“Lovely hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stayed here for three nights, which was probably enough due to the location. That said, the staff were all friendly, efficient and helpful. The room was spotless and the complimentary toiletries in the beautiful bathroom are a nice touch.

The breakfast is well worth paying the extra for as the food and choice was superb. I should also point out that there is nowhere else to get a meal in this area.

The journey in to Central Amsterdam was fine for four days, but I suspect any longer or with children, that it could become tedious. Please note that you have to take two trams to reach the centre. This was not explained to us, which led to us seeing rather more of the Amsterdam area than we had planned!

The trains and the tram system are brilliant! Definitely buy a tram pass for multiple trips as soon as you arrive. It's a clear and simple system, but the passes make it even easier.

I stayed in the Golden Tulip for two weeks on a business trip, and whilst this hotel is very nice this was long enough as eventually you find the bad points!

The hotel is well located for local business and central Amsterdam can be reached in 20 minutes by train or tram. On arrival the check in was efficient and the staff were very welcoming providing lots of information on local attractions and travel etc.

My room was spacious very modern, clean and comfortable and ideal for a business visitor.

The breakfast at the hotel was excellent with a very large choice and selection. In the evening a buffet is held for €24.50 (not including alcoholic drinks) with a great selection of salads, fish, oysters, desserts and main course options. You can also have various types of meat or fished cooked for you by the chefs. My only point here is that the meat is not the greatest quality and everything is cooked in oil, not the most healthy choice! For the price the buffet is OK, but when spending 2 weeks there you will really need to get out as it the same, night in night out!

On the whole this is a good business hotel for a few nights, but is not ideal for longer term stays in the City.

This hotel is huge but copes well with the number of visitors. The restaurant sells you a buffet for 2 hours for £22 which includes a large selection of dishes. However this is the only option unless you have a plate of fries from the bar. There are no local cafes so its either eat in Amsterdam or the restaurant which is not much of a choice. The reception staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
The rooms were of a good size and the beds very comfortable. Strange tea flavours were available in the room though?
Breakfast was £13 which seemed expensive until you pay £15 for egg on toast and a coffee in Amsterdam. The buffet style breakfast was therefore a far better option - lesson learnt.
Overall we would stay there again

Room Tip: Room at the front gives a good view and go as high as the 7th floor - its even better. Only 3 spaces...

Overall, this hotel was easy to find and rooms were very spacious. We stayed in a room with three adults, the room was huge and we never felt like we were stepping over each other. The breakfast was large with plenty to choose from. The location was close to the tram which was very convenient and easy to travel into town. This is a great hotel to stay at if you are driving to Amsterdam, very secure and safe parking.

After spending a long time trying to book a hotel near Amsterdams center , i decided to book Golden Tulip for 6 nights ,hotels near the center are overpriced , since Amsterdam has a good and efficient public transportation u dont need to be in the center to have a pleasent stay . A real 4 stars hotel with a 5 stars service , nothing to complain about . tram station is 50 meters from the hotel , to go to the center take tram 12 , and change to 13 . reception staff will tell u exactly what to do . room was spacious clean with good sleep quality , breakfast 15 eur / day , expensive maybe , but worths it . I do recommend this hotel.

Trying to find somewhere in Amsterdam that was modern as well as clean and close to town. Everything was really expensive in town but when I found this, it was perfect. The tram line is right outside the hotel and is a 5-10 minute ride to town. First night had a double room and was small but by no means too small. Then went to a triple room (there was only one on the hotel) and it was very spacious and had everything you would need. Little things like the pump soap in the bathroom and shower perfect for travellers.
