Nothing exceptional springs to mind Badly stocked mini bar. No 24 hour restaurant/coffee shop
The location Furnishing of the rooms
המלון עובר שיפוץ בלובי שלא ידענו בעת ההזמנה, אני חושב שזה פרט חשוב לדעת בעת ההזמנה, זה לא היה קריטי אבל רלוונטי. 25-5-2015
NH is the ground zero for Amsterdam
Location Scruffy corridors and dark bedrooms
Very relaxed friendly atmosphere
Top Location, Friendly Staff Rooms, even booked early and got a cheap price, do not match at all a 5 star hotel. The room rate compensated a bit for it, but definitely disappointed by a hotel which has such a famous name.
Check in/ out not very efficient
The location was the best thing. The rooms were small, inefficient handling of processes and nothing that made me feel it to be a "grand 5* hotel". They should take a lesson from Germans in Efficiency... or another grand hotel in their neighborhood.
We have stayed at this hotel twice now and it is in an excellent central location. The hotel reception is beautiful and the rooms are also in keeping with this. Our recent room was very clean, comfortable big bed and with all the amenities that you would expect. Prior to this we have stayed in one of the suites which are excellent but of course pricey. The general rooms are a good price - not the cheapest but you do get what you pay for. We didnt book the breakfast as this made the room price too expensive.
Calmness Had to pay EUR 100 for 4 days of broadband connection. Should be free inside the hotel.
The hotel staff were very friendly and responsive. We were upgraded to a nice room. The breakfast was fantastic, probably the best we had had in a long time. The location is perfect for any visitor and Amsterdam is one of the most picturesque cities in the world. Also to note, people in Amsterdam (including all the hotel staff) were extremely friendly and ready to help. Loved it!
the overall experiance
Great location near train station and city. Good views from the hotel. Room was large and bath was too! Room was dated.
Location was great. The room was clean and comfortable. The noise from the street was absurdly loud at all times of the night. The hotel provides earplugs by your bedside.
The location is great, opposite Centraal Railway station and you avoid the added cost and hassle of catching a cab to your hotel. Most tourist spots are within walking distance. Staff was great, they let us check in early and check out late which helped us a great deal. Some of the advertised facilities were not available during our stay but it did not really matter to us.
Very convenient location for sightseeing. Lots of good restaurant nearby Price a little high. But , compare to US, European hotel is usually higher.
Other than the location, this place really was just so-so. Most Marriott Courtyards are cleaner, more comfortable, and have much better service. For the price, however, it wasn't a bad deal and proximity to both Amsterdam Centraal and many tourist attractions made up for the lack of aesthetic appeal and customer service. Breakfast was not included and would be an addition $30/person. At that price, it should include a packed bong and tickets to the Van Gogh museum. Rooms were terribly outdated and not in a quaint Dutch way, but in an oddly 80's post-apocalyptic manner that made me question why I wasn't staying at a hostel. Our shower didn't even have a door or a curtain. 5 stars!? Are you kidding me? Europe must max out on a 10 star scale.
Best Staff ever very friendly and welcoming
Nothing The picture they show of the room is not even close to what I had to stay in. My room was old, smelled horrible, most of the lights did not work, and the shower head was broke. This has to be one of the worst experiences I have ever had in a hotel..
I spent two nights at the NH Barbizon and I only have positive things to say. It was a group of 5 friends and we couldnt be happier with our stay. The hotel in itself is beautifully decorated. The location is excellent across from Amsterdam Central and all the trolleys, but the best part of the hotel was the staff. Daniel helped my friends and I not only with our luggage, but with advice on getting around the city, recommendations for restaurants, and sightseeing. Overall great experience, and upon my return to Amsterdam I will definitely stay here and hope to get assistance from Daniel!
Good location, big and clean rooms,nice staff, value for money
Great location. great food, friendly staff. pricey
Paid extra for lounge Lounge didn't have food available all the time Lounge should open at 5 am We were with my handicap father and the hotel lobby is handicap accessible but it would be a real problem if he had to leave quickly.
Excellent location, which is why I would still recommmend it. Not particularly good value for money. There were rennovations taking place making the room a bit noisy duraing the day. 30 Euro pp breakfasts are too expensive and should have been included in the rate
I liked the location and the style of the room. We wanted to make some tea as it was quite cold in Amsterdam but there was no tea pot. We asked the service and it appeared the tea pot would cost us additional 6 euros. I think tea pot should not cost anything in the hotel of such level.
Great central location. Nice, business-class hotel with good facilities and service. Ask for room facing courtyard, which is quieter than street side. Kayak price of $170/nt incl (very good) breakfast was great deal for this property.
