“What a pleasure to stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We were booked into De L'Europe for one night, prior to starting a river cruise. What an elegant, refined pleasure! We actually wished we could extend our stay. The staff was courteous and very friendly and informative; the location was perfect, and right near the flower market, the room was large and very continental, with an identified reproduction of a Rembrant painting on the wall. Oh, and the view of the city was just right. I'd love to go back to Amsterdam and stay there once again.

This hotel is well appointed, staff are fantastic, cocktail friendly and atmospheric even when very few people are in; Micheiln star restaurant is amazing and the location is perfect. in good weather sitting on the river side with a cocktail in hand must be magic; the weather was too cold for us in February

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the confluence of the 2 rivers

The much needed refurbishment made this perfectly located property again competitive which was necessary given the new boom of design and boutique hotels in Amsterdam.

Got a great upgrade (with the Leaders Club) to a small suite facing the canal. The rooms are new, but mine was all painted in red which makes it feel dark and somewhat stuffy. Perfect soundproofing guarantees for a relaxed sleep in the very comfortable beds and the bathrooms are all new.

Room service breakfast was outstanding and the staff were all pleasant and welcoming.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal facing room with a (small) balcony

The Hotel De L’Europe was stunning and in a really central location. I was travelling with work and I was lucky enough to be upgraded to a junior suite which had a huge bed, a balcony overlooking the canal and an amazing bathroom. The hotel was meticulous with the details with a speaker system and TV in the bathroom, comfy bathrobes, lovely toiletries and tasty selection of chocolates in the room! We held meetings there in the day and I found the meeting room to be well laid out with natural daylight. Overall, I’d recommend this hotel for meetings and for a bit of luxury on a trip to Amsterdam.

We spent 3 wonderful nights at the end of March,at this beautiful hotel. We simply could not fault it. There were 3 of us, and we were allocated a suite in the new section overlooking the Amstel. It was almost like having 2 separate rooms. The room was spacious without being cavernous, the bathroom a treat with luxurious and abundant amenities and the iPad in the room is a lovely touch. The breakfasts are delicious and generous, and the service from everyone we encountered was attentive without being fawning. The location is the best in Amsterdam, as far I am concerned. I am a travel agent, and until now I have booked hotels nearer to Dam Square, thinking this was the centre of it all. It is not. You can walk with ease from this hotel to almost anywhere of interest. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking the Amstel, although they may be more expensive

The location is great. The staff are all extremely helpful and efficient. The linen and towels are lovely. We had a wonderful suite with balconies overlooking the canal. Only one comment, very limited cupboard space for 2 people. Highly recommended for a great stay in amsterdam

Room Tip: Ask for room with balcony. Get window seat for breakfast
