From Vondelpark to Leidseplein

The range of art and culture on offer in the immediate vicinity of Hampshire Hotel - Theatre District Amsterdam is tremendous. Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum are all within walking distance. To help you relax, you can take a nice walk through Vondelpark or take in an outdoor café on Leidseplein. Tips for other great things in the area:

As well as the large, internationally-renowned museums, the area houses many interesting smaller museums. A good example is Museum Van Loon, located in a 17th Century building on Keizersgracht. This is home to the art collection from the Willem van Loon family, one of the founders of the East India Company. Tassenmuseum Hendrikje is in a monumental building on Herengracht, dating from 1664. As the largest bag museum in the world, it brings 500 years of bag history to life. The Bijbels Museum on Herengracht is one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands. The enormous collection comprises not only biblical but also Jewish and Egyptian religious objects. In 1805, Mrs Willet-Holthuysen left her 17th Century canal house to the city of Amsterdam, including furniture and art collection. The house is now a museum: Museum Willet-Holthuysen.

Foam Fotografiemuseum on Keizersgracht has large exhibitions featuring the work of famous photographers, but also smaller expositions by young talented professionals and amateurs.

Various theatres are within walking distance of the hotel. DeLaMar Theater has international performances, theatre, cabaret, musicals and family theatre on the programme. Stadschouwburg on Leidseplein offers evening theatre performances including those by Toneelgroep Amsterdam.

Jeugdtheater De Krakeling has beautiful performances for children of various ages throughout the year. Anne Frank Huis is suitable for children from 10 years. For climbing, gliding, football and running, children up to 13 can enjoy the indoor play park, TunFun.

The park in Amsterdam is of course Vondelpark, where you can enjoy a picnic on the grass together with all the locals. There are great, free performances in Vondelpark Openluchttheater in the summer.

The Location offers an easy access to the public transportation. The airport bus 397 stops right at the doorstep of the hotel, which makes it easy to make your way from Schiphol for about €5,-.

“Perfect location”

Perfect location to see Amsterdam. Near to bus and tram stops. 2 minutes walk from Leidseplein. You can reach the hotel from the airport by bus No. 397, it will take about 25 minutes. There are free coffee and tea facilities in the hotel restaurant. Continental breakfast is good enough. Rooms are small but clean. Hotel provides with different discount vouchers for tours and excursions. You can go for an hour canal boat trip that starts just the opposite side of the hotel. We got the discount voucher for the trip at the hotel.

“Looks a lot nicer on the Internet!”

I booked this hotel for a 2 night stay, it looked really really impressive on the Internet. The staff were nice and friendly and were very helpful. The rooms weren't as nice as they looked on the internet - not that they were bad at all, but the photos certainly made them look a lot nicer than they were. The room was a bit tight - it was narrow and long rather than spacious. Staff were helpful in storing our luggage for us on our last day so we could make the most of our final few hours in Amsterdam.

“Average Stay”

Stayed here for around 4 nights during my visit here and I would rate it below average for the price we paid. The staff were friendly and attentive all times.We were given the basement room which we means we have to carry all our luggage’s in those narrow steps up and down literally. The rooms were clean but pretty small. I am aware that most of the rooms in Europe are small when compared but this was way small. The bed was small and I was afraid of falling off everytime. The shower arrangement was at the weirdest setup I have ever seen which makes you feel that the water might overflow anytime. The only pro’s were the location near the main hub and unlimited Hot coffee and tea round the clock. Undoubtedly, I will never return to this property.

Dear guest, Thank you for your visit and review posting. Our hotel is made up of 3 former town houses and for 2 rooms, including the room you received, a few steps are required I'm afraid. I'm sorry to hear our hotel was not to your liking, but I am a happy to hear our staff was. Kind regards, Jennifer Leidelmeijer
