Stayed at the American Hotel again after many many years. Location is outstanding on Leidseplein, with wondrrful turn of century (1882+) architecture and ambience.. Recently renovated rooms and foyer, appropriate for a new owner in Hampshire. Front desk service and attention were excellent and hotel style blends old and new quite well. A few bugbears, however, reflects need for closer... More

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay! With a reasonably-priced upgrade, we were given a corner room with 2 balconies, providing wonderful views of the Leidseplein plaza below. All personnel (reception, housekeeping, concierge, restaurant) were pleasant, courteous, and immediately helpful when we made several minor requests. The bartender/server in the outdoor café was so friendly and... More

Hotel is very nice, room size is OK if not large. The thing that set this hotel apart was Daan on reception when we arrived. He was professional, efficient, and gave us all the advice for a long weekend we could possibly ask for. We asked for a recommendation for a late lunch and he was spot on (Cafe George... More

Hello travelers. Me and my girlfriend had a difficult time deciding where should we stay (area wise), dam square (centrum) or Leidseplein. We chose Leidseplein and we do not regret for a moment. This area has everything you want and need, from canal boat trips to shopping stores like h&m and caffes like Starbucks. It also acquires the well known... More

This was our first time in Amsterdam and stayed at Hampshire Hotel was so convenient. Lots of good restaurants nearby, tram station just in front of the hotel. The room was cozy with the canal view. The canal cruise was just across the hotel entrance, staff was friendly. Best thing is...we good good deal with tripadvisor!

Great place in every way, but...the twin beds are so narrow that one can barely turn. AND the mattresses so soft that I ended up putting mine on the floor. I felt like I was camping. I would not recommend this hotel unless you like beds that are like marshmallows.

Very comfortable and well appointed room. Staff was very professional and helpful. Marvelous art-deco restaurant décor. Excellent location near to the world class museums and canal water taxis. Very good restaurants in the neighborhood. Plentiful, well-prepared breakfasts.
