NH Amsterdam Schiller

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

On the plus side, this hotel is in a central location from which it is easy to walk to most areas in the city, including the Center, Museums, and Red Light District. On the downside, because the Rembrandtplein is charming, it attracts people who spend a lot of time in the smoke cafe next door and then carouse a good deal of the night. Given that the hotel has no AC, windows need to be kept open. The front looks out on the noisy square, and the back has a western exposure which heats the room to intolerable temperatures on a sunny day. The restaurant is good, but often closed at night to accommodate musical performances which are very loud and run very late. Hence, ear plugs are provided in rooms, even up in the 4th floor where I stayed. Staff are very nice and will try to control what they can control, which is not always a lot. One final complaint has to do with Housekeeping, and that could be controlled. I stayed for 5 nights and had to do battle to have my room cleaned by the middle of the afternoon. All sorts of excuses were made, but it seems to me this is a problem that can be fixed. Again, I must say that the staff listened to my complaint and tried to rectify it, even going so far as to bringing me a note of apology and complimentary bottle of wine. All in all, I must say I would not pay the high price I paid to stay there again.

Perfect location for most Amsterdam attractions! Words to the wise: Front rooms face busy Rembrandtsplein, and the hotel furnishes earplugs. Front-desk staff helpful, friendly and efficient. Housekeeping staff, in our case, at least, WAY below average. (Trash cans not even emptied on daily basis.) Would stay again...

Location is awesome. Within easy walking distance to everyplace in the city that we wanted to visit. The park in front of the hotel is great. Very beautiful, peaceful, and entertaining in the evening. We spent of time out there.

We stayed in a room at the back of the hotel having read reviews that said front facing rooms were noisy. Our room was very quiet. In the morning, walking through the square, we could see how crowded it had been from the people cleaning trash (and it was kept clean) but at night, we had no idea that a crowd had hung out there. The location was great and all the folks at the front desk were helpful and courteous.

Hotel Schiller is located on the famous Rembrandtplein in the centre of the city and close to everything. The Art Deco hotel is lovely and the staff is genuine and extremely helpful. Great restaurants in the area and the holt restaurant is also delicious. Since the hotel is located in the city center there is always something going on in the area. Hotel provides ear plugs for light sleepers which is nice. Our front faced the square and it was great waking up to the culture of European city. Excellent food at the Sluizer on Utrechtsestraat around the corner.

This is a historic hotel and it illustrates the best and worst of what makes a hotel historic. The location was fantastic and the decor was quirky and interesting. However, the bathroom was small and the rooms on the mezzanine floors were small, cold, without a view, and they required one to use a half flight of stairs. The staff were knowledgable, friendly, and very accommodating. I would return for the location alone.

Hotel staff were all great in helping out to client's needs. Location, location, location is one big factor. The hotel is quaint style of charm and attractiveness. Will definitely come back to stay in the future.

great location in Rembrandtplein and the hotel is designed to highlight local historical artist Schiller. rooms are good sized and clean with simple design.

The Hotel was comfortable. The staff was courteous, frendly and helpful. The neighborhood, however was noisy at night especially with the pot smoking and the occasionly fist fight. The nearby Starbucks on Utrechtsestraar 9 was handy for morning coffee and there were some fine restrantrants further south on the same street.

The hotel itself is average, but a bit pricey. The location is absolutely horrible, unless you want to be surrounded by lots of activity and noise all night long. Rembrandtplein turns in to a bustling bar and night club scene that stays loud until around 5 a.m. on the weekends and 2 a.m. on the weekdays. I was originally given a first floor balcony room as I requested smoking (and the only smoking they have is on the balcony). You do NOT want to stay on the balcony side of the building. It is extremely loud from the clubs that are situated right next to the hotel. This is coming from someone that regularly stays in the middle of midtown Manhattan without a problem. If you get one of the rooms on the side of the building opposite of the square, it is not bad (although can still be heard). The rooms are small per European standards, but clean. The location itself is very central to transit (tram lines 9 and 14 are right out the door and the metro is a block away) and is within a half mile walking distance to Museumplein and the Centraal Station area.

