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.
"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.
"Bad service - what a shame!"
We where not too happy with the way we were treated at the Hampshire Hotel , Rembrandt Square. -We were told we could pay by arrivel - they anyhow draw the fee from my credit card in advance. -We were told, that this request could be cancelled without a fee. The confirmation said otherwise - full payment if cancelled. -We requested early check-in and were told, that usually was possible - it wasn´t for us. -It is situated right in the centre, which is great, but there is a lot of noise. -The room was filthy when we got there and wasn´t cleaned the next day till after 4.00 in the afternoon. Staff was not being very friendly either, except from the concierge. Trying something else the next time!
"Solid 4 Stars"
Amsterdam is an expensive city, but this hotel was a good value for what you get. The rooms were clean and seemed large for Europe. We had a king bed which was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size as well. Be aware (to my fellow American travelers in particular) that the doors to the bathroom are frosted glass and do not provide much privacy at all!! The location was great - there were lots of restaurants and bars in the area. Amsterdam is very walkable so we did not use public transportation, but there is a team nearby if needed. Close proximity to Waterlooplein (market) and Dam Square. Our favorite part of this hotel was the breakfast!!! It was absolutely delicious! There were many different types of bread as well as fresh meat and cheese, berries, cereal/granola, etc. As a gluten-free traveler, I ate very well!!
