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

4-Star Prestige Room
These rooms not only feature unique design, most of them have a wonderful view of the Damrak, Amsterdam's very own Red Carpet. Watch the world pass by from your hotel window and simply close the curtains to enjoy your own fashionable retreat.

Dining

Stock
Stock is the cafe of Hotel The Exchange. It caters to the paradox of fast living and slow food. The cafe quietly acknowledges the vibrant nightlife of the city with an indulgent all-day breakfast. An a la carte menu has soups, salads, sandwiches and sweets, as well as wine and local beers.

Clean with great location

Close to Dam square, central station and many restaurants. The rooms are a bit small but very clean. A great value.

Good location but hard to find!

We only needed a room for a one night layover and once we found its very hidden entrance, the hotel suited our needs for a clean place to sleep within walking distance to the train station and central sights. Staff was friendly and the room with its toilet-shower-sink combo was clean but very, very small (think dorm room for one but listed as a double). Price was good, however for a central location in Amsterdam.

An absolutely disgusting, terribly overpriced hotel!

The worst experience with hotels. The room is very very small. No chair, no shelves.

Totally awesome place

This is truly an Amsterdam fashion experience! My husband and I slept under a retractable hoop skirt. And all the hallways in the building were uniquely decorated with artistic flourishes. Our room was small but very comfortable. The staff were amazingly helpful with directions and suggestions of where to eat and visit.

Couple of nights of partying

Great location and close to good food and shopping. I would actually recommend this hotel but get a 3 star or better room. If we did, I would have probably rated this hotel better.

Haven for Hipsters

Hotel Exchange is all about form over function. Designed by Fashion and Art students, it's a hipster's paradise. Funky, creative, individual design of each room will attract artists curious to see what can be done to make this townhouse-style building in the middle of tourist-y Dam Rak worth the stay. I stayed in two rooms while there: The spacious (apparently a four-star room), but sparse and cold Rembrandt room the first night (not accessible for those with any issues with stairs) and the Amsterdam room (two-star room) for three nights, which was the size of a postage stamp, barely fitting a full-size bed and chair. If you're young and don't plan to spend a lot of time in your room, it's an OK deal for the price. Probably not the right choice for travelers looking for creature comforts, or any amenities. This place had none. A block away from the Red-Light District and close to trams and Centraal Station. Staff was a bit "too cool for school" for my taste and seemed put out by having to answer questions. Hotel has a cafe attached to it, which was convenient for a quick bite in the morning, but very little to choose from and it closed at 5pm. Overall, I'd classify it as a step up from a hostel with individual rooms, en suite bathrooms and funky design elements.

Neat hotel!

Although a bit hard to find (just a doorway with a sign overhead, amongst many), the Exchange Hotel is worth any effort, especially for the price. Each room is individually and uniquely decorated (we saw our friends` room, also). The rooms are a bit on the smallish side, but are very comfortable. The bathroom is also small but outfitted well. Location can`t be much better: 5 minutes from the train station. We were also only 15 minutes from the river cruise ship dock. All the staff we encountered were friendly.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

There are few different canal cruises available, so don`t just grab the first one you encounter. Depending on weather and time available, you may opt for a cheaper cruise than the deluxe ones.

Amazing hotel (couples)

Been to Amsterdam previously, but this hotel beats any previous hotel I've ever stayed in: • Top central location. • Unique, different, funky and stylish rooms. • Professional, friendly, helpful staff. • Everything on the door step/excellent transport links around the city. • One of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in. To summarise the hotel in a few words, value for money, stylish and a real hidden gem for those looking for comfort, value and something unique this hotel wins, plus it's a major topic to tell friends and family about the students who designed the interior of this hotel well done and I take my hats of to you guys. Manchester visitor.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy a 24 hour tram ticket as you can use on all trams, underground and buses in the city 24/7 real value for money (something like €7.50) and you can get anywhere in the city.

We knew there was a risk..

We liked the concept of this hotel, but our room was quite ugly and for some reason the cleaner left the bed cover on the floor after cleaning, twice. But at least the hotel was something different and the ugly room made us laugh. Location was good and the cafe downstairs was nice.