This hotel was one of the interesting buildings on Rembrandt square. it was decorated in art deco style and really interesting. The staff was neither overly friendly or mean but did speak a multitude of languages. The room was spacious, clean and well taken care of. I would suggest this hotel for the younger crowd as it is on Rembrandt Square, a popular area of bars and clubs, which can be very noisy at nighttime. Three stops on the #9 tram from centraal station and you are there!

Good Experience but rooms facing the front of the square are quite noisy. I request to switch in the back of the hotel (fully quiet). Service and clean are very OK. reccomended.

We stayed 5 days at the hotel, which is located right on the 9 tram line and walkable to all the sights. Great food options and gay/straight bars close by, not to mention all the museums Amsterdam has to offer. Hotel was clean and staff professional. Our room had a double bed and was fine for a few days but if longer than too small. No ice machine but bar downstairs can give you some ice in a small bucket. Rembrantplein square gets busy at night so stay in a room facing the back of the hotel, which was very quiet.

What a wonderful weekend! The rooms are super clean, great size for Europe, and such an amazing location! Guest services was also so so friendly and very helpful with directions and supplying a bevy of maps. Would highly recommend and will absolutely stay again the next time I am in Amsterdam!

It was our first trip to Amsterdam and we chose the hotel purely based on location. Rembrandt square is a great place to stay. The square is full of life and there are lots of restaurants right at the hotel's doorstep. There are 3 tram lines that pick up at the square which is really convenient! We had no idea NH is actually a huge hotel chain - which made it even better and more reliable. The service was great. I prefer big hotels though; not the bed and breakfasts or smaller establishments because the rooms are always questionable, as is the cleanliness, comfort and service. When we asked about the view from the hotel rooms, the front desk person gave us keys to two different rooms and let us pick our own based on which view we liked better! I stay at hotels a lot and no one has ever given me that option - it was quite nice. The beds were comfortable enough - by European standards. The bathroom was big compared to other European hotels but nothing as luxurious as you would find in a comparable hotel in the US. There was a large closet and TV and plenty of space. It was well worth the cost. We didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel at all but the lobby always smelled good. The hotel is right next to a "coffee shop."

nh schiller is in one of the most busiest parts of amsterdam, rembrandt plein, which makes it really convenient for those who are looking for easy access to alot of the local hot spots. check in and out went smoothly and the staff seemed friendly enough.

This was our second time to Amsterdam. Although we loved the hotel we stayed at during our previous trip, we thought we would stay in a different part of the city this time around. Ok, the only good thing I can say about this hotel is that it is in a really, really great location. One of the major tram routes goes right by the front of the hotel and it is in walking distance of lots of major sites, shops, and restaurants. There is even a coffee shop right next door. We went to a concert at the Melkweg and that was within walking distance, even on a rainy March evening. When I saw the photos on the Orbitz website, the rooms looked really nice, newly remodeled, and clean. Wrong, wrong, and wrong. The room was really tiny and we payed WAY too much for what we got. Internet use was not free, nor was there a free breakfast- we were told we could have breakfast in the hotel restaurant for 17 euros. Yikes! Even though the hotel was definitely not to our liking, we were in Amsterdam- one of the most beautiful cities in the world- and not even a bad hotel could get in the way of our good time. We just wouldn't recommend this hotel to any of our friends.

Art,music and architecture

Was there on business trip, this hotel is located in great area if you crave some nightlife in the evening.There are a couple of very active night clubs across street. It also has Tram stop right there, so its easy to get to other parts of city.

The Schiller offers very nice clean rooms and its location is superb. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Our stay there was everything we could have wanted. We did not eat there, as too many other good choices existed nearby. The hotel is old, but had 2 lifts and modern bathrooms. The place is dated somewhat, but to us, that held much of its charm. The flat screen TVs and in-room stocked refrigerators and in-room safes were amenities that were definitely not dated. We would stay there again. The only negative stand out was the miserable grey striped carpeting in the rooms. It looks very economy. But the beds were comfortable and the bedding luxurious. Give it a try and we think you'll like it there.
