Where's the REAL Hotel Rembrandt?

Lovers of Dutch art are probably more likely to stay in the Hotel Rembrandt, if they get the chance, than any other hotel in Amsterdam, but there's a problem. The current site with that name isn't actually the original Hotel Rembrandt, leaving some to ponder where the original is. 

Searching for a hotel in Amsterdam named Rembrandt turns out to be a little like searching for a pub in London called The Queen’s Head.

There are rather a lot of them.

Carl Stearns Clancy and Walter Randell Storey stayed in a Rambrant Hotel in Amsterdam in November 1912 when they rode their Henderson motorbikes across the Netherlands as part of their round-the-world adventure.

In pursuit 100 years later, Belfast men Geoff Hill (at 6ft 7in, the only hill in Holland), Gary Walker and I rode off the excellent Stena Hollandica from Harwich early yesterday morning and made for Delft, Clancy’s and Storey’s first port of call when they exited Rotterdam.
