Bed & Breakfast TULIPA is situated on the Leidsekade in the centre of Amsterdam, allowing the most picturesque and wide views of Amsterdam canals. The two buildings, next door to each other, date from the end of the 19th century and boast high ceilings and many original characteristics.
The location is a perfect starting point for any visitor to the city. The Leidseplein with its theatres, bars, nightclubs and restaurants, the Museumplein with our world famous Rijks and van Gogh museums, the Leidsestraat, the 9 streets and PC Hoofdtstraat for incredible shopping are all within 5 minutes walking distance from Tulipa.
The Tulipa is a great choice for travelers looking for an alternative to a traditional hotel in the heart of the museum area quarter. We booked the two bedroom suite for a family of four and took advantage of the breakfast option twice during our stay. The highlight of the spacious room was the view out of the bay window to the canal. Décor was simple and in-room coffee was an extra bonus. The owners were very hospitable and provided a full breakfast for a nominal charge. Museums, great restaurants, shopping, public transportation and parks are all within walking distance.
We stayed here in early May for three days and our stay was excellent in every way.
Jan and Paula are perfect hosts and helpful for restaurants, transportation, tours, etc.
We gathered in the evenings in the common room with our friends for wine and cheeses prior to our lovely evening walks to dinner in the neighborhoods. Do yourself a favor when making your way to Amsterdam.
