the reception, but they didn't seem to take me serious at all. This seems to happen more often in this hotel. I'll use another hotel at the airport not next occasions.
beeakfast was excellent. room was spotless. walls are paper thin. rude people woke me knockking on their friends door 3 doors down at 2:30 am. it sounded like they might be knocking on my door. their noise continued for over an hour and destroyed my nights sleep.
Close to airport The air conditioning would not turn on unless it was warmer than 18 C outside. This is some weird Dutch cheap money saving tactic that keeps guests warm or outright hot, and at the mercy of what it's doing outside. I paid for the room. Let me control the thermostat.
Easy access to airport Arrived after a very long travel day. Staff was unfriendly, room was fine but sterile.
the shuttle to the airport was nice My refrigerator in the room did not work and they did not have an ice machine. The airport hotel really wasn't close to the airport. The airport shuttle did not run passed 11:30 pm.
Easy check in and easy to use shuttle to and from the airport. Nice lobby and restaurant. Room was nice, standard. Good value, I would stay here again. McDonald's restaurant a block away, but nothing else. Bathroom not 100% clean, but good enough.
close ot the airport very basic
Close to airport and free shuttle to airport. Clean room and friendly staff. Not close to walk to anything.
Clean Uncomfortable bed and the wifi only had a good signal in the lobby. I had a room on the 3rd floor and could not get any reception in my room which was very frustrating
Nice room for a good price. Free shuttle to Schiphol made it easy to get to the airport. It's location made it a bit of a process to get to downtown Amsterdam, but it wasn't too bad.
The hotel was in a convenient location, and the staff were pleasant.Other than that there is nothing good to say about it. The rooms were not clean, with cigarette burns in the bedding. The mattress seemed about as old as the hotel, which is at least 50 years old, and the funiture was very tatty.
We had a beautiful time in Amsterdam, and the Hotel Amstelzicht was perfect for us. A cosy hotel, with a confortable bed, very clean, in the heart of the city and with a beautiful view from our room. Thank you. We enjoyed the experience very much !
Warm welcome, informative and efficient staff. Third floor room in annexe was clean and fairly quiet. Two rooms, perfect for our two young children.
I loved the spaciousness of the rooms, the location, and the view from my room. It faced the canal and made me happy to look out and watch the scene. It was a bit noisy. I also felt the amenities weren't quite there. Shampoo and soap would have been nice. I had to ask for hair dryer (but received one). And the internet wasn't reliable.
I booked a room in this hotel, but I get an appartment for the same price... Great...
Its location, very central, the rooms were spacious enough to accomadate two adults and two children comfortably. Be aware there are some very steep stairs going to the room :). It was a bit noisy, but it was in an entertainment area and this is to be expected.
The location of the hotel was excellent. We got bitten By creatures whilst in bed. Possibly bedbugs. The music from a nightclub was also very loud.
Awful and dirty room in the basement, with mouse and bloody bed cover. Terrible place with mouse in the room. It is unacceptable.
The only concern, was the checking in it seem too long and you did have 3 staff on. However th ques for checking in was getting longer as the staff seem to take telephone calls when attending to people checking in.
The staff Lack of information ,should make clear what the hotel offers .ie. breakfast not included no smoking signs ,never saw in rooms but rooms was clean and nice.
Location, freindliness of staff
Location, price, excellent staff and wonderful building... This was the third time I have stayed at this hotel, and on both previous occasions I was allocated a much larger room than this time around... This time, the room we were given felt a little cramped, especially the bathroom. Also, the room contained only one mirror, inside one of the wardrobe doors, and there was only one bedside table. I will definately use the hotel again in the future for its excellent location, condition and helpful staff, but my fondness for the hotel has been slightly reduced because of the size of our room.
This is the place to stay for visitors to Amsterdam. Great location near everything. Great restaurants and bars near by. One of the better coffee shops and smart shops just a minute away. Nothing.
