Dining

Restaurant & Bar
Two of the most special places to "wine & dine" in Amsterdam are located in the Hampshire Hotel - Amsterdam American. Our Caf Americain is a sparkling "hot spot" for local Amsterdam people, writers and artists: who come along for a bite, a drink, or just for reading the newspaper at the reading table. Do you fancy meeting someone famous? Both national and international movie stars have been spotted in our renown Bar Americain from time to time. Bar Americain has recently been restyled and therefore is even more popular than before amongst locals. It is also still the "hot spot" for national and international movie stars. An ideal place for VIP-spotting while drinking an award winning cocktail. During summertime the terrace offers a great opportunity to watch people.
Cafe Americain
Wine and dine among the local Amsterdam people, artists and actors. The ambiance in the dazzling Cafe Americain is dynamic and most of all cosy. It has been called Amsterdam's living room by many and that is exactly how it feels. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, just a coffee or a pleasant drink. At the Cafe Americain or on the amazing terrace during the summer time, you will always feel comfortable.
Terrace
During the summertime and when the sun is shining, in front of the hotel the terrace is openend. Were you can enjoy a drink, lunch or dinner while watching the fountain and the sun.

Sick and very well taken care of

It was my second time staying at this hotel and I'm glad I went back. I had enteritis on one day during the trip, I was feeling awful and weather outside horrible. The hotel duty manager Saiza was very caring, she helped arrange for a doctor visit to the room, the medicine to be picked up at the pharmacy, and sent me a nice pumpkin soup and fruits. The hotel staff totally made me feel at home. I have every reason to go back again in the future.

Perfect location in the heart of Amsterdam.The staff was a bit chilly in communication. The hotel is not new. But the view from the windows of the fountains is perfect!

Go here and no further

Fantastic location, in the heart of town. Staff very helpful, knowledgeble, perfect command of English. Rooms are fantastic (ask for canal view). Mezanine rooms are bigger but lack the nice varandah of other floors. Don't forget to dine at least once in the hotel restaurant. Food is good, price is right and the beauty of the restaurant is a must see. On the reception desk, Ms. Pavan Singh is a great asset for the hotel - always available, always with a smile

Ideal getaway

I spent four nights in Amsterdam at this hotel. It couldn't have been better situated to visit most of the attractions and right opposite the bus stop to the airport! Relaxing atmosphere in a period building which must hold the most interesting restaurant in the City. Wonderful place to have lunch or an evening meal outside watching the fountain and people going by. Staff helpful, kind and have good customer service skills. My room at the side of the hotel was spaceous, clean and comfortable although I did struggle to get the air conditioning to work. As my flight back to England was later in the day I was offered the use of a room to shower and change for the onward journey at no extra charge. I would certainly recommend the hotel to others and would stay there again on my return to Amsterdam.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a look inside the Resistance Museum. It is well worth the eight Euros entrance fee. Full of memories and stories from the German invasion during the war. Well organised, arranged and displayed.

This hotel has pluses and minuses.

This hotel has pluses and minuses. The biggest plus is the location on Liedesplain. The frequent buses (370 and 197) from Schipol stop outside. Liedesplain is, perhaps, the most vibrant and lively part of Amsterdam with bars, street art and restaurants. It is the intersection of bus and tram routes giving access to the rest of Amsterdam. The major museums, tourist attractions, the town centre, Jordaan and de Pijp are nearby. Clearly the minus in this case is the noise at night. The hotel front desk staff were pleasant and our room was good, well furnished and clean. A big minus was the service in the restaurant was very slow and idiosyncratic. The food, given the hotel standard, just ordinary and pricey. However the 1900/art deco room was worth a visit on its own. The biggest minus given the high room price and hotel star rating, was that breakfast was not included (20 Euros extra) and this really rankled.
