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:

Museums
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.

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

Theatre
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.

Children
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.

Park
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.

Public transport
The Location offers an easy access to the public transportation. The airport bus 197 stops right at the doorstep of the hotel, which makes it easy to make your way from Schiphol for about €5,-.

“Great Location”

We had six rooms at the Theater District Hotel for a three-night stay in Amsterdam. By US standards, the rooms could probably be considered more like dorm rooms than hotel rooms and the bathrooms are like closets - very small. The breakfast is cold, but sufficient with cereal, yogurt, fruit, breads/rolls, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea, and cheese and meats. There is a dining area open round the clock with free coffee and a bar if you want to purchase other beverages. If you get an upgraded room, you can overlook the canal, but then you are on the street and it can get a bit noisy. Other than that your view is either of a roof or the back of another building. I found the bed comfortable but a bit soft and low to the floor. Bottom line though - I slept well every night. Security is good - your room card must be used to activate the elevator or open the door to the stairs and there is always someone at the front desk. There are two small lifts in the hotel and it is cut up a bit, but rather typical of the old buildings that are now European hotels. If you're looking for spaciousness and flash, this won't work for you. But, if you are looking for a clean, local hotel with an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff (Carla is wonderful) and one that is located within walking distance of many attractions, you can't beat this hotel. In less than 10 minutes you can walk to the Van Gogh Museum, Key Tours Pick up location, Diamond Museum, Rijksmuseum, and Vondel Park. You are within 3 minutes walking distance to pick up the Hop-On-Hop-Off Canal Bus and lots of restaurants and the Anne Frank House is about 15 minutes walking distance. WiFi is free. The biggest issue we found with this hotel is the front steps. There are about 7 steep steps from the sidewalk to the lobby.

“Nice simple hotel”

This is a small simple hotel. Basic clean rooms (we had superior), pleasant staff, simple continental breakfast but good. Great quiet location near the Leidesplein restaurant and bars area. Plenty of eating places to chose from. We recommend the Cafe de Koe for good local food. The Backstage bar is good on a Tuesday for open mike night acoustic song makers. Lots of transport to chose from . Catch the 197 bus outside Schipol airport to the Leidesplein. 3 euros each. Tram is about 3 euros for an hour roving. A day long on the canal bus is 23 euros but is a pleasant way to travel, tour the town, and save your feet. Hotel is easy walking distance to the rijkksmuseum and Van Gogh (10 mins) . If you go to the Nemo science museum near the train station , the best bit is free, sit out on the roof and look across the city on a sunny day. Also try the Albert Cuyp Market east of the Van Gogh Museum. I'd use this hotel again. Thankyou to all the staff.

“Reasonably Priced Hotel in Theatre District”

The hotel is very conveniently located near the Rijksmuseum, other main museums, canals, and shops in the theatre district of Amsterdam. The rooms are small but since all we needed was a clean and comfortable bed and bathroom - this hotel fitted the bill nicely. The front stairs are deadly and steep but that is a minor inconvenience. The staff were friendly and the breakfast very nice. We would stay there again,

“great location and great sized room for amsterdam”

the hotel was easy to find, close to all the musuems and although on the main road i heard no noise, the room was suprisingly large, having previously spent time in amsterdam and heard that all hotel rooms were small in the centre it was a great size. really friendly staff, the only downside was if you struggle with steps there are a few steep steps on the way to reception

“No frills hotel”

This hotel came at a reasonable price as part of a hotel/flights deal and is very close to a lot of the touristy places...Vondelpark, museums, canals, shops, restaurants. Couldn't fault the location. It would have been nice to have better complimentary toiletries and sound proof doors as the noise of guests doors nearby was often quite annoying late at night. The staff didn't seem that bothered about customer service but they were pleasant enough. The stairs are deadly though, not for the faint hearted. As previous reviews have noted it's a 30 min bus ride from the airport for 5 Euros. All in all I'd say for the price paid, it was suitable. The location though was the best part!
