Hampshire Hotel Beethoven3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed at the Beethoven for a long weekend, only checked out yesterday. The rooms are basic and in need of a little care and attention but it certainly didn't put us off. The staff are very helpful and informative and the reception area and restaurant at the bottom of the hotel are very nice. Transport links to the centre via the tram are great and the area in which the hotel is was lovely. We spent some time around here as it was less busy but had a nice atmosphere. Overall a positive experience.
Yes, parts of the hotel are a little dated but the location and the excellent staff totally make up for the things it is lacking. We were checked in by Xavier. He was a fountain of information and was never too busy to answer our many questions. When he was not available, we were assisted by the able abilities of Aziz.. The restaurant staff were wonderful as well. The hotel is located on a tram lime which takes you easily to central station. We would definitely stay here again.
Visited with family for a long weekend, the Hotel looks very warm & inviting (which it is) but requires TLC in the rooms. Staff were very polite to me & family. The hotel was relatively near to the airport by traveling to Amsterdam Zuid and catching 3 stops on the Tram (Number 5) to the Hotel & the stop is just outside the hotel. Location of the hotel is also very near to a Chinese restaurant next door & a fantastic place opposite named 'Le Pain Quotidien' which I recommend for breakfast rather than the hotels!! WiFi seemed to be a little 'on & off' but overall a good stay, with a comfy & clean room but really requires some TLC!
I spend in March 3 nights in Beethoven Hotel. Checkin and welcome was very polite, however when I went to the room, they look a little bit worn out.. They are not bad, but into my opinion would deserve a small quality refresh. On the other hand, the rooms were clean. What I have to highlight, the staff was very friendly, and I finally felt like home.
We loved the area in which the hotel is. It's a very cute and safe area, super quite and 10-15 minutes far from the city center by tram. The hotel is nice with all the facilities you need. The staff was nice and friendly. We didn't had breakfast there because we found it too expensive. However there're a few nice bar close by so we didn't have any problem. We recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a cheap accommodation close by the centre.
We had a loud party of men placed next to us who shouted and intimidated us all night. First thing the next morning we went down with our bags packed. My partner was so upset she wanted to go home. The staff were hostile, acted like they didn't believe us and begrudgingly moved us to a different room. No money was deducted from our bill because the new room was supposed to be 'deluxe'. It was small and the coffee machine didn't work. We had no apology from management but the party of men were apologised to when they left. Breakfast is not included and is expensive. Please check or they will put this on your final bill without you knowing. This hotel nearly ruined our holiday. We felt we were treated worst than other guests due to being a lesbian couple but really hope this isn't the case.
This is a very, very basic hotel. Bed, bath, heat, [some] light. It's located walking distance from RAI, where I attended a show. Pleasant 1 mile walk, even in inclement weather it's tolerable, whereas a cab or driving would force you to wait in long queues the entire distance from hotel to exhibition hall. I found the front desk very knowledgeable about public transportation and swift to set up a dinner reservation or a cab. Price was much cheaper than the larger hotels near RAI, but it's also not a modern place at all.
Stayed here for a long weekend. Hotel is ok but looking tired in the bedrooms! That said the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is pretty close to the airport, one train stop to Amsterdam Zuid & then 3 stops via Tram 5. Tram stop is virtually outside hotel. As others breakfast is not included , buffet costs €16.50 per head , a la carte more. That said directly opposite is Le Pain Quotidien. Highly recommended. Getting to Dam Square , Central Station etc is really easy via Tram 5 again outside hotel. You can buy tram passes at the hotel or at major stations. We bought a 3 day pass for 3 people €51.00. hop on & off as many times as you want. The hotel is well situated with regard to restaurants a Chinese 10 metres & an Argentinian steak house one more metre! Abundance of bakery shops & coffee bars all easy walking distance. Downtown to Dam Sq 20 minutes via Tram. Hotel does have a bar & restaurant area. Wifi that worked well & if you want a peaceful location & enjoy the tram ride into town. An ok hotel.
We stayed in your hotel from Saturday the 24th of December to Wednesday the 28th and we clearly cannot say that our stay was perfect... We had a couple of problems, to begin with, we booked a double room and we ended up having a single room ! So the receptionist explained us that the hotel gave the room as the reservation was arriving but I do not understand how you can have double room available, sell it more expensive than a single one and give a single to the customer ? So we had the first night and we moved to the room 205 on the 26th which was a double. The second morning we noticed there was a smell in the room we looked around and found butter and milk opened that was left from the previous customer by the window behind the curtains ! Once again don't you have a cleaning person who is supposed to clean the rooms before selling them ??? Finally on our last night we started to hear noise by 10pm and at 12 being in bed we could hear people continusly walking around in the bedroom above which is very unpleasant as the building is not new so we could hear the floor squeak. So at 1am I took the chance to go to the reception for ask the receptionist if he could do something about this uncomfortable situation as I am sorry but when I come to a hotel it’s for sleep not to walk around… So the receptionist went to the room above and told me that the customers were seated on the floor and they would try to make less noise. Right after this we heard the clients JUMPING in the room as a « thank you for sending the receptionist but clearly we don’t care !». So I went back to the reception with my boyfriend and the receptionist said he would go back to the room above us and send the clients out as we were paying for the room and the situation was not normal and he would give us a call to our room to tell us. So then started the longest 15 minutes of our life, we have been waiting for the receptionist to call us which he never did ! So after wondering what happened to the guy we finally took the decision to call down to reception and the receptionist just said that the clients said they would calm down which they never did !! So I asked for another room and we had to pack ALL OF OUR BELONGINGS at 2 am in the morning because you are not capable of managing your own hotel !! The hotel is just dirty, it's nice to have carpet but you still need to wash it .... We paid 260€ for our stay and this is a lot of money to stay somewhere to sleep and not being able to do so. At the top of all of this, I sent many mails to the management for these problems and I received answers not solving ANYTHING. I will never come back to this hotel they ruined our stay and our Christmas.
Staff was really friendly but management was useless. Hotel too expensive for the small, basic and dump rooms. No breakfast included and you have to share iron. Forniture looked too cheap and noise from vent in the bathroom was terrible. Never again. Don't stay as it's not close to center.
