“Nice looking hotel in a great party location ( if that's what you're after) but no air-conditioning in the summer makes for sad,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

Nice, modern hotel with a great location. Quite a few drawbacks for me though: first of all, there is no air conditioning in the rooms--just some useless "cooling system" (a fan) that arbitrarily shuts off. So, the room was really warm and sticky for each of our nights there IN AUGUST. There is a window you could open but since the hotel is located in a prime nightlife area, you wouldn't want to because it's really loud out there. My husband liked the really firm bed, but I didn't. With the one hard pillow per person I felt like I was back in my basic training days in the military.
There were some positives, however. The tram stops RIGHT outside the hotel and it's real easy to get around. Also, if you're young (and not old like me--I'm 31) this is a great party location. There was also a decent free Wi-fi which I would take over a fluffy pillow (but not A/C) any day.

All in all, I would probably stay here again if it were not the height of summer.

Stayed one night and git a superior room top floor facing Rembrantplain. Got the corner room. What a beautiful room. The rooms are very large and the hotel is exceptionally well located. The # 9 tram stops right in front of the hotel and you can take it 2 stops to the train station. Your only 2 blocks from the flower market.

Stayed July 2012

Good value of money and perfect location. A room we had first was noisy, but then we changed the room. The second one was smaller but really quiet with nice view to Amsterdam Central direction.

A clean, comfortable hotel in the heart of a lively city.
Nice terrace for the breakfast.
Directly on Rembrandtplein, full of street dancers and singers.
Plenty of restaurants on the square itself.
Supermarkets at 1 minute walk, on the right.
The Flower Market and the New Market are within walking distance.
Easy to reach fom Centraal Station (tram n.9).
WE'LL BE BACK FOR SURE!

3 night stay went well. Room was good, in a great location within the city with trams right outside and a McDonald's 300 yards up the road. Staff spoke many languages and we were left alone. Would recommend to anyone.

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...
