My boyfrined and I loved Hotel The Exchange, we plan to stay next trip. The location is Excellent and we loved the King Size Bed! The room was really clean and the Bathroom was Great! Some will say not much room as we were in the 1 Star room, but we really didn't need to walk about the room. If you are going to stay longer than 2 nights, you may want a bit more space so go for a 2 or 3 star room at Hotel The Exchange. Cheers!

Room Tip: Rooms get larger 1 star being smallest. Rooms at the back are very quiet, we never heard a sound.

This is a great little hotel with lovely staff, all situated in the perfect location - only 5 minutes walk from the train station and right on Damrak.

There are lovely design features all over the hotel, giving it a trendy, artsy feel. I stayed in a budget room that may be a little simple for some, but it still has all you need, everything is super clean, it all feels new and the beds are really comfortable.

There are no eating facilities in the hotel itself but there is a cafe next door that is run by the same people... and also a groovy little shop next to that with all kinds of products made by Dutch designers and also a Sushi restaurant downstairs. This is why the Exchange should be seen as a whole concept that is trying to do something a little different from other hotels in Amsterdam.

And better still, you don't have to be super-rich to stay there but the super-rich should still enjoy the unique environment.

Room Tip: You can choose different star ratings depending on your budget and requirements.

It was a pleasant stay at the nice design hotel. It is a new hotel, so some things have to be done still, but not mayor things. It all looks nice and the location is marvelous, right in the centre. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Each room has a special design, designed by students of Amsterdam Design Academy. So inform at the h...

Fantastic location, close to Central Station and near many shops, restaurants and cafes. Good value for money. Room was small but perfect for a short stay and the room was decorated simply but enjoyable. Everything was clean and tidy, had no problems and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is situated in a great location, on the Damrak with the Central Station at one end and Dam Square at the other, so it's really easy to walk everywhere. The bedroom was really funky, very modern with cool decoration taking over one wall. The hanging space was minimalist to say the least though, as the 'wardrobe' only had 3 hangers, so lucky we were only staying two nights! The room was spotless and very spacious. The shower was excellent and the beds were very very comfy. All staff were courteous and polite. I would recommend this hotel if you're in amsterdam for a fun weekend and want to be located closely to the centre - beware if you're a light sleeper though as the trams and traffic outside were quite audible!

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the back of the hotel or on a higher floor for a quieter nights sleep
