A quick update while we have breakfast in a cafe with free internet...yesterday we went over to the museum district and managed to catct a concert at the Concertgabouw...really cheap if you buy your tickets at 10am and you're under 30. Concert was at 11am, and then we went over to the Van Gogh museum - which is half price if your show your …
Christmas day and we're sitting in the Freedom Coffee Shop in the middle of the city...so far we've been round the red light district - which is actually really touristy, but has a few good places. We went into the Hash Museum - small and mildly interesting - and the Cannabis College - much more interesting and full of info, and FREE!
... at Les Halles, even apologizing that she couldn’t go right to the platform with me, but that she had to catch another RER train. I was having a bit of a stressed out day, and I really appreciated her help. Moreover, she spoke English flawlessly and sympathised with my plight of too much stuff and not enough elevators.

... Belgium beer, Belgium chocolates (a $50billion a year industry), and Belgium waffles. Comics isn't one of those things that would come to mind but they have the highest density of comic book artists in the world. As the language spoken is primarily French (no Belgiumese here) they have a great relationship with France. Cartoons like the Asterix series is one of the most popular Franco- Belgian comics in the world, with the series being translated into over 100 languages. ...
A final look around Brugge, markets, shops, and the brewery interesting tour finishes with some Belgium beer very nice as well. Then we climbed the bell tower (366 steps) in the centre of Brugge fantastic views and the a first hand view of all the bells and the mechanism that controls the ring sequence. Then back to the car and a 3hr driven to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Schiller Amsterdam
Loved it! Great location & nice rooms!!
Checked into this hotel after a real bad expereince at another hotel. First impressions were great but the staff made me loose it after wanting to give me different rate than what I booked and tell me how expensive this hotel is, like I cared! But then again, its amsterdam where service is not known or practised! Need more people for check out at peak time!!! Rooms are nice, spacious, great location, clean and reasonable size. Location does not get any more cnetral than here and the trees does wonder for a nice feeling to the atmosphere. I would certianly stay here again and would even pay the 'expensive' rate the receptionist was trying to pass unto me! Nice comfy bed as well!
Nice place to be
We stayed at the NH Schiller between November 09 to 13/2004 and I would like to recomend this hotel with a great location, very polite and helpful staff. Nice brasserie at the hotel with a delicious onion soup for the cold nights. Our room was very large and nice with a beautiful view to Rembrandtplein. Wish come back soon!!
This place is amazing for the price. Beautiful location right on Rembrandt square. Very close to everything you could possibly want. Very friendly staff. The bar and restaurant are beautiful, and very good food, reasonable prices for drinks. They have the coolest old style lift, but only about 4 people can fit, 2 with luggage, but they also have a regular elevator. We had a room for 3 on the 6th floor, with a great view of a coutyard in the back of the hotel. I Loved this place, and its the only place I'll stay when I go back. Plus, there is a nice coffeshop(marijuana) right next door, excellent for the walk back to the hotel!
We stayed here for 5 days, we had a triple room, which was much larger than we expected. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and their complimentary breakfast was great. Good location. Would highly recomend!
The Schiller isn't glamorous, but comfortable with efficient and friendly service. We stayed for 4 nights in late July 2004. We arrived early planning to drop off our luggage and come back later for check-in, but were offered the opportunity to check-in straight away on the basis that we could pick up our room key later when they had sorted out a room for us. While we were doing that, the Receptionist dealt single-handedly with a large-number of check-outs and calls (including some difficult customers) with good humour and without delay and still managed to find us an available room so that we were in fact able to be in the room an hour and a half earlier than expected. And a nice room too! Though blandly decorated in typical hotel-style, it was comfortable, large, airy and spacious. The bathroom was tiny, but adequate and spotlessly clean with a decent shower (often a rarity in even the best hotels!).
I had been told not to expect the Dutch to be overly friendly, like I am accustomed to here in the Southern States. So, when I arrived at the Schiller, I was more than surprised by the friendly service. We felt out of place coming in--the lobby is BREATHTAKING and I am a simple gal--but the staff really made us feel welcome, even letting us check in 2 hours early after an overnight (sleepless) flight.
It was our first visit to Amsterdam and we were glad we stayed at the NH Schiller. Our flight got in early morning local time and we went to the hotel expecting to just drop off our luggage and come back in the afternoon to check-in but they gave us our room right away....at 8:30 am! It was a lovely room on the top floor, hence, weren't too bothered by the little noise emanating from the hustle and bustle below. The room (approx. 180 sqft) and the bathroom were clean and relatively spacious, which was a nice surprise especially after reading review after review complaining about tiny European hotel rooms. The best part was that it was one of the few rooms having windows on opposite walls which made the room seem bigger than it was and gave us great views of the Rembrandtplein from one side and the city from the other. While we didn't get a great bargain on the room rate, we did feel that the money was extremely well spent.
Excellent for what it is.
Stayed here last year and I've booked a return trip. The Rooms are ok for a four star hotel but the bathrooms are good by any standard. The place is well kept and the staff are very friendly. There is a good restaurant/bar and breakfast was worth the cost. However the best thing about this hotel is the location. Rembrandt Square is full of bars and cafes and pretty much in the centre of the old city, a lot of fun (try and get a room over the square - but high up so you don't get too much noise.
Great but noisy location.
Room was small, but the view onto Rembrantplien was gorgeous. The square is packed with pubs and restaurants that are crowded and noisy until the wee hours. Take earplugs if you don't want to be awakened by yells of drunken revelers at 4:30 a.m. when the bars close. Service was minimal. Coffee maker didn't work. A bit overpriced, but worth it for the location. Request a deluxe room.
An excellent Hotel for a short break
A very comfortable old-fashioned Hotel on Rembrandtsplein. Lots of paintings and antiques, but lovely rooms, friendly staff, a lovely Art Deco bar and a wonderful breakfast! Very convenient central location for exploring Amsterdam, and an excellent Indonesian restaurant right next door.
