The reception was very accommodating to expand us into a larger room at the last moment. Location is perfectly situated in the city and we had walking access to so much. The attached cafe is lovely and we look forward to a great breakfast in the morning.

The hotel itself is situated in a good location and is very pleasant inside and rooms very comfortable. As for the hotel staff they are rude, unhelpful and they were the ones that spoilt our holiday. After hours of travelling and long delays we finally arrived at the hotel which we had booked months in advance. We arrived and were...

We are currently staying here on a short break and are really enjoying our stay. Staff are very friendly and always smiling, willing to assist without a seconded thought if needed. Our room. Is on the 3rd floor overlooking the fountains and although roadworks are outside, you cannot hear them. The room is probably slightly smaller than most hotels of...

We stayed here for 3 nights and have enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from in the area. The tram stop is 2 mins away and takes you directly to Central Station. It's a 10-15 minute walk to Dam Square. We only had one complaint which was dealt...

This hotel was fantastic which made this trip easily one of the best we've had yet. Staff were friendly and helpful, our room was spacious and clean and the location was perfect. We didn't book breakfast because from past experience when in Europe there is always a million places close by to have something which there was.

The breakfast is excellent and the Art Deco of the restaurant quite beautiful. Most important to me is the location. Its an extremely...

Stayed at the Hampshire Hotel for 2 days 4th Feb 2017, the hotel itself is really pretty and situated at the edge of one of the many waterways. Its very central to the theaters, food, cafe and bars, only a 15 min walk to the Heineken and Rijks museums just to give you a sense of the location, it took...

We had junior suite, friends we travelled with booked standard rooms. One room decent size, other room TINY! Bar attached to the hotel had good write ups however, I personally found it...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and review posting. Our apologies for getting the impression that our bar team has no communication skills. As you must have noticed during that evening, a large group of Irish guests had a very jolly and festive interaction with the bar staff. This resulted in a less formal approach. We can understand that,...
