“Great Location for City Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We checked into Eden Hotel very quick and efficiently. We were aloud in our rooms over 3 hours earlier than stated which was nice, so we could settle in and go explore. They take a 150 euro as a no smoking deposit. We used a debit card which they did not charge. Plus the city tax was about 10 euros which we paid cash. Our room was nice and modern. Quite small but we was aware of this as you can upgrade to a larger room. There was a comfy double bed and TV with basic channels ( extra channels and movies available at a sur-charge of 22.50 ) The shower wasn't the best as there was a shower head above the bath but no curtain so everywhere got soaked unless you lent into the corner! The hairdryer also would only turn on for 15-20 seconds then would turn off you would have to wait 2-3 minutes for another 20 second blow! I attempted for about 20 minutes then gave up. Bring your own if you have long hair or wanted to style! The concierge and staff were all very friendly and helpful. Providing us with bike rental information (17.50 per day from hotel) , sports bar locations and taxi information. A taxi from the hotel to the train station cost us 11 euros. You can easily get the train from the station to the airport which is 3 stops at about 4.20 euros each way. This hotel was in a good location and a great place to crash over the weekend or short break. It fits its purpose and we had a great time.
The corridors linking the rooms are not as modern and were not cleaned throughout our duration, we passed the same cotton buds every morning! The Ice Bar is a few doors down so very nearby. Its 15 euros and you get 2 drinks included :) You are walking distance to all the local attractions. Perfect for a short city break.

Room is extra extra small, when you are on toilet , you may jump on to bed. From shower with a single step you Will be at bedroom. There are moulds on the shower floor. And the price is too much for that graveyard. But the location is wonderful. Rembrand plein is better than damrak, and the hotel is at the beginning of it. People at the reception are very polite and helpful.

I visited Hampshire Eden hotel back in October. The location was amazing!!! Less than a five minute train ride from Central Station on the #4. Rembrantsplein is right behind the the hotel, with plenty food choices. I think it took us less than 15 minutes to walk to Red Light District.

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a warm welcome by the concierge. The gentleman personally volunteered to assist with our luggage to our room, gave us discounted vouchers and highlighted the main attractions on a map for us. I thought this was very nice of him, seeing that we didn't even ask and it was our first time in Amsterdam. It definitely paid off in the end because we never had to ask any questions. Check-in was fast, and to our surprise we were allowed to check-in early, close to 10am. We were upgraded to the executive room, which was spacious with an amazing view. The room was very clean! The bathroom was nice, kind of small (but wayyyyyyyyyyyyy bigger the one we had in Munich, Germany). Unfortunately, the bathroom floor stayed wet because the shower door only covered half the shower. Guess, us Americans need the extra shower doors, lol.

Overall - nice stay, GREAT staff and convenient location!

Quick one night stay. I arrived at around 9 am and got granted an early check-in with no problem. Room is simple and nice, no free TV though (who needs it anyway). Great location, short walk to Dam, central station and the redlight district. Would definitely recommend it.

This hotel is in an excellent location to explore the center of Amsterdam.

I managed to get a room a week or so before I was traveling, and as such, I got a good deal on the price through one of the online booking companies. Had I payed the full price, I would have been disappointed, but with the discount I feel I payed an agreeable amount.

The breakfast buffet was tasty and had a good selection of food to choose from. The staff at breakfast were very pleasant.

The rooms in the hotel are very small. I am led to believe that the rooms on the south side of the hotel - The Hampshire - are slightly larger and nicer than the ones on the north facing canal side of the hotel - The Eden. I had booked a room which was a double, with the possibility of two double beds if available , however, upon arrival the two beds were not available. Instead I had a room with two single beds pushed together to make one double bed. This was not really ideal. My other grievance was that the extractor fan in the bathroom was not working. I reported this fault to reception and a repairman was sent around the same day. He said the fault lay with an extractor on the rooftop, and he would report this to reception. The fan never worked for the 5 days I stayed at the hotel. I wonder if all the extractor fans were broken, as the downstairs lobby often had a distinctive unpleasant odour to it.

Despite my gripes, I had a pleasant stay and would consider staying there again.

Staff were helpful. Rooms good size with shower bathroom. The double bed turned out to be two single beds pushed together but they were comfortable.
We did not eat in the hotel as there were so many different places to eat on and around the Rembrandt Square.
We walked from here to all the place we wanted to go.
