If you're looking for a change from a big hotel then the Tulipa is the perfect place. It's like staying in a friend's house. I had the canal-view room which overlooked Leidsegracht. King bed was comfortable, bathroom huge, shower hot and facilities just perfect for a few days in Amsterdam.
The friendly welcome on arrival included a coffee and a rundown of the city's attractions on a big map. Jan is a guy who knows his way around. Both Jan and Paula do their utmost to make your stay as pleasant as they can with suggestions as to how to fill your day and plenty of in-the-know advice.
The hotel is 2 minutes' stroll from Leidseplein which is itself on the 1, 2 or 5 tram line from the middle of town. Jordaan district is close by as are many restaurants, eetcafés and places to see. Amsterdam is so easy to get around on foot and Tulipa is well located.
The 197 bus gets you to and from Leidseplein with ease (and only costs €4) so forget the train if you're coming and going from the airport.
Daily breakfast is served in the dining room downstairs and is expertly cooked by Jan or Paula. Muesli, cereal, scrambled eggs and mushrooms, banana pancakes, fruit, toast are all available. Coffee is excellent. This is a good time to get some advice for the day's activities from the hosts.
In summary, this little 3-room B&B made my stay in Amsterdam a real delight. It's just perfect for a city break. Request the canal-view room for a truly Dutch experience!
