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 397 stops right at the doorstep of the hotel, which makes it easy to make your way from Schiphol for about €5,-.

“Wonderful stay in comfortable room: walk to transit, Leidenseplein, Overtoom, museum district!”

The Hampshire Hotel Theatre District is one block from Leidseplein bridge over Singelgracht canal and 1/2 block from Overtoom Straadt. The Museum District is a 20-minute walk or a short tram ride to the south. Leidseplein Square is a major nightspot 10-minute walk from the hotel towards the city centre. My room had a double bed which at first I thought was too soft when I sat on it, however, proved to be very comfortable. The good-sized room included an in-room safe, fan in the closet for hot days, ensuite bathroom with shower (tap water is OK to drink), and windows facing north. The front desk has 24-hour service; the staff was helpful, informative, and multi-lingual. There are elevators available (one by the front desk, and another by the meeting/dining area. The staircases are narrow but not too steep. The property was clean and well-maintained. The staff and breakfast attendants were responsive, welcoming, and very helpful. The front desk sells GVB transit passes making getting around on the wonderful transit system (the pass is valid for 24-hours from first use). 1-block from the hotel by the Leidseplein bridge there are stops for the Hop-on/Hop-off canal and bus tours. The breakfast buffet was substantial and a great way to start the day. My first morning I took too much of the cold meats, enough to make a sandwich for my lunch. Tea and coffee available all day; juices, milk were available for breakfast only. The buffet included a variety of bread, cold meats, boiled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, yoghurt. The hotel has a small bar area.

I would defo stay here again :) x
