“Hotel perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

I went to this hotel on work basis, very central for all local attractions and very close to square for evening entertainment. Would highly recommend this hotel for location, staff very friendly and helpful to find our way around the sights of Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Some rooms very small if any complaints to report to reception no issues.

This is a high quality hotel. Service is excellent. Location one block off the Museum square and just a few blocks from the concert hall make it great for those with interest in the cultural attractions. The breakfast at 15 Euro seemed a little pricey to me but was very nice buffe, t For those into shopping there is a row of designer name stores a block away. Sort of touristy funtio watch the attractive women in fancy fur jackets pedaling their bicycles

Very Nice hotel. Conveniently located in the city centre

It is very clean, has tea an coffee in the room. Nice modern bathroom.

The night porter was very helpful and very friendly as we turned up very late.

There is internet in the hotel but not free. Beware, there is a bottle of 70p water in the room but if you open it, it will cost you 5 euros.

Breakfast is not cheap. 20 Euros, very expensive for 2 fried eggs and 2 hash browns and a bit of fruit (there was cereal also available)

Overall, very nice but not cheap

We were so pleased with this hotel. It was super easy to get to from the airport...4 euros each on the 197 bus. The hotel is a block and a half from the bus stop. It is about 2 blocks from the Rijks Museum and 1 and a half blocks from the Van Gogh. The room was clean, big and comfortable. The staff was SUPER helpful always. There is interenet connection in the lobby for a small price. Obviously, we would highly recommend.

The Jan Luyken is beautifully situated for the cultural traveller, close to the Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum,Stedelijk Museum and the Concertgebouw. It's also an easy walk to the Old City. The hotel is comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. There are pleasant cafes and restaurants nearby too. I very much enjoyed my stay here.

The top location was the main reason to book here.
It came at a price of 150,00 per night for a double; well for that money I would have thought to have the breakfast included, but no.
Having overcome that, arriving at the room at the 4 th floor, I had 2 surprises awaiting me: the ridiculous charge of 5 euro for a small plastic bottle of water.
Please do not do that!!!!
The bath and shower in one, was dangerous to get out from and you had to stay really close to the wall to get the water over you.
Please attach a handhold.
In these times it is unreasonable to charge a too big amount for wifi,should be free no!

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back

The hotel is within 5 minutes walk of the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum, plus is close to the canal area. A real bonus is that it is also just 5 minutes walk to the 197 bus stop - only 4 euros and 30-45 mins from/to Schipol airport. It is also 2 minutes from the 'designer label' shopping street. So fabulous location.

A warm welcome from the receptionist - as we arrived at 11am (we did not expect the room to be ready ... but he offered the room to be available wiithin a hour). He stored our bags and gave us a map plus 10% discount coupon for the blue canal boat tour - but we decided not to return to late afternoon. We would not recommend the canal boat tour - we found the commentary is a bit trivial at times and overly long at 75 minutes.

On our return our room was ready - on booking we had opted for a package of superior room, breakfast, wifi included plus dinner. Room was large (for a city hotel), modern, clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a very sound night's sleep in the comfortable bed - in fact we overslept! Breakfast was good with hot (3 items) and cold buffet. All staff were were equally pleasant. The hotel bar was good value too.

Hotel sells tickets for the Rijksmuseum without a markup so we missed the massive queues - well worth getting there before 10am. Audio tour is well worth taking.

So bottom line a great hotel, nice people and super location. I would definitely stay again but not have a dinner package (see below).

Dinner package: I did not realize on booking that dinner was in the sister hotel - OK I missed the small print - which we were told is a 15 minute walk away (away from the city centre). After a day sight seeing we did not feel like walking - so spent 9 euros each way on a taxi. The restaurant at the Bilderberg Garden hotel was fairly quiet - the menu was limited to a set (no choice) 3 courses but the waitress agreed to let us change to a different starter at no additional cost. The food tasted superb and was very well presented. Wine was expensive - as it is in hotels - some 32 Euros for a Pinot Grigot. As you would guess there are multitudes of restaurants closer.
