Hotel the Exchange in Amsterdam opened its doors in December 2011 and asked 8 students and alumni of Amsterdam Fashion Academy to design the rooms. From Malu Gehner who designed the room pictured above till Sofie Sleumer who made it possible to actually sleep underneath someone’s skirt. The good thing about a hotel with so many (61) different rooms is that you can visit again, and again, and again and will never be bored.
Another cool thing about Hotel the Exchange is that designer-duo Ina-Matt was responsible for the interior design of Hotel the Exchange. They helped the fashion students, but also designed the restaurant (Stock) and the shop (OPTIONS!). You should really buy their ‘don’t let the bedbugs bite’ pillow (for sale at OPTIONS!). If you are wondering who the owners are: Otto Nan and Suzanne Oxenaar who also initiated Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy and Llove Hotel in Tokyo (a temporarily project a few years ago).
Together with Hotel the Exchange we’re running a competition. One of the readers here on Petite Passport is gonna stay in one of their beautiful rooms. Imagine stepping inside one of the rooms pictured and being in your own private fashion room. If you step outside you will be in the center of Amsterdam and can start exploring the city immediately.
To win this amazing stay at Hotel the Exchange in Amsterdam for 2 persons including breakfast, you’ll have to:
- Like the Hotel the Exchange Facebook page here.
