Boutique Hotel the Exchange, Amsterdam: 10 Favorite Rooms
Hotel The Exchange is a boutique design hotel in central Amsterdam. The hotel combines fashion and architecture in unique rooms ranging from one to five stars. The rooms of Hotel The Exchange are ‘dressed’ by fashion designer students from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute who gave each of the 61 rooms their own character with custom fabrics and one-of-a-kind decor. Imagine a room that will give you the chance to sleep inside an enormous crinoline skirt or simple rooms that make use of the traditional wooden beams and with a nod to the history of the 17th century architecture.
The Exchange Hotel Amsterdam
The hotel consists of three typical Amsterdam houses sewn (wink wink) together which means all the rooms have different shapes and sizes. That makes Hotel The Exchange one of the first 1- to 5-star hotels in the world with rooms for all budgets in a prime location.
Amsterdam City Centre Hotel
And when I say prime I mean prime! The Exchange is located at Damrak 50 and is just a 5-minute walk from the Central Station. Which is ideal as both the Eurostar and the trains from the airport arrive there. Once you’ve dragged your suitcases through the street you can walk down the street towards Dam Square and from there follow (or jump on) the tram and explore the city centre.
Breakfast at Hotel The Exchange
Breakfast is served daily at Café STOCK, which is located next to the hotel. It’s open to non hotel guests and on the menu you’ll find delicious pancakes, toasties and pastries.
I am a big fan of art meets hotel scene and this is a great example of thinking outside the box. During my stay I stayed in the Bird Room, which means I have another 60 room to try for future trips to Amsterdam. Here is my top 10.

Wow, that’s really cool.
Think I like the Rembrandt room the best.
I started reading your blog and i absolutely love it. i look forward from posts from you
Gaaf gedaan zeg! Vind vooral de ODD en Building a View heel erg mooi!
I love hotels with character that are unique and these rooms are really quirky. I love the one with the wires around the ceiling Lucy
then this one is for you!
O cool!! I never really sleep in Amsterdam since it’s so close to home but I’m kind if curious to try this place out. I love the Rembrandt room but the Marie Antoinette one is kind of funky too.
I love how clean and fresh these spaces are – the last one in particular is so unusual, I love it!
– I follow back on Bloglovin’ –
I would want to stay in the Marie Artoinette room (I also really like the bed!) or the ODD room.
