Well, I am at a complete loss of words trying to re-cap my stay here. It sure has been more than I ever expected.

The canal cruise was most certainly a highlight. The canal homes with decorated facades was an unbelievable sight! They have a private boat that departs every thirty minutes, so even if you missed it it'll be back around quite …

... after everybody was rounded up it was back on the bus and off to the clog factory, it was quite interesting watching the clogs being carved, the machine and process was a little like having a spare key cut for the house, of course the machine and models were much larger. And yes I did buy two pair of colourful clogs one for Sue and one for myself, I thought my pair would make a good talking piece sitting near the door. After that ...

... try any of that. It was also pouring with rain and the wind was really really strong so we tried to just stay inside apart from when we had to make a run for the bus. Last stop of the day was Zaanse Schans which is in Zaanstad and it is a Working Mill Museum. By this time it was bucketing down so Scott go off the bus and ran around but o re half of us stayed on and kept dry. We could see the windmills from the bus so that ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Dam Square Inn Amsterdam

    Great Location - renevation in progress

    from

    Amsterdam is expensive as far as lodging. The tulip inn at dam square has a great location as far as night life goes. We had 2 rooms. One had not been updated and was alright. The other had a renovated bathroom and was very european and nice. I stayed in a boat in college and now that I am in my late 20's I would not stay in a boat or hostel. The tulip inn was one of the more reasonable priced hotels and I would rate it as a 7-8

    Great Location

    from

    I stayed at this hotel for Easter 2004 and would definately stay there again. Room was basic but very clean and comfortable, bathroom again was pretty basic but spotlessly clean, lovely towels and the power from the shower was great. Staff were more than friendly and helpful. The corriders etc were in need of brightening up and a new lick of paint but these didnt make any lasting impression on me either way. The price was great, the location was fantastic, the staff were friendly and helpful and I would definately stay there again. For me it is the location that wins every time - I was on a cheap and cheerful city break and wanted to be close to everything and I was. As well as being close to the nightlife and the shops you were also very close to where the boats and coach trips left from (another bonus) so a winner all round. I would add that there were some hotels in the same area that looked exceptionally nice but these were in a different price range.

    Average hotel ~ paying for location !

    from

    Tulip Inn / Dam Sq ~ Hotel reception & breakfast room is lovely, but once you are past these two areas the rest of the hotel is a bit shabby. The room we were initally given was on the ground floor was very dark & dingy. We were moved to a room on the top floor, which was much brighter but not particularly clean. I chose this hotel for it's location as I had never visited Amsterdam before as I thought being close to Dam Sq would be ideal but as Amsterdam is very accessible by foot I would recommend staying in the following areas instead ~ Rembrandtplein, Leidesplien or Mueseumplein...nearly forgot to say hotel staff are nice & helpful but you are definitely paying for location.

    Ok

    from

    We want to Amsterdam on the 8th March, for 3 nights. This was our fifth vist to the city. Our first time staying at this hotel.The Hotel was clean and the staff very nice and friendly. Our room window only opened a small bit, which i didn't like. The bathroom has no bath, just showers. The breakfast was good. Plenty of choice to eat. We picked this hotel because we got a great deal, if i had to pay full price, i would rather stay elsewhere. There seems to be a sour smell outside the main door of the hotel, this is not pleasent.

    Value for money

    from

    exellent hotel freindly atmosphere and close to everywhere you want to be. book it you wont be disapointed.

    Clean, Quiet, Central Location

    from

    After looking at a ton of hotels we decided on the Tulip Inn because of the price and the location. When we arrived on a rainy Sunday afternoon. As soon as we exited the train station we got caught in the middle of the Santa Clause parade. However, we still had no trouble negotiating the crowd to find the hotel.We were only in Amsterdam one day on our way to Egypt, but we would definately stay there again.

    Highly recommended!

    from

    From this seasoned traveller's perspective, a great hotel. The rates are very reasonable and the rooms have everything you need - clean, comfortable, and quiet. Too quiet almost - I stayed in December of 2002 and slept with the window open (the heat works VERY well - a little too hot, but we compensated with the open window). I was shocked and amazed how quiet this city is during the evenings. Anyhow - great location, the staff was pleasant, nice clean rooms, and good rates. Higly recommended.

    First time Traveller

    from

    For a first time traveller I was worried that I was going to get ripped off or treated like just another tourist. But I can say truly as an avereage blue collar tradesman I was treated as the best guest and I was so utterly impressed with the service. These people go above and beyond the call of duty to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. I would recommend this place to anyone young or old who truly wishes to experience Amsterdam and everything it has to offer. Don't miss it! I have not one regret after spending thousands on my first vacation.Happy Trails and Cheers to the staff at the Dam square Tulip Inn

    Great Location ... good hotel

    from

    Location location location!

    This is one of if not the best locations in the city. You are in the middle of everything, yet on a very quiet little street (Gravenstraat) behind the new church.

    Rooms are clean and good-sized for Amsterdam, staff is helpful. There is a lift/elevator. Small bar in lobby is open effectively 24/7 as desk clerk(s) double as "bartender."

    Breakfast is nothing special. Skip it and go 1 block over to Nieuwendijk/Dam shops.

    A little overpriced this year (2002/2003) but the 20+ Euros extra you pay/night are for the amazing location. If you're planning on walking a lot in Amsterdam center from Jordaan to Red Light, this is the place to stay.

    So Central

    from

    The Tulip Inn, Dam Square is situated in a quiet back street right behind the 'New Church' in Dam Square. You really couldn't wish for a more central location. The main shopping street is a 30 second walk away. The main Railway station is barely a 10 minute walk away. The accomodation is basic but clean. My room had nice shower room, colour Television (which received British TV channels as well as pay per view movies) and Tea and coffee making facilities. I was there in February 2002 and during my stay all the beds were replaced. The view form my hotel window was non-existant but this didn't really bother me. There is a small hotel bar and the staff are extremely helpful and speak fantastic English (as does everybody in Amsterdam!). The breakfast is basic (toast, cereal etc) and you help yourself to what you want. I would certainly be happy to stay there again.
