Jan Luyken Amsterdam townhouse hotel opens

Jan Luyken Amsterdam, a new boutique townhouse hotel, opened in June after a multimillion-dollar refurbishment. 

The 62-bedroom property is in the heart of Amsterdam at the junction of the city’s Museum Quarter and P.C. Hooftstraat, an upscale shopping street.

Originally three residential houses built in 1899 by architect P. van der Vliet, Jan Luyken’s namesake was the 17th-century Amsterdam poet and etcher Jan Luyken.

The hotel is near the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum and the Concertgebouw concert hall. 

The ground floor layout, created by Amsterdam-based interior design studio Nicemakers, mirrors a private home, with vintage and contemporary pieces from the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy.

The library overlooks a private garden for guests, and the kitchen offers a relaxed, open-plan space with a sharing table and sofa nook. 

Breakfast features local, seasonal produce and artisanal pastries, and home-made snacks and refreshments are available throughout the day.

The on-site gym features handcrafted wooden equipment from NOHrD for cardio and strength-based exercise and floor space for mat-based activity. 

Guestrooms feature bed linens and soft furnishings made in Amsterdam from Elle La and Bonnie Barlag as well as drip coffeemakers, robes and Codage bathroom amenities.

The property features mobile check-in and a digital key system, and house hosts are available 24/7.
