“unforgettable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

We have been staying at many great hotels in the world. De L’ Europe is no doubt on the top of our list. The hotel is breathtaking. You will note that everybody could not help to take the photos as they pass by the hotel. However, the picture could not record all its beauty. You have to be there to truly enjoy it. The inside is as great as outside. The staff and concierge could not be more helpful. They try their best to accommodate their guests constantly. The windows are big in the suite with great view of street and river. The bed and bedding are very comfortable. The bath rooms are roomy and classic. You can feel the room and amenities are arranged in a very guest friendly fashion. Breakfast includes all essential items, which are well appointed. We ate dinner at hotel every day. The foods are excellent; all dining rooms have great canal views. We did not feel the need to go out to eat actually.
Only one problem for me. My own pillows at home are not good enough anymore after sleeping on the pillows at De L’Europe for 5 nights. I contacted the hotel with slim of hope and requested about the pillows. I did not expect the guest relationship manager, Ms. JacquelineGratz, go to extent to reach their supplier. This really shows how they really care their guests. I am really impressed.

This is the hotel you will remember for the rest of your life.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in June. The hotel is centrally located but easy to reach by car. It has valet parking. The Hotel is generally what you would expect for a 5 Star hotel with comfortable well furnished rooms. It has good soundproofing so is quiet at night. The most impressive aspect is that every member of staff was helpful, cheerful and very oriented to service. The breakfast in the brasserie in the morning is great with a full buffet but you can eat quickly if you need to. Wake up calls on time with a cup of tea.

Room Tip: Boom online direct with hotel and just before you leave the site after booking they offer you the ab...

We stayed in this hotel for two days. The first impression was very good: sumptuous foyer, friendly staff at reception. We even got a double upgrade for no particular reason which was a nice surprise!
The room was impressive: spacious (separate bedroom and living room), with lots of gadgets and plenty of wardrobes, the bathroom had a TV which I first took for mirror, separate bath tub and a shower, as well as built in speakers...
In the evening there was once live grand piano music in the main lobby/bar area - perfect atmosphere to unwind with a drink!
The only reason I'm not rating this hotel as excellent is the breakfast experience - limited choice of food, a bit cramped together tables, no attention from the staff during breakfast at all - our table had dirty dishes and glasses piled up on top of each other by end of our breakfast and nobody from the staff showed any sign of interest if everything was all right or not, clearing used dishes etc. I couldn't face it on the second morning of our stay so we went to a nearby Sofitel hotel which provided excellent breakfast experience for a similar price.

Room Tip: Room 248 was excellent

A superb hotel with an outstanding location. A short walk to most sights and a mile walk to the museums. Situated right on the Amstel river with dining near the water options. Very attentive and cordial staff. Good restaurants on site. The only draw back is if you are family there are no rooms with twin beds. They can make up the beds as twins but they are still one bed which makes it awkward if you are rooming with someone you do not want to sleep that close to.

Stayed 2 nights as a last minute arrangement by Tauck River Cruises due to the rising water levels on the Rhine. I believe there were around 50 of us that had to be put up at this hotel and therefore we all were given different categories of rooms. Ours was room 520 which was a good size and had a view of a canal partially obscured by the roof of the floor below us. It was located behind the elevator which concerned us but we heard absolutely nothing.

The room had plenty of closet space with only 3 hangers...I'm sure we could have asked for more. Beautiful marble bathroom with separate shower and tub, makeup mirror, in floor heating, and high quality toiletries. The room had large, comfortable bed with beautiful quality linens and supplied a robe and slippers for two. There was a tv, Bose docking station for my iPod with a speaker system which included the bathroom, a writing desk with an iPad charged up and ready for use with the free WiFi.

The hotel is about six blocks from the Red Light District and about a 15 minute walk from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gough museum.

The only blip was the service in the restaurant which was friendly but very disorganized. In fairness to them, almost our entire group did show up within half an hour but we were one of the first to be seated and one of the last to be fed and only after I went and questioned the waitress. When they did bring my meal the meat was almost raw on the inside. I'm sure they would have gladly fixed it had I pointed it out but no one ever came to ask so I ate what I could.

Cannot comment on the value because we didn't pay for the room but the card we filled out for registration said 370 Euros.

Room Tip: Some of the others in our group had room 417 and said it was really, really small.

Stayed for 7 nights in a beautiful appointed room .huge comfortable bed massive pillows and all the other luxuries of life.Two great restaurant choices a Brasserie for lunch and their superb Classic Bordeau restaurant .The best meal we had in Holland. The Hotel is well positioned.Staff all friendly.Only one gripe we asked the concierge to book a table at their restaurant Bordeau over two days he told us they where busy and could not fit us in.I went straight to them myself and got in the next night.
The breakfast was way to expensive at 32 euro per person!
