“Small Hotel - right in the centre of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

A small hotel, dedicated to 'green environment', and fair trading, in a recycled 200 year old warehouse, modern appointments. Small rooms (who stays in rom but to sleep), right in the heart of Amsterdam, 2 minutes from Central station, trams pass the door, small coffee shop on ground floor for breakfast or snacks but restaurants everywhere you look, lots of shopping opportunities surround the hotel, hop on/off buses just outside Central Station.
Great hotel, great location

I choose this hotel for its location and for its price. I was positively surprised by the room. It was very nice and "trendy" despite being the cheapest option. the staf was helpful and friendly. the only negative point is the entrance to the hotel from the main street. It is difficult to spot (very small sign) and the corridor that leads to the recpetion is not very pleasant. But when you get to the above floors and to your room then you are pleasantly surprised.

This hotel was recommended to us at the tourist desk at the railway station as a 4 star hotel. We had a white room which was very small and dirty. The photos on this site are quite nice so maybe we were unlucky with our room. However it was expensive and not very friendly.

This is an excellently located hotel, very close to the station and within walking distance of most of the city. Having individually designed rooms is a clever way to disguise the fact that this hotel is actually fairly basic, almost no frills. But it doesn't matter, the hotel is cool, clean, the staff are friendly and our room was cosy and quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

We halved stayed at several places on Damrak and been disappointed by the rooms at most places. That is NOT the case with the exchange!! The rooms are lovely and very clean!! Our room was also quiet and very private. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay!!

I loved staying at the Exchange and would gladly stay here again. We had the Rembrandt Room, which is done up all in white. The bed itself is surrounded by a cocoon of curtains, which is both visually striking and cozy. It was a charming, clean and spacious room that was perfect for us. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The hotel is also in a great location - only blocks from Centraal Station - and surrounded by shops and cafes so there's plenty to do right around the hotel area. The cafe downstairs was very convenient - great for a quick breakfast before heading out to see the city. They have excellent croissants!

We stayed here for only one night, our first visit to Amsterdam, Netherlands. We were looking for a clean room, friendly helpful staff, close to Central Train Station, and that is what we got. We opted for the mid price room, one step above the smallest room, and we are glad we did. Being from Canada, we were warned that hotel rooms in Europe are very small compared to Canada. Still this was probably the smallest hotel room we ever stayed in! We had enough room to get around the bed, with nothing to spare. And no view. But it filled our needs, very clean, friendly staff, excellent location in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Lower price rooms are very, very small.
