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 Royal Zoo. Artis Royal Zoo 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.

“Good hotel for a mini city break”

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon to a clean presentable entrance, greeted by a helpful, cheery receptionist he got us checked in quickly with no fuss. Bedroom had four single beds, felt a little cramped but was okay as we only had 3 people if we had 4 then space would have been an issue. The view from our window was terrible, but didn't expect anything spectacular for the price and a city break. The toilet was clean and okay, nothing spectacular. One small thing... The furniture in the room was somewhat mismatched, but didn't bother us greatly, however if you were to go on a romantic getaway it would be nice to have a matching nice room. The hotel was located 2/3 tram stops away from the city center not majorly far, but not majorly close either. Walking would take a while so do not recommend this hotel if you want to save on tram costs. The tram costs aren't that bad, it was 13 euros or something for a 48 hour pass. Overall it was a pleasant stay but nothing amazing that makes me want to stay again :)

“Nothing special”

The room was very very small but clean. The staff is helpfull but a little bit cold. The street Plantage Middenlaan is very calm during the night...unfortunately many guests slammed their doors and it was difficult get asleep. This hotel has nothing special but the surroundings.

Very happy with the experience of this hotel. It is an excellent base for a visit to the city of Amsterdam. The surrounding area has many interesting aspects including a very picturesque zoo across the road and there are many excellent local restaurants on the block.

“Great location!!”

Just got back home from staying at this hotel for 3 nights - On arrival the staff were very helpful and we were able to check in to our room 316 at 10am even though it says 3pm - corridors etc do look like they could do with being modernised but it does add character. Room was bigger than others, decor dated, bathroom very small and again needed a good refurb. Bed very comfy! Windows only opened a tiny bit. We kept them open 24-7 as room got warm quick. Maid service each day - Breakfast lovely, staff very helpful. Excellent location right opposite the Zoo which is a must. 10/15min tram ride into centre or nice walk when weathers good. Would stay again - Thank you - PS book hotel shuttle there and back. We got ripped off with taxi from airport and paid 75 euro one way!! Have your transport through hotel not taxi!
