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.

Nice, but aloof and far from the action

Bilderberg Jan Luyken is on a charming street, and the superior room was well-appointed, but it was far from the action and they charged extra for everything! An hour of internet service was 7 euros. Breakfast (which we declined) was 20 euros per person. They couldn't even make us a reservation at the Anne Frank House - we had to pay for internet and printer usage at a lobby portal. Next time, we would look for a hotel in the Spui or Westermarkt sections.

If you're in good shape, take a tour of the church steeple at Westerkerk in Amsterdam. It's many stairs, but an adventure with great views of city.

1st Amsterdam trip

We checked in early, they accomodated our luggage while we started going around the city. The person that checked as in was very helpful in giving us directions. The breakfast was somewhat expensive but convenient. The location was nice and quiet but close enough to attractions. Will stay here again.

Learn the map well. The canal hop on/off ride is good but still need to know your general locations otherwise you'll end up walking a lot.

Nice location.

The location is very convenient between the Museumplein and the shopping street. The bathroom and the room itself is quite small. Two separate beds instead of a double bed.

A lovely small hotel

The Blderberg Jan Luyken was great find, it is in very nice part of town, We were able to get into our room by 10 in the morning which was very kind of them. Very close to the Museums, and a very expensive shopping district. We could easily find the canal boats. We were only there for the day, and they did direct us to a very nice little Italian resturant, to the left and around the corner.We did not eat breakfast at the hotel thought $30 was too much.To the right and down the street, turning right there is a nice bakery.
