“Overall good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Many good points for this Hotel :
- very close to the Tram station line that leads directly to the center and also to the RAI exhibition center ( I was there for an exhibition in February)
-right on rembrandt square - which is a good thing for having a drink or two in a pub at evening/night but can become loudy on the weekends .
- shopping streets is at walking distance , DAM square is at 10-15 minute walk.
- located in an area where you find a mix of locals and tourists - whereas near the center DAM square , it is more just tourists.....

The down side , would be that the hotel itslef is old ( actually it's a kind of historical building and furnitures etc...) , the street noises at evening are those of a busy city street ( which is fine with me coming from a busy city ) , the breakfast not a very strong point .....just the average continental selection....

overall , an average good mixture , especially if you're taking the hotel as a base point for your amsterdam experience rather then being an experience by itself

Room Tip: try getting higher levels rooms to reduce the street noises effect

The hotels location is perfect for seeing Central Amsterdam. The room we had was cosy and at the back if the hotel as we were advised this would be quieter.

We had a room safe, mini bar and bath which were all used. Breakfast was eaten outside of the hotel - better value.

First time in Amsterdam in Feb 2014. Stayed at this hotel and couldn't fault it at all. Reception staff very polite and helpful, asked us if we would prefer a room facing the square or round the back, we asked for the square. The first night we were there I couldn't sleep for a while due to the noise of the night life outside but after that one night it didn't bother me at all. Friday night seemed to be the only bad one out of all weekend.

Hotel is very clean, very nice décor, lots of refreshments & mini bar (chargeable obviously). Great location for everything - nice park, the zoo, red light district, museums, bars & coffee shop next door to the hotel.

All in all it was a fantastic trip and if we are to visit again we would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, avoid rooms looking over the square

A decent hotel in a very central and well connected area of Amsterdam, ideal if you want to be near the museum district, the flower market and walking distance to the main shopping district.

The problem is that it is situated on a popular night life spot and therefore rooms facing the square suffer from a lot of noise until the early hours of the morning.

On the plus side, rooms are fairly nice and clean even though they're rather small and the staff are very friendly and attentive.

Breakfast was what is expected from a 4 star hotel although the buffet could do with being restocked more frequently with fresh produce as things were a bit stale towards the final hour of service.

All and all a decent hotel for the price and star rating and if you bag an online offer then it can be good value for money.

I read TripAdvisor before we went to this hotel and was ready at reception to deal with the reported problem of noisy rooms. On checking in I said about the reviews all reporting the noise at the front of the hotel and asked for a quiet room at the back.
'No problem' and gave me a room 318. This turned out to be on the side wall of the hotel , shared with 2 clubs!!! The base sounds went on well into the night and sleep was impossible.
The following morning they reassigned us to an up graded room in the back,centre of the hotel...which was great.
Shame it took 3 goes, and a rubbish night to get it right.

Room Tip: Be insistent at checking in that you want a quiet room, unless you are going clubbing anyway.

I been amsterdam a good few times a year and is my favourite city my. First time staying at the nh schiller and was concerned with the reviews of noise and yet I never found it a problem , I booked for a standard double a month ago and on arrival was upgraded for free to a gorgeous spacious room on the first floor with a gorgeous huge balcony with amazing views of the square. I am 27 so I don't mind noise but I didn't hear any I woke each morning to beautiful views of the square and people starting there day. The service was amazing and a very clean place I will be coming back ! Close to everything and brilliant for couples

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.

Room Tip: Ask if they have a soundproofed one?