The location is perfect, walking distance from the train. We also walked both days from the hotel through the neighborhoods to the museum district and back. The breakfast and cocktail receptions were an added benefit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Amsterdam and couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Very comfortable, immaculate, great location, incredibly friendly and professional staff. Would definitely recommend this hotel for pleasure or business trip. nothing
Good location, helpful staff, nice bar.
Very central location, clean, friendly, well-furnished.
nothing Had booking confirmation in-hand. Manager asked a ton of questions, asked me to email her the confirmation, wasted a half hour till she finally told me the reservation cannot be honored because their reservation system was already closed, meaning they overbooked and refused my reservation after I already showed up at the hotel. They wasted my time. They were rude. They tried to blame me even though all i did was book online. They provided no assistance in getting a different room in the city. Awful experience. BE CAREFULL ON BUSY NIGHTS, THEY OVERBOOK.
Excellent all round! Will definitely stay here on future trips to Amsterdam. No iron or bathrobes!
Outstanding location. Excellent staff. We would use it again and plan to have FREIND's stay there in August
The location and the quality, cleaness of the hotel
WiFi did not work in my room (signal too weak) but worked well in lobby
Lovely comfortable room, nice decor, loved the dimming lamps. We had to queue to check in, and after our long journey to get there, we were tired and wanted to go up to our room as quick as possible.
Location Being overcharged/ They cached my deposit and failed to return it! (50 Euros)
The staff are excellent I do Think Ther price is high
Good colours, style of reception and breakfastroon was pleasant, fireplace at receiption were really nice. No fitness room at the hotel. Wholefloor carpet is not same style than other things. Corridors ugly.
Great staff knowledgeable about area and willing to answer questions and provide direction. Rooms are clean.
location, nice hotel
Hotel staffs were professional and polite. Free Wifi is a bonus! It will be nice if breakfast is included.
Excellent location, 3 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal
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.
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.
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, freindliness of staff
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.
The location is very good. The bathroom was really old.
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.
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 best things in the hotel are the free minibar, the location and the helpful concierge employee mr.Roel Smits. Overall my staying in the hotel did not meet my expectation (I expected more for what I paid).
Art Nouveau hotel;you need to like it to enjoy the hotel,which is beautifull than ; large rooms, well equiped (surprising free of charge minibar, including alcool),nice restaurant and buffet breakfast(a little bit expensive) ,beautifull spa with swimingpool.Close to the railwaystation,at the border of the old centrum. Reception not "5 stars" due to small office,waiting time if some other people arriving simulteanously , and to few personnel at the concierge office !
Close to everything including ships
it was an amazing hotel ,the room was superb , the hotel is located neer by the sentral station i liked everything
The Hotel Amrath is a jewel among luxury hotels--beautiful architecture inside and out; clean, spacious comfortable rooms; great accommodating staff; and centrally located so one can walk everywhere. Don't miss the gorgeous pool and spa.
Beautiful hotel, great architecture, friendly staff, facilities in room (like nespresso machine, free minibar and great bed), right in the city centre, reasonable prices for food and drinks. Just a small thing: the hotel is a bit of a maze, takes a bit to figure out how to get from your room to the reception, but the staff told me that new signs will be there soon
everything it waas a very nice stay more light in the room. That's my only remark. Please do something about this because it's too dark in the room!!!
The Staff, The atmosphere, the cleanliness, and the service...
good area and historical building
Please write at least 15 words
A different and positive Amsterdam experience. Great location and facilities.
The building is an antique that seems to recently been rejuvenated. It's important to keep this in mind when coming here, because the place is not a modern hotel, and so some modern things may be missing. For example, the elevators could be quite awkward and I cannot imagine how the floors are handicap accessible. That said, the bathrooms were brand new and quite nice. And finally, they throw in a full, FREE mini-bar. It's a bit expensive, and going up and down stairs can be annoying with luggage.
Three adults, including myself, stayed here a day before and after a cruise. The hotel was a great price and offered three single beds and a very large bathroom. Being from the U.S. with limited public transportation where I live, I did not realize that the tram is different than the train. We thought we could take the tram to and from the airport and port, but you need to take a taxi, so that was a little disappointing. The tram is an excellent way to get downtown, though. You pay right on the tram, 7.50 Euros for 24 hours. The staff was extremely helpful in giving directions regarding navigating the city and helping answer a variety of questions. They even ordered taxi pick up for us. No cotton washcloths No alcohol on the premises Small refrigerator No ice? Limited dining in the area Must take a taxi to/from airport or port, the train is too far to walk with luggage The price the hotel quoted us for the taxi was incorrect. The taxi companies charged more.
