Many great hotspots in the area

There’s not much chance that you’d get bored in this part of Amsterdam: there are simply too many great museums and other hotspots around Hampshire Hotel – Lancaster Amsterdam. You can purchase entrance tickets for various museums in the hotel, which will save you standing in a queue. Tips for great things in the area:

The Scheepvaartmuseum has recently been completely restored. Visit this beautiful building, the East India Company ship and interactive exhibitions about five hundred year’s of maritime history. Changing exhibitions are shown in Hermitage on the Amstel from the sizeable collection of the museum with the same name in Saint Petersburg.  Theater Het Koninklijke Theater Carré is the most coveted stage for artistes. That’s because of the hall itself, which has an unbelievable atmosphere, but also because of the list of legends who have once performed here. If you have the opportunity, watching a show here is highly-recommended.

You only need to cross the road and you’re in Artis Royal Zoo. Artis Royal Zoo is open every Saturday until sunset in June, July and August. There are lots of activities and live music on these summer evenings. In Joods Historisch Museum, the children can visit the Hollander family. They can learn Hebrew and bake a kosher Challah bread. Magic butterflies fly around in Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. Tropenmuseum is expert in getting the children interested in the culture of other nations. Check the programme for special activities.

Oosterpark is a wonderful place to enjoy relaxing, jogging, football or a picnic. Or to visit a festival in the summer, such as Amsterdam Roots Festival or Appelsap.

There’s been a hectic trade in old books, second-hand clothes and bric-a-brac on Waterlooplein for more than a hundred years. Another traditional Amsterdam market is the multi-cultural Dappermarkt in Dapperstraat. Enjoy a Hollandse Nieuwe herring or a delicious kebab.

“Great Location”

We based ourselves here for a 4 day trip to Amsterdam and walked the entire city from here. It was a lovely quiet green area but a 15-20 minute walk into the centre of the city and a 30 min walk to the museum district. It was nice to return to a quiet area after the hustle and bustle all day. Breakfast was included in our booking and was a buffet style and all lovely - having seen the price however if it wasn't included I would not have paid the amount requested for it. There is no hotel bar, the foyer has vending machines with water, snacks, soft drinks and beer and they offer free tea & coffee in the foyer. It was rare that there was a staff member there when we came and left - the desk seems to be mainly unmanned but we didn't need any assistance so it didn't bother us. Staff at breakfast were really friendly and lovely. The room is fine - toilet/shower is tiny but functional. Everything was clean and tidy. Our check in was odd in that I had to produce all sorts of documentation - I was asked on check in if breakfast was included and I said I didn't know so the receptionist said he'd take it off my booking then. When we settled in the room and checked the booking and found it was included we called to reception on our way out to tell them this and they said they would put it back on our booking. This seemed strange to me as surely they should have all the details of the booking themselves. Similarly upon checking out we went through the same rigmarole of having to show e-mails to confirm the breakfast was included as they wanted to charge us again. It seemed booking/reception were a little disorganised but apart from that we had no interaction with staff or really saw anyone. If you're planning on being out and about a lot this is a fine place to stay.

Dear Cliona, thank you for writing your review. It is good to read that you have enjoyed your stay with us apart from the small problem you experienced with the breakfast. In the summer we sometimes work with receptionists from other hotels who do not always have the experience with our computersystem. I am glad that it was solved for you and hope that we may welcome you once more. Thank you for staying with us. Kind regards, Hans

“Great hotel”

Stayed here in a 4 bed room with my friends last May. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, room was small but beds were comfy and the shower worked perfectly so it had everything we needed. We stayed for a week and had the best experience. We never need to use public transport as everything was in walking distance.

“One night stay in Amsterdam”

The Hotel was clean and conformable and was within walking distance of the city centre easily or you could catch the transit to any part of the city. The room was not a bad size for a hotel in Europe also free to use electronic safe, there was no air conditioning but there was a fan in the room which was fine. For the price and the service which was great would stay her again

“Welcoming hotel”

We have just returned from a weekend break at the Hampshire hotel. Very friendly welcoming staff, clean tidy en-suite room on the ground floor, we had 2 rooms as there were 4 of us, all 4 of us agreed this was a very nice hotel, just a little way of of main areas, easy access using no 9 tram, just along the road. Free wifi, tea making facilities in the room plus a free coffee machine in reception with great selection of hot drinks. Tv in room had 3 English channels so we didn't miss out on the tennis or euro football. Comfy beds, free to use electronic safe, all in all everything you need for a relaxing break. We would not hesitate to recommend the Hampshire hotel to anyone.
