Our story

  • We are Jansen

    Hotel Jansen is a home away from home. No concessions on comfort or space. A place where you make friends, make fun, make memories. A place you can call home. For a day, for a week, for 6 months.

  • We made it happen

    In the middle of everywhere, we built a place where like minded people study, work and play. We turned an empty lot into a paradise with an incredible team in less then 2 months. Watch here how we made this happen. 

  • We love what we do

    All rooms and floors are unique, with hand crafted furniture and art that are designed by a collective of Dutch artists and carpenters. Meet the crew that made it all happen.
