Not Central, Not Bad

Good size room, clean and comfortable
Out of the centre, about 10 minutes by bus from the Centraal Station
Better value for money than city centre hotels
Staff friendly and helpful.
On check out they asked about the stay. When told that the shower floods the bathroom floor they just laughed - why do they bother to ask?

Historical Traveler Reviews WestCord Art Hotel Amsterdam****

Its great

from

I got a very nice deal of 90€ per night and believe me its worth it. If u have a car then this is the place. Its away from the center but its amazing the rooms are great and hotel is peacefull.

Not in the heart of town, but I'll take it.

from

Very good standard. 10 minutes away from downtown Amsterdam by taxi. I travel to Amsterdam often for work. The hotel standard is very good. The rooms in the new wing are big and modern. The only bad thing is that it is not in the heart of the city. But a 10 euro taxi ride solves this. I have stayed at the SAS Radisson in the heart of Amsterdam. For half the price, I take the Amsterdam Art hotel any time.

Watch out for the other reviewers' advice!

from

Bus 48 from Sloterdijk station does NOT run after 6pm. So if you're arriving later than 6pm go to Central Station and catch bus #22.It IS far out from the city, so add an hour and a half in travel time onto your day for commuting. The walk to town in the morning was nice, but I recommend taking the bus back at night!The hotel itself was clean and the staff professional. Although I thought breakfast for £15 per person was a bit steep, and so bought breakfast in the nearby Jordan area instead.

Great dutch neghborhood

from

GREATHOTEL!! we enjoyed our stay, located outside the hustle and bustle of centeral amsterdam but only a short walk from city center and easy to access by bus #22 , to get to the hotel by cab from sciphol is about 40 euro or can be reached by train to sloterdijk station then bus 48 (weekdays) nearest snack shop "dire hoek" is delicious! nearest coffeeshop Hevenly is just off sparrndammerstraat and they have some of the best prices on smoke in holland! also just steps away is museam het schip and the fascinating building of the amsterdam school! also just steps away from an all night BP station for a quick snack! don't let the lazy people fool you, this hotel is an easy walk from downtown! and who among us doesn't need a little exersize anway!

Not near downtown but....

from

This is a nice hotel. The bar was great. The staff were friendly as well. I stayed here Nov. 2002. The rooms were nice and clean. The only thing I did not like was the distance to most attractions in Amsterdam.

The bus stops near the hotel, but its a long walk if you do not take the bus. Other than that, it was quiet and clean.

Golden Tulip Art, The Tulip Inn; Nice place, nice price

from

Upon arriving, the first thing I noticed was, " This isn't as close to anything as I first imagined when I initially made my reservation". The second thing I noticed was the art work on the walls, very nice touch. But first let's address the location. What first seemed to be an out of the way location was actually a short bus ride to the Centrum, the heart of the transportation system in Amsterdam. Multi-day passes can be purchased allowing you unlimited passage on all trolleys and buses. These passes can be purchased for a reasonable rate from the Tourist Bureau located outside Central Station. This purchase comes with free entry to almost every museum and more discounts from area merchants than one could ever possibly use. This purchase it a MUST. I purchased a 2 day pass for 36 Euros and it was well worth it for the transportation alone. Back to the hotel, even with it's out of the way location, the property was more than sufiicent for either the business or leisure traveler. The staff was helpful and courteous and the rooms, while a bit small, were quite nice for the price we paid. Reminescent of a nice dorm room, the room I stayed in was quite sufficient for my needs.

Good Hotel

from

Good clean modern hotel. It is currently having an extension added and the rear of hotel is being modified but it had no effect on our stay (will be complete in 2004). Also has a good bar and breakfast gallery (the breakfast is all or nothing as you can't just have a coffee). Is some way from the city centre but the public transport to the hotel is regular and runs to around midnight. Internet access in main reception area, not free but available 24/7.

Mislead

from

The map to the Tulip Inn is very deceiving, especially for first time visitors of Amsterdam. Thinking that once we got to the hotel we could take a stroll down to the centre of town - were we ever disappointed - it is about 30 mins walk and 10 mins by bus - waiting nearly half an hour for the reliable public transport. There was mentioned a shuttle service from the airport to the hotel - this is non-existent and the hotel staff are not afraid to tell you so. The hotel itself is though in good nick.

Off the beaten path

from

Just a little too far from downtown Amsterdam for me but the hotel is quite modern and has a great bar. The staff and service were great. Internet terminal open all night and parking underground is very secure. Vey picturesque. Loved the colorfully painted cows out front.

Nice hotel

from

Amsterdam is a very "touristy" city and it was the first city where we had to buy a map (usually in the other European cities we went to, we got free ones). We had a hard time locating this hotel because it was not on any of the maps (just outside the map's drawings) but the friendly folks at the train station helped us out. In order to get to this hotel, you need to take a bus. The location of it is in a nice neighborhood northwest of the station and not in the grimy area of the city just outside of the station. It is a new brick hotel (you can tell) and the lobby is nice as well. You have to give a deposit when you check-in but the rooms are very nice, very contemporary, and very clean. The bathrooms are very nice too. It is reasonably priced and a great comfort to go to at the end of the day after walking the streets of Amsterdam.

... their apartment, and then get back out to the airport in time to meet her. Plus, Frank had been tossing up whether to get a tattoo of a windmill on his **** like Fred when they got back to Amsterdam. So they decided the best thing to do would be for Bruce to get off at the airport station to meet Audrey, while Frank and Fred would go into Amsterdam and search for a tattoo place! It would mean they'd be able to pass the time till Bruce had collected Audrey and then get to the ...

This museum celebrates those who resisted against the Nazis but is respectful to those who adjusted and collaborated. I was fascinated at each stage throughout the museum and learnt a lot about Holland's occupation. They have also created a juniors section for children to learn about the occupation in a ...

The ship is docked in Amsterdam, our last port. What I will see today is the reason I came to Holland. Yesterday, as we were passing fields of tulips, Paul gave us some figures for Dutch agricultural production: Holland is the 3rd largest agricultural exporter in the world after the US and France; horticulture-cultivated flowers, bulbs, fruits and vegetables brings in 12 billion Euros annually, nearly 25% of all revenue from agricultural export. Not surprisingly, Holland is ...
