“great location”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Very nice hotel in a great part of town. You can walk almosts everywhere from here. The rooms was clean, the staff very helpful, room reasonably priced. Free WiFi is a plus. This is not a high end place but very good standard level. Clean, well kept.

Conveniently located in the middle of town. However, standard hotel, nothing special. Clean, but somewhat in need of an upgrade. Pictures on their website for superior rooms did not match reality (at least not the room I was given, but did not bother to complain). Free wifi, but not very performant. Fine for one night or a couple of nights if you just need to sleep. Helpful frontdesk staff. Had a room on the Muntplein side and was awakened in the middle of the night by a street fight. Not the hotel's fault, of course. Would go back if I just need a hotel room for one night, but would not recommend for a longer stay. For Amsterdam standards, pricing is acceptable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the quiet side (back) of the hotel.

We recently stayed at the NH Carlton for 4 nights and loved it. We needed a hotel at the last moment and lucked into this one. The staff was super friendly and helpful, even to the point of contacting our next hotel to find out transportation specifics for us. Checking in and out we needed to store our bags for the day, no problem. Our room was spotless and located on the 7th floor with an amazing view of the city. They had bicycles available for our use (although we didn't). Easy access to the trams. Great central location put us close to everything, especially the Rembrandt Plein and lots of great restaurants. WIFI in the room was free and worked beautifully. We didn't dine in the hotel restaurant, but the menu looked really good...maybe next time. Lastly, the free map of Amsterdam was better than our purchased one. We would go back there in a heartbeat!

NH Carlton, Amsterdam is a hotel in a centre of Amsterdam, with a great location overlooking a floral market, very close to Rembrandtplein, good walking connection with famous Leidsepleine, Dam... The rooms are small, not so clean, but we were out all days, so , it was not so important... You have coffee/tea kettler in the room, wi-fi in the lobby area, cafeteria in the Hotel. I have stayed in much more exclusive and expensive hotels, yet, I fell in love with AMSTERDAM, so the hotel was the last thing on my mind... I have comfy mattresses at home, I don't have Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, I don't have happy, shiny people all over the place (it was the Queen's Day and celebration all over), I don't have canal with little coffee shops... We have room without meal, and it was great decision, because all around the hotel you have so many options.

Simply put one of the worst room I've have experienced. The marble basin had a big frontal piece broken and the brilliant solution was...putting some glue on it and attaching it back!
The heater near the shower leaked and was completely rusted, the door dirty, room furniture old and decaying. That said my room was priced at nearly 150 euros per night.

The last morning, as a farewell gift, I asked for a taxi at the reception and was told "Please stay inside we will tell you when it arrives". It was cold outside, what a nice thought...until, after 20 minutes and being late for my appointment, I discovered my taxi had not been reserved to me but could be freely highjacked (as it eventually happened) by other customers outside.

Shame on them.

Room Tip: Avoid room 512

Hotel has a great location, but service and standard does not match the price we had to pay for a hotel room that was nothing but ok.

WLAN didn’t work and breakfast turned out to be twice the price we signed up for when we checked in – still the front desk staff at check-out didn’t budge and claimed that the misunderstanding was on us. That’s just too unprofessional…

We had a tired double room with a back yard view. If you’re staying here – ac. If you have a choice however – spend your money on a hotel that appreciates its guests more that the NH Carlton in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: We had a tired double room with a back yard view, quiet but boring. If you’re staying here – ask for...
