Historical Traveler Reviews Rembrandt Classic Hotel Amsterdam
Lovely place. Breakfast included with a great rate from their website.
Super friendly staff. Liked the size of the room (stayed at another place the day before the size of a closet). Stayed here over February 15-18--only thing I could foresee changing was the door slamming at night time. The locks are a bit odd and I heard doors closing. It's a courtyard type hotel, so inner rooms can hear other's occasional conversations. Breakfast was grand. Great location.
Loved the Rembrandt Residence
We stayed at the Rembrandt Residence Hotel on January 1,2004. I wish we could have been there longer. The hotel was truly charming. The staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean with a beautiful picture window view of the canal. The bathroom was modern. The location was great.We were in a parklike section right on a canal.( It was just how I pictured Amsterdam to be.) We easily walked to the downtown section at night and to Central Station in the morning to get the train to the airport. I will stay there on my next trip to this wonderful city.
We've stayed at this hotel twice--the rooms are variable. If you do not like the first one you're give, ask to see another. We finally stayed in a very large room overlooking the canal. The room was great, but there was quite a lot of outside noise (from the delivery area right below our room) very early in the morning. In addition, the exterior of the hotel (overlooking the canal) is extremely brightly lit--while it looks lovely from across the canal, the light seeps into the rooms on that side of the building, even thru heavy curtains. That said, the hotel location is great, and the staff is very nice. Breakfast is okay--not good coffee, tho. If you can get a good deal on the room (discounts are often posted online) this is can be a good value.
After looking forward to taking my husband for his birthday on a 'grown
up' holiday, I was a little nervous at what we would find. Long gone
were our student days, and I was not in the mood for eye poping maiden'
s on our door stop.
Thankfully the Rembrandt was for grown ups who liked the finer things in life. We were first placed in what I can only describe as a bed with a room.
A king size bed with a mini sized room. Having to walk along the wall to get to the bathroom was not our game plan.
There was some noise from below, as we were directly above the
reception area. The staff handled our complaint with polite resoultion.
They offered to move us and take our bags. When we got back from our
day out, we were given a room on the 4th floor with beautiful views and
a complimentary bottle of wine.
The breakfast was a very 'Hostel' like probably taking advantage of the
fact that most of the guest were a little 'loved up' but it some how it
didn't seem to matter.
The hotel has plenty of character. Beautiful building from the outside. Our room overlooked the Herengracht at the front and this was a big plus. Decor and fittings in the rooms are only average but the staff are very helpful and the public areas are pleasant.
Good hotel in a handy location. Rooms tend to be a bit on the small side...but the facilities were fine and clean. We always take our own kettle to Holland as we find a lot of hotels do not have hot drink facilities in rooms!Excellent breakfast in a large restaurant overlooking the canal. Polite friendly staff. We would use it again.
Stayed there Sept 2002 - excellent hotel. Great location, clean - like a Travelodge in the UK. They all speak English and the breakfasts are top too.
Well located central but quiet
A well run ,clean well situated hotel. We loved this hotel it has a lovely view of the canal and is quiet yet central. The only thing that was missing was coffee/tea making facilities I suppose you could call room service but making your own is better. Breakfasts are excellent too.
This hotel is really as lovely as it looks in the photos! Great location, on one of the nicest canals in the area, the Herengracht. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with basic furnishings. The water pressure in the shower was incredible!
Three years in a row we have stayed at the Rembrandt Residence Hotel in Amsterdam. The location is not to be beat. The rooms are fully equiped and larger than most European hotels. The staff are friendly and fun. I have nothing but praise for this hotel. Already planning our next trip.

... tire perpendicularly hit my rear tire, and he flew off his bike and into the street. I went to see if he was ok, and I also retrieved my bike light, which he knocked completely off. He walked away and I wasn't hurt at all (Thank God). I was frustrated and embarrassed, because my bike broke in front of everyone because half of Amsterdam was wanting to cross this street. Once again, I'm ok, and the bike is ok too, except for the back light.
... stop. It was a pleasant green space with ponds, walking paths, and a playground. There was a large fountain in the center which was blocked off for some reason but the explanation was in Dutch. The fountain was operating but a full view was not possible. Surrounding the fountain was a huge blackboard barrier with baskets of chalk. Park visitors were invited to complete the sentence "Before I die I want to…..", which ...

We did our best to find breaks in the crowd and finally after about an hour and a half left the gallery for lunch but again a very long line. What we saw of the exhibit was extraordinary but the crowds were terrible and took away from the experience.

... doors on each sealed them in completely. This created a sauna effect where the steam from the shower filled each stall with speed and intensity. This at first was very claustrophobic, but after a while it became quite relaxing. After getting dressed Kiah and I made our way outside. The first thing on the list was getting food. So we walked past central station and into downtown and walked straight into the first restaurant we saw. It looked like a classic ...
... 10/2 -- We are now in Azay-Le-Rideau, a charming small village in the Loire Valley. About a 3.5 hour drive, mostly easy! Our hotel, the Biencourt truly IS as was claimed in our Rick Steves guide. On first impression, if we were to move to a small village in France, this one would sure be a candidate!! 10/3 -- Azay-Le-Rideau to Mortemart -- Another summary from sunny (84 degrees!) France. Yesterday we got Diane some pain med for her back and sadly left Azay. At ...
