As per Dutch law, it is not allowed to smoke inside the building. But don’t worry: we do have a lovely roof terrace where smoking is allowed. We have to charge a minimum deep-clean fee of €250 if you smoke in your loft.
As Zoku is a working-living hybrid, we are not ideal for children. If your family is in town, we do have baby cots available (age 0 – 3) and also can provide foldaway children’s mattresses (age 4 – 12) upon request at a surcharge (please note – a loft can accommodate a maximum of one infant or child). Please note: the Zoku Loft and Bunk cannot accommodate children and infants, but the Zoku Loft XL and the Zoku Room can.
Our Lofts and Rooms are made to create individual and inspiring homes. They are not suitable for more than 2 adults or children (as we only have king size beds in our Lofts, we advise only couples or very familiar friends to share), which is our maximum occupancy for all Lofts and Rooms. The Rooms do not have pull out sofa’s nor the capacity to place an extra bed. Staying with more than 2 adults or children: Please note: As Zoku is a working-living hybrid, we are not ideal for children. However, you can book multiple Lofts next to each other (if you want to be near), or book a Zoku Loft XL connecting to a Zoku Room, to create a spacious 2-bedroom apartment for up to 4 adults. If we do notice lofts or rooms being over occupied, Zoku holds the right to immediately end the stay of all guests in the particular Room/Loft and charge any additional incurred cleaning costs.
We want everyone to feel at home at Zoku. And just like every home, we do have some house rules…

A place you can call a second home, even on your first visit.
So much more than a long stay hotel. It’s a neighborhood.
Where the neighbors borrow more than a cup of sugar.
They share ideas and ambitions.
They mix the local lowdown with the global highlights.
Where the word on the street keeps you streets ahead.
For this is a ‘good company’ company where everyone can bring their dreams to the table.
Where those busy connecting the world can catch up with each other and the scene surrounding them.
Smart and uncompromising, Zoku is a hive of smart lofts and friendly spaces, designed so you can stay connected, well rested and throw yourself into your work, your play and our city.
This is a place that is furnished to fit, not to split.
Encouraging each other to live, not exist.
To dream, not sleep.
To smarten up, rather than dumb down.
To go at it together, rather than alone.
Together we can work hard, play strong and rest easy.
Whilst we blur borders, combine cultures and live our dreams.
