I'm a native Londoner. I went to Amsterdam for the first time in June '13 to celebrate my birthday and the reuniting of my partner and I after 4 months apart.
I, like some others that have posted, purchased my stay in NH Tropen via a Lastminute package.
I read some reviews once I had booked and became a bit nervous as some were stating that the service was terrible, the staff unhelpful and the rooms unclean etc.
Upon arrival I realised how excellent the location was, the tram link was outside the hotel and it took 10 minutes to get to Centraal. The lady I encountered at the desk was obliging, patient and helpful with all my queries regarding check-in, luggage storage and local info. They then accommodated an early check-in for me at 10am as they had a readily prepared room. I was MOST pleased.
The receptionist escorted my partner and I to our room which was a perfect size for our short stay, CLEAN with a big window letting in lots of natural light. The towels were clean as were the bed linens which was the main thing for me! The wifi connection as strong and didn't fail me as I also had to touch base with work.
Considering I had paid £130 for a 2 night package including a return flight and taxes I got more than what I had paid for.
Granted the architect didn't have the keenest eye, the outside of the building is very art deco (not a personal fan) but one can still appreciate it. Especially in amongst all the luscious green trees surrounding it despite being in a city (greenery is refreshing as I live in central London).
The following morning we took advantage of their breakfast buffet, they had everything one could possibly want for breakfast, then went out to explore Amsterdam on a full stomach.
After reaching back to the hotel very late and realising most food places close early, my partner and I were ravenous so we hit Just-Eat website. Unfortunately, I do not speak or understand the language which made ordering very difficult and as a result a bag of frozen food was delivered! On a whim I went down to reception, the young man that was on night duty just about managed to hold back his giggles after informing him of my mistake and offered to cook our food! Keeping in mind this was around 3am. What a sweet-heart! I was absolutely over the moon and so grateful!
Check-out was a breeze and the lady wished us well on our journey.
I would like to thank all the staff for making our stay a very pleasant one.
I will stay again in a heartbeat!!
