Hampshire Hotel - Beethoven Amsterdam
Ranked #215 of 371 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Amsterdam is an amazing city, and we loved staying at the Beethoven Hotel. The room was comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was more than adequate. We were a stone's throw away from the tram, so getting to all the interesting places we wanted to visit, like the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum etc. was easy. The staff provided us with tickets for the tram, and booked us on a day trip to Vollendam and Marken. We were picked up from the hotel by bus and taken to the central tour depot.
The "continental" breakfast included a choice of scrambled egg and sausage as well, which was more than adequate for a good tart to the day.
We loved the street we were in, as we could sit and have a good meal while we watched the normal Amsterdam life go by (mostly on bicycles!). It almost felt like we were part of the community, and we had good fun practising our Dutch phrases.

Room Tip: On arrival we were given the option of upgrading to a better room, which we did. It is a very quiet...

Good clean and comfortable hotel, in a good location. The street is pleasantly tree-lined, with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, and close to very pleasant walks by a suburban "green-area" canal. The tram stops (5 & 24) into the city centre are 2 minutes' walk away. We had a corner-room over-looking the street, with its trees and park-style benches, which was very nice. Yet there was surprisingly little noise from the street. A local supermarket was just round the corner.
The bedrooms are generous in size, the shower-toilets are well-kept. An electric kettle is supplied along with coffee & tea sachets, sugar & creamers. The wardrobes, however, were disappointingly narrow & small, with only a small amount of hanging space. The shelf space was so high up, that it was only usable by a tall person (I'm small), or someone with a set of steps. The rooms have air-conditioning that you can switch on & off at will. Very useful on a hot day or a warm, still night. The accoustic insulation seemed to be good, as we didn't hear a thing from other adjacent bedrooms.

The breakfast room was just behind the reception area, and was rather small. The TV is always on bringing you the latest international news in English. The buffet breakfasts were fairly good & filling, with cereals, tinned fruit & yoghourt to start with. But the same "boiled" mini-sausages, the same scrambled eggs (though this was nicely cooked), the same 3 sliced cold meats, the same 3 sliced cheeses - every morning for a week, did get a bit boring. A bit more variety would have been nice - e.g. fried bacon, mushrooms, hot tomatoes, small burgers, and perhaps a pot of hot beans. Still, everything was spotlessly clean.
The staff are pleasant & helpful.
It's strictly a No-Smoking hotel. You could be fined 50 Euros for smoking in the bedroom - even if you stand blowing the smoke out of the window; and you'll only get it back when you leave, if the hotel housekeeper is satisfied that no further smoking has taken place.

Room Tip: Ask for one with 2 single beds.

Booked in to this hotel after our booked accommodation lost our booking and tried to raise the price.

Very good value, and convenient placed for public transport. Easy walking distance to the convention centre.

Rooms basic but very clean. Breakfast included and ample.
Staff were very helpful.

We stayed at the Beethoven for 3 nights early September. We found the room clean, comfortable and well maintained. The tram into the City Centre stops outside on the main road and travel was quick and easy. The service of the staff was excellent.
When a small issue arose, which could have developed into a major problem, the management were extremely quick to react and resolve the matter to our satisfaction. We cannot praise their efforts enough, they took appropriate action and more than made up to us what had gone wrong before.
Special thanks go to Ling who dealt with the matter, many thanks for an otherwise wonderful stay!

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and used it as a base for seeing Amsterdam. It is located in an up market area in south Amsterdam about 5 minutes walk from the museum zone, away from the city. Our room was large, clean and very pleasant despite over looking the road. Noise was not a problem. Staff were good. The tram stop is right across the road which makes access into the city very easy, though we walked it a couple of times which was fine provided you like to walk. The south Amsterdam station is about 15 minutes walk away where you can get a train to Schipol in 6 minutes. Price was attractive as well.

Sad hotel with terrible personnel. Strange people always trying to find out what you do in your room. Once a day it could be fore times. Very dark and grey inside. More suitable for old grannies. Breakfast is everyday same, very small variety. Hotel it self more look like hostel, in rooms you can find out some doors, which is not main enterence, and someone is starting to open this door at 12 o'clock in the evening. I would not reccomend anyone this hotel even it is the last place in Amsterdam!

I stayed for 5 days and found the room to be clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom could have been larger but was again clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was poor but your in a good area to venture out and find better.
The hotel lacks a bar but luckily there is a great bar with good food 50m away, turn left out of the hotel.
Wifi is available for 3euros a day for roughly 5mbps, free in the lobby. However with no bar you'd have to sit at a breakfast table to use it.
For a 3 star it's not bad, you get everything you'd expect for the price.
