“This is the best hotel we have stayed in when in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We loved staying here when we came 10 th october 2013 only wished we stayed longer the location was excellent only 4-5 mins walk from central station got all shops bars and restaurants on your doorstep the hotel was great rooms clean tidy had all you needed staff very friendly and helpful breakfast room spotless and had a great selection of food enjoyed it very much . Let us keep the room on for a small fee so was not hanging around for hours and when the time was up they said we could stay until the last minuet before we left so was not hanging around . We really enjoyed it would recommend this hotel to anyone so if you are going to Amsterdam and want a nice hotel to stay in book koopermoolen you won't regret it .

Quite good value - great location - will probably return there next year !
Rooms tiny, sparse, cramped and very limited in amenities ... but this is the same with most 3 star hotels in central Amsterdam.
Breakfast - ok - adequate ... no more
Staff very friendly (well most of them ... but that's life - right?)

Room Tip: I was not facing the street & it was quiet ... no problem. But rooms are tiny - unless you get a...

Lovely reception staff, clean and centrally located. Unfortunately, on our 1st morning after staying, €40 was taken out of my jeans pocket by housekeeping staff. I spoke to him directly and he said he found €20 on the floor of my room and reported it to reception staff and I checked, he did do this, so am sure he's a proffessional theif (giving me my €20 back yet keeping the other) DO NOT LEAVE MONEY IN ROOM. The manager didn't even look at me and said 'how long are you here for? Why have you only got €40? The cheek. Rude, rude,manager with no apology.

great location the hotel is good and good is the word for a few reasons, taking into consideration we were on a lads holiday, it was situated on the woermstratt great party strip full of bars and coffeshops and around the corner from the beautiful amsterdam central and also a 5 minute walk from the red light.

hotel wise it was ok the staff are friendly, the room we got papped in the room above the strip which was not too bad, a bit noisy but if you are highly baked and been mindlessly wandering around amsterdam all day it doesnt make a difference. The breakfast was surprisingly good and the room was a smoker friendly which was brill!. The bad points about the hotel was the fact you have to share a shower, you would be up and down those steep almost vertical stairs like yoyo to use it.

Overall it was not bad, but worth the money and the location booked it again for next year

I have actually stayed here twice, purely based on price and location. Amsterdam hotels are usually very expensive so this appears like a good option, but having stayed twice I really wouldn't again. The rooms are small and cramped, outdated and poor facilities. The only good aspect I can report is that the front desk staff are cheerful 24/7, however you can't help but feel this is more of a hostel than a hotel. The stairs are a nightmare to climb and are wooden so if you are placed anywhere near these you will hear people going up and down the stairs all night long. If you want very cheap and basic then this place is for you, if you want even a tiny bit of luxury then don't stay here.

Booked the 6 bed apartment last minute for me and 4 mates beds and rooms fine basic accommodation would have booked something better if had booked earlier amsterdam was 90% full that weekend though so had to take what could for the money no tv remote so no tv no internet access no kettle? Was a microwave but not the modern-day looking kitchen and the steps up to apartment level 1 steepest I've ever seen no joke and same again up to bedrooms decent enough place to put your head down only staff in hotel next to apartment were good and helpful as I said before good for cheap head down in ideal location for usual amsterdam stuff dont take much luggage if staying here like
