"The Exchange building echoes its previous role: connecting the people of Amsterdam with the rest of the world"

Igor Buercher, General Manager

W Amsterdam draws inspiration from the history of the two iconic properties, the Exchange building and Bank building, it is housed in, as well as the culture and vibrancy of Amsterdam, with a touch of New York glamour thrown in. 

The Exchange building is a visionary structure made up of interesting lines, integrated spaces and captivating views that echo its previous role of connecting the people of Amsterdam with the rest of the world.

Across both buildings BK architects have worked with local designers to bring the flavour of Amsterdam to life in every room with high ceilings to create a sense of space, hand-woven bedspreads that depict small stories of Dutch culture and curtains imprinted with classic Amsterdam canal houses.

“Selecting a local product, like Marie-Stella-Maris, is an important way to integrate with the DNA of Amsterdam”

W Amsterdam is keen to connect our guests to what Amsterdam has to offer. Selecting a local product is an important way to integrate ourselves with the very DNA of Amsterdam. Therefore Marie-Stella-Maris is excellent, says Buercher. Marie-Stella-Maris natural mineral water is served at the hotel rooms, the minibar, the W Lounge and the Spa.
