“New,Clean,Spacious !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I am a Co founder of a travel agency , my husband and I decided to go this October for a very short escape to Amsterdam to check out the reopening of the "Rijks Museum" and enjoy some culture. Due to the nature of my business I am accustomed to try new places with out announcing that I am a travel agent to check out as a normal tourist wether it worth recommendation or not.
The Hotel is new so enjoy it while it is still fresh! staff friendly, for european 4 stars standers rooms are spacious,comfy bed good pillows ,bathroom big & clean , good amenities, best value for those who won't mind taking the tram, bike or walk to the center of the city . Also travelers who would like to gather for a drink and talk and the end of the day will find the bar appealing. Supermarket Tram and train station near by.
though a telephone next to the bed side is necessary.
Over all worth it for your stop in Amsterdam go and try it !

Room Tip: 4th flour higher value rooms

I was staying here with family on a trip to Amsterdam, some of us were taking part in running on the Amsterdam Marathon weekend (20.10.13)
The Golden Tulip is ideally located for a visit to Amsterdam, located in the western region of the city, it is only two tram rides into the main Dam square, this takes fifteen – twenty minutes The hotel is modern and clean, staff are friendly and we received a nice, warm and polite welcome.
I had a Double room, very clean and tidy, all the usual you would expect, i.e Flatscreen TV, coffee facilities (nespresso machine), a lovely big bathroom, with walk-in shower! Lovely!, much needed after the 8k run I had completed earlier.
We ate in the Hotel, this is something I would recommend, with the discount as being a customer it is 25 euros for three courses, but you can have as much as you like. Lots of choice great food and quality. One thing book a comfort room and you will get a bottle of wine with your meal, unfortunately I had not.
I had chosen to have breakfast at the hotel, again a substantial choice and good quality.
Overall a nice hotel, good location, I would recommend it.

Room Tip: choose a room at the rear of the hotel, book a comfy room, you will receive complimentary wine if yo...

I stayed here recently with a family member for 2 nights and was very pleased with our choice. The hotel is a 10 min walk from Sloterdjik station which is on the main line from Schipol Airport and Amsterdam central. When arriving at the station, go to the station hall, walk out the exit for buses and trams, walk down the stairs and keep on walking, past a food cart and a small diner, keeping the rail tracks on your left side. The foot path disappears, but cross the street and keep walking, under the motorway. The road veers to the right, keep on the same road and as you come to the end of the road you will see the Golden Tulip in front of you, the road then veers to the left, be careful crossing a couple of tram tracks and then you will be walking along the side of the hotel, the entrance is on the next corner.

This is a very nice modern hotel, the room was clean, with a safe, iron and ironing board, mini bar and coffee/tea making facilities. I found the bed a little hard and the pillow a little soft also the bed side light was poor, making reading in bed tricky. There is a flat screen TV with good satellite channels.

The bathroom is a shower room which was nice, a big shower stall with a rainwater shower. Enough towels and shower gel etc. plus a hairdryer.

We found the staff to be universally pleasant and helpful. The buffet breakfast was good, with excellent juices and good cereals, lots of breads and rolls, plenty of meats and cheeses with salad for continental breakfast, however the cooked English left a bit to be desired. The bacon was streaky, the sausages were Chicken (sausages should either be beef or pork NOT Chicken) the tomatoes had either a lot of seasoning on them or cheese and the scrambled egg was dreadful. However one of the chef's was making omelette's to order which was nice.

We also had the evening buffet, which I would highly recommend. Being in a residential area, there are very few restaurants in the area. I think there was one Chinese and one (I think) Indian restaurant near the bus stop, but that was it, so unless you want to go into the city again for the evening the hotel is really your best bet. But the buffet was most definitely worth it. There was a special price while we were there of 24.50 euros. The buffet had everything from soups, plenty of salads, cooked food plus vegan and sushi, plus chef's to cook either fish or steaks to your taste. Puddings were ok, not great but fine, with a nice white chocolate fountain as well. Included in the price were soft drinks and tea/coffee. This really was good value.

I would have given this hotel 5 stars but for the few little niggles, but when next in Amsterdam I certainly intend to stay here.

Hotel clean and comfortable. Buffet fantastic at breakfast and evening meal. If your up for the tram journeys in and out of town (you need to take 2 trams into the centre) then this is a nice place to stay. Some reception staff were a tad abrupt and not overly welcoming or helpful which was a little off putting. The restaurant staff, room maids and bar staff were very nice.

Room Tip: Our room was small everything we needed but compact for 2 people. Opt for a larger room if budget a...

