A nice place to stay for the business/older tourist crowd. Loved the luggage check as we arrived at 6 am and didn't want to haul around suitcases 'till the 2 pm check-in. In fact, our bags beat us to the room. The service was good. Helpful with directions and nice to buy museum tickets in advance so no standing lines at the museums. Special mention for Rose, a lovely young woman who was very helpful and friendly. I had requested a smoking room with Double bed on canal and got exactly that. Top floor and two large window that completely opened giving a great view of the skyline and the canal. Fairly quiet even with construction going on down the street. Bathroom was good size but shower was wonky. Even had a nice wardrobe with hanging area and shelves. They don't want you smoking the wacky-tabacky in the hotel, but HELLO, you are in Amsterdam! - Go a few doors down to Magic or up two blocks and take a right to Grey Area.
And the rate was $115Euro a night! Good deal if you ask me.

Beautiful hotel, Perfect Location

Stunning both inside and out. lovely warm atmosphere and the staff were great. Room was spacious and overlooked the canal. Everything i was hoping for.

The only down side to it, is if your going to amsterdam to smoke the wicked herb, you feel a bit paranoid staggering into the lobby of this hotel, as it is full of business guests etc.
gave me the giggles everytime. But a nice brandy and coke sorted that out.
the hotel does not allow weed to be smoked at any time in your hotel room. But saying that the bench outside provides a beautiful scene especially at night to get wasted!!!!

extremely welcoming and i miss the place terribly!!

Unique Quality: Breckfast, roomservice, the bench outside!!
lovelly welcoming staff, free safety deposit box behind reception.
bar area was lovely all was cool!!!

Directions: 5 min walk to dam square

Good Hotel, Great Base

We had booked a weeks stay at the Rembrandt Residence. We had stayed here for a week last year so were not too worried. We arrived quite late in the evening due to Amsterdam having suffered a very heavy snowfall and our flight being delayed. On arriving we were told that the high floor room we had requested had been given to someone else so we had a room on the ground floor, but they could move us the following day if we wanted. The room we got was horrible. So tiny you could hardly get round the bed and a tiny little bathroom. We also discovered that you could hear all the noise from the hotel lobby, people coming up the steps and buzzing to be let in all night long.

The following morning we were moved to a room on the top floor. It was lovely. A huge room, great big sash windows, a great view over the canal (see picture) and the bathroom was great. A lovely hot deep fullsize bath and a power shower. Brilliant.

This hotel is great if you want a comfortable stay in the centre of Amsterdam, but not in the Red Light District.

Directions: Just behind Dam square.

Rembrandt Residence Traditional Hotel Dam Square

A group of us are going to be taking over this hotel November 19-26. 2005. I can't wait! Here is a "Site Inspection Report" done by a travel agent. When we get back I'll give the low down-word up.

Independent Report

This hotel is a stone's throw from the oldest part of Amsterdam and the Royal Palace and overlooking one of Amsterdams beautiful canals.
The rooms vary in size from small to large due to the age of the building. They are modern but simple in style, although some still retain their original wooden beams which are typical of the buildings from this century. Along with the bathrooms, their condition is fair to good. A very small percentage have, however, been totally renovated in modern style, and are in very good condition.
The hotel does not have its own restaurant, but there is a breakfast room situated on the lower ground floor with natural daylight which can be used for groups.
It is uniquely set in four 17th century houses right on the city's most prestigious canals. The facade is typical of this distinct style.
In contrast to the traditional exterior, the small lobby is more modern, but there are still strong touches of tradition. This area also includes a cosy bar and comfortable lounge area.
This hotel is ideal for both groups and individuals wishing to experience the true character of old Amsterdam. However, please note that it is not possible for coaches to reach the entrance of the hotel so drop off will have to be in a nearby street. 04/04/jg

one of my favorite hotels in the dam

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 19, 2004

ive been staying here now going on 20 years.
this place use to be called the karina rembrandt then they changed the name maybe 5 or 10 years ago. ok for the price this place is great. 80 euro's per night for single room. breakfast and all taxes is included. and the breakfast is not bad at all.
what i really like about the place is the location. you just cant beat it. you are with in walking distance to anywhere in central amsterdam. the neighborhood is perfect.
there are many restaurants and pubs in the neighborhood along with some of the best coffeeshops in all of amsterdam.
the hotel does have a bar and the soda machines on the 1st and 3rd floor sell beer.
what more can you ask for the price.
ok the place is not a 5 star hotel but, your not paying for a 5 star.
check this place out.

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 7, 2004

I've stayed in alot of hotels during my life but this could be my least favorite. Every time you leave your room you have to give the key to the person at the front desk. This made me very uncomfortable. They weren't even friendly about it; just demanded the key each time we left! Showering: the worst I've ever had! The water fluctuated between scalding and freezing instead of mixing at a happy medium. By the time I was done, the water in the tub had reached almost to my knees and took a half hour before draining.
