This was a wonderful hotel to stay in for our 2 nights in Amsterdam. It was outside the loud part of the city and right next to the #12 bus, which takes you everywhere you need to be. So easy to get around and such a nice hotel! Clean, modern rooms and comfortable beds. Great breakfast too. We also loved that the parking was underground and not in a lot. It's the cheapest parking you'll find in Amsterdam - only 15euro for the day. Thank you, Golden Tulip!

My husband and I travelled to Amsterdam with our 15 months toddler in April 2013. We took the train to the relevant station, and then took a taxi to the hotel because strong winds were kicking up massive amounts of sand! But we found out later that it was a short walk from the hotel to the train station :-)
Our room was very clean and very spacious, which was great for the toddler. The tram was only a minute from the hotel, and it was required to take two trams to the city center. Breakfast was included in the price and I must say that it was a wonderful buffet. We enjoyed the dinner buffet at the hotel on the first night. Very nice with good choice, but too expensive to repeat the next two nights. Since it was a little out of the way, it was very difficult to find a good restaurant or even a decent grocery shop.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel without hesitation!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room facing the road. It is a relatively quiet area so no problem at all.

A hotel with all the needs. Good, clean rooms, good beds and coffee machine. Having a shower and bathtub combined is always a spatial compromise. 2 minutes from tram stop and 20 min from Central Amsterdam Station. Friendly reception staff makes an excellent start of the day.

We stayed for 3 nights end of March-early April en route to a River Cruise through the Netherlands & Belgium. We arrived very early, 09:30, and did not expect to have our room ready but the friendliest reception person said no problem & immediately checked us in. After a couple of quick winks we headed back down to reception where again we were given exceptional assistance on how to get the tram downtown and maps etc.
The breakfast buffet the following morning was superb if a tad expensive at 15 euros each but it is Amsterdam and it's not the least expensive city for dining out. Our room was the larger "comfort room" which beside the bigger space also included some amenities that were useful including a free bottle of wine with supper in the restaurant.
Overall we would rate this property very highly as we had excellent service { reception staff were fantastic }, a spotlessly clean room, good wifi & a good , if somewhat pricey, restaurant. If we are ever back in Amsterdam we would be happy to stay there again. Highly recommended!!

I recently returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel and can't say enough nice things about it. The front desk staff was efficient and helpful, the housekeeping staff kept my room neat and very clean. The DREAM restaurant had lovely food and a great staff to help in choosing what to eat. While the hotel is a bit out of the way, it's an easy 12-15 minute tram ride to the center of Amsterdam (tram stop is across the street from the hotel). I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there on my next trip to Amsterdam.

