“Great central location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in this lovely boutique hotel 4 nights while on a family trip through Europe. We had a superior room with space for a roll away bed for my daughter. There were robes, slippers, coffee and a refrigerator in the room. Everything was simple furnishings but very neat and clean. Beds were very comfortable with nice quality linens and pillows. The hotel seemed to have very sparse staff. There is the check in receptionist and a bar tender in the adjacent bar area. The bar tender is also the luggage porter if needed. Housekeeper leaves at 2pm so we could not get our room cleaned in the late afternoon. Though they did bring fresh towels when requested. Front door is locked after 6pm. Hotel clerk has to let you in. We would definitely stay here again due to the price and great location.

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!
