This small hotel is situated within a few minutes of a tram station, the Van Gogh museum and the Rijksmuseum (a few minutes further and you are in the old town with it's canals and gabled houses). The reception is well staffed by friendly people who speak excellent English. We arrived several hours before our check in time but we were offered secure storage for our luggage and could just dump our bags and go sightseeing. We were given a free city map on which the receptionist marked our hotel and pointed out the location of the trams, museums etc. The room we had was clean, quiet and very well appointed. We also had air con which was very welcome during what out taxi driver called a "heat storm". We stayed for 2 nights. Breakfast was fine on our first morning but was decidedly "iffy" on our second. This was certainly down to staffing. On the first morning the male staff member kept the buffet stocked and the tables cleared. On the second morning things were constantly running out and tables left cluttered. We self cleared half of our table and when we finished our breakfast the dirty cups and plates were still untouched - the female staff member must have seen the clutter because she came to our table with coffee and when I asked for milk she indicated the small jug in amongst the clutter. This small 'glitch' aside, Amsterdam was lovely and so was our stay at the Jan Luyken. We will doubtless return to both in the future.
