This is what you would expect from a 3 star hotel which is what the Hampton is. The staff do a good job but there are a couple of issues that become apparent during one's stay. For breakfast, they put up a good spread but have a small eating area for the capacity of guests the hotel accommodates so it's a bit of a mad house if you happen to wander off for a bite around their peak periods.
The bed is good enough for a decent night's sleep as well which is always a bonus!
I was here for a few days; it's in what's considered a not so decent part of the city but as Amsterdam is 'generally' safe and if you have your wits about you; you'd be good.
The metro + train + bus station is about 2 minutes walk away from the hotel which is a bonus as you could connect with most parts of the city very conveniently. Amsterdam Central is just around 15 minutes by Metro 54; Schipol Airport is reachable within the same amount of time as well.
