 "Wonderful stay"
Chic&Basic was a great stay. The staff was super helpful, the room cute and clean. If you have large baggage, be wary of the steep staircase.100% recommend this spot to anyone wanting to visit Amsterdam

 "Location, location, location"
We had a fab stay in Amsterdam. The hotel is in a great location on a beautiful canal, close to central station and close to some great bars and restaurants. The hotel itself offers cheaper excursions such as canal tours (LOVERS tours) which was good and just lasted the correct amount of time (1.25 hours). The breakfast was basic - coffee, toast, jam etc, all of which you make yourself , but that suited us. The rooms were on the small side but absolutely more than adequate if you are planning to sight see and spend most of your time out and about. I would stay here again and recommend it for the reasons stated.

Pros: We had stayed at this hotel on two previous occassions and the service had been excellent.
Cons: More basic than chic i'm afraid - having stayed there before we were really disappointed this time. we did not have the usual room - the one we had this time was cramped and noisy. for some reason breakfast was no longer provided which made it an expensive stay compared with other hotels on this trip.

 "Staff were very friendly and helpful, the communal areas of the hotel were..."
Pros: Staff were very friendly and helpful, the communal areas of the hotel were lovely. the location of this hotel was perfect, easy walking distance from the train station, right next to a beautiful part of the canal and right in the heart of things at night time. room was well equipped with a tv, hairdryer, and a great power shower. bed and pillows were comfy.
Cons: Room was a little bit of a let down, it was noisy, from outside and the rooms above. the room looked a little bit worn, needs a lick of white paint to remove all the scuff marks.

 "The hotel was in a good quiet location near to restraunts and bars"
Pros: The hotel was in a good quiet location near to restraunts and bars
Cons: The room was that small it should be classed as a cupboard. they said the room was en-suite but it was just a cupboard with a shower and a wash hand basin in the corner of it and a communal toilet down the corridor.
i have a bad heart and the room was on the top of 3 flights of steep stairs and when i told the girl on the reception this matter and asked someone to help me with my suitcase i was told i had to take them myself. i asked if i could possibly change to a room on a lower floor and the girl said no.
it was classed as bed and breakfast, but the breakfast was just a piece of toast and a cup of coffee.

 "Very friendly staff and excellent location"
Pros: Very friendly staff and excellent location. also, room(s) were spotlessly clean.
Cons: We were given a very small room for our first night and then 'upgraded' for our second night. we think that we were not given the correct room to start with, so this was not really and 'upgrade'
