Honestly, I didn't like the decoration in my room, but then again, I've been to many hotel where I didn't appreciate the decor. But I loved living here! The uniqueness for the place, the friendly staff, the central location and getting lost in the weird layout of the place. Highly recommended!

We used The Exchange for a week long trip to Amsterdam found it exactly as promised. It was a three star hotel at a fair price. The decorating, as described, was a bit eclectic but our room worked fine. Bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The rate their rooms from one to five stars and we... More

A five minute walk from the Central Train Station, this little gem of a hotel was in the perfect location for exploring Amsterdam. Very friendly, helpful staff, very clean, cute decor (we got the 'purse' room!), there was no noise through the windows although we were right on the street. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Wow! My fiancee and myself self stayed here about 3 weeks ago for a short, 3 night stay in Amsterdam. What a great hotel. I was a little nervous at first because I read on here that some of the rooms are hit or miss and that it is really based on the star room that you got. We got... More

I booked with Expedia as I find bundling air + hotel always a good deal. This is how I found this hotel. My husband and I stayed a week, and had a fantastic experience at this hotel. Our room was small and had no frills, but it was "more" than adequate. Our room was very clean, the bed was large... More

Stayed 3 nights in a room which for some reason had a gigantic bird cage made of bamboo. This made it extremely difficult to get into the bed and also restricted movement in an already small room. Can not believe the decoration.

I had to be in Amsterdam for work for a day and all the typical hotels were charging far more than an acceptable rate! I found The Exchange hotel and opted for a 3-star room. What a fun place! It is boutique and so unique! Location is terrific - very central, only about 3 blocks from Centraal Station, and 2... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights as part of a business trip, together with 4 colleagues. This taught me one thing about this hotel: your experience of it will depend in large parts on your luck of the draw when you get your room assigned... The hotel prides itself on the different room designs. My own room was... More

Unique approach to decor that will not be to everyone's taste. Rooms are comfortable but dark. Very quiet and great location. Service level good but not outstanding. Great for tourists who don't want corporate, but something different. Not for me but I can imagine some will love it.
