Fgumuscapa stayed here on Aug 27, 2009 during their trip titled: Fgumuscapa's Colorful Travel.
We arrived in Amsterdam after having an hour delay, so this put is into Amsterdam around 11pm. After getting our luggage, catching the train into town, then finding the tram to take us to our hotel we ended up at our hotel a little after midnight only to find out that they overbooked and all the rooms were full for that night. So the man at the …

That evening went for a stroll down the red light district - little to see but young girl in underwear. A lot of lookers but few takers. The streets were full of people so the area is popular on a Friday night.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampshire Hotel - Theatre District Amsterdam
The Tulip Inn in Amsterdam was an amazing place for the price. As a budget traveller in Europe - this was the best place at which I had the chance to stay. It is in a great location - away from the annoyance of tourists by the red light district (but within walking distance), and a block away from the entertainment of Leidesplein Square (clubs, bars, restaurants & COFFEE SHOPS galore). The staff was very friendly and accomodating - immediately offering us one of the few rooms with a balcony. And it actually had an elevator (though quite a tight squeeze for even two people) which I found a rarity in European hotels - at least the moderately priced ones. The room wasn't huge, but was very clean and modernly decorated and had a large & clean bathroom. Overall I would definitely recommend the Tulip Inn & would stay there again myself.
Some body from Tulip hotel cancel my reservation
I booked my Euro trip in advance. One of the city was Amsterdam.
I was in hotel on time and front desk checked reservation and said it is cancel. It was already third Europeen city in my trip. I never cancel my reservation. After arriving back home I communicate with (---) and they confirm that Tulip Hotel cancel my reservation.
So, think twice if you want to stay in Tulip hotel
Fantastic Little Hotel
All rooms fantastic, clean, and totally adorable. All the amenities you would need. Double room was nice size; single room was small but so adorable it didn't matter.
Chose this hotel for a long weekend in Amsterdam and didn't regret it. Great location, only 5 minutes walk from the tram stop at Leidsplan and similarly for one of the stops on the red line of the Canal Bus. The Van Gough and Rijksmuseum are virtually "round the corner" - about 10 minutes on foot. On arrival I used the Connexion shuttle bus from Schipol Airport, which stopped at the door. My departure flight was at 8 am which mean that I wasn't able to use the shuttle bus when leaving. Had to use the early morning tram and train to get to the airport, which all workd out fine.
We have recently returned from a short stay in Amsterdam. We looked at quite alot of accomodation on the internet before booking and I am pleased to say we definately made the right decision.
Small but felt luxurious
We spent most of our trip visiting friends and staying in unheated attics (in February), so maybe this seemed so wonderful because we had low standards. But it really was a nice little hotel, just a block outside of the center city, about a 20-25 minute walk from the train station, or a few minutes from the Leidseplein. As others have mentioned, the room was quite small, but was newly refurbished, with a modern, chic feel, and a sparkling clean bathroom (with shower only). We were on the back, with view of the heating units, so it's worth asking for something on the front, overlooking the canal. But then again, we paid only about $100 US, or 75 euro (through Priceline). The free internet was nice, and the staff was very gracious.
A friend and I stayed at the Tulip Inn in early April 2005. We enjoyed our stay at this newly refurbished hotel. Our room was one of the nicer rooms we've had in Europe. It was small, but stylishly furnished with modern furnishings. Our request for a canal view was granted at no extra charge. We booked through an online service and paid an average of 115 EUR/night. Bathroom was small with a standing shower. Hot water was good, but water pressure was less desirable. Rooms were cleaned daily, along with fresh towels. Other perks? A bar (drinks expensive) in the comfortable lounge area (chess, newspapers, snack machine), with free internet service and wireless connection! Reception staff was pleasant and helpful with restaurant recommendations and other inquiries. Skip the "breakfast buffet" for 13 EUR. There are so many other places to eat. I recommend a local, family-run restaurant, called the Hap Hmm. When you leave the hotel, take a left and take the first left. The restaurant is on the left hand side about the middle of the street. Prices were excellent for local Flemish dishes (open only for lunch through dinner).
Clean, excellent location
Fantastic location, very central and felt safe, 5 minutes walk from the main shops and eateries of the Leidseplein, plus a tram line. Small but clean rooms, a bathroom with a very nice hot shower and lots of towels. Breakfast was okay though didn't vary from day to day. Cable TV was great, with lots of channels in English. Would definately go back again. Good value for what we paid (approx 80 euros per night).
