“great experience”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I grew up not to far from Amersfoort and some of my family live there now. So when my brother was getting married last July I had my first hotel stay in Amersfoort and Lange Jan Hotel exceeded all expectations. The rooms rather are small, but very clean and tidy. we had a room overlooking the Lieve Vrouwenplein which is very nice (careful in summer when opening a window, might be a bit noisy out there). When walking in the bar section we were welcomed very nicely and got a brief explanation about the hotel and it's procedures.

The breakfast is very nice, especially if the weather is good and you can have it in the garden on the backside of the hotel.

All in all, great value for money, superb friendly staff and the perfect location in the Amersfoort center.

I was in Amersfoort on business for a few days and wanted somewhere to stay with a bit of character. The Lange Jan was perfect. Nice clean & simple rooms. Great location. Good wifi. Welcoming & helpful staff.

Room Tip: My room was at the front, directly directly above the bar. Nice & quiet though and good blinds t...

Very friendly and helpful staff (since I usually prefer hostels to hotels, I liked the feel of well-working non-professionalism ;-). The hotel/pub is perfectly situated next to the tower of Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk. The Budget room is tiny, but very comfy with wooden floor and view to the town canal (we had a back room). Perhaps not advisable if you seek a quiet place, since there are many pubs around and nights can be noisy. But perfect if you want to be directly in the lovely town centre, and actually we did not hear much from the pub downstairs during our weekend stay. Highly recommended!

Absolutly broke my heart to leave this lovely hotel in the fabulous town of Amersfoort. I Stayed in this hotel for approximately 6 months and never tired of it. Great room, Great burgers from next door, great beer in the bar and great roads to cycle about on .

Check it out!

In some aspects this B&B deserves better grades. It's lucky to get average overall, because It lacks professionalism in management, and in room maintenance. I checked in lateish on a wet evening in the crowded bar where everyone was avidly watching a football match, including the staff member on duty who was so laid back and uninterested in processing my booking that I really regretted my choice. No food available, but despite the weather plenty of choice in the square. Room was OK with a most comfortable mattress, but one part of the curtains was missing but no noise due to excellent double-glazing. The staff member on the breakfast shift was one thousand percent better than his colleague of the previous evening. Breakfast itself was good, but not cheap at Euros 9. Location is good, but if using a taxi from the station ask for the big church tower because no-one recognised the name of the tiny street the hotel is in. Would be really nice In summer to enjoy the garden giving on to the canal.

Great location in the heart of the old Amersfoort! Beautifully redecorated building with comfortable rooms. Irish Pub below it's really hard to notice during Your stay - very quiet place. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Lange Jan Hotel for everyone!
