Rembrandt Classic Hotel
Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
We were touring Amsterdam all day by bike. Starting with a trip to some canals on the north side, and the subway tunnel followed by the Ijburg area (man made island residential development - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IJburg). busy day all around, the bikes were good but not awesome, I was having fun, but not my ******.
Later we were …
... eating, we set out in Robert's VW for Zaanse Schans To see working windmills, cheese making, chocolate making and wooden shoe carving.
Supper at Kantjill & de Tijger (a fantastic Indonesian restaurant) followed by an evening site seeing tour led by Don and Robert closed off our second day in this remarkable ...
... and we were in the museum within a half hour.
I should describe the outside of the Rijksmuseum first: an imposing, red-orange brick structure that looked like a palace, with little statues adorning it. So it was a sight to see in itself before even entering. Inside, there were exhibitions with paintings by artists most of us have heard of (Rembrandt, Vermeers) and many others of a similar style from the same periods. There were many beautiful portraits ...
... have a more mature attitude, not to mention massively reducing the crime rate. We took a walk through the red light district, not such a spectacle during the day, but there was still the odd prostitute here and there, loitering in the occasional window, casually flaunting themselves for anyone who cared to take a glance. Again, funnily enough I wasn't tempted, although it ...
... and visit. We found some local pubs and restaurants and you can smell the “coffee shops”. We really enjoyed our time here and it really feels like our big adventure has begun. Tomorrow we will be back on the train but heading East and not going back to the UK any time soon. This will be the first ‘practice’ train journey as the massive Trans Siberian gets closer. Only 6 ...

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
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.
