Hampshire Hotel Beethoven3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Staff were friendly and helpful all the way through our stay. The quite new restaurant was adequate to our needs with mid-range food and prices. The hotel itself is quite tired and needing significant renovation. The plumbing in our room was terrible in both the sink (plug did not work) and shower (would not drain). We were extremely happy to be in Amsterdam which is a wonderful city so we tended to be quite forgiving of the hotel. The real litmus test though is whether you’d stay somewhere again and the answer is absolutely NO. While there is a tram stop just outside, the hotel is far too out of the way for there to be any forgiving of its issues. Ultimately - stay there only if you have a spectacular price.
I've stayed here a couple of times now and the last one sealed it for me I'm afraid. Basic room despite the price, poor and very dated décor and just the right side of clean/tidy Ok so there's a coffee machine in the room, but I was blatantly refused a large coffee cup at both the bar and reception, in such a way I was made to feel like a thief who wasn't going to return it when I left.. Really for a cup!! On two of my three days I stepped into the bathroom to find it awash with water but with no apparent reason why... so it a case of mopping up... but on the second day noticed the tap itself was leaking... I informed reception of my displeasure but was not offered anything in way of a gesture of good will ... although she did apologise.. There is much better value for money in the area and originally I was considering staying here again but sorry... no!!
Not close to centre but there is tram stop infront of the hotel. Number 5 and 24 could be used to reach the centre. Lots of bakery around the hotel. Clean and Nice rooms.. Toilets not bad. Can be atay as a couple
I don't even know where to begin, we arrived at the hotel was in a lovely area close to trams.. etc. However after checking into our room that changed everything, it had a noticeably mouldy smell. The room was just a mess marks all over the wall the bed was filthy, there was water stains everywhere. It was a disaster so I went to complain to reception because it was not what we saw in the pictures. They offered us another room after checking that out it was just as bad. They promised us a upgrade to a deluxe room the following morning. So we bit the bullet stayed there that night. I have never had a worse sleep in my life. It was so loud we could hear everything that was going on in the hotel and outside it actually felt like we were in a brothel... We didn't feel safe at all it was a nightmare. We had terrible headaches from this smell and fell ill the next few days?? We couldn't wait to get out of there. I didn't want a upgrade after that I just wanted out it was disgusting. We stayed the rest of our 4 nights in the mercure hotel and absolutely love it. My suggestion is don't look twice save your money.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel - it meets our needs: moderately priced, clean, comfortable room, comfortable bed, friendly service. The location is great - short train & tram trip to and from Schipol Airport; the tram stop in front of the hotel makes access to museum district (5 minutes) and the heart of Amsterdam (10 minutes) very easy. Nice restaurant connected to hotel and variety of restaurants nearby. The only issue we had is it was difficult to adjust water temperature in the shower - hot water is very hot. We would definitely stay here again.
We stayed at this hotel during a 3 day visit to Amsterdam in September 2017. The hotel is well outside of the central district but is located right on a tram route that will take you to the central sights in 10 - 15 minutes. The staff was excellent, helping us with reservations and tram tickets. The restaurant is simple but the food was very good. The rooms, however are in need of some work as they are outdated and in need of refurbishment. The sound from the street is the same with the window open and closed even on the third floor. Fortunately the tram services end at midnight. There are a few nice restaurants and stores nearby.
The hotel is basic but clean. There is a restaurant downstairs serving food and drinks. I recommend the bakery across the road which does amazing pastries. There is a tram stop outside the hotel which gives direct access to everything. The hotel is within walking distance of 'Amsterdam' sign. Shops and restaurants are on the same street.
The hotel was nice but a bit small.. the best part was that it had trams stops just under the hotel. The staff at the front desk was veey helpful and nice. They were very sweet. At nights they lock the door for safety. But you can just knock and get it.
The girls at the front desk were friendly and the lobby was "cute". But too many things about the room were dirty and worn out: from the filthy, stained undersheets and mattress to the carpet which was badly stained and soiled to the lights that were non-functioning, to the bathmat, sodden with hair, old and stuck to the bottom of the wardrobe, to the balcony which remained with cigarette butts and nut shells from some previous guest. The management team is unhelpful & unprofessional, replying that our complaints were about "inconvenience", while in both verbal and written complaints we addressed the concerns as unsafe and unhygienic. Check out the room before you check in.
We stayed here for 3 nights, and found the area to be quiet and beautiful with parks and canals close by. The location is convenient with a tram stop right in front of the hotel. The hotel itself has a bright and fresh lobby and restaurant. The rooms are spacious and clean, although they could do with an update, and a small fridge in the room would be appreciated. The staff at the front desk are helpful and efficient. They go out of their way to assist you. The breakfast buffet has a good selection and is tasty. All in all a very pleasant stay that I am happy to recommend to others.
