“Great place, for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Keep in mind that my rating is so high because this place is such a great value. It is only a one star hotel though, so don't be fooled. The rooms are very comfortable.and clean. The location is amazing, right over the Rembrandt Square. We really enjoyed just people watching out the window where we had a perfect view of the performers in the square. It is very noisy at nighttime as others have said. I would have been miserable without the ear plugs, but with them it was fine. Just be prepared. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast next door.

I booked this hotel about two weeks before us coming to Amsterdam. For about 100€ per night it was the cheapest twin room available in Amsterdam city centre. The deal is fair. The price is fine, the room was clean and the staff was very pleasant. It is situated on the Rembrandtplaan which is the place to go for a night of partying. However, our room was oriented towards the courtyard so we were not disturbed by any commotion outside. There were two shared bathrooms with shower and toilet for three rooms on our floor and they were maintained clean. I appreciated the electric kettle with instant coffee and teabags.

As for the cons, our room was very tiny and one of the walls was actually a roof that was sloping, which meant that my bed which was put against the sloping part of the wall had very little space above it. It needs a bit time to get used to. There are no elevators, so prepare for the option of staying on 5th floor with about 100 stairs to make on a very narrow staircase. The breakfast is at the bar next door as there is not much space left on the ground floor of the hotel and we found the time to be very inconvenient - it was served fom 9 a.m. when most of the time we were already outside exploring. There is a coffeeshop right underneath the hotel as well.

Anyway overall a good value for money, it is a fair deal and I would recommend it to fellow young travellers.

The hotel is great. At first we got a room facing the square which I must admit a bit noisy with the pulsating music from the street but we were lucky they upgraded our room into a triple room facing the back of the hotel which is very quiet. There's no elevator in the hotel & we had to carry our heavy luggage up to the 4th floor but at least we had exercise. Inside the room, basic such as kettle to boil water & fan is provided. The triple room we had also has a sink. The staff is very helpful to show us where to exciting location to visit around Amsterdam. Hotel also provide a small room to store your luggage in case you came early before the check in time or decide stay after the check out time. Train stop just 20 meters from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask to lower floor, facing the back not the square because it is quite noisy.

Stayed here with two friends in September for one night and was very pleased with the standard of the hotel as well as the location. Sittimg right on the square, central Amsterdam is just outside the front door - the square can be lively at night but we were lucky with a rear facing room. Funnily enough, there is a letter in the room stating that earplugs are available FOC as reception should you need them but honestly - it's nowhere near as bad as that would suggest. Staff very friendly, room clean and tidy with tea / coffee making and the usual steep stairs. We had a shared toilet which was two enclosed toilet units between about 4 rooms and they were spotless, never saw another person and quality of shower etc was excellent.
The breakfast was very good, just served next door in what was a jumping nightclub until about 3am - but it was transformed into a breakfast room with an excellent buffet.
If your into that kind of thing, Smokeys Coffeshop is right underneath the hotel and I would also recommend it - it didn;t get a good right up some sites but we found it to be one of the best and kept coming back. The combination of being able to have a beer and a smoke at the same time, plus they do food and some excellent fruit smoothies as well as good music, pool tables, quality 'gear', outside tables and a generally good atmosphere.

All in all a very good experience for us and would highly recommend the Rembrandt !

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room , get one facing away from the main square

This hostel is very centrally located middle of popular cafes, clubs and joints. The staff is pretty helpful and friendly. Stay also offers you some free drinks at the cafe below. The rooms are pretty small but clean and the interiors are very modern chic. The complimentary breakfast is served in a club/cafe next door but the spread is worth the money. The only drawback is the noise levels as it is situated right above a number of clubs and cafes and getting sound sleep is impossible.

They advertise themselves as being the best one-star hotel in Amsterdam, and that´s probably true. The location is very central, the staff´s friendly and the shared bathroom was of surprisingly high standards. Your typical basic continental breakfast was served in a dingy cafe next door. Like most basic hotels in Amsterdam the staircase is steep and there is no elevator, but a friendly and very fit staff member offered to carry my 23 kg bag to the first floor. Compared to other hotels in the same price range, this place in my opinion, offers great value for money, the only problem is the noise.There is a nightclub downstairs in the same building that plays extremely loud, trashy music until late, 3 am or so. I got free earplugs from reception, but it was still loud enough for me to hear which Shakira song was on. If you plan on staying out late every night or you are hearing impaired, or sleep like a rock, this place is a bargain.

Room Tip: Second floor is less noisy

good location . standard of room was also good.

Overall the staff were helpful, on the last day i requested a wake up call to leave, and didnt get one. I complained and instead of an apology i got a "there is no record " and then the lady on reception advised that i actually did have a wake up call. - i wasnt high, and im a deep sleeper , but i would have woken if i had a call. There were no apologies. However, other than this i actually really liked the hotel and if this incident didnt happen I would have given the hotel a higher rating.

it is loud on weekends - so if you are not looking for that , dont pick this hotel. on thursday and friday night it wasnt too bad.

Room Tip: request the highest floor possible!
