A great time in the heart of Twente

Hampshire Hotel - City Hengelo is easy to reach by car and train. Ideal for a weekend away in the heart of Twente. Certainly if you really fancy a shop till you drop. In Hengelo itself there are surprisingly attractive and original shops, which are included in the special shopping walk route (highly recommended!). But there’s also perfect shopping in various cities just over the German border.

You can cycle to your heart’s content in the Twente countryside. Pump up the tyres to cycle over undulating roads, through ancient forests, along meadows, fens and streams. There are all kinds of great cycle routes in the area surrounding Hampshire Hotel - City Hengelo, and many great places to walk, too, including Twickel castle with its 4,000-hectare estate, past historic gardens and various museums. And after a long day outdoors you will certainly have earned a delicious glass of wine or beer at the bar of Star Café Diner.

Along paths and lanes!

The hotel is in a perfect location: in the heart of Hengelo, next to the theatre and close to the station. Hengelo is also the destination for a weekend of cycling and walking in the Twente countryside. Immediately outside the city you’ll find expansive forests, beautiful nature areas and pretty villages. So set off along paths and lanes!

The Klompenmuseum ’t Skopke in Enter is totally “Twents” with its hundreds of different clogs. More interested in technology? The Twents Techniekmuseum HEIM shows the history and the future of (Twentse) industry. The Historisch Museum is fascinating. It’s situated in an aristocrat’s home that’s over a hundred years old.

The Rabotheater has extremely diverse performances on its programme, both from local amateurs and from national companies. It’s also ideal for a great film evening.

What’s going to happen on the stage at Metropool is always a surprise. It’s the place to discover rising talent and local music heroes.

Shopping lovers are well-served in the centre of Hengelo. With the special shopping walk route you’ll miss nothing.

There’s nostalgia in the forest between Hengelo and Enschede, where the family amusement park De Waarbeek is situated. You’ll find many rides from the past here that are still fascinating. Nothing is nicer for the children than playing endlessly in two large monkey cages. Set those monkeys free in the Bengeltjes Speeldorp.

Cycling and walking
Smart cyclists will take in a few castles along their route; Twickel castle on Landgoed Twickel for instance, most of which is open to the public. Tuindorp ’t Lansink, an idyllic residential area from the 1920s, is also nice.

“Second stay”

Service - Reasonably well. Location - across Hengelo train station. 5mins(€2+/way) to bigger Enschede. Very tempted to stay in Enschede (intercity hotel) next time because there is simply nothing to do after returning from work. Facilities - could do with an in-house gym. Food - Same breakfast menu for the whole week. Some change would be good for the business people who usually stay for a week. Some restaurants nearby but are mostly closed on Mondays so pretty much stuck anyway.

“Good hotel”

Room and hotel is clean and the people are nice. The check in was easy. and in a timely fashion. Buy your own soap - it is cheap in the Netherlands; the hotel doesn't provide individual/ personal soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

“This place ticked all the boxes, and a few we weren't expecting!”

Arrived at 10.00pm having phoned ahead two hours earlier to book two double rooms. There's a good, affordable car park directly opposite the hotel. The receptionist was bright and helpful and the rooms exceeded our expectations: Large, clean, en suite with both a bath and a shower, welcome pack waiting on the bed with towel dressing gown and slip-on slippers. The mattresses were fantastic: so much so that now my wife wants to change ours at home! Breakfast, booked on arrival was reasonably priced. So reasonable, that I was expecting a "continental" breakfast of coffee and croissants. In fact, there was a wide selection of cereals, fruit, bacon and scrambled egg, the BEST coffee I've tasted for weeks, sliced bread, rolls, croissants, etc etc. All in all a GREAT breakfast. We had a brief opportunity to explore the town late in the evening and it seems to be a bright, clean, interesting blend of old and new, with a square near the hotel where tables and chairs from several establishments had been moved outside to make a convivial setting. At 10.30pm (admittedly on a warm summer's evening) the place was full of lively chatter and laughter. We stopped in Hengelo as a convenient staging-post. We're aiming to return to the town and the hotel as a destination!
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Hengelo
Dear guest, Thank you for this great review. I'm very pleased to read you had such a great time with us. You stayed in a Superior room, so you know which room to book when you return to Hengelo :-) I will share you compliments and look forward to welcome you again sometimes soon! With kind regards, Marieke Dooren

“Very satisfactory stay”

You can't fault the helpfulness of the staff. I had problems accessing the complimentary guest wifi, and the receptionist went out of her way to help - successfully. The room - as before - was very comfortable. As we have a son studying in Enschede, we will probably be back.

“Well run, well placed hotel”

This hotel has everything you need at a reasonable price. Close to the train station, town center, and parking lot, so easy access for everyone. Clean, comfortable rooms, with coffee maker. Good food for breakfast or other meals, and nice seating area. Easy to use and good wifi. Good temperature control, so not too hot or cold at any time of year. You can iron your clothes on each floor, and there are bikes to borrow.
