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.

Visiting my daugher in Amsterdam

The hotel was great. When I dropped my daughter off in 8/2014 to start her master's program I stayed at the hotel. I like it so much I recommended it to my sister who visited my daughter in November. When I returned to visit my daughter in April with my husband who is wheelchair bound we stayed here again. The accessible room was large and the bathroom was as well. The only thing that was bothersome was the outside Lift so we had to have someone from the front desk pull out all the luggage racks and open the door for my husband when we were going out. This was okay. But upon our return it was difficult to get someone from the front desk to operate the lift for my husband. It was rainy and cold and he and I stood outside until the front desk person was available to operate the lift. Also the elevators inside the hotel were tiny and my husband's chair and I hardly fit in the elevator. The door to the room opened with the push of a button which is great but it did not close quickly enough and when it did it did not completely latch so when we were going out we had to wait for the door to close and pull it shut completely or it remained unlocked. Regardless the hotel was great, it was so centrally located and the staff was friendly and helpful. If I return to Amsterdam I will definitely consider staying here once again. Oh, the food in the restaurant was rather pricey but the bar was great!! So, was the café.

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.
