“Probably the best stay in Amsterdam”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Part of the LHW group, this hotel does not disappoint. It's very grand lobby and entrance give indication of space and decor. The rooms are quite large, we had a great room overlooking the river on the higher floor so noise was not a problem. Bed is extremely comfortable, bathroom is extremely large with marble fixtures. Check in and our service was perfect, very friendly and welcoming. The only area where service suffered were the bar and restaurant, not very attentive which was disappointing.

Despite the small service issue, I would definitely recommend staying here for the location which is absolutely perfect.

Room Tip: Premium Deluxe River View if you can justify the rate. We are LHW members so breakfast was included...

My husband and I stayed at De L'Europe for three nights. We just wanted to see Amsterdam but , wow, the hotel experience was amazing. From our checking in process it was first class service. It's location is very convenient to anything you want to see and do downtown Amsterdam. We had the bed and breakfast option and even though some have said it is costly, we think it was a good value because food in Amsterdam is not cheap. Each day, after playing tourist, we would wind down at the lobby bar where the fabulous Atuel took care of us remembering what we liked to drink. He even made arrangements for an evening tour of downtown on a pedal powered taxi. What a great experience! Overall it was a fantastic experience. We will stay here again when we come back to Amsterdam.

What a great hotel. From the moment we arrived (very early) the helpful friendly staff showed us to our beautiful room. We were jet lagged as we had just come off a 9 hour flight from Alberta, but did not want to give into a nap right away. After a quick change and a tour around Amsterdam (everything is within walking distance) we were ready to sleep. The room was extremely quiet and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Great bathrooms a wonderful restaurant on the canal. This hotel is a must!

I booked this even though it wasn't highly rated with Trip Advisor. (The Holiday Inn had a higher rating, seriously?). The property is Leading Hotels, which in our travels, rates highly. I'm glad I was here. Expensive? Yes, about $450 a night, but for this I was upgraded to a Junior Suite on the canal. It was beautiful. Had cocktails at the Terrace, which was wonderful, outside, looking at all the boats going past, and had dinner in the Brasserie, very simple soup and salad, which for us in the evenings is a lot of food. The other meals we saw looked very good. All-in-all, L'Europe impressed me, and I would come back.

Room Tip: If you are coming here, don't skimp. You won't regret it.

A fusion of traditional and modern that works quite well, although a little too much red going on for my liking! Booked a standard double which was immaculate but very very compact, beautiful marble bathroom but no bath! Beware they want to charge your card with a €150/day security deposit even when we prepaid the room, we objected and they took €150 cash for the 3 day stay!! Bar prices are high and the service a little slow. Nice terraced area at side of the canal, and lovely smoking lounge area. Great location, but quite alot of gay bars in the immediate vacinity of Rembrant Square. All in all, about as good as it gets in Amsterdam, but it's certainly no George CInq!!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a Jr Suite and it was marvelous having been renovated within the last year or two. Bathroom was huge, even by American standards. Bed comfort was superb. The integrated lighting system, of all things, takes some getting used to and can be frustrating, perhaps the only complaint we had of the room. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The lobby is beautiful and engaging, perfect for afternoon tea or cocktails. Freddy Heineken's bar (attached) is a totally different atmosphere, sort of clubby, and fun as well. Don't miss dining alfresco by the canal. Food is very good and ambiance, on a cool summer night, is truly what vacation brochures try to capture. At this property, it's real. Restaurant service is good for Europe, but not exceptional (and one must remember we travel to Europe because it is different). I was fine with it.

We loved Amsterdam and will book at this fine property again for our next visit.

Room Tip: A view of the canal is certainly preferred

One of the leading hotels of Europe keeping up nicely with its tradition.
Located in the glorious center of towns surrounded by the canals was perfect to stay for a couple of days and discover Amsterdam highlights in all its facets as all museums, restaurants all in a walking.
The room was large and luxuriously decorated in good taste. The bed was very comfortable and surrounded with amenities like I pad tablet, i phone console all interconnected with the room music system !
My wife and I were disappointed by the hotel's terrace restaurant which was embarrassingly skimpy on the serving of pedestrian but expensive wines as well as the food was not to be remembered but by its overpricing. Still the location on the canal is fabulous and may be worth not going to the even higher priced restaurant inside on the premises.
Breakfast buffet or a la carte was great and the atmosphere, again overlloking the canals, was very pleasant.
Overall it is great dutch hospitability and friendliness that shall win you back here... possibly asking for a "view" (in the back),and know to leave my car at one of the town outskirts parking lots to avoid the steep about $60 a day at the hotel.

Room Tip: Room in back with a balcony overlooking the canal is the tip !
