Located close to all of the major attractions such as the Koninklijk Paleis and the Westkerk, The Chic & Basic Hotel Amsterdam is a reasonably priced option while still offering great service and amenities. Something in between a hostel and a hotel, the remodeled 300 year old building retains its old world charm and character, yet provides high speed internet and other modern services. It's name pretty much says it all!
General

The mulitilingual staff at the Chic & Basic Hotel Amsterdam can help you with all of your needs, including bike rental to go explore the nearby markets, directions to places like the Anne Frank House or Van Gogh museum, or assisting you with laundry service.



Location

In one of the city's most sought-after districts, the hotel is on the edge of Jordaan, and along the Herengracht canal. You are close to all major attractions, including Central Station and Leidseplein, and public transportation is at your fingertips.

Dining

Although there is a bar, but not a restaurant on-site, breakfast is offered and you are within easy walking distance to many bars, cafes, and restaurants.
Rooms

Each room in this historic building has its own shape and character. Room prices can vary depending on the size of the room and location within the building. Cable TV, safe, phone, air conditioning, hairdryer, and desk make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Max Brown Hotel Amsterdam Rooms

Superior Room
Contrasting colours, urban and classic, industrial and handmade. Love for the ornate detail and funky patterns, amen. Its here you will find a healthy dose of downtown hipster funk.
Standard Room
The standard room, the name alone pretty much sums it up. Squeeze into this room and two people can fit easily, neither too much nor too little. This is the room to ask for when working in your room is not on your agenda.
Superior Room Canal View
If you consider yourself as a huge fan of the outside living, just read the lines above and add the most perfect canal view of Amsterdam. Thats what we call the Superior Room Canal View.

Area description
Were a block from Amsterdam Central Station, a block from Dam Square, a block from the finest local shops at the nine streets and Haarlemmerstraat and an easy stroll to just about everywhere else. The Amsterdam Canal District area is likely everybodys favourite part of Amsterdam, and trusts us, we know what we are talking about.

Excellent location and sweet hotel

We had a lovely room at the very top of the hotel, overlooking one of the most beautiful canals in all of Amsterdam. Very simple, clean and comfortable room. Friendly and professional staff. Would have been nice to include breakfast or at least coffee/tea for the morning. I would definitely stay here again.

The staff were extremely helpful

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The location is great, not far from the station and in good walking distance to just about everything. Had a wonderful time there. Thanks to everyone for making my stay peaceful and relaxing. This is not a luxury hotel by any means but it has all the requirements for an excellent stay in Amsterdam

Wonderful location - walking distance

Wonderful location - walking distance from Central train station n ALL major tourists' sites. Brand new feeling as compared with many rundown facades n hotel lobbies we see as we walk around the vicinity. Only downside - no elevator - travellers, pls travel light otherwise be prepared to lug your big luggage up the narrow, steep stairway. Alert ! Housekeeping clears ALL empty containers, regardless if they obviously look like a personal travel-sized toiletry container !