2nd stay, had a bathtub this time ++ Central location. Clean. Cheap. We couldn't have a smoking room, even though we indicated a preference for one. The rooms all seemed to have been renovated with hard flooring which made adjacent rooms a lot more noisy.
easy to access all areas of amsterdam ( very central location) No, everything was great, i enjoyed my stay and will book thier again when i return to Asterdam.
location Could not open a window to get fresh air and air conditioning was not really adequate.
The bathrom was dirty with hair on the floor. Used soap in shower. Advertized free local calls and free wifi but was charged for both, for $200!
friendly helpful stuff , nice clean room everything very much ok ----
Proximity to Airport Staff forgetting to give voucher for shuttlebus resulting in pushy bus driver and wasted time..and €19 for breakfast when I just wanted small fruit? Far too expensive so no breakfast
Great Price, modern, free airport shuttle, friendly staff. A bit far away from downtown, but that is not why one would stay at an airport hotel.
I like the big size of everything Distance from airport and distance from city center
staff service food
The staff were quite curtious and pleasant. No delays accessing the room nor upon departure.
It was close to airport and the staff was helpful. It was clean. Loved the tea service. The lobby was pretty. Main thing for me was it was clean. I will pay more next time. The room didn't look like the pictures. I think you can upgrade to the newer rooms. Our room had stains on carpet and chairs and walls were scuffed up. I would say it was a 3 star hotel.
staff, food and room was very good
Information about material facilities(for example -sport centre etc.)
Hotel is very clean and close to airport. Hotel staff very, very friendly .
The staff is really friendly and caring. Although there was a problem with the lift and didnt work, the hotel try really hard to fix it as fast as they can. Very helpful people and very convenient location. Also just locates next to the canal make the view pretty to look at.
Location was very good. Room was clean and the breakfast was average. The walls were very thin. You could hear your neighbor showering or flushing the toilet. You can also hear people outside your room walking around. It didn't feel secure.
nice quiet enviroment no
position small room
Staff friendly and helpfull. Location good. An average-sized Hollander wouldn't have been able to use the toilet. The rooms was very small given the rate and the bed had to be nudged to open the door.
Location near Central Station is very good. (Three blocks). Front door desk quite helpful. Breakfast was sufficient. Room was querky, floor unlevel but overall room is okay compared to many in EU.
Location Staff Rooms very small in comparison to what was shown on the website... Breakfast was good but queuing for toast took ages as only one toaster for all guests...
friendly staff, wonderful place close to the city's center
The staff. Location. Breakfast choice is very poor. Toilet and shower in same space.
Excellent canalside location on Singel within 8 minutes walk of Centraal Station. Very friendly and helpful staff.
The hotel staff are very very friendly & helpful. It's the typical Ducth hospitability. Good work.
Very convinent near the station. Wi-Fi in some rooms is too weak.
We reserved airplane shutle bus. However, the shutle bus did not come and we pay more money to taxi to take our airplane
helpful staff, close to airport that the 'double bed' was 2 single beds pushed together
When my taxi did not turn up to get me to the airport, they arranged another reasonably quickly. I needed to use an iron/ironing board and these were not available. Not the nicest of areas.
Easy to find, parking place, accessible by public transport. Good breakfast. I have had a room on the top floor near something like aircon ventilation. It was noisy all night long and very annoying. Hotel is not new and it starts to be visible. I have managed to live with it.
the staff competence and amability, the comfort. A great hotel but for distance from center breakfast could be better and distance from town (45 mn)
Parking availabilty Smoke free room however could smell smoke from hall way
Free parking. Tram about 600 meters away went directly to Central station. the internet connection in my first room at the end of the hall was very poor. They moved to another room where then appeared to be stronger. However when I got into the room did tonight was also weak. I think signal was weak and cannot penetrate the cement. If I wanted internet I stood by the door.
