My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights at the end of June, in a fantastic ground floor room - Number 12. It was lovely and big with two chairs and a table, comfy double bed and french doors leading out into the small courtyard garden at the back.
We had stayed in a budget hotel near the Kooyk previously in the year and the Kooyk was cheaper, nearer to the action (it is a fantastic location - although it looks quite far on the map it is only a 20 minute walk from Centraal Station. You don't need to take the tram just have a good map with streetnames on it.) and very welcoming indeed.
The staff were very helpful and kind, particularly the owner. Although he never saw my fellow at breakfast -he's not a morning person! - he kindly let me take a glass of juice into our room for him.
Also because the hotel is non-smoking (as all are now due to changing smoking laws) we enquired whether we could smoke in the garden and they were very accomodating despite the fact it wasn't just tobacco. It was a pleasure to have this private smoking area - coupled with the TV which we had set to comedy central at night!
It's not the Ritz - but seeing as it is a budget hotel it would be foolish to expect otherwise. I thought it was excellent value for money and I am hoping to return again next year.
Thank you all at Kooyk.
