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,-.

“A Pleasant Stay!”

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights last week... I was a bit dubious due to bad reviews on here! I was pleasantly surprised the rooms were comfortable , clean . situated minutes from the centre in wonderful old Amsterdam ! Away from the tourist trap of the city. The prices were reasonable . Breakfast was adequate and filling. Endless coffee! Friendly Staff, particularly the night staff (Alidi) she gave us suggestions as to where to go and what to do, She really is an assesst to the hotel! She summed up Amsterdam friendly and warm! Over we were thrilled with what we got. For visiting the city all you need is some where clean comfortable and friendly. This is it! We will definitely return. Don't pay too much attention to bad reviews!

“Don't read bad reviews!!”

4 of us stayed here from 3rd May - 8th May in 2 separate rooms and we were all a bit worried about how our rooms would be due to the bad reviews which were written on here but when we arrived the staff were always friendly and we arrived at 8:00am but our room was not ready until 2pm so we were able to leave our bags in the luggage room and walk into town without having to carry our bags around. The rooms were always clean and the beds were very comfortable!! The location was the perfect place to walk to everywhere we needed and it was right opposite the canals. They also offer bike hire at the hotel. A two minute walk up the road and you were right by lots of places to eat & drink and only a 20-25 minute walk to dam square and not far from lots of other places to visit too. Free hot drinks are provided by the hotel too. Overall, this place was great so please do not read bad reviews as they honestly are deceiving! We stayed in room 409 which was on the top floor, very spacious and had a lovely view looking out! Will 100% be back! thank you for a great stay :)

“Poorly clean with broken bed”

My partner stayed one night. It's a nice area and easy to get to. The room itself is typically amsterdam tiny but the bed itself had broken slats and later we someone's else's hair in the bathroom. We brought this up the concierge and only got a response with a shrug of the shoulder and half bloated apology. Not recommended for the price they've charged.

“What more could you want?”

Stayed here with my partner for three nights in March and after all of the negative reviews was slightly apprehensive upon arrival. I had absolutely no reason to be. Hotel location is brilliant, within walking distance of everything you could want to see in the city and a 5 minute walk from bus stop to the airport! Ideal! The hotel itself is lovely; rooms are clean with everything you could need. Yes they are slightly smaller than some of the larger hotels, but in such a beautiful city why would you want to spend time stuck in a hotel room?! The breakfast is basic, but lovely and the hotel provides you with free hot drinks at any time. Perfect to take with you exploring on a cold day. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again, it appears some people are simply too hard to please.
