Jan Luyken Amsterdam, a newly relaunched 62-bedroom boutique townhouse hotel, invites guests to experience the epitome of luxury and comfort in the heart of Amsterdam. Following a multi-million-pound refurbishment, this exquisite hotel combines the charm of a private residence with the convenience of a world-class hotel. Located in a prime spot where the Museum Quarter meets the elegant shopping street, The PC, Jan Luyken offers a haven for cultural explorers visiting the capital city.
Originally constructed as three residential houses in 1899 by architect P. van der Vliet, Jan Luyken derives its name from its location on Jan Luijkenstraat, paying homage to the 17th-century Amsterdam master poet and etcher Jan Luyken. This historic connection adds an extra layer of significance to the hotel’s allure.
Drawing inspiration from the vibrant atmosphere of Amsterdam and the artistry of Dutch craftsmanship, Jan Luyken’s ground floor communal spaces have undergone a recent revamp by the renowned Amsterdam-based interior design studio, Nicemakers. The hotel’s design ethos aims to create a sense of home away from home, encouraging guests to utilize the spaces for rest, work, and play according to their desires. The ground floor layout mirrors that of a private residence, adorned with carefully curated vintage and contemporary pieces sourced from the Netherlands, Belgium, and Italy, creating a truly unique and inviting atmosphere.
The heart of Jan Luyken is its captivating library, offering a serene ambiance and a view of the private house garden where guests can unwind in the open air. Paying homage to the nearby Rijksmuseum, the shelves are adorned with an extensive collection of art books, perfect for those seeking artistic inspiration or a deeper understanding of Dutch arts and history.
Jan Luyken’s kitchen provides a relaxed, open-plan space that guests can enjoy throughout the day, reminiscent of being at home. Adorned with handmade tiles, a sharing table, and a cozy sofa nook, it sets the stage for culinary experiences. The breakfast selection showcases the best of local, seasonal produce and artisanal pastries. Throughout the day, guests can indulge in homemade snacks, coffee, tea, and juices. The self-serve drinks include a selection of house red and white wines, local bottled beer, and Craftails, a range of ready-to-serve cocktails crafted by Belgium’s best bartenders.
For those seeking to stay active during their visit, Jan Luyken offers a home gym equipped with luxury handcrafted wooden equipment from NOHrD. Guests can engage in cardio and strength-based exercises or enjoy mat-based activities in the designated floor space. The gym’s textured cork walls and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden create an inspiring environment for workouts. Additionally, the hotel provides house bicycles, allowing guests to explore the city like locals.
The hotel’s bedrooms exude elegance, featuring textured, natural fabrics in vibrant warm tones. The supremely comfortable beds are complemented by thoughtfully chosen bed linen and soft furnishings made in Amsterdam by Elle La and Bonnie Barlag. Each room also includes stylish drip coffee makers, fluffy robes, and modern bathrooms stocked with CODAGE amenities, ensuring a truly indulgent stay.
