“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

A beautiful hotel with impeccable service, attending to your every need. Large American size bathrooms, king size beds and very quiet rooms. Our room didn't have a window, but it was extremely quiet. Breakfast was excellent, as was tea and cocktail service. Hotel arranged for our guide, Peter, who I highly recommend. We hired Peter for two days and we can't say enough about his services. He showed us everything we wanted to see and more.

Stay very often in hotels of the five star category or five star superior. But the service in this hotel was outstanding compared to most of all the other luxury hotels. Very personal, very committed, very care-taking. Felt like home abroad. Rooms are tasteful and well equipped, but the difference came from the people. My no one choice in Amsterdam, had been in intercontinental, Pulitzer and others, de L'Europe is the best in town.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms to the waterfront

From the moment I arrived at the hotel we was treated like a very important guest. Our room was a suite and it was very comfortable with everything we could need. We had a beautiful view of the heart of Amsterdam, the hotel is very well located. The bathroom was well appointed super bath and shower.
We ate breakfast in the Brasserie and had dinner one night, could not fault the food very good.
The one thing that made our stay special were the staff, they were very professional and very capable. I highly recommend this hotel to add some style to your stay in Amsterdam.

Fantastic hotel with good staff and great level of service, my room was a bit dark but it is my sole complaint.

The location is ideal, close to many points of interests and the airport.

Spacious room with Dutch School theme and marvelous bathroom.

We have stayed in several Amsterdam hotels over the years but this hotel is the best of the best. The staff is very accommodating and pleasant and not do enough to make your stay in Amsterdam wonderful. Our room was spacious, well appointed, large bathroom with an enclosed shower and had a great bed with a wonderful view of the Amstel River and all the activity on the river. The hotel is centrally located being very close to the Flower Market and is within walking distant to the Red Light District, the museums and a shopping mall. The hotel set up a canal tour which picked us up at the hotel and was a delight. We have done the regular canal tour but this one was very nice with coffee, tea and snacks being served while seeing Amsterdam. We are sold on this hotel and our visit to Amsterdam will include a stay here.

Location is as good as it gets, a quiet area very near the center of Amsterdam looking out over a canal. I have visited a few hotels in Amsterdam and I recently chose this hotel as the most romantic place to propose to my now Fiancé. The rooms have been recently renovated and the one I stayed in was amazing. The staff are incredibly friendly and very helpful, they were quick to respond to emails and did everything they could to make my stay enjoyable. The staff exceeded themselves in going out of their way to help me organize a romantic candlelit dinner overlooking the canal and even decorated my room with roses.
I cant imagine a better place to stay, however if you do choose to stay somewhere else be sure to visit this hotel for high tea and find out what you're missing!

The location makes for an excellent base to explore museums, shopping etc. On Tram route 4# which goes directly to the Rai Conference Centre.

Surrounding main streets are busy but the hotel offers a calm base to retreat to. We read other reviews about the various room arrangements and pre-booked a canal view room. This was spacious, comfortable and well decorated. In this part of the hotel double glazing and what must be the best insulation anywhere, meant very little street noise and virtually no noise from other rooms or corridors. Probably the quietest hotel I have ever stayed in. Loved the mix of wooden floors and carpet.

Bathroom was excellent. A water circulation system sometimes sounds as if there is a tap running but is designed to keep all water fresh.

As mentioned by others ipads are useful. Wireless was at times a bit variable but generally good. Nespresso with complimentary coffee was a bonus though not so good for making tea. In room dining and room service was prompt and charming.

Desk staff were responsive and helpful, keen to ensure guests get the best Amsterdam has to offer. Concierge assistance was truly outstanding. Take up the offer for tickets to exhibitions, recommendations to restaurants etc. This assistance will streamline your visit.

Hotel offers bikes... we were not brave enough to take on the locals.

Room Tip: Book a canal view if you can. Twin bedding is not available but German twins can be made as two sin...
