Historical Traveller Reviews of Eden Amsterdam Centre Hotel
dont gofrom dharma82
Not a nice way to start a holiday. we were allocated to another Hotel Eden Best Western were we where given an apartment with no lift facilities and the apertment was on 3rd floor. However, service and cleaniness were good.
If you're thinking of visiting Amsterdam, go its beautiful, just avoid Tulip inn amsterdam centre, later on i got to know that this problem happens very frequently.
Clean, welcoming hotelfrom fizzybubbles
We had a lovely meal at the Asian restaurant 2 doors down from the Hard Rock Cafe. Excellent food in tasteful surroundings.
I would definitely stay at the Tulip Inn again, great value for money.
Perfect locationfrom jambon
A nice stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location was good: it's easy to get to by tram and leidseplein, kalverstraat and the museums are within walking distance. The single room in top floor (#406) was nice and wasn't facing the street so there was no traffic noise and had a good sleep.
Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on that.
t ask for a better hotel, location, service, atmosphere... list goes on!from Annie83
We thought we’d be brave and attempt the Netherlands public transportation and it was straight forward! We landed in Schiphol airport at 8pm and as you walk through arrivals your at the Schiphol airport station! There were tickets machines where you can purchase train tickets but it only take euro coins or cards! A train ticket into Amsterdam Central Station cost €3.40 pp (if I rightly remember)! And it only took 15 – 20mins! We then had to get the tram to Leidseplein where the hotel is situated! You can either get a No. 1, 2 or 5 tram which cost €1.60 pp which was very reasonably!
The hotel is a few minutes walk from the tram stop! The hotel is located away from the main Leidseplein square area where all the night life goes on but it was a good thing because you was away from all the hustle and bustle and got a decent nights' kip!
Arriving at the hotel we were very surprised cos it looked very modern compared to its neighbouring hotels from the outside! The front desk people were very friendly and courteous! We checked in and everything was fine! We got a non smoking room on the 4th floor… our room number was 423! We had to walk through the lobby and bar area where there was also free internet access section with 24hr vending machines that sells snacks... to access the lift to go to our floor! The prices for beverages were same as the main shops! Security was good as you needed your room key to access the lift!
We was very delighted with our room… even though looking out on the window it wasn’t a magnificent view… the room itself was so cosy! Yes, it was small… but most European city hotel rooms are! This hotel is by far the best European city break hotel we’ve stayed in! It was so modern… you had flat screen TV hanging on the wall! The bathroom was spacious! We had a power shower! There was an hairdryer built into the walls! The wardrobe was spacious... enough storage for both our clothes! There was also a safety deposit box which was free!
Housekeeping was done everyday! Fresh cleaned towels were provided everyday too!
Staying in Leidseplein was far better then staying in Amsterdam square! Leidseplein had all the night life and it was walking distance to shops and places to eat! We spent most of our time in Leidseplein because it was better then the square! You had much more of a variety of things to do! If your a football fan and can’t bare to miss a game away from home (even though your on holiday) which my boyfriend is (and a major Arsenal fan who made us walk all over Amsterdam to find a place that showed Arsenal vs. Blackburn) then your in luck! There’s an English pub right next to Burger King in Leidseplein square where they show every premiership game! When we was there, there was like 5 games playing at once! There was loads of screens in there so you can watch all the games at the same time if you wanted! It was surreal! But an experience!
We went on a canal bus route which was outside the hotel opposite the tram station to the Anne Frank house, the canal boat stopped right outside the Anne Frank house and that cost €4 pp on the canal bus route! The Anne Frank house was a bit disappointing as the annex itself was just empty rooms!
Shopping in Amsterdam is expensive! Food and drink too! All the souvenir shops all more or less sell the same thing!
The only downside of the Tulip Inn was that housekeeping was done at 8:30am! So from a long night the last thing you want to do is being woken up to a knock on your door hearing “house keeping”! But to resolve this… just stick your “do not disturb” sign on the door before you go sleep! It helped only a little bit as the walls are quite thin and you can hear all the noise that they make on the landing and people’s door slamming and walking in the corridor! But that was the only down side!
All in all… Amsterdam was fun! Very cold during this time of year! Tulip Inn topped it off because it was situated in a great location! The hotel itself was amazing! The staff were polite! The hotel is clean and bright! I thought I should write one of these reviews cos as a frequent traveller I’m always wary of the hotels I would be staying in and reviews on TripAdvisor helps give a better picture and I just hope mine helps in anyway it can.

Book here at your peril...from helene2
Would of been good!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great Deal, Great Locationfrom ChicagoAlli
The rooms are very small, but efficient, clean, modern (flat screen T.V.). I was staying alone in a double room (upgraded by the front desk from a single) and frankly it would have been cramped for even two people. The teeny tiny bathroom had modern appliances but the sink was so small that it was virtually impossible to wash my face or brush my teeth without hitting the glass shelf above it. However, the small shower had good water pressure and plenty of hot water.
I did not have an air conditioned room, but the fan provided enough circulation (high temps were in the low 70sF) that I was not uncomfortable.
Overall, I likened this place to a European equivalent of a Hampton Inn (albeit with much smaller rooms!)--designed for a business traveler with just the right amenities. The free internet in the lobby was very key.
Location I thought was ideal. I would not have wanted to stay near Central Station and all the cheesy crappy souvenier shops. The location near the museums allowed me to walk to many attractions, and the tram was easy enough to take you to other parts of the city.
I would definitely stay here again if it was just me. The value is great, location great. I would think twice if I was traveling with someone else simply because the rooms are really, really small.
would recommend and would stay againfrom sgritt
Top Local Tips for Amsterdam
Use the train! Dont bother with a taxi from the Schipol if your staying in central Amsterdam. Get the train from Schipol to the Amsterdam Central. It takes 15 minutes an cost 3,60 euros!
Lots of walking Bring some good walking shoes, be prepared to get a little lost. Avoid the outside urinals and if alone avoid narrow alleyways!!
Seeing Amsterdam Public transportation is great after you get used to it and find you way through. We thought about bike rental but, you should get acclimated first. Saw 3 bike accidents in 1-l/2 days! Be careful!
