This place is as perfect as it gets. From the second the doorman carried our 6 (50lb) bags into the lobby with a smile i realized we were going to have a great trip. We were only there for 2 nights following our 12 day cruise and our room was spacious and state of the art. The bathroom was exceptional with heated floors and separate stereo and TV built-in. I believe you spend more time in the bathroom on vacation then anywhere else and the decor in the bathroom made you want to just sit there and watch TV. This didn't help with my wife because it took her much longer to get ready since she didn't want to leave. We were with 15 family members and ended up having to wait in the bar for everyone to gather. In the bar (i can't remember the name-i think it was Franks or something like that) we had the best Bloody Mary i had ever had prepared by and extremely social and engaging bartender (Girt-hopefully i spelled his name right). He was very knowledgable and gave us excellent advice on everything we wished to see while in Amsterdam. We walked everywhere and realized later that we actually almost walked around the entire city. We didn't have a river view but my sister did and it was beautiful to sit and watch the boats go by. Obviously i would recommend this hotel to anyone and next time we go to Amsterdam we wouldn't even think twice to look elsewhere.. De L'Europe is the place to go..
i forgot to mention the linens on the bed were incredible. it was so nice to get into bed after a long day.
