A great time in the heart of Twente

Hampshire City Hotel – Hengelo is easy to reach by car and train. Ideal for a weekend away in the heart of Twente. Certainly if you really fancy a shop till you drop. In Hengelo itself there are surprisingly attractive and original shops, which are included in the special shopping walk route (highly recommended!). But there’s also perfect shopping in various cities just over the German border.

You can cycle to your heart’s content in the Twente countryside. Pump up the tyres to cycle over undulating roads, through ancient forests, along meadows, fens and streams. There are all kinds of great cycle routes in the area surrounding Hampshire City Hotel - Hengelo, and many great places to walk, too, including Twickel castle with its 4,000-hectare estate, past historic gardens and various museums. And after a long day outdoors you will certainly have earned a delicious glass of wine or beer at the bar of Star Café Diner.

Along paths and lanes!

The hotel is in a perfect location: in the heart of Hengelo, next to the theatre and close to the station. Hengelo is also the destination for a weekend of cycling and walking in the Twente countryside. Immediately outside the city you’ll find expansive forests, beautiful nature areas and pretty villages. So set off along paths and lanes!

The Klompenmuseum ’t Skopke in Enter is totally “Twents” with its hundreds of different clogs. More interested in technology? The Twents Techniekmuseum HEIM shows the history and the future of (Twentse) industry. The Historisch Museum is fascinating. It’s situated in an aristocrat’s home that’s over a hundred years old.

The Rabotheater has extremely diverse performances on its programme, both from local amateurs and from national companies. It’s also ideal for a great film evening.

What’s going to happen on the stage at Metropool is always a surprise. It’s the place to discover rising talent and local music heroes.

Shopping lovers are well-served in the centre of Hengelo. With the special shopping walk route you’ll miss nothing.

There’s nostalgia in the forest between Hengelo and Enschede, where the family amusement park De Waarbeek is situated. You’ll find many rides from the past here that are still fascinating. Nothing is nicer for the children than playing endlessly in two large monkey cages. Set those monkeys free in the Bengeltjes Speeldorp.

Cycling and walking
Smart cyclists will take in a few castles along their route; Twickel castle on Landgoed Twickel for instance, most of which is open to the public. Tuindorp ’t Lansink, an idyllic residential area from the 1920s, is also nice.

The Hotel is well placed in the middle of the City. However we had Problems with the new park System and missed so a parking of the Hotel. Also WIFI didn't work in the room, I couldn't work with my Notebook and nobody of the Hotel could help me to find a solution. The Hotel is ok if you travel by railway but if you have a car there better Hotel in Hengelo
Owner Response of Hampshire City Hotel - Hengelo
Dear Mr Senn, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I'm sorry to read you had some setbacks during your stay, regarding parking and Wifi. Fortunately the parking problems of the garage have been solved, but why you could not use the Wifi is I'm afraid still a question mark. I apologize for the inconveniences these setbacks caused you. I do hope we can welcome you some other time when you visit Hengelo. With kind regards Marieke Dooren

“Very pleasant hotel”

I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is modern, very clean, right in the centre of Hengelo and yet is on a quiet street. They do not have their own car park, but parking nearby is very easy and convenient. It is also less than a five minute walk to the railway station. The rooms were spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and very efficient. The food was excellent - very good buffet breakfasts!

“Great location, accomodating hotel”

My experience of Hampsire in Hengelo was very pleasant. Nice and clean hotel, at great location, close to the heart of the city as well as the train station. Staff was helpful and when a small problem with payment arose they were very helpful. Room was massive, but on the negative side the carpet is a bit outdated. Bathroom was also massive with both a bath and a shower. Wifi was extra fast and bed was excellent!

“No Airconditioning”

The hotel is fine but being a city centre hotel there is noise from the street. My room faced the square which has a popular bar next to the hotel. As the hotel does not have air conditioning with the windows closed the room became very hot.
Owner Response of Hampshire City Hotel - Hengelo
Dear Anthony, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I'm sorry to read it was too warm in your room and you could not open the windows because of the noice outside. I hope this experience will not stop you from visiting us again, we would be happy to give you a room on the other side and a fan, so you will have more comfort. With kind regards, Marieke Dooren - General Manager
