Successful transformation

The new Golden Tulip Amsterdam West offers 245 spacious rooms equipped with air conditioning, a rain shower, Wi-Fi and a tea/coffee machine. The hotel is aimed at both corporate visitors and tourists, with its location in the west of the city an excellent spot for those arriving by plane, train or by road. It is just two minutes away from train station Amsterdam Sloterdijk, which has fast, direct connections to both Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and the historic centre of the city.

The hotel also houses excellent meeting facilities and a ‘live cooking’ buffet restaurant that can seat 300 guests for breakfast and dinner. All in all, the new Golden Tulip Amsterdam West is a perfect example of how entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry can exploit new opportunities by converting vacant office properties into hotels.
