“Amazing Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Beautifully tucked away amongst the city centre squares of Amsterdam. Located between some nice local bars, the reception team are very friendly and always on hand to help. They stored our bags both before check-in and after we had checked-out ( not many places offer this service). Only down fall is there was only 1 lift, so you had to wait for that to come from the top. Otherwise a great hotel and would recommend it

The hotel is very noisy because Rembrandt Square is crowded day and night and you can hear noises at all hours. Even employees know; into the room there are earplugs, and at the reception you can ask the sleeping pills. The rooms are arranged in a hurry and cleaning is not at the top.
As it 4 stars is a bit poor.

The hotel location is really excellent, you can walk around the whole city center in just few minutes. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, wonderful breakfast....and you are in the heart of the party...

This hotel was nice enough, starting to show some wear and tear around the edges, but otherwise nice enough. They seemed to be having an off night when I was there though. The lifts weren't working and the staff seemed distracted. And, considering the location right on Rembrandtplein, they really need to invest in some better soundproofing.

I am very glad to finally be able to put pen to paper and vent my disappointment at this hotel and its staff. My experience was a 1 night stay at the end of a business trip to Utrect.

- no shuttle reserved for us in the morning, although it was promised and reserved at check-in.

- tv didnt work

- cigarette burns all over bathroom

- elevator out of commission in lobby

- front desk attendant asleep on easy chair in lobby in morning at 7am when I was trying to find out where the breakfast buffet is.

- noise very loud from outside. Felt like I was camping out on the balcony - the way the ambient noise was. I turned in early - at 10:30pm instead of doing the all night party experience of Rembrandt square.

- location is great, but they are letting this hotel slide into chaos, disorder and disrepair. Never again....

Just got back from a 2 night stay here. I booked this hotel as part of package with Last Minute, after I had booked I emailed the hotel and asked about an upgrade, the upgrade was a mistake on my part. The room was very spacious and well furnished but I couldn't see much of a difference from a normal room.
We were on the fifth floor at the front of the hotel facing Rembrandt Square. When we got into the room i noticed complimentary ear plug...at bed time I realised why! The noise is incredibly loud, music, shouting, motorbikes and the ding ding of trams. The double glazed windows were just not up to the job to keep the noise out.
shortly after we arrived the lift broke down on the day we left it was still broken. We were told to use the service lift which also broke down at one point, coming home late evening after a lot of walking all I needed was to have to walk up the service stairs to the fifth floor. The service lift was mended the next day though.
Rooms are well serviced and clean. One day we went out at 7.30am and returned at 2pm our room had not been serviced yet. We put a do not disturb sign out as we wanted a nap, when we went out later there was a bag with fresh towels and toiletries left out side for us.
Overall this was a nice hotel with a great view over the Square, if you don't mind the noise then a room at the front is perfect. Staff were helpful, we were given a map of the area and discounts for Canal trips and were also offered for our luggage to be stored or a taxi when we checked out.
