Nice location, nice staff, beautiful hotel. Very centrally located to the museums and the waterfront. Was specifically impressed with the staff's cleanliness and attention to detail. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in central Amsterdam.

Amsterdam is a beautiful city with flowing canals, giving it the nickname "Venice of the North." It is also the capital city of the Netherlands and yet, not the center of government. As such, Amsterdam is rather a center of arts and culture. There are nearly 400 hotels in Amsterdam, and the guests at Amsterdam hotels may choose from inexpensive small inns to full service, upscale hotels like the Toren or the impressive Banks Mansion.
The largest convention center in the Netherlands is the Amsterdam RAI Convention Center. It can host international trade fairs, expos, and shows like the Shrek Musical and the HET Instruments trade show.
Any type of cuisine in the world can be found in Amsterdam. If, hotels Amsterdam guests would like to sample Dutch cuisine, visit the Gartine that has been featured in major Dutch publications.
The Anne Frank House is a must-see in Amsterdam. Visitors can see where she lived and learn the tragic history of the Frank family and World War II. Visitors also enjoy the local Van Gogh Museum, which features the world's largest Van Gogh collection.
Amsterdam is home to a number of shops, from open-air markets to high-end fashion boutiques. The Waterlooplein Market, near the Amstel River, has over 300 distinct stalls and sells all types of merchandise.
Sports are beloved in Amsterdam and ice hockey is huge. The Amstel Tijgers are the professional ice hockey team that plays at the Jaap Eden baan. The ArenA in Bijlmermeer hosts the Ajax soccer team.
Great experience for overnight stay to catch an early morning flight out of Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. Located in a business park so not near shopping or restaurants but has good restaurant, bar, room service. Free shuttle to airport (15 minutes away) with courteous and friendly driver. Will reserve a shuttle seat for you if you need to leave during a peak usage time. Quiet.
We had a hard time finding a room for a family of five, but the Hampton in Amsterdam was one of the few hotels that offered a large room with two queen beds and a sofa bed. The room was very clean with a nice view of the courtyard at the front of the hotel. The bathroom was a standard size but it was very bright and the water pressure for the shower was perfect. The free buffet style breakfast included eggs, sausage, bacon, made to order waffles, breads, cheeses, cold cuts, fruit and pastries. Coffee, milk and juice is also included. The large comfortable area for eating breakfast is very busy in the morning. In the room you find a small safe, hair dryer, iron and ironing board and a flat screen TV with many international channels.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. They had a nice dinner available as well and the beer was nice and cold. The rooms are small but you have everything you need and I thought the technology was great.
Excellent location near city center and on canal. Old fashioned decorations and very European flavor. Clean, excellent staff and service levels. Feel like going back in time 50 years as soon as walk in front door..
