“Amazing location, staff and value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Rembrandt Square Hotel has really exceeded my expectations. for only 15 EUR a night, we stayed in a hostel with great location, staff and value. The hotel itself is kind of worn out and a bit old but the friendliness of staff and great location makes up for everything. Some people complained in their reviews about the sounds coming from the club downstairs (faded bass and beats) which is true, but hey, you're not in Amsterdam to sleep. You're most likely to be joining the party than staying in your room. Also, be prepared to go up the stairs with your bags.

The room also contains a kettle and complementary coffee and creamer which was a simple nice gesture from the hotel.

A shout out to the great receptionist Chris, thanks for being awesome and helpful.

Definitely recommended for backpackers and young groups who are not picky about the luxury of the place.

We stayed for 1 night in this hotel and I can say it is excellent value for money. It is situated in the center so you have easy access to everything, shops, bars, clubs and restaurants and it is not noisy at all.
The room was basic but very clean, a bit cold but the staff were extremely helpful and they quickly fixed that and they also helped me to charge my phone as I left my adapter home. Much appreciated.
I would definitely go back.

When booking, suggest you request NOT to be on the 4th floor, or even 3rd. Lots of twisty stairs, not great with suitcase or after a skinful.
Rooms very basic, clean, shared bathroom with 4 other rooms, ours was quite dark even when the lights had warmed up.
Location is good, lots of bars and shops, just may be worth taking earplugs if you're a light sleeper, especially for those rooms on the front of the hotel.
Breakfast is served in the club two doors down. Sliced bread, cereal, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yog, ham, cheese;a basic continental (no danish, fresh bread) but the sandwich toaster was the godsend.
For a girls/boys weekend away, does the job just fine. Would NOT use for a romantic trip, need somewhere a bit more upmarket for that.

Room Tip: 15 or anything on 2nd floor, ask to be towards the back if you're a light sleeper

We stayed at this hotel just for the one night.

Comfy beds ( although mine had a broken slat i couldn't really tell). Our room (#15) was really large. There were two sets of stairs making it seem more spacious, with a little mini bathroom. The bathroom, although gloomy was equipped with a good quality shower.

The receptionists were all really lovely. Access was really easy, 24/7.

Warning: This hotel is noisy. It's on the square which is busy even during the week. We expected this, but ask for a room at the back of the hotel like we had, and it was barely audible :) Also, being on top of a coffee shop, there is constantly a strong smell of weed!

^ These are all minor problems though. This hotel was amazing for how much we paid!

We only stayed for two nights, and i had no experience in Amsterdam hotels, we had problems with the not so obvious entrance to it ( its next to a smoke shop) , you have to ring to get someone open the door, so a couple of times we had to stand in the rain for several minutes ringing over and over so someone opened the door. Then the stairs, i know that is something more to do with the architecture of the city but they are a little steep and drunk people will have some problems dealing with them.

I found it clean at least our rooms, but it is a little gloomy and just not very welcoming. Its okay i guess, but it wasn't that cheap either.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and were extremely impressed with every aspect of the hotel. Normally photos shown on hotel websites can be a little skewed, but these were true to life. The rooms were extremely clean and perfect for our short city break. The location is superb for young travellers with interest in going out at night as it was in the centre of the Rembrandt square itself, which is very easy to get to from the train station by tram, or even just a short walk of 10 mins. Whilst many reviews said that noise was an issue, i did not find that to be true as we didn't arrive back at the hotel until after all the clubs were closed! Because of this, the 24/7 reception was a godsend as they require you to ring a bell to be let in (which was fine by me as it ensured our safety). The reception staff were lovely and could not do enough for you and I would be more than happy to stay again, and probably will in a few months! Whilst each bedroom does not have a bathroom, two bathrooms are shared on each floor, but they were so clean you wouldn't have known there was anyone else in the hotel! Moreover, the room did have a sink in so we could brush our teeth in our PJ's. My one and only criticism was that the smell from the coffeeshop below did travel up into our room, however this was not a huge issue as you quickly got used to it as pretty much the whole city smells like this too.
Thank you to Rembrandt Square hotel for making my stay so enjoyable!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the square had a great view.

Me and my brother stayed here for 3 nights and we had a fantastic stay. We were on the fourth floor which was not a problem as up there we didn't hear any of the noise from the clubs below the hotel. The room was a perfect size for us and having a good fan in the room was very helpful. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. As for the location, well that for me was the best thing about this hotel. It is on the busy Rembrandt Square surrounded by restaurants and bars and Smokey's Coffeeshop is directly below the hotel if that is your kind of thing. One minor inconvenience was the shared toilets/showers however with two on every floor it means there is two toilets/showers shared between only five rooms so there were no queues to get in. There is also a toilet at reception. If I was going back to Amsterdam then I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: If you dont mind stairs, get a room nearer the top as it will block out most of the noise from the n...
