Golden Tulip Hotel Central

Reviewed March 18, 2013

I stayed just one night at the Golden Tulip central hotel while travelling on business. It was quite expensive, though to be honest I have paid a similar price for worse hotels in Holland. The room was quite small, but comfortable, well equipped and clean. The bed was just the right degree of firmness; the public areas were quite luxurious; the staff seemed very friendly and the location is perfect, right on the market square in the centre of this charming town. Breakfast (not included) was fine though nothing special, and again fairly pricey.
And there were two other things that I particularly appreciated: 1) the TV channels included BBC1 and BBC2, so a British person feels immediately at home, and 2) a 'Historical Atlas of Den Bosch' had been placed in the room, which (for a map geek like me) was fascinating despite not being able to read the Dutch text! Thumbs up to the management for that idea.

Super location in the middle of the city, easy to park in the parkinghouse next to the hotel. Very good and friendly Reception. We had dinner in the Brasserie which was very good and with a nice view over the Market place. Nice atmosphere in the common areas.

We had a standard room, which was the only type avaliable when we booked. It was ok, but felt a bit dark. Comfortable bed and clean bathroom. We were sleeping with the window open, which was no problem, quite hotel in general.
Breakfast buffet is fine, not included in the price. Very friendly and helpful staff.
The room brings down the grade, otherwise it would have been a 4.

Whatever the purpose of your visit to Den Bosch, don't miss the chance to stay at this marvellous hotel.
Right in the city centre, 5 minutes from the train station and easy to reach by car, this hotel offers clean, bright and comfortable rooms and an atmosphere that makes you feel home. I stayed 3 nights and took advantage of the superfast WIFI connection several times from my room. The only downside is perhaps the main lobby, that you can access from a narrow alley behind the hotel. The Market Square entrance is the entrance to the restaurant and you have to go through it, if you want to access the hotel from the square.
Breakfast buffet was good enough and the coffee was not bad at all. Would I choose it again? Yes, of course.

This hotel has four stars bud they derserve half a star extra due to their service and the location.
It's located in the middle of Den Bosch and you can park your car just across the street. The rooms are spacious and renovated not too long ago, More specific you can feel the history of the hotel. It's not an anonymous business hotel but also locals visit the lounge, which has a nice view on the Market Place. There's also a really nice hotelbar where they serve excellent beer (cold). The only improvement they can make is on the breakfastbuffet. The place you eat breakfast is great but I expected more of it (variety, qualiy)
This is one of the best hotels to stay when you visit Den Bosch.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view on the Market Place

For business and pleasure this hotel ticks a number of boxes. It is close to the centre of town, so much is within easy walking distance. The rooms are a reasonable size and very clean. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the restaurants are adequate for a short stay. If there is a negative it would be that the beds are slightly firm but not uncomfortably so. The key question, would I stay again, absolutely yes.

I stayed at Hotel Central in December and was very happy with my choice overall. I had stayed there a few times in the past and was not particularly satisfied, but I tried it again and have found it to be greatly improved. The entrance is not grand by any means. If you enter through the front (from the market square), you enter into the restaurant, and if you use the main entrance (down a narrow road), you enter into a sunken, small lobby area. It's very clean and well decorated, just not impressive.

The service was very good overall. Friendly front desk staff, housekeeping, and bar and breakfast waitstaff. The room appeared to be newly remodeled, with nice flat screen TV, stylish bathroom, etc. I had a room on the back of the square, and it was winter, so it was very quiet and restful. The breakfast was pretty simple and limited, compared to some buffets in Holland, but good. I didn't have lunch or dinner in the restaurant, so I can't comment on the quality, but it is nicely decorated and inviting. I stayed for 6 nights and the internet was not quite where it should be. It was not working on several occasions, and when it was working, it was pretty slow. I called the front desk about it and they were eventually able to get the connection back up. The internet service was, however, free, so you get what you pay for! The location is excellent, but a bit hard to drive to if you're unfamiliar with Den Bosch.

I would definitely stay here again when I'm back for business in Waalwijk, which I am several times per year

I have stayed here for years now and there is a steady improvement of quality and service. Modernized rooms are well and cozy, old ones are still ... Well, old.

Breakfast is not good enough for the price, there is enough and food quality is good, but there is just no "heart" with which the breakfast is assembled. But still okay.

Still I like coming here every few weeks for business, as the service is great. People at breakfast always remember that I like tea and which one I prefer ;)) If something is broken in the room or needs to be fixed, they immediately take care and are happy, when you tell them! Only then it can be solved!

Best thing is the location!!! Right in the city center of Den Bosch!
