Absolutely nothing it ruined my trip
The property was small which expected for the price but upon arriving the reception area was empty and smelt like cigarette smoke once getting into our room my partner noticed the towels had black hand marks told reception who said they will sort it through out our 2 night see enquires 3 times to still be given no clean towels. The window in the room was unsafe and had to be lifted to be closed securely, the shower flooded the room also. The fully stocked vending machines supplying 24hr food and drink were empty. On checking out of the property we explained how unhappy we were and said she would remove towel hire from our bill. Rude staff who think showering is not a necessity. No shops or anything close by and is most definitely not in walking distance from central station as stated. Avoid this place save your money!!!!!
Great location, very helpful staff who allowed me to keep my baggage for longer after the check-out. Clean bed, bathroom, nice window, and view.
It was extremely hot in the apartment, no airflow and humid - I felt very unwell in such conditions. I would recommend to the hotel to get small fans for the summer. Thankfully I only stayed for one night, I wouldn't be able to do more. Also, there was no soap in the soap dispenser.
Good customer service and very friendly staff and clean room and good night sleep
Very friendly staff
Bed was comfy.
Shower room smelt of blocked drains and wasnt powerful. For a last minute booking it wasnt awful, but not worth €79 per night.
Great value for money : nice staff, well cleaned everyday, great location. Room was small but at that price, I wouldnt expect much more located like this in Amsterdam. Floor was quiet and we had 1 bathroom (toilet + shower together) shared only between 2 small rooms. Check in/out were easy, we could also leave our luggage for a couple of hours in the lobby.
The room was a little bit small but it was alright for the price we payed. Maybe a hook in the shower would be appreciated? Also no shower curtain, so the floor was often wet. One night, the wifi wasnt working.
With a stay at Hotel Barbacan Amsterdam, you'll be centrally located in Amsterdam, just a 4-minute walk from Artis and 5 minutes by foot from Hortus Botanicus. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and luggage storage.
