My Girlfriend and I stayed at Kooyk for 3 nights in October. The hotel is in a very good location close to a major tram route and down a little street away from any traffic. We stayed in Room 6 which is a double on the ground floor. It is the only room on that corridor so we had a... More

I also really liked this place. It is a budget hotel with many typically Dutch quirks. The ground floor terras room is great, very large. The exterior French doors are not Fort Knox, but I was not concerned. I believe we were the only ones using the WC on that hallway. The breakfast was typical and filling. Having hot eggs... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights at the end of June, in a fantastic ground floor room - Number 12. It was lovely and big with two chairs and a table, comfy double bed and french doors leading out into the small courtyard garden at the back. We had stayed in a budget hotel near the Kooyk... More

We stayed in the family suite with 6 single beds. The hostel is really run down and really old, however the male manager there was so helpful and lovely it kind of made up for it. There are some funny smells around the place, especially in the showers, it smelt a bit like sewage. There were 2 showers upstairs and... More

Even though it has been a long time since we stayed (Summer of 2005), it was memorable enough to say that what I do remember is the tightness of everything. I realise Amsterdam mostly only has narrow stairways, but this one took the cake!! The security was pretty good with the card, the breakfast was okay but in clean surroundings,... More

After reading some terrible reviews I was worried about staying here but it turned out to be an excellent hotel. My partner and I paid 120 pounds for three nights so it was really really cheap. We were given a room on the ground floor so I don't know about the lethal stairs but I was suprised at how big... More

As most people would have done, me and my four friends opted for this establishment because of the cheapness of the rooms to help save pennies for expensive Amsterdam. My first impression was that the hotel looked the type of place that would be owned by a stuffy pensioner who would want everyone in their beds by 11pm - however... More

This place was ridickerous!!! (as in AWESOME) First, to even enter the place, you need the magic password to bypass the office lady. But once payment was completed, she informed us of our freaking awesome luxury 6-bedroom apartment, which was awesome. She took us up stair cases imported from mount everest (if you're more than 19 stones, stay off the... More

The rooms are very disgusting! They don´t look like as on the pictures! You can´t open the windows, ´cause the´re locked! Smoking is not allowed and nobody tells you that by booking the rooms. You have to pay the rooms completley before you´ve seen them!!! The "bathroom" is a little tiled chamber and if you don´t are a big dirtbag... More
