I stayed here with a friend at the end of November in 2012. The overall experience was satisfactory, rooms were tidy, service level & commitment was above acceptable. All rooms are decorated in a unique way, which some people may find a very attractive feature for a hotel (I'm not included to those). Comfortable beds, very decent location, no noise... More

We booked this hotel at (almost) the last minute as we had been offered tickets for the Benfica v Chelsea match at the Amsterdam Arena on May 15th. Naturally we were expecting prices to be high, given the sheer volume of people staying in Amsterdam for the match, but nothing prepared us for the shoddy (practically non-existent) service. On top... More

Perfect location. We stayed at the Exchange on an incredibly busy weekend. Unlike some of the larger hotels, there's just a small door to enter, but the rooms, at least ours, was far away from noisy, busy Damrak. We were in Europe for 2 weeks and stayed in several cities and the room here was actually much larger than any... More

Stayed in this property twice within of weeks as a stopovers in Amsterdam (one night on each visit) On the first visit I stayed in the "3 star Suite", the room I stayed was in the 5th floor, had paper mache designs. It would be ideal for someone who did not carry too many bags as the rooms were quite... More

Tue-Thu 14-16 May 2013; 2 twin rooms; 4 blokes - CHELSEA Europa final. I originally booked this via EXPEDIA, but then made changes via email direct with the hotel - EMAIL and PHONE comms were great! I chose it for its fabulous location, half-way between Central Stations and Dam Square - each are only about 1/4 mile (500m) away. The... More

We were intially very worried when we landed on the manically busy Damrak to check in to this hotel. We needn't have worried at all. Although the Damrak is crazy, busy and noisy the Exchange is an oasis of unusual calm in the middle of it! If you are claustrophobic or find small spaces frustrating this is NOT the place... More

This hotel is superbly situated only minutes from central station and dam square. The room we booked was "superior" and for a ridiculous amount of money we had a very small room containing only a large bed (admittedly one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in) two slatted stools as bedside tables and an easel type contraption to...

You get more than what you pay for. This is a great hotel, rooms a bit small but the location makes up for that. Staff could not be better, they see to your every need and are so friendly and helpful. Hallways are really funky as are the themed rooms. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here one night as a layover. The staff were friendly and were able to address all our questions right away. The room and bathroom were clean and even included a safe box. The shower was hot and the bed (1 star room) was comfortable and warm. The hotel is within walking distance of delicious food and the red... More
