I took my fiancée to Amsterdam for his 30th Birthday and we stayed at The Exchange. We arrived before check in time, but the room was ready anyway so we were able to check in straight away and get exploring....great start to the trip.
Like other reviews have mentioned, the Hotel is easy to miss if you're not looking carefully but this is true for all the other hotels along this busy main street. This did not bother us at all.
My favourite thing about this Hotel is how it is different from any other hotel I've stayed in. It's all about art and design and you feel compelled to walk around the maze of corridors and up the narrow stairs just to see if there are any hidden surprises such as the different communal areas on each floor. Even the little, cosy lift was a burst of colour when it's doors opened to us.
The room itself was very modern and light with wet room style bathroom. Most importantly though for a city centre and main street location... it was quiet, resulting in a great nights sleep after a long day and night of activities. The Queen size bed was very comfortable too.
I picked this Hotel because of it's central location and price compared to other establishments, and I felt I made the right choice. Would definitely return!!
