NH Doelen, The Jolly Carlton or the Rembrandt Residence

Going to Amsterdam in February and wondered whether anyone could tell me which would be the best hotel to stay out of these three. Various reviews on each, so confused.

Thanks

Well whichever hotel you check you will always get the odd bad review for one reason or another. Ive never stayed at Doelen but I believe to be an ok 3* hotel , nice location.

Of the other two if you want atmospher I would choose Rembrandt. Its converted canal houses and dates back to 17th cent. and well less expensive than Jolly Carlton , which is a more modern hotel but also very nice.

Thank you! Would you book the Rembrandt Residence over the Doelen?

The other one I am looking at is the France or the Schiller

Oh dear, Hotel France a no no then. Why? Also, what about the Amstelzicht. Quite like the sound of the canal view rooms. Alternatively, can you recommend anywhere else close-ish to Dam Square/Centre and which has a pretty view? Thanks again!

NH Schiller is on Rembrandtspein and rates very well on the reviews at this site. I havnt stayed there either.

some rooms at France are below ground and have no natural light.

Go for the Jolly, it's got the best view of all the hotels - it overlooking the Munt Plein - directly opposite the hotel De L'Europe which is one of the best looking hotels in Amsterdam. You can get the Jolly for 79 EUROS if you book early - check www.bookings.nl

The Jolly is very close to Dam Square and the Rembrambtplein.

It's definately number one in my opinion. I'm a 4 star traveller.

The NH Schiller is a bad hotel. You won't get any sleep. I stayed there once when the Jolly oversold our room... it's located next to a bar - that bangs music out until 2am. Rembrambtplein is a noisy place... loads of drunks shouting etc... there's a nightclub across the road that's open until 6am... don't stay there... the Jolly is <300 metres away. You'll have all the action within mere walking distance and you'll get a good nights sleep too.

Mark, do you prefer the Jolly to the Marriott?
