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.

“last august.”

when we got to the room we had paid for the same room as our friends but recieved a smaller room, once opening the window their was a room being built outside their window, who wants that? hopefully you wont get that room.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Lancaster Amsterdam
Dear Mr, Mrs Kendall T, thank you for writing you review from last august. Our hotel is based in a monumental building. The hotel used to be a residence and lateron was changed into a hotel. We have different roomsizes in our hotel, not all our rooms are the same. One can not compare it to a newly built hotel. We are flexible to our guests if it comes to roomchanges; if the room is not to the guests liking we gladly offer a roomchange. You mention that a room was being built outside you friends window. We have not expended our hotel yet so I am curious what this buildingwork should be. I do hope that you have enjoyed your stay in Amsterdam. Kind regards, Hans

“Nice hotel & easy to find”

This Hotel is in a great location (about. 20 mins walk to the red light distrct), its clean and we had a good size room. My only disapointment was the breakfast, not good at all and certainly not worth €15

“4 nights”

We stayed here for 4 nights and our stay was pretty average. It was overpriced considering the room was very small, the bathroom even smaller. We requested a double bed but were given twin beds which was a bit annoying. The room itself was nicely decorated and the hotel is in a good location if you are happy to travel by tram. The tram stop is about a minute away and there are regular trams to the centre. We had to pay a 50 euro deposit so bear that in mind when you stay, we got half of it back as you need to pay city tax wherever you stay in Amsterdam. Overall, the hotel was disappointing for the price. There was a sign advising decorating would be taking place after 9 in the morning but I was woken up at 8 by someone hammering outside our room!!
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Lancaster Amsterdam
Dear Sir, Madam, thank you for your review. I am sorry that your experience our hotel did not match with your expectations. A double bed is on request only and sometimes the request for double beds are more than we can provide. We do have an agreement with the builders about the workinghours and the noise they can make but sometimes they try to do something small for a short time without telling us. I am sorry that you were woken up by them. I do hope that despite your experiences, you have had a good stay. Kind regards, Hans
