We chose this hotel to spend our 25th Wedding Anniversary in and we were not disappointed.
The hotel advised on a pick up service from the airport - A2B. The Mercedes people carrier that picked us up from the airport and delivers us to the door of the hotel was absolutely perfect. The driver was pleasant and very helpful despite having little English ( He knew more English than I knew Dutch, so I can't complain!)
The Concierge was ver polite and made sure that we were well looked after at the check in desk.
Having booked a standard room we were immediately upgraded at no extra cost as rooms were available.
The room itself was spectacular. A fully fitted wardrobe included within its fitting a safe, a nespresso machine, a mini bar and a full range of complimentary goods.
The bathroom was a full marble affair with bath, walk in shower toilet and hand basin. There was an abundance of towels and complimentary toil interviews, which were replenished every day.
The television included a full Bose sound system.
At night when getting out of bed in the dark floor sensors lit up low level lights in the bedroom and also put a small number of lights on in the bathroom.
Given the temperature was around 28 centigrade the air conditioning in the room was good particularly as it was silent running at night.
The room was serviced twice a day, The second being a turn down service and a quick sweep of the room to replenish bottles of water etc.
The hotel offered a choice of pillows and also blankets/ duvets.
Unfortunately we did not use the Spa is it was in the middle of a renovation programme.
The saff were very friendly and unassumingly attentive. The bar staff in Freddy's bar are well worth mentioning as nothing was too much trouble and the cocktails they serve are out of his world.
We ate breakfast in the hotel each morning. They provided a great selection of very good quality hot n cold foods. The Mango smoothies were excellent.
We only ate once in the evening in the hotel as the cost of dining in the hotel is quite high. The food was very good and once again the staff were brilliant. We ate in what I would consider to be the more basic restaurant and one salad, a rib eye steak for two, four beers and two coffees cost 120 euros!
We had a brilliant five nights, the hotel is beautiful and the customer service exceptional.
We will be going back to Amsterdam again and I will not stay anywhere else but the De L'Europe.
