THE EX­CHANGE, HOL­LAND

Friday - - Travel -

What is it? A ground­break­ing pro­ject headed by the world-fa­mous Am­s­ter­dam Fash­ion In­sti­tute, this quirky, ex­cit­ing ho­tel was styled by eight stu­dents from the school, in co­op­er­a­tion with the Dutch Textile mu­seum. What’s so fab? A dif­fer­ent stu­dent has de­signed the fab­ric and ac­ces­sories for each room, to cre­ate one-of-a-kind de­sign spa­ces at the heart of one of Am­s­ter­dam’s most cut­ting-edge quar­ters. What about rooms? There are 61 rooms inspired by ev­ery­thing from Marie An­toinette, to hand­bags and ce­ram­ics. What else should I know? This hip and friendly ho­tel is along the Dam­rak, one of Am­s­ter­dam’s old­est streets, and now a cul­tural hot­bed of art gal­leries, stu­dios and gourmet restau­rants. How much? Deluxe rooms from Dh943 a night, www.hotelthe­ex­change.com.
