NH Schiller has a cool old-world feel and a terrific location, right in the heart of the action in Amsterdam. We joked that "Rembrandt's Plaza" is the Times Square of Amsterdam as it has one good-sized tv screen on one building. The lobby of the hotel is a little faded and dated but our room (117) was beautiful with a view of the square looking right at the statues. We had booked another room for our two teenagers and it was small and slightly dungeon-like (120) so pay close attention to the size and the location of the room you book. The larger room with the view was more but it wasn't that much more and it was a "night and day" improvement over the other room. The whole family hung out in the large room that has a pull-out couch and comfy chair with the fabulous view and the teenagers went back to their small room to sleep. Turns out they slept better because the rooms with the view of Rembrandt's square are hella noisy as hard-drinking tourist are outside your window yelling until four o'clock in the morning. The bathroom was huge and had a stained glass window that was very pretty.
Don't bother with the breakfast. You can get much cheaper at any sidewalk cafe on the square and there is a pastry shop down the street. You can catch the tram right across the square and it will save you a lot of time walking once you get familiar with the layout of the town. And there is an awesome Indonesian restaurant to the right when you exit the hotel that has a great set of menu options.
Would definitely recommend this hotel with a caveat of making sure you understand what type of room you are booking. We would love to come back and stay there again.
