 "Just Nice"
I've stayed in a 3 stars room, and from the description of the hotel I expected my room to be something special, but it was just covered with pink curtains and black ribbons, which felt a bit simple comparing to the other photos I've seen, plus it felt a bit dusty.
Of course it was more special than the average hotel room, but it felt a bit overpriced.
The location is great - about 7 minutes walk from the central station, so it was very easy to get a tram/bus to almost anywhere in the city, and getting a train back to the airport with no need for a cab. Plus it is just on the main tourist street, so there's a lot of things to do around but yet it is pretty quiet in your room.
The only real problem I've had was loud music from one of the stores below the hotel which was carried to my room through the ventilation holes, and was stopped only at 10pm when the store closed. Seemed like it was the first time someone complained about this issue... Anyway, the staff was very kind and helpful.
Overall - a nice and comfortable stay, nothing more, nothing less.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was very funky and modern. Loved the fluffy bedding!! Hotel location is central to everything. I was super happy to find out that it is in the shopping district and had a great time doing bargain shopping!!

 "Perfect location"
Stayed here just one night, checked in around midnight and left by 11am so it really was just a spot to sleep. That being said it was perfectly clean and tidy. Excellent location close to main station. We stayed in a 1 star room but it was all we needed. We were going to an all day festival so they did see if they could accommodate an early check in when we arrived at 10.30am but the place was full. They did store our bags though and were very helpful regarding directions.

 "Great location for seeing the city"
Great hotel location just a few minutes walk from the train station, 5 minutes to Dam square and the red light district. Comfy beds and room was clean but basic (stayed in 2/3 star) no breakfast included but that's fine as we wanted to explore different places on offer and you can go to the joining cafe next door if you don't want to look for somewhere. It's card only so make sure you don't only have cash you can pay in euro or sterling. Friendly and helpful staff. Windows were a bit draughty but apart from that great stay

 "Quirky place to stay and very central."
Not so much a hotel more a building with rooms each with their own star rating. Each room has been designed by art students and entirely different. We had a 5 star room on the 7th floor which was both spacious and quiet and covered in hessian! Not so sure it would be quite so quiet on the lower floors. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom had good quality toiletries and bathrobes and always lots of instant hot water. Staff were able to book us advance tickets for various museums with no problem for the same day which is worth doing to avoid the queues. Recommended if you don't mind quirky rooms.

 "Weekend break"
I wanted a place on Damrak, comfortable, quiet, good price and customer focussed rather than to make as much as they can. This place ticks all boxes. Was lucky enough to get the Marie Antoinette room. Fabulous. Warm, quiet, good wet room. Only downside was no chair so had to raise the corsetry to sit on the bed. Staff are excellent. No problem in leaving bags before checkin or after checkout. Food next door is really tasty but a little on the expensive side, but local Amsterdamers use it so must be good. I want to tell people how good this place is...but also want to keep it to myself!

 "Quirky little place"
Ok so we read quite a few reviews before we went to this hotel, mostly mocking the size or the sound. If you are going to stay in this hotel then like us you have to appreciate it is a hotel designed by art students. It is so quirky and different, it is not about the size of the hotel as there are many bog standard large rooms available in other hotels. Its about making your stay special. The hotel is in a great location, literally a 5 minute walk from the train station, on a main stretch of shops, cafes, and restaraunts. Its a 10- 15 minute walk from all the main squares such as Rembrandt square. We preferred walking as you get to see the beautiful city and ts buildings on your way, but you can get a taxi just across the road from the hotel. The staff are very friendly, and if you need anything they are very happy to help. We stayed in a 3 star room and it was lovely. We couldn't hear no noise from outside except the church bell ringing in the morning. The bed was also so comfortable.Great Hotel. Great Location. Great Price.

 "Superb location, modern rooms and a good night's sleep"
The Exchange was a fantastic hotel for our short break to Amsterdam. It's located conveniently on Damrak, the main street leading south from just outside Amsterdam Centraal Station- just above the Dana Kebab Factory. Don't let that put you off though, our room was double-glazed and fitted out with all new TV, new wet room with shower, toilet and towel rail and the most comfortable bed i've ever stayed in.There's 24/7 check in and the same company own the adjacent Stock! Cafe and Options! Trinket Store. I'd thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet, centrally-located break in Amsterdam and who are looking for real value for money.
