First time We had ever stayed in a 1 star hotel, and it was certainly no where near as bad as expected. Rooms were clean and shared bathroom was spotless. You get what you pay for and we were more than happy with the value for money and central location. Caution on steep stairs, but it adds to the quirkiness...

The hotel was covered with scaffolding so we could not even find it. The room was meant to be a 'superior room with private bathroom', and it is seen in the photos provided by the hotel just like that. However, arriving there showed a very different reality: it was a dismal room, with scaffolding views and a toilet and shower...

I've been to Amsterdam on numerous occasions and it's obvious that space is a premium, with most hotels in this price range offering very small rooms. The Kooyk hotel had much larger rooms with two showers and one toilet located in the hall and one on the floor below. There was never a problem with queuing for the shower. Breakfast...

The location is great that you can just take bus 197 directly from airport to the hotel and go other place in Amsterdam by foot. The receptionists are so nice and helpful. The breakfast is good with fruit and vegetable.

We've enjoyed our 2 night stay in there, still pretty close walking to the centre of Amsterdam. Large room with shared amenities (quite small but OK) in the hallway. Nice breakfast .. Very friendly owners, thanks!

“We stayed in room 6, it didn't have the canal views like the rooms at the front but we only used the room as a place to sleep or get changed and ready between day and night activities. It would be my reccomendation.”
