This hotel has a great location! It's a 5 minute walk from the Amsterdam Central Train station, 2 minutes to Dam Square, 1 minute to the main shopping street, 10 minutes to the Anne Frank House, 12 minutes to the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum. And the best fries in Amsterdam are about 4 doors down from the hotel. You... More

As for any other cities that are packed with tourists, finding a decent place for a low price is virtually impossible. I had the fortune to visit this hotel and I highly recommend it. I was on the 7th floor and had a good size room, nicely decorated with a unique style. Both the room and the bathroom were clean... More

The Exchange is a really cool hotel in a fantastic location. We originally could only stretch to a 3 star room but on arrival we were given a free upgrade to 5 star which was a great start to our stay. The room was excellent, great size for Amsterdam where most rooms are quite small. Very clean and stylish. The... More

So I booked this hotel because I figured it would be nice, being that we were visiting Amsterdam for the first time, I wanted something different. This hotel is certainly different. The room we booked (the Tiger Dragon Slayers Room) was small. It was different, and it kinda of threw me off AT FIRST. But it had EVERY SINGLE THING... More

This hotel is in an excellent location, a short walk from the Central train station, sight seeing tours across the street, the red light district, numerous bars, cafes and restaurants within a block or two as well as high end shopping a block in the other direction. The staff was very welcoming and the room unique and very comfortable.

I loved the decor in this unique hotel and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The only thing that was a bit annoying was the noise effect coming up through the open stairwell. It seemed that both nights it was actually the staff talking and laughing loudly at the front desk. The attached cofee shop is nice but very limited... More

depending on the room you get, you may have a fantastic experience or a not so exciting experience. I stayed here for 6 nights in a strangely decorated room that I could hardly find the toilet inside my room! It took me a while to actually understand the set-up, ie everything is hidden or covered behind a weird thin curtain... More
