Stayed at this hotel six times. There doesn't seem to be a way to figure out the larger rooms. I say this because having stayed so many times my room size has varied almost every time. Same contemporary furnishings. Two very small pillows. You can get more if you call housekeeping. Sometimes there's an extra in the closet. Two twin beds pushed together to make one large one. If you are from U.S. you can ask for a converter box. It's a very large box that can only be plugged in, in the bedroom. Which means this time I have no access to a mirror for curling my hair. Flat screen T. V., hair dryer, fridge, coffee maker,iron and board. Large deep tub. Some rooms are older which makes the tub old but still large. Shuttle bus to take you downtown. Sandwiches sold in the lobby. Bar and restaurant. Okay service. I go elsewhere. Pizza across the street at E cafe very good. ATM across the property. Two grocery stores within ten minute walk, Albert hein and Durks. Ten minute walk to ferry that you can also take to downtown. Front desk can be detached and cold most of the time. But they get the job done. Everyone speaks english that I've talked to at hotel. From front desk to housekeeping.

This hotel is away from the busy city of downtown Amsterdam but not too far as it is about a 15 minute walk to the ferry terminal and then a FREE ride to the Central Station. Side note: this is not so great when it is raining. There is an ATM a few feet from the hotel along with a few smaller restaurants, and markets. This is in a residential neighborhood, and they have a shuttle that transports you for free from the NH Barizon Palace to the hotel from 10am to 11pm at night. The rooms were large and quite, the staff was helpful but the maid service needs improvement.

Was looking for a hotel near city center with parking and for a good price.
We had all this and more, good price because had a great deal, nice room with big LCD screen.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful and using the shuttle you're in no time in the city center.

This hotel is only a 10 min (free) shuttle ride from their sister hotel The NH Barbizon (which is across the road from Central Station). The hotel itself was clean and very comfortable. The rooms were bright, clean and comfortable with aircon, a fridge for snacks and drinks and a huge superkingsize bed! The hotel also offers free DVD rental for your room and free 15 min PC use.
PS...If you feel peckish late at night! I would thoroughly recommend 'Mesir Doner', a clean, friendly, bright little cafe across the road, open late and serving the most amazing Kebabs and Pizzas!!

We arrived at the hotel after booking on easytobook.com.

When we arrived, the hotel couldn't find any record of our reservation. Easytobook.com had taken the order but not passed it onto the hotel. Immediately, the lady on the desk told me what had happened, said that they would try to get to the bottom of it, and assured me that there would be somewhere to stay for us. A few minutes later she had sorted it out (by ringing head office and logging into easytobook's computers to find our records) and she upgraded us to a king size room, and even threw in a balloon for our toddler.

Overall, the staff here were the friendliest and most helpful we have come across in any hotel.

The outside of the hotel looks a bit drab, but the inside is lovely. The king size room was very large with a massive bathroom, all stylishly decorated in contemporary decor. There was a TV with some english channels in the room. The bed was super comfortable. Shower good. They provided a cot for our toddler too.

There is a restaurant and bar but we didn't use them.

The hotel is slightly out of the centre but there are two ways to get there.
1. Take the free shuttle bus which goes from the hotel entrance to the NH Brabizon hotel opposite the railway station downtown. It is 10 minutes ride and the bus goes from 10am to 11.45pm (i think).

2. Walk 15-20 minutes to the river and pick up the free water taxi that takes you across to the centre.

We opted for the bus.

There is a market just across the road from the hotel on Wednesday mornings.

Features that we found great:
Free parking for guests
Free shuttle bus every 15 mins (10 mins ride) to Town Centre.
Breakfast is available if required: 19 euros pp. We didn't have it
Free Wifi in lobby
Beautiful modern interior design. Very spacious

We have no complaints at all with this hotel.

The N H Galaxy is a very nice hotel that is tucked away just a few miles from the downtown Amsterdam area. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They offer complimentary shuttle service into the city that drops off in front of the N H Barbazon. The drop off point is an excellent location to walk to various restaurants and all other activities that may be on your list of things to do such as tours. The rooms are very clean and very modern. They have a mini fridge in each room too. My family of four had a short stay here. We had two rooms with double beds each. The double beds are pushed together and appear a king bed, but the sheets are made up on each one as separate. It worked out fine. We would definitely stay here again! They gave a great room rate.

This is a great hotel for anyone who wants a good quality room for a decent price but doesn't mind staying a bit out of the city centre. The rooms are nicely decorated (recently refurbished) with good facilities (DVD player, safe, fridge). Hotel facilities are good (free bag drop, free wifi and use of the computers in the lounge) with friendly staff. There is a bar and restaurant on site, we didn't use these but they looked good from the outside (happy hour in the bar from 5 to 7pm).

The location is on the north side of the IJ river so you are a bit out of things but this made the stay all the better (it is located in a quiet residential area). I've stayed in the centre of Amsterdam many times before and the noise can sometimes get a bit tiresome. There is a free hotel shuttle to the centre but we didn't use this as the 34 and 35 bus stops pretty much outside the hotel and takes about 7 mins to get to Centraal Station.

Would stay here again without hesitation.
