“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

I booked this hotel without reading any reviews booked it as it was the best value for 5 star on expedia for central amsterdam having come on to trip advisor i see this is voted 7th best in amsterdam and i can see why. Very good staff service the spa is excellent the food is very overpriced but there are hundreds of restaurant in walking distant. Last time i came amsterdam i stayed in another 5 star hotel but spent a fortune on taxis going places this hotel is right in dam square 5 mins walk from all tourists attractions. I will be returning as i do the amsterdam trip every year and will be staying here again

Room Tip: Book on expedia as you will get vip upgrade when booking there.

The De l'Europe is a grand style petit hotel with top service and terrific food. Unfortunately, the "deluxe" room was located in the attic space and made us feel like we were the servants, not the guests.
We are giving the hotel 3 stars primarily for the service and the quality of food being service in their two main dining options.
As for the room, I would have given them less than 1 star if it was possible.

This is a luxurious hotel providing full services including a newly fitted spa. It seemed particularly well suited to longhaul customers who wanted help organising the detail of their visit to Amsterdam. The hotel provides a comprehensive concierge service.

The location is excellent, right on the water and convenient for all the sights. It is particularly well placed for tram services which are easy to use and very efficient. These are an easy and fun way of visiting the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum and the Concergabouw.

The hotel is very expensive our room costing over 350 euros and this was entry level. If you are like us not going to use the spa or the concierge services you could save money by going elsewhere which probably means on eof the attractive smaller hotels on the cnals. There seems a shortage of good quality larger hotels in Amsterdam.

Also the hotel slipped up on some areas where a top notch hotel would not have done. When we arrived there was no one to help us in with our bags despite a high level on staff in this are.We arrived an hour after check in time and our room was not ready. We were told to wait 5 minutes and 10 minutes later i had to go up to enquire again. We were given a room at the top off the building with no view of any sort and a tiny window which was unreachable and provided little light. When I complained they relocated us to a room with a proper window and a side view over the back of the building and we found this second room acceptable. I recall the hotel refers to some rooms without a canal view as over looking a courtyard. I would suggest a better description be over an enclosed atrium with some rooms having no natural light.

Once we were established in the hotel we grew to like it. We found the hotel brasserie to be good and in an excellent situation. Staff were very friendly. But at this price level for us it did not fully ht the button and we have stayed in comparably priced hotels elsewhere.

Room Tip: Check with the hotel what your room spec actually means.

From extra attention at check-in to care from restaurant staff, I appreciated all the care and advice
From the hotel. I also appreciated the privacy to enjoy this beautiful building and rooms when I had time to relax. Rooms are beautiful - mine was a deep blue chinoiserie - and bathrooms lush.

Room Tip: Try for a room with a balcony overlooking the Amstel.

It's so rare these days to find service at this top level. The concierge staff, bell staff, wait staff and reception staff were all perfect. It was the epitome of service. We were offered a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite or a canal view for 200 euros a night. We took the comp. The junior suite was ample in space with plenty of closet and storage space for a one week stay. The bathroom was simply perfectly practical, beautiful blue heated tile walls with a large soaking tub and separate shower along with a double vanity with more than sufficient counter space for all the toiletries that we brought, or for that matter, could have brought. The towels were soft and huge and there were plenty of them. Room provided a comfortable refuge at the end of each day of our sightseeing. I really can't say much more than it was perfect and we can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade as I believe that they will give it freely if it's available

Perfectly ok stay but no more. Friendly staff in the main but lacking finesse in some areas. Decor uninspired. Slightly out of control situation in the Brasserie. We booked a canal side table (and in fact went to the restaurant to confirm earlier in the day) only to find on arrival for the dinner with our friends, that the tables had been booked by others, so not available after all.

Room Tip: Do not have a room in the eves - no views!

Have stayed here a few times, before and after the expansion. Always outstanding service and accommodations. The bathrooms and rooms are large, furnishings very comfortable & high end. Great location, will stay again when next in town.
