Hotels

These are the hotels where Nikhef regularly books rooms for their guests. Nikhef has negotiated 10% discount deals with these hotels. If you like Nikhef to book a hotel for you, please send an email to: travel@nikhef.nl. You will have to pay the hotel yourself according to hotel policy.

You can also book a room at booking.com yourself. It has been our experience in the past that it is not much of a difference pricewise.

These hotels are all located along tram line 9, the tramline closest to Amsterdam Science Park, but still a 20 min walk or a short busride (see here "how to reach Nikhef"). Eden Manor Hotel is closest to Science Park. Prices vary between 80-150 euro (depending on season and availability). There is also a good train connection between Amsterdam Central Station and Amsterdam Science Park.
