On a Budget?

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 24, 2007

This hotel was offered to me by a travel agency in Maastricht: it is central and cheap, though toilets and showers are shared.
I had a single room, looking on an internal courtyard: not a perfect view but really quiet. I found the room to be quite small, it had a single bed, a small table with chair and a small closet to hang your coat. It had a sink and a TV.
All in all it was comfortable, just too small, but I think they have bigger rooms.
From what I could understand it is family managed; the hosts are really friendly.
In this hotel there is no real front desk, at least when I was there: in fact your room key also opens the main entrace door, giving you the freedom to come and go as you please.
Stairs are really steep and there is no elevator... but steep stairs are common in Amsterdam.
There was no air conditioning, but heating was good (I was there in february).
Though facilities are shared, I found them to be really clean.
The manager (I think the owner) offered me a rate of 30 Euros per night on my second week's stay...but you have to pay the whole stay in advance and cash. If you want to use a credit card they charge a fee (I think 5%) but I paid cash.
Breakfast is included in the rate and is served in the breakfast room. It is a continental breakfast with scrambled eggs, toasts and ham and cheese, orange juice...

I do recommend this hotel if you're on a budget and want to stay in the center of Amsterdam: it is placed on a side canal of Leidseplein.
If you have motion problems, prefer private facilities or want more comfort in the room look elsewhere.

Unique Quality: It's in a great location, on canal alongside Leidseplein, practically close to all major attractions and in the center of the nightlife.
I'm sure the front rooms overlooking the canal have great views.

Directions: From Central Station take the tram and stop at LeidsePlein, then keep walking, cross the big street and you'll see a building that looks like a castle. Take the street on the left of the "castle" alongside the canal: it's a short walk to the hotel

Hotel Kooyk

by written on January 21, 2003

Hotel Kooyk is a very small pension near Leidseplein (Leidse Square), just a few doors down from the swanky Crown Plaza American hotel. They really made the effort to furnish the room in what might possibly be real antiques. We had a real sleigh bed and a fireplace mantle in our small room, which had french doors into a courtyard. The room had small TV and a sink, but we shared 2 toilets & showers with the rest of the floor. The WCs were tiny but clean, and the shower rooms were spacious, clean and newly tiled.

From Centraal Station, take streetcar #1, 2 or 5 to the Leidseplein stop. Head toward the Crown Plaza American hotel, but turn down Leidsekade, parallel to the canal. Hotel Kooyk is #82. Ring the bell to enter.

Unique Quality: We enjoyed the character of the building, the friendly staff and the close proximity to lively Leidseplein, with many choices for restaurants and public transportation. The breakfast room was very cheery, tiled and had a fireplace.

In January 2003, the double room was 25 Euro per person per night (total 50 Euro for two people). The price included breakfast. I noticed on their web site that the prices are listed considerably higher. I have no explanation for the discrepancy except that we stayed off-season and arrived with no reservation and informed the host that we were shopping around for a room before asking what the price was.

Directions: Hotel Kooyk is near Leidseplein, just a few doors down from the Crown Plaza American hotel, along the canal. Leidseplein is south and west of Centraal Station on streetcar lines #1, 2 and 5.
