“Great location, friendly staff, great restaurant, loud at night”
Reviewed January 6, 2010

I went over Thanksgiving holiday and selected this hotel because of it's location and reviews. I was very happy to get a first floor balcony (smoking) room. My double room was a bit smaller than the other on the first floor but I was a solo traveler. It was perfect for me. Room was very clean, bathroom large and clean. I loved the double doors that opened up to the patio. Had one meal of Salmon in the restaurant and it was excellent! The only down to this hotel is the club next door plays VERY loud music late at night...I mean loud. If it weren't for that it would be perfect. Oh, and there was a computer with free internet for guests near the elevator. I'll proably stay there again...just wish that club would turn down the jams a bit.

we went to amsterdam for christmas and stay`d at the schiller, we had stay`d before and been impressed, but this time although the people were helpful and friendly, we were extreamly disappointed to find that xmas eve, xmas day, and boxingday night, the bar and brasserie were closed at 6 pm ...and we had to leave the hotel for any meals ets...after that time, as this is an A1 hotel we expected better, and were not told of this before we went, when we booked...although it could have spoilt our stay, we made the best of things...but if you need a christmas meal, don`t book, here its a disappointment.

Hi,

I just returned from this hotel after staying for 3 nights. I had requested a smoking room in advance (which is difficult to find in Amsterdam) which we were allocated on check in. We had a room on the first floor with a nice balcony overlooking the Rembrandsplein square. The room is perfect size with a flat screen tv and a good selection of english channels but no pay per view movies. The hotel is very well located with restaurants and clubs all outside the door! I would say it is more suited to young people as it is quite loud at night time if you are in a room facing the square. It is a 5 minute walk to Dam's square where you can do shopping and sight seeing. I would recommend the hop on hop off bus tour and would also recommend Lucius seafood restaurant.

All in all, a great stay and fun weekend!

We stayed at this hotel from 19th of September till 22th of September 2009.It was a nice hotel and the rooms are very large for the Europian standarts.The location is good and it can be thought as city center hotel since it was just 5-10 min. walk to Dam Square.We have not tried the restaurant of the hotel so I can not comment on the food satff.But I can tell you that the breakfast is good enough to make you happy.One day we had a problem with the room.We found a small insect in the bed and told this to the staff in the reception and the manager took the responsibility and offer to change the room immediately If we like to do or they will clean and check all the room again. We want them just to check the room and when we turn back at night we find an apologize letter from the manager and 3 apples and a bottle of water.That was kind .You can go to this hotel.Nice location,Nice staff,Nice service.What can you want More?

We were directed to this hotel as our first choice was overbooked and we were told this was to be our hotel for our long weekend. Initially, we were not pleased but on arrival at the said hotel, what a surprise. Lots of old paintings (if you like that sort of thing) but the staff on reception were fantastic. Always helpful and nothing too much trouble. The rooms we were given were superior rooms due to being inconvenienced and they certainly were! On the 6th floor with a balconly overlooking Rembrandht Square. We had a meal in the restaurant and the service and the meal was first class. We found out the next day it was the number one eating place in Amsterdam. The only complaint I had was, on the last day, the breakfast was cold. This was due to a large party who were also leaving that day and everyone seem to have descended on the dining room at the same time.

Taken me almost a year to write this.
We were on a business trip in Dusseldorf Germany, and Friday was German Unity day, so we had a 3 day weekend to enjoy in Amsterdam.

We booked the Schiller rather last minute, and they had availability for us. 4 rooms total.
The hotel is beautiful, very old building, with hard wood floors in the dining room, and very nicely decorated.
I had a room on the 5th floor. I opted for the stairs, as the lift was a little too tiny for my liking.
I was sharing a room with a co-worker, so we had 2 twin beds.
The room was outstanding! I loved the art-deco decor. Nice painting, and even nicer furniture. The bed was extremely comfortable, and we had a charming view over the rooftops of Amsterdam, in the rear of the building.

The Schiller is directly on Rembrandtplein, and the clubs go until all hours of the night. It's very noisy, but since we were in the back of the hotel, we had no problems whatsoever.
I think people exaggerate about the huge neon billboard. But then again, i didn't have a room directly facing it. If this, or the noise may bother you, simply ask for a room in the back.

The bathroom was a nice size. Full size shower, sink, vanity area and toilet.
Nice ammenities (lotion, shampoo, etc...)
There was a rather large desk, also of the contemporary design.
Wall mounted flat screen TV was helpful to catch some news in the morning.
The hallways in the hotel were charming. A little tight, and we peeked into some of the other rooms. There are all decorated similarly, and some even have a slanted ceiling. I saw another which seemed to be very small, with a separate bed area from the main sleeping quarters. I think they really jammed as much 'room' out of the original layout of the building, as they could (as such, there may be a beam or 2 in the way, or some other type of odd layout).

Breakfast in the on-site restaurant was wonderful. Plenty of hot and cold dishes to chose from, buffet style. They had an espresso machine so you can make your own coffee, as well as several fresh juicer machines - even champagne and strawberries.
it was a little pricey, but I felt it was worth it. The quality of the food was excellent.

There is a little patio out front of the hotel where you can have coffee and ready the paper. It is literaly directly on the square, and you are in front of the ''Night Watch" Rembrandt re-enactment, which is just gorgeous.
Directly next store, is a coffeeshop called 'Smokey Joes'. We went in, but didn't sample anything. Everyone was really very nice, and they let me take some pictures! (sorry, but in America you just don't see shops displaying Hash, and Opium for sale!!)

No shortage of pubs and clubs right on the square either. We had lunch at an Italian place, which served excellent gourmet pizza.
As the night fell, we hopped from bar to bar, right on the square. As they started really getting very busy, the service from the wait staff lacked a bit, but thats to be expected.
What a lively place. Excellent people watching.
The square is extremely clean, and they have the street sweepers out at about 5am to clean up the prior night's mess.
There is also a tram that stops right in front of the hotel, should you need transportation.
We walked from Centraal Train Station, to the Schiller, taking in all the sights along the way. Even with baggage, it was an easy trek, and a great way to see the city. Was about a 45 minute walk.

The staff were nice. Not overly nice, but nice. They answered questions, and that was about it. They certainly didn't go out of their way to explain things, or expand on their answers..

Will not hesitate to stay here again. In fact, going back this October, but staying in a Bed and Breakfast, to get a different feel of Amsterdam.
When i do require a hotel in this city on a future visit, the Schiller will be my choice.
If you are young and in the party frame of mind, this is the best Square to stay in. Others may find it just a bit too rowdy for their tastes.

Stayed October 2008, traveled with friends
