Well positioned, basic comfort.

This hotel is very adequate for a short break on a budget. Situated near tram route and cinemas, restaurants etc, only ten minutes from the centre, also had a regular bus service to the airport nearby at a cost of 5 euros. Breakfast was rather meagre for 9.50 euros, relative to the overall cost.

small and cozy

The best thing about this hotel is its location. You have the access to almost all the clubs and restaurants.

Hampshire (formerly Eden) Hotel Review

Location is excellent--within walking distance of the various museums and shopping. Tram lines galore in the immediate neighborhood but be sure to check out information on the new "O-V Chipkaart" which will allow you to travel on public conveyance--tram, bus and railroad--at a very reasonable price. Hotel is small but comfortable if all you want to do is sleep. Cleanliness was so-so with attention to floors/carpets needed. Breakfast was great, but NOT included in the price, which was disappointing. Costs an additional 12 Euros per day and that's NOT worth it given the price of the hotel room in the first place. Staff was helpful and friendly--even saved me some money by recommending use of this versus that. From all indications, this hotel was frequented by professional (not young people) which reduces night time door slamming, etc. A good stay!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use the tram to get from here to there. Get an "O-V Chipkaart." You can get one at the Railroad Station or most bookstores. Card costs 17.50 Euros but has an initial 10 Euro deposit already on it. To add additional money, go to the railroad station. This method is used throughout the Netherlands now. You can buy a "one-way" ticket from the tram drivers but the price far exceeds that needed when the Chipkaart is used. Check it out.

Room was TINY but close to many things

We stayed for four nights, so had plenty of time to evaluate the facilities. While clean, the room is probably the smallest I've ever stayed in and it was difficult for two people to occupy space at the same time. Some staff members were able to recommend places for dinner, others suggested we walk around the corner and see what was available. The hotel is close to Leidseplein, which is a major tourist hub, but not close enough that the crowds and noise are a problem. Oh, and if you order anything from the bar, you will find there is a 50% "service charge." So spend wisely.

True European Hotel

It took us a while to find our hotel. We checked our bags and explored the city. When we got back, room was ready, gentleman at the desk was a little snooty. Room was small - two twin beds and a tiny bathroom. The shower was tiny - my (new) husband is a big guy - if he turned around the wrong way, he hit the faucet with his hip and the hot water was scalding in a second. Wasn't much room, but it was clean and comfortable. When we left later than night, the girl at the front desk was much nicer and gave us some great city info and maps. Close to Leidesplein and the Canal Tour.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Leidesplein was only a block or two away. VondelPark was close too. You could walk to Dam Square or the Red Light District, but the trams and buses were much easier. Tram stopped right outside the hotel.

Clean budget hotel

This hotel is just fine if you don't need any extra frills and are looking for a decent budget hotel. My room (single compact) was clean and had all the necessary amenities. Phone, hair dryer, flat screen TV. The room was well cleaned every day. The location is very good as many of the tourist attractions are within walking distance. The front desk staff not very friendly but will give needed info when asked. There is a continental breakfast available for 9.5 euros but seemed overpriced compared to what is available nearby in more charming surroundings.

Great location

The location was terrific. It is on the outskirts of the center so there was minimal noise in the night. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Great value for the money! The location is very close to the Leidseplein which gives you access to transportation, dining and nightlife.

Great Location ok stay

The hotel is in a great location close to many attractions in Amsterdam, even though the rooms are small as in most European hotels the location more than makes up for it. The room was decent a little worn with stains on carpet but not bad. There is free wi/fi in the lobby of the hotel but if you require internet in your room then you pay a steep daily rate. Breakfast at the hotel is also about 15 Euro's for muffins, bread, cheese & juices, you are better off going to the many near by cafe's and grabbing a bite for half the price and better food. The only deal breaker for me was the mix up in our room, we were suppose to have a room with 2 beds and instead we had to sure one small bed for a week, the Hotel did not really seem to care about the problem and just stated they had no more rooms with 2 beds that were available. I checked everyday for 4 days but then gave up. So if you make reservation make sure you triple check and and confirm the type of room you want and number of beds. I have stayed here 3 times prior, but next time I think I will try other hotels in the area. Overall its a decent place in a great location.

Your right in the heart of the Leidseplain entertainment area. Close to Vondel park also along with other attractions.
