Situated between the museum district and the 9 streets, this guest house offers ease of access to all the sights of Amsterdam. The owners are very friendly and offer good advice on sights to see and places to visit. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is fresh and prepared on order.

We enjoyed a fabulous weekend break in Amsterdam for my husband's birthday. The Tulipa lived up to its 5 star rating on Trip Advisor with excellent personal service. Paula and Jan, our hosts, were very attentive from their initial greeting with tea and coffee and a quick guide to Amsterdam and all it had to offer, to advising and booking restaurants for us and generally being very plesant, accomodating and friendly throughout our stay. The room (canal view) was lovely, spacious, nicely decorated, immaculate and the large bathroom was very clean and modern. The large bed was very comfy and it was nice to be able to sit at the small coffee table and chairs, looking out of the beautiful huge canal house windows over the canals watching the hustle and bustle of Amsterdammers. The room had tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary mini bar. The breakfasts were lovely, plentiful and varied with a different hot dish each day. We had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs one day and pancakes another, delicious! Even the retro detailing in the breakfast room was a delight, including an original fully working iMac! Would definately recommend Tulipa and Amsterdam- but watch out for the cyclists, they don't take any prisoners!

Our four night stay at the Tulipa was like a home from home experience. The canal view room we had was so large it had a full seating and dining area as well as a bed etc. This was lovely to have especially as Amsterdam was very cold when we were there and it was a pleasure to return to our room to warm up and relax without feeling you're staring at four walls. Paula and Jan were both very welcoming and gave us lots of tips on places to see and restaurants to eat. Breakfast was a lovely selection of fruits,cereals and bread with an individually cooked surprise each morning such as pancakes or eggs. We would definately recommend a stay here as this bed and breakfast is of a high quality and the location is perfect with every part of the city within walking distance.

Paula and Jan gave us a warm welcome. We had a well appointed large bedroom and bathroom, and a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts were amazing. We received helpful and informative advice re trips and travel which made for wonderful city break. Thank you Paula and Jan.

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!

We stayed in the canal view suite the first weekend of Nov 2012. The entire experience was smooth - booking, communication with Paula, perfect directions from the airport to the hotel, and of course the stay itself! We were welcomed with hot tea and a map with recommendations. The suite was large, with great sitting area and a balcony overlooking the intersection of 2 canals. Amenities included a fridge, water kettle, and coffee maker. The bathroom is up another flight of stairs (interior to the room), but large, private, and with heated floors. We were so busy we only enjoyed breakfast one morning, but it was excellent. It is also a great location to get out and about nearby, but also to grab a tram to other neighborhoods. We hope to be back!

Our room was huge, bathroom huge and very comfortable set-up. Most comfortable pillows in all of our travels; no small thing for getting rest. Wonderful breakfast both days prepared according to guest schedule. Pretty location and well-located. Paula was absolutely terrific; genuinely friendly and helpful. We lost a bag on the train on the way to Amsterdam and she just jumped in to help however she could. Stairway is steep but manageable. We wish them much success and happiness.
