We arrived from the airport late at night and from the central train station, it was a 6 minutes walk! The guy at the reception was very cool! He gave us a map of the city, telling us where can we grab something to eat even at 1am. The room was... original!! For the cheap price we paid even during high season, we were very happy and would stay there again for sure. The room was sparkling clean, included a safe. The only thing, no air conditioning but the nights are a bit chilly in Amsterdam so you just have to open the window to get a fresh breeze. I recommend this funky and design hotel to everyone!

Stayed here in room 517 which is the top room in the eaves in the photo. Great location for everything however it was a noisy at night. In fairness this was because we had the windows open due to the heat and also it was bank holiday weekend so was busy with rowdy groups who were NOT hotel guests but were noisy down in the street as they walked past No fault of the hotels and didn't really bother us as we could lie in.

The room was by modern and very clean. We stayed in the 4 star room.

There are no drawers so we hung out clothes on the hatstand which is covered in hangars for this purpose and rest stayed in case. I would recommend this hotel if you have tons of luggage.

We loved this hotel but would ask for a quiet non Damrak facing room next time if it was summer and needed windows open.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room not facing Damrak if going when warm

Our 3rd time in Amsterdam and this is the hotel we will return to. Amazing location, very clean, comfortable bed & bedding and friendly & helpful staff. We stayed in a 2 star room which was fine! Daily maid service still and fresh towels daily. Only negative is no storage in our room at all apart from 5 coat hangers on a wall. Also no hot drink making facilities, they did put a kettle in our room on my request but no mugs etc. overall tho, I would highly recommend.

The room smelled of fresh paint.
Breakfast not included. The table service is not working well, the waiter always forgets something. From the website it looked like a fairy tale of contemporary art but in fact the reality is' another.

I booked a 4 star room at 190 euro/night excluding breakfast
room is on Damrak-side --> single glass make you feel as if you feel on the street --> loud drunken tourists at night and when they go sleep the tram is back

good quality bedding

super location

friendly reception and easy check-in

Room Tip: request a room at the back, if in front forget the sleep!

Despite having a standard room, we were very happy indeed with the Hotel the Exchange. It's very central location means that there is a lot of noise from the hustle and bustle of a big city (which I do not mind at all, although some may). The hotel is exceptionally clean - my most important criteria when at a hotel - and although my room was basic, it was very comfortable. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and would see to your needs. All in all, I would, without hesitation, recommend this hotel for a city break.

Room Tip: I am usually a little worried about booking a basic standard room. Don't be.

Im the manager of an Australian Tour company and we have stayed in many hotels over the world. Hotel Exchange looked after our group over 4 nights in Amsterdam and our customers could not have been happier. From the booking stage with Bas van Rooij to the lovely receptionists Nessa, the staff were amazing.
Thank you once again! see you next year.