Staff was professional and very helpful. Rooms were large and clean. Free Parking. Buying a transportation ticket at the reception made it easy for the transportation. Location is terrible. It is an 8 minute walk to the closest city transportation at a good pace and a 20 minute ride into town. If it is cold, it poses a problem. The night bus is inconsistant and the numbers changed without notice. We stood at the buis stop for 45 minutes in 28 degree F before we took a taxi (22 euro). (Not the hotels fault, but effects the overall stay).
Almost everything. Good facilities, excellent accommodation. Noththing
The rooms were really clean, the staff was polite and co-operative , overall a nice stay in this hotel The TV in the room was not working ,there was no fridge in the room and the breakfast was really expensive
the accommodation was good enough but there was no facility at the hotel to get a drink (alcoholic and non alcoholic) during the day, only at breakfast time and dinner time. as above
It's close to the centre and tram lines. The room was very nice and big. The bed was very comfortable. The steps are very steep. Our room was next to the toilet and shower so we always heard the other people going there.
Quiet but failry central location This hotel is actually an annexe of the Hotel Max round the corner. It is unstaffed and distinctly tatty - check in was at the other hotel but this is not indicated on the doors, just in the small print. No breakfast was available.
Small quiet Hotel on the outskirts of city centre friendly staff and great views of the river amstel
The original 4-person room was very spacious and clean. The triple we stayed in during our last night was disgusting, as was the shared bathroom. Furthermore, the 4-person room was not cleaned until 2 and a half hours after check-in time. And the staff was often not very helpful.
The reception is in another hotel "Max" (200 m away) that was mentioned in the hotel description or booking confirmation.
accessible near tram station carpets are dirty; no staff available in hotel
...that they started the heating in the second day, breakfast is fine On the first day no heating, the beds were uncomfortable, small space in the rooms, no soap,
The hotel was clean I was happily surprized.it was out of the busy nasty section but not too far from fun! Steep Stairs-- but then they are all like that, just know before hand and don't bring all your bags if possible!!
Light room The same problems as in most hotels in Amsterdam: if you want an acceptable price, that comes with shared bathroom and very small rooms.
just the location outside not clean not enough space in room, dirty and broken bath noisy ...
Great location The family room (for 5 persons) was very small.
nothing booking arrangement was terrible, there were lots of unexpected suprise when I actually got there. Room was supposed to be for 7 people dome but afterall ended up 9 people squeezed in, with still same amount of money that I paid for. (and of course no mention about 7 ppl dom before I got there) and so on.....
the location was great and it was good for that amount of money i didn't like the fact that you can hear everything next room it was a bit loud but everything else was great.also breakfast was ending way too early. don't get a room with breakfast b/c you cannot wake up;)
staff very helpful
very nice people,very new facilities, best location small room&bathroom with not very good lightning/air
Well localized, nice staff, comfortable beds, cozy. Could offer more breakfast variety.
Location, friendly staff, value for money.
The service was great, if I can afford to, Ill stay there again.
Hotel staff was more then nice and helpful For a "Junior suit" (as booked and paid), the room was too small
Great location, helpfull staff, nice interior, cleanliness, convinient bed, complimentary water and sweets every everning, channel and garden view, etc. - everything! To escape any delay connected with checking out the next morning, I was proposed to settle the formalities in the last everning.
Cleanliness, wonderful architecture and interior design, polite and proficient and friendly staff Nothing. It was perfect
disturbance during stay in room
I hated to leave. Staff and facilities were outstanding. Room was beautiful and luxurious.
While walking in the streets on a cold, windy, snowy, rainy day, the thought of going back to the hotel was pure happyness, as the hotel is so warm and cozy, It starts at the reception, continues in the corridors. Even the pool is warmer than all the pools in other hotels, I used it in the morning before breakfast and before going to bed at night. The extensive opening hours of the pool are a big advantage. The breakfast is the best I travel a lot, stay in nice hotels, none of them compares to this one...best juices, best fresh fruit, best bacon and eggs, best waffles. I loved the hotel tour, especially the wedding chapel and the other room with all the wood sculptures. I also liked the library with the fireplace. Everybody was extremely f I would have preferred a smaller and softer pillow
Hotel helps for every question asked and answers all in the perfect way. No dislikes.
