“Great Location, Great Hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

I have just got home from a 3 night stay at the NH Caransa. Fantastic location within walking distance from most of the main tourist locations in Amsterdam. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. The hotel is on Rembrandtplein one of the main areas of nightlife in Amsterdam so some noise at night can be expected, but we were there when Spain won Euro 2012 and there were many 'happy' Spaniards, but no real noise problems. I would recomend this hotel if you want to be in the heart of Amsterdam in a good hotel for a reasonable price. I had a fantastic time.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room ask for one on the side or at the back, this will reduce you view but impro...

Enjoyed the stay at this hotel. It is convenient for Rembrantplein and not a million miles away from Dam Square, all easily walkable.
It was expensive I felt and the only few things that let it down were only two supplies of tea or coffee per day, whereas we felt that more would not have "broken the bank". I'm sure we could have asked for more but it was not a great issue. The wifi was only available in the lobby and only then on short term allowances, supposedly of 30 minutes but more relaistically about 8 minutes.
We were NOT disappointed in this hotel. It was very clean, the service was excellent, the staff were friendly and not too intrusive. The breakfast costs were to be avoided although the food was delightful. A comfortable and pleasant place to stay, modern, light and airy.

NH Caransa is conveniently located just across the street from a tram stop (a tram is the best way to travel in Amsterdam besides walking). It's literally five steps to the tram stop. It's located in Rembrandtplein, with lots of restaurants around. Very clean, decently-sized rooms with a large clean bathroom with modern features. The front desk staff is also very helpful. Definitely recommend staying here!

We got this hotel kind of last second, it's a really easy to get to hotel right in the center of a major square. You also are right on the tram line so you can go almost anywhere from right outside the hotel room doors. There are ample amount of pubs and restaurants and everything kind of works out well. It's not a great hotel, but it's just fine and you kind of know what you are in for. Decent breakfast every morning included and the hotel staff are great at helping out with anything. It's a perfect tourist or short business hotel covering all the basics. I would go to it again unless I wanted something a bit better and different and maybe a bit quieter since it is in the middle of everything.

We arrived at the hotel after a grueling 7.5 hour flight and were greeted by friendly staff who promptly stored our luggage so that we could enjoy some of the sights or take I'm a quick bite. It was 10am so I wasn't surprised our room hadn't been prepared, I was pleased though when we cane back at noon and were able to check-in. The room was clean and spacious by European standards. Two beds, a tv, mini bar, and somewhat or a desk occupied the room. The bathroom was clean and included a modern shower with tons of hot water. The two of us (both adults) were able to move around the room with ease. The hotel is located in Rembrantplein, a lively area surrounded by cafes, restaurants, and a view bars. It is centrally located, we were able to walk the entire city from this location with ease. I would stay at this hotel again without question, there are a few things to note; they were doing construction next door. It would get loud in the mornings but the room was quiet at night. The room we were in had no view as our beautiful large windows faced the adjacent building. Happy travels :)

- Location: A little bit far from train station, but easily accessed by tram. In a very nice square. Good location.
- Frontdesk: nice staff, but that's it.
- Room (stayed in a standard): old, no view from room (window is to a wall), bathroom very uncomfortable (if one is using the bathroom and other opens the door, be careful, the door will hit your face.
- Breakfast: they have a healthy appealing breakfast with some natural stuff and it's nice (natural yogurt, and others). They don't have a good variety of food, but is sufficent. The hotel has a balcony at breakfast room and it's very nice.
- Free internet at lobby with 30 minutes breaks, one can use as much as he wants, but has to enter a new password every 30 minutes. That was very annoying

Hotel overall: old, expensive, room is terrible, but sleep is very quiet and has this environment and health care that has some credit.

This hotel sucks, but I imagine most do in amsterdam. The rooms are small with uncomfortable beds, no ac, horrible amenities, poor cust sv. And no wireless Internet!!!! Have to pay swisscom each day, and that rarely works although they will gladly take your money
