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.

“My first 4 star Experience”

Soap dispenser was dirty, complained, that evening; still dirty, cracked bathroom floor, thick layer of dust on the coat rack shelf, stained bathrobe, and more. DO NOT STAY HERE, not your moneys worth!

“Good stay.”

Decent hotel in walking distance of the train station. Large, comfortable rooms. Big, well-lit bathroom with shower stall plus a bath tub, which is a welcome bonus. Hair drier and magnifying mirror mounted on wall - great for make up, shaving, etc. Nice thinking, Hampshire. The shower water, though, kept oscillating between hot and cold. All hotels should take note of the bathroom at this hotel - there is a whisper-quiet intake duct above the shower stall that's always on and it actually works! The mirror hadn't a trace of steam during or after showering - excellent! Why can't all hotels use this method? The room had a safe, which is always a plus, but it didn't work, seemed the battery was dead. Why can't hotels check these things after guests check out, and have maintenance change the batteries before the next guests check in? The hotel has no parking but they will validate you for a discount at the garage across the street (13€ overnight at the time of my stay). Free Wi-Fi but no access in rooms above the first floor. Higher rooms must use wired internet, which is so archaic, and rather unusable in this era of smart phones and tablets.

“Good hotel within an empty town”

The hotel staff were excellent, with ready smiles and helpful in every ways. The rooms were excellent, clean and with the right amount of space. The only problem I had was that my room card consistently had problems. I had to reset it everytime I had to use it. In the morning, after work, after dinner, etc. It's a card that is only good for one time use and the problem persist even after the staff changed a new card for me. There are a few supermarkets nearby and if you walk a bit further with directions, you will find Albert Heijn for a better selection. The train and bus stations are a stone's throw from the hotel and therefore, you do not need to drag your luggage over a long distance. Behind the hotel is a shopping belt (town centre) with a wide variety of shops but don't expect good brands in this little town. I return to the hotel around 7pm daily and most shops including some restaurants were closed. The town becomes almost empty and scary at night, but that means a good and quiet rest in the hotel itself. The only thing that I do not like about this hotel is its pricey breakfast and relative room rates. For that price I would be able to get a respectable hotel in Enschede, which is a lifelier town with breakfast thrown in. My new staff did not know the place well and simply booked a Hengelo hotel for me while I was busy with other stuff, when the nearby Enschede would be much better. In summary, this is a good hotel within a quiet town. Excellent for those who are here for business and simply want to return to their rooms after a day's work to rest and nothing else. A word of advice would be to book through a third party website like and not directly with the hotel to get better rates.

“For a few nights allright”

Its a nice hotel with a kind staff. The rooms are big and modern. Only the carpet need a refreshment because its not verry clean. The bathroom was nice and big. Breakfast was more than i expected so i was verry pleased with it. Enough to chose from. Its verry near to the citycentre and the cafe's are just around the corner. When i need a hotel in Hengelo again i would go back there.

“Standard Business Hotel”

Perfectly fine hotel for a business trip, breakfast is ok, though limited selection of hot food. Location is very good, only a few minutes walk to the train station and also to the town centre where there are a lot of restaurants serving better food. Only thing stopping this hotel from getting a '4' from me is the lack of an on site gym.
Owner Response of Hampshire City Hotel - Hengelo
Dear Sir, thank you for your review. We do have a special dayprice for a gym nearby. So maybe next time when you visit us you could have a work out in that gym. Hope to see you soon. Kind regards, Marloes Wensink hotelmanager
