Dining

Restaurant & Bar
Two of the most special places to "wine & dine" in Amsterdam are located in the Hampshire Hotel - Amsterdam American. Our Caf Americain is a sparkling "hot spot" for local Amsterdam people, writers and artists: who come along for a bite, a drink, or just for reading the newspaper at the reading table. Do you fancy meeting someone famous? Both national and international movie stars have been spotted in our renown Bar Americain from time to time. Bar Americain has recently been restyled and therefore is even more popular than before amongst locals. It is also still the "hot spot" for national and international movie stars. An ideal place for VIP-spotting while drinking an award winning cocktail. During summertime the terrace offers a great opportunity to watch people.
Cafe Americain
Wine and dine among the local Amsterdam people, artists and actors. The ambiance in the dazzling Cafe Americain is dynamic and most of all cosy. It has been called Amsterdam's living room by many and that is exactly how it feels. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, just a coffee or a pleasant drink. At the Cafe Americain or on the amazing terrace during the summer time, you will always feel comfortable.
Terrace
During the summertime and when the sun is shining, in front of the hotel the terrace is openend. Were you can enjoy a drink, lunch or dinner while watching the fountain and the sun.

Spring Vacation

This hotel was excellent. The location was amazing, we were able to walk just about everywhere and a plus was the bus from the airport stopped right in front of the hotel. The rooms are very clean and the staff are all nice. The breakfast buffet is slightly expensive but it is really good, and the had mimosas, so it was worth it. I would definitely stay here again if I am ever in Amsterdam.

A Classic

The hotel is a classic. Couldn't be situated in a better location. A charmer for a first time visitor. Less of a business hotel, as the floors creak and the hotel is showing its age. I love this hotel, but for work, i'll stay elsewhere. For pleasure, i'd gladly bring my wife there.

Not bad at all!

Nice place to stay. Located centrally and can walk anywhere. This was my third stay here and very accommodating. Cafe was always busy but I did not eat there. Too many other choices within the area. Great for people watching.

I had NO water for the first half of my day

Putting aside the no running water for the first half of my day, the experience was average at best. The room was small and narrow, the TV did not work, and they didn't take away my room service until for awhile. You must be paying for the location as it is next to the casino. I will not return to this place.
