“An upscale hotel in the heart of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

The DE L EUROPE AMSTERDAM at NIEUWE DOELENSTRAAT 2-14 AMSTERDAM, 31-20-5311777 is an excellent, expensive (360 Euros per night) is beautifully, recently renovated rooms in the heart of downtown, and a walk from everywhere. THe staff is professional, friendly, helpful, and as they should be. The sheets and linens were grand. Bord'Eau, one star Michelin restaurant, led by Executive Chef Richard van Oostenbrugge, provided us with a wonderful lunch, of appropriate portion size, and a modest priced chablis, which was excellent. I look forward to returning for dinner. I will return without hesitation to this convenient, and modern OLD Hotel without question.

This was a belated anniversary celebration and it was superb! We were upgraded to a suite, greeted with champagne, and taken care of for our 3 night visit! The staff was excellent, spoke beautiful English, and so helpful. Their recommendations were right on, whether for an Indonesian restaurant, late night bar fare, or where to see windmills. I can only hope every hotel stay I have from now on merely approaches this excellence. And the breakfast was excellent too! Pat and Carol, Charleston, SC

Room Tip: Choose it for a special occasion!

The hotel is right on the canal and has a fantastic old Europe feel. We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite which was absolutely spectacular. One of the best I've stayed in, lounge, dining, study, bedroom and 2 bathrooms. The service and concierge were first class and the morning breakfast included if booked through Amex platinum. Freddy's bar was excellent and great value for an evening cocktail. Hard to go past if looking for something special.

My partner and I stayed in a stunning room looking over the River Amstel, the room was immaculate and spacious, the bathroom was light and tasteful. The staff are very helpful and polite. It is well situated and close to everything a visitor would want when visiting Amsterdam. We had a wonderful holiday in romantic settings, perfect xx

Smooth very smooth - De L'Europe is a hidden jewel amongst in the 'Diagon Alleys' of Amsterdam. The staff were beautiful prepared to meet, attend to and guide the unprepared arriving guest. Rooms are delightfully set out, roomy yet intimate, comfortable while still helpfully practical. Attention to detail is ever-present be it in the food, service or invisible support. This is a hotel for those who wish to quietly absorb and appreciate the many little things that make Amsterdam such a fascinating city. This is a hotel for those who seek quiet sophistication, elegance or simply for very special moments and memories; it delivers all with style.

This beautiful hotel is located in an ideal location near many trams and a short walk from the tourist areas of interest. The nearby trams will also get you to the museum area quickly. From check-in to check-out we had a delightful stay. We had an urgent need for clothing to be pressed and everything was done within an hour as promised! The in-house fine dining restaurant was a special treat, and the concierge helped with pre-trip restaurant reservations and provided us with a list of interesting and diverse activities. The hotel also provided tickets to key museums meaning no long wait on lines to buy tickets. The room we had was large, beautifully decorated in warm red tones and we had an overabundance of bath towels and toiletries. Although the spa and fitness center were closed for renovations, a fitness area was set up and I was amazed that it was empty every time I used it which allowed me to pick the machines I wanted (yay!). The room was technologically up to date - including an in-house iPad and docking stations for our iPhones and iPods. The continental breakfast was good - because I love tongue it was a treat to find this meat offered with other conventional breakfast meats (ham, turkey, etc.). I would definitely stay here again.

Loved this hotel, great location, old world European charm, yummy restaurants, comfortable bed, large modern bathroom, fluffy towels and robes - what's not to like! Also, loved the iPad and chargers in the room. We used the helpful friendly concierge services to book tours and taxis. Would love to stay here again when in Amsterdam.
