Stayed here for 2 days from the 20th-22nd December and was really pleased with it. Our room had a clean, modern en-suite bathroom and the room itself was pleasant. The staff were lovely and very helpful, breakfast was nice and it's just a couple of minutes' walk away to the Leidseplein centre. Next time I come to Amsterdam I'll definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get an en-suite room!

I suppose depending on where you come from will depend on your expectations which is why i have a few problems with some of these negative reviews about the Kooyk Hotel.
Firstly, chaps and chapesses this hotel is a typical listed building in Amsterdam. Limited Space people, thus more floors hence steep stairs, smaller bathrooms etc.
Secondly, this is not an expensive hotel near the centre of town, just diwn from a theatre in fact. What do you expect for your money?
These 2 points having been said my sister and I took my mother here for a significant birthday in may of this year and while yes it was undergoing major refurbishment none of us had a problem.
The room was clean and the beds comfortable, we had our own key so we could come and go as we pleased, the staff both family and hired were helpful, friendly without being obsequious. They all got on well which showed in their professionalism and pride in their Hotel. The food (continental buffet style) was fresh, tasty and frequently replenished. I should mention; as i cannot function in the morning without it, the coffee was hot, just strong enough and if required also replenished. What more could you ask?
To finish i would not take my mother on a surprise holiday to a rundown, filthy hole no matter how cheap it was as i value my continued existence to much. By the way my mother, sister and i enjoyed ourselves so much we are going back there whether the refurbishments are finished or not.
Mhairi Morison.

Hotel kooyk is a basic hotel located in Amsterdam city centre. The staff were great and granted all of our requests. The room was lovely and clean. We found that we were never more than 15mins away from the tourist attraction from our hotel so we were very happy an would definitely return.
