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.

“does what is says on the tin”

4 night stay room only 5 euros each way from airport 197 bus outside airport take approx 20-30 min and stops at Leiden sq which is couple of min walk to the Hampshire. Flower market 10min walk Local attraction all within walking distance (we never used bus or tram as we were not in a hurry to go anywhere) Look out fro the Piano karaoke in central station and then behind station you can take a stroll along sea front Our best attraction was Our Lord In The Attic personally found it more interesting that Anne frank House and no queues Anyway The Hampshire its self is a great wee hotel for short breaks Room was adequate, bathroom sink let it down At least it has a lift (unlike many in Europe) Complimentary coffee appreciated in the morning Bar appreciated for a night cap Most staff friendly and responded to our needs. Towels changed as required (usual drill in the shower for change on the rail if not) Toiletries provided on request and bulk standard shower/shampoo available in rooms not going to comment on the outside steps because I would assume anyone with issues would check this out prior to booking so was not a negative for me So if its clean, good location, and functional that you want The Hampshire is the place to go

“good location, but..”

The only reason I am giving this hotel 3 stars, because of location. Its next to the center of the city, tram available short walk away, a lot of museums in walking distance. concierge is very helpful and friendly. however, rooms are extremely small. furniture takes most of the space, hardly any space for minimum moving, forget about walking. No ac in the room, but since Amsterdam a pretty cool city , we were fine with fan. towels not changed too often, so as linen. there is also a special story with mattress, it will kill your back. Also the elevator.. its so small that I felt anxiety every time I used it. Also , be ready, there is a walk up as an entrance to hotel which means you will need to carry your luggage.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Theatre District Amsterdam
Dear Irina, Thank you for your feed-back with regards to your recent stay with us. We are a typical city centre hotel situated in three historic former townhouses. For more comfort and space we offer our Superior Rooms. I am very interrested in what room you were allocated, so we can replace the mattress you refer to. Would you be so kind as to provide us with this information? You can reach us at With kindest regards, Stefaan, Hotel manager

“Loved it”

This place was in a good location. The customer service was excellent and there was a lot of security. I thought it would bug me that they locked the doors after dark but there was always someone attentive waiting to let you in. The rooms were not that big for the price but compared to other locations still worth staying here. Best, Jose

“nice little hotel out of the city centre”

We stayed for 3 nights. Great free tea and coffee machine in reception. Reception desk staff really nice and helpful. The lift was tiny! Breakfast fairly basic buffet, but fine for our needs. Room was tiny and rather hot, so had to keep window open, which meant it was a bit noisy from the street below. We had a twin, but the room wasn't really big enough. Bathroom needed an upgrade. Nice location outside the city centre though, near Vondelpark which is lovely.