Very comfortable I did not get a wakeup call on one day, even though I requested one. Date: July 28,2007
Great Location, nice facilities in the rood, good staff, very nice in general The waitress in the reastarant was once high :) Breakfast is too expensive.
the sauna The price of the breakfast was a bit too much, the rooms were already expencive enough to include breakfast.
Very good location; in the centre, but in a calm street. I liked the canal view from my room. Very good shuttle service to the airport. I needed someone to explain me how to switch on the central switch in order to have all electric appliances (including the lights) to work. It should be either connected to the opening of the door or made more clear. There was something strange with the pipes of the tap in the bathroom.
People at frontera desk were really helpful, nice bar área rooms are modern and comfortable
Gorgeous interior in the heart of the old city. Breakfast was incredible and sumptuous. Staff are warm, friendly, and attentive. Location is fantastic. 1. Heating was a major problem. 2. Parking is a nightmare. 3. Shower hot water not as hot as it should be. 4. Complimentary coffee in the lobby area is absent, though one can pay EUR 2-2.50 for a cup. Should be gratis. Once this is attended to, this will be able to achieve deserved greatness.
Superb location, friendly and attentive staff, clean and comfortable. A very good value.
The location is very good. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, there are many adventures to find that are just a short walk away.
The business suite was very nice: great bedding, spacious. The staff were helpful. The lobby had electrical and usb outlets. My room was in a construction zone accessible only by stairs!! And construction resumed right outside in the morning. They shouldn't put people there, or should start construction later in the day. I also found it a little odd that there would be no usb jack in a business suite.
Location is very good. In the heart of the city. Few minutes walk from the dam square. Breakfast is very good and not too expensive. Air condition is not working in the room. Business rooms are in another building across the street. Rooms are small and not too comfortable. Parking costs 55 euros per day The room is expensive comparing to any other such an hotel in Europe. I was expecting much more...
situation géographique et le hall This is the list of the main bad points :
The staff was friendly & helpful we had a tram stop 5 minutes from the hotel that takes you to central Amsterdam you can buy day passes right at the Hotel.The breakfast bar was good but it's not cheap the same goes for the dinner.We ate in small cafes while touring Amsterdam it's a lot cheaper that way. No washcloth in the bathrooms they don't use them in Amsterdam so bring your own.Parking was 15 euros per day unless you can find a spot outside.
Great rate (much less than hotels downtown) and included free breakfast, wifi and had friendly helpful people who all spoke English. We did not realize that we would have to take a tram to the downtown part of Amsterdam where everything was located. If arriving with suitcase from train station, go out the BACK door of Central station and then go down stairs below and look for Tram 12 to get to hotel (2 stops) If not, it's a 10 min walk but a bit tricky initially to find. To go to the Airport, we had to take Tram 12 to Central Station and then the Train 1 stop to the airport. To go to the area of Amsterdam where most of the museums were, we had to take Tram 12 (near hotel & comes frequently) and then change to Tram 6. Since we were there for only 2 days we'd rather just step outside of our hotel and be in walking distance without public transportation. The hotel is basically in suburbia. (About 15 min or so into the City though.) The only option for dinner is their $29 buffet. There is a restaurant 5 min away, Cafe Pistau though that is excellent).
The tram is right outside of the hotel. Very convenient for traveling to the train station. There was also a store that was close by as well.
Location is awesome, ca. 20 mins to the old city with tram, tram station is just few steps away from hotel, if you come back late after 1:00 in the night, there is a bus connected Breakfast is good, 15 euro is cheap for Amsterdam.. Actually no
Great staff, one not so friendly but hey! This is Amsterdam! The rest more than made up for her. Very clean. Very modern. Very COMFORTABLE. Transportation into city center was not bad at all with bus and tram station nearby and a main train station within a 12 minute walk. Pay for breakfast, pricey but worth it. Everything was great, I plan to return and recommend to all my friends and family.
Good location. Not very modern. Adds 10 years to your life. People 50+ loves it I guess...
Loved the hotel and the staff were incredible. Will always stay there in the future. Room are small but beautiful. Rooms facing the canal had very little storage space.
The beautiful classic design interiors. The room as well.
Location, interior design, breakfast, coffee/cakes, most staff Poor window, let in a lot of street noise, with what we paid for 2 nights (c.€380) they could buy a double glazed window (about 4 ft by 3 ft) which would be a big benefit for future users of the room. While most staff were friendly, the receptionist we mostly dealt with was businesslike/efficient rather than friendly. (my wife might use different words!)
