This is not the place for you if you worry about extras, fresh paint jobs, artworks or posturepedic beds with cotton linen, but my partner and I were happy enough at Kooyk. We stayed for 3 nights. Got the train form the airport and a tram from the main station, then walked across the canal. Locals are willing to help if you get lost. Our room was outdated but large, with the window facing out to the canal and street corner. No noise and pretty to look out. We shared toilet/shower with ground floor occupants - no big deal. Around the corner is a square with bars and local eateries at good prices. There's also arthouse cinemas, concert halls and close to art galleries. If you've got walking shoes on though , most parts of the city are easily accessable on foot from the hotel. My partner and I had a fabulous time exploring the city, getting lost and stopping at out-of-the-way cafes for apple pie and coffees. Also loved the breakfast spread each day at Kooyk!! Meat cuts, eggs, a variety of jams and breads/rolls, juice, cereal etc. YUMMY!! As we were there in winter, I was worried I may not be warm enough. Not a problem there either. I would recommend this spot to budget conscious, not too fussy people who want to put the luggage down, eat a good brekkie and get out and see the city.
