    Historical Traveler Reviews Bilderberg Hotel Jan Luyken Amsterdam

    Loved this hotel: Sophisticated, comfortable, friendly


    My boyfriend and I just returned from a 3-week vacation to Europe and our stay in Amsterdam was a highlight of the trip. We had only intended on staying 3 nights but decided to extend our stay to 5 nights and the staff was very accomodating, even giving us a better rate than I was able to book through the discount Internet sites (120 Euro/night). The room was small, but they usually are in the larger cities and this one was actually a bit larger than those in similar hotels in London, San Francisco and New York. We found this hotel to be very chic without any "attitude." There is a great breakfast/coffee cafe just a few blocks away (Van Gogh Cafe), good shops and of course the museums are right around the corner. We felt completely safe & comfortable in this high-end neighborhood. Staff was super-helpful and friendly. The hotel bar was perfect for a nightcap. All in all, it was a great deal and I have already recommended it to friends. We will absolutely stay here again.



    Having stayed in every other hotel in the street we decided to visit Hotel Jan Luyken this time.

    After reading the reviews for the hotel I was worried what I was letting myself in for.

    I believe that I went to a different hotel than most of the other people that have left reviews.

    The hotel was spotless and very modern. It was secure and all of the staff were very friendly.

    Anything that we had forgotten the hotel provided.

    The rooms were adequate for a break in Amsterdam as there is so much to do over there you shouldn't be in your room that much.

    The shower was fantastic and the added bonus of a fridge in the room was great.

    I will definitely visit again.

    Not to be recommended


    Completely overprized hotel with tiny rooms. Don't be fooled by the pictures on the webpage - there is nothing "designy" about this place, it's a turn-of-the century townhouse which was most recently renovated - so my guess - in the mid80s. Nice location, no specific complaints, just that it's a rip-off and there a billions of nicer, more charming and more inexpensive places in Amsterdam.

    Great little hotel


    We stayed here in July 2003 after a colleague recommended it. It was in a lovely location, a pleasant walk to the centre of town and a tram stop close by if you don't want to walk.

    The hotel rooms were clean and stylish although ours was a little on the small side. There is a lovely spa room that you can book all to yourself if you want to indulge in a little pampering! The staff were very friendly and helpful and we felt it was good value for money. We will definitely go back there.

    Nice location


    The Hotel is situated in a quiet street close to the posh shopping district, museums and bustling leidseplein area. It's a small hotel with a smart bar area and the staff provided a good standard of service. The rooms are small but trendy in styling and the bathrooms have great showers. Overall a nice hotel 3 to 4* in the UK.

    Quaint yet stylish


    Stayed at the Jan Luyken in mid-October for 8 nights. The hotel is well-located in a mostly high-end residential area, yet backing into Amsterdam's upper end shopping street of Hooftstraat. The area is quiet at night, yet easily accessible by tram or by walking into the city centre. The museums and Concertgebouw are simply a few steps away. I had to request for a room change since the smell of cigarette smoke seems to be getting worse while I was there, and I was moved immediately to a non-smoking room. The front desk staff were very pleasant to deal with and very helpful (one even offered to lend me his bicycle!). The rooms are comfortable and stylishly designed. The breakfast was average, I enjoyed my breakfast at CaffePC more, which is located behind the hotel on Hooftstraat. Airport Shuttle bus stops on the Arco Hotel, half a block north of the Jan Luyken. Will definitely come back to stay at this hotel again.

    Location, Location, Location


    Pricey, but what do you expect so close to the Rodeo Drive of Amsterdam? My room was lovely, even though the shower was not enclosed in the bathroom. (Made the whole bathroom wet). But that's o.k. because I was in the least expensive room available. One block away are the museums and tram service to the rest of the city. There is an Albert Heijin under the park so no need to eat in restaurants. Had a great shuttle service to the airport. Staff was very helpful and the hotel itself is very quaint.

    Pretty Good, but expensive for what you get


    I've stayed there with my wife for her birthday 3 night from August 1st, 2003. We paid 169 Euro; per night with breakfast. The hotel is pretty nice, rooms are not big but cosy. Nice breakfast buffet and friendly staff at the breakfast. Meanwhile, the front desk staff is not so friendly. I asked them before I came if they could do something special for my wife birthday and their answer was: of course, we coul arrange a nice 1/2 bottle of Champagne for 26.50 Euro!!! Well, the hotel is well situated in a quiet street. I think that it is too expensive for what you get.

    Great Small Luxury Hotel


    I have stayed in Amsterdam several times before. Previously I stayed in the American, Victoria and Hotel Mass. This time around I picked the Jan Luyken due to its proximity to the museums, and I couldn't have been more satisfied with my choice. The lobby is classic buy stylish and the rooms offer spacious comfort with with a modern design. The bathtubs with the ledge are wonderful and the automated heating system really adds to it. The staff was friendly and I can't wait to return to this hotel again.

    Excellent small hotel, 2 minutes from museums and the finest shops in Amsterdam


    Pretty rooms, modern and friendly staff. Dutch decor and great small bar in the evening with patio. Not fantastic breakfasts, but average

    ... first adventure, a sex museum... Cause why not!? If only I had the will power and energy to explore more. Some how my backpack keeps getting heavier with all the free food the airline offers. No complaints here about free stuff, but when I have to carry it everywhere it doesn't seem that awesome anymore. Soon I will be in Africa doing things of sorts and working on my tan and hopefully coming home with a degree! Thanks for reading! Until next time. ...

    Normalcy Above All: The mentality of bikes as a tool and biking as being not a big deal…just normal transportation, a means to an end that happens to be convenient for these cities. It's an attitude I'm envious of, because it really speaks to the progress they've made.

    Perhaps the United States will be there someday, I will certainly be dedicating my professional career to bringing us closer. Goodbye for now!

    ... s luggage! What kind of bros are these? Anyway, we finally made it to our apartment rental and of course, I'm the one stuck with the sofa because I'm "just a little guy, blah blah blah". But that wasn't the worst part - after all that travel time anticipating the wicked French pastries, we ended up in an area without any bakeries! How is that even possible in France? Doesn't French law mandate that every domicile be located within five blocks of at ...

    ... Both hail from Florida ( one couple originally from Indiana and the other mentioned Massachusetts). They were a hoot and a half. One of the couples actually had an emergency landing in Halifax on their flight from Miami to London ( and traumatized by the " de-icing" required) so missed their connection in London and have been without luggage since Saturday until today... Glad it was not us! Dutch cheese soufflé, Mahi Mahi or chicken, ...
