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.

Nevertheless, a delicious breakfast awaits you every morning from 7:00 a.m., with coffee, tea, fruit juice, freshly-baked bread rolls, cheese, meats, sweets and hot dishes such as sausages, bacon and scrambled egg.

“Great stay! Friendly staff! Good location! Free coffee!”

We stayed in March. Hotel rooms are quirky and lovely and clean. Good location for taking in the sites. There was one gentleman on reception who we seen a lot. He was tall with dark hair and wore a suit. He got us checked in early, offered us coffee and a good welcome. On check out we left our house keys in the room and flew all the way home! He posted our keys out to us. Thank you very much!

“A pleasant stay in a comfortable hotel”

We stayed in a room for four people for some nights. The room was comfortable, clean and large enough. The hotel is placed in a silent zone and we slept very well. The hotel is well connected to the train station (line 9 of tram) and so you can reach it in less than one hour from the Schiphol airport We appreciated the coffee machine in the hall, where you can have free coffee, cappuccino, etc. The only warning concerns the stairs: the depth of the steps is very small and you have to be careful when you go downstairs

“Away from the hustle and bustle - but still a great location ”

We stayed for four nights (two girls) in a twin/double room. Make sure if you are wanting a twin room you get the two single beds that can be pushed apart as on our arrival we were given a double bed room, and I had to ask for an actual twin single beds room. We attend on the ground floor (rm 112) with a lovely view of the park. En suite shower rm was a perfect size for us although the shower head was made of heavy plastic and didn't stay upright when showering which was a bit annoying but the rest of the en suite was very clean and had everything you needed. We are pleased that a fan was provided for the warm nights. Free tea/coffee/water machine available in the main reception/foyer area. The single beds were on the neat size side but adequate and I think if you were tall or had a bigger frame you'd struggle to get comfy - so it would be wise to book a bigger room which I'd assume would have bigger beds??? The room was cleaned daily, fresh towels replaced every day and was a nice touch to receive a chocolate each time. The location is great, the tram 14 and 9 (which go right through the centre of town to and from central station) are five minutes from the hotel and run regularly. There are bars and restaurants nearby that are a lot quieter than the centre of town with great service and good quality food. You can walk a short distance to the Zoo/Botanics/resistence museum. Oh and great ice cream shop is across the road on the corner. We had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone wishing to be near the action of the city but prefer a quieter and more peaceful relaxing location for the evening.

“Staying in the rooms.”

The rooms looked a lot bigger on website, was a nice place to stay just a little disappointing. Overall I thought that the trip, location and the hotel was very nice and will come back very soon hopefully.
