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.

“Pleasant stay”

The beds were comfy The room was spacious enough(its Amsterdam aslong as the room is clean thats all that matters you should be out exploring) the hotel is a five minute walk to a nice little cafe that does a lovely breakfast for 7 euro. A further three minute walk and you are at the tram stop. Trams 9 and 14 will take you to and from The hotel. I did walk to the centre twice and the walk was enjoyable. Across the road is artis zoo, well worth a visit! I found the staff to be helpful and welcoming answering any queries we had about getting around and where we shoukd visit on a shorr trip. Overall i would stay here again as it is reasonably prices and conveniently located!

“The best thing was the receptionist (Manuel).”

My experience at the Hampshire Lancaster Hotel was good. My room was renovated, clean and there were no noises. As for the location, despite not being in the center it has very good tram connections and you only need 10-15 minutes to get to the center. The best thing of all was the deal with a Spanish receptionist called Manuel. I went to Amsterdam for work and he helped me to plan the routes on the map, he told me the trams I had to take, he advised me good restaurants and even he spoke Dutch with one of my clients because he didn´t speak English. If I go back to Amsterdam I will choose the hotel for the receptionist, because the help that he gave me it is very difficult to find. But you can find other similar hotels for this price.

“Came at the wrong time...”

My aim was to find a decent hotel, in November, on a bit of a budget. Upon looking at the hotel online, all seemed great. However, on arrival, things were very different. The first problem we had was even finding the place.. I suspected our taxi driver to have taken a wrong turn when he pulled up outside a building covered in scaffolding. Luckily we could check in before the allocated time, and it was very clear from the start that the hotel was going through some major work. The room was spacious, and we were fortunate enough to have a double bed each (well, twin beds each) and were indeed incredibly comfy. Unfortunately, there were a number of issues with the room - bathroom door was not aligned, and therefor, wouldn't shut properly. Dust covered the shelves on the inside of the wardrobe, and we had been placed in probably the worst part of the hotel for construction work to start at 7am - not something you want on a holiday. We decided not to take the breakfast option, but would recommend as the price is fair , 15€ per day (we spent about the same on breakfast out) All in all, a nice hotel, but not somewhere id stay again until work had been finished.

Dear Sir, Madam, thank you for your writing your review and for your comments. At the moment the hotel is painted from the outside and a new lobby/check in area is created. I am sorry that this caused some inconvenience but I do hope that we may welcome you again in our brand new hotel. Kind regards, Hans
