“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Great location, everything of importance is within walking distance (if you don't mind walking - if not then the trams are great.) was disapointed that our double room was a twin room with the beds pushed together. very romantic! we were only here for two nights and didn't really "use" the hotel so can't comment further.

Room Tip: if you want a double bed, ask when you book!

From the minute we checked in, we received excellent customer service from this hotel. The room was clean and the beds are really comfy. The breakfast buffet was one of the best we have had, due to the selection of food available and the fact everything was so fresh. Location of hotel was great for first timers in Amsterdam, easy to get to by public transport and within walking distance to most of the main city attractions

Great hotel local to all of the attractions. Rooms were very clean and staff were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Although check in was not until 3pm you could leave your bags in a secure room, until the room was ready. This meant you could explore Amsterdam without taking all your baggage with you.

Great location. Could walk to the hotel from the train station. Myself and my partner rented bikes for the 4 days we were visiting so to the main square was only a 5 min bike journey. The tram passes the front door of hotel also. Red light district is 10 min walk from hotel. Breakfast was fantastic. Great selection of foods. We were told our room was upgraded. It was clean and very contemporary. The door on the bathroom was clear and frosted glass only. A little strange! Had dinner in the hotel the night we arrived and was lovely. Would def stay in this hotel again.

Stayed here with 3 friends late Feb. Really good location; off the main Damrak 'drag' and about a 15 minute walk from central station. Pretty esay to find-head down Damrak and onto Rokin, then cross over to the left and cut through Amstellstrat. You'll find there are some very helpful and polite homeless guys that will give you directions if you get stuck- of course they expect a couple of euros!

Checking in was easy and eficient but they do want a 100 Euro deposit for damages. I can only guess this is aimed at the stag parties, which we were-but not a rowdy group by any means.

The room was a good size and very clean with modern decor. The bathroom is also spacious. The door is frosted with no lock-something to bare in mind if you are with friends rather than partners!

We didn't have breakfast because it was 16 Euros a day, very expensive in my opinion! We would recommend a cafe a few minutes walk round to waterlooplein next to the flee market (turn left out of the hotel, over the canal, and you'll soon see it). Less than 10 euros for ham eggs on toast and a coffee- yum!

Bed was comfortable and a goo selection of toiletries in the bathroom. It was also nice to have a kettle with tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

Location is at Rembrantplein, there is plenty of bars, restaurants and Brown coffee shops in the area. The red light district is about a 10 minute walk away. There is a concentration of gay bars in this area as well.

Check out was easy and we were all satisfied with the hotel overall. We would stay here again.

I love this hotel! No really I do!

Every time I visit Amsterdam I make sure I check out the Hampshire as my first choice. I have stayed here over 5 times and each time was a pleasure. From check-in to check out the experience was always superb.

The rooms are well appointed and spacious. The bathroom is spotless and the Rituals bath products you really feel you are being looked after. Nothing is too big a deal for the staff, and if you request something they delivery it promptly and with a smile.

The location of the hotel is very central with a wonderful view over the canal. Tram lines are 2 mins walk from the front door, and there is a lot to see in the surrounding area.

If you are looking for a central hotel, that has great room and an excellent breakfast then look no further!

The Hampshire Hotel has it all, and I can't wait to return!

I booked this hotel for my husband and i and we stayed from 9-11 March, and we had a wonderful time!!!
When we arrived despite it pouring if rain, we were met at reception by a very friendly receptionist which is always a good start. We couldn't check in until 3pm so had a walk about which usually we wouldn't mind, although the rain put us off a bit ...... But hotel couldn't help this.

We stayed in room 182 and the room was very modern And clean, although the only little niggle i had was i felt as though the heating didn't work to well and felt a bit chilly!!!

Breakfast was brilliant, with lots of choice really couldn't fault it!!!!!

We would live to return to Amsterdam and would definitely stay here again, well worth the money and in an ideal location
