4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

I recently visited Madrid with my girlfriend. We had pre-booked with Chic and Basic and subsequently secured a favourable rate due to the early booking. The hotel we found to be comfortable, no frills just plain basic with a comfortable bed and good clean shower facilities. The hotel staff were friendly and willing to help with any queries we had. The bonus of the hotel is that breakfast is included in the nightly rate and the help yourself kitchen area allows for visitors to grab fruit or a coffee at any time of day which we found to be a major bonus. The location of the hotel allows for easy access to all of Madrid, 5mins walk to Sol which is the centre of all the action. The hotel is close to metro stations and restuarants. I would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone and would certainly stay at the hotel again should i find myself in Madrid.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on higher floors and for rooms with a double bed when travelling with a partner

Is well located in the center of Madrid, but not very well maintained and a little bit pricey for what it offers.

Lovely clean room with eco friendly bathroom. Great common area with help yourself breakfast and snacks. Use of computer and wifi. In a great location in a street full of tapas bars, near Atocha but also easy walk to Plaza Santa Ana and Plaza Mayor.

Hostal Chic & Basic Clours is situated in the centre of the city, about 5 minutes walking to the metro Anton Martin. Near hostal you can find lots of café.
But it was difficult for us to find hostal, because it doesn`t have it`s own entrance and visible signboard.
Hostal is situated on the third floor, but it doesn`t have an elevator.
As a minus I want admit , that the rooms in the hotel are VERY small. We`ve got room in a blue colour, it was very small. I don`t think that this hostal will be a good variant for those people for whose a comfort is on the first place.
The walls are very tiny, I read about it in web before our trip, so I had a chance to evidence it. We heard how people talked in the kitchen. But as a plus «Blue room» `s windows looks into the courtyard.
So, in the rooms you have TV, air-conditioner, safe. If you need hair-dryer you should ask about it staff.

About morning shower I don`t have anything good to say, because in the morning we practically didn`t have hot water at all.
I want to say that for the breakfast you can have anything that you will find in the kitchen, for example, cornflakes, fruits,milk, juice, bread, cheese, sausages. Also you can have coffee and tea always.
Staff is very friendly, communicate, helpful.
Hostal Chic & Colours have free-wifi.
In the and, I want to say that all service we received from this hostal doesn`t cost 83 euro per night, imho.

We took this that hostal because of his Location. Its situated very close to the central squares like Sol and Plaza Mayor and (it was very important) its close to Atocha Rail Station. The nearest Metro Station is Anton Martin. But you have to know how to find that hostal because the signboard is very imperceptible. The hostal is situated on the 3 floor without any lift.
Rooms: all the rooms have differenet colors. We received the Blue Room. Its a small room. With TV and air-conditioner. The toilet is very narrow and it was not comfortable to enter inside it. Windows looks to the courtyard.
Breakfast its selfservice. In the fridge you can find some juices, milk with different fat content, yogurts, cheese and sausages. Also you can find cornflakes, bread, croissants and marmalade. All the time you can use a coffee machine.
+Good location, Wi-fi its free, in the hall you can find a computer with internet, staff its very friendly and competent. You have a key of the front door and don't need to worry how you will enter inside.
- Small toilet and a breakfast its really poor for the price we've paid.

Pros: Location, Location, Location - No better place to say. You are steps away to plaza del sol and several metro lines. Extremely easy to find. Tapas bars surround you and it's a great base camp for a trip around the historic section of Madrid. The staff are also extremely helpful and friendly.

Cons: Underwhelming decor. WiFi was down the entire stay. Breakfast was as minimum as you can get. A bit pricey for what is really is.
