“Good hotel in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Hotel clean, neat and tidy. Room quite small, but clean and tidy. Great location, 15 minute walk to the centre, good café across the road on the corner for breakfast. Free tea/coffee in reception. A great base from which to explore this fabulous city, ideally located on a tram route if you'd prefer, or just walk to the city. Staff very polite and helpful. Use the Connexion hotel shuttle bus from the airport - excellent door to door.

Myself and four friends stayed in this hotel for four nights in January 2014 (not May as tripadvisor is saying!) We were very happy with the hotel, we wanted somewhere close to the city for nightlife but also that was quiet so we could have a good rest everynight!
This hotel was perfect for all our needs, it was close to the city centre, probably a 15minute walk or a very short tram ride, 5 mins tops. There are tram stops everywhere and one just outside the hotel which was very handy!! There is also a very big supermarket just a 10 minute walk up the road which was great to stock up on breakfasts etc.
I would definitely recommend this hotel again, it was clean, central and quiet!

We've come from the u.k to Amsterdam for a long weekend away just my partner and I and loved it! Perfect location the hotel is in away from all the hustle and bustle from red light district and the 2 others hot spots! Nice walk into the nightlife, Amsterdam is massive so bring some good walking shoes! I wouldn't recommend hiring a bike in the city, they are very serious with their bikes and just don't stop for anything they also get quite pissed off with tourist always in the way! Haha but you eventually learn! Overall hotel is great would recommend to all ages, quiet and safe

We really enjoyed our visit to Amsterdam, the woman on reception was really helpful and the hotel was always clean... We really liked the location as well as it was close to the centre but in a small little suburb area with plenty of small shops near by, would stay here again!

I chose this hotel for my partners 21st birthday and although this was a few years ago (March 2012) I thought I'd share our experience anyway as I'm new to reviewing on here. The Hampshire is an absolute gem so close to the city and such brilliant value for money. I think the whole long weekend with flights etc only cost me a couple of hundred pounds - you'll struggle to find that in many mainstream cities across Europe. My Dad used to live in Amsterdam so I have stayed in various hotels and apartments across the city (including his house). I booked this hotel for a few reasons and was not disappointed. The hotel is slightly out of the main city however to really appreciate this wonderful city (as I wanted my partner to) you need to (a) walk (b) cycle (c) catch the Tram! Bikes, trams and feet are part of the citys culture and charm. If you want to roll out of bed straight into the pub or a 'cafe' with minimal effort book yourself a cheap old hostel in the centre and stop moaning. There is a tram stop conveniently a few minutes away from the Hotel. The city tax that people so often complain about is a common thing to the city - do your research before you go! Or just read the hotels bloody website. Most city hotels do not even have en-suite bathrooms so the fact in this hotel they are generally small is a negligible price to pay for the cliche risk of staying somewhere with a shared bathroom with a group of drunken messy blokes on a stag do. We found the bathroom adequate for our needs considering we came to Amsterdam for the city, not to spend hours in a luxurious bathroom preening ourselves. You want a huge bathroom? Look around for a different hotel and pay more, simple.
This Hotel is clean, the staff are lovely and it is perfect for anyone on a short break. We opted to not have breakfast which is perfect as the Dutch are a wonderfully laid back people - learn their ways; get up, get dressed, go walk, find food! there are numerous places to eat and drink nearby. The hotel is opposite a zoo which we intend to go to on our next visit. An absolute gem for the price.

Our experience of the Hampshire Hotel was a positive one. Upon arriving the building is in a quiet and appealing area of Amsterdam not too far from the city on a tram and opposite the Artis Zoo. The hotel is in good condition with amenities expected. We were aloud to check in a few hours early and handed over our fifty euro deposit meaning we could go back out and not have to drag our cases around the city before check in time. The room looked good and reflected a recurring theme that the amsterdam tourism board seems to have going.

Tea and Coffee facilities were available in the room but no milk to use for the whole stay. Maid ignored servicing our room as she could hear us inside the room after popping back to pick up some things after we visited the zoo so the room didn't get looked after during our stay.

All in all, nice atmosphere however the walls were paper thin and we were kept up by the sound of a baby crying each night. Nice view from the window as we could see the flamingo pond at the zoo which was nice to wake up to. Lovely patisserie around the corner where we went for breakfast because the hotel breakfast was far too expensive.

Used Superbreaks to book this trip and travelled via ferry from Hull. Well organised on their part and would use again.

Id definitely use this hotel again if needs must. Its in an idyllic setting and is worth the money. But I know you can also get better value from other hotels in the city that are a star higher.
