This is our second time staying at the Exchange Building. We will never stay anywhere else when visiting Memphis! It is just like home!! Everyone is friendly and helpful! It is close to everything downtown. Thank you once again! We will see you again!!
The apartment was perfect - spacious, comfortably furnished and complete with all the basics. The building itself was secure and the staff were very polite and helpful. The location was ideal for exploring downtown Memphis!
The good: the location is great, getting into the apartment was easy, and Sardor was quick in his responses.
The bad: The apartment has the bare minimum, 2 plates, 2 bowls, not a very well stocked kitchen. The towells were mismatched and old, and the shampoo/conditioner was left over/previously used. Power would randomly go out and turn back on (to be fair they are doing construction in the building) and the ac/heater was extremely loud at night. The "gym" is not a gym, it's a room on the 19th floor with a few pieces of exercise equiment that are probably from the 70's, not sure if they work. However if you ask the front desk about the gym and tell them you are in a vacation rental room they will kindly offer you a one day pass to Envision Fitness which is only a 5 minute walk.
Overall, I would not stay here again unless improvements are made. I have stayed with Execustay on Mud Island, and will likely do so in the future.
We were quickly checked in and given keys to our unit and the people helping us in the building office were friendly. I never actually met Sardor but the people working for him were nice and responsive during our brief interaction. The unit itself was pretty basic - we noticed a residue on the kitchen island that hadn't been cleaned and there was a stain on the lampshade in the bedroom. Also, there was no place to hang towels in the bathroom. Generally, the unit was as described and appeared the same as in photographs. We had a problem with the bed - it didn't have a mattress pad and the sheets were too small and fell off repeatedly. In the end, we decided to exit the unit and Sardor was kind and understanding throughout the process. The unit could be nice but it just needs a bit more attention to detail.
The description was accurate and provided for a very nice stay in Memphis. I would recommend staying here!
The Exchange Building was easy to get to, and there are plenty of parking options around the area. It was in a great location to walk to food and fun, including Beale Street. The building is neat, but it is old, so if you stay you might anticipate various repairs going on. Earlier reviews mentioned elevator issues, and they were still working on two of the three elevators during our stay.
Check in was relatively smooth - the e-mailed instructions had an outdated contact number for the building manager/Airbnb contact and outdated parking instructions. However, After I reached out to him, Sardor returned my call quickly.
The room is pretty Spartan, and though it was clean, its certainly not spotless. It sort of had the feel of what a guy's first college apartment looks like furniture-wise. The bed was pretty uncomfortable; the mattress was loud to move around on and wasn't plush in the least. There were two pillows (total) and they were super flat, and the bed sheets seemed pretty old (not necessarily in a crusty way - just worn looking).
I think this space is ideal for folks looking for basic accommodations - definitely not a romantic/cozy get away spot.
My stay was fine. The building itself needs some work, but it seems like there are efforts being made to improve the building and my apartment was fine. Simple, very basic, but clean and comfy. There was a lack of furnishings and living supplies (utensils, dishes, bedding, cleaning supplies...etc) but for a couple of days it would have been fine. They were very nice and prompt about dealing with problems. The only thing that ended up deign a pain was that there is very little lighting in this place so there were really no lights in the apartment other than the bathroom light and the lights in the kitchen. The bedroom and living room areas are very dark after the sun goes down

I was born in Uzbekistan and raised in Memphis. I'm the middle child, with 2 older brothers and 2 younger sisters -- and recently a 4 time uncle! I've been fortunate to travel the world in my early years and learned a lot about the different cultures around the world. I enjoy learning about geopolitical history, architecture, and technological advancements that benefit the myriad societies around the globe. To me, Memphis is an exciting city that competes with the great cities of the world as a worthwhile stop for play and leisure. Allow me to host you in my apartments, located in the historic Exchange Building in downtown Memphis.
