“A welcoming hotel with excellent standards of service”
Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights, when visiting Amsterdam for the first time. It is ideally placed for the museums and exclusive shopping area, Chanel and LV being just around the corner! The hotel is beautifully furnished, clean and well appointed. The breakfast had a good choice and the freshly baked breads were absolutely delicious. The little bar was friendly with very good service and served some snacks. We would recommend the hotel, if you enjoy 'small but perfectly formed' rooms, with all the ususAl facilities. The bathroom we had was roomy with a good shower. All the facilities we would expect are there, except free Wifi, we had to pay €34 for four days access. However, everything about our stay was delightful. The hotel is a very short walk from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum, if you are planning a cultural break. The queues at both of these venues were very long, but we had an early breakfast and were at the museums by about 9:15 a.m., avoiding the worst of the long queues. We walked to many of the sights in Amsterdam, as the hotel is ideally sited for this. We would love to go back to this hotel, it was absolutely charming, with helpful staff.

As Amsterdam Hotels go, this hotel is a great value. My wife and I stayed two nights prior to our cruise to Norway and one night on our return. We booked a Superior Room with Breakfast and Wifi. Upon arriving from the U.S. the staff made a special effort to minimize the wait for our room by having it cleaned first. The room was lovely. It was quite large and well appointed and the air conditioning and wifi were very good. The staff was very courteous and helpful as well. The location of the hotel is also great - two minutes walk from the Museum Plain. Breakfast was quite good as well. I'd stay agin in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The Superior Rooms are well worth the price.

the hotel Van Luyken is a really lovely hotel and this was our 2nd visit with in the last 12 months. its only 2 minutes from the main tram line which takes you up to the central station and right through the heart of Amsterdam. its only a 5 minute walk from the bottom section of Leidersplien which houses the hard rock and other bars and restaurants.

The rooms are tidy if a little small but as your not in the room much this is of little concern. I would recommend this hotel for a trip to Amsterdam

It is a small, cozy hotel. Good breakfast and clean, comfortable rooms. No in room cable TV (only an old one but that can be forgiven) Very close to Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Musuem, Concergebow. What I enjoyed at night was Leidseplatz where you find many coffees and restaurants from many parts of the world and a nice, friendly ambiance. If you prefer red light distict and coffe shops you can easily find a taxi.

One recommendation. Take a print of the name and address if you choose this hotel. Some taxi drivers, specially in the airport does not know exactly where it is.

Very close to Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, and Vondelpark so if those destinations are of interest, this is a great location. The hotel is located on a fairly quiet, shaded residential street. it's also just a block removed from lots of upscale shopping venues. The staff overall was pleasant enough, although I did have one interaction with an employee who wasn't overly polite. The room was very small. THe TV and in room safe worked well. The bed was fairly comfortable, but just a twin bed so it was a tight fit. The bathroom was tiny. Overall the room had a well- used feel. It wasn't dirty and didn't smell bad, but the furniture and bedding were obviously old.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful rooms with all the luxury you need. The staff was very friendly, the room perfectly cleaned. The hotel is situated on a great location close to the van Gogh museum and the famous 'PC Hooftstraat' is around the corner.
