“Superb, especially the 'live cooking' stir fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We stayed here in June (but I have only just become a Tripadvisor member!). Excellent location, easy to get to from Schipol airport via train and a short walk. Number 12 tram stops nearby & will take you into town, stops at Museumplein, convenient for the Van Gogh & other museums. Be sure to visit a pub called “In de Wildeman” situated in Kolksteeg for a warm welcome and a comprehensive selection of beers. The hotel room was huge, nice coffee machine, big bed. The food at the hotel was superb, especially the 'live cooking' stir fries - choose all your own ingredients & the chef will cook it there & then, in front of you.

Stayed here 12th November 2013 for 4 nights, wow what amazing hotel, Room was spacious and the bathroom was FAB! We so loved the underfloor heating lush! All the staff were very helpful, and great sense of humour, Hotel location for us was ideal peaceful and quiet, use tram 12 then the tram 14 or 13 take you direct outside magna plaza, we bought av chiparkt card put 20 euros on it lasted 4 days, train tickets are bought at machine, charge 50c extra at desk, Food in dream hotel was good such a variety too choose from, complimentary bottle of wine was a plus, If we come back to amsterdam so would stay at this hotel again, fab place! :-) x

Room Tip: comfort rooms were big enough, plus got 50% off room service and a free bottle of wine, we were on...

Stayed here for a couple of nights. The hotel is close to tram station (walking 100m) and about 2 tram stations far from metro station. The area is in the 'modern part' of Amsterdam and hence not many touristy places around. Travelling to the main street (Amsterdam Centraal) entails changing tram lines, hence not recommended if you have a very short stay...takes 20-30mins approx to reach.

Now the positives... excellent property, welcoming staff and quick check-in and check-out. The room and bathroom were of great quality..all in all..excellent value for money!

My friend and I stayed in the Golden Tulip for 3 nights in November this year. I couldn't wait to get home and write a review on the brilliant service we had here. If you stay here you MUST try the dinner and breakfasts. Well worth the money, brilliant service and a huge amount of choice. The hotel staff were excellent - very polite and helpful. The rooms were spotless and it was a very quiet location. All in all I couldn't fault this hotel, would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay fairly central but in a good quality hotel.

Stayed here for just 1 night.

Check-in: very quick & polite

Room: I booked a comfort room, and was pleasantly surprised with the room: large, modern, welcoming. 2 single beds pushed together, but as I was travelling alone this did not bother me.
Nice bathroom, loved the shower! Very clean bathroom :-) Also good coffee in the room (nespresso maker).

I did encounter an electricity problem.
I tried to switch on a big standing lamp by pushing the light switch. As a result, no more electricity in my room at all. Problem was that that light switch was on a cable that was cut through half way... a bit of a hazard in my humble opinion.
I called reception and literally within 3 minutes it was fixed and a technician came to check in the room if all was okay. So, well done. He did leave the faulty wire, which I found a bit odd.

Breakfast: large buffet, with plenty of good quality choice. I enjoyed it a lot, ate enough to keep me going all day! Not cheap at 15€ but worth it.

Location: Hmm... I travelled by car and the hotel is just off the highway, very easy to find! Payed 17€ for parking (parked for 25 hours, flat rate of 15€ per day then 2€ per every extra hour to max 15€). Upon leaving the hotel, you're on the highway in 2 minutes, very convenient!

Travelling to the centre is quite easy, depending on where you want to go: Dam, 2 trams, Leidseplein, 1 tram. It does take about 20 mins and a ticket costs 2,80€.
On the first night it was cold and raining which makes waiting for the tram after hours of walking a bit of a pain... The next day it was sunny, cold but beautiful and this seemed just a bit easier. In the cold winter days this is not the most convenient location but it was alright.

Staff: friendly & professional.
They dealt with the electricity problem very quickly.
I went down to complain about a group of very rowdy men partying in the room across mine and they took care of it.

Would I stay again? In spring/summer time, yes without hesitation. Cold winter days... not so sure, however if travelling by car again then yes without a doubt!

The hotel made my stay in Amsterdam even nicer :-)

My experience in this hotel was very good. Started with a very easy check in and helpful staff. Was even more delighted when I was upgraded to a superior room which was spacious and very comfortable. The room came with quite a nice coffee/tea maker, iron and ironing table.
Their breakfast and dinner spread is phenomenal - be prepared for a feast!
Its very conveniently located - 10 min walking distance to the Sloterdijkstation and hardly 5 min walk from the tram stop which can connect you to Museumplein.
