A new home

Hotel Jansen is not only a welcoming and well located place in Amsterdam, it is also a community of friends. With students and workers from all over the world, this international atmosphere makes everyone feel at home. I really enjoy here and I recommend to all newcomers this great experience.

Great place

Staying here now for 2 months and will definitely extend as long as possible. Great place full of amazing people. The location is perfect for walks in nature and not too far from the city centre. They also serve great food in the restaurant downstairs, I haven't cooked once. Highly recommended.

I'm staying here now for three months and so far I had a really good time! I made some amazing friends and the rooms are also really nice. The restaurant downstairs has really good food and coffee and the staff is super friendly. I really enjoy my stay here and can just recommend this place!

Ottimo posto dove stare

Ottimo per una permanenza di medio termine (1-3 mesi). Molto funzionale, ben frequentato, vicino al centro di Amsterdam, alla zona olimpica all'aeroporto.

Chill and cozy

Cozy family oriented atmosphere, lovely stuff with excellent service. Chill vibes at the hotel cafe overall, with some good music. P.S. Make sure to ask Ron to make you an iced cafe latte, best in Europe!

Absolutely lovely

This was my first residence when I moved to Amsterdam and my stay here was absolutely lovely! The mamas cafe downstairs has such a nice vibe , with the good music and food, the best place to unwind on a sunday! The rooms are cute , with each wall having these nice well thoughtout artsy paintings, different for almost every room. And finally the staff are young and approachable, always with a smile and ready to help. Jansen is a great way to meet people in Amsterdam, if you're new to city and dont know anyone yet. 5/5 definitely recommend !

Lovely place to stay

This is a place you can call home away from home. The rooms are so nice and the staff is the loveliest. If there’s ever a problem, both the mamas staff and the booking office is there to solve them for you. The beds are super comfy and the pillows make you dream sweet dreams. Whenever I go back to visit Amsterdam, this is the place I would choose over any other hotel!

I love you Ron

Staying at Hotel Jansen has been unreal. The staff are such a great bunch of people, each taking such genuine care in helping out all those under their roof! Jansen is in a great location, super close to the VU, grocery stores, cafe cafes and Vondelpark. I’ve met so many wonderful people here and would definitely recommend Jansen to anyone coming Amsterdam on exchange or as an intern.

Best Four Months of My Life!!

I stayed at jansen for four months while studying at uni here and could not have had a better time in Amsterdam! The staff are all such lovely people and are always there to help, give local advice or just chat. I’d recommend Hotel Jansen to anyone- but especially a student or young professional looking to make friends and feel at home in a new city.

Unique Student Hotel

Hotel Jansen has a unique gift to make you feel at home no matter who you are or where you come from. A big reason for this are its friendly and helpful staff members who are not only there to fix you a drink, but also offer a listening ear when you feel like talking to someone. The rooms and communal areas are beautifully designed, creating an inspiring ambience throughout the building. The kitchen and laundry facilities are easy to use so you won't have to worry about cooking dinner or washing your clothes. Next to that, I am very thankful for the management's understanding when I asked for my stay to be foreshortened. Their personal attention, as well as the staff's, added great value to the whole experience. Because of Hotel Jansen I am able to look back with fondness on my time in Amsterdam.

Excellent experience

Hotel Jansen is a truly special place and I cannot be thankful enough for the opportunity to have stayed there. It was the warmest welcome to the Netherlands that I ever could have asked for; the staff were so friendly and helpful, the room was extremely cozy and had everything I needed, and Mama's was a perfect place to meet up with friends, relax and really made the whole stay feel like a home away from home. In summary, I would highly recommend Hotel Jansen to anyone visiting Amsterdam; be it for a long, or a short stay.

Perfect place to stay

I stayed here for two months for work and enjoyed every minute of it - be it in the cozy, well-decorated, clean room, the nice common areas and kitchens, or the great café Mama's downstairs, while being in touch with the most kind, friendly, and motivated staff (greeting you by name every morning ;). The location of Jansen is great, as are the social activities (including the most amazing yoga class!). For me, this was *the* place to be, regardless of whether I needed some quiet time for myself or wanted to hang out with others. Everything seemed to be made with love and inspired by a great atmosphere 🙂 Thank you all very much and all the best!

