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.

“Amsterdam visit”

The hotel is a little way out from the centre of the tourist area. Walks to and from the centre are very good, local pubs near the hotel are very good. A very friendly hotel, staff very polite, great breakfast.

“Small and noisey”

Stayed here for 3 nights midweek. Smallest room I have ever stayed in. Had to nearly walk across the bed to get around the room. Our neighbours either side were the noisest people ever and woke us every night at 3.30 am slamming doors. After the second night of no sleep I had to complain to the manager who moved us to a new room on the top floor. Slightly bigger room and less Noisey. On upside it's right beside the major tram stops so you have close access to the city centre and any major tourist sites. Hotel stay was expensive for room only and considering size of the room and noise it was defo not worth it and ruined my trip. Wouldn't be rushing back to Amsterdam again after it.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Lancaster Amsterdam
Dear madam, thank you for sharing your experiences over here. I am glad I was able to help you changing the rooms, it is good too read that you slept well after your room change. We do emphasize to contact the reception desk when there is noise from other rooms so we can contact the persons responsable for it. I do hope that despite the inconvenience you have had a good trip to Amsterdam. Kind regards, Hans

“THE RIGHT HOTEL”

We are been very good in this hotel, all we have read before book our rooms, when arrived in hotel we have check that it was real. We like to do promotion for Hampshire Hotel. The position is perfect, not in the center but only 15-20 minutes by feet for arrive in Dam square or tram stop at 100 mt. Compliments for beds, our group (nine persons) had all a very good sleeping.

“No air conditioner”

There was no air conditioner and in summer, their tiny little fan wasn't sufficient The air vent in the tiny bathroom made a constant whistling noise which could still be heard with the door shut None of the staff wished to advise us that there was construction going on next door, I wouldn't have stayed there if I knew or even a warning would've been nice because we were startled by the noise of a jackhammer very early in the morning You could literally hear every persons footsteps from above you (and no I don't think they were jumping around)
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Lancaster Amsterdam
Dear Sir, Madam, thank you for writing your review and sharing your experiences. The hotel does not have air conditioning in the rooms, we never have had this and it is not advertised on any bookingsite. We have placed fan's in every room though. The constructionwork next to the hotel starts at 09:00 hours untill 17:00 hours, this is what we have agreed with the contructioncompany. I am sorry that you experienced some inconvenience during your stay. Kind regards, Hans

“good hotel”

Nice hotel, good position near to tram stop Artis but the heart of Amsterdam is Dam square. The room is clean and if you are lucky is quite big.ask to reception. There is in the hall an automatic machine that makes a great cappuccino and other hot drinks free. When i will come back to this fabolous Magic city i will consider the option to take a room here. Good for couples and friends too.

“Vacanza ad Amsterdam”

Certamente gli efficienti collegamenti con il tram, la fermata è a pochissimi metri dall'hotel, fanno della struttura un luogo ubicato in un quartiere tranquillo ma alla portata di tutto: tram diretto per la stazione, musei, centro (raggiungibile anche a piedi),ecc. Il personale gentile e disponibile:ho avuto un problema con il phon della camera in tarda serata e me n'è stato fornito uno provvisorio; l'indomani mattina hanno provveduto a sostituire tutto il blocco. Colazione ok, più che adeguata per una struttura 3 stelle. Nelle immediate vicinanze sono presenti vari locali. La nota negativa l'assenza di aria condizionata, che con le giornate di caldo non sarebbe dispiaciuta, ed inoltre, considerando che la nostra camera era prospiciente un terrazzo ospitante le apparecchiature degli impianti, il rumore risultava un pò fastidioso.Nel complesso è stato un soggiorno positivo e se dovessi ritornare ad Amsterdam prenderei in considerazione di soggiornare nuovamente in questo hotel.

Alleen de binnenkomst al is één en al gastvrijheid. Vriendelijke personeel bij de incheck balie; zalige koffie uit de machine. In de kamer hadden wel wat meer koffie/theezakjes en suiker mogen worden neergelegd.........
