Amsterdam’s beauty has remained apparent for centuries, thanks, in part, to the city’s unique aesthetic – it’s a lacework of calming canals lined by dignified 17th-century houses. Add to this the ever-growing population of chic coffee shops, stylish boutiques, antique emporiums, fascinating museums and the generous peppering of artist studios and world-class galleries, and you have a city that’s as inviting as it is enchanting.
Amsterdam Tropen Hotel is your home away from home, occupying a beautiful location, right beside Oosterpark. You can stroll through this calming expanse of green, or hop on a metro for a 10-minute ride into the city center. The hotel itself is cool and contemporary in style, with a brasserie and a bar on site, and the contemporary guestrooms boast all the modern amenities. After a day of strolling the canals – or renting a bike and cruising like a local – this is the perfect spot to unwind, recharge and plan your next day in this ultra-cool city.
The Standard rooms at Amsterdam Tropen Hotel are tastefully furnished and designed with sustainability in mind. Hardwood floors are paired with a soothing palette of cream and beige, making for a relaxing ambience. You’ll also enjoy lovely views of the city from the large picture windows.
The brasserie and bar is open for breakfast and also offers a small menu of international dishes, incorporating local and organic produce as much as possible. Meanwhile, the newly opened Grand Cafe De Tropen is uniquely set in the Royal Tropical Institute and is open seven days a week, with a sunny terrace that provides an al-fresco option over the summer months, complete with views across Oosterpark.
Amsterdam Tropen Hotel is located next to Oosterpark in the Dapperbuurt district. Amsterdam itself is a city of canals that effortlessly mixes its heritage with an infectious, contemporary buzz. Attractive rows of 17th-century houses are dotted with hip coffee shops and design-savvy boutiques, as well as antique emporiums, artist studios and fascinating museums.
How to Get There
Stayed for 4 nights in March in twin room on 9th floor with fab view over the city.
The hotel is a little out of the centre of town, but very accessible via tram.
Nice location next to a park, it's a nice spot for breakfast in the morning overlooking the joggers and dog walkers enjoying the park.
Simple and functional hotel, was clean and quiet.
Good stuff: view from room, quiet location, proximity to park
Bad stuff; rubbish pillows
Overall really nice hotel, situated amazingly, amazing 10th floor view onto the park behind and Amsterdam skyline.
A few negative points; cleaner didn’t change bedsheets once throughout our stay, rubbish wasn’t taken out. We had no fresh towels and when they replaced them for new ones we were only given one bath towel.
Looks like a prison in east Europe with run down rooms and depressing looks. The hotel is in dire need of a renovation. Everything goes in dark brown. The surroundings are however quite nice with museums and pubs.
Stayed here during mine and a friends 5 day visit to Amsterdam. The hotel itself is clean and the reception staff were so friendly, polite and really helpful. Before we left, they even offered to check the train times etc for us.
When we arrived we were given a choice on which room we wanted, we chose the room on the top floor overlooking the city. So nice!
Our beds were made every day, the bathroom and toilet were kept clean and tidy, the shower was also easy to use too.
The tram and train routes from the hotel into central are really easy to navigate as well!
Given 4 stars instead of 5 because the toilet was a little cramped and there were no plug sockets next to the beds. But we’d definitely stay again and recommend!
We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Our room was on the 7th floor so we had a beautiful view of the Tropen museum, the room was cleaned every day.
It’s not a centric place but the line 19 and 14 takes you straight to the centre.
It’s not a place I would recommend if you are planning to go with children and have to return to the hotel often. If you are a couple or a group of young people it’s a good place to consider.
All the staff was friendly and helpful.
We were able to leave our bags on the last day free of charge
