“2 star room was small but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

We stayed in a 2 star room. It was as expected - very small and basic room (not much room around the bed), small but clean bathroom with decent fittings, small TV, and heating. Beware for summer stays that there is no air-conditioning. We faced into the centre of the buildings on the block (i.e. not onto a street), meaning there was not street noise. However, there was plenty of noise from people climbing the stairs and when talking the the hallway. Great location being only a few minutes walk from Centraal Station (direct train to airport). The staff were very friendly and helpful.

A few steps from Central Station, the Dam, shopping streets and restaurants. Friendly helpfull staff. Recently renovated (or opened). Clean. Comfy bed. I don't know for all the rooms, but ours was very quiet since the window was facing the "back alley", wich is good since Damrak street is pretty busy and can be quite loud. A great experience. I would definitly go back!

I loved The Exchange! Very friendly front desk service made for easy check in. The hotel was less expensive than many others in the immediate area. It's an easy walk from the Central Station. The room was charming with simple, but lovely decor. The cafe next door (which is owned by the hotel or vice versa), also had delicious food and desserts.

Two things to note. My room faced Damrak and the street noise was not completely filtered out by the window. I can sleep through anything, but if you are a light sleeper or don't plan to stay out late, perhaps request a room not facing Damrak. Also, the floors are concrete, which is great in summer, but might be a little chilly in winter.

This hotel is very small like most of the hotels on Damrak. We even missed it first time around as the entrance is hidden between little street cafes. Reception personnel was very helpful, polite and spoke perfect English (as pretty much anyone in Amsterdam). The room was small but very cute. Big bed occupies pretty much whole room with some space left for luggage but it is very comfy and we slept very well all 3 nights we stayed in the hotel. Would recommend it to couples as the hotel seems to be quite romantic but the rooms might be little small for families with children.

if you want a small design hotels, head to sebastian hotel, this one claim to have a nice design but it is not so great, on other hand, internet never worked in the room the entire time we were there, they only take credit cards (which is not a problem) but strange. same with the coffee shop downstairs, only credit cards. the rooms are super small with terrible view and the toilet must be the smallest in the world,. and on the top of that it is not cheap.
