Excellent hotel right in the centre of the town and about 100m from the central station The bed was amazing and I had the best sleep I've ever had in a hotel Easy to miss the entrance and first impressions are underwhelming, but ignore that and take in the the quirkiness of the whole place and you'll be happy Lots...

Hotel Exchange, first thing is the entrance of the hotel is 95% to be missed out. It's a no frill , excellent designed and pure value for money hotel! Location: Chances are you might even pass near the entrance without even noticing, but the best landmark to remember is New York Pizza Outlet, as it's the only franchise on the... More

My family of four (wife + 2 kids aged 15 & 11) arrived at the hotel around 11am thinking that we may be accommodated for an early check-in as I booked through booking.com and requested for an early check-in. No reply was given by the hotel so we assumed all was well. To our surprise, the room was not available... More

Dear Mr. Jacob, thank you for sharing your experiences. We are disappointed to read your stay wasn't to your statisfaction. We always do early check ins when it's possible, but have to wait for our other guests to check out first before we can start cleaning the rooms.

Cannot fault the location. Great for a long weekend of mooching around the city. It's on a Main Street so easy to find too. Staff were also nice. On the downside we stayed in July on the top floor and without air conditioning the room was a bit of a struggle heat wise!! The room did have fans but it... More

When the main function of a hotel, to supply a place to sleep, ceases to function, I cannot give it a better than 1 grade. Yes, it was terribly hot in Amsterdam during the visit, but when it's warmer inside the room, than outside, and there is ABSOLUTELY no flow of air, it's unacceptable. Response from reception was: we know,... More

Really friendly staff, very clean room and amazing location! We also loved the cafe next door for a cheap, tasty breakfast! We stayed in one of the hotel's one star rooms and were pleasantly surprised at its size. The room did get quite hot but we were in the middle of a heatwave so this was to be expected.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
