“Tulip Inn Amsterdam Center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2010

location close to Amsterdam Centraal Station ( Main Train Station )
only minutes to walk, close to city center of Amsterdam, shopping and night life
on the corner of the red-light district and amusement quartier

the hotel has been renovated recently after it got acquired by the Golden Tulip
Hotel Group - still it remains a basic hotel with average standard
the rooms are quite small, rooms located towards the street are VERY noisy

okay for a night over in Amsterdam - especially due to location

I have just returned from a 3 night stay in this hotel & found it to be in an ideal,quiet location off Dam Square.Staff were friendly,polite & helpful at all times.I stayed in rm 228 which overlooks the lane at the front of the hotel.Windows are only single glazed so there are associated sounds from the lane but no traffic passes through.I believe rooms to the rear of the hotel are quieter.My rm was serviced everyday of my stay.It was a good size with plenty of rm to comfortably move around ,there was a hanging wardrobe,safe, en suite shower rm,very comfy bed & radiator.There is a lift to all floors,breakfast was continental,3 types of cereal,fruit,toast,yoghurt,rolls,meats & cheese,tea coffee & fruit juice.All in all a very enjoyable stay,would definately stay again & wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family & friends.Ps.I consider myself to have high standards!!

This was our 1st trip to Amsterdam and we hit it lucky when we booked this hotel. Its in a perfect central location just off Dam Square. We were in a room overlooking the alley way and were happy with our room and the breakfast. Would definately stay here again.

The location was excellent, but not the rest. The staff was not specially friendly, they hardly looked at us. The room was small, but OK. They did not have any room with extra beds so 3 persons could not stay in one room. We also had an accident with a cup of instant coffee-powder on the floor. When we came back, the room was'nt cleaned, and the reception called to our room and said they would not clean it until we payed 10 euros extra because of the powder. Was'nt they supposed to vacuum-clean the floor anyway? Why take extra charge, it was no extra work to sweep the vacuum cleaner over the powder, it would have taken the staff maybe 5-6 seconds extra!
They did not refill the minibar the 3 days we were there either.
I would not recommend this hotel to other persons, because it's very expensive, has an average standard and a cheapskate and not friendly personell that hardly look at you or say hello.

Nice hotel in very central location in Amsterdam. Just around the corner from Dam Square behind Nieuwe Kerk this hotel has the perfect location to both explore the city and access any other location around the city center. Rooms are ok and the service is too. Lively surroundings but quite place to stay.

Now known as the Best Western Dam Square, this place is located next to the Nieuwe Kerk and Dam Square. You will hear the bells from the Nieuwe Kerk and sometimes conversation, but all in all it was a very good hotel. The rooms are a tad small (I was in a one-person room) and the wireless Internet fees start at midnight. So, if you check in in the afternoon and start using the computer then, it will charge you the same as for a 24-hour period. Still, the fees are reasonable. Definitely recommended for anyone planning on seeing the city.

This is a well located hotel that doesn't suffer too much from the noise and bustle around but it's a bit overpriced for what it offers. It wouldn't have been my first choice in Amsterdam - I was booking at very short notice and there were few other convenient options. I had a room up on the third floor directly under the roof - the air con was essential as it was unusually steamy in Amsterdam and it was perfectly effective. The room was basic and ready for an upgrade but was clean as was the bathroom. The staff were friendly. Essentially there's nothing particularly wrong with this place but nothing in particular that stands out positively about it either.
