“Hampshire Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Arrived at 9am excellant welcome baggage stored 1hr to wait wwent for a quick look at canals back in time to be booked in with no fuss, lift up to floor 2 room 201&209 adjoining rooms lovely view over the canal. Rooms small but this was not a problem had our own bathroom old but very clean.
It was at least a 20min walk to Dam Square a further 10 to Central station.
The only thing is the pillows they are hard to get use to as they are square but this seems to be a Europe thing needed 2

Awesome hotel, huge room with either a lovely courtyard view or canal view, this hotel is unbelievably charming. Staff is very friendly and a quite decent breakfast provided an excellent stay in this otherwise overpriced hotel filled city. Honestly, Amsterdam is tricky if you don't wanna spend much and have a decent stay, until I found this hotel. Definitely will become my regular. Just a few minutes walk from city center.

I just came home from an amazing trip to Amsterdam. The hotel is situated perfect in relation to exploring the city by feet or bike. Even though everything is near by we was not affected by any noise and the neighborhood felt very safe after dark.

We were greeted by a young woman who told us about Amsterdam and where to find things, and all of the staff members were kind, smiling and welcoming.

The rooms are indeed very small, but with the nice weather we had we were only there for sleeping - and the bed was very comfortable.

The last star would have been given if the hotel rates included the continental breakfast. We had it one day and we did not think it was worth the 13 euros.

We would not hesitate to stay at Hampshire Hotel again, and we definitely visit Amsterdam again! Wonderful city :)

If you're not planning on spending much time in the room then this will be okay. VERY small room, and room itself extremely basic, as well as the bathroom. Breakfast okay, however staff were lovely the whole time.
Clean, basic, will get the job done, but don't expect space...

Quaint and quiet residential area, walking distance to most sites. The rooms are quite basic and dated. Building Geels like an old house rather than a hotel, which I suppose may be charming for some.

Small rooms but good value.

My actual date of travel was January 2012 and January 2011, both times were great. Staff were friendly and helpful, location was perfect and the rooms weren't amazing but still good for the price ( I stayed in another hotel for slightly cheaper in May 2011 and wish I hadn't). Good hotel, good price will be back in on 16th June 2013 and will be my regular from now on. Hope I get the first floor single room again with patio area ;)

This hotel was great, we stayed for 2 nights and had a pleasant stay. Room was small but just what you needed as not much time spent in the hotel. Great location, very close to everything. Staff was very friendly. Will definitely stay here again when returning to Amsterdam.
