Shopping, dining, art, culture and relaxation

The Hampshire Hotel - Amsterdam American is located in the heart of Amsterdam. All you have to do is step outside and you are in the middle of Leidseplein. The perfect starting point for some serious shopping, lunch and dinner, or for art, culture and relaxation:

Museums
Find inspiration in the Van Gogh Museum. This is the only place in the world where there are so many paintings by Vincent van Gogh on display together. The regular collection comprises over 200 paintings, 500 drawings and over 750 letters. The Stedelijk Museum is the MoMA of Amsterdam. Prime pieces are The Beanery by Edward Kienholz and works by Kazimir Malevitsj, Matisse, Het Bauhaus and De Stijl. Besides Rembrandt's Nightwatch, the Rijksmuseum also has masterpieces by Johannes Vermeer and Frans Hals.

Theatre
See a show at the DeLaMar Theatre, the Stadsschouwburg or Theater Bellevue. During the summer from June to September, you can see free shows - cabaret, music and dance - in the Vondelpark Openluchttheater.

Pop podiums
For pop concerts, you can visit the famous pop temples Paradiso and De Melkweg.

On the water
See the city of Amsterdam from a totally different angle and take a tour boat or water taxi.

Public transport
The Location offers an easy access to the public transportation. The airport bus 197 stops right at the doorstep of the hotel, which makes it easy to make your way from Schiphol for about €5,-. 

 

The famous Café and Bar Americain

Café Americain
A phenomenon in Amsterdam and far beyond. Café Americain is a well known meeting place for writers, artists, performers and locals. In the beautiful art deco interior, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fine weather, the spacious terrace is a beautifully sheltered spot.
Every day you can enjoy Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, scones, bonbons, biscuits and a pot of special tea. Every  first Sunday, there is a Jazz Brunch with live music, good food and a relaxed lazy Sunday feel.

Bar Americain
No hotel bar in Amsterdam has welcomed such an eclectic mix of international stars as Bar Americain. Many famous guests have ordered a Strawberry Field or Citrus Kick here. Because cocktails are a house speciality. Not surprisingly, the bar is a hot spot for cocktail loving Amsterdam. Shaken or stirred, it's your call.

“A dream hotel!”

This hotel has a great location, fantastic food in the hotel (breakfast was amazing!), and a super staff. Overlooking a canal, you just cant go wrong. When I return, this will be my first choice. It was a dream stay.

“Quiet Comfortable Rooms”

Our first time in Amsterdam, so we had a bit of trouble finding this place after taking bus 197 in from Schipol. We found another Hampshire Hotel, who gave us directions. They assumed we were in a car, so the directions made us circle the block. Sidewalks and streets around this hotel were under construction, so access pulling luggage was a bit challenging, but we soon got used to it. Well situated, close to canal cruises (out front door) restaurants, shopping and transit. We were disappointed our room only had a view of an inner courtyard, until we realized this meant the room would be quiet. It was and with the comfortable bed, sleeps were good. Maid service was a bit slow on the first day, due to a large number of checkouts, but improved on the next two nights. Desk staff were friendly and accommodating throughout our stay. We would stay here again.
