“First class B&B in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

All the reviews below mine convey our stay at the Tulipa, hosted by Paula, perfectly - it was fantastic!

To the advice prior to arriving on places to go and booking tickets in advance, to restaurant and places to go recommendations. Don't miss the apple pie experience - Paula will explain!

Great canal view room, with all the small details thought of. We can't recommned highly enough.

Pre-arrival communication and transportation information was very good. The bus from the airport drops you a short walk from the door. Paula met us on arrival and helped with local insight into our agenda. Her restaurant recommendations in a nearby neighborhood were excellent. The canal suite is up a double flight of stairs and the bath is up another somewhat steep flight of stairs, but I think this is typical of Amsterdam. The location is a short walk to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh and Concertgebouw but feels more like a neighborhood than a tourist area. Tram stops are close by to take you around the canal ring or straight through the city to Centraal station. The canal view suite made us feel like we were staying at a friend’s nicely appointed apartment. Breakfast includes an assortment of fresh fruit, cheese, artisan breads and one of Paula’s specialties like omelets or banana pancakes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tulipa and the warm hospitality.

Room Tip: The canal suite was the size of an apartment with a great view

Stayed at the at Tulipa for two days.
The hotel is very well located in Amsterdam, between the Jordan area and the Museum area. I have visited Amsterdam a couple of times and this is one of the best place to be.
Plus it has a very easy access to the rest of the city thanks to a convenient Tram station very close.
Host are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast very good and definitely made of quality products.
The room was lovely, with a tasty decoration and lot of space on two levels.
Plus some small details such as the complimentary red and white bottles of wine or the Nespresso coffee machine. Small details but make you feel at home.
Great place!

We stayed at Tulipa in late November, and can not recommend the B and B enough. Up until now we have always stayed in hotels but because of the great ratings and price we decided to go for this B and B. We were not disappointed. Arriving earlier than expected the room was ready and we where greated by the owner Paula who was very friendly with loads of advice for our stay. The room was the standard river view room but was large, perfectly clean and comfortable. We could not have wanted more. I really like the little touch of having dvds available to watch when you want some down time. The location of the B and B is just right, within easy walking distance of everything. We missed breakfast the first morning but managed to get up at a sensible time the second day, with everything supplied that you could need. We had a great time and if we visit Amsterdam in the future we would not hesitate to stay at this great b and b again. Thanks.

Stayed at the Tulipa from 28th - 31st March in the canal view room. We found the hosts, Paula & Jan, friendly and helpful especially with their suggestions for meals out and transport information. Breakfasts were very good with a selection of cereals, cold meats and cheese, fresh fruit salad and yoghurt. Paula also cooks a fresh egg dish each morning, we had an tasty omelette and also smoked salmon and scrambled egg. Rooms are a good size, large comfy bed and a large modern bathroom with separate shower and cool double sink. Unfortunately we had snow and it was very cold during our stay so the balcony seating didn't get used as much as we'd hoped! We went out to the Gashouder one evening so knew that we would miss breakfast the next day - Paula left fresh fruit, yoghurt, granola and fresh milk in our room so we could get some vitamins when we finally woke up, a nice touch. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the Tulipa.

Situated between the museum district and the 9 streets, this guest house offers ease of access to all the sights of Amsterdam. The owners are very friendly and offer good advice on sights to see and places to visit. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is fresh and prepared on order.

We enjoyed a fabulous weekend break in Amsterdam for my husband's birthday. The Tulipa lived up to its 5 star rating on Trip Advisor with excellent personal service. Paula and Jan, our hosts, were very attentive from their initial greeting with tea and coffee and a quick guide to Amsterdam and all it had to offer, to advising and booking restaurants for us and generally being very plesant, accomodating and friendly throughout our stay. The room (canal view) was lovely, spacious, nicely decorated, immaculate and the large bathroom was very clean and modern. The large bed was very comfy and it was nice to be able to sit at the small coffee table and chairs, looking out of the beautiful huge canal house windows over the canals watching the hustle and bustle of Amsterdammers. The room had tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary mini bar. The breakfasts were lovely, plentiful and varied with a different hot dish each day. We had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs one day and pancakes another, delicious! Even the retro detailing in the breakfast room was a delight, including an original fully working iMac! Would definately recommend Tulipa and Amsterdam- but watch out for the cyclists, they don't take any prisoners!
