Are you ready for Amsterdam? At Hampshire Hotel - Rembrandt Square on the famous Rembrandtplein, everything Amsterdam has to offer is on your doorstep. This Hotel is the ideal starting point for a day visiting museums (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Hermitage), wandering over Waterlooplein, cycling through the seventeenth century city centre, sailing through the canals, sitting at one of the pavement cafes on Rembrandtplein and visiting trendy local bars and clubs.
"Needs change of management "
Undoubtedly this is a well placed hotel for exploring Amsterdam. But stay somewhere else. Multitude of issues - two single beds jammed together isn't a king size bed. It's just uncomfortable. - no hot water when I wanted a shower at 11pm. - waited 5 minutes at reception before anyone appeared with no obvious means of alerting staff to the fact that I'd arrived. - breakfast was fine but not remotely good value - go out for breakfast and don't pay for it when you arrive - free wifi was free for a reason - either slow or non existent - no complimentary bottle of water in the room (though this is a pet peeve of mine rather than a sign of a bad hotel) All this would be fine if it was a very cheap hotel but it isn't.
"3 night stay - very disappointing "
Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for three nights in July. The lobby of the hotel is very nice and the staff who greeted us were lovely. As we couldn't check in until 3 and we arrived there early, we were able to leave our luggage and they held it for us until check in. We got up to our room and I was very unimpressed. The room was dark and dingy, it was clean but there was a tiny window so hardly any light. The room was boiling hot and the aircon was absolutely rubbish, we could turn it on but it didn't work. The pillows on the bed were like pillows you would have on a sofa, they were square not rectangular and there were no other pillows in the room! It was really hard to sleep. The bed was ok, it wasn't as uncomfortable as not having proper pillows. The show and bathroom was ok. I was in the shower and the bath was filling up, but the plug had been opened so I wasn't sure why it was filling up. I went to pull the plug and it came out with loads of gunk and disgusting stuff. Which made me feel sick quite frankly. The room wasn't cleaned by the cleaners at all, when we initially arrived it was clean but the duration of our stay, our bed was made and our towels replaced but the bathroom and bedroom wasn't touched at all. It's pretty central in Amsterdam which was the upside to all of this. Wouldn't stay here again when coming back to Amsterdam, I was exhausted coming home as the heat just wouldn't allow me to sleep! For the money you pay here you can definitely find a better hotel.
"Good hospitality clean rooms"
I stayed at Hotel Hampshire for 5nights. The location is superb! It's close to all the main attractions and the tram stops. The room size are decent sized, and clean. The breakfast was good although the spread was limited. Lots of eating options around the place, and Michelin star restaurant attached to the hotel. The housekeeping was great. The staff was courteous. All in all a pleasant stay and would recommend it to fellow travelers.
"Comfortable Stay, Good Location"
Our trip was a combination of business and leisure. Our booking was made and paid for by a 3rd party. When we arrived we were speedily helped; however, since check-in is only at 15:00 we had to leave our luggage in their luggage storage. Upon our return we were checked in and directed to our room. The room itself was standard, smallish, but very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and practical; however, using it leaves nothing to the imagination. As a married couple, we found it hilarious, but it might be a bit awkward if you're sharing the room with a business colleague since there is a glass panel (strategically sandblasted, though) between the beds and the shower, and the shower and the toilet; with the effect being you can see the other person's bathroom business. Breakfast was also included in our rate. IT was standard but delicious and fresh. Prospective guests can look forward to a cold selection of food such as ham, sliced deli chicken, salami and smoked salmon; a selection of breads including croissants; a warm selection of eggs, bacon, sausages and mushrooms; and finally a cereals and yogurt section with fresh fruits and juices. The hotel's location is fantastic. Conveniently situated next to the Amstel river and about 100 metres from Rembrandt Square from where you can easily catch a tram to Amsterdam Central Station or other parts of the city. In the opposite direction, crossing the Amstel River is the Waterloop Square Metro Station for additional public transport. Museums close by include Rembrandt House, the Hermitage Musuem, the Willet-Holthuysen Museum, the Jewish historical quarter, amongst others., as well as the Hortus Botannicus Botanical Gardens. Would have to agree with a previous review though, the only negative for us was that there didn't seem to be a set schedule for room service. This could possibly be improved. Would definitely recommend if you want to be in the thick of all the action in Amsterdam
"Awful amenities in the overall"
The room I got was okay, not big, but enough for staying solo. The bed is very comfortable - but this is the only amenity that's good. The air conditioning system is weak, the wardrobe is small and the bedside table is filled with phone and lamps. The bathroom is okay, except for the shower which seems complicated. Their service is difficult to deal with, there's no time pattern for the room cleaning to happen, which is always cleaning your towel even though you didn't want to. The reservation was paid by a 3rd party, so I can't tell if the price is worth what you get.