7 Days, 6 Nights at the Golden Tulip Amsterdam West. Other than a few very minor gliches...like no mat on the shower floor--which they took care of immediately, and the expensive dining--other than these, we had a ball. Oh one other thing...6 nights of draw space in the room didn't quite stretch...so part of that stayed in the suitcase...which really wasn't a major problem. Boy, did the heated bathroom floor made you forget a lot of those little things---about 90 degrees all the time--WOW. We booked via Expedia---who forgot to remind the hotel that we'd paid for the room in-advance. It only took the front desk about 5 minutes to verify. In fact, because we paid for the hotel at the time we paid for the flight, by some strange means, at checkout, we actually got back about 30 Euro. Make note: I believe the main reason we enjoyed this hotel, location, etc., we because we did so much homework---before we left home, that by the time we arrived, we only had to ask minimum directions. LANGUAGE: 90% of the time most things we read were written in 3 languages: German, Spanish and English...Most everyone we talked too spoke English. We arrived in Amsterdam about 6:45 a.m. giving us a relaxed time to eat breakfast in the Airport, Understand the difference between the Trains and TRAMS portion of the airport...where the ticket-windows were, and etc. Oh, we did buy some Euros before we left the States. We departed out of Newark, NJ, but came back stateside via DC. Before we departed Amsterdam we checked to see if we could cash in our Euro in DC. Guess what...they had no office in DC, so we cashed in at the Airport before departing Amsterdam. By taking the Train (7,5 Euro for 2), and then taking TRAM #12 (3,8 Euro), it took about 45 minutes altogether...most of that riding...leaving the Airport about 8:15a and reaching the hotel about 9:00. (Expect to walk about 2 blocks between changing from Train to TRAM to reach the hotel). The hotel was very nice about locking up our suitcases until our room was ready (Maids don't come to work until 9 a.m.. So, we bought a 2-day TRAM/BUS Pass and we took off on a #12 TRAM ride again. Walked out the front door of the hotel, turning to right and walked 1 block to the next corner. Cross the street, and the TRAMS stop is about 50 feet from that intersection. After riding about 6-7 stops, we got off and switched to a #13 or #14 (at the same stop where we got off), and took it further into town..in fact all the way to City Central Station. All TRAMS run about every 7-15 minutes--from 6 a.m. to Midnight. On the TRAMS, you always swipe your pass getting on, and getting off---every time. Along this same route, we saw, stopped and tried so many little restaurants, sights, museums, bakeries, souvenir shops, grocery stores...not to mention SUBWAYS, MCDONALDS, BURGER KING, AND KFC (walking sometimes 3-4 blocks from the TRAM stop. Sometimes when we weren't sure where to switch TRAMS, we'd asked the conducts and they readily helped us. PLENTY OF GOOD (FREE) COMPUTERS IN THIS HOTEL...and many Laptop connects in the lounge as well. TV was truly INTERNATIONAL..in languages as well. There were no Refrige or Microwave, but the bars and restaurant downstairs gave me all the ice I wanted, sometimes twice a day. We found the Tangerines in most stores were unforgettably--SWEET, and seedless too. WARNING: At least 4-5 days before you depart the states, notify your bank or credit union that you may use your card where you're overseas (Its part of your protection) I tested my CU...used my debit card in a grocery store..about 8-9 Euros...got back stateside and found a charge from that grocery store of about $12...which was an excellent rate of exchange.ONE BIG NEGATIVE: Couldn't afford the hotel's 19,5 Euro per person Breakfast...nor the 29,5 per person Buffet Dinner. Many of the restaurants we saw allowed us to eat nicely at about anywhere from 6,5 to 10 Euro for a very good meal...I was able to rediscover my love for Chicken Schnitzel (German). We found a Street-side Open Market that stretched about 8 blocks..where you could actually do a little bargaining. Even there, the food was good...all kinds of meats, sandwiches, pastries, and Belgium Waffles. Be sure and plan to do the 6-hr WINDMILL tour to the north of Amsterdam...most educational. Those Windmills put the Netherlands a 1/2 century ahead of most of Europe in production of so many things...ship-building being just one of them...and how they used Levies is amazing.
All-in-All...EVERY STAFF MEMBER was out-of-there-way friendly and helpful...Oh, one other thing. You can buy all your tour-tickets, TRAMS/BUS passes, etc at the front desk. And when you buy your tour tickets there, it includes the tour company picking you up at the hotel. HOWEVER, you do have to find your own way back to the hotel after the tour brings you back downtown...hence, REMEMBER YOUR TRAM #.Should you run low on euros, the front desk will give you euros for your dollars. Also, we took over 300 photos between the two of us. We also did the 1-day tour to Brussels...which included about 6-8 blocks of walking to the town center and being on-your-own for about 4-5 hours.
Oh, when you enter your room, you immediately place your room-key in a little slot on the wall by the door. This affords you use of all your electrical things in the room---INCLUDING YOUR TV. (smile). My wife was watching TV when I decided to go get some ice. Without thinking, I open the door--grabbed my door-key out of the slot-- and the entire room went INSTANTLY DARK, and my wife screamed. Needless to say, I only did that once!
Boy, I sure miss that Bathroom (heated) floor. NICE! And by the way, In Amsterdam, zero "0" is the ground/lobby floor, not the 1st floor.

Room Tip: Go for higher up... and away from the Elevators.
