We wanted a reasonably priced hotel to use as a base to explore the wonderful city of Amsterdam and selected the Hotel Tropen based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. The Hotel is not the best looking place I have ever stayed but this should not deter you. Located on the Number 9 tram route with a stop literally outside the front door it is a perfect place to access all areas of Amsterdam without the inflated prices inside the ring. In the immediate area around the hotel there is a lovely park, shops, including a supermarket across the road and a brilliant pub directly on the other side of the road selling a wide range of draught beers and excellent food too.
The hotel is deserving of its three stars; helpful staff, all the usual facilities including a bar and a restaurant (although I can't comment on either as we decided to eat and drink out as it was cheaper), internet in the lobby and wireless in the rooms.
Our room was reasonably spacious with an excellent shower and dressing area and a separate loo. The beds were comfortable although the pillows were a little small. We were on the seventh floor and had a great view over the city. The rooms were quiet and well ventilated.
We didn't intend the spend too much time int he hotel and so the usual frills that make a hotel more than just a room and bed for the night didn't matter. All in all, a good place to explore the city.
