“Good Location, great facilities...breakfast can be improved”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stayed there in May 2013 mainly because the hotels in amsterdam were too costly due to high season and proximity to keukenhof.

Hotel itself is near to Leiden train and bus stations and so it is easy to access Keukenhof and rest of Holland by train. The town of Leiden is picturesque and quite good for late evening walk and dinner. Overall a good experience

Was back in the Golden Tulip last week for 3 nights. The hotel is ideally located in Leiden and close to all the amenities that this city has to offer and the station. The hotel is nice and the staff are excellent, warm, friendly and very helpful with everything. The rooms are fine, warm, clean and comfortable and I have stayed in this hotel on a few occassions now. The bar is always busy in the evening and has a good atmosphere. Breakfast is fine, nothing outstanding and they could maybe change things slightly and offer some different choices as its been the exact same for the past year now. Maybe some different style of eggs, different cereal options, more choice of coffee. Would stay here again as the location is perfect and the staff and hotel are good.

Room Tip: Have stayed in many different types of room, the suites are nice and have plenty of room. Rooms to...

Stayed for two nights at a conference. Staff, bar, lunch and breakfast all excellent. Conference facilities very good although data projector bulb clearly in need of replacement.

But I've only given it average because of my room which is approaching its sell-by date, particularly the bathroom. Tile grout stained, shower intermittent and the traditional hopeless tiny hair dryer. I could get no heat from the air con in chilly April.

But it is a very convenient base for exploring Leiden and a very short walk from the station. So accept that its a rather tired 3 star and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: There may be refurbished rooms so worth asking on arrival. Room inspection recommended before unpack...

I stay in this hotel a lot for business purposes and highly recommend it. Last year they installed free wifi access from all rooms, which was great. The staff are always very helpful and the food is surprisingly good.

It's a good 4 star hotel.

I stayed in the hotel for one night. The whole hotel has a nice taste modern decoration but the restaurant has a more classic touch that respects the private space of the customers. The design of the room uses the tulip pattern very creatively, adding to the convenience in the room. There was hardly any device missing from the room standard equipment. The only weak point was the not so effective sound isolation from the other rooms, with the result that the tv sound from other rooms was audible in the rooms beside it. The wide assortment of goods offered in the breakfast buffet had very good quality.

Only a 200 meters walk from the Central Train Station, and 5-10 minutes from Leiden Downtown. The hotel is exactly the way you think a hotel should be: good service, good and clean hotel rooms, free wifi, convenient parking, an excellent break-fast buffet, more than enough place to sit down in the lobby, or to have a drink at the bar. And the price is fair.

I enjoyed my stay very much.

Room Tip: There are two hotels - Golden Tulip and Tulip-inn - that somehow have been merged. This review conce...

Good things: staff friendly and quite good restaurant.
I did not have slippers in my room and, being a 4 stars hotel, I would expect it. I asked at the reception and after a short discussion about what a 4* hotel should have or not, I have got them.
The dinner was excellent although a little bit expensive.
Bad things: pillows too high and rigid; after the first night, I have got a neck spasm that last few days
