Hotel JL is a nice, boutique hotel. Like many other boutique hotels I've found on TripAdvisor and stayed at, the building that houses this hotel was not built to be a hotel, but someone's very large home. Personally, I find that charming but I can see how some others may prefer larger rooms and in a 'proper' hotel building. Our room faced the street and we were lucky to get a room that wasn't near the staircase or the lift. After a trip to Dublin for a friend's wedding, we decided to stop by Amsterdam to check out a few museums. We stayed at JL for two, wonderful nights and am happy with it's location in the Musuemplein as we wanted to stay away from the Red-Light district and the tourist traps.
Although we were not able to rent the bicycles that JL provides, a bit of swift planning ahead will ensure there's one reserved for you the next day. The front desk ranged from being excellent one day to slightly abrasive/impatient the next (different staff). Not sure if we just caught the clerk on a bad day or what, but one bad encounter didn't sour the rest of our trip. We had a great time! Although the rooms were small, we found that it had everything we needed to rest and recharge. Will most likely return on our next trip to Amsterdam.