Don't be put off from the outside of the hotel. When we walked to the hotel we wondered what we had let ourselves in for. It's not attractive from the outside at all, and is near a cross roads off a large road. However, once you walk in to the hotel you'd think you are in a posh city centre location. The hotel is decorated in a modern style. The rooms are lovely, with a coffee machine and one of the best bathrooms I've seen in a hotel for a while! Massive shower, massive sink and underfloor heating!
We only stayed for one night but would be happy to stay for longer. We didn't eat in the restaurant or have breakfast as we were having a city break on a budget.
You can buy travel cards from the front desk which can be used for transport across the city. The nearest tram stop is just across the road from the hotel, and it goes right into the city centre.
The hotel will look after your bags once you check out, if your flight is not until the evening.

I would recommend this hotel to other travellers....a brilliant find in Amsterdam.

Nice, spacious room, immaculately clean and complete with a nespresso coffee machine (mmm) and free wifi. Really impressed with the service - the reception staff in particular were lovely and very helpful! It is a bit out of the city centre, but the tram is only a couple of minutes walk away, the train 6 minutes and a cab to the centre cost around €15. Highly recommended!

Whilst this hotel is not in the centre of Amsterdam, it is well located and easily accessible. Tram 12 is useful for the most museum such as the Rijksmuseum and Van Gough Museum. Regrettably there is no direct tram to the central station but Sloterdijk station is about a 5-8 minute walk away with trains every few minutes taking about 10 minutes to Central Station. Basically upon exit of the main entrance, turn left and go under the A10 bridge, then take the first right once under the bridge, walk to the end of the street and turn left where you should see some steps to the concourse on the right hand side. If you do not have a maestro credit card you can only use coins on the self - service ticket machine at the station. You can use notes at the ticket office however a supplement of 50 cents is applied on a per ticket basis.
Those who intend to sightsee at the left of the reception desk there is a stand with little cards with discounts and free gifts which is useful. There are tours available from the hotel to Dutch cities and Belgian which can be booked at reception up to 10pm the night before subject to availability. The Countryside tour (Volendam, Marken and Zaanse Schans) was an interesting and fun tour and we would have probably not have been to these locations without being on this tour.
Our triple room was located on the corner of the top floor. I am pleased this Golden Tulip has rooms for three and four persons as this is under catered for in hotels. The room had three full size proper single beds rather than a rollaway bed for the third person. The room had a good level of cleanliness and the furniture had no noticeable wear (which should be expected for a hotel which has recently opened). The room was of a modern style with a 80s twist which has been tastefully chosen. One minor design fault is the curtain did not go right across the window which was slightly irritating but could easily be resolved by the hotel if they put a Velcro fastener onto the wall and the curtain. The bathroom has been designed to a high standard with slate floor and wall tiles which is very effective. Villeroy and boch features in the bathroom, crockery and cutlery which gives the impression the hotel aims for a high standard. Only a shower in the bathroom however this is large with a ceiling and side shower which had a good level of pressure and warmth. Towels are only replaced if put on the floor in order to be environmentally friendly. There was no noise even with the windows open on the seventh floor.
There was a hospitality tray which is not always present on the continent provided with a Nesspresso machine which also provided hot water for tea infusions. The choices of tea provided where somewhat unusual and English breakfast was not always provided but available upon request, it would be nice to provide biscuits with the hospitality tray. I think it is a good idea for the mini bar to be like a vending machine so there is no confusion in regard to whether you have had something from the minibar but it does limit usage for your own refrigeration needs.
I would advise you to have a breakfast package as it will be more cost effective than paying for it at the time. The breakfast was a huge buffet with a full English breakfast and Continental breakfast with omelettes and fried eggs available on demand. It impressed me that there was an orange juicer machine for guests to use which of course meant freshly squeezed orange juice was available and is a superb addition to the breakfast not commonly found in other hotels. It was nice that the Dinner buffet was reduced by €5 to €24.95 per person for hotel guests (I do not know whether this is on going or a limited offer), from what I saw most guests took advantage of that offer and I would have only dined in the restaurant with that offer which I did all 5 evenings! The dinner buffet offers a comprehensive selection with Japanese food, meat steaks and fish grilled on demand and international dishes such as beef stew, sweet and sour and lasagne. In addition to main courses there were chips, wedges, salad and vegetables as a side dish. An impressive selection of desserts was available with a chocolate fountain, cheesecake, profiteroles, fruit selection, cream, ice cream and pancakes available to order. It was also great that you could help yourself to soft drinks in the fridge, freshly squeezed orange juice and water as part of the package. As other reviews and a member of staff have said other than the hotel’s restaurant you really have to go down town for a restaurant, the only option being a local Chinese restaurant.
There was a lounge area with a copy of the International Herald Tribune and computers and a printer hiding in the door to the left all of which usage is free of charge to guests. It was good there was free WIFI that was reasonably quick. The staff were helpful and courteous throughout our stay. Check in and out were both smoothly executed.
In conclusion, I would highly rate this hotel for anyone who wishes to stay in Amsterdam especially if you like being away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, the locality is a well-kept part of the city. Everything was at least as expected with some aspects exceeding expectations. If I came back to this region I would stay here again and will recommend.
