NH Amsterdam Schiller
Ranked #149 of 373 Hotels in Amsterdam
GreenLeadersSilver level
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We have just returned from 2 nights staying at the NH Schiller. The hotel is in a perfect location with plenty of cafes and restaurants in the area.

The hotel is an old building which adds to the character of the place. In my opinion it does not need to be renovated like previous reviewers have said, by doing this it would lose all of its charm and character. The reception is quite a large area with a restaurant to the side.

The receptionists were extremley friendly, speaking excellent English. They appeared very helpful.

The rooms were a decent size. We did stay on the second floor to the back of the hotel, and we heard no noise whats so ever. In fact this was one of the quietest rooms in which i have ever stayed. There is a plasma TV and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The bathroom was spacious with a lovely powerful shower. The room was extremly clean and tidy. There was a hair dryer in the bathroom.

As previous reviewers have said, there is no air conditioning in the room, however the fan they provided was adequate.

Outside of the hotel there are several 'coffee houses' within close distance, but remember this is Amsterdam and you never go a far before you come across one of these wherever you stay.

Remember to add a 5% city charge on top of your hotel cost. We never had breakfast in the hotel as there are plenty of cheaper options nearby.

We decided to walk to the hotel from the train station instead of taking a taxi or metro. It only took about 20 mins to do so.

If i ever came back to Amsterdam i would definately stay here.Go with an open mind and embrace their culture and environment.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel

Nice, clean hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. Polite staff. Cant say nothing about breakfast there, didn't buy it for extra price. Just close was nice cafe to have breakfast there, for half price. We booked this hotel just night before and it was almost 50% promotion, thats why price was really good, especially comparing to other hotels in Amsterdam. Is very expensive city for accommodation. Again want to say, location is really the best. Recommend.

The hotel location is in the heart of old centre of Amsterdam, everything around you, it is an old hotel, with average quality, fair in case of reasonable price, rooms sizes are good, but need some renovation, globally it is decent for couple of days

Room Tip: Rooms on the Ramblandt square

I booked this hotel and wasn't sure what to expect in light of the mixed reviews.

For starters, YES there is no air conditioning. But honestly it's not a very hot country. Some people feel the need for their environment to be arctic, and that's not the hotel's fault. My stay was in August and I never had a problem with the room being hot. In fact, they were kind enough to have left a fan for us in the room (which we hardly needed).

The toiletries smell awesome- like green tea. There is complimentary wifi, even in the rooms.

The staff are very kind and helpful and multi lingual. I really appreciate that upon check in, we were asked whether or not we preferred a front facing room. Obviously, we opted for a back room. Even in light of the noise coming from the nightlife spots nearby, we couldn't hear much from our room.

The location of this hotel is OPTIMAL. Close to the tram and the underground train, and RIGHT by all the action- MANY restaurants, bars and coffee shops nearby.

We had three days in Amsterdam and stayed at NH Schiller the whole time. I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future, but I would never stay in a front-facing room, as the noise would undoubtedly be unbearable.

Room Tip: Do not stay in a room facing the front of the hotel.

Great location. Lack of air conditioning is the fatal flaw. Building is musty, dank and dirty and in desperate need of refreshment. Certainly past it's prime. The value is good, but is definitely below four star level. Most rooms are small with lots of rough edges. Front rooms on the Rembrandtplein are noisy, while rooms on the back of the building are relatively quiet. Somewhat depressing to return to after appreciating the true beauty of Amsterdam

Have just spent 2 nights in this hotel. We found staff very welcoming and friendly on our arrival. Rooms were small but very clean an had all amenities needed from hairdryer to coffee making facilities. Towels and bedding were very clean. Breakfast was more than adequate. The location was brilliant with loads of bars and restaurants right on the doorstep. The trams were right outside hotels doors straight to and from central station we caught the number 9 tram. For the price we paid we were satisfied although modernisation is needed in some areas of hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room at back if you don't sleep too well.

Ok reading the reviews on here luckily we got a room at the rear of the hotel which overlooks onto the back of a quieter residential area. The hotel is in the beating heart of Amsterdam so if your a ruddy moan a lot then this probably isn't the place for you. The room that we had appeared to be the smallest on the floor plan but it was still an adequately sized with a proper double bed which was supportive and we requested extra pillows which were brought to the room. The TV had access to range of stations in various languages. The bathroom was clean with a bath and shower head, although the water pressure on the shower wasn't a power shower. The room was tidied and beds made up every day which given some of the reviews on here it almost came as a surprise to me. The staff were very helpful although we couldn't check in early on our first day they were happy to hold onto our cases till later and also after check out this allowed us to make the best of time in the city. When my partner was feeling poorly they had paracetamol at the desk and were happy to offer advice on where to hire bikes. The decor of the hotel in the main foyer and restaurant was under going restoration but was beautiful and in art decor style. The quirky main lift is interesting. Just a quick note don't forget the 5% city tax which is payable on accommodation only on check out. In respect to Amsterdam all you want in a city is here; much nicer than London. The hotel fronts onto Rembrant Square just bear in mind what you see immediately outside the hotel is 'lively' I would say a bit chavy nightlife and a couple of smoking dens which quite frankly stink. The council hoses down the area on mornings which makes it pleasant to pass through on the daytime.The hotel reassuringly keeps the main door locked on weekend nights and you will have to give room number and name to gain entry. A wise move given some of the human effluent floating around late at night in the area it is safe but full of chavs and dope heads on a night out.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the back
