NH is the ground zero for Amsterdam
Calmness Had to pay EUR 100 for 4 days of broadband connection. Should be free inside the hotel.
Location Scruffy corridors and dark bedrooms
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
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.
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
The location Furnishing of the rooms
Very relaxed friendly atmosphere
Nothing exceptional springs to mind Badly stocked mini bar. No 24 hour restaurant/coffee shop
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.
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!
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!
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 overall experiance
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..
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.
Great location near train station and city. Good views from the hotel. Room was large and bath was too! Room was dated.
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.
location, nice hotel
Excellent location, 3 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal
The staff are excellent I do Think Ther price is high
WiFi did not work in my room (signal too weak) but worked well in lobby
The attitude and helpfulness of staff was very good. Cleanliness and presentation was good The location suited us very well The breakfast room was too much of a crush and could have been laid out better. The afternoon coffee and evening bar facilities were given low priority.
Great staff knowledgeable about area and willing to answer questions and provide direction. Rooms are clean.
Hotel staffs were professional and polite. Free Wifi is a bonus! It will be nice if breakfast is included.
Excellent all round! Will definitely stay here on future trips to Amsterdam. No iron or bathrobes!
Location Being overcharged/ They cached my deposit and failed to return it! (50 Euros)
The location and the quality, cleaness of the hotel
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.
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!!!

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 !
it was an amazing hotel ,the room was superb , the hotel is located neer by the sentral station i liked everything
Good comfortable rooms Hotel still being refurbished, so some things not yet finished in hotel and the room. i.e. no toilet door and shower leaked badly as door seal seemed to be missing. However, the room was comfortable and the bed was simply delightful.
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
A different and positive Amsterdam experience. Great location and facilities.
The Staff, The atmosphere, the cleanliness, and the service...
good area and historical building
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.
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.
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).
Very central location, clean, friendly, well-furnished.
Good location, big and clean rooms,nice staff, value for money
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.
Great location. great food, friendly staff. pricey
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
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.
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.
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.
Good location, helpful staff, nice bar.
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
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.
The location is very good. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, there are many adventures to find that are just a short walk away.
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...
the sauna The price of the breakfast was a bit too much, the rooms were already expencive enough to include breakfast.
Superb location, friendly and attentive staff, clean and comfortable. A very good value.
People at frontera desk were really helpful, nice bar área rooms are modern and comfortable
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.
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.
Very comfortable I did not get a wakeup call on one day, even though I requested one. Date: July 28,2007
situation géographique et le hall This is the list of the main bad points :
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.
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.
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
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.
Location, Lounge, Coffee and goodies at reception Beds hard
Great view overlooking the Singel Canal Friendly atmosphere Brilliant location
Cosy, friendly staff. No problems no free wifi
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, 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!)
The beautiful classic design interiors. The room as well.
Good location. Not very modern. Adds 10 years to your life. People 50+ loves it I guess...
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.
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.
I like the location, the services and the cleanliness of my room. The room was reely small.
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.
Location and late breakfast No tea/cofee facilities in room
location, staff customer service I had to go home early!
friendly staff & excellent buffet breakfast no room service
i found it very nice andthe staff were very helpful also the breakfast was lovely
The staff was very cooperative The room was very small
breakfast and location no air conditioning also step to bathroom
excellent location, staff, breakfast, great rooms no
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.
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
Beautiful and comfortable hotel , Great helpful staff everything was great
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.
Absolutely first class service. Could not do enough for you. Extremely comfortable bed! -
Hotel helps for every question asked and answers all in the perfect way. No dislikes.
Hotel staff was more then nice and helpful For a "Junior suit" (as booked and paid), the room was too small
disturbance during stay in room
I hated to leave. Staff and facilities were outstanding. Room was beautiful and luxurious.
The service was great, if I can afford to, Ill stay there again.
Cleanliness, wonderful architecture and interior design, polite and proficient and friendly staff Nothing. It was perfect
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!
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.
The location is excellent. The construction work in front of hotel.
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 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!
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.
Location Rooms are far too small for that price. Poor furnishings, tiny bathroom, no concierge, place is in dire need of an update
the hotel staff, and the hotel is close to important places
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.
Location and staff Facilites, Cleanliness
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 price are great. Nothing
Excellent location to have as your base for your Amsterdam adventure! Everything superb
Really, really quiet rooms and amazingly comfy beds. :-) In a great spot for exploring the city. For the price, breakfast could have been included.
It was near everything in the city no
The spacious room and the breakfast. The view from our room and no toaster provided to public during breakfast.
Very nice room, good bed.
The friendliness of the staff and the promptness to respond to requests. The room was alwas very clean. This hotel is in an excellent location. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again
very nice hotel near Central station may the best confortable you can find in this aera
EVERYTHING, FROM THE MOMENT I WALKED IN UNTIL THE CHECK OUT. GREAT HOSPITALITY AND CLOSE TO THE DAM SQUARE AND CENTRAL STATION NOTHING
The location of this hotel is excellent, easy walking distance from train station, restaurants, Red Light District, coffeeshops, regular shops, bars and fast-food places. If you're going further a field then trams are just round the corner. Nothing
Very good location, Nice minibar, Friendly staff I was not given a good room from the beginning. I lost too much time to give us an acceptable room.
Comfort of room and helpful staff
This is a luxurious hotel located in the part of the Amsterdam. The service, the food and the staff were among the best that we have ever seen. We would love to go back there again.
The fact that the hotel is located in a central area. The hotel has very good facilities.
The position is quite good. The bed is very comfortable. The hotel is far from being a five stars level. Small rooms, old furniture, noisy, no complimentary services, poor level of service staff. The price paid is too high for what you get.
Everything was of a high level No
Attentive and courteous staff - lovely room with views over city - would definitely stay there again.
The hotel in general, the room, view, location, staff breakfast was too expensive and too poor
The service was amazing! Roland was the best concierge ever. He really made our trip fabulous! Everyone was so friendly Nithing
The staff were professional and extremely pleasant. The location was perfect to see everything Amsterdam has to offer.
Its central location, its friendly helpful staff, its comfortable rooms and pleasant atmosphere and there was no language barrier.
Location The breakfast that is supposed to be included is just teas and coffees. You have to pay extra for a cooked breakfast even if your room rate says breakfast is included. The radio in the room started playing on its own early in the morning for no reason, extremely loudly. When we called down for a porter to switch it off, it took him 10-minutes to stop it playing. This woke us up and we couldn't get back to sleep. The staff didn't seem to care about such a major inconvenience.
