“Great location, very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Hampshire Hotel is in a great location. Right off of Rembrandt Square. 15 minute walk to Red Light District. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so we were able to leave our bags with the concierge. Room was perfect. Very clean bathroom with free toiletries. Lots of space, TV, mini bar. Extra pillows. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to people who are looking for a comfortable, more upscale place to stay in Amsterdam.

The hotel is situated in a great location, near shops and restaurants which was great!

The rooms themselves are very specious, and very comfortable. However, I was travelling with friends, and the bathrooms have glass doors which was a little uncomfortable, however this was not a major problem and the hotel was lovely.

Would recommend this hotel!

Finding a decent but affordable hotel room in Amsterdam is always a battle. There are not enough hotels in the centre of Amsterdam so demand often exceeds supply.

Finding something decent but affordable on Saturday night is virtually impossible. The hotel sector is aware of the fact that everyone wants to get wasted in Amsterdam on a Saturday night, and exploits that desire mercilessly. If you come to Amsterdam for a Saturday night, your only option is to drop your trousers and bend over...

The overall quality of Amsterdam's hotel rooms are poor. Everyone knows it. Everyone expects to put up with crappy, tiny rooms. Hotels that do provide a nice, large room capitalize on that expectation by charging exorbitant amounts. A decent room that would cost $100 in Orlando will set you back something like EUR 450 in Amsterdam. (Yes, Orlando is the standard I am going by. If you don't see the similarity between Disney World and Amsterdam, you haven't been paying attention. And even if you don't believe that Amsterdam has been transformed into a strange disneyesque Holland Land cum Party Central swamped by low-class tourists, the simple truth is that people want to go to Orlando just as much as they want to go to Amsterdam.)

However, it seems to me that the Hampshire Hotel chain has helped things somewhat since it entered the market. It does its best with Amsterdam's poor infrastructure and, every so often, is even willing to reduce its prices to fill the rooms, something Dutch hoteliers never seem willing to do. This means that occasionally -- if you're vigilant -- you can book a stay at this nice chain hotel for the same cost charged by a dreadful 2-star dump down the road. But never on a Saturday of course. Even Hampshire Hotels follows that guideline.

I have to add that I feel sorry for people working in the hotel sector in Amsterdam. Amsterdam attracts a certain kind of visitor...

My room at this hotel was upscale and nice enough. I think I got a special room because it was largish by Amsterdam standards (20 square metres) and had a view of an inner courtyard through two large windows. Coffee maker.

The location of the hotel is excellent. Just off Rembrandtplein, so tram 4 takes you practically to the door.

Downsides: Couldn't get the aircon below 19 degrees so it never cooled the room properly. Couldn't open the windows fully either. Not enough English stations on the TV at all (but I enjoyed the music stations). Like at all Hampshire Hotels, the bed was too soft for my liking. My room was a little frayed around the baseboard and windows.

This hotel as a strict no-smoking policy.

The breakfast was OK but certainly not worth EUR 18.50.

Final word. If you can get a room here at a good price, book immediately. It's a decent hotel in a great location. If you pay full price to stay on a Saturday night, expect to feel a little ripped off.

The rooms are small but very clean and quiet. The hotel is close to the Flower Market. We really feel it is a great value compared to others in the area. The Hampshire Rembrandt Square and the Eden Hotel are the same place. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. We did not eat breakfast there but opted for Starbucks across the street. Haesje Claes is a nearby restaurant that we frequent for dinner. There is good shopping nearby Dam Square. The A tram number 4 or 9 stops near the hotel which we used to return to Centraal Station.

This is my second time staying at this hotel, and wont be the last. Rembrandt square to me is the best area in Amsterdam to stay for a tourist. Shopping, Starbucks, cafés, hotels, trams, taxis, and bike rentals all right out the front door. The breakfast at the hotel was top notch, and just what we needed when we had to be up early for exclusions. The hotel concierge went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. Bike rentals and excursions, he took care of it all. Called car services for us when needed and all with a smile. The reception also checked us in early and upgraded our room upon arrival! Beautiful clean suite with every amenity. The room service from their downstairs affiliated French restaurant Flo, was to die for. Highly recommend !!!!

Off Rembrandt square, but there end the positive points.
Negatives: the room set up was such that the bathroom had glass panelling, semi frosted, so that minimum privacy was afforded. I chose to go on holiday with my wife, she is very intelligent and beautiful but I don't want to wake up to see her on the toilet. Maybe this is an issue with me rather than the hotel.
Amsterdam was very wet when we visited and returning to the room to dry and watch the TV for an hour we had the choice of BBC2 or Cbeebies. A minor inconvenience I understand, but unusual I'd suggest for a hotel of this rating not to have at least an English speaking news network.
The rooms smelt of smoke.

Location easy to get around from. We had room 12 which had a bit of a drain smell and no view only of two large fans so room was very dark and I couldn't see what the weather was like and the curtains were hanging off in places. It was reasonably quiet apart from the fact we had a locked door next to us and u needed to put your card in to come in and out so anyone using it made the door slam it made you jump waking you up. There were 12 of us and I think we had the worst room even though we booked together and booked well in advance and it wasn't particularly cheap and not breakfast included. We didn't eat there so I cannot comment on the food everything else was ok and clean etc. bed was comfortable.
