After arriving Centraal Station we thought it would be easy enough to find.....wrong!! Abit of trouble finding the hotel and all made worse by luggage but with the help from friendly passer by's they were able to point us in the right direction.
The reception are is very pretty with cool lighting. On the way to the room we were greeted with staircase which can be very difficult trailing suitcases up to reach your room, but its to be expected of Amsterdam. The rooms are very small, but you get what you pay for in Amsterdam. The hotel is on the side of a canal and we got a window with beautful canal view! Location is everything with this hotel as it is very central to EVERYTHING, within walking distince to all activities, bars and restaurants.
The breaskfast bufet was fine, nothing special, just some deluted drinks with hot drinks and a selection of breads and preserves. There are more expensive places to stay in Amsterdam and this was coming up fairly cheap enough, although still abit dear we expected abit more from Chic&Basic as the photos used on the website are abit misleading.
