A wonderful small hotel close to the heart of the city and about 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central train station, right on the pretty Herengracht canal near the centre and the museums, etc. Our room and bathroom were very cozy, comfortable and uber-stylish; we booked a standard room which was perfect for us as we just wanted a nice...

Very basic hotel, as the name mentions chic yet basic. The only negative point is that the stairs leading to the rooms are very narrow and there is no elevator. However the room interior design was nice and cozy. It is a good value for money close to the city

Wifi was spotty and dropped often but the hotel was very nice. We specifically reserved the room with the balcony and other than some noisy neighbors (and very thin walls) it was a nice stay. The continental breakfast was very basic, bread, ham, cheese, ginger bread (which was awesome!), orange juice, all you can drink coffee from the machine (which... More

We stayed here for the 3 nights at the start of July, and I must be honest...we were a little apprehensive having previously seen mixed reviews. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It's certainly chic, very stylish and has a lovely quirky vibe. We arrived quite early and weren't able to check in, so we dumped our rather... More

This deceptively small hotel is in the process of change again and is about to be called Max browns. Although it is dark inside you soon notice lots of little interesting bits about the place. The staff are great and extremely helpful. We arrived at about 10.30am having arrived by boat, they allowed us to check in and leave our... More

Recently renovated with copper roof in the entrance and arty, trendy decor - lots of wood and interesting lighting. The rooms are quite small but very stylish. Help yourself informal breakfast which is very nice. Best of all is the location, on a quiet street by the canal - 15 min walk from the central station and close to the... More

do not have one complaint, fab room looking over the canal, friendly staff and great breakfast. recommend and will be back. the rrom was very chic and it was fantastic to stay in a real amsterdam narrow house rather than purpose built hotel. it only has 2 stars as there is no lift but we would give 4 stars
