Bottom Line

The Atlanta Hotel is a 36-room budget property with few extra frills but an exceptional location in the center of Rembrandtplein. With its vibrant nightlife and good public transit connections, the area is popular with tourists, who tend to stay at this property. Clean, private rooms have well-stocked minibars, TVs, and free (spotty) Wi-Fi, but decor is dated and some rooms have shared bathrooms. There's no air-conditioning and guests complain of noise from the nearby nightlife. The hotel has 24-hour reception and a pleasant breakfast room overlooking the square, though breakfast costs extra. There's also no elevator. The Rembrandt Square Hotel across the street offers similar amenities, but includes a free breakfast -- though most rooms have shared bathrooms. Another, quieter option is Bed and Breakfast Amsterdam, on a leafy canal near Vondelpark.

Scene

Clean budget hotel with somewhat dated, traditional decor

The Atlanta Hotel is a fairly standard budget property right on Rembrandtplein, which offers more privacy than some of the popular area hostels. The exterior has a classic look with a dark facade, long windows, and top dormer windows, while the interior is traditional with lots of mid-century, chestnut furniture. There are few extra property features -- the reception area is mostly just a desk. However, the lobby leads directly into a small but pleasant breakfast room with red carpeting, a chandelier light, a wood-beam ceiling, and a view of the square. While decor is dated, the hotel is clean. The biggest complaints concern the lack of elevator (a slim, winding staircase climbs up to rooms), noise from nearby nightclubs, and lack of air-conditioning. The hotel is ideal for budget travelers mostly looking for a place to sleep while exploring the city. Its location near nightlife also attracts a younger crowd and groups of friends. 

Location

In the center of Rembrandtplein, a popular nightlife and tourist area

One of the hotel's best features is its location in Canal Ring, right in the center of Rembrandtplein. This popular tourist destination and nightlife spot is lined with hotels, bars, and restaurants. Most of the bars and restaurants have large terraces spreading out into the square, and the hotel entrance is between two of these terraces. The square is busy, especially in the height of tourist season. The area is well-connected to public transportation, with the Rembrandtplein bus and tram stops are just around the corner, a one-minute walk from the hotel. Most city attractions are reachable in 15 minutes or less by foot or public transport.

  • Five-minute walk to the Flower Market
  • Eight-minute walk to Rembrandt House Museum
  • 12-minute walk to Dam Square
  • 12-minute walk to Royal Palace
  • 14-minute walk to Rijks Museum
  • 15-minute walk to Heineken Experience
  • Eight minutes to Central Station by public transit 
  • Nine minutes to Anne Frank House by public transit 
  • 14 minutes to Vondelpark via public transit
  • 16 minutes to Van Gogh Museum via public transit
  • 33 minutes to Schiphol Airport by public transit

Rooms

Clean, private rooms with minibars and free Wi-Fi -- but a few pitfalls 

For guests who want their own space, this hotel is a step-up from a hostel with all private rooms (though some have shared bathrooms). While rooms are clean, they could use a renovation and sometimes have dated decor like textured wallpaper or floral bedding. Options include small and simple Single, Double/Twin, and Triple Rooms. Single Rooms with shared bathrooms tend to be long and narrow, with wood floors, white walls, and simple wood furniture. Deluxe Double Rooms are touched up with details like chandeliers and plush throw pillows. Windows look out on roofs, walls, or other limited vistas -- though a few do look out on the square. Guests have two main complaints: The first is noise from nearby nightlife, which often continues long into the night (and morning). It can also get hot -- the rooms have fans, but there's no air-conditioning. 

Rooms include safes, desks, hangers/open wardrobes, free Wi-Fi, and TVs, though some are old tube TVs. Unexpectedly, rooms also have minibars generously stocked with snacks, sodas, and water (extra fee), but there are no in-room coffee/tea facilities. Bathrooms tend to be clean and fully tiled in white with shower/tub combos or stall showers, but some of the shared bathrooms are tiny. Rooms or bathrooms have hairdryers and soap dispensers. Rooms with shared bathrooms may have small sinks, a helpful touch. 

Features

Breakfast available for an extra fee, and free coffee, tea, and Wi-Fi

The hotel has little in the way of extra property features or common areas: There's only a tiny reception space and a small but pleasant breakfast room. A simple breakfast is served daily -- bread, cereal, eggs, juice, and coffee -- but it costs an extra fee. Coffee, tea, and water are available in the lobby during the day for free. Reception is open 24 hours, and guests tend to find staff helpful. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
