              Very comfortable bed. Room was quiet, cosy and the heating worked well. Hotel is right near a tram stop and only a short walk into the centre of Amsterdam. Staff were efficient and friendly.

              Bathroom was tiny. More like a shower room than a bathroom. Would expect more space for the price.

              • Average rating
            • Couple

              Great location, friendly staff, everything we needed. Room was a decent size and we had a view of the small park. Bathroom was small but then you don't really need anything bigger unless you want a bath. Plenty around the area in regards to attractions, supermarket, cafes and then just short walks to get around the city. We walked everywhere. We had a great stay here!

              Can be a bit loud with hall way noise but it never bothered us really. Free wireless is available in the reception area only. Which worked out fine for us.

              I found the staff at the hotel to be most helpful and the rooms were comfortable although a little expensive.

              Coming from the UK I found the bathroom to be extremley small however it had everything that I required and the shower was lovely.

              Staff were friendly and helpful when asking for directions.

              Use Booked.net a lot but have to say that this hotel was the most disappointing. Upon arrival, was informed that my credit card, which was used to secure booking, wasn`t valid. Upon arrival in uk, my bank informed me that the hotel had attempted to withdraw 4 different amounts from this card, all of completely different amounts to daily rates, and all declined! The rooms were adaequate but had poor sound proofing. Could hear noises from adjacent rooms and from above. Walls and floors appeared thin. The en-suite was particularly small especially the toilet, so, like me, you are over 6 feet tall, you will struggle to use facilities. Be prepared to walk as hotel is easily 15minutes from Rembrandt Square. Thought the hotel was grossly overpriced given the negative points above.

              Very modern and clean room, staff was very helpful, free wi-fi in the lobby. Fantastic. Would absolutely recommend this hotel for everyone.

              Since our room was next to a park, sometimes we can smell cigarette fumes through the window.

              The location of the hotel was definitely its best feature. The room in itself was small and the TV only had german/Dutch instructions so i almost ended up getting the Pay-per view option. The hotel was as expected, Fine hotel.

              The size of the room was relatively small. But so it is almost everywhere in the 'Dam. No real issues, really.

              The Hampshire Eden Lancaster Hotel Amsterdam is a very pleasant place to stay. The room was clean, fresh, sheets and towels were changed everyday. The bathroom was spacious and so was the room. The design of the room was simple yet urban and modern, sleek and comfortable with a lot of light thanks to the wide window. The staff was always friendly and helped us throughout our trip. The lobby area is nice. Location- wise, the hotel is not directly next to any major place but at a very quick walking distance. The good thing about it is that the neighborhood is quiet and in less than 2 mins you can reach the best places in the city. A very good hotel that we recommend.

              It gets a little chilly in the rooms at night. Is a little far from some places

              Very good staff at the reception.

              Too noisy: I was distuberd by the noise from the other rooms as well as from the street (a tram line is next to the hotel). There was no warm water in the shower on the last day of my stay (oddly there was warm water in the tap at the same time).

              The room was clean and comfortable and well decorated. Tea & coffee in room.

              Breakfast extra at 15 euro each extra - we didn't do it. bakers round corner does fresh croissants and Orange juice for 2 for 4 euros! But at least we had the choice not to have breakfast included so not much of a complaint really.

              I didn't like that i couldn't open the window. Also, my room was right beneath the reception and next to the kitchen so it was always very noisy wich made sleeping quite hard.

              room is quite pretty, location of hotel is silient place and easy to go to city center with tram. Also walking around the hotel is enjoyable. There is few cafe and pubs around hotel. we had a breakfast and drink some of them.

              room is pretty but bed is not comfortable, steely parts of bed hurts my back side.

              Clean large rooms

              The hotel asked for a 50 euro deposit, though the room price was paid fully on check in! and the 50 euro deposit was not mentioned anywhere on the booking conditions
