I did enjoy my stay at the Hotel Rembrandt. But you have to take the good with the bad. Mostly good, though, which I’ll focus on:
- Great location. One 10-15 minute tram ride from Centraal Station. Nice neighbourhood with lots to see walking distance. I’d definitely stay in the neighbourhood again.
- Really good staff. Always very friendly and helpful. Without exception. Probably the best thing about the Hotel Rembrandt.
- Very nice lobby with loads of books and a beautiful breakfast room. Enjoy a good breakfast and then watch the ducks just outside the windows.
- Room 5 wasn’t great. A bit small and shabby (though the bathroom was nice). Wallpaper peeling off under the left window. There’s a large and somewhat disturbing print of a daisy which doesn’t quite cover up the wall where the tacky daisy-themed wallpaper has come off. They should just strip the wallpaper altogether and paint the room.
- I stayed for 7 nights and for 3 of those nights the shampoo wasn’t replaced and I had to ask for some at the front desk. How does the cleaning staff not see that your toiletries have run out? Over and over and over?
- There’s an inconsistent smoking policy. No smoking in the rooms which is great. But people were smoking in the courtyard below room 5 (less three meters away) and the smoke got bad enough that they might as well have been smoking in my room. I complained and the staff was courteous, but not really sure what to do. A notice in the breakfast room says that smokers can go to the street in front of the hotel. No one was really sure if smoking in the back was allowed or not. I ended up just closing my window (and giving up a nice breeze coming in). They should ban smoking in the back deck/garden.
But the nice staff and great location would make me recommend the Hotel Rembrandt.
