What is Zoku?

Facilitating global living and working for the traveling professional, Zoku, is a home-office hybrid, also suitable for long stays, with the services of a hotel and the social buzz of a thriving neighborhood. Zoku is a relaxed place to live, work and socialize with like-minded people while getting wired into the city.

What does Zoku mean?

Zoku is a Japanese word for Family, Tribe or Clan. In the 90’s in Japan, it used to be a cultural movement, where people with the same lifestyle live together.

Who is Zoku for?

Zoku has been designed for global nomads: international entrepreneurs, self-employed professionals, project managers, management consultants and free movers-and-shakers. They share entrepreneurial interests and are curious and open-minded. They can be individuals as well as groups like project teams, incubators, start-ups and due diligence teams.

What is the Zoku Loft?

The Zoku Loft is an ideal base of operation, offering all the comfort and efficiency you need. It is a spacious micro apartment for both living and working.

Setting a new standard in intelligent use of space, the Zoku Loft can be personalized and comes with all the necessary residential and business facilities. In a regular hotel room or studio apartment, the bed is always the most dominant object, while here the kitchen table is the paramount centre for laptops or candles and a bottle of wine. In the Zoku Loft, the sleeping area can be screened off to make it cozy, business-like or something in between.

Where is Zoku located?

Our first location is very centrally located on Weesperstraat, in the Eastern canal district of Amsterdam.

We’re a 3-minute walk away from public transport (metro, tram and bus) and close to all the important business and leisure areas. It is also within cuddling distance from many important educational institutes, culture, shops and entertainment.

What measures are you taking in regards to COVID-19?

Since the start of the pandemic, we’re spent day in and day out trying to reinvent our spaces and guest experience to make sure everything is as safe as possible for our Residents, guests and members.

To create the safest place in Amsterdam to be, we’ve adjusted our cleaning policies, retrained our Sidekicks on safety measures and adjusted the way we operate Zoku completely for the best experience possible.

In our latest guide, How To Zoku: Conquering COVID-19, you can see what’s changed, the new safety measures we’re taking, and how visitors can help us keep the Social Spaces and Residential Areas safe for everyone.

Is Zoku still open? Do you take new reservations?

Yes, we’re alive and kicking! You can do everything at Zoku again, from living, eating and working.

Please note, these are all on reservation basis now to ensure we don’t exceed capacity and can keep a safe environment for you and the people around you.

Can I use the bed in the WorkLoft?

We are currently renting out the WorkLofts as offices, so the bed is not available to use during the day. If you decide you want to pull an all-nighter, you are welcome to upgrade to an overnight stay and sleep in the bed for an additional €75,00. Otherwise the couch is available for power naps!

Am I allowed to work in the Social Spaces upstairs?

Due to the recent guidelines set by the Dutch government, it is currently not possible to use Zoku’s Social Spaces and Communal Working Spaces on the 6th floor. You are also welcome to book one of our meeting rooms if you want to work in a private space upstairs.

Do I need to pay online for my booking?

A credit card guarantee is sufficient. For all details regarding payments check out our Terms & Conditions.

Can I pay in advance for my stay?

Yes, for some rates you can choose to pay beforehand. When choosing a non-refundable rate, you pay for your entire stay upon booking. By booking a flexible hotel stay (up to 4 nights), you pay for your booking upon check-in, while for short and long stay rates (above 4 nights), 25% of your stay is deducted 7 days before arrival.
