Reviewed October 2, 2012

Stayed there for three nights. Great location if it's not your first time in Amsterdam - sights.
Very nice breakfast and helpful staff.
Beautiful view and surroundings off the park.

Must have free wi-fi in the rooms.

This hotel had a great location with a team stop right out front. The staff were very helpful. Unfortunately the doors all seem to stick to people are required to slam them closed. This combined with the thin walls created a rough nights sleep.

When in Amsterdam I usually have business in the Science Park and the NH Tropen is one of the few hotels approximately in that direction. As many reviewers noted, the location is somewhat less convenient relative to city centre attractions (even though there is a tram stop right in front of the hotel). Several decent restaurants (and a very good one - see my review of de Kas) are close by.

The building wins no beauty contest, but this is less bothersome once inside your room. At my most recent visit I had an 8F room with a pretty view. Interior is NH standard furniture, slightly worn out, but not too bad. The toilet is tiny, but separate from the shower which can be a good thing.

The size and price of the rooms have to be related to Amsterdam standards which tend to beat even Paris with respect to tinyness and priceyness. I paid 110 Euro per night including breakfast which must be considered good value in AMS. Hotel prices in AMS vary greatly depending on the season and large events. I would also recommend to book directly via NH's website as it tends to be the cheaper than the search engines.

I could not confirm any of the irregularities with respect to booking and payment reported by others. The staff was polite and professional. I had forgotten toothpaste and was given a complimentary toothbrush set without fuss.

Summary: this is hardly a hotel for your honeymoon, but if the location is right for you, then it can provide good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor - they have good views. Rooms facing East are very bright and sun...

This is the second time we stay in this hotel, and we really like it. Granted the bath and toilet are VERY small and the tv could with an upgrade, but the bed is huge and the view fabulous. It is walking distance to the centre of town but if you do not fancy walking you can take the tram right outside the hotel. The area is fantastic, with loads of cafes, restos and shops.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up, if you stay on the 6th floor or higher with a view to the park, you cannot g...

Right, the building itself is quite old and it is a converted students residence to a hotel
I guess it wasn't all that popular as a student residence why should it be as a hotel.
The rooms feel cramped and the bathrooms could do a nice little renovation.
The location is far away from everything that makes sense (aka civilisation)

I dont recommend this stays if you are on honeymoon, the bed will drifted far away at night and get backaches and headaches as well. And not in town not even near to city centre. Infront of tram station 15€ per ride from city to hotel by taxi. The breakfast yucks!! Bread cheese eggs and hot milk really not a suitable place for amsterdam. Cheer
