“Retro convenience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

The NH Tropen is situated outside from the city centre in the 'tropical museum' area. It offers great value without too many trimmings. The service was friendly and very good. Amsterdam's brilliant tram network passes right by the hotel and at value-for-money prices you can get to the heart of the city quickly. A bonus is the free Wi-Fi that seems to come with the deal in NH hotels. Lovely to have windows that open!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the park are good.

I have really enjoyed this hotel in Amsterdam. Great location (in front of tram n 9 that takes you directly downtown). Nice and clean room, good wifi connection and super breakfast. parking just in front of the hotel, the property is easy to reach by car.You park and you take advantage of the public transportation. Lovely reception with lovely and helpful girls. I recommend this hotel to anyone willing to relax but also to enjoy this amazing town!

Great little hotel. Was everything we really needed for a 4 nights stay in Amsterdam. We only really slept in there so didn't spend much time in the room. We were on the 10th floor as requested, so had a good view. Staff were friendly and helpful. It only takes 15mins on the no:9 tram to get into the main square which was handy. Would stay there again if we return to Amsterdam which I am sure we will....once fully recovered ;)

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 10th floor

Great staff. A little out of the way but the tram was right there and very reasonable. You could buy your tickets at the hotel which was nice. Thought the breakfast was a little pricy so didn't try it. Loved Amsterdam, would go back in a minute.

I Really enjoyed my stay. Room facing park was quiet and comfortable. Staff was helpful. From this hotel , I had easy access to the city and then could go back to a quieter hotel. The 48 hour multi pass and knowledge of tram stop right outside hotel allowed seamless travel.

Stayed recently on a weekend break to amsterdam. The hotel is in a reasonable location jsut far enough away from teh center of the city but close enough to make it an easy tram journey. 10 mins on the tram will take you directly to the main tourist area. The room was small, however it was clean and well presented. We was there to do the tourist thing for a few days so it wasnt essential to spend a lot of time in the room. The reception staff were most helpfull when asking for directions. Overall a really pleasant 3* offering good value for money.

I spent 2 nights in this hotel as a couple and once again, Tripadvisor reviewers have got this one spot-on ... it has a good location, outside the main bustle of the city centre but only a short tram ride away (€7.50 on the tram buys you a 24h tram pass, its great value). Its adjacent to the Oosterpark so its quiet, serene, and very green. We also went to the botanic gardens, 10 minutes walk away. The hotel is just a bit run-down, and is having some refurbishment, but its like a grand old lady rather than a run-down facility. I wouldn't rave about the breakfast though, it is OK, what I would expect from a hotel of this rating and price.

Would I go back ? Only if I was working in the area but if it was a quick business trip to Amsterdam I'd stay nearer the airport or in the centre of the city, but if I wanted a more leisurely trip then this place I would re-visit.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view over the park, and on a high floor
