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.

“waht a lovely suprise”

Didn't know what to expect as paid about 133 pounds for 3 nights but it was really good stay. We arrived about 830 at the airport and as a fellow trip advisor had stated you can get the 197 bus from the airport straight to the hotel . We arrived there and I asked for a room on the first floor so that it was not too noisy the receptionist was very helpful as they all were and gave advise about trams and flights the bus . We could walk to a lot of bars and sights . The hotel was very clean and free tea and coffee on tap day and night.

“A Bit Out of the Way”

A great deal and great and friendly staff! Everyone was very helpful. Location was convenient to find when we first got into the city (we took an overnight coach from London) and seeing as we were exhausted that was a huge relief. It was located on the Nassaukade, which was the largest street just outside of the touristy center of Amsterdam. The good news is that public transport goes right to it, so getting there from the bus station, like we did, was a breeze. However, because it was JUST outside of all the attractions, navigating on most of the maps we got of the sites involved a lot of "and our hotel is somewhere over here" with us pointing to empty air the just off of the furthest, southwest corner of our map. However, the street is large and the city itself is grid-like and easily navigable so it's hard to get too lost. The room was very clean and the hotel offered converters for UK outlets as well as helped us to plan our trip to the airport (there is a shuttle but it is not complementary. If traveling as more than one it is cheaper and much faster to just take a cab.) The wifi policy tries to scare you but ultimately it is impossible for them to police it. When you initially log on it says you can use the free wifi on only one device, but they do not make you enter personal information like your name or room number so they have no way to know when you log you connect your laptop, your partner connects THEIR laptop and then you both connect your smartphones to upload pictures. Don't be worried about it, though the thought behind their trying to police wifi use is a bit insulting and annoying. Also, my partner traveling from England was surprised that there was no kettle in the room. Similarly, the breakfast that they serve from 7:30 to 10:30 is not complementary (it costs about 15 Euros but is served buffet style.) There is hot water and a coffee machine in the lobby but, as an American, I can tell you that the coffee is not worth the trip from upstairs. But apart from all the optional costs you can pack on, this hotel was a bit off the beaten path. It is a few blocks from the truly stunning Vondelpark and the Rijkmuseum. Both locations are worth a stop but the quiet and upper crust neighborhood that they were located in was not the experience we were looking for. The area was full of high end shops and places to eat around the area were a bit bourgeoise for my liking. The walk toward the central part of Amsterdam, the Red Light District and Old Amsterdam was anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes depending on your tendency to mosey (mine is quite high, my partner's was not) which doesn't seem like much but if the appeal of the city is the nightlife that could be two hours a day of commuting on foot (assuming you come back to the room after daytime activities to rest and get ready to go out for the nighttime.) The hotel was perfectly adequate. It is a great value but with that comes the hotel trying to make money on things that most places offer for free such as wifi, breakfast and an airport shuttle. It's easy to go around those expenses but just know that if it isn't in your room, you can be expected to pay for it. That isn't the worst crime that a hotel can commit but it is annoying. My only regret was that I didn't get a hotel closer to the city center. However, a hotel on Amstel may be convenient but the cost is not for those on a budget. Vondelpark is exquisite and I wished I had packed running shoes since that would have been a lovely way to start the day. But that is about the only budget friendly attraction in the area. For great cheap food with great people watching, you'll want to migrate central. For entertainment you'll want to migrate central. Everything you plan to do, plan to attach 10 to 15 minutes, purely for commute. A great hotel for patrons who are a bit older or have kids since there are fewer obnoxious drunk and high kids stumbling about. Also a great place for people who have been to Amsterdam before and are looking for a quieter, less touristy experience. However, my partner and I WERE kids who are unopposed to being surrounded by our obnoxious peers and were planning on doing a lot of the more classic, tourist attractions on our first trip to the city. If budget overrides convenience, I recommending buying a pass for the public street car. It picks up within a two minute walk of the hotel and takes you all the way to the northernmost part of Amsterdam, where the Red Light district, Old Amsterdam and other major attractions are.

“No complaints”

The hotel is basic and was clean, the rooms may have been small but were adequate, bed was comfy enough but pillows could have been bit nicer, was nice to have free tea and coffee, the room was cold as the heating was not on which is not nice when getting out of shower. The man behind reception was bit moody when we checked in and there is a 50euro deposit to be made by either cash or credit card, we did not have breakfast here so can not comment (great sports bar 5min walk which does a great big fry up) wifi was bit sow but it's free so can't complain overall good hotel in great location would stay again

“Basic but did the job!”

The hotel is situated South of the city centre but we walked everywhere and it never seemed to take long at all, even with stops along the way. A quiet area too but only 2 mins across the river to Leidesplein where there are bars, coffee shops and restaurants. The room was basic, had a small bathroom and was slightly dated but no real complaints to make. We paid extra for breakfast but it probably wasn't worth it as there was only bread, cheese, ham, beans and cereal to choose from which wasn't overly fresh. Overall, the hotel was ideal for our budget city break and being slightly "out of town" gave us the opportunity to explore whilst walking into the centre.

“Friendly staff, clean room, good value for money.”

The staff was nice and welcoming. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The only problem was that we booked a double room, expecting a big double bed, and got a room with 2 single beds put together, which is really not comfortable for a couple. It was supposed to be a romantic city trip and it was really hard to cuddle in these beds. But this is just a detail. Appart from that, breakfast was basic but ok, location was really good, 10 min walking from city center and 5 min by tram. It was very secure too. The all day free coffee and tea was really appreciated too. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
