The name of this Hotel near the centre of Amsterdam seems to change. I booked it as The Eden Amsterdam Centre but it now branded as the Hampshire Eden. It has an address of Nassaukade 387-390
We booked for 4 days for £320 during August 2013.
The hotel is situated a few minutes walk from LEIDESEPIEIN – a lively shopping and eating area at the south of the City. From the Central Station you can get a 1,2 or 5 tram – 2.80 euros single. A 48 hour ticket is 12 euros.
First the negative. Our twin room was small – this might be common for Amsterdam.
The room was well equipped with a modern TV (with BBC 1), a smart bathroom (good shower) and it was clean and tidy. The whole Hotel has that modern feeling and is attractively set out.
There was no air con but there was a fan. It was about 30 degrees when we stayed.
A good continental breakfast was included in the price. Scrambled egg, streaky bacon, cheese, hams, rolls, yoghurts, fresh fruit, breads, juices, tea and coffee, etc.
All in all you could easily fill yourself up for the day.
A real positive was the free supply of Tea and Coffee available all day in the reception area – excellent. On the minus side, one busy morning they ran out of cutlery – a 10 minute wait for some more.
There was free wifi available which worked very well in our room.
Generally the staff were warm helpful and friendly.
Overall the hotel was good value given Amsterdam prices – certainly for a shortish stay and we would recommend it without too much hesitation.
