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 1 star room through Expedia for a very reasonable price so we were expecting a tiny room and tiny bed, so we were very pleasantly surprised to get a queen bed in a fairly big room facing Damrak. We were very grateful for the upgrade.
The ceilings were a bit low (and coming from someone who is barely 5 feet tall, that's saying something). They were however very clean and nicely furnished and decorated. There is safe in the room and the hairdryer is in the safe. There is no shower curtain, so just be careful not to flood the room when you shower.
The hotel is conveniently located close to many tourist spots, and there are tonnes of shops and restaurants near the hotel. The tram runs down Damrak (so it can be quite noisy even late into the evening), but we found everything to be within walking distance anyway.
We loved our visit to Amsterdam and will most certainly return, I hope we get another great deal at Hotel The Exchange when we come back because I would definitely want to stay at this hotel again.
