I stayed for two nights at the exchange hotel I can say that it's location is very convenient. At walking distance from the train station, dam square and more or less all central Amsterdam atractions. Room had no window but was well cleaned. Relatively modern design and friendly staff. Even tho it's on the main road connecting train station and... More

The hotel is right on the central drag of the tourist area and within spitting distance of Amsterdam Central Station. We had room 119 which is the "handbag room". It was quirky and compact but absolutely spotless with a lovely wet room and separate toilet. The room faced the main road of the Damrak which was very busy with tourists... More

Tiny room with a view of the connecting corridor and a wall. Bathrooms walk in shower meant everything got soaked. No wardrobe just a coat hook. Nice big bed but had to climb over it to get in! Clean.

Nice, bright and overall clean interior in the hotel and the bistro. The room was tiny, but perfect. A big "plus" for us: Very close to Amsterdam Centraal. Also, old town area can be reached by feet. Absolute no noise at night, since our room was located towards the backyard.

1. Staff rude and unhelpful, 'upgraded our room' to a dirty, cheap, falling apart "4 star room' on check in, wouldn't 'downgrade' us to a different room as there were 'no rooms available' despite the fact that there was a sign outside saying that rooms were available. 2. Room was too hot, we were given single beds even though we... More

If you are not planning to spend too much time in your room then this is a great choice. Perfect location in the heart of the action. However Wifi was patchy and the room was tiny - very narrow. Each room has its own unique interior design.

The best thing about the hotel is its location. It's literally 100 mt to the Dam Square and most of museums around like train station and Red Light District. The rooms are really small but very fashionable. As long as you dont facny 4-5 star quality hotels, this is just the place. I strongly recommend you stay there if the... More

Convenience is the thing here. Very well located but my god are the rooms small. I have only ever been in one smaller room in a hotel, and that was in London. Sitting on the toilet my knees were raised agains the handbasin and I am not tall.
