I booked this hotel with some trepidation, but as we were only staying for 1 night I was more bothered about location than luxury. I was pleasantly surprised on arrival - NO funny smells in the reception area or rooms. Spacious room (118) that was spotlessly clean looking out over the front of the hotel. The bathroom looked quite new and had plenty of hot water.
You have to realise that this is NOT a 4 star hotel and you are not paying 4 star prices.
The location was perfect. 5 minutes walk from the centraal station, steps away from the Damrak with all it's shops and restaurants and just around the corner from the lively red light district.
As a first timer to Amsterdam I was a little concerned that the hotel was practically in the red light district, but I needn't have worried as we walked around we felt really safe and it wasn't as seedy as I expected.
The only negatives I could find were that there was some noise from the church bells and delivery vans etc early in the morning, however as you are smack bang in the middle of a capital city this is to be expected. Also there was a cigarette burn in one of the chairs in the room which made it look tatty.
Minor gripes and the location made up for any of the negatives.
If I were to go back to Amsterdam I would return to the Tulip Inn.
