“GOOD HOTEL IN GOOD LOCATION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the NH CARANSA. The location is great, staff is friendly, breakfast buffet is very varied - but the WIFI could be better. As could the view from our room (but then again, it was quiet at the back of the hotel)... The area is great. Trams running in all directions all the time, so easy access to, for instance, the central train station. We also recommend the Three Sisters Pub (turn left when exiting the hotel). If you go to the bar/cafe ESCAPE (a couple of doors down, if you turn right from the hotel) be sure to have good time. The service there is extremely slow.....). One negative thing - the beds in the hotel are VERY hard... so if you are used to a soft bed, you might find them a bit difficult to sleep in.... :-)

Great location on the Remplantzplein, but that's also the problem - the noise at all hours (eg. 4am in the morning!!) is terrible, from party goers and trams. Despite the double glazing, it's difficult to sleep.

Otherwise, the hotel is clean, staff are friendly.

This hotel is fantastically placed to enjoy Amsterdam at its best. Had 4 days here with my fiancé. Great location. Tram outside the hotel doors, although very easy to walk to most places. Very clean and the most friendliest of staff I think I've ever encountered at a hotel. Breakfast was varied and tasty. Only niggle was that there were 2 single beds pushed together with single bedding, after requesting double at booking. Would certainly return to this hotel for next Amsterdam trip.

I gave this hotel 4 stars, rather than 3, due to its location at Rembrantsplein. The room was clean, but there was construction going on early in the morning, with workmen walking about on scaffolding front of the window. This might make some female travellers uncomfortable, considering how thin the blinds are. The workmen also used power tools early in the morning. Not so good after a night of Amsterdam fun. The lift was also broken, and you had to use a claustrophobic service lift. Go there for the location, and ask for a room at the back, away from the construction.

My boyfriend and i took a 3 day trip to Amsterdam and we were really happy with the NH Caransa. The location was fantastic, right on the tram and within walking distance from everywhere. The square around the hotel has loads of lovely restaurants, bars and amenities. The Hotel was clean and the staff were lovely but the room was very small and a bit claustrophobic. But other than that we were absolutely delighted and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The square can get loud at night so try to request a room at the back of the hotel

I can understand the mixed reviews for this hotel, it depends on the purpose of your visit. If you are there to party then it could not be better - Rembrandtplein is in your room all night with the noise. The hotel is central - you are on hand for the night clubs and bars and tram stops are outside the door to get you anywhere in the city.
The room itself and level of cleanliness were fine, staff very friendly. One small lift that was adequate as the hotel was not too busy. There are currently refurbishments that took out the rooms at the back leaving the noisier rooms on the square and side. Earplugs are provided, you'll need them at the front.

Room Tip: Try for a room at the back if you wish to sleep

Great location and decent room size.
8 minutes from the Dam square and 10 min's to the red light.
Clean and good value for the price.
Would stay here again and what you pay is what you get here.
No thrill but just what you need to explore and enjoy Amsterdam.
