Me and my boyfriend visited here in 2013 and was amazed. The only thing I have to say is that the hotel's entrance is sooooo narrow that it's difficult to spot (we walked past three times!) basically it is on the street directly in front of Amsterdam Central so it is the perfect location. Everything is within walking distance although... More

The hotel was a 5 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal station, the entrance is a little bit hard to find so keep your eye open for it! Check in was a breeze and the staff were very helpful and polite. They don't accept cash so make sure to bring a credit card. I am pretty certain that we booked a... More

This was the absolute worst hotel experience I have ever had. DO NOT spend your money here. I had high expectations for such a quirky, well located boutique hotel with a catchy slogan like "rooms dressed like models". Here is a short recap of my first night: IF YOU PLAN ON GETTING SLEEP- DO NOT STAY HERE. The windows facing... More

Dear Petra, we are disappointed to read that your stay in one of our 2 star rooms wasn't to your satisfaction. Hotel the Exchange has 61 unique rooms ranging from one to five stars. The number of stars refers to the size of the room and the amenities. We would very much like to welcome you back in the future,... More

It was really trendy with a special love of fashion. It was full of inspiration and the rooms were furnished by students at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. Even though design comes before comfort which was what I expected, I do recommend Hotel the Exchange to fashion lovers!

Be aware when booking that the rooms are 'made up like models'. You should expect the rooms to be quirky, comfortable and fabulous. While themed/dressed up rooms might not be to everybody's taste, the room we stayed in I found modern, tasteful, bright and comfortable. We booked less than two weeks before arrival and paid approximately £120 for the two... More

This hotel is the worst I ever saw. For 150 euro a night there was a 1 star standard in a 4 star room. I can't even discribe in words how creepy and ugly the room was. I stayed there one night by myself and 2 times somebody tried to enter my room. Would not recommend it ever to nobody.
