NH Amsterdam Caransa

True to the standards of the NH hotel chain, the Caransa is modern, extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. A long narrow spartan lobby takes you off the busy and beautiful Rembrandtplein square after a day spent roaming the canals and streets of Amsterdam. Upstairs, the room was far bigger than most in Europe, with large clean modern bathroom and two minimalist beds with fresh new comfortable linens. Our room had a view out onto the Rembrandtplein square! Though the square can get very busy on some nights, thanks to the many bars, cafes and clubs, the windows blocked out the noise. (clearly the hotel designers understood the noise issue)
Though lacking any specific charm of an old Amsterdamn hotel, with narrow staircases or odd-shaped rooms, the NH Caransa is a great choice for someone seeking comfort, space and cleanliness amidst the chaotic other charms of Amsterdam.

Stayed here for a Friday and Saturday night, and I agree with most comments that some people may find it a bit noisy. However, the square the hotel is located has a brilliant selection of bars and restaurants which suited me prefectly. I didn't find the noise too bad anyway.

Good clean hotel, friendly staff and very good price by Amsterdam standards.

Very modern, well appointed rooms with big windows- many overlooking Rembrandtplein. Rooms are dark wood and white walls with a couple clever design features. Decent bath and nice common areas with everything you'd expect from a newly renovated property. Nothing is more than a 20 minute walk from this hotel.

A modern hotel with nice interior, we stayed Monday to Friday and had no problems at all.

The room was spacious, clean and with everything you would expect. It was cleaned daily.

We had no problems with noise from the square, we were however on the top floor so this may have helped (along with the time of year)

The hotel is really well situated in the city with a very central location, and a tram stop right outside. It is within a 15 - 20 mins walk of all the main attractions.

The only thing that was a slight negative was that you had to take a walk across the square to the sister hotel for breakfast. However this was literally a minute or so and a bit of fresh air in the morning is always good!

The staff were helpful and polite and allowed us to check in early due to the cold weather and held our bags until late on the day of our departure.

Overall we were really pleased that we had chosen this hotel and would definately return.

NH Caransa is a modern looking hotel with stylish interior and friendly service. We stayed there at a Saturday night which wasn't a good idea because we could hear the beats from the nearby club so hard that we even could recognize which songs they played. So unless you go partying yourself during the night, don't stay at this hotel at a Saturday or Friday evening.

We got to the hotel was told we could not use our debit card and had to leave a cah deposit of 50 euros which wasnt a problem, then when we came to book out (after a terrible night of riot police and noise) we were given back 57 euros, which we assumed was the room rate had gone down. We got back home the next day to a telephone call telling us they had made a mistake and they had given us 8 euros too much which was fair enough and agreed for them to use the debit card that was refused and couldn't be used in the hotel the day before they could now use. when we booked the hotel we booked it for £73 when we looked at our account they had taken £103. we will never use this chain of hotels again, we had booked on a non-refundable price so we can not understand how they can change the price now and 8 euros does not account for this discrepency.
