“Best deal in Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I realize this will never be a 5 star hotel because of the stairs, the shared bath, and the potential for noise but my view out my window, overlooking Rembrandt Square was fantastic and well worth the journey up to get it. My room couldn't have been cleaner, the staff was terrific, and I never ran into the folks with whom I shared the modern bath. Yes there was noise from below in this location but I can sleep through anything so all in all the best value for the money spent in the city.

Room Tip: Overlook the square

When I first started looking at hotels in Amsterdam, I was in shock by how expensive most of the hotels were and almost reconsidered going at all. However, I came across Rembrandt Square Hotel, and although I will admit that I was unsure about the whole shared bathroom idea, I'm glad I chose this hotel. The staff was so incredibly nice, the room was simple and exactly what I needed, and the bathroom wasn't an issue at all. Furthermore, the location is fantastic. Rembrandtplein is very lively and is a short distance away from everything you could want to do in Amsterdam. Just note that with this location, you are giving up serenity so don't expect a quiet night in the hotel. I will definitely stay here again if I ever return.

hotel is perfect location for sightseeing and access to city , walking distances to everywhere, only used tram for travelling to airport
hotel clean comfortable and staff were great , very friendly
room was small but functional , had a table and kettle, which was useful . we had a shared bathroom , bit apprehensive about this, but was fine , and kept very clean . the shower was very good (electric power shower)
noisy at night as located above a nightclub and nearby coffee shop, did not realise this prior to booking so sleep was somewhat disturbed, kind of good for people watching though :)
but we had a great trip , particularly fab hot weather too

Room Tip: room number 23 is above the night club facing the street

Best location in Amsterdam for exploring the city's highlights as well as shopping and nightlife. everything is within walking distance. Rooms are very basic but clean. Good value for a hotel in the city centre.
During public holidays reservations have to be made several weeks in advance.

Nice small hotel - rooms very small but ideal for City breaks - very clean and tidy. Staff very friendly! Free wifi is good as well. Breakfast available in the bar below - E2.50 per day - buffet style continental breakfast. Right next to the tram stop - 5 mins into Dam Square. Recommended, however very noisy at night due to the bars/club below so not recommended for light sleepers!

Small hotel. Perfect balance between quality and prize. You can breeze Amsterdam in your room.
1 minute from the centre of the city and nearby tram and train and on a walking distance to the city's most important musea such as Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum

A well run business. I have spent quite a long time in this hotel but had ot book almos 3 months in advance. The hotel gets very busy during weekends and is true what you read, is right above a night club. The location is good, no in the middle of dam square but certainly well located inside the canals ring. The square it looks at is very busy every day but is relatively safe compared to few years ago. The hotel is in fact closer to a hostel but definitely not a hostel. The staff is good, especially those that seems to be the owner and long term employees. I had alittle issue only with one youngish guy but not even worth mentioning it, just a misunderstandanding i guess. So, travelled from Toronto, you get to the hotel with any street car from the central station that runs on the damrak. The checkin was smooth, i got a double with shared bathroom. The bathroom was clean, even when there were other guests, whether it was because the guest were well mannered or because of the frequency it gets cleaned, i do not know but was acceptable. The room got cleaned every other day which i did not mind. My room was on the first floor just looking over the square. The price is good, for the same arrangement in Amsterdam you can easily expect a 10-15% more in terms of pricing, not sure if my way in advance booking helped with the prices but i think it was a honest one. The downstairs coffeeshop runs till 1am but was not noisy at all, the night club bass insteas can easily get up to 4am and the bass sounds are hearable from the room, but not annoying. Unexpectedly i found more annoying the guests in the nearby room, i think the rooms are better isolated from the outside than from each other so i could hear all the conversations even if they were almost whispering. Unless you get someone that decided to talk the whole night, which happened to me during the weekend, sleeping is not a problem.
I was surprised by the smoothness of the transaction: when you get this kind of hotel you are likely closer to travelling than to vacationing and therefore you are more concerned with avoiding financial damages. Instead, they never charged my credit card since i informed them of my intention to pay in cash, been given a proof of payment seconds after handling the cash to them and not been asked for a deposit. Which made me feel very comfortable. I also got somewhat sick and a very nice girl at the reception gave me useful tips about how to find a doctor, all solved in few hours. It is a safe place too, they are very careful, maybe because of the location, about who gets in and out and after a while a felt like there was a family taking care of me. If you need a cheap and safe place for few days or even a basic accomodation for a longer stay, this is a good option.

Room Tip: Someone mentioned that rooms on the other side of the square are less noisy but could not verify tha...
