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:

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.

The iconic restaurant closes its doors on November 6 for a complete renovation. Monday 18th of December we will be happy to welcome you again with our 'Class & Classics'. For a light lunch and / or dinner, we welcome everyone in Bar Americain from 11.00 am.

Café Americain for the locals
In the fifties the Americain was already a place where Amsterdam met; soon it will be a second home for all the Amsterdamers. Mid-December, the famous restaurant re-opens as a modern brasserie that writes new history with class and classics.

High quality, accessible style and a lot of personality, that's the new Café Americain. With Peter Gast as Signature chef.

This is your chance to be part of our team and become the face of the new Café Americain! Check out the possibilities: info@cafeamericain.nl

New breakfast menu
The breakfast menu at Café Americain is a combination of the Amsterdam breakfast platter and à la carte dishes. The Amsterdam breakfast platter comprises an extensive choice of breakfast elements including bread from the Vlaamsch Broodhuys bakery, traditional Amsterdam ox sausage, Woerkom jam & marmalades and a pot of Vascobelo coffee or Dammann Frère tea. The Amsterdam breakfast platter is served as breakfast included in the room price or is offered at a flat rate. You can enlarge on the Amsterdam breakfast platter by adding à la carte dishes of your choice at a reduced rate. These dishes include the ‘class & classics’ that will be recognisable by one and all, including eggs Benedict, pancakes or scrambled eggs. Guests with a smaller breakfast appetite can select from the range of à la carte dishes and our coffee, tea or smoothie menu. Non-hotel guests are also welcome to enjoy the Amsterdam breakfast platter – Inspired by Peter Gast.

Nice Hotel with Fine room, god bed - kingsize. The staff where professional, helpful and nice! Expensive breakfast with dry bread and cold coffe. Advice: eat somewhere else. The Hotel is central - close walking to , for exemplet, floder market and its also near to trams, close walking to a bus WHO takes you directly to AirPort.

“Perfect location, hotel a bit run down”

Perfect location near Leidseplein with many train stops close by so it is easy to get to all parts of town. Hotel was build in 1880 and this shows, the windows in our room were not tight, cold air came blowing in all the time.

“Excellent hotel”

Our stay was excellent, we stayed in the mata kari room very spacious, staff were polite and friendly and we had nothing but great service. Our flight was cancelled on day of leave for two more days. The Hampton American showed no problems accommodating us for a further two nights. Would stay again. Hotel is in a great location for visiting Amsterdam and transport was easy.

“Great weekend”

Lovely hotel, equally good staff. Great location within the city. Hotel had overbooked so was disappointed to not have the room the first night however we were put up in a very nice room across the canal and were then treated to a suite on return the second night. Great service.
