Excellent service!

The friendly staff was extremely helpful in providing directions to several out of the way restaurants and flower gardens. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Also, rent bikes when you are in Amsterdam. It is the best and easiest way to travel around the city!

Location,location......

For visits to museums this hotel is perfectly located. The rooms are small but clean. Breakfast is good but pricey at 15 euros. The front desk support is spotty: they missed a wake up call and only provided Internet access information after multiple attempts. But after I complained they made every effort to make up. But overall we had a good stay.

Comfortable and well located

Very comfortable room and bathroom. Staff was friendly and accommodating: when I asked where I could buy a guide book, I was given a tour book of the city to borrow. I enjoyed being near two major museums, shopping and restaurants.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Breakfast in the hotel was unreasonably expensive for me as an American, at 20 euros per person (close to thirty dollars at the current exchange rate). Instead, there were many fine cafes within a short walk for less than half that amount.

Lovely Hotel, Great Location!

This is a lovely hotel that my wife and I spent 3 nights at. It is ideally situated close to a nice area for wining & dining as well as designer shopping if that's your thing. As with most areas in Amsterdam the hotel is close to tram stops and a short walk to the nearest canal boat stop. Plenty of museums close by and lovely parks to walk through. Will definitely go back.

Good hotel ideally placed in the centre

If you are looking for a hotel ideally placed in the centre of town close to the Van Gogh museum and you are trying to escape the usual business travel chain hotels, this is the one you should get. Personalised service, excellent breakfast in a calm sourrounding. The rooms might be a bit small, but functional with all you need.

Jan Van Luyken

The hotel is a classic Dutch hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. If you are used to large American style rooms you will be disappointed, but then you shouldn't be spending any time in your room in the first place while staying in one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. We found the breakfast at 19.50 Euros a bit pricey and chose to eat at one of the many cafes in the area. But that was a small price to be within walking distance of the Rijksmuseum and the van Gough Museum. The room was very quiet and peaceful making the time we spent there relaxing after very full days of sightseeing. Definitely a 'go to' place next time in A'dam

Small but Tiny Hotel

Although the hotel rooms are small, they are clean and the hotel location is ideal. The price is comparable to hotels ns other major cities. The staff was very helpful in getting us tickets to various sites and in showing us how to get around.

Location excellent, staff helpful, room small

My experience was pleasant. The staff was extremely helpful and the location was perfect for visiting the Van Gogh and Riks Museum. Also, the tram and bus connections were very convenient for destinations other than the museum district. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
