Contemporary, new, stylish 90 room hotel. A chain, but feels unique, chic, attentive to guests. My many pre-stay inquiries were answered promptly and helpfully by Arjan and Laura, who both went above and beyond. We opted for a “Double Deluxe Room” - check-in was smooth, with hors d'oeuvres and candies at reception. Excellent value for money.
Because we were staying 3 nights in a slow month, we were given a corner room on the 8th floor - room 815, on the small side, but with excellent amenities and an absolutely perfect layout. Note that the rooms with balcony are smaller than those without, so determine what is more important to you - we would always choose a balcony over more interior space. Ours was a corner room with windows that opened on two sides, allowing for best views and cross breezes. It had a (European) king bed, mini-fridge containing a bottle of still and sparkling water, complimentary small bottle of wine with glasses - a nice touch even if the wine was bit sweet, coffee-tea facilities, separate shower and deep soaker tub, and grey bathrobes and slippers. All furnishings were attractive and comfortable - a bed I never wanted to leave, high quality linens, plump duvet, cream leather chairs and side table for feet, laptop or food, roomy closet, full-length mirror, great TV, stylish fixtures, and convenient lighting. Deep plush carpeting and concrete floors made for absolutely silent moving about and no need for slippers. The water seeping from under the shower stall doors did not bother us as the floor slope is designed to minimize its spread onto the bathroom floor and maximize it flowing into the drain.
Music motif and colour scheme throughout was delightful - a spiffy, clean, modern, attractive little establishment, with gorgeous lounge and breakfast room.
Breakfast was plentiful, varied - lots of selection in breads, cereals, fruits, yogurts, beverages, scrambled and boiled eggs and bacon, even two types of sparkling wine/champagne in silver buckets.
A unique dining feature was the young piano player, Vitautus, who provided the most exquisite background music, sometimes for dinner, sometimes breakfast, and sometimes in the lounge. With his extensive repertoire, he played everything from swing, to Broadway, jazz, and Chopin and created such a welcoming and luxurious ambiance.
Dinner at the restaurant is highly recommended. The food was wonderful and great value for money compared with restaurants in town, and our server, Michael, with his friendly, positive demeanor, delivered prompt and generous service with a smile.
Quibbles: wifi ws available in lounge and breakfast areas but not in room (we brought our own wireless access point, so no issue for us); no clock radio.
If you are looking for a hotel that delivers long on amenities, is 6 pleasant minutes’ walk to town, is deliciously free from the nighttime sounds of party goers and late night revellers AND other guests and hotel staff, and offers comfortable surroundings at every turn, I can't recommend the Hotel Hampshire highly enough. We would never stay anywhere else in Delft.
