Jan’s stylish and light-flooded rooms come with carefully selected tasteful details and flawless facilities. In every room you can see elements of the works of the historic poet and etcher Jan Luijken. From the signature engraving lines in the carpet to the friendly eye that looks over every room.
Our single rooms are equipped with a super comfortable bed, pleasant walk-in shower and Nespresso and tea facilities. Everything you need to relax after a day of exploring. The eye-catcher of the room definitely is the peacock-shaped head board, that proudly fulfills a role as an interior centerpiece.

The hotel is a 3 minute walk to the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. It is one block from the #397 bus which runs every 7 minutes to and from the airport and takes about 30 minutes. The hotel is one block from the #2 Tram that runs right through the city ending up at Central Station. Most important for it's guests, it's located on a quiet street which is wonderful during the day to get away from the busy city noise, but even more important at night when sleeping.
We’d stayed here before pre-Covid, and it lived up to our memory. Aside from the obvious benefits of a brilliant location, the staff are unfailingly friendly and professional. As a couple of people have noted, you need to take note of room size when booking. Our room was compact but comfortable and well-equipped. Let’s face it - when you’re in Amsterdam you want to be out and about, so we didn’t need a spacious room. There’s also a comfortable lounge by Reception, so if you want a relaxing sit down with a drink the option is there.
Disappointing Liked · I've stayed here before and the staff were helpful as ever. I like the location. it really is great or the museums. Disliked · The room was too small. So small that the bathroom door could not open fully as it was impeded by the bed. It was ridiculously small. There was nowhere to hang long clothing such as coats or dresses. The wardrobe consisted of a cupboard above the fridge and the safe, with four hangers. The shower was tiny with a plastic shower curtain. This was NOT a four star hotel room. I was shown two other rooms on the day I arrived after we had checked in to the room, but they weren't much better. I remain puzzled as to how we got a larger room when we stayed last year. We used the same booking website but this time we are told that we had booked a smaller room. We had been warned that there would be disruption due to the refurbishment works taking place, so I make no particular complaint about this, except I was not happy to emerge from the shower at 8.00am one morning to find a contractor working on my bedroom window.
This hotel is in a fantastic location. Right where you want to be next to the major museums--if you get room 510 you can see the top of the Rijksmuseum out the window--and the 2 tram, which takes you down to the Central Station and the Dam in 15 minutes. Do order the breakfast. It is substantial and very good. The staff are lovely and eager to help. The rooms are petite, but plenty large for me and my 19-year-old daughter, but size up if that is a concern for you. Overall a great value in an A+ spot.
We chose the Jan Luyken for its location, very close to art museums and just one block to the tram stop to get into central Amsterdam. The staff was EXTRAORDINARY. Everyone was so warm, welcoming, friendly--in addition to being very professional. If you want to be treated with great efficiency and kindness, friendliness and warmth...stay here. The hotel is beautiful. We had a large room (worth every Euro!) but smaller rooms at a lower price are also available. It is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. The decor is lovely, bed linens fine quality, the shampoos/lotion/etc. really nice and in full size bottles (who knew that would make such a difference.) Even if you are not interested in the art museums, I'd recommend staying here rather than in the center of Amsterdam. The center is incredibly crowded and you can get to the center so easily on a tram from the hotel. There are really good restaurants within walking distance.
