Hampshire Hotel Beethoven3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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 The rooms, however are in need of some work as they are outdated and in need of refurbishment.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.
The Hampshire Hotel - Beethoven is value for money completely. For a 3-star accommodation, the service is wonderful. The breakfast buffet, which was included in the room rent, was a grand spread. Usually stocking up well during breakfast got me through the whole day - even though I walked around the city quite a bit. The staff is very helpful and are always ready to give you tips to make your way around the city a little easier, no that it's tough anyway. The best part for me was that the tram station is literally a stone's throw from the Hotel and there are other eateries nearby apart from the hotel's own brasserie.
I can't rate the staff in this hotel more highly, so helpful and friendly, and even printed off my museum tickets for me at front desk!! They helped me with public transport and getting around Amsterdam. The hotel itself however is very old dated, the room itself was very basic. Also, my room was facing the street and as the windows was very thin it was very loud all through the night. Also the walls and floors are very thin so you don't get a good night's sleep as its very loud.
This is a lovely hotel - a little out of town, but benefitting from a very close tram stop. A number of shops and restaurants are very close. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and spacious rooms. Food and drink available in the hotel bar/restaurant. Very good quality. Perfect for a short break in Amsterdam. With a short walk (or tram ride) it is easy to access Museumplein.
the young woman at the desk on our first night gave us some wonderful tips about places to explore beyond the centrum. the hotel is in a lovely neighborhood for walking around. tram stops almost at the front door, but we could also walk to the museum quarter in 15-20 minutes. the hotel restaurant ("brooks") quite nice.
