Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

The room had very old carpets with stains all over, dirty curtains and a dirty couch, and the heater was falling off the wall. The extractor fan in the bathroom didn't work. The esspresso machine looked as though it has never had a wash. The towels were old and ragged - the kind

very disappointed - reception is down a flight of stairs, not easy with a heavy suitcase. the toilet floor in this area needed a clean, the lift is old, directions to my room were ridiculous, they pointed to a staircase rather than in the direction of the room, had to return to

I booked this hotel for two single rooms for 5 nights. The location is good. There are plenty of cafe and bars nearby and it is a decent walk to the centre. It is quiet. At night nothing disturbs your sleep. Our roomywere both single rooms. Not the small single. They were good

We are a group of 10 who visit Amsterdam and Prinsengracht Hotel. The hotel is in great location, near most attractions (or a metro). Nice, service-minded staff and tasty breakfast. The cleaning is perceived to be somewhat variable due to carpet on the floors and wallpaper that

We recently spent four nights at the Prinsengracht (formerly named Hampshire) Hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. We liked it on previous visits; now it is even better. Immaculately clean and well maintained, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfasts (and occasional

Well there's near and there's near! It is certainly a little further around the main canal ring than I have been used to but Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein and nightclubs are all walkable. If your idea of nightlife is the Red Light district it's a tram ride.

Do you have to leave a room deposit upon check in? If so... how much?
Hi David Your question has been referred to me. I may have paid the full bill on arrival (my choice) or on departure I can't remember but I certainly don't recall paying a deposit. It may be that because I booked through a certain booking website it wasn't necessary as they can charge the full amount if you don't cancel early enough or if you are a no show so a deposit per se did not arise Sorry I can't be more helpful Roger S

Alternatively take the train from the Airport to Amsterdam Central Station (Centraal). Trains leave from platform 1 and 2 in the main arrival plaza at the airport and reach Amsterdam Central within 15 minutes. The service runs day and night every day of the week. During the busy hours from 6am to 1am it runs every 10 to 15 minutes. During the deep night from 1am to 6am it runs once per hour on the hour. One ticket costs €9,50 and is best bought online in English via the Amsterdam airport train tickets webpage. The hotel can be reached from two different tram routes from tram stops immediately across the road from the station. The hotel lies about half way between the two routes a couple of hundred yards walk from the tram stop. EITHER: Take a No 4 tram to Prinsengracht (6th stop). Turn right on the right hand side side of the canal and walk for 220 yds to reach the hotel. ALTERNATIVELY: Take the No 16, 25 or 24 tram, from the Central Station to the 5th stop at Keizersgracht. From the tram stop walk straight ahead and then turn left on to Prinsengracht. From that point it is again about 220 yards to the hotel. Trams run very frequently whichever route you take.
