We stayed at the Hotel De L’Europe for two nights after attending a conference on the outskirts of Amsterdam. It was our first visit to the city.
This 5* hotel is very conveniently located on the Amstel river in the heart of Amsterdam, having its own private jetty, and great views of the city.
From arrival to departure we were met by staff who were friendly and highly professional, making us feel welcome and comfortable throughout our stay.
The hotel was very elegantly appointed throughout. We occupied a junior suite which was everything we had hoped for. Having a large impressive balcony overlooking the river and surrounding area, which we would have used much more if it hadn’t rained so much! The room was very comfortable, spacious, very clean and exceptionally well serviced, and had all the comforts and facilities you would expect of a hotel in this class.
We had dinner in the hotel’s brassiere on our first evening and it was a delightful experience. The food was very good, well served and my gluten free diet was well catered for. The views were exceptional of the river and city at night, which made for an excellent dining experience. We also enjoyed a drink in Freddy’s bar where we sampled the hotel's ‘famous’ Bloody Mary cocktail with that secret ingredient! – highly recommended, and again, excellent friendly service.
The hotel has a wonderful spa, swimming pool and gym, and the service and quality was very much in keeping with the rest of the hotel. We enjoyed a spa treatment whilst we were there and can vouch for the professional competence of the staff from the experience we had.
There is only one downside to this hotel and that comes down to cost – it wasn’t a cheap stay, but we knew that from the outset, and the quality of service, ambience and facilities were at the standard you would expect for the price.
It certainly deserves to be classed as a Leading Hotel of the World, and we will definitely stay there again if ever we revisit Amsterdam.
