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.

“Good Hotel”

Stayed here for one night on business during Jan. Its situated very close to the town center and only a few minutes walk from the train station. The Hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were of a good size and spotlessly clean. The bar was well stocked and seemed to have a good menu with plenty of choice. The only issue we had was we booked a package of Bed, breakfast & evening meal and when we came to get the evening meal there was NO choice on the package. The meal was a set meal that the chef chose. On this occasion it was what they described as a mixed grill, this consisted of 3 tiny pieces of meat and a side portion of chips. Over all i would stay here again but wouldn't book the evening meal package.

Dear Paul, Thank you for your review on tripadvisor. I'm happy to read you had a good stay with us! I do apologize for the disappointing dinner you had. I have spoken to the chef regarding your experiences.He agreed you should at least have had some choices in the menu that he proposed to you and the portioning should always be alright. We look forward to welcoming you again and we hope you will give our restaurant a second change, With kind regards Marieke Dooren - General Manager

“Shower Temperature Sucks”

Everything is fine except the shower which really makes me hate humanity every morning. How come when you think you reached the perfect temperature for having that shower that wakes you up every morning, suddenly the water gets so hot that it burns your skin, then intermediately gets ice-cold and then back to warm again? Seriously guys, I have stayed with you many times in different rooms and is always the same, you need to fix this ASAP,. or you will find more customer running away to the Valk hotel...
Owner Response of Hampshire City Hotel - Hengelo
Dear guest, Thank you for your review, I'm very sorry you had such a bad experience with the shower in our hotel. I completely understand your frustration, a shower should have a good constant temperature and must not be a variety of hot and cold. I have informed the technical service, usually the thermostatic faucet is broke when this happens. But because you experienced this problem before, we will dig deeper and do everything we can to get the problem solved. I do apologize for the inconveniences and look forward to welcome you again soon! With kind regards, Marieke Dooren - General Manager

“Two weeks in Hengelo”

There is a good place in Hengelo for business and independent sightseeing as well. The Hotel is very close to the railway station however you can't hear any noise. Hotel staffs excellent, rooms are clean and they has very comfortable beds! Breakfast is good, the kitchen for dinner available only weekdays, but there are so many good place to eat & drink.

“So near . . . . .”

This hotel has so much going for it. Marcello and the Staff are outstanding, the location in Hengelo is perfect, the bathrooms and beds are spotless; so why the hesitation? I have used the hotel several times when on business in The Netherlands and for the aforementioned reasons will continue to do so. The last check-out was today - 09/12/2014 - and the same little issues remain. Although fully aware of the investment that would be needed it must be stated that the bedroom carpet in some of the rooms is absolutely awful. Likewise the paintwork is very tired and needs some life put back into it. That said if you want a business stop-over or base you will not better it. The one issue that causes me angst is that despite forwarding my room preference I was allocated a room opening onto a landing area with ice machine, sweet dispenser, stairs and lifts. it would have taken little to have read the request and allocated according to details given; until next time when I hope the request is heeded.
Owner Response of Hampshire City Hotel - Hengelo
Dear guest, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor, I really appreciate you took the time to share your experiences with us. At first I would like to let you know the first floor of our hotel is renovated in September this year. In all the rooms on this floor you can find new carpet and fresh paint work. Maybe we can provide you a nice quiet room on this floor when you stay with us the next time. We will continue this project in 2015 and start with the second floor. Regarding the room we gave you I can inform you the following; We always try to allocate our guests the room type / location they prefer, but I'm afraid we do not always succeed, especially when it is as busy in the hotel as last week. I do apologize for this. When you come next time, please book directly and inform us about your wishes, so we can inform you about the possibilities. With kind regards Marieke Dooren - General Manager

“Well located Hampshire”

Hampshire is walking distance from the railway station - a reason why I chose it. Also the city center with restaurants, shopping. plazas are walking distance. In Hengelo - getting taxis is not easy - being near the station helps. The last time I stayed in the Hotel was in Sep-Oct '10 and the Hotel has retained its decor theme.... It celebrates Industrial engineering through various installations and large photographs as artwork. It also hosts portraits of the City Mayors - the day I arrived was there was a function where the current Mayor's portrait was to be unveiled,
