From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful, friendly and efficient. I had booked a junior suite but decided to treat us to an upgrade as it was my birthday. I upgraded to a one bedroom suite overlooking the river Amstell which is wonderful but pricey - not sure it's worth the extra 200 euros a night! That said the room had everything you could wish for and, for a city centre hotel, was very spacious with nice high ceilings and picture windows with amazing views.
The hotel itself has arguably the best position in Amsterdam with a great terrace right on the river. We booked dinner on the terrace one night (and this is my only moan!) and were told by the concierge that we would get a really good table as we were were guests in the hotel. We got the worst table by the kitchen entrance, on the inside - not by the river, with people coming past us all evening. I had asked the lady who seated us if the people who had tables on the river were guests at the hotel and she assured me they were. We then got talking to two different tables who had the good seats and found out that they were not guests at the hotel at all! We had four nights there so they should have said that there was a problem that night and we would have picked another night.
A small niggle in what was otherwise a perfect long weekend in the Hotel De L'Europe. I would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to returning.
