Hotel The Exchange is a hotel with a special love of fashion. Students of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute dressed the rooms like models on the catwalk. The result: a hotel where architecture meets fashion. Hotel The Exchange has 61 rooms, ranging from 1 to 5 stars. Each room has been designed and dressed by graduates and alumni of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). The rooms are as diverse and inspiring, as the neighborhood the hotel lies in. The romantic at heart can fall asleep in a Marie Antoinette-inspired room where a huge dress drapes over the walls and unto the bed. Or, if you prefer a more minimal look, opt for a room that is based on the old fairy tale of the Emperor's New Clothes. Hotel The Exchange is a concept by Suzanne Oxenaar and Otto Nan, initiators of the Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy. Hotel The Exchange is part of 'The Red Carpet,' an urban-renewal project that is aimed at giving the Damrak a more diverse and fashionable look. The hotel is located in three buildings, of which the oldest dates back to the 17th century. In the same buildings there is restaurant Stock that serves breakfast till late. A 5.5% city tax is to be paid upon check in. Please note that you can not pay with cash in the hotel. This is a non-smoking hotel

Easy to find artistic hotel, modern design

All rooms are designed by some art students, and have different styles..... So, my room did not look like the one on the photo. A really small, really clean room under the roof.... For example, I had a shower which was about 3'x2.5' feet.... Perfect to get a good night sleep.... The staff is good and friendly....

not the most interest place i ever been....

I have to say. We may have not bee the most lucky ones. On the arrival the staff was very nice. They upgraded us to three stars, so we were quite happy to discover what our roon would look like. Unfortunatelly, it wasn't up to our expectations. We got in and the feeling was claustrophobic, we were staying in a box full of boxes. I love art and use it as a game of concepts. But you also have to consider what the use of the art is going to be. Thos represented anything but confort. The shower wasinterated as part of the toilet with not doors or curtains.....so imagine, when having a shower everything would get wet. However, i could live with all that if i could at least rest sleep well. Well, that was not even the case. At 8 in the morning on a saturday neighbours started drilling without stop for the whole morning. We reported it to reception, but nothing they could do. That may have been unfortunate. The only posotive thing was the coffe place at the entrance of the hotel. Very nice to enjoy a good breakfast, specially after a bad night.

Walk a little out of the centre and drinks/food becomes much cheaper,no need to always pay the tourost prices as long as you dont mind a stroll.

Great experience.

Read reviews before booking the reservation so my wife and I knew what to expect. Our room was tiny and there was barely enough room for the 2 twin beds. The bathroom was very European (corner shower without doors or curtain). Staff was friendly. Rooms and hotel were clean. Breakfast was overpriced but good. We both loved this place and it enhanced our Amsterdam experience. If you are used to American hotels and luxury, I would not recommend this place. However, if you would like to experience a unique, authentic European hotel, I recommend it highly. We will stay there again and hope to get a room as unique as the last one.

Central location

The location of this hotel is excellent, a short walk from Centraal Station and within walking distance of the major sites of Amsterdam. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room we had was tiny--the bed barely fit with no room to walk around it, and it was hard for the person at the far end to get out. The bathroom was clean but also tiny and the shower had no curtain so it splashed the whole bathroom..

Excellent and funky...An industrial spa.

The rooms are much like a studio apartment in an updated industrial loft in Chicago or New York...Huge by any standard, the use of fabric to theme each room works really well. This is an industrial spa; you can reallly break out of the gritty city and chill in a very quiet neutral space.. $250 eu. is a lot for the rooms but I gotta say...worth it.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a map and an explanation of the canal "system" before you walk in Amsterdam. I just saved you two hours looking at the tops of 5 story buildings that all look the same but are spelled by guys eating thick guechy peanut butter sandwishes and warm skim milk in disher watter cleaned glasses with lip stick on the rim.
