Direct train from Paris to Amsterdam and hotel

Hubby and I (60+) want to take the train (more than one provider?) from Paris to Amsterdam

on THurs, April 24, 2014 (early morning) to see the tulip fields. Will someone please recommend the best

way to do this for the best price and recommend a hotel close to the train station in the 100 to 110 euro range?

We just need safe area with clean accomodations. From the hotel we will need to bus to the tulip fields.

Would appreciate the correct bus # to take. THank you for your help.

You can book Thalys train tickets exactly 90 days in advance and the cheapest ones will sell out fast (starting from the very minute after midnight GMT +1). www.seat61.com/Europe-train-tickets.htm#Paris

Perhaps the Ibis near Amsterdam Central Station is within your price range but you might as well stay a bit further away from the station.

www.9292.nl/en for bus numbers to Lisse / Keukenhof. And more info here: tripadvisor.ca/Travel-g188553-c132284/The-Ne…

Thank you for your quick response and the heads up about the timing to get the best tickets. I have a fondness for your

name -- also my grandmother's name. Now if you can just make sure those tulips are in full bloom when we arrive! :)

See this thread about tulips. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g188590-i60-k68362…

Take care - Grandma ;-)

By the way, I am assuming you are using an open jaw ticket, flying into Paris, and out of Amsterdam?

Yes, we will fly out of Amsterdam. We just couldn't be so close and not come see your beautiful tulips!