Good place

I spent 6 month of my life here and it was great! I met a lot of beautiful people from all over the world and mostly good friends. It was perfect with a lot of fun and I enjoyed this wonderful city that I love. The room was comfortable and I felt at home. I think that the cleaning lady needs to keep more clean the kitchen, only because is a place where the people eat.

hotel jansen per zeilboot

Door een defect aan de sluis lagen wij met onze zeilboot 24u aangemeerd aan de handelshaven, vlakbij het hotel.De gastvrijheid was ongezien, de kamers waar we gratis mochten douchen supercool en het eten echt lekker.Leuk is dat de buurt ook echt hip is. Dank hotel jansen!! we komen er zeker terug!

Amazing stay

I spent six months in the Hotel and now that I am in Italy, I miss a lot the life there and people that I met. Hotel Jansen is a real family with friendly and helpful staff. In addition, Mama's restaurant is a nice place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner in a quiet and informal atmosphere. In the building, the bedrooms and the common spaces are comfortable, with modern design and a lot of light thanks to big windows.I knew people from all over the world with who I shared many beautiful moments in our club room and outside. My stay in the Hotel went really fast because I enjoyed a lot it.

The best short stay for expat

Hotel Jasen is located in Zuid Zone 1, the center of banking zone and the most safe area in Amsterdam. The mixture of residents with students and young expat create a great atmosphere in staying. I give it the highest rating and also recommend Hotel Jasen to my company HR department. I enjoy every moment of my staying, it is a great kick off for your stay in Amsterdam.

*The staff is very nice and helpful
*Rooms are unique, clean and well equipped
*Ideal if you plan to run the Amsterdam Marathon
*It is well connected to the public transport so you can access every point of the city in no more than 10 minutes walking.
*The food of their restaurant is awesome

Nice people

What i liked most about Hotel Jansen (next to the fact that you have your onw fridge in your room, i found that pretty awesome) is the friendly staff. Everybody is o helpful, relaxed and really always friendly. They were so caring and always willing to help. They were really like friends. Thumbs up to all of them!

Amazing staff, unforgettable experience

Both the staff and the Booking Office were amazing in assisting me from the very beginning of the room booking process until my move-out. I remember on the first day, I arrived not realizing that the European power outlet was different from the American, but the staff was so friendly to suggest where I could buy an adapter and even drawing a map to accompany it. All the other residents were also very friendly and overall made my 2-month stay in Amsterdam unforgettable!

Best temp. accommodation in Amsterdam

Comfortable and convenient place to stay if you'll be living in Amsterdam on a temporary basis. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Best part is the people you end up meeting from all across world 🙂

Different Is Beautiful!

I'm 64, and I was recently part of a summer study program through which I came to stay in a student room at Hotel Jansen. At my age, I expect appropriate sanitation, safety, comfort and respect. Hotel Jansen delivers all the requirements, but also encourages a genuine sense of wellbeing through staff whose friendly commitment to guests promotes community throughout the residence. The quirky design elements keep people surprised and smiling, and the food at Mama's is wonderful. I'm an accomplished cook, and the risotto was so good that I'd be proud to have made it myself. I look forward to returning--even if I'll be required to stay as a hotel guest.

exactly what I needed

When I found a 6 month work contract in Amsterdam my only worry was where to stay. Finding hotel Jansen was pure luck. The place is comfortable, in a great location, very nicely decorated and full of nice people, many of which I consider now my friends. All the staff is friendly and capable. Could not have been better.

Beat all my expectations

All you need: a super comfy bed and good shower. The hotel is full of amazing designs and the staff is really friendly. Oh, and the rooms are super well isolated - in case you can't stand noisy neighbors 😉 Beat all my expectations! Keep up the good work guys!

 by Kristina Dimitrova
Fabulous stay in Amsterdam!

We couldn't have asked for a better suited place to stay in Amsterdam. It's perfect for entrepreneurs, students and travellers who don't want to be treated as tourists. The team is so friendly and they made sure to tell us all the great local places to go during our stay. The hotel itself combines great design with cool, quirky touches, with spacious rooms and wonderful communal spaces. Highly recommended!

The place to stay

THE place to stay - Gezellig atmosphere, creative rooms, super comfortable beds and amazing people! In case you need anything, the staff is happy to help.
If you don't feel like cooking, Mama's has everything you need: good food & good drinks!
The area is nice and peaceful, only 5 mins to Vondelpark by bike.
Makes you feel at home.
I miss you mamas and papas
