Perched along the Amstel River in prime location, and in walking distance of the sophisticated Museum Quarter, Hotel De L’Europe is synonymous with history. Since its opening in 1896, the property has been favoured by Amsterdam’s elite and the world’s most celebrated names.
Described as a ‘unique entrée into the Amsterdam of yesterday and today’, the stunning building invites you in with the warmest of welcomes. On arrival you are met with deep red carpets, Dutch Fine Art from the renowned Rijksmuseum and rows of dazzling chandeliers; there are tales to be told within these walls.
Whether you are looking to indulge in champagne waterside, or gaze out upon the city from your rooms’ quaint balcony, there is something for every person, and palette, to enjoy. As the only hotel outside of America to serve the world-famous Heineken light on tap, self-serve from your bedroom, the property flirts with the magic of it’s owner; Freddy Heineken. As a nice addition to the F&B offering, the Freddy’s bar sits on the hotel’s corner, luring in passersby and the chic suits of today’s generation. Equipped with upright piano, brass taps and antiquated embellishment, guests can be transported back in time whilst sipping on the best G&T the city has to offer.
For the art aficionados, guests can admire true replicas from Dutch Masters in the rooms and suites, within the historical Rondeel building and the contemporary Dutch Masters Wing and enjoy rich décor and flamboyance throughout. Not only does Hotel De L’Europe boast the best location in town, but a whole host of extraordinary culinary highlights. With award-winning restaurants and bars, the hotel is a common favourite amongst locals and tourists alike; it’s a place for people to come together.
The hotel’s philosophy is to make their guests ‘feel at home in this 19th century treasure while exploring a modern vibrant city’, which, in short, is exactly what it does. The familiarity, personable approach and people are what make Hotel De L’Europe a leader in the Dam’s luxury landscape. Under the expert direction of its General Manager, Tom Krooswijk, it’s easy to see why the guests keep coming back.
