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 well located with a few simple but satisfying restaurants nearby. I liked the fact that the room was light and had a nice view on a park. The furniture has clearly seen better days and there is no minibar. What really disappointed me, however, was that that the wifi was not working: the connection was slow and constantly went on and off. The receptionist tried to help but had to admit that these problems were known and there was nothing she could do about it.
Excellent choice for a 3 star hotel. It was very luxurious, very clean and breakfast had a big variety of foods. The maids kept it clean everyday (towels,bed sheets etc). The bathroom was shared in two different rooms so it could be used by two people easier. Also, the ladies working down at the reception were very helpful and polite. They can book you tickets for museums, tram, metro etc. Had a very good experience 4 stars from me.
I stayed at the Troppen hotel during the heat wave of August 2018. The room did not have air conditionning and it was basically impossible to sleep, so I had to shorten my stay. The personnel at the reception repeatedly told me they agreed for a 2 day refund, but they never processed it.
I stayed there for 5 nights it has a beautiful view to the park which was nearby . The morning view from the room was terrific. In the hotel you can have a great and cheap breakfast. Also the hotel can get you tickets for museums or exhibitions for better price .An other plus is that there is a tram station nearby with the tram coming every 5-7 minutes.Last but not least the people working there were helpful and kept the place in great shape . I hope that I will go there again soon and I recommend to everyone .
Nice quiet area, lovely view over the park, room is small but agreable, it felt pleasantly warm in such a cold night. Also a wird about the friendly reception personnel, makes it all the more enjoyable whaen that happens. Would stay again!
