“Very nice hotel in good location”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of July and really enjoyed out stay. We booked a deluxe room but paid for an upgrade to executive deluxe.

We were greeted by name as we arrived which was a nice touch and the staff were polite and helpful (and spoke excellent English). Our room was a decent size (by European standards), well decorated and very clean. The air conditioning worked well. The location is great - a lovely quiet street but very close to the museums and tram stops. The decor downstairs is great - we liked the Delft-style bust of Lenin on the front desk.

I had hesitated slightly about booking this hotel as I had read a few reviews talking about noise from the cleaners or the lift. I had asked them specifically not to put us next to the lift although as we upgraded we did then get a room next to a lift. Apart from being able to hear the occasional conversation of people getting in and out (which you can of anyone who walks past your door) there was no noise from it at all so this doesn't seem to be a big problem (although there does seem to be a room next to the lift on the ground floor that I probably would avoid)

So, why not a 5-star rating. A few small things. The sink being outside the bathroom I can live with but the mirror above it was too high for my wife to see into without standing on tiptoe and the light above it was too dim to be able to shave easily. My wife ended up doing her lipstick in the lift! The bed was too soft for my liking (although it was huge). You also had to go an ask at the desk for wi-fi and movies (there is a DVD player but no in-room movies). The staff seemed great and I'm sure it would have been easy to sort out but both of these seem like things I should be able to sort out myself in the room. Why not leave the wi-fi code and at least a list of what movies they have in the room? Also, I had hoped that some of the idiosyncratic decor from downstairs would make it into the room. Once we'd made it through reception there wasn't really a feeling of being in a boutique hotel in Amsterdam, we could have been in a nice hotel anywhere in the world.

That said, this is a great hotel and we're glad we booked it

Room Tip: We booked direct with the hotel which was painless as they speak excellent English and you then then...

Stayed for 4 nights and was very pleased with our Executive deluxe room. Nice interior decor, clean and modern. Although I nede to make a comment regarding the mirror above the sink - it was not cut out for someone at only 1.59 cm.... :o) Friendly and helpful staff and quiet neighbourhood, next to the street that will make your wallet cry. We jumped on the train from airport to central station and took a taxi from there to the hotel. Very easy. Taxi back to airport when leaving was not expensive either.

I wish i can bring home their bed. My wife and I stayed a total of 3nights and had the greatest sleeping experiences in my entire trip. Not to be confused with the Hotel Vondel which is part of the same chain. Hotel Vondel is located in what looks like a rough neighborhood but Hotel JL no. 76 is the total opposite.
Hotel JL no. 76 is located a block away from the most trendiest district of Amsterdam with all the boutiques and restaurants you can imagine. There is also the van Gogh museum and Amsterdam museum 2-3 block away plus a local supermarket for supplies. The design of the room I stayed in was very very cool and overall ,the general atmosphere of the lobby and dining area had this great vibe.
Tram stops are less than 10mins walk. The hotel's staff can easily teach you how to use the transport system.

Room Tip: Chose a high floor level room facing the courtyard

We stayed here on the 21st of July as part of our 7 week European honeymoon, it was just fab! It's in the Mecca for designer shopping and plenty of surronding food options. The rooms were ok on space and the bathroom in the main area is a bit strange, but not a big deal.

One major positive for this hotel is the SUPER comfy beds! We had such a good night sleep. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

All in all, if you're looking for a great hotel that won't break the bank - look no further! Some improvements for this hotel could be free wi-fi.

We booked a romantic getaway in this small boutique hotel and it proved to be wonderful. The location is great, in a quiet street right next to Museumplein, Paradiso and the posh P.C. Hooft shopping street.

Our room was very cosy. It had a very large comfortable double bed, and some nice extras like a flat screen tv in the bathroom, a jacuzzi and walk-in shower and a nespresso machine. (Note: the hotel also has a free of charge dvd rental service. There's not much of a choice though)
The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We didn't try any food.

I can't really think of any bad things to say, but if I had to name a few things that could be improved: a little light in the closet with the espresso machine would have come in handy, especially on a winter morning when it's still dark.
And also: if you're shorter than 1m60, the peeping hole, mirror, airco... might be a bit high for you.

I'm not complaining. For us this hotel has been nothing but good. (Especially since we only paid around 60-70 euros a night, thanks to a promotion.)

The good points first:
- Location, location, location. Quiet, yet close to all the museums, shops, and restaurants (10-15 minute walk)
- Good in-room facilities (eg nespresso machine, flat screen telly, and best of all, three-pin socket so no adaptors required)

The negatives:
- Some problems with the housekeeping / levels of cleanliness. Room not ready when we arrived at 3pm. Housekeeper called but the room left quite dusty in places. Worst of all was finding staining (old, dried blood) on the pillow when I went to bed that evening. Although it was sorted out, problems like this could be avoided by using pillow protectors that can be laundered.
- Comfort room small. Lack of hanging space was irritating - not place to hang towels or anything longer than shirts. Bathroom contained toilet and shower only. The washbasin was outside in main room. This was inconvenient and not clear from room description.
- Despite being new hotel, tired in places eg very stained carpets.
- Designer shower which unfortunately flooded floor every time we used it

In summary
- Good hotel for short trip
- Not four star in terms of service or facilities. Good three star more appropriate desciption.
- We paid €220 per night for two of the nights which was overpriced. Third night was €110 which was about right.
