“Perfect......Perfect........Perfect”

The helpfulness and friendliness of all the hotel staff shone through. In particular Mandy, who was on reception was absolutely brilliant, at dealing with a problem that I had, when I first checked in. The building itself is amazing as was my room - 607 I had a great view of the canal and of Amsterdam life going by. The location is perfect for anyone visiting Amsterdam, close to museums, flower market, shops, restaurants, Vondel park and the trams, that will get you just about anywhere in the city. My whole experience staying here was perfect for the 2 nights I stayed. I will certainly like to return and stay there again in the future.

“Holland Holiday”

My husband and I stayed recently for 3 nights at The Hampshire Hotel-Amsterdam American. After quite a hectic tour of Britain it was nice to relax in one place and this hotel was more than expected and we very happy that we had made this choice. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and showed us both the room that had been booked and canal view room. While there was nothing wrong with the first room which was modern and spacious and had a large balcony, it didn't really offer much view which was great to take in after being out all day and watch the canal boats go by. Would be fine if you're out all day and don't mind some quiet in the evening. We opted to upgrade to a canal view room for quite a reasonable amount. The room was a great size as we were also given an upgrade which we really appreciated. The only small negative was that there was some construction going on at the left of the canal which did take away from the nice view to a small extent, but all in all we were very happy with everything and it a lovely homely feel with a super comfy bed, nice furnishings and room to move. Definitely also have a drink or two at the Café Americain - a great spot to watch the world go by and quieter than the cafes on the Liedseplein for a change. Great location and close to everything. Would definitely stay here again.

“Great location and friendly staff.”

I have stayed here several times. I like the location and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms have always been clean and the hotel is in an older historic building. The breakfast is very good and a convenient way to start the morning.

“Great hotel, great location.”

Beautiful view of the canal when you step out the front door of this hotel. Wonderful old Art Deco building surrounded by many historic buildings in the heart of Amsterdam. The dining room is visually stunning.
