We MADE IT!! Signs began to appear for Amsterdam, so the job of navigator got easier!! At around 7pm we rolled into the outskirts of the city.Both the other girls had been to the city a few times before and were a little familier with the city layout. We found our way to near the city centre and found a hotel quickly too. No messing around!! Good …
Last day in Amsterdam. Up early to go get a warm waffle with powdered sugar on it Mmmmm then to Anne Frank's house. Rainy again this morning. Waited in line for about 40 minutes but once inside you begin in the shop and you get a little history about the Nazis, the Frank family and other situations going on at the time. Then you go up a level, …
Ready to see the city! We decided we better go ahead and see the Van Gogh museum early before the lines get too long. The weather was a bit rainy and windy that morning, so spending the morning in the museum was a brilliant idea. The museum was amazing! It was so incredible to actually see the paintings I've learned about in art class in elementary …
We arrived in Amsterdam after having an hour delay, so this put is into Amsterdam around 11pm. After getting our luggage, catching the train into town, then finding the tram to take us to our hotel we ended up at our hotel a little after midnight only to find out that they overbooked and all the rooms were full for that night. So the man at the …
Another cloudy and drizzly day and Katelyn not feeling well. Greg & Tara decided to go to the zoo while I stayed with Katelyn, but they were back in 15 minutes as it was a really expensive zoo and they didn't want to go that much and walk in the rain. Convinced Katelyn that she was okay to walk out and get some fresh air but that only lasted 5 …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampshire Hotel - Lancaster Amsterdam
We just returned from Amsterdam today and I'd better put in my review while it is still fresh, me and my wife stayed there for 4 nights, 10th-14thDec 2004.
Too Far out
This hotel was further away from the centre than I was originally led to believe. i thought the rooms were shabby, although they did seem to be clean. this hotel may suiit older guests who may not wish to be in the heart of the city. Tram service very good, and it was easy to get around the city.
Visited Amsterdam from April 29 to May 2d, 2004.
It is a very nice hotel, yes it is out of the centre but we actually liked that as it was a nice walk into the main areas or a quick tram ride in. the tram stop is right by the hotel. The breakfast was pricey and basic but with a bakers just round the corner open at 7.30 am it was perfect!!the area is served by good local places to eat and drink.
We booked this hotel to stay April 2004, But on arrival they told us they had over booked so were upgrading us to their sister hotel the Eden which was nearer to the centre. The hotel payed for our Taxi there. We were pleased about upgrade and for same price.
I have titled this review with 'i dont agree ' the reason being is that before i recenctly travelled to the Best Western Lancaster i had read the other reviews and started to get quite worried ! Although once arriving at the hotel i did have to ask myself what the fuss was about.The hotel has recently been renovaating its first two floors aand dining room and have to say that i was very impressed by the finish.Th reception area was spacious,modern and clean,the reception staff were very polite and very helpfull. Going onto our room,it was a standard size room although the only down side to it was that when you went to the toilet the door was that close you were nearly licking it! There were very few facilities there was no bar area and after breakfast time there waas no where at the hotel to get food,although the receptionist found us a tke aaway menu that was very reasonably priced.The breakfast room was light airy and funky and breaakfast was typically dutch but a nice start to the morning. Ok the hotel is not smack in the centre but its a nice walk to the market areas and the zoo is just over the road, you can get a number of trams right outside the hotel into any area and thats less than a euro. All in all i haad a very enjoyable time,being a travel agent i get to travel alot and i give clients recomendations from my own personal experience i would not hesitate recommending this hotel.
Uninspiring and isolated, though not entirely without merit
Like its sister hotel the Best Wetsern Eden, this provides pretty uninspiring and unremarkable accommodation. The rooms are just about OK, though verging on the tatty, while the communal areas are completely unmemorable. Breakfast is in a window-less bunker. Unlike the Eden, the location, while pleasant enough, is removed from the thrust and bustle of city centre A'dam. In general, not recommended, but not to be avoided either.
Very bad experience.
Don't ever stay there. Very poor quality. My room smelled, had old, uncomfortable,and worn out furniture. One bed was broken. Horrible view from the window. I could get a room like that for 30-45$ instead of paying 110$ at Best Western Lancaster.
