“Pretty much perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Such a good concept. No hassle, comfy beds, wifi, nice simple decor and helpful staff.

If you're planning in staying in your room all day it wouldn't be ideal. But for sleep and a couple of breaks during the day it's perfect.

Would like to see more budget boutique hotels like this around Europe.

Dont stay here if you want large rooms, huge bathrooms, balconies, or large spaces to lounge around indoors. This is NOT your place. However, if you are in Amsterdam for the right reasons and lust to be outside soaking it all in, you will not mind the small rooms, and tight quarters. The hotel is well laid out, thoughtful, and down right crafty. Incredible location, to just about everything. Rates are fair. We were very suprised at how cool this place was for our stay. If you are a couple or single, stay here, you'll love it!

Room Tip: Spice it up, get a room that overlooks the street!

First of all: it's all about the location. At the hart of the city near the central station, red light district, one of the gay areas. Every room is different. Our first room was like a boudoir. I liked it as it was very cosy but my partner found it too small. Just went over the reception. There were some empty rooms. They gave us the keys of several rooms and could pick one we liked. Of course we had to pay something extra as the room was bigger. Excellent place to stay!

Small rooms, big prices. All the amenities worked and it was roughly what I expected. We stayed in a "2 star" room and didn't spend a ton of time in there. Let's be real, it was a glorified dorm. The mattress was creaky and uncomfortable, only had one chair, a couple hanging lamps, and a bathroom small enough to relieve yourself/shower/brush your teeth all in one sitting.

If you're familiar with Amsterdam and don't care for the bustle and tourism of city center, I'd stay elsewhere. I hadn't been in a decade and figured this seemed like a good central location, which it is! But I rediscovered the city offers a lot more if you're willing to walk a little further from the train station. I'd imagine your dollar goes a bit further elsewhere as well.

We booked the 2 stars room which priced reasonably as the hotel located strategically in town, all the places are just minutes of walking distances. Shopping streets are just behind the hotel and District 5 is just minutes away. There is no aircond in the hotel but Amsterdam weather is cooling at night with window open the rooms get cold too.

Amsterdam is a very small city where everywhere is within walking distance, if you are too tired you may hop on those trams.

Very comfortable beds and pillows and love our stays in Hotel the Exchange. The cafe in the hotel has the best coffee in town.

Room Tip: Request for higher floor, if lower floor dont face the main street as it gets a little noisy.

Thought we'd booked a lovely airy room with a terrace, but ended up with quite a stuffy little room at the very top of the hotel with only one window that opened and no air-con on what was quite a hot day. It cost me £350 for one night! Must do more research next time!

It 'the perfect hotel if you want to spend and the right to live in the city as it is located in the center and near the train station. I found it very comfortable beds.
The pillows, the comforter very soft.
