Barbizon Palace — Unique Architecture

Nineteen 17th Century Houses and a 15th Century Chapel

Barbizon Palace in Amsterdam, constructed from nineteen 17th century houses and a 15th century chapel, is an NH Hotels property. The hotel interior is a blending of exquisite centuries-old architecture and modern touches while the chapel is home to the conference center.

There are several transportation options at Barbizon Palace. Limousine or town car service is available and the train station is nearby. For guests arriving at the hotel by boat, the property has a private boat landing dock. The hotel provides transportation at a surcharge for guests arriving at Amsterdam International Airport (Schipol), if requested from the concierge before arrival. A surcharge is also assessed for valet parking and self-parking. The hotel rents bicycles, mopeds, and scooters.

Hudson’s Terrace & Restaurant provides a sumptuous breakfast buffet. The restaurant serves regional and international cuisine for lunch and dinner. Many guests enjoy Hudson’s high tea. Restaurant Vermeer serves French Mediterranean cuisine, including vegetarian selections, for dinner only.

Barbizon Palace has a fitness center, sauna, and steam room. Biking and hiking trails are nearby.

Pillow Menu in All Guest Rooms

Barbizon Palace, in the Old Centre district of Amsterdam, provides premium bedding, down comforters, and a choice of pillows (via a pillow menu) in all guest rooms. The rooms have free Wi-Fi, cable television with pay movies, a minibar, desk, safe, and coffee/tea maker. Room types range from standard single rooms accommodating one person to standard double rooms, deluxe rooms, junior suites, and suites. Fully-furnished apartments are in a building next to the hotel.

Convenient Old Centre Location

Barbizon Palace is across the street from Central Station, Amsterdam’s main train station. Dam Square, the capital city’s town center, is five minutes away, where tourist attractions such as the Royal Palace and the National Monument, a memorial for the victims of World War II, are located.

A number of churches (and former churches) are in the Dam Square area. The Basilica of Saint Nicolas, Amsterdam’s major Catholic house of worship, is minutes away from the hotel. Also nearby is the Calvinist Oude Kerk (Old Church), founded in 1213. Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) is part of a 15th century group of buildings next to the Royal Palace on Dam Square. Nieuwe Kerk’s buildings host Dutch royal investitures and weddings, organ recitals, and other art and cultural exhibitions.

The Bottom Line

The nearby Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel has some amenities and services similar to those at Barbizon Palace, but the room rates are higher. The hotel doesn’t have a fitness center or pillow menu and it doesn’t offer free Wi-Fi in the guest rooms.

Barbizon Palace’s use of a 15th century chapel and 17th century houses in creating the hotel has helped preserve the history of the Old Centre district of Amsterdam while breathing life into the area. Guests appreciate the many transportation options available as well as the excellent food at Hudson’s Terrace & Restaurant, which also provides vegetarian food choices.

Expert Reviews
Location is excellent, with great transport links and most of Amsterdam's attractions within walking distance
Built behind the facades of 19 traditional canal houses, it's fully modern and efficient inside, and loaded with amenities.
Time Out
A flash branch of the reliable, homegrown NH chain, the Barbizon is right opposite Centraal Station, so ideal if you want to hop off the train laden with luggage.
