Chic&Basic Amsterdam combines its contemporary design with the typical architecture of the city in a building with a 300 years old facade. This combination promises a unique experience. The modern and comfortable rooms are distributed on 3 floors and 3 buildings. The be_ yourself area invites to relax, have a coffee, surf in the internet and "be yourself". New Amsterdam Hotel is located in one of the most quiet and charming quarters of the city of Amsterdam. The property is positioned on the border of the Jordaan, which used to be a residential quarter, later transformed into a very popular destination, brimming with cafes and restaurants. Within a short walking distance from the hotel, you can find most of the major tourist attractions. The attentive and friendly staff will guide you, arrange sightseeing schedules and also ensures your stay is enjoyable.

Chic and Basic Hotel Amsterdam Rooms

Rooms
Our room categories are M, L and XL. The difference between the room categories is not its size, as it seems to be, but its location in the building and the view (canal view). The guest rooms are brand new, modern and at the same time comfortable. With our light system (LEDS) you can change the illumination according your mood. Due to the architecture of the building, every room has its own shape and character. The rooms are equipped with a TFT screen, Internet high speed connection and bathroom.

Very good location and excellent value

Location is great - at intersection of two canals one block from main street and three blocks from Centraal Station. Room was extremely clean, bed was great, white, clean, lights and amenities very convenient. Staff was very frendly and helpful, front desk guy show me where the tea/coffee machine was, and where the breakfast was served , and it was done in 5 seconds. The whole experience was very good. Will try to stay there again (probably next week). Price was very good for Amsterdam also - like 70 euros.

Greek restaurant, soup, salad, souvlaki plus pitcher of rose house wine - 17 euros! Also Wok to Walk (several locations nearby) is the very good option.

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.

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 !