Beautiful and comfortable hotel , Great helpful staff everything was great
The excellent staff and our gorgeous apartment to which we were upgraded Would not include breakfast again; though lovely and convenient it was very pricey given the area. Otherwise a perfect stay!
Absolutely first class service. Could not do enough for you. Extremely comfortable bed! -
The airport is very close to this hotel which is part of the reason we selected it; it has a shuttle bus which is convenient as we had only 13 hours between flights home to the states. No complaints
close to aeroport, clean not very family friendly.
No remarks it is an Ibis Hotel... nothing more... low cost but with Breakfast as an extra or anything else that you may get as standard in other hotels this hotel become as it is less attractive... Room service should be available...as a proper Restaurant Menu as well, not only badly grilled meat with frozen potato’s over fried pretending to be French fries... worst than any Mac... that’s all what it is available no matter which meal name you select...
Superb trip, a three night couples trip as a European city break perfectly comfortable and romantic trip. Staff were incredibley helpful especially on arrival to give details of the public transport that we have and advice on getting around the city, the shuttle bus was excellent and a great help. The only concern was probably that breakfast cost was a tad steep in comparison to the room, but the buffet style made the most of it. That's really the only slight downside, on the whole the cost was a good price
Lots of restaurants with fast food- quick and easy when you are on the move. The noise levels in the hotel are not good as the cleaners are working 24/7 and this is not good!!
The food and the shuttle service was good. The Wi-fi facility has to be improved as i was not happy with the service of T-Mobile Hotspot as it got disconnected after 10 minutes.
Good location & shuttle convenience. Good food in the restaurants in hotel premises. Housekeeping staff waked us in the morning for the cleaning the room which was highly unexpected. Over all it's ok.
Clean comfortable rooms; adequate facilities in the rooms; great for a quick stop-over; convenient airport transfer nothing
The free and frequent airport bus shuttle was great.
rounge there are no driyer.
The free shuttle, with frequent trips, was excellent. Always on time and never had to wait long for the next shuttle. Also started early so was able to get to airport to meet a 5:30am flight. N/A
Comfy bed, decent breakfast. Noise from outside room
Warm friendly atmosphere. A little far from the center and the action of leidesplein.
panorama view through glass wall of my room on the 6th floor to trdational Amsterdam houses and chanel. The disctrict is really quiet. The hotel is located very close to Van Gogh museum, my favorite place in Holland it takes almost 1 hour to get the hotel afoot from Central station. You need take a taxi
The hotel is very well located: just around the corner fr The Van Gogh museum and the Rijks, which were two of my favorites. the staff was very friendly as well. I would definitely stay there again.
Location + comfort
Very nice hotel, well situated nearby a tram stop. Big, clean and comfortable rooms (very quiet). Excellent breakfast, though rather expensive (as was the hotel itself). Would definitely stay there again if my budget allows it ......
A nice hotel with large rooms, good staff and a great location for the Museum Quarter. The hotel is also fully accessible for a disabled solo traveler. As a wheelchair user, it was inconvenient to have to ask each day for the towels to be left down.
Everything in Amsterdam was expensive considering I was using the American dollar which doen't seem to be worth much. The hotel was in a good location for walking to tourist attractions. The only complaint I had was the smoking in the hotel lobby and bar but I guess there are no restrictions in Amsterdam.
1) early check-in because I needed to sleep after trans Atlantic flight 2) location breakfast was not included in the price of the room
For European standards, it was very spacious and was the best hotel I have stayed at for under $150 Euros. Great value, good location and I would stay there again. Hotel room did not have dresser or microwave. (Microwave was available if you go down stairs).
Very nice location, only one block from the nearest tram line, very easy to get around the city. The rooms were also very large with plenty of room and a canal view. The breakfast was very expensive and the bed was not as nice as most NH hotel beds tend to be.
