“clean and cosy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

The hotel is a short walk from the Central train station. The rooms are small but clean, pleasant and unique. Wifi is included in the price and overall atmosphere is cozy. I would stay again and recommend to visitors looking for something practical and affordable but with some style.

Stayed February 2014, travelled solo

We stayed for just 1 night at The Exchange and couldn't fault it for what we needed.
Excellent location, walking distance from the Central Station which was great for us as we were short on time and just wanted to dump our things and go!
About a 5 mins walk to Dam Square in one direction, 5 mins to The Red Light District in another. Directly opposite the Stock Exchange so easy to find on maps.
A refreshingly different layout and style of hotel, very quirky rather than boutique as some people on here seemed to be expecting. Winding corridors with fab fashion artworks on every floor. We arrived very early before check in but was pleasantly surprised our room was ready so checked in straight away. We were in 'the handbag room' as we called it, perfect for 2 girls! very simple, very clean. Everything you needed really. And a safe in the room to use free of charge, always a bonus addition. Friendly and helpful staff. Great little cafe attached to the hotel, very convenient. What more could you want really?!

It was a great stay at your hotel. Your staff was really helpful and cooperative in nature. And my special thanks to Ms. Rossana and Mr. Steven as they helped us in keeping our luggage safe and provided us a lot of information during our tour which turned out to be very helpful.

Recommended for solo traveller or young couple.

Besides a great location, the staff is very nice and helpful and the beds and pillows are just perfect! The rooms are nicely decorated. This time we got a very cute black and white room. We stayed there twice and when we travel to Amsterdam again The Exchange will surely be our choice again.

Once a year some Amsterdam hotels invite the citizens to spend the night with them. So you can stay in a hotel in Amstedam for a sweet price and special events and activities occur. I think its even harder to pick a hotel, because you're looking for an unique experience. After all, you've got a room and a bed at home. We definitely found an unique experience at the Exchange hotel because they have decorated rooms as models. We stayed at a room which was completely white and framed. For a soft touch they used textile patches as wall paper. The room was clean, but it's hard to keep an entirely white room white. The bed was nice and soft. A simple shower curtaim would be nice and more friendly for the house keeping.

We also had the opportunity to have a look in their 'masterpieces', to talk to a designer and to chill out at the next door cafe Stock.

I loved the creative and original atmosphere which I experienced during the whole stay and at all the spots.

Loved the design of the room. Thought it was a unique boutique style hotel at an affordable price. Couldn't have asked for a better location as everywhere is easily within walking distance and staff were friendly and helpful.
