“Perfect place for a stay in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is a great place to stay if you are exploring Amsterdam. The rooms are small and basic, but you won't be spending much time there anyway. The hotel is located on one of the busiest and vibrant squares in all of the city. You can easily walk from the hotel to anywhere in the city in about 20 minutes, and there is a tram station right out the front door. The staff is friendly, English-speaking, and available at all hours.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 31' on the north side facing the square. No in room toilet, but had a sink.

We stayed here for 2 nights and we loved this place. Easy to reach. Take tram 4 or 9 from amsterdam central and get down right opposite the rembrandt square. the hotel is right on top of smokey club. its 7 minute walk from waterlooplein station. if you are coming from airport, take train to amsterdam central and take tram 4or 9 from amsterdam central to hotel. Alternative route is you can get down at Zuid station and take a local train to waterlooplien and walk to hotel.

we found no issues with hotel. 24 hours reception, Bob at reception was helpful. check in quick. stairs are very steep. we were in 3rd floor and luckily did not travel with much luggage. numerous hotels and eateries around, we had no issues with food. the place is lively at night. we stayed in a weekday, but i guess weekends will be more buzzing.we bought a 48 hour GVA card for Euro 12 for metro/tram/bus travel. remember you can use this card for Airport travel (fyra or airport trains). 24 hour card is Euro 7.


room was very clean, airy and shared bathrooms were good. 2 bathrooms in a floor so no issues with it. the area seemed very safe. breakfast was served a club next to hotel and it was good and filling.

Except for steep stairs, this hotel won our heats. We would stay here again if travelling to Amsterdam.

Considering this is a 1 star hotel it is great! The room was really clean, attractively decorated and even though we had a shared bathroom there were two to share on each floor so we were never stuck waiting. I can see why people might think it's noisy as the hotel overlooks right onto the middle of Rembrandt Square which is a lively square (however this does mean it is a great location with lots of bars and restaurants around) and we didn't ever find it a problem.

The staff were really friendly and we were able to leave our bags after checkout which was great.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel.

We booked a twin-bed room with shared bathroom. The room was just fair, in term of size and cleanliness. The door of the bathtub was broken and the shower gel was empty, but it was fine for us because we bring our own. Hotel is near to a coffee shop and a bar. That made the environment very noisy till mid-night, so I recommend people staying here should bring their ear-blocks. Be aware of the surely leg-breaking stair if you have luggage.

The staffs are cheerful and helpful. Breakfast provided was also satisfied.

Room Tip: Windows of the room never facing the Rembrandt Square

We stayed here on a lads weekend break so this hotel was perfect for us, decent clean rooms and facilities and in a great location for a great price. Breakfast was also provided as part of the price next door in the nightclub area, was good for a bit of toast etc and a drink to start the day off. Looking to go back soon.

Stayed at this hotel last year and it was a dream to stay in. We had a beautiful large room with balcony overlooking Rembrandt Square.
The food was great and staff were very helpful.
The hotel is in a really nice location. Lots of nightclubs dotted around the square if thats what you like.
The tram runs outside the hotel so east to get to Dam Square etc.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights during our first visit to Amsterdam, and had a good experience at the Rembrandt Square Hotel. There were a few issues we had with the place, however, that some people might find hard to look past. First, as most other reviewers have said, the hotel is located in one of the busiest squares of Amsterdam, directly above a coffee shop and numerous clubs that stay open until 3 or 4 in the morning. We were on the third floor, and it was still very loud, so I can only imagine how loud it is for the rooms on the second floor. But, the hotel is very upfront about this and offers free ear plugs for anyone who wants them. Along with the noise issues, I was bothered that the entire hotel constantly smelled like pot. But, there's nothing they can really do about that since they are located directly above a coffee shop. The Internet worked well throughout the hotel, and the shared bathrooms were pretty clean. Plus, the location is unbeatable. We were in walking distance of everything we wanted to see, and there was always something going on in Rembrandt Square. Finally, the hotel staff could not have been nicer, and gave us a map of Amsterdam pointing out how to get to all of the major sites. Though the noise and smell bothered me, I would definitely stay here again!
