This was a Fabulous Hotel at which to stay on our first visit to the De L'Europe, we would normally stay at the Pulitzer, but it is closed due to renovations, we were pleased it was as it turned out in the end.

I loved my stay De L'Europe! The staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and the bathroom floors heated. My only small issue was the creepy painting of the little girl whose eyes always seemed to constantly follow me around. Nevertheless, I respect that it was art! This was my first stay, and the front desk were... More

Everything here was fantastic. I would say something about the price but the value was incredible considering service, ambiance, convenience, safety, courtesy, were all well above average. Everyone from the breakfast chef to the bartender to the door man to every desk person went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant experience. I recommend a canal... More

Stunning views from the outdoor seating area along the canal, very comfortable. We had the oysters possibly the nicest I ever tasted. also the rosé was perfect. The staff also so friendly. Can not wait to go back to Amsterdam to visit here again.

Sunny friday afternoon on a lovely terrace at the waterside in the heart of Amsterdam: what more would you want? Friendly, efficient service, excellent food. The menu was not as enticing as we remembered it from last time. Rather traditional choices.

We stayed here one night while on a business trip. The hotel was quaint and offered beautiful views of the canal. One inconvenience was there restaurant doesn't open until 7:00am, and room service is also very limited until 7am. This makes it difficult for business travelers that need to depart early for meetings.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I am sorry that you experienced the opening hour of the restaurant for breakfast as inconvenient. For the early departures before 7am we do offer a room service menu including a Continental breakfast and if so desired we can also offer a breakfast box as take away. Hopefully we may welcome...

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
