“Excellent Luxury Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We were upgraded into an extremely large suite in the new part which has been converted from a bank. Very comfortable and good dutch breakfast in our room. The luxury restaurant is closed on Monday night so we had oysters and dover soles in the brasserie. All the staff were exceptionally pleasant.

This hotel is in the heart of Amsterdam. Upon checked in I was upgraded to Junior Suite room. This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in Europe. It is an excellent hotel not only in location, but also in its quality of room and lobby lounge, quality of services and quality of breakfast. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I stayed there 4 nights. One night I visited Board'eau Bar and drink a glass of red wine. When I asked for the bill the bartender said in a very friendly way that he owe it for me. Very impressive. What I like most about this hotel is its bath room. It is very luxury, well and modernly equipped, and its really comfortable. I grade this bath room is the best of every hotel bath room I have ever stayed in more than 70 countries.

Excellent location, fantastic staff and unparalleled service - a first class experience! We spent 3 nights at this beautiful, old-world yet updated property. We were upgraded to a suite upon checking in, our room had a lovely view of the Amstel River and was appointed with all the modern conveniences (iPad, Nespresso coffee machine, free wi-fi, spectacular bathroom). The concierge Amanda was our "go to" person for all advice, reservations and queries. After dinner drinks at Freddy's were great too! We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

This hotel is really beautiful! As soon as you enter you feel in a total different place. The decoration in the lobby is great and very "rich".

I had a junior suite and everything was extremely good!

The amenities I must admit are the best I have ever seen and for the turndown service you don't get a chocolate but a foot and leg cream to relax you!

There is an ipad in the room and you can order room service or any other service via it.

The bathroom was amazing - although you don't spend the most of your time in a bathroom however this one was exceptional! With a TV opposite the bathtub in the glass wall so you could watch a bit of tv while relaxing!

The outside terrace is also an excellent feature and generally you feel good!

My only down would be the breakfast which was not the greatest I ever had however the rest just compensates everything so it doesn't really matter!

The rooms are extremely comfortable and the views very nice (I had a view on the Amstel)

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

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.
