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
The hotel is out of the way of the busy centre and is about a 45 minute walk from dam square, you can easily get the number 9 tram straight outside the hotel which makes it really accessible. The hotel is not amazing to look at and the building looks quite out dated from the outside, but the inside doesn’t compare, the rooms were clean, modern decor and beds were comfy. The hotel is a really nice hotel and our room looked out on the park which is right next door, friendly staff I would definitely recommend if you don’t want to be in the centre. We had an amazing time and my husband was very happy to spend his 30th here.
The Tropen Hotel is a high rise hotel (it feels like a converted apartment block from the 1970s) sitting away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, and next door to a lovely park. It's in a very quiet neighbourhood, with shops and cafes nearby should I require them, which suited me perfectly. That being said, there are trams just outside the hotel and the metro is within walking distance (for me at least).
The staff were friendly on check in, and spoke English (as does pretty much everyone in the Netherlands!) Check in was easy and efficient. The lifts up to the rooms require your key card to get up. There are no stairs, and the lifts feel ancient which made feel a little nervous.
The room was lovely and clean and extremely spacious. I was able to do my yoga in the room without hitting anything. The view from the room was breathtaking, overlooking the park behind the hotel. On the 8th floor it was a great view over Amsterdam. The bathroom was a little small though.
My tariff did not include breakfast, but I could have taken if I wanted. I believe it was 12euro per person.
All in all, impressed with this hotel.
Location is ok however Very small bathrooms, no in room ironing facility and average fit out in rooms. Was booked in for 3 nights and checked out after one. This is a very very basic hotel and in my opinion 3 star rating is too high.
This hotel is wonderfully located an easy 10 minute tram ride from the Central station. It is a quiet neighborhood next to a large park. The tram station is just out the front door. We had a corner room facing the park and it was very comfortable. The breakfast room was lovely with a view facing the scenery of the park. If you are looking for a comfortable, clean hotel where you take public transportation, this place is perfect. Two years ago, we stayed a hotel nearer the central train station and much preferred this location and price
The hotel is nice, typical 3 starts european style... the building is from '70...I'll call acceptable for an expensive Amsterdam. But I assumed they had AC in the room and they didn't, really was my mistake...I think in general people think that this is obvious...
If you wanna stay from ends if May to the end of summer, I will recommend other hotel. Thank God with the window open we could sleep...
