Me and my boyfriend stayed at the NH Tropen for 3 nights. It is in a fantastic location, situated right next to the beautiful and idyllic Oosterpark and various pubs/cafes in the area. The Roots Festival took place while we were staying there and we went on the last day and had a blast.
The no.9 tram takes you straight to the hotel and the journey time is only 8 minutes so do not take any notice of when other reviewers moan about it being right outside the centre of everything, the journey is so straightforward . This is my 6th time to Amsterdam and staying at the Tropen made this trip even more memorable.
We ate out for the duration of our stay so I cannot comment on what the food tasted like in the hotel. I do know they charge €19 for breakfast which is a bit pricey. The bars on the main strip were pretty expensive too, I paid €7.50 for a Corona beer, that was from Teasers bar. If you look around you would most likely find it cheaper. On the last night we found a lovely Indian restaurant called Memories of India. The food was to die for and the service was excellent.
Back to the Tropen, on arrival the receptionist was very pleasant and helpful although I did have to pay €8 City Tax. The room was lovely and as I had requested in advance we got a comfy double bed rather than twin beds and a beautiful view oveooking Oosterpark. The shower was very powerful, I could have stayed underneath it all day!
For anyone wishing to stay here I would definitely say go for it. To me it is in a brilliant location, the supermarket is across the road and there was a hair and beauty shop which specialised in Afro-Carribean products which was a godsend as most of my toiletries were confiscated at the airport!!
We would without a doubt stay at the Tropen again. I love Amsterdam :)
