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.

Breakfast, lounging and dining

There’s no restaurant at Hampshire Hotel - Lancaster Amsterdam. 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.

The Lancaster Lounge

“Helpful staff; noisy yet unvibrant location”

I stayed here with my girlfriend for four nights in October of 2017. The rooms are compact and without air-con but certainly cosy and comfortable too. If you need to cool down there are plug-in fans in the room. The staff are accommodating and were happy to facilitate us changing rooms after our first night - if you are staying in a room at the front of the hotel and need to sleep with your window open you will find noise an issue. We did and ear-plugs are a must. Neither of the rooms we stayed in had a double bed. You’ll sleep on two singles pushed together. The hotel is a little way from the centre of town and we relied on trams to get there (although I enjoyed the tram experience throughout the trip). There wasn't much of a buzz to the surrounding area and the noise was caused by trams, construction work and the nearby zoo. My overall impression of the place was that the staff will do anything to help but there are a a few flaws in the place that mean I would look elsewhere next time.

“Perfect spot for a short stop”

We arrived at the Artis tram stop to see a lot of construction work on the hotel, and thought ugh great! ..Shouldn't have worries though, we never heard a thing! On check in, very fast, smooth process, we were given stroopwaffle to go with tea, nice touch! The room was small, the bathroom small, but perfectly laid out, and comfortable for a four day trip, and we were never really in the room anyway, but to sleep. It was clean, room cleaned and towels changed each day, the bed was so so comfortable, pillows good too..staff were super nice and helpful. The hotel is in a great location, two or three stops from Rembrandt Square, and less than a minute to the stop. not sure if it is wheelchair accessible, as there are steps to the front door of the hotel. Gave it less one star as the carpets in the room were not very clean, and it was on the small side. I really cannot complain though, it was the perfect stay.

“Not what we expected ”

The hotel looks nothing like the picture The rooms are very small, the bed was not comfy, it was two small beds put together as one and they kept separating The street was noisy, we had to buy earplugs There is no air conditioner so they give you a fan The only pro was the staff who were super friendly and the location which was close to the central only 15-20 minutes walk or a few stations by tram
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Lancaster Amsterdam
Dear Sir, Madam, thank you for writing your review and for giving us your comments. I am sorry that the information we have provided on the website of your booking was not clear enough. We advertise our rooms as small rooms and we do not have any airconditioning in the hotel. We have a limited number of double rooms, most of them are twin bedded rooms. If we had known that you were having problems with your beds or did not like the twin beds, we would have gladly solved this during your stay. I do hope that despite this, you have had an enjoyable trip. Kind regards, Hans
