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.

“Perfect location... But subpar accommodations ”

This hotel is centrally located close to many restaurants and bars, as well as the museums. Short distance to take a canal tour from across the Rijksmuseum. A 15-minute taxi/car ride from Schiphol or approximately 20 minute commute to Leidseplein via Tram 1 (towards Osdorp De Aker), 2 (towards Nieuw Sloten) or 5 (towards A'veen Binnenhof) get off at Prinsengracht. It's a five minute walk to the hotel from the tram stop. For those wanting to experience the Red Light District, it is just a 20-30 minute walk. Now about the hotel itself. For those who would be carrying large, heavy suitcases, note there is a little bit of a steep stairway at the entryway of the hotel. Check-in is quite quick & easy. However, do not expect a warm, friendly welcome from the front desk staff because that is non-existent. If coming in early before check-in, they do have a baggage room where you can store your suitcase and head off to explore the surrounding area. We booked a standard, double room which is quite basic. But it is very small, especially the bathroom. My friend & I are quite petite in size and I still found the room quite small. The bathroom only has a shower, which is maybe only about 3' x 3' in size covered with a curtain. Also, do not expect any toiletries except the shower gel & shampoo in one kind. Nevertheless, the room is clean and fulfills it's purpose for a good night's rest. We had breakfast included in our booking. It's nothing fancy; cereal bar, cold cuts, bread, beans, boiled eggs, bacon, juices, & coffee machine which makes cappuccino, lattes, regular coffee. The "coffee-bar" is open all day & night. It's okay to start your day, but nothing you'll regret if you decide not to include breakfast. This hotel also offers free wi-fi, but it's connection is intermittent. Also, you can only 2 devices maximum per room based on the number of guests registered. They have computers at an alcove by the elevators, but when we were there, they are out of service. Overall, I think this is not exactly a 3-star hotel in terms of the quality of the accommodation, amenities, & service they provide. It's more of a 2-star. It warrants the 3-star only for the location.

“Nice hotel but sold room to someone else”

Arrived at the hotel at 11pm to be told our room had been sold to someone else! The reason being they didn't know if we would turn up, id made a reservation and there was no option to say we would be later or telling us to let them know if we are late otherwise our room would be sold on. Got shipped to another hotel - Guy on reception was lovely and very apologetic. Told to be back at our original hotel in the morning before 12. We waited 30mins for a taxi to take us back in the morning (was only a 2 day trip so wasting the time we had there) arrived back at our original hotel to be told check in is after 12 but we had to be there before to show we were coming back so more time wasted! Was not impressed. Lady managed to get us a room ready (another 30 wait!) Hotel itself was nice and in a good location but not the best start to the trip and wasn't happy about having our time wasted messing around moving from hotels! Would make me question returning.

“Sloppy Service”

The room was very small, although this is a common problem in Amsterdam and there's not much the hotel can do about it. But we had some specific problems. Firstly our TV did not work, We were offered a different room but did not want the trouble of moving rooms. One of the towels was not very clean and there was a stain on the duvet cover which could have been red wine. Finally neither of the computer terminals provided in the lobby worked during the whole of our 4 day visit. None of these ruined our time in Amsterdam but it would have been nicer without them.
