Best & central location
Hotel Jansen Amsterdam is located right in the middle of everywhere. The vibrant city center of Amsterdam, with the Dam, canals, universities, museums, clubs, parks and much, much more is easily accessible by bike, by public transportation or on foot. Most campuses are nearby and the train station is only a couple of minutes away. If you would like to add some green to your cultural diet, you can go to either the Vondelpark or the Amsterdamse Bos, they are both close by. The Vondelpark is a great place to see and be seen, chill out and connect with your inner hipster. The Amsterdamse Bos is a great recreational area where you can get away from city life for a while. You can hike, swim, have a picnic, ride a horse or befriend a goat.
Short stay accommodations can be very anonymous and dull. Hotel Jansen Amsterdam is the exact opposite. We strive to make Hotel Jansen feel as much as home as possible and what feels more like home than a place where you have your own room, everybody knows your name and where you can truly be yourself? For that extra homey feel, you can go to restaurant Mama’s, where it’s all about the food and hanging out with likeminded people. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you can even get your meals to go. The food there is so good, and the staff so friendly, that it will make you miss your own mama. Just give her a call. It’s ok. We won’t tell.
Hang out with likeminded people
Studying and working in a new city and traveling the world are awesome, but can also get lonely at times. We know that. That is why, at Hotel Jansen, we make it a point to know all our residents by name and make sure that nobody is alone if they don’t want to be. Luckily, there are plenty of opportunities to meet people. The Club Rooms are so ‘gezellig’ that it will be hard nót to meet someone and at Mama’s there are all kinds of fun events and parties. Don’t worry if you are the introverted, shy type, it’s just so easy to get connected with that cute German girl on the 2nd floor, that sporty Australian guy that you saw at the gym or local Henk who lives just down the street. Everything is in the spirit of friendship and meeting new people.
We are Amsterdam
You don’t have to leave the hotel to feel like you’re in Amsterdam. Hotel Jansen has the city oozing from its pores; every art piece, desk, wallpaper and toilet reflects Amsterdam. It doesn’t matter if you are into nature, culture, city life or just like hanging out in Amsterdam, we have just the room for you. Our staff is made up from colorful locals who have been around the block a couple of times and know the city like the back of their hand. Don’t hesitate to ask them for anything. Seriously. They know where the best ‘terrasjes’, parties, cinemas, festivals and libraries are, but also where not to go as well as hook you up with a sweet deal for the local gym or anything else you might need. Stick with us and you will become a local in no time!
Cheap & cheerful
Live like the king or queen that you are. For an honest and all-inclusive fee, you will have your own fully furnished room, styled uniquely with colorful Dutch artisan craftwork and access to the fastest Wi-Fi this side of the Amstel. Unfortunately, you will still have to do your own laundry (hey, you have to make concessions when you’re on a not-so-royal budget), but for a small additional fee you can add cleaning services. You will never have to clean your room again! Well, ok, not never, but as long as you’re staying with us, you can focus your attention on other things instead of cleaning. On food, for example. You can cook your own meals in the kitchens of our spacious communal areas, but you can also add a meal plan at Mama’s. The more often you eat, the cheaper it gets.
