Historical Traveller Reviews of The Rembrandt Hotel

Traditional and Excellent

from A TripAdvisor Member
I went to Rembrandt for my second trip to London, and my stay was as enjoyable as the first! The food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and helpful and the hotels decor was lovely! It was very warm and cosy and a joy to stay here!

Disappointing experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
Our 3-night stay at the Rembrandt was a bit disappointing.

Disturbed by the guests next to our room due to poorly soundproved wall, we didn't sleep well as they watched TV until midnight and set their TV timer to wake up at 5:45am! Although we asked them to turn down the volume, we could still hear their TV distinctly.

At the checkout, the cashier charged my credit card directly in USD instead of Pound using the hotel exchange rate (3% higher than the bank rate) without notifying me in advance. I noticed it afterwards on my way to the airport but it was too late.

Their English breakfast is not worth spending your money. It only offers very limited variety of food.

For the price I paid, I won't stay there again.

Convenient location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Rembrandt between Christmas & New Year's as part of a British Airways package. The location was fantastic but the hotel itself a bit worn around the edges.

Save for one charming and helpful desk person, most staff were not particularly welcoming. It might have been the effect of the holidays and associated increased visitor volume.

The hotel is quite adequate but nothing to rave about.

Found Our London Home!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I found this hotel through a lot of internet searching because I was looking for a very central location, close to tubes and busses and near museums, stores and restaurants. This was perfect. When we had a London friend scope it out for us, she said that she thought it was excellent but she didn't realize that we wanted something so "upscale". She was staggered at the price we were offered. We visited in November so we got upgraded; a little larger than other rooms we saw being cleaned.
But the beds were good, armoire, tea cabinet, luggage rack, desk with chair, in room safe, table with two chairs and a sofa! Plenty of light which is unusual in English hotels and B&B's. Bathroom had terry robes, usual amenities, marble floors and a Jacuzzi. Public rooms are nice and the staff is very friendly and anxious to serve. Amazing full English breakfast. Ambience is a little shabby around the edges (which we liked) but the brass was polished brightly and we felt warm and welcomed. And, did I mention, they have non-smoking floors! No real view because we asked for a very quiet room, but the windows opened.
Can't wait to go back!

Everything it advertised

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Rembrandt for 3 nights in July, 2003 and was very pleased. My room was large and clean. I loved the location; quiet enough but a block away from a metro stop and walking distance to shoppping and Buckingham Palace (it was a 20 minute walk to the Palace). The weather was gorgeous while I was there so I was very comfortable with the room temperature. It was nice to have a spa next door, although I was too busy seeing the sites to use it! I'd stay here again.

Rembrandt Hotel

from yunners
I booked a room at the Rembrandt through a great website called wotif, which I discovered through recommendations by some mates from Oz, and the website offered discounted hotels all over the world, all quite cheap...and I chose the Rembrandt as it was central and close to Knightsbridge shops and the Natural History Museum. The room I had was clean and had all the necessary amenities and room service if you were feeling particulary flush! Service was good and staff were helpful, and the breakfast was nice and fresh. Overall, a great stay at a bargain price, and I would definately recommend you all to use wotif for last minute rooms on the cheap!

Just perfect, and good value too

from VirginiaK
A friend and I spent 4 nights in the Rembrandt just now (November, 2003) in a Twin Executive room, and we'd go back in a heartbeat.


The room was a decent size, the bathroom very fresh and up-to-date; we loved the location right near the V & A & the South Kensington tube station. I was delighted with the availability of the heatlh club and spa in the building, and had a wonderful and restorative massage that improved my whole experience of London.


The breakfast room is large and bright, the breakfast a standard English breakfast (hot, plentiful, with the usual weird sausages & nice grilled tomatoes, and imitaiton coffe) -- we were very happy with it, and with its being included in the price. There is also a lovely lounge in the lobby, with lots of sofas and a fireplace, which we liked for a nightcap.


We booked through hotel-assist for L139 in a fairly busy week in London.

Staff is wonderful

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Rembrandt staff was friendly and helpful and the room was very nice and had a warm ambience to it. We had an executive king room with AC and I would recommend the rooms with AC. Heard several complain about the heat and stuffy feeling in the rooms with no AC. The upper portion of our room windows opened for fresh air. The included breakfast was generous but somewhat plain. Housekeeping was excellent. Ice had to be ordered from room service, somewhat inconvenient. Overall, a wonderful hotel and I would stay again.

Would stay again

from A TripAdvisor Member
Went to London with 2 friends over Labor Day weekend. We had an executive room, the only ones with air conditioning. We were a little skeptical due to the price to stay, which included breakfast. But, thankfully, everything was great. The hotel is in a great location, close to a few tube and bus stops. The staff was nice and friendly. I would recommend this hotel for your stay.

Location is great--except we may not return there

from chrisdonshaq
We were unfortunately in London during the great HOT spell in early August. The location for the Rembrandt is great, just a short walk from Harrods with the subway and bus stops conveniently located. BUT, the hotel is not all air-conditioned and the first night we spent in a miserably hot room with just a circulating fan which just proved to be impossible for both myself and my husband.The next day we requested and was moved UP to an air-conditioned room but the manager initially would not honor the rate we had been quoted when we reserved on the Internet. When we were ready to check out and I had the confirmation at the Internet rate, the manager on board credited me with the additional 20 pounds we had paid. Imagine my chagrin and disappointment when the credit card bill arrived and The Rembrandt had again billed us the additional 20 pounds! With management like that, we would not readily return to The Rembrandt but would look probably at Harrington Hall. We had a chance to go there during our trip and was impressed, the rate was cheaper and the rooms were air-conditioned. signed me disappointed with The Rembrandt

Top Local Tips for London

Duck Tours The duck tours is a bus that also travels in water along the Thames. This is a great way to do some sight seeing and the tour guide is really funny and makes it really interesting! Make sure you book this before going as it's very popular! I booked over the intetrnet. This was the best part of the trip and would do it again!

London Go somewhere else in the UK or only go for 3 days max. There are other places you know!

do not miss war cabinet rooms and Greenwich two absolute must-sees are the war cabinet rooms/Churchill museum, where Churchill ran the government below-ground during WWII. You walk through the tiny, fully preserved warren of rooms with the actual phones and encrypting machines, maps, tables, chairs and furnishings in use at the time. It truly brought history to life, and all our kids would love this (from teenager to kindergartner)! Also, take the easy tube/Light rail trip to Greenwich and wander the beautiful park, visit the royal observatory and stand on the prime meridian. Naval museum is designed for navy buffs and kids, and is surrounded with plenty of great space for running around and kicking a soccer ball.
