“A hotel can break it!”

As a very frequent traveler, I can assure you that a hotel can make or break a vacation. Hampshire Hotel clearly "made it" for us. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating for our many needs. Room service is 24 hours and we took advantage of that. The concierge recommended many fine restaurants and activities. Our two story junior suite has a beautiful canal view from the balcony. The murals in the living room and bathroom were amazing. Free WiFi was high quality and easy to access quickly.. Lovers canal tour leaves from the dock about 20 meters from the hotel lobby entrance. It's a great low cost way to get into the flow of things on your first day.

“Great location - reasonable price”

Updated reasonably priced hotel right on a canal with excellent outside and inside restaurants, newly refurbished bathrooms, etc. Front desk extremely friendly and helpful. Perfectly located for tourists short walking distances to "museum row," shopping center, etc. Beautiful canal right in front. We'd stay there again if we go back.

“Lovely Hotel”

The hotel is in a great location. Easy to get around near everything. It was very clean, beds are comfortable. The only issue we had was the outside noise was so loud. Our room faced a club outside on the other side of the street. It was so loud and the taxis would honk there horns no stop for about a half hour at 3 am in the morning and wake us up. That was the worst part.
