Tulip Inn Amsterdam Riverside
Ranked #285 of 376 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 28 July 2011

The system was not running efficiently in the Amsterdam Inn we stayed. One member of staff was so unfriendly and ignorant. She wears a pair of glasses, middle-aged and supervisor looking. There was no kettle in the room for tea and coffee or even boiled water. The bathroom was dirty and there was blood on the lid of the bin which had not been cleaned during 72 hours when we stayed. We will certainly not be back. It's a shame.

We went to see Take That at the ArenA. The hotel was easy to find, and booked as we travelled by car and the city hotels were averaging around £50 per night parking. The hotel has a large free car park. Check in staff were more than helpful, checking us in quickly, providing directions & booking us a taxi the next night to the event. Travelled with another couple their room over looked the river which was great, but ours overlooked the road, but was ok, if a little noisy with the window open. The bar area looked ok, though we didn't use it, and the riverside seating area looked good, but it rained all the time so again we didn't get to use it. Rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. OK so the place could do with a little updating, but I read reviews all the time, and travel in the UK & abroad, and people need to start taking more notice of the star ratings. Many people these days expect 5 star for travelodge money. IT DOESN'T EXIST. You will have to put up with the odd issue at 3 star. Overall, our stay was great. I would go back again, which has to be the best recomendation. Metro is 5-10 minute walk away, and takes you to the central station in around 10-15 minutes, and staying a little out of the centre of Amsterdam is a lot more relaxing. 11 Euros for a 2 day all transport pass (Trams, Metro, Buses & local trains).

Room Tip: Request a river view room.

The worst hotel in the world, very run down, very unclean, spider in my bed, bathroom covered in hairs (not mine). Got moved rooms that night, but new room was the same minus the spider !
Would not recommend it at all.

The only quality by which we can evaluate the hotel is the service therfore it is the only parameter we have rated. Our daughter (11y) is traveling to the netherlands for a sports training camp.During her visit to the camp she and her team will be spending 1 night in amsterdam. The orders from the team were to book a room in a tulip hotel,since we had no idea there were several hotels by that name in amsterdam we booked the tulip inn. it took us 2 minutes to realize the mistake-that we have booked the wrong hotel-and ask the hotel to cancel the booking. But the answer we have received was that the roon cant be cancelled. We know that the mistake was ours but we would expect the hotel to show some basic understanding and consideration and cancel the booking. After all we cant take our daughter and put her in a hotel which is far from her other team member and far from the area they should be staying and let her manage by herself not knowing the language or the people.
We have expected the hotel to show some basic desency and take consideration of the situation and the fact that it took us only a few minutes to try cancel.
The managment and employees reaction and treatment of the issue was dissappointing and we have to pay now for a night we will not be staying at the hotel at all.
This kind of behavior to clients is despickable and to me it says exectly what guests mean to the hotel,money and nothing else.

Wouldnt stay there in any cost!

I was at the Tulip Riverside while I was attending a Conference at the Amsterdam Medical Centre.
Following was my experience:
1) Excellent Parking Space.
2) Reception counter - poor service, though we had booked in advance there was a great chaos on our arrival.
3)# Rooms: Lack a Fridge ,Coffee mug and my heater wasn't working. The shower kept on
leaking and the bathroom used to be wet perpetually.
#Being close to the road ,the noise level was high and occasionally I used to be woken
#Internet facility wasn't available when i wanted it most.
# Room service was abysmal.
# NO safe locker.
# Charging wall-socket at a very inconvenient place.
4) FOOD: BREAKFAST:Not up to the mark as it should be in any 3 Star hotel. You cant
get an omelette at breakfast. Dunno about lunch and dinner.
5) LOCATION: 20 minutes walk to the closest station. really out of the city.Taxi takes
30 Euros to take you to Amsterdam central.
6) Value for Money; Poor. (You pay the price of a 3 star get the service of a non-star

Check in could be better, however, not too bad. Hotel was not really in good state of maintenance, but as we understood, they were working on that. Nice place, great terrace on the river Gaasp. Breakfast quite reasonable. Hotel is not expensive for an Amsterdam hotel, parking is free of charge.

This hotel is situated just outside Amsterdam, the river is in the back yard. The garden is very beautiful and there is a great view from the terrace.
The breakfast is a real joy, i mean i never had a better one :) Great job guys!
As a not so good thing i have to mention in my room there wasn't any air conditioning but the weather wasn't very hot luckily :)
