We prepaid for a quad/four bed room. They managed to take our months in advance, but didn't have the room we reserved. The owner was extremely rude - even though it was their mistake. Our only option was to squeeze into a double room with one extra bed. They refunded a small portion of our money, but it took over... More

We chose the Hotel Kooyk because of the price and location. The hotel is superbly placed for the attractions, right by the Leindseplein and close to the Museumplein. It's on the bus route 197 from Schiphol, and very close to the tram stop for Dam Square. It is also right next to a canal. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.... More

“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.”
