“My favorite Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Am writing this review a year after staying there. I LOVED this hotel when I was there and having stayed in a few nice hotels subsequently, I felt moved to review this hotel. The room was perfect - not huge but totally comfortable and aesthetically appealing. It was incredibly well thought out and functioned so comfortably. The property itself is very attractive and is very well located. The staff was really helpful and nice.

This is a beautiful hotel in a central location. My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights as part of a European vacation. From the moment we arrived we were pleased with our choice. The hotel looks impressive from the outside and stepping inside were were not disappointed. The decor in the lobby is plush and welcoming and the staff are friendly and attentive but they were also laid back and relaxed. Our room was beautifully appointed with a gorgeous bathroom and lovely toiletries. It had a romantic ambiance. We had breakfast in the dining room overlooking the canal each morning and the staff were helpful and friendly. We also dined in the restaurant one evening for dinner and had a drink and some snacks in the bar. The food was excellent on all occasions and the prices were reasonable. The concierge was extremely helpful. Free wifi plus ipad in the room was included. The gym was in the process of being renovated but there was an attendant on hand to explain what was happening. All in all it was a luxurious experience and good value.

For my birthday on June 5 , I treated myself to a trip to Amsterdam.. This
hotel is by far one of the Best Hotels in Europe, let alone in all of
Amsterdam…. One of the things I love the most is the super friendly staff
–It starts with the doorman and bell staff I don’t know their names but
each one is always friendly and professional..
The Front desk staff remembered me from my last visit and made me feel
especially welcomed back to the hotel. Amanda, Claudia, Ed are always there
to make sure your stay is going well.
Paul, manager in the Breakfast room makes it a great way to start your day...
The concierge team headed by Eef the Chef Concierge and his assistant Roland are amazing.. They know everything you need to know about Amsterdam and are a great resource for
restaurants, shopping and tours. As I said last year, this is the
only hotel I want to stay at in Amsterdam.. Just wish it was in New York
City.

This hotel is ideally situated within walking distance of the flower market and great restaurants of this fabulous city. The hotel staff was gracious and attentive. We were upgraded to a suite with a view of the canals. The only problem was the room lighting which was overly complicated and too dark.

One could try to pick out the minutiae of what is "wrong" or "bad" about this hotel, but really what's he point? It is a 5 star hotel in a very old classical European building with an excellent central canal-side location. It's not cheap, but neither are a lot of other European hotels that don't come close to this. Just stay there. It's worth the $.
If you find the food expensive there's a Macca's about a minute away....

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel de l'Europe while on vacation in Amsterdam, and the hotel was delightful. Our room was spacious, quiet, well-lit, with beautiful bathroom facilities. Most of the de l'Europe is old (there is a newer wing, of which I did not see much), but has been very recently renovated, with an iPad in every room, for use as the guest directory and more. The room was air-conditioned well, and technologically so advanced that, when one would get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, the night lights would come on as soon as one's feet hit the floor. The help was uniformly friendly and polite. The only slight downside to the room was a relative dearth of hanging space in the closet - plenty of shelves, though.

We have been staying at many great hotels in the world. De L’ Europe is no doubt on the top of our list. The hotel is breathtaking. You will note that everybody could not help to take the photos as they pass by the hotel. However, the picture could not record all its beauty. You have to be there to truly enjoy it. The inside is as great as outside. The staff and concierge could not be more helpful. They try their best to accommodate their guests constantly. The windows are big in the suite with great view of street and river. The bed and bedding are very comfortable. The bath rooms are roomy and classic. You can feel the room and amenities are arranged in a very guest friendly fashion. Breakfast includes all essential items, which are well appointed. We ate dinner at hotel every day. The foods are excellent; all dining rooms have great canal views. We did not feel the need to go out to eat actually.
Only one problem for me. My own pillows at home are not good enough anymore after sleeping on the pillows at De L’Europe for 5 nights. I contacted the hotel with slim of hope and requested about the pillows. I did not expect the guest relationship manager, Ms. JacquelineGratz, go to extent to reach their supplier. This really shows how they really care their guests. I am really impressed.

This is the hotel you will remember for the rest of your life.
