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
Overlooking the park and museum, this really is a great place to stay. It may be a little out of town for some, but we loved it's green outlook. However, there are tram stops just a few minutes walk away and you can be in the city centre in around 15 minutes or you can walk it in around 30 minutes. Shops, restraunts and supermarkets are all within easy walk. We had a room on the 4th floor which had great views of the museum and towards the beautiful park. Room is nicely decorated and spacious, the toilet and shower room are seperate, with the toilet being fairly compact! No air con or mini bar/fridge but then niether has my bedroom at home! All round pretty good value for money city hotel.
Fantastic breakfast, staff are very nice and rooms were lovely. Rooms are spacious and we had an amazing view. Cleaned very well. 2 tram stops within 2 minutes, one of which was a more main line which was great. Would recommend!
My Nephew and I stay for 4 night just New Year. The front of house staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were very comfortable with all the things we needed. The hotel is adjacent to a park and makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. Near shops and a market...on the tram route...splendid.