Location was good It was very dirty and smelly. The room had not been properly cleaned- it was dusty, the bathroom was mouldy and there was garbage under our bed. There was a mouldy, musky smell in the entire hotel, from the 2nd floor and above. We paid quite a bit of money to stay in this "4 star" hotel, but the hotel was no more than a 2 1/2 star in my opinion. I would note recommend staying here.
Size of room is excellent for location relative to city center. Property has good ammenties.
Nice Staff, Easy to get to, Clean rooms, Good Breakfast
Bed was ok. Staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. One female manager should not be working in hospitality at all and lied that there was a hairdryer in the room. After I had gone on a wild chase searching everywhere, her haughty response was "if there isn't a hairdryer then there isn't a hairdryer". She did not try to help me let alone apologise for her ignorance. Carpet was not very clean. In my opinion, the metro was not very close as it still took approximately 10min to walk there. I would not stay here again.
Felt secure and in a safe location compared to some of the city hotels. The staff were unfriendly and miserable.And it was quite expensive compared to the quality.
Friendly staff Free parking Relatively cheap No nearby shops or restaurants Nearest metro station is like 1 km which in rain and cold weather isn't the best experience
Clean rooms, helpfull hotel stuff, good food, reception oprend 24/7 Far from the City, distant from transport facilities, high prices, expensive breakfast
Good, clean businesslike hotel near a Metro Stop. If you have reason to be in that area and the price is right for you, go for it. Hotel is not where I needed to be and took taxis into town just because I didn't feel like dealing with the Metro. Also, the night I stayed there, a faulty alarm system locked us out of our rooms for that night.
nothing special That the Bar was closed at 1 a.m. but their were 30 people woh´s wanted to enjoy some drinks
Close to function for the evening in Amstel.
there was a light that did not work. hotel staff did not fix. only one towel for two people. no courtesy transportation to to trainstop nor to subway stop.
Green apples at the reception too cold, and staff took a long time to process an already paid service for 5 people.
friendly staff very expensive for breakfast
Stuff is kind.
it has free parking and there was a very nice, modern design and comfort hotel for all the hotel was far from the city center. internet access and some of favorite pay TV channels was very expensive
Near convention centre Expense
the room looks very nice :) The hotel served a variety of delicious and fresh breakfast. My friends and I enjoyed the stay there! A little far from city center.
Location was decent if you are travelling to amsterdam arena
No breakfast included in price
Convenient to RAI. Uncomfortable beds, antique hair dryers, slow and slight erratic elevators, long lines in reception, slow and error-prone room service
Breakfast No communication on parking option next to the hotel (much cheaper than Novotel)
Location and facilities. It was a beautiful hotel. We loved our room. It was great!
It a good hotel. One of the best in town. Good location, good room and view.
Location Room was not refurbished
great idea was the late checkout on the Sunday Staff very helpful and nice welcome on arrival- rooms were very clean and housekeeping staff did excellent job
Location is strategic, opposite train sation and nearby many attractions -
Location is excellent. I have stayed in numerous hotels in Amsterdam and the Barbizon is probably the best. NO
It was so easy. Without exception all the staff were as helpful and friendly as could be. Service was first rate. Between them the bars/restaurants and Room service provided a good variety of meals and experience, no chance to get bored there. I found the level of lighting a bit low/dull, particularly in the bedroom. I guess it is fine if you only sleep there, but not if you spend time in your room.
I had stayed at the Barbizon before and found that it was still up to the same high standards as previously experienced.
Nice rooms with large comfy beds. Great location just across from Central Station and the drop off point for the bus to and from the ferry. Staff were friendly and attentive and the price for the room was very reasonable. All in all a great hotel!
the room booked was'nt the same room that was shown on the pictures
The bedroom was very comfortable The first room I had was very noisy because the double glazing window was broken - they moved me to another room but I felt the first room should not have been available
