We booked our stay at The Exchange for 2 nights as part of their 50% off opening promotion. We were in a '2 Star Comfort' room which was covered entirely in a mauve fabric, ruffled down the walls. The lighting for the room came from 4 beaded chandeliers, which gave a warm feeling to the room.The bed was huge and comfortable and took up most of the room. The bathroom had an open shower, and always had clean towels and shampoo.
The common areas were interesting as well, with a sewing machine set up for use, and winding staircases that linked to each floor, making every level feel like a maze.
The staff were friendly and helpful, providing a map of Amsterdam when we arrived. The cafe and store located next door were also interesting, stocked with a variety of design items.
The location is fantastic, right on the Damrak. It was easy to find from Amsterdam-Centraal train station, and made getting around the city very simple. It was also handy to have the hotel located so centrally, as we could come back for a break from the cold throughout the day.
Overall really enjoyed our 3 nights at The Exchange. A great place, great location and would stay here again, but probably not worth more than we paid with the 50% discount.
