“A hotel that feels almost like a hostel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We only stayed for two nights, and i had no experience in Amsterdam hotels, we had problems with the not so obvious entrance to it ( its next to a smoke shop) , you have to ring to get someone open the door, so a couple of times we had to stand in the rain for several minutes ringing over and over so someone opened the door. Then the stairs, i know that is something more to do with the architecture of the city but they are a little steep and drunk people will have some problems dealing with them.

I found it clean at least our rooms, but it is a little gloomy and just not very welcoming. Its okay i guess, but it wasn't that cheap either.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and were extremely impressed with every aspect of the hotel. Normally photos shown on hotel websites can be a little skewed, but these were true to life. The rooms were extremely clean and perfect for our short city break. The location is superb for young travellers with interest in going out at night as it was in the centre of the Rembrandt square itself, which is very easy to get to from the train station by tram, or even just a short walk of 10 mins. Whilst many reviews said that noise was an issue, i did not find that to be true as we didn't arrive back at the hotel until after all the clubs were closed! Because of this, the 24/7 reception was a godsend as they require you to ring a bell to be let in (which was fine by me as it ensured our safety). The reception staff were lovely and could not do enough for you and I would be more than happy to stay again, and probably will in a few months! Whilst each bedroom does not have a bathroom, two bathrooms are shared on each floor, but they were so clean you wouldn't have known there was anyone else in the hotel! Moreover, the room did have a sink in so we could brush our teeth in our PJ's. My one and only criticism was that the smell from the coffeeshop below did travel up into our room, however this was not a huge issue as you quickly got used to it as pretty much the whole city smells like this too.
Thank you to Rembrandt Square hotel for making my stay so enjoyable!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the square had a great view.

Me and my brother stayed here for 3 nights and we had a fantastic stay. We were on the fourth floor which was not a problem as up there we didn't hear any of the noise from the clubs below the hotel. The room was a perfect size for us and having a good fan in the room was very helpful. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. As for the location, well that for me was the best thing about this hotel. It is on the busy Rembrandt Square surrounded by restaurants and bars and Smokey's Coffeeshop is directly below the hotel if that is your kind of thing. One minor inconvenience was the shared toilets/showers however with two on every floor it means there is two toilets/showers shared between only five rooms so there were no queues to get in. There is also a toilet at reception. If I was going back to Amsterdam then I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: If you dont mind stairs, get a room nearer the top as it will block out most of the noise from the n...

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
