We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. I booked it as was one of very few good hotels in Amsterdam that had smoking rooms. On arrival check-in was very quick and efficient. The guy on reception noticed when looking at my passport, that I would be staying there on my birthday. The room , overlooking Amstel river, was very big, with huge, very comfortable bed and lots of wardrobe space. (No coffee making facilities, but coffee delivered to room promptly, with lovely petit fours included at weekend) Wireless internet was available at reasonable rate. The bathroom , all done in marble, with lovely Bvulgari toiletries, had separate toilet and bidet area, shower and bath. We didnt eat in restaurant but the room service food was excellent and the staff were more than happy to accomodate our requests. Breakfast was delivered to the room on time, and as with all the staff we were addressed by our names at all times.
There was a lovely terrrace overlooking the river, but unfortunately this was closed due to inclement weather during our stay.
We cant comment on the swimming pool or fitness area as we did not use, but was great for a city central hotel to offer this facility.
Hotel de L'Europe is close to trams stops and within walking distance of both Dam square and Rembrandtplein. The Red Light District is only 15 min stroll away along the canal. We have never been to Amsterdam before but, we felt safe anywhere, anytime we went out.
I really must commend the staff at this hotel. We hired a car and could not figure out the GPS system. The doorman, whose name I regret I did not learn, could not have been more helpful. He took time to show us and set our destination. Alexander, on reception also helped us with addresses. I have never stayed anywhere were the staff were so helpful and doing because they wanted to help, not just because it was their job.
On my birthday, we returned to the room to find a gift left on bed for me. Nice touch! I really couldnt recommend this hotel highly enough. It may be pricey, but you get more than you pay for and this is rare.
