Nice Relief from the Insanity of the City Center
Clean hotel, free internet in the lobby, friendly staff, and located in a great neighborhood.
Not in the city center, but this was a plus for us. The hotel is in a nice neighborhood less than a 15 minute tram ride from the city center. The tram was cheap and right outside the hotel.
This hotel was not in the city center, but it was exactly what we liked about it. Set in a quiet neighborhood, with a tram right outside the hotel, is was very easy to go to the city center. The tram was cheap and took less than 15 minutes to get to Dam Square. The hotel itself was clean and offered complimentary use of a computer in the lobby and free wifi.

Tropen Amsterdam
Location, next to KIT, where I attended a conference.
No room service. No restaurant service during the weekend. Poor condition of some furnishings.
The room and bathrooms were clean. However, no one had clearly checked the condition of the furniture. The chair in front of the desk had lost its cushioning, so much so that one was sitting on bare metal under the fabric. This made it impossible to use the chair. I was also very disappointed at the lack of any kind of food service during the weekend and by the lack of room service. I did appreciate having a kettle and tea/coffee in the room. Front desk staff were friendly and the breakfast, included in the price, adequate.

Clean, excellent breakfast and reception staff. Great views from windows over the city. Lovely. spacious rooms.
About 30 min walk from city centre, although tram stops to anywhere in the city are right outside the hotel.
Very pleasantly sursprised by the hotel. Looks like a tower block from the outside but inside is very smart, exactly like a 4 star hotel but with 2 star prices. The rooms are lovely and if you are on a high floor you will have views across the city, i felt this was an added bonus to my holiday. The hotel is very safe and quiet and you can catch a hotel shuttle from the airport. The breakfast is excellent and the staff cannot be faulted. The only slight downside is that the hotel is situated far on the east side and you need to take a tram to get into the city which could become quite tiring of an evening as we did not see any places to eat nearby. however, the stop is directly opposite the hotel and the trams come every 15 mins to anywhere in the city. the reception staff will also help you to navigate the tram system. Overall the hotel is fantastic value for money and is far better than others I have seen. It was a big factor in making our trip to amsterdam an almost perfect city break.

One of the best hotels for the $$$
The rooms and service are fantastic. The tram stop is right outside the hotel and you are a 10 minute ride away from the center. The staff is very friendly, the room service is great.
The tea/coffee maker in the room was dirty inside (but i am sure this is not true in general). The internet is expensive. The location isn't central.
The rooms and service are fantastic. Well worth your price (especially if you book on agoda.com, which will include breakfast). The location isn't central, but the tram stop is right outside the hotel and you are a 10 minute ride away from the center. The staff is very friendly, the room service is great, the internet is expensive if you want the 24 hours deal, but if 15 minutes suffices, then you get that for free in the hotel lobby (and there are plenty of cafes in the city that give you free internet e.g CoffeeCompany). In sum, I would stay here every time that I come to Amsterdam.

Nice location, good access to trams to go to town, easy access to supermarket across the street and for asian food lovers, there's a little asian place about 5 minutes across the street.
small toilet and it was dark. smells horrid as there was no ventilation.
I would definitely recommend the hotel again. It's near the amenities and has easy access to transport (i.e. trams). Also, the reception area was pleasant and the hotel personnnel were polite. They also provided 15 minutes free access to the internet and wifi which made it easy to do online check ins for flights.

Good priced hotel
- Good priced. - Nice rooms. - Good transportation to centre.
- Breakfast room not very nice.
It's a good hotel, just outside the centre, but easy access with tram and buses. When booked at Agoda it is nicely priced. For sure I would recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Nice and comfortable hotel
The hotel was situated very nice, rooms were ok and clean.
Balcony door was not open, no mini bar.
The hotel is situated very nice and the hotel staff were very friendly. The breakfast was simple but ok, only the chairs were not ok. If I moved back and forth the chair almost fell apart. Overall, in combination with the price we paid for the room, we would surely come back again.

Hotel perfecto y buen servicio
Bufet variado, hotel ubicado en zona tranquila de amsterdam y con buena conexion de tranvias
habitaciones algo justas de espacio
Estuve en el hotel 5 días y la verdad que no estuvimos demasiado porque despues del desayuno ya llegabamos por la noche el trato recibido fue excelente sin ningun tipo de problema con el staff y en 10 minutos de tranvia estabas en la plaza dam y el tranvia se cogia en la puerta del hotel.

sejour confort à Amsterdam
espace freutré, bien chauffé, stylé et confortable,très propre, personnel très accueillant, disponible, et sympathique, parlant anglais et français, petit déjeuner très haut dessus de la moyenne,proximité des lignes du tramway
je n en vois pas, dans ce rapport qualité prix
Le Tropen Hotel est situé en face du Tropenmuséum, l un des plus beau musée d Amsterdam, les photos reflètent exactement ce qu est l hotel et je n ai pas été déçue, je me suis attardée une heure le matin au petit déjeuner tout à fait extraordinaire de bon goût et très varié.Bien situé près des lignes du tramway, l hotel permet d être au calme et incite toutefois à la promenade le long des canaux pour arriver au centre ville (20mn à pied sans se presser)
