“wonderful location in historic centre of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2011

Great room with modern comforts in a fabulously atmospheric space, great bathroom, although the bathroom took ages to heat up. Nice little private terrace outside our room. Good value room, breakfast was not quite as good as in other places -- they had run out of some things by the time we arrived at breakfast.
Location was not so easy from the train, but totally amazing for just stepping out and walking around the old town. Also wonderfully close to lots of good places to eat.
Service was low-key but practical -- the guy in charge carried our bags downstairs for us, which was very nice but not something we would normally expect.
The hotel is closely associated with a pub which was not at all busy when we were there. If I'd been on my own in summer, I would probably have chosen to stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for the terrace room downstairs.

We stayed at the Lange Jan last October for one night. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and there was a market going on. The drive through the town was a nightmare! Once we got there the location was great, within the city walls. We did have to park in a parking garage a ways off. The rooms are over a tavern which really wasn't a problem and the check in was nice. Our room and the shared bathroom was very clean. The main problem we had was the tiny tiny room. We had 2 carry on bags and a back pack. We could hardly walk in the room. There was about one foot of room on each side of the bed and very little at the foot. They serve breakfast for a price however we didn't eat there. Overall this is a nice place if you don't mind the cramped room.

Stayed here for one night when in Holland on business in Aug 2007. I had a very small room and the toilet bathroom were on the landing, but the room was comfortable, clean, very tastefully cleanly decorated - it was great.

The room was at the back of the property, overlooking the canal that circles the town centre - I would recommedn this place to anyone who wants a cheap and convenient place to stay - right in town, near the station also, and just 49 euro and 50 cents for bed and breakfast!!!

We stayed in Amersfoort for three nights in April. We booked this place over the internet and wasn't sure what to expect. We checked in at a little cafe on a square and I was a little concerned about our accomodations. No worries. The very nice bar attendant showed us to a lovely hotel on the market square. This place was spotlessly clean, new and bright. We had a double room ( with twin beds....but it was still OK). The town is lovely and rates are very reasonable..we paid 65 euros per night. The beds have nice thick down duvets and sheets are crisp and clean. There was a flat screen tv on the wall. Very nice. We were very pleased with the place. The market square added to our experience in Amersfoort. Other hotels are outside of town but this one is located right next to the large tower inside the old walled city. It was a ten minute walk from the train station, and you always had the tower to guide you.
