Hi there,

Crystal Ball mind ON ;-)

IF we have an average winter, 3rd week of April.

But if winter softer than usual, 1 week earlier; and if stronger than usual (as 2013), then 1-2 weeks later

Crystal ball mind OFF

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Last two weeks in April are the best chance of seeing the tulips at their best. Although in 2014 that will coincide with Easter (18-21 April) and King's Day (27th April) so be prepared for high demand for flights, trains and hotels.

We will need more info to give you hotel suggestions. What is your budget? Amenities? How long will your stay be? Just keep in mind that the start of the tulip season just after Easter and near King's Day don't mix.

Sriman, you could try to find something in Lisse, which is the town with all the flower growers and where Keukenhof is. I don't know if you have any other plans for things to see and do in the Netherlands. Lisse is a 40 minute trip from the airport. In Lisse you could walk or bike to see the flowers (if they are in bloom).

Alternatively, you could stay in Leiden and then travel to Lisse from there. Leiden is a bigger town, picturesque and worth visiting in its own right, and would be more convenient for trips to Amsterdam, The Hague, Delft, etc.

"hi thanks for the reply any suggestions of hotel names in leiden and lisse"

I suggest you look for an apartment through Airbnb.com or hotel through booking.com

"and also can you let me know how i need to travel from amsterdam airport to these places any website details. can i book the tickets to travel in advance if so can you mention them."

Just buy tickets over here. Fix price.

Brussels is ugly, grey, big and smelly. Oh and it has a few nice parts. But not worth travelling to, in my opinion. There are many nicer towns within the Netherlands. Search the forums for suggestions or do a Google search.