Everything was excellent. Beautiful old world charm, large spacious room, staff was outstanding in every way with help on questions, places to eat and see and making reservations. No
Location, Lounge, Coffee and goodies at reception Beds hard
Well situated hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably comfortable bedroom, although small. Nice clean and well appointed bathroom. Hotel bedroom was rather small and paintwork on windows peeling.
Great view overlooking the Singel Canal Friendly atmosphere Brilliant location
Cosy, friendly staff. No problems no free wifi
The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very kind. My brother lives in Paris and is recommending the Hotel Estherea to any of his friends/associates who are planning to visit Amsterdam. The bar wasn't open until the evening. I would have liked to have a cocktail after I checked in...but there were plenty of places around there to have one - so it was not a big deal.
Location!!! Great breakfast with a selection of delicious food!. THe staff was also very helpful. The beds are little to narrow and too soft for me. The water in the shower never became hot, just warm.
excellent location, staff, breakfast, great rooms no
location, staff customer service I had to go home early!
breakfast and location no air conditioning also step to bathroom
The check-in staff (those specific two) they were great fun and welcoming and the cat. The hot (cold!!!) water in the morning and the explanations received at reception (i.e. a once off incident) not true. Every morning same issue all week-end. The lift- you can age 20 years waiting for it.
friendly staff & excellent buffet breakfast no room service
I like the location, the services and the cleanliness of my room. The room was reely small.
The staff was very cooperative The room was very small
Location and late breakfast No tea/cofee facilities in room
i found it very nice andthe staff were very helpful also the breakfast was lovely
Excellent sympathetic staff, flexibility on requests and prompt aid on any question. Close to center (well located) and nice view. Old style equipments (furniture and heating), beds too soft (easily twist back) and twin beds on double rooms.
The staff are fabulous! Hotel has wonderful history. It was the home of Rembrandt's Nightwatch. The location is very central to all Amsterdam sites. The breakfast is incredible. It is one of the best places I have ever stayed!
Great staff and good location.
The hotel was nice and the rooms were well sized. Can't really complain. Great location and price for the time of year. Bathrooms and beds were clean. We did have to do some rearranging of the furniture to get some more space between my friend and I, and ended up finding a large amount of dust under the TV stand. Lift was out of order.
The location is excellent. The construction work in front of hotel.
the hotel staff, and the hotel is close to important places
The location was excellent, surely in view of the visit to an exhibition tot the Hermitage Museum, but also in view of the lively neighborhood. No complaints
Location and staff Facilites, Cleanliness
location they gave us a room with a shared balcony on the first floor which ment that who ever could have free access in our room through the balcony. we explaned the problem and asked them to assign us an another room with no balcony and what they gave us was a room next to the old one: sure there was no balcony but a window, always looking onto the same balcony, common to other clients. i work in the hotel business too and i have never seen such a dusty and unclean hotel room in my life. our stay was short and this is why i didn't want to waiste my time looking for an another place to stay otherwise i would have done it. this hotel needs a completely renovation and is no worth of its four star.
Location Rooms are far too small for that price. Poor furnishings, tiny bathroom, no concierge, place is in dire need of an update
The location was good for access to all of the city's attractions. The roadworks immediately outside the hotel and bedroom were intrusive, extremely annoying and unattractive. The only compensation offered by the staff was a pair of free ear plugs and a free drink at another hotel! The furnishings in the room were old, tired and shabby. the bed was stained and in places the room was unclean. The shower was poor. Their was no bar, and the reception looked less than 4 star. This is not a 4 star hotel, and I will be writing to the dutch authorities to question this rating. As such the details are misleading.
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
I hated to leave. Staff and facilities were outstanding. Room was beautiful and luxurious.
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!
disturbance during stay in room
Hotel staff was more then nice and helpful For a "Junior suit" (as booked and paid), the room was too small
Hotel helps for every question asked and answers all in the perfect way. No dislikes.
Absolutely first class service. Could not do enough for you. Extremely comfortable bed! -
Beautiful and comfortable hotel , Great helpful staff everything was great
The service was great, if I can afford to, Ill stay there again.
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
The hotel was pretty fine, clean and with good style. Very close to the center. The room was big enought for all family. We didn't got any breakfast at hotel, but during the boat cruise, the stop is very close to the hotel. Miss the boiler for have some tea in the room. The remote control of TV almost died.
good location, great comfortable beds and nice gym and sauna area
central position for visiting amsterdam Impersonal feeling with pseudo design furniture
Great geographic location Fee parking for the car Fitting out of the hotel entry not indicated on website. Worse soundproofing of the room windows.
location There internet.
