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.

“Clean, comfortable, small room, with marginally functioning toilet fixtures”

I chose this hotel because it was convenient for a conference I was attending and had gotten good reviews. I can confirm that the place is clean and comfortable, and the breakfast is also good. And the price is reasonable. But it's a little tired-looking. And when I first flushed the toilet, the plate that you press (and that covers the plumbing behind the wall) FLEW off. I put it back on and just held it in place after that, but there's no way that the cleaning crew is not aware of this problem. So, do they not tell management when there's a problem (not good) or does management ignore it (also not good)? A similar problem exists with the sink stopper in this room. It's just broken - you can't unstop it. The cleaning crew has to know about this. The sink itself is also tiny - actually hard to wash your face or brush your teeth without getting water everywhere. I might stay here again, but only if I was here again for a conference in the same place.

“Small Rooms but Amazingly Helpful Staff”

I've now stayed here twice while in Amsterdam for meetings. The rooms are small and the location is a tad off the beaten path, but the breakfast is good and the staff are amazingly helpful. During my last visit, the airline lost my luggage and then returned it 2 days later with a side ripped off. Most stores close on a Monday at 6pm and I didn't get out of meeting until 6:10pm. The woman working at the desk found a nearby place that was open until 6:30pm -- I ran there and found some luggage and was able to depart the next day without any drama. They have gone above and beyond more than once and I really appreciate that.

“Nice rooms, huge breakfast, good location”

Spent one night there. Breakfast buffet huge. Room was tiny (couldn't even open my bag) but very well equipped as well as very clean. Some rooms are a little clairaudient. Tram (Artis station) is just a 3 minutes walk away.

“Very good place to stay in Amsterdam”

The hotel is located close to City centre near tram stop Artis. Very convenient to go to city centre of Amsterdam. Room was spacious and clean! Bathroom was amazing! Front desk staff seemed bored and don't have much experience with foreigners (??). The luggage storage wasn't locked (!!) so we weren't very happy with that. Overall it was a very good stay, the location and room was perfect and very quiet as well! Perfect choice of you stay in amsterdam!

Dear Shai, thank you for writing your review. It is interesting to read that we are part of a secret package deal since we are not aware of this. Sorry that our location did not please you, this is something we can not change. I am pleased to read that you think we are a good hotel. Kind regards, Hans
