“Well placed for all sights in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

I visited Amsterdam on a conference and picked the Bilderberg Jan Luyken from a list of hotels provided and primarily because of its location. How lucky I was, as soon as I walked in I was given a warm friendly greeting and was upgraded to a superior room. The room was extremely spacious and well appointed. I have travelled a fair bit and have to say the beds and pillows ranked with some of the most comfortable I have ever slept on.

The hotels location is ideally suited for a tour of the museums/arts centres and night life if you fancy a pleasant stroll through the beautiful city of Amsterdam. The only thing I found odd, whilst they ahs a breakfast room which did exactly whhat it said on the tin, ttehre was no restuarant on site. The staff moore than made up for this as the room service was excellent.

Room Tip: All seemed fine although a superior was better

I stayed 4 nights at this hotel recently and was overall very pleased with my stay. The welcome at the reception when I arrived was very friendly, I asked for a room on the topfloor & was given one. It was small with slanted ceiling but with a nice view of the city. One night I had a problem with the people in next room, they were very loud, back at 1am & by 2am still banging doors. The clerk downstairs was very understanding & helpful. The problem was obviously dealt with the day after as I didn't hear a noise after that. I found the staff really nice, pleasant,
whatever you may need. That makes a difference. The location is good, 2mn from the Rikjsmuseum and 5mn from the famous Concert Hall. About 20mn from the center.
My two down marks would be the expensive breakfast at €19.50, a quick, cheaper version would be needed. And wifi should be free. Otherwise it is an warm, quiet, comfortable, lovely hotel I totally recommend.

Very nice and good located boutique hotel with clean rooms and very friendly staff in the city of Amsterdam! Close to a couple of Museums, the Grachten area and very easily to reach by Tram or Bus. Nice but easy breakfast, very helpful and friendly staff!

A good hotel which is in an excellent position for visiting the nearby Rijks Museum. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was excellent (eg smoked salmon available) but pricey. The cost is 15 euros if ordered in advance and 19.50 if not. However, staff did not seem to be that rigid about whether it had been ordered and gave us our at 15 euros anyway. The 197 bus for 5 euros from Schipol is the easiest way to get there.
Internet access is a fairly expensive extra.

Very friendly staff and the hotel is perefectly located as it is close to the museum qaurter (Van Gogh museum, Diamond museum, Ryjk's museum) and the local tram line. They also have a very nice baby cot. The hotel doesnot offer dinner and there is very few restaurants close to the hotel, but because the tram line is close this is not a major concern.

Located just minutes from the Rijksmuseum and a short walk to Leidseplein, this hotel is ideally situated for easy access to major city attractions. Yet it's still cozy and quiet for sleeping.
It has boutique feel, with nicely appointed interiors. Based on other reviews, we opted for a Superior Room, which was well worth it. It was spacious, comfortable and clean. Service was good, not great. Bar service in particular was very slow. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, but it was a bit pricey. Overall, it's a great place while you explore Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Opt for a Superior Room
