Historical Traveller Reviews of Rembrandt Residence Hotel

Great location, great value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed in the Rembrandt Residence on business in October 2004. The hotel is in an excellent location, being no more than 5 minutes walk from Dam Square. What adds to the attraction is its location on a quiet street, so there is little chance of a traffic filled nights sleep. The rooms are of excellent quality for a three star hotel, and the staff are very helpful. What's more unlike many similar hotels the quality of the foyer area follows through to the bedrooms. Too often you are let down once the lift doors open on your room floor. Unlike other reviews I found the breakfast a little disappointing, but overall for the price paid, service offered and the quality of the room I had I was well impressed. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Lovely view over the canal - would stay there again!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed at this hotel on two occasions now, and cannot praise the quality of the rooms enough. On both occasions I have stayed in rooms overlooking the canal, and although so close to dam square, the location is peaceful and picturesque. The quality of the breakfast is a bit bland, but a small price to pay for good quality at slightly cheaper prices. I look forward to my next visit.

Excellent value for a 3 star hotel. Spacious, clean room, comfortable beds. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Nice big breakfast room with plenty of choice. Would definitely return.

Lovely Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
Have just come back from a 4 night stay at this hotel.

The hotel is easy to find and is in a very good location. It is right by a canal and not too long a walk from the station. It's in a nice quiet area but within walking distance of all the attractions.

We were very impressed with the room. It was a very nice size - quite a large room - larger than some places we've stayed in. It was very clean and well kept.

Breakfast was very nice. Something for everyone. Staff were very friendly and helpful. No restaurant but they do a very nice room service with plenty of choice.

I looked at the outside of some of the other 3 star hotels in Amsterdam as we were walking past to compare and I have to say this hotel looked like it was one of the best ones.

I would happily go back and stay in this hotel.

small room big billl

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently spent two nights at The Rembrandt Hotel having not been to Amsterdam for a few Years.
The location of the hotel is excellent just far away from the Damrak and red light district ...and the area has a gentle quiet air with a number of bars and restaurants within an easy stroll.
Upon entering the hotel the staff were curtious and polite and we were given a room on the third floor
which i can only describe as smaller than my garden shed .
The roo was clean and neat but I spoke to the reception who were unable to offer me a larger room until the following night.
They were very nice but I was under the impression this complaint occurs on a regular occasion ..
Even a discount on what i considered a hefty rack rate for a hotel of this quality was not offered and the following day we were given a bigger room with a great view (Room 401 403 405 ) and descending floors will all be bigger rooms so try and specify a room when booking..
Breakfast was standard and in buffet style.
Overall it was a pleasant stay but the rooms are a let down so if its a special occasion pay a bit more for a room...

Above Average

from bagoda1
Stayed here in February, 2004. The location is convenient to everything. Most everything is walking distance, but it you do not wish to walk, Dam Square, and its trams to everywhere, are very close. The canal side location is nice. It is quiet, and the staff was pleasent. It is not 5 star, or even 4 star. The rooms are small, sparse and old, but Amsterdam is so great we did not really care. Be careful. The canals look pretty much the same so it is easy to get lost, even when sobor.

stay in this hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Breakfast more than average (poor choice, eggs without bacon, no variety (each morning exactly the same things) staff rather unfriendly), plastic egg holders (never seen these before).At departure, nobody asked whether we had appreciated our stay, which should be a standard question and nothing more than polite.The cleaning of the (very small) rooms started early in the morning with the noise of dust cleaners and the smashing of doors, which made it impossible to sleep until 8.30 hours.The hotel was in general ok, but did not leave an overwhelming impression, more the opposite, without wanting to be too negative.The rooms were very little and not luxuoury. Very small bath room, no hairy dryer; no radio nor clock in the room.It is clear that this hotel is visited by tourists who stay once in their life in Amsterdam. I would be surprised if many people choose for a regular stay at this place.

Canal location incredible

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed in the Rembrant Residence in February, 2004 for several days.
This is a charming hotel, with lovely staff for the most part. The waiter in the small bar in the lobby was most polite and attentive. The location on the canal is breath-taking. We throughly enjoyed the breakfast, which was plentiful and tasty. My only complaint was that I asked how to utilize the phone to call long distance using my calling card. The clerk at the hotel, whom I asked gave me the wrong information, resulting in my being charged more than 40 Euro's in long distance charges to be paid to the hotel, in addition to being charged on my calling card. The instructions written in the room regarding long distance calling was totally vague. When I questioned my bill, it was the only time I saw staff members become extremely hostile and uncooperative. Of course, this left such a bad feeling that I refused to stay at the hotel on my return trip later this Spring.

Excellent hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed for 2 nights in late Feb 2004. Staff were most helpful.
Provided a no smoking room, gave us a view of the canal, even arranged the loan of a modem adaptor so that we could connect our laptop to the internet in the conference room downstairs. Room was clean and, although not large, was adequate in size. Breakfast was continental and plentiful. Dam square is less than a 10 min walk. Several good restaurants in the immediate area. Overall a very comfortable and pleasant stay. Recommended.

Top Local Tips for Amsterdam

GVB travel cards You can buy travelcards form the main GVB (amsterdam city transport (not literal translation!!)) office or the VVV (tourist information centre), both in Stationplein (in front of Centraal Station). These travelcards allow you to use the Metro/Sneltram, Tram and the city's buses they are available in 24/48/72 hours and are an absolute bargain, they also save the faff of having to get loads of tickets every time you want to go anywhere!

Iiamsterdam card is great value 54 euros for 72 hours of public transport and most museums etc. Great value and we save more than twice that.

Nemo Go to the Nemo interactive science museum to the east of central station. The activities are great fun (not just for kids!!)and it's a good place to while away a rainy hour or two, even for those of you that don't normally like museums. Go up onto the roof for a fantastic view across amserdam.
