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.

Public transport
The Location offers an easy access to the public transportation. The airport bus 197 stops right at the doorstep of the hotel, which makes it easy to make your way from Schiphol for about €5,-.

“A very pleasant stay”

I was really surprised by how nice this hotel was considering it was so cheap! Our room on the ground floor was a decent size and had a good bathroom. A little rough around the edges but overall great! There is a free coffee machine by reception, that was great and made up for the fact that there were no facilities for coffee in the room. The location was good, quite a long walk from the train station, about 45 minutes, but it was close to the centre. The bed was very comfortable and I slept really well. Staff were all nice. The room key was a little temperamental and had to be re-activated a few times which was quite annoying. I would consider staying a little closer to the train station in future as we only had a short stay in Amsterdam, but would stay here again if it was a longer break.

“Lovely wee hotel”

I was actually really worried about coming here as there were so many negative reviews. However we had a brilliant time. The hotel is well positioned making everything within easy walking distance. The beds are clean and comfy and the rooms are a reasonable size! You pay city tax too when you get there, but this is the norm in most European cities that I’ve visited. If I were to come back to Amsterdam (which I plan to) I’d stay here again :)

“Well positioned”

The staff at this hotel were lovely and helpful, and the breakfast was good. The location is really good, it was easy to walk to and from everything we wanted to see. The room was very small but it served it's purpose and the bed was very comfy. We were at the front of the hotel and while it was very noisy it actually didn't bother us because we were so active during the day that we slept really well!

“Get what you pay for”

The hotel staff was friendly, although they are not always at the front. They will hold your bags for you if you need them to after you check out. They room was kinda clean, clean bathroom..walls hall painted, dusty desk top, stained foot stools. The hotel is in a great location, can walk almost everywhere! Free wifi, cable and baby cots. The walls are really thin and the pillows are horrible.
