Family Trip

The room was incredibly noisy. Outside voices and traffic passed right through the windows. The bathroom was tiny even by European standards and the entire floor was covered in water after a shower. Will not stay here again.

Fab time in Amsterdam

The Hampshire hotel is straight across the road from Artis Zoo, ideal for trams to centre, (takes 10 mins if that). The room was clean, comfy, bathroom with shower was quite small but was fine for a short stay. Towels changed daily. Staff are friendly and helpful. Safe in room. Tea and coffee in reception is free, we went out for breakfast, so didn't try in hotel . Bars and restaurants nearby and within walking distance. People are really friendly/chatty. Would recommend for a short stay in Amsterdam, we loved it, it was our first visit but we will definately be going back.

Brilliant!

My husband and I stayed at the brilliant Lancaster Hotel. Breakfast great and real value for money (if booked in advance). The hotel was spotless and our room cleaned thoroughly every day! We upgraded to a large room (216) and it was well worth it. The free coffee machine in the foyer was an added bonus and access to wifi and a computer really useful. I emailed to say it was my husbands birthday and they put a gift in the room. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. It was so easy to get into the centre either by tram 9 outside the hotel or a 10 min walk.

Basic crash pad in a good spot

This was the third Hampshire property I stayed at in Amsterdam. It was the least impressive among them although it was an alright place for a short stay. The room was clean, just very small and standard zero frills arrangement as is most of the budget hotels in the city. They are maybe college dorm room equivalent. The lobby is small but comfortable and huge bonus of nespresso machine always on and available. Very hard to find a latte after 9pm in Ams. Staff at all the hampshires seem above the norm, and everyone here was great too. The zoo is across the street and you'll hear some great noises from there in the morning. Don't know what they are. Also a small and beautiful park adjacent to the property have te location a great feel when outdoors. The Coffee Art shop right next door has awesome breakfast sandwiches and coffee in the morning for a good price. You can catch the tram to anywhere and the hotel is a little out of the fray but still convenient. Bottom line a good spot for a solo traveler if the price is right. Not a room you're going to want to hang out in all day though or for extended stays in the city. Hampshire Eden and Hamoshire Manor both classier digs.

Great Value Hotel

The Hampshire was excellent hotel for my work trip. The only downside is the Double bed is really two single beds pushed together, so there is a gap. Also the following FYI's 1) No A/C in the room, not big deal to me when I traveled but FYI 2) Bathrooms and Rooms would be considered small for Americans, frankly very small. Not uncomfortable at all but just small. 3) the Breakfast is Awesome 4) Location was great a 10 minute walk and you are downtown.

Decent Budget Hotel

Hotel room was clean and tidy with good facilities although a fridge in our room would have been a bonus. For the price can't complain and it was only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Amsterdam. Gets a thumbs up from us!
