Other than a few minor annoyances we experienced, there is much to recommend about this hotel. We started our European vacation with a stay at De L'Europe. After a long flight overnight, we took a 52 Euro taxi ride to the hotel. Upon arrival, we were disappointed to learn our room would not be ready until 4:00 p.m., although we were upgraded to a larger room. After exploring the city, we returned at 4:00, only to be told the room was not yet ready, and no other rooms were available. While waiting another 30 minutes, we enjoyed the bar, where I had a beer and my wife had a Cosmopolitan, which cost 15 Euro. The second floor room was comfortable, large and nicely decorated. Dinner at the hotel was average. The window view of the city was terrific, but otherwise unexceptional.
Tired from our flight and exploring the city, we were in bed by 9:00 p.m., only to be awoken by an attendant entering our room at 9:20 to turn the bed down. Our fault for not using the do not disturb sign, but 9:20? Perhaps that is early for Amsterdam. During the night, there was some street noise from patrons of the drinking establishment across the street.
The location of the hotel is perfect, as most of the places we wanted to go were within easy walking distance. Despite the delay in accessing our room, the staff was exceptionally polite and helpful in arranging tickets to a museum.
