We booked this through Lastminute.com using one of their "top secret" hotels. A mistake we shall not make again. Hadn't done this before but thought it might be fun! When we had booked and then the hotel was revealed, we were a little concerned at reading the reviews on Schiller, especially about them supplying earplugs, but thought we'd go with it anyway.
The hotel is tired and in my opinion is no way worthy of 4 stars. We were given a room on the 4th floor overlooking the square, which looked very pretty with all the lights. The room was smallish, but would have been adequate if it weren't for the ridiculous lack of storage. There was just one single wardrobe (photos below) which contained the safe and the tea and coffee making facilities and some hangers for half height hanging. When putting a t-shirt on a hanger it then draped all over the cups etc. No drawers or even hooks on backs of doors so nowhere to hang long winter coats.
But the noise from Rembrandt square was horrendous until the early hours. Coupled with a not very comfy bed either.
Next morning we asked to change rooms and this was happily done to a slightly larger room on the 2nd floor at the back of the hotel (with some storage!) This did help with the noise issue to a certain degree, but it was just so loud that we could still hear the bass beating away at 3:30am and again the bed was wickedly firm.
Cleanliness was adequate, nice crisp sheets.
Breakfast was fabulous. If you book the day before it is 15 euros otherwise 20 euros on the morning. We did pre-book but the bill given to us each morning was for 20, but was amended when mentioned. Plenty of juices, breads and pastries, chesses and meats, cereals, yogurts, fruits and gorgeous tiny pancakes. Kept me going all day long.
But no matter how good the breakfast we shall not be going back.