Location and staff Internet services not included in package
very comfortable bed and soft sheets front door was not working so had to use side door
hotel staff and clean the Spa
Nothing !!! Center of Amsterdam
soft and comfirtable bed You have to pay for everything such as internet, phone calls, TV, etc. Service was poor. Prices are relatively much higher than other similar hotels.
I moly took off one star because they weren't very understanding of my accidental booking. Because of the change in time coming from the US, I booked for an extra day without realizing we actually get to amsterdam the next day!! They said because I booked through a third party they couldn't do anything but they could have given something complimentary to offset it. Of course it was my fault but still. The hotel was clean and they were very accommodating on the other hand, they help with booking events for you and give you a crib for a baby if you ask. They also have toothpaste if you forget yours and have European charging adapters to loan Not understanding
Room,staff, view No room-service, still Not every think ready
The close proximity to the train station and central Amsterdam Poorly designed rooms with ikea type furniture and cheesy gimmicks
Friendly staff, clean, modern. Location very good for tourists (close to Centraal Station, center of city) A bit pricey, but really no faults.
Very modern, with a very bed and setting and very nice bathroom. Excellent value for the money. The location is a bit out of the center.
Great staff, new modern and clean
Everything: decor, the room, the staff, services not much in the immediate area but everything else is on 5 min away
The free cookie, the Apple Mac in the room, the proximity to the station Courtyard rooms have no view, the restaurants and bars are expensive, all a bit impersonal and large scale
Hotel's position, room's comfort Room's view on the station end the noise of train during all day and night
Beautiful atmosphere, nice staff and amazing location Breakfast was poor and very expensive.
Excellent location. Little noisy, little dirty:)
location, service, and room were great. We paid 30 euro extra at the hotel and had one of the two rooms we booked upgraded. one of the two rooms we booked was on the first floor. At first it looked terrible, but ended up being fine and three older kids stayed there and liked it. We stayed in a room that we paid 30 euro to upgrade to.
I spent there 4 nights with my wife, daughter and two grandchildren (5 and 14 years old). What impressed us most was the unique atmosphere of relax in the most heart of the city, unbelievably delicious cuisine at 238 restaurant and very comfortable pillows!!!! No, everything was perfect
The Pulitzer was recently redesigned and it exceeded my expectations in almost every way. The location can't be beat. It's in a very smart area in Amsterdam with great bars, shops, and restaurants nearby. The design of the hotel is very chic. The interior courtyard garden is amazing. Everything was perfect except service at restaurant Jansz. Everyone was well intended but some people (hostess) abandoned post for several minutes and people were left waiting to be received and, &! My case, to collect my coat. This is one area of operation to inspect. Otherwise, everything was so perfect. I've stayed also at the Dylan hotel and Waldorf and I would say that this hotel is better than Waldorf because the design is so smart and not generic like Waldorf. And I would say it's equal to the Dylan. Dylan is also chic but has a more classic design inspiration. Stay here while it's still affordable. I imagine rates will increase once reviews and bookings start coming in.
great location, walking distance to most things, nice garden too much renovation, halls not very attractive
We had a very nice room with a view on the canal;
The location is very good, having a good access to anywhere from the tram station close to the hotel. The staff is indeed capable and courteous, but I rather wish them to be more leisurely.
The Pulitzer offers old world charm, excellant service, and all the luxury in modern accommodations anyone could ask for, I was thrilled with the hotel, and the morning breakfast was par excellance. The location of the hotel was for us, perfect. I just can't say enough. I've stayed with the Pulitzer before this trip and I will definately stay there again when I return to Amsterdam. I am in the restaurant business in the US, and because I work so hard at creating a special atmosphere and serving my guests well, I am very appreciative when traveling to be treated so well. . The Pulitzer does it right, from check in the check out! Thank you! Absolutely NO Complaints or suggestions.
The location. Lots of dislikes and for the price we paid, it is not close to the value that it should be.
Stayed here for business and it was great. All the required services and internet were available. As for comfort, the bed was perfect. My only discomfort was that it can get a bit too warm at night despite the heater being off. Also, I have to say that the hotel is beautiful and in a very nice location. It is very easy to find your bearings to find your way back and feel safe even late at night. Would definitely stay here again.
found the hotel to be the perfect location for our vacation in amsterdam. many of the things we wished to see were in walking distance and if not the hotel was very quick to arrange transportation for us. thought the room could be just a little fancier in appearance for the amount of money charged. otherwise - very confortable
