The hotel is conveniently situated in a quiet area, two minutes' walk from a tram stop for the no.9 (Dam Square and Centraal Station) and the no.14 (Nine Streets). There's also a night bus to Centraal from the same stop if your flight arrives or departs when the trams aren't running. There are a number of decent restaurants (italian, chinese)... More

The Hampshire Hotel Lancaster is located just across the road from the Artis Royal Zoo, and just a 30 second walk to the right will take you to a quiet park and a whole bunch of flamingos that you can see through the fence looking on to the zoo. My husband said it was a really strange experience going out... More

The Hotel is perfect for a short weekend stay, We spend a night there with friends to go explore Amsterdam a bit. The location is perfect for this goal. it's just a 5 min walk towards the red light district The hotel itself is located in a very old building and this shows. Although the service is good and the...

For £65 a night, we couldn't really complain. The location is really good; you're not in the middle of everything but in a really nice area with plenty of bars & much more local (higher quality) restaurants - see some of my other reviews for where to eat/drink in this area. You can easily reach the hotel on public transport... More

The hotel was situated opposite the Zoo. The room was small, but had a good view, clean and the beds comfortable. Just right for a base to explore Amsterdam. The hotel only served breakfast. Which is clearly mentioned on its site. There is a trek to get to your breakfast, but the food and service is alright once there. There... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in March 2014. When we arrived the first room we were given was very small, the size of a cupboard. When I opened the door I could do one step and be in bed! I was shocked of the size of the room and I went to the reception to ask for... More

Dear Mummyshorts, thank you for writing your review overhere. I am very surprised to hear about the taxi fair. The maximum a taxi should cost is € 45,- per ride and that is why we only work with the Amsterdam Taxi Centrale. If you still have the receipt or have the number of the taxi, I would be happy to...

Stayed at the Hampshire for 2 nights. The hotel is in a great location. The best tram to get from Centraal is the number 9 which stops at the "Artis" stop. Our room was on the street side of the building. It was very quiet and I got a good nights sleep both nights I was there. The room was... More
