The famous Café and Bar Americain

The famous Café and Bar Americain

Café Americain
A phenomenon in Amsterdam and far beyond. Café Americain is a well known meeting place for writers, artists, performers and locals. In the beautiful art deco interior, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fine weather, the spacious terrace is a beautifully sheltered spot.
Every day between 14.00 and 17.00 o'clock, you can enjoy Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, scones, bonbons, biscuits and a pot of special tea. Every  first Sunday, there is a Jazz Brunch with live music, good food and a relaxed lazy Sunday feel. =

Bar Americain
No hotel bar in Amsterdam has welcomed such an eclectic mix of international stars as Bar Americain. Many famous guests have ordered a Lemon Jack or Sunset Amore here. Because cocktails are a house speciality. Not surprisingly, the bar is a hot spot for cocktail loving Amsterdam. Shaken or stirred, it's your call.

“Fabulous”

Wow! We were so happy to choose this hotel without having known the area. It's beautiful, the room is surprisingly spacious - a king size bed, couch, chair, viewing alcove - ours overlooking the canal. Clean!!!! Lovely. Air conditioning (thank goodness). And extra lucky- right on the corner of the Leidesplein area- didn't know that would be a great area for cafes and also not far from parks and museums! Very friendly concierge! Highly recommended.

“Great location”

Well located hotel for shopping, museums etc. our room had a view of the canal and had its own balcony. The hotel had kettle and tea, coffee in the room. the bathroom was small but clean. The double bed was actually two beds pushed together which was our least favourite thing about the hotel. We also couldn't get into our room until after 3pm but this is often the case with hotels.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Amsterdam American
Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and your review posting. Apparently your bed was not converted into a proper double bedding via a top matrass. Our apologies. We have created an alert in our systems to arrange this pro-actively with your next reservation. With best regards,

“Beautiful Hotel”

It is a full-service hotel. My husband and I stayed in a beautifully renovated room with a queen size bed. We were with a group of teachers on a familiarization tour. They have reliable free wi-fi and very nice meeting rooms. They also have a breakfast buffet with fresh breads, cheeses, and fruit daily as well as a hot breakfast buffet. The service was great, as well. Exactly what you would expect from a nice hotel. I would ask for a room on the back of the property if we returned because people on the main road out front can be very noisy at night. Their lounge has an outdoor courtyard we enjoyed daily. :-)

“Average hotel”

The hotel from outside and from it's position looked excellent. But inside especially in the rooms was extremely poor. Old and small beds and old decoration seemed that this hotel was never redecorated except the bath which was quite good. They charged me 3 products from the mini bar even though I used 2 of them. I've been to many hotels in my life and I believe that this hotel doesn't worth it's money.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Amsterdam American
Dear Guest, Thank you for your visit and your review posting. The automatic minibar charges any consumption directly to your account as soon as you have lifted the item. Even if it is just to inspect and is put back again. That is why it is an automatic minibar. As you have noticed, your 3rd item was not charged when you explained that you did not consume it. The decor of the room shall be dramatically changed after the renovation that is due. Maybe you want to try us again when this is accomplished? With best regards,

“Exceeded expectations”

Hampshire Hotel American was not only the best value, but also served as the perfect home base for a wonderful Amsterdam visit. We arrived early so our luggage was stored, and Concierge gave us discount vouchers for the hop-on/hop-off tram. Stop #10 is just across the bridge (5 minute walk). After check-in, we found a nicely appointed room, and during our stay enjoyed a good bed, nice bath amenities, and a GREAT location. Liedsegracht (pedestrian street) is just around the corner to the left, offering lively outdoor cafes, boutiques, restaurants, and fast food. On the right, crossing the bridge, it's a 15-minute stroll to the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, both worth visiting. Also, canal tours depart from right in front of the hotel. If you stay at the Hampshire House American, you'll maximize your Amsterdam experience and be treated to exceptional Concierge service.
