... walk doesn’t sound bad, but with a 50 pound suitcase and no solid idea of where you’re heading, it’s quite far.

I booked my hotel on points, and it is quite nice. The Hotel Pulitzer is about a block away from the Anne Frank House. It is made from several converted canal houses, which are quite narrow each. It actually goes the entire block backwards (so you can access it from two different streets that face out to two ...

... 0600.

I got to Amsterdam, and to the hotel by 0930. I felt like I’d put in a full day already! It was chilly and blustery, but the sun was shining, so I left my stuff and set off. First stop: second breakfast. My hotel is a 10-minute walk from Anne Frank Huis, in the Jordaan area. There are lots of little cafes, and yes, brown cafes, too (where you can buy marijuana to go with your coffee) but ...

... canals every year mainly due to college students throwing bikes in that are not properly locked in the first week of classes (they are fully within their rights to do this shockingly).

We went on a free walking tour which allowed us to see the beauty of the city. We began in the town square which housed the royal palace, now a museum, to the Red Light District. There were prostitutes dressed very scantily in small window spaces trying to lure ...

... stop the sails, climb up into the top of the windmill and turn it around. The top is mounted on 120 rollers and the operator turns it by hand. It takes about half an hour to turn 180. That's why they all have two doors!

The sail blades swish by at 80kph at the edge and they can add cloth to the blades to double the speed. Windmills always sit on top a small stream and can pump 60,000 litres of water per per minute. It rains 320 days a year and most land in the area is two ...

Not Central, Not Bad

Reviewed Jun 19, 2012

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.
