Many great hotspots in the area

There’s not much chance that you’d get bored in this part of Amsterdam: there are simply too many great museums and other hotspots around Hampshire Hotel – Lancaster Amsterdam. You can purchase entrance tickets for various museums in the hotel, which will save you standing in a queue. Tips for great things in the area:

Museums
The Scheepvaartmuseum has recently been completely restored. Visit this beautiful building, the East India Company ship and interactive exhibitions about five hundred year’s of maritime history. Changing exhibitions are shown in Hermitage on the Amstel from the sizeable collection of the museum with the same name in Saint Petersburg.  Theater Het Koninklijke Theater Carré is the most coveted stage for artistes. That’s because of the hall itself, which has an unbelievable atmosphere, but also because of the list of legends who have once performed here. If you have the opportunity, watching a show here is highly-recommended.

Children
You only need to cross the road and you’re in Artis Zoo. Artis is open every Saturday until sunset in June, July and August. There are lots of activities and live music on these summer evenings. In Joods Historisch Museum, the children can visit the Hollander family. They can learn Hebrew and bake a kosher Challah bread. Magic butterflies fly around in Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. Tropenmuseum is expert in getting the children interested in the culture of other nations. Check the programme for special activities.

Park
Oosterpark is a wonderful place to enjoy relaxing, jogging, football or a picnic. Or to visit a festival in the summer, such as Amsterdam Roots Festival or Appelsap.

Market
There’s been a hectic trade in old books, second-hand clothes and bric-a-brac on Waterlooplein for more than a hundred years. Another traditional Amsterdam market is the multi-cultural Dappermarkt in Dapperstraat. Enjoy a Hollandse Nieuwe herring or a delicious kebab.

“Two night weekend break”

We booked this a mid price hotel in Amsterdam, I had read the reviews so requested a room on the upper floors to avoid noise, which was great and we did not hear any street noise. The hotel is brilliantly placed, we went to Amsterdam for Christmas shopping and it was great to be able to nip back to the hotel and drop off bags during the day. We arrived late, tired on a Friday night so went straight to the Bistrot Flo that is attached to the hotel, it was fully booked so we were seated in the bar but able to order off the Bistrot menu, the service was quick and the food was excellent, it is a bit pricey but was excellent quality and the bar had a nice atmosphere. Breakfasts were good and had a lot of choice. I would recommend this hotel.

“Lovely”

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in september as a group of 4 girls. Was pleasantly susurprised by the rooms. Beds were extremely comfortable and had amazing nights sleep. Bit of a walk into the canals but not unbearable, we walked every day and did not get the tram.

“Lovely area, good hotel.”

We stayed here for four nights and found the hotel very good. lovely greating from the reception, room nice size, some paint work a little tried but over all very nice. Coffee/tea in room. we didnt have breakfast as there was four of us so very pricey however my son doesnt drink hot drinks so i went to reception to ask if i could buy a glass of milk, he sent me to the breakfast room who kindly let me have some for free, breakfast looked nice. About a fifteen min walk from Dam square but you can catch the tram. Would recommend thank you. Bike hire was cheaper at the cafe a couple of doors away.
