Can't complain about the service, staff or location of this hotel. First went there for honeymoon in 1995 and have been back 4 times since. Booked again this year for another anniversary. Room was clean, tidy and well made up. Excellent bathroom! I have a "thing" about clean hotel bathrooms. As a small hotel 3 star goes, I would say I've stayed in 4 star that didn't match up to their standard.
Friendly, quiet and comfortable

We were suprised at how nice the hotel was. Tasteful, modern decor, spacious with all the amenities you could hope for. The restaurant only serves breakfast which isn't very exciting, but when you consider all of the resaurants and cafes that you have on your doorstep, the restaurant at the hotel will not really concern you. i would most definetly choose to stay here again.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Eden Amsterdam Centre Hotel

dont go

from dharma82
When I booked my hotel via internet I was really happy about the hotel, two day before I was going I confirmed my booking, the room seemed so nice and modern on the pictures and the location was perfect I had all sight seeing planed around its location. When I Got to the hotel after a day traveling the receptionist greetings were 'Sorry, but the hotel is fully booked'. In the Lobby three girls Maltese as well had the same problem.

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 hotel

from fizzybubbles
Stayed at the Tulip Inn for 2 nights. We had 2 single rooms, both comfortable and clean. Beds were cosy, showers powerful and hot! The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was within easy reach of tram and water bus. Although the weather was cold and wet we enjoyed our trip on the museum boat, that came right past the Tulip Inn. I have to recommend the NEMO science centre for anyone with kids who love 'hands-on ' learning with lots of buttons to press and fun (also great for big kids!!!). But AVOID the 3D Amsterdam experience. This is very disappointing, a waste of time and money.
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 location

from jambon
Superb location near the tram stop. Away from the noise of the centre but close enough to Leidseplein nightlife/cafes etc. Rooms spacious and clean. For the single traveller who really just wanted a bed for the night this was perfect but would be great for couples also.

A nice stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here for 5 nights in early November.
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
Well... where should I begin?! Me and my boyfriend who are both 22 years old have just recently come back from Amsterdam! We went over there on 25th November for a long weekend! We actually stayed at the Tulip Inn for 3 nights… I’m not sure how much I paid for the hotel room itself, but flight from London to Amsterdam and a 3 night stay in the Tulip Inn cost a total of £370 for the both of us so it wasn’t too bad I guess?!

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.

A Fine Little Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
A fine little hotel within easy walking distance of many prime attractions (Van Gogh, National Museum, expensive shopping district)but far enough from the hustle and bustle of the Dam (main city center area) to be quiet. Hotel staff are polite, friendly and very helpful (buy tickets at the front desk for the museums). Take the #370 bus from Schipol Airport to the Leidsplein stop. (costs about 3.50 Euros/person and is much cheaper then the taxis) Get off at Leidsplein, then face the Marriott. The hotel is on the right side of the Marriott and about a two minute walk from it. (Watch out for bikes when walking at all times, but especially when crossing streets!)The #1, 2 and 5 tram stops are also at Leidsplein, which will take you downtown to the Dam or to the Central Station in a few minutes. The rooms are small by US standards but twins are adequate and have most conveniences. We asked for a non-smoking room (we got #420)which was on the top floor and very quiet. The view did not overlook the canal but it was fine.The hotel has a free Internet connection in the lobby area. The only small issue is that they will automatically charge you for breakfast every day (13 Euros each) -- just tell them at checkout when you actually ate there (if you do at all -- it's expensive and there are other choices relatively nearby -- try the Pancake Restaurant a few blocks away) and they will adjust the charges with no problems. All in all this was a great, economical place to stay -- clean, helpful and a retreat from the bustling city. We suggest that you reconfirm your reservations on the phone or on the Internet (they are responsive)before you go.

Book here at your peril...

from helene2
My party of 6 people was in Amsterdam last weekend and had a near identical experience to the previous reviewer. Despite booking well in advance we were informed on arrival that the hotel had overbooked and that we had been transferred to a sister hotel. The hotel we ended up in was perfectly adequate (obviously we have no way to compare the two)but this chain is cynically taking bookings above the rooms they have available on their most appealing hotel in order to gain business for their other hotels. My advice would be - do not book here as who knows where you will actually end up!

Would of been good!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Unfortunately I did not get to stay in this hotel even though I booked it 6 weeks in advance. I arrived to be told in no uncertain terms and with no hint of apology that they had overbooked and that myself and my friends were being moved to a different hotel. I found the attitude aloof to say the least. I was however even more upset to find that the hotel we were moved to was on the other side of the city in a much less desirable and accessible area. The reason for booking the tulip in the forst place was for location. Also the best western hotel we were moved to was clearly inferior to the Tulip. I found this whole experience to be dissapointing and left a bad tatse in the mouth. I think it is a disgrace to accept a booking and accept payment and then move people. I will certainly not use any tulip hotel in the future.

Great Deal, Great Location

from ChicagoAlli
I found this hotel after having a terrible time booking two nights in Amsterdam for early September, 2005. Everything was either sold out or incredibly expensive. I booked this hotel based on the recommendations from this site and felt they were an accurate representation of what to expect.

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 again

from sgritt
This hotel was a good find. The room was clean and nicely decorated, yet small--typical for Europe. The air conditioning worked well, but is only in some rooms and cost us an extra 20 Euro per night to guarantee a room with A/C, but was well worth it in the 80F+ degree heat. We did not eat at the hotel, as we found other less expensive and more appetizing options--try the Pancake Corner off Leidseplein Square. The location was very good for the main art museums, Vondelpark, and Leidseplein Square, which has a lot of nightlife. It is a bit farther to get to other tourist attractions, but very close to the Leidseplein Square tram, so there were no issues with location. The neighborhood was very quiet as well and beds were comfortable, so we slept well. The bathroom was very clean and had nice toiletries. The big bonus was the free internet usage on the main floor, which was very helpful. This is a good solid value for an expensive city, but it not in the center of it all, whcih we liked, but others may not. Would consider staying here again.

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!
