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,-.

“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.

“Delightful Hotel in ideal location”

I stayed here for two nights just before Christmas. A nice friendly hotel close to Vondel park and the museum quarter. My single room was an ideal size for a two night stay. There is a coffee/chocolate machine that is free to use. I was asked to pay a 50 Euro deposit (I decided to pay in cash) when I checked in and needed to remind the receptionist of this when I checked out.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Theatre District Amsterdam
Dear Guest, I apologise for the fact you needed to remind the receptionist yourself about your cash deposit upon checkout. Deposits are registered on the room account of our guests. A receipt is provided to our guests for their convenience and administration. I have no clarification why you had to ask for your deposit to be returned, but assume this was unintentionally overseen in this case. Again my apologies. With kindest regards, Stefaan, Hotel Manager

“Good location!”

Brilliant location, 2 minutes from Dam square. Easily accessible from the airport, the 197 bus costs only 5euros each way and took about half an hour. Check in was relatively painless, however you have to put down a 50euro deposit which, if using a debit card, apparently takes a month to be credited back into your account?? Seems strange. Wifi was good, the room was small but to be expected in Amsterdam. We faced the front which is on a busy main road, this didn't bother us too much though as heavy sleepers. (and drunk) Didn't use any hotel facilities other than the room, however it was perfect for what we wanted, cheap and centrally located.

Dear Sidda, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. The cash deposit serves as a guarantee for any incidental costs that may occur during your stay. Deposits provide with a debit card will be returned in cash (minus costs) on the day of departure. Deposits provided by credit card are released immediately when payment is done with the same card upon departure. Otherwise this `authorised amount` on the credit card will be released depending at a later date, depending on the bank it has been issued by, With kind regards, Stefaan, Hotel Manager

“"Trainee" and her secret charges to my credit card! Beware!”

Start with the good - The two positives from this hotel are location and value for money. Very close to the centre for only around £90 a night during the new year period. It was basic and clean, you get what you pay for. Free wifi and also luggage storage facilities. And the bad - Staff were not very welcoming with a nice greeting at all. We checked in and during check in they asked for a credit card to used to guarantee the room for 50€ which was fine, no charge was to be made what so ever, only just a security deposit incase anything was damaged etc. The following morning I checked my bank to see that 2 payments totalling up to £366 had been made against my card from the hotel. None of the amounts matched up to the cost of the stay OR even the so called 50€ guarantee. I went downstairs to get a manager to which she denied all my claims saying no charge was ever made and she was checking my room records and says no we have not charged you at all. I had my iPad showing her clear as day showing the 2 charges. Still she was adamant none were made. Phoned my bank and they confirmed charges were also made. After a second visit to management we argued again, still no luck, still kept telling me they never charged me. Very frustrating indeed as they have basically stolen £400 and are denying it. Talk about stuck between a rock and a hard place! My girlfriend and her mate went down to try their luck as I was phoning the bank yet again to ask for there help. 3rd time lucky the manager finally miraculously revealed that the 'trainee' accidentally charged me and made no record of it in the system whatsoever. I then had to fight the language barrier and get management to fax my bank and explain the situation with the relevant info and give permission to cancel the charges made. Truth or not from the hotel, seemed shady. So please beware!
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Theatre District Amsterdam
Dear Darell, I apologise for the incident that you describe and for the way we addressed this. The trainee that assisted you upon check-in mistakenly took your debit card for a credit card and authorised this card for your total stay, as payment should be done at the hotel directly. An authorisation on a debit card will always appear as an actual charge on your account, but will automatically be released with in 30 days from the date the authorisation was made. After you checked back with the Supervisor this should have immediately been recognised and corrected. This has been discussed internally, to prevent this from happening again. Altough I understand your feelings I conclude that no false intend was at hand. Again, our apologies for not explaining this better when you asked for this. With kindest regards, Stefaan, Hotel Manager

“Excellent value for money, great location”

We stayed in this hotel for two nights right after Christmas. We had a fourth floor room, which was quiet, clean and comfortable. Great location, just a few steps from canal, restaurants, shopping, outdoor skating rink, museums...really all you need for a lovely holiday in Amsterdam! Breakfast was a pleasant experience: I was expecting it to not be good after reading reviews, however it was plentiful, with choices of cereals, cold meats, cheese, eggs, toast, croissants, ... Hot tea and coffee available all day and night, free of charge. Only drawbacks: uncomfortable pillows and room slightly chilly, but it was-4 outside! Would definitely return!!
