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

Comfort and fashion are two words that are very rarely mentioned in the same sentence, yet in these rooms, comfort and fashion are married in the most wonderful manner.
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.

The 5-star rooms, which all look different, offer 'haute adventure.' Here you sleep in extraordinary concepts. The rooms feature either a balcony or terrace with views on the Beurs van Berlage or the Westertoren, which makes a truly Amsterdam experience.

My stay here was great. Very conveniently located. The decor of my room was a bit bizarre, but so is Amsterdam! Overall good value, though that will depend on the rate you get.

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.

Too Cool for its Own Good...

I wrote a long, comprehensive review, but this site kept rejecting it. Wouldn't recommend. Rooms very small, staff had attitude, no amenities except wifi, location too touristy. Best for under 35s. Bottom line: do your research before you book!

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.
