The Novotel is a about 3 minutes walk from train station Amsterdam-RAI (you can see it from the platform, walk to the right after leaving the station.) Station Amsterdam RAI can be reached from the city Centre with Metro 51 or Tram 4.


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: You will have to pay the hotel yourself according to hotel policy.

You can also book a room at 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.
