One of the many squares in Amsterdam. Surrounding it are all the bars, coffee houses & hotels. Nice to sit in the square and admire the people or grab a seat by one of the bars and have a drink. Loud & lively and doesn't die down until late in the night. Well worth a visit or two.

Since our hotel was one block away from Rembrandt Square, we spent a lot of time in and around the square. I am sure it's the loudest area of the city with many people of all ages and persuasions contributing. We ate twice in restaurants around the square, but as can be expected, they were of mediocre quality. We did... More

Great centre area. Lovely square. Perfect for any stay in this lovely city. Can be a bit noisy thru the night tho. Your about 7 mins for central station and trams go everywhere. Tho to be honest walk its a beautiful city and you'll be surprised how close everything is.

I loved this area of Amsterdam. We were lucky enough to have nice clear skies on this day after 2 days of torrential a thunder and lightning! Lots of rings to go see and do. Bars and restaurants to suit any palette. Great buzz to the area. Loved it

This open square has some jolly large scale bronzes and on the Sunday we were there an art market. It is surrounded by cafes and bars. Unbeknown to me it has some of those cafes! Judging by the racket in our adjacent hotel the nightlight at the weekend is long and noisy.

Situated 1 km outside Amsterdam center (red light District and Central station) this area has several hotels and plenty of pubs, bars and coffe shops. Nothing fancy, but something for most peoples taste. Mostly younger people. On the Sunday we were there they had an art bazar on the square. The are seemed safe and we never saw or heard... More

Yep, thats right, Our room over looked Rembrandtplein and considering the crazy loud music, it was worth it for this. It a fantastic statue ith lots of history and if you within the area, go check it out! The day we came was Orange day and this square was crazy full and very entertaining.

Loved this area and preferred it to both Dam Square and Leidseplein!! Great place to relax and watch the world go by. Lots of places to eat although some did not look very appealing! I always pack something to eat and found it more enjoyable to sit and eat our own food rather than at the restaurants but there were... More
