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.

“Average 3-star hotel”

The location of the hotel is great, right at the museum quarter, at a 5 to 10 minute walk from Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and Stedeleijk museum, 15 minute walk to the Conciergebouw. Really good connectionvia trams and buses to the airport and the centre (Centraal station, Red light district, etc..), and at a 5-minute walk from Leidseplein square which is filled with restaurants and atmosphere by night. On the other hand, the rooms are very basic, thin-walled so you can hear all the noises from the adjacent rooms and the corridor. Breakfast is scarce and below average quality, so if you reserve in this hotel I'd rather not pay the fee and have breakfast instead in one of the many cafés around the hotel. One very positive thing was the free coffee all day they offer the guests, you can serve yourself with the coffee machine next to the bar.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As we are always striving to improve ourselves, remarks and experiences from our guests are vital for this proces. Our hotel offers, aside from the so called "basic-room", also Superior Rooms, which are larger in size and may give more comfort. In the morning we serve a Continental Breakfast with balanced value for money. I regret the fact that we have not been able to meet your rquirements. Kind Regards, Stefaan, Hotel Manager

“Awful hotel”

We are currently at this hotel but trying desperately to get another hotel or flight home. The hotel is small and very dated, the mattress or pillows have no protectors and are very old with several 'stains' on them. The staff couldn't care less if you have any problems or queries. We are in room 120 with a lift next to us, it's been constantly in use for the last 8 hours... Therefore none of us having any sleep. Really can't stand to be here any longer. Awful hotel with terrible staff and dirty rooms.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Theatre District Amsterdam
Dear resprected guests, Thank you for giving us feedback with regards to your visit. We are aware of your feelings towards your trip to Amsterdam. You were dropped off by taxi at the wrong hotel to beginn with, and felt the taxi fair was out off proportion. In fact you informed our reception staff that "everything was too expensive". After upgrading you to one of our Superior Rooms for free, we could not remove you to another room later in the evening. We always do our utmost to attend tou our guests needs and requirements, but feel there wasn't anything else we could have done to change your opinion. With Kindest Regards,

“A nice place to stay.”

A very nice hotel with a very friendly staff and a good location. Easy to get from the airport or the central station. Museums and other fun stuff very near. Rooms smallish but nice and clean. Breakfast very basic but good. Free coffee day and night. Really liked it. Will come again.

“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
