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.

“3 day break to Amsterdam”

We stay at the Hampshire hotel for one night , the hotel was clean and tidy, rooms are not overly big but they are comfortable and to be honest we only slept there. The bathroom was very small. Breakfast was very nice and was set in pleasant surroundings.

“Perfect for its money”

Got room in this hotel by some discount. Even though promotional room was almost in basement, it was perfect for its money :) Yes, I didn't spend lot of time in room. Actually I only slept there. But it was always clean and hotel has very good location.

“very enjoyable time”

we stayed here for 2 nights 16/17 Nov. the room was clean and there was plenty of room for 2 of us, double bed, tv, table and chair and nicely decorated. there was a very good choice for breakfast and the staff were helpful. it was my 50th birthday and a complementary bottle of 'bubbly' was provided by the hotel, thank you again for this,much appreciated. after booking out we were also able to make free use of the luggage storage area collecting our luggage later in the day. there is a very good tram service the number 9 and 14 running every 6 minutes to central amsterdam, getting a travel pass to cover the days was a must. all in all a very pleasant and enjoyable experience.

“As advertised ”

Myself my wife and friends visited the Hampshire hotel for the weekend and found the experience to be as you would expect for a hotel in this price range. Check in was easy and the rooms clean but small ours had a great view of the park next too the hotel. Hotel was noisy at night as you can hear people coming and going from there rooms. Getting around from the Hampshire is easy as trams 9 and 14 run from just up the road and will get you to the centre and back. We brought a 48 hour pass on the tram which cost roughly €24 for two of us. When visiting Amsterdam again in the future i would consider using this hotel again as offers good value for money.
