It is a full-service hotel. My husband and I stayed in a beautifully renovated room with a queen size bed. We were with a group of teachers on a familiarization tour. They have reliable free wi-fi and very nice meeting rooms. They also have a breakfast buffet with fresh breads, cheeses, and fruit daily as well as a hot breakfast...

The hotel from outside and from it's position looked excellent. But inside especially in the rooms was extremely poor. Old and small beds and old decoration seemed that this hotel was never redecorated except the bath which was quite good. They charged me 3 products from the mini bar even though I used 2 of them. I've been to many...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your visit and your review posting. The automatic minibar charges any consumption directly to your account as soon as you have lifted the item. Even if it is just to inspect and is put back again. That is why it is an automatic minibar. As you have noticed, your 3rd item was not charged when...

Hampshire Hotel American was not only the best value, but also served as the perfect home base for a wonderful Amsterdam visit. We arrived early so our luggage was stored, and Concierge gave us discount vouchers for the hop-on/hop-off tram. Stop #10 is just across the bridge (5 minute walk). After check-in, we found a nicely appointed room, and during...

Location is outstanding in the city center (Leidseplein). The hotel looks great from the outside (nice fountain) and also the bar is nice. However the rooms itself are below standards of a decent hotel. Overall not worth the price in my opinion.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review posting and stay in our hotel. When the value-for-money argument is brought up, we also try to find out which establishments you compare it with. After the rejuvenation of certain rooms (your very room is amongst them) that are slightly outdated, we hope that you will retry us for a new opinion. With...

Hotel is in good location and staff friendly. but I would never stay there again. There was a mouse in my room. I was moved to a suite but it was very old and run down. Some may say charming - not me!

Really good hotel ideally situated for exploring the city. Welcome warm and friendly. Concierge very helpful. Room ideal. All necessary amenities very clean and bathroom in very good condition. Only let down were the creaky floorboards above (I know it is expected in an old building but it disturbs sleep!) and the slamming noise of the doors along the corridors....
