We were a group of girls staying here for a birthday weekend in Amsterdam so wanted a budget hotel near all the action of Leidesplein. It's a GREAT location for this, just round the corner, so saving our high heeled feet for dancing! The hotel is an old building so be aware the stairs are steep and narrow. Our room... More

The hotel was squeaky, every step you take is accompanied by a squeak of the floor. It is pretty noisy too as i could hear every movement of the occupant above me and of people talking and walking outside my room. Worst of all, there's no decent hot shower available! The water warms abit then turns EXTREMELY cold, then suddenly... More

I must admit that I have not stayed in this hotel, but I had reserved a single room in this hotel for 6 nights in September of 2005 based upon the general description of the hotel given on the various hotel booking websites. However, upon reading some of the reviews from this website that described the Owner's overly tempermental reactions... More

Amsterdam is a lovely city with many, many hotels. I would advise that you find somewhere else to stay than the Kooyk Hotel. The service and accomodations were sub par, and certainly below the standards of most decent youth hostels in Europe. Decidingly NOT worth the €70 price. Reservations: Our confirmed canal view room was unavailable at check in due... More

I have just returned from The Kooyk hotel, Amsterdam after spending the weekend there. It was part of my travel A- level course to book a group trip. There were 15 of us in total. The owner was very helpful and emailed us with details of how to get to the Hotel and great places to eat that evening. We... More

The Kooyk Hotel is a Budget 1 Star Hotel but don't expect 4 star, It is a clean and very nice hotel run by Pierre and Family who always give a welcome to die for, they really make you welcome. I have always felt at home here and it is perfect for getting around Amsterdam and all it has to... More

I stayed at the Kooyk during a one-night layover in Amsterdam in December 2004 (there's no bad time to go to Amsterdam--the weather was mild and there were fewer other tourists to contend with). The pluses of this family-run hotel: A fantastic location just steps off the Leidseplein and easily accessible by tram from Central Station; very friendly reception by... More

I thought I'd post a review to inform tourists to be wary when booking their accomodations while abroad based on my own unpleasant costly experience while in Amsterdam. Although my experience is not at all reflective at all of Hotels in Amsterdam, this is written to advise fellow travellers/tourists to plan extensively and with caution. I don't have the good...

I had the worst experience of my life at this hotel. Me and my mom were going to stay at this hotel in August 2003. Even though I had a confirmation of booking by email (which I still keep to show anyone interested), on our arrival to the hotel, the lady at the desk told us that there was no... More
