From Vondelpark to Leidseplein

The range of art and culture on offer in the immediate vicinity of Hampshire Hotel - Theatre District Amsterdam is tremendous. Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum are all within walking distance. To help you relax, you can take a nice walk through Vondelpark or take in an outdoor café on Leidseplein. Tips for other great things in the area:

As well as the large, internationally-renowned museums, the area houses many interesting smaller museums. A good example is Museum Van Loon, located in a 17th Century building on Keizersgracht. This is home to the art collection from the Willem van Loon family, one of the founders of the East India Company. Tassenmuseum Hendrikje is in a monumental building on Herengracht, dating from 1664. As the largest bag museum in the world, it brings 500 years of bag history to life. The Bijbels Museum on Herengracht is one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands. The enormous collection comprises not only biblical but also Jewish and Egyptian religious objects. In 1805, Mrs Willet-Holthuysen left her 17th Century canal house to the city of Amsterdam, including furniture and art collection. The house is now a museum: Museum Willet-Holthuysen.

Foam Fotografiemuseum on Keizersgracht has large exhibitions featuring the work of famous photographers, but also smaller expositions by young talented professionals and amateurs.

Various theatres are within walking distance of the hotel. DeLaMar Theater has international performances, theatre, cabaret, musicals and family theatre on the programme. Stadschouwburg on Leidseplein offers evening theatre performances including those by Toneelgroep Amsterdam.

Jeugdtheater De Krakeling has beautiful performances for children of various ages throughout the year. Anne Frank Huis is suitable for children from 10 years. For climbing, gliding, football and running, children up to 13 can enjoy the indoor play park, TunFun.

The park in Amsterdam is of course Vondelpark, where you can enjoy a picnic on the grass together with all the locals. There are great, free performances in Vondelpark Openluchttheater in the summer.

“Great location, ideal base for exploring”

I booked this hotel with a little knowledge of Amsterdam, knowing I wanted to be near to Leidesplein and the museums. The hotel is in an excellent location, a short walk to tram stops, the busy Leidesplein area, the boat tours, Heineken factory and museums. When I checked in I was initially surprised at the size of the room as I felt it was quite small, but then I reminded myself we were in Amsterdam to explore the city, not sit in the room all day :) The room was clean, quiet and at the back of the hotel, the water pressure in the bathroom was excellent with plenty of hot water (only a shower, no bath in our room), they also had English TV channels in the room, which was nice. The staff were helpful, and we found the location excellent for our purposes. I don't think you could find a better hotel for the price in the area. I recommend this hotel if you want a central base for exploring as we did, but if you want a luxurious large room for relaxing, this may not be the best for you.

“Far Better Than Expected”

Arrived at the Hampshire Hotel for a three day trip to Amsterdam. The hotel is in a great location, a mere 5mins away from the Central Station, easily accessible by Trams 1,2 and 5. The hotel is located close enough to the many bars and restaurants which makes finding something to do easy, whilst being just far enough away to keep the outside noise to a minimum. My room was absolutely spotless, and the beds were comfortable. The rooms were certainly small, but were cosy. The only slight complaint is that there was no soap etc. in our bathroom, and the shower gel they supplied had run out. Other than that, I would have no hesitation in booking this hotel again.

“For the price we got more than expected! ”

I stayed here with my partner for 3 nights while visiting Amsterdam! It is a very good value hotel! The room was clean. The bathroom was spacious with a powerful shower. The bed was so comfortable! So much so it was hard to get out of it in the mornings! The staff are helpful. There is a vending machine and tea and coffee making facilities in the lobby. There is free wifi in the rooms. The location is fantastic. Especially to explore the beautiful area of Leidseplein which has plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. It is about a 15 min walk to Rembrandtsplein which is also a bustling area! It is 5 min walk to the Heineken experience. It is however about 30min walk to Dam Square and the Red Light District! The only criticism I would have of this hotel is that the lift is very small!

“Easy to get to from airport”

Take the 197 bus from outside the airport and 30 mins later its final stop is Leidenspein. Walk back across the Canal the bus has just crossed and you will see a huge Marriott hotel in front of you . Turn right at the Marriott and you will see the Hampshire hotel 5 mins walk away. Rooms were clean and the fairly priced breakfast buffet was ideal as the nearby bars and restaurants only come to life later in the day. I had a single room on the 4th floor. In common with the lift my room was also "cosy" it also had everything I needed. The bedding was not changed during my 3 night stay but I could live with that. The free Tea or Coffee was very welcome . If I go to Amsterdam again I would happily stay here again

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time reviewing our hotel and your recent stay with us. All rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. In light of our "Green Key Goals" we have decided to refresh bedlinen after three nights. This safes a lot of linnen to be washed on a yearly basis, which benifits our environment. It goes without saying that in case our guests request the bed linnen to be replaced moreoften, we will be happy to oblige. With kindest regards, Stefaan, Hotel Manager

“Brilliant location, great value, friendly staff.”

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The hotel was in an ideal location. Very close to many popular attractions. The hotel was clean and they offer free tea and coffee in the reception area which was great as it was very cold outside in January. I would recommend this hotel.
