Trendy hotel with a nice concept. The location is great, close to the Dam, the Centraal and the Red Light district. It has an elevator - which is definitely a plus in central A'dam. The entrance is a bit difficult to find, since it's just a door (we used the kebab place beside as a point of reference). Each room is unique and has been decorated by fashion students. We booked a 1-star room for one night and, since all were occupied, we were upgraded to a 3-star. The room itself was very basic and small, with no minibar and few amenities, but quiet (facing the back) and clean. Some people may not like the decor though. Ours had the walls totally covered with pink fabric and black ribbons. It was a bit dark and claustrophobic but it seems that there are rooms with a nice feel.

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.
