“Clean, quiet, affordable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

There is no need to worry, there's everything you need. Also the tram to the centre is right there.
There are renovations but they begin to work after 8. The staff cleans all traces of dust.
The rooms are comfortable and the scenery that you see out of the windows is very relaxing, even in a rainy day.
It is very convenient for the quality of services.

I have travelled to this hotel before and had an amazing time. This visit was even better. The staff are so helpful, the decor is beautiful, the breakfast is excellent and the birthday hamper I had personally delivered to my door was the icing on top. I would recommend this hotel to absolutely anyone as it is in a beautiful prime location and right outside the tramstop. One of the best European hotels I've visited yet.

We had a great stay in NH Tropen. Everything was perfect, starting from the Hotel staff, Marielle, Dionne and the rest of the reception team and restaurant. The location is very good, nice and quite area just 5 minutes by bike to city centre (bikes can be rent at the reception and is the best option!). The room had an amazing views of the park and it has everything you may need (free wifi, amenities, king size bed, bright...) I'd repeat again, we enjoyed a lot!! Thank you to all NH Tropen team!

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a fifth floor plus if you want to enjoy a view over the city. Ask for another pillow too.

Location is a bit out, but pleasant walk to centre, and tram 9 stops outside the hotel
Hotel staff were all young, very nice guys n gals, always smiling and polite
Hotel room on top floors with park view is great!! Our room was 806
Price works out well for the location and value of the room
The rooms are decent sized, basic amenities, plenty of towels included. Cripsy white linen bedsheets..Be aware there is no fridge!
My 2 issues: the bathroom ( mouldy... however they are refurbing them at the moment, so hopefully it will change) and the dust on the heater and the ventillation unit. Deep cleaning is overdue!! Otherwise we had a great couple of nights sleep in the cozy, quiet room.

We won this hotel in a blind, name-your-price bid and we were pleased. We loved the view from the top floor--the pretty park by day and city lights at night. The room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable. As a dust mite allergy sufferer, I appreciated the hardwood floors. Although the hotel was undergoing renovations, we were not disturbed by the process; we were out all day exploring Amsterdam! Just a short, safe walk away from the hotel and we had excellent choices of cafes, restaurants, takeaways, and grocers. The tram stopped directly in front of the hotel; our purchase of unlimited GVB tickets allowed us to hop on and hop off around Amsterdam all day. The absolute best part of our stay was the welcome and treatment we received. The staff was professional, yet warm and friendly. We would definitely choose another stay at the hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor!

I chose to stay in this hotel on my trip back as I found both the rate and location worth trying. It was not a bad decision and my rating largely is due to what could, in my view, be taken care of quite easily.
