“The staff are brilliant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

The hotel was booked on the internet by myself. When we got there late in the evening we found that our room was not very good. We spoke to the manager who moved us the following morning. The hotel is in a great location and for the price is value for money. The staff in the hotel were exceptional nothing was too much trouble for them. The only thing being is the hotel is a typical dutch building meaning the stairs are many and very steep. There is no lift so if you have difficulty climbing stairs this may not suit you. If you want great service in a small friendly hotel and are willing to compromise on quality this is fantastic. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Unless you are very fit do not go higher than the second floor.

Booked this hotel through veren.com and had the option to pay now or later. When we arrived at the hotel it was clean and tidy. All the staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was great and the bathroom was clean as well. Free Wifi also. They provided breakfast in the morning which was lovely and more than enough to start your day. It is in a great location to everything and the staff provided us with a map which they had pointed out all the hot spots. Would def recommend and have booked to go back already!!!!

Room Tip: There are 5 floors which means there is quite a few stairs, for the less able to walk request a lowe...

My girlfriend and I planned a trip to Amsterdam as my retirement gift. We searched for hotels and after a lot of researching we decided to stay at the Rembrandtplien Hotel in Amsterdam. We booked a room for 10 days. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner of the Hotel. We walked into a beautiful lobby. It was very European and comfortable. As we checked in I noticed to the left of the check in desk, there was an extremely nice restaraunt! We were assisted to our room and shown how everything worked. The Registration Clerk was so sweet and helpful. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Everything was clean and sanitized and we even had a a large window we could open and enjoy the breeze. The beds were very ,very comfortable! We felt more like we were in a Bed and Breakfast! Felt almost like family and really fell in love with Rembrandt, the lobby "guard" dog! Thank you guys so much for making our stay just perfect! Miss all of you!

We booked this using hostelbookers.com and we were happy with the hotel considering the amount we paid.
Obviously for a cheaper price you cannot expect much so I was pleasantly surprised with the accommodation. AWESOME location.
Compared to other hostels that we paid a similar price for, Rembrandtplein had nicer looking rooms.
The boy behind the counter that greeted us was very helpful, full of information and really nice. The hotel also has a pug called Rembrandtplein who is really cute, the staff let us pat him and hang out with him. They were all relaxed and friendly.
Computer with internet access downstairs and breakfast too.
Overall, for the price we paid we were really happy and would stay here again for sure.

Amsterdam is a lovely city but a poor hotel can spoil all that beauty. This place looks nice as you walk into the lobby but that where it stops. The hotel is poorly run starting with breakfast. There were literally 6 slices of cheese spread out in 3 trays in the breakfast area and 6 slices of questionable, sliced ham. The rest of breakfast consisted of two piles of stale bread and a few tiny packages of peanut butter and jam. I joked to the other guests that we have such a wide selection for breakfast. They laughed and rolled their eyes saying, "it is very poor". Then you have the hotel rooms themselves which are more like little closets with beds in them. My mattress was so lumpy it must have been there since WWII. The bathroom was constantly leaking and there was a puddle in front of the toilet which as soon as it was wiped up reappeared quickly. The rug was stained all the way up all floors and in the rooms. Just so awful. There was no heating in the room which was damp all the time. They charge a room key deposit and when I went to collect it they said we don't know how to give it to you, you have to wait for the person who took the deposit. They will be here on Monday. Yeah great! on Monday I will be half way around the world. With a dumb smile, the answer was, there is nothing I can do.
This is one of the cutest neighborhoods and I love this city but what a dump of a hotel. It should be closed down. You can get a place just a block away that is way better and have a good stay in this lovely city.

Room Tip: Stay away the rooms are bad and service is worse.

we apologise for the misunderstanding with the key card ,after the receptionist called me it was sorted out immediately. We had a meeting with all staff and discussed it so it will not happen again . we noticed based on your reviews that you stay usually in Amsterdam in 4 star hotels . we understand your disappointment about us since we are a budget hotel where price and quality is in balance . feedback is to help future guest to make their choice and its only fair to judge us in the category that we are. you loved the neighbourhood and you have right there are, 4 star hotels around us and suggest you book them on your next visit to avoid disappointments. We don't have a restaurant and breakfast is not included, or paid for , we simply give free drinks and food in the morning in our lobby as a service , not obligated . you booked a single room through expedia where exactly the pictures ,description and size 10square meters of the room is mentioned .we know that's small but so its the price . And we compensate small rooms with our lobby and smoking area that guests can use , drinks not obligated , own food and drinks permitted. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the rest of Amsterdam . Sincerely Manager .
