With tropical fish in the monumental Aquarium, giraffes, elephants and other small, large, loveable and exciting animals.

Many great hotspots in the area

There’s not much chance that you’d get bored in this part of Amsterdam: there are simply too many great museums and other hotspots around Hampshire Hotel – Lancaster Amsterdam. You can purchase entrance tickets for various museums in the hotel, which will save you standing in a queue. Tips for great things in the area:

The Scheepvaartmuseum has recently been completely restored. Visit this beautiful building, the East India Company ship and interactive exhibitions about five hundred year’s of maritime history. Changing exhibitions are shown in Hermitage on the Amstel from the sizeable collection of the museum with the same name in Saint Petersburg.  Theater Het Koninklijke Theater Carré is the most coveted stage for artistes. That’s because of the hall itself, which has an unbelievable atmosphere, but also because of the list of legends who have once performed here. If you have the opportunity, watching a show here is highly-recommended.

You only need to cross the road and you’re in Artis Royal Zoo. Artis Royal Zoo is open every Saturday until sunset in June, July and August. There are lots of activities and live music on these summer evenings. In Joods Historisch Museum, the children can visit the Hollander family. They can learn Hebrew and bake a kosher Challah bread. Magic butterflies fly around in Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. Tropenmuseum is expert in getting the children interested in the culture of other nations. Check the programme for special activities.

Oosterpark is a wonderful place to enjoy relaxing, jogging, football or a picnic. Or to visit a festival in the summer, such as Amsterdam Roots Festival or Appelsap.

There’s been a hectic trade in old books, second-hand clothes and bric-a-brac on Waterlooplein for more than a hundred years. Another traditional Amsterdam market is the multi-cultural Dappermarkt in Dapperstraat. Enjoy a Hollandse Nieuwe herring or a delicious kebab.

“Good hotel opposite Artis - Amsterdam Zoo”

This hotel is about 10 minutes away from the city centre. Take tram 9 from Central Station direction Diemen-Sniep. The hotel offers a decent service, friendly staff, clean rooms and a good bed. The breakfast was good as well. Good Dutch coffee.

“Great hotel in pleasant area – highly recommended”

I booked a one-night stay for a last-minute weekend trip to Amsterdam with a friend and found the rates very reasonable. The hotel was nice and comfortable; my room was spacious and inviting. The area was great – it’s not too far from the center and the main tourist attractions (and it’s a 20-25 minute walk from the central train station), but it’s far enough that it’s not too noisy or crowded. The neighborhood is charming and has some great cafes and lovely parks. I’d definitely stay here again.

“Good place to stay in Amsterdam”

Close to several important attractions and oh so close to tram so easy to get around Amsterdam. Would have been a real plus if breakfast had been included - only hotel we stayed in on our trip that did not offer such. Room was clean, bed comfortable, staff pleasant.

“Very Friendly”

A great hotel near Amsterdam centre. Staff is friendly and rooms are clean. They are available for every question or trouble. You can also enjoy some muffins or dinuts at the reception. It's at 20 minutes by feet from Amsterdam centre

“Great hotel”

Me and my husband have just returned from spending 5 nights at this hotel. The hotel was actually better than I had imagined!. It's easy to find with the tram stop 30 seconds from the front door (tram 9 takes you to central station) the staff were friendly and welcoming on reception although I must say they were a bit short on information on check in.. a bit more info about the hotel would have been better I.e info on breakfast etc. The room was a good size.. not too small unlike some of the other reviews I have read on here although the bathroom was very compact. However this did not effect us at all. The one bad thing I'd like to mention is although the room was clean.. a better job could have been done.. we came across a dirty sock that certainly did not belong to any of us! And also or room was not stocked with toilet roll/tissue paper.. if this had been done I would have given 5 stars. But overall a great hotel.. we would return.
