Reviewed 18 June 2012 via mobile

A few steps from Central Station, the Dam, shopping streets and restaurants. Friendly helpfull staff. Recently renovated (or opened). Clean. Comfy bed. I don't know for all the rooms, but ours was very quiet since the window was facing the "back alley", wich is good since Damrak street is pretty busy and can be quite loud. A great experience. I would definitly go back!

Stayed May 2012, travelled as a couple

I loved The Exchange! Very friendly front desk service made for easy check in. The hotel was less expensive than many others in the immediate area. It's an easy walk from the Central Station. The room was charming with simple, but lovely decor. The cafe next door (which is owned by the hotel or vice versa), also had delicious food and desserts.

Two things to note. My room faced Damrak and the street noise was not completely filtered out by the window. I can sleep through anything, but if you are a light sleeper or don't plan to stay out late, perhaps request a room not facing Damrak. Also, the floors are concrete, which is great in summer, but might be a little chilly in winter.

This hotel is very small like most of the hotels on Damrak. We even missed it first time around as the entrance is hidden between little street cafes. Reception personnel was very helpful, polite and spoke perfect English (as pretty much anyone in Amsterdam). The room was small but very cute. Big bed occupies pretty much whole room with some space left for luggage but it is very comfy and we slept very well all 3 nights we stayed in the hotel. Would recommend it to couples as the hotel seems to be quite romantic but the rooms might be little small for families with children.

if you want a small design hotels, head to sebastian hotel, this one claim to have a nice design but it is not so great, on other hand, internet never worked in the room the entire time we were there, they only take credit cards (which is not a problem) but strange. same with the coffee shop downstairs, only credit cards. the rooms are super small with terrible view and the toilet must be the smallest in the world,. and on the top of that it is not cheap.

Firstly the staff are terrifically friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. It is situated close to the railway station and five minutes from tram stops on Damrak. It is very convenient as long as you don't mind being on the main thoroughfare into town from the station. We knew where it was when we booked but if you want scenic don't stay on Damrak.
Our room was a trompe l'oeil of an old hotel room. Truly fascinating but slightly dangerous when you try and lean on a shelf that isn't there or switch on a light switch that doesn't exist. Unfortunately the image of the old room had more facilities than the new one. There was a great bathroom with sandpaper rather than toilet paper but good fluffy towels. There was a rack to hang clothes but no other storage and no desk or table or shelf to place your laptop on when using the free wifi. I like arty hotels; I've stayed in lots but I do like a little furniture with the style. All in all interesting but I wouldn't stay there again
