“No Ordinary Hotel...a nice surprise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

I stumbled on this gem of a hotel very much by accident after my original hotel (The Atlanta - not a great place) screwed up my reservation.
What I found by pure chance was a funky art house, completely remodeled in the heart of Amsterdam's tourist district.
My room was delightfully bizarre - a bit tiny, but clean and very comfortable.
Flat screen TV and private ensuite were great bonuses.
The staff was fantastic and gave me a late checkout on my last day.
Grand Centraal is a 5 minute walk away, and all the city's main attractions are easily accessible.
Thumbs up. I would highly recommend The Exchange!

Room Tip: A room facing the street WILL be noisy, but at the back of the property you can hear a pin drop.

If you are travelling to Amsterdam and just want a normal room with bed and bathroom this place is really good, the staff is friendly and the installations are good. The room is small, but por 2 people just staying a few days it was perfect.

Great stay. Small rooms, but not a problem since we only slept there... Good central location. Extremely comfy beds! Very nice staff - took care of all our needs. Perfect for the globetrotter used to city centre location vs spacious high street hotel dilemma... ;-)

Room Tip: Try not to get rooms facing the Damrak. Noise could be a problem at nights.

Besides nice staff, the hotel is clean and have good location. I love this hotel as it is totally different from regular hotel. Not just providing a place for stay, the feeling of DESIGN is so strong.

The only drawback is the shower. It is not strong enough.

Room Tip: check size of room that you need
