      Hidden gem


      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.

      Birthday Boy


      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.

      Canal View


      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.

      City break


      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.

      Fantastic hotel!


      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!

      Great Place


      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.

I was questioning whether to proceed with my mission due to the extreme temperatures; however, I knew I would be more comfortable on my new yellow ride if I had a working light and could touch the ground with my feet so I decided to stick with the plan. I had to stop twice and look at my pocket guide to Amsterdam in order to figure out where the heck I was going (much more difficult than one would expect with frozen fingers) and eventually ...

      The bus leaves from Amsterdam Central Station from bus platforms on the harbour side of the station. As previously reported, 10 Euro per person for unlimited travel on EBS buses all day.

      The towns of Marken, Volendam and Edam are all different in their own way and they are only about 20 km from Amsterdam - only about 30-40 minutes by road. The rural edges of ...

I would have to say their bus drivers (we had to take public transport into Amsterdam – Gerty is a tad big) are the best (friendly and helpful) bus drivers I have EVER met. So we bus it from our campsite to a suburb outside Amsterdam called Sloderdyke and then Metro into Amsterdam Central. We went over our first lifting bridge over a canal and actually had to wait for the bridge to go down after letting two yachts ...

      After the museum, I caught the last boat of the day, back to the start, near the hotel. The Jordaan
      neighbourhood is full of multicultural restaurants; I stopped into a little Turkish place for a really great, simple dinner on my way ...

As we walked through the bathroom there were some kids taking a selfie in the mirror. I was shocked at how disrespectful that was. At the end of the house was a memorial for the Holocaust, and it told all about how the residents ended up. After we went to the gift shop. Overall I was really happy to finally see the ...
