We stayed at the De l Europe at the end of feb 2014 for 2 nights for our wedding anniversary. We upgraded from a standard to a deluxe (cost £100) and on arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite overlooking the Amstel. I had also pre ordered a box of chocolates with a personal note and I was rather disappointed when these were delivered after we had been shown into the room, somehow losing the effect !. We had a curved sitting room (which had very poor lighting at night and an excellent bose sound system which could only pipe music into the bathroom and despite changing the volume on my ipad and on the unit the sound levels remained the same !) a large queen size bed with tv (sound intermittent at times) and a superb marble bathroom (which would plunge you into pitch darkness after a while if you stayed in there too long. The room was also very cold and we had to call reception to ask them to take the room heating off reception control and back to room control. Despite the technical mishaps the room was lovely. On the first night we sampled the cocktail delights of freddys bar which was enjoyable although on a Wednesday night the atmosphere was rather subdued. On our last night we treated ourselves to the 7 course taster menu in the bord'eau and whilst the bill was sufficient to pay for another wedding anniversary weekend it was an incredibly enjoyable experience, from the service, to the recommended wine, to the delight of each course. We also sampled the spa which had all the relevant facilities although the pool was rather small and my wife was disappointed that all available treatments were fully booked but that was our fault for leaving it late. All in all en enjoyable stay but the technical issues in the room knocked our rating from a 5 to a 4.
