This 19th-century grande dame sits pretty on a bend of the Amstel River. Owned by the Heineken family, the iconic property features interiors that channel Hollywood glamour, with three-tier chandeliers and red carpets. The guestrooms are decorated with vibrant colors and textures and skillfully rendered Dutch Masters paintings based on the originals in the nearby Rijksmuseum. The luxe bathrooms have modern marble and under-floor heating. The salon-like vibe of Bord’Eau, chef Richard Van Oostenbrugge’s two-Michelin-starred restaurant overlooking the river, is a hit with the city’s beau monde, which gathers for his inventive takes on haute dishes, like salmon with mustard ice cream or filet of sole with sea urchin and fennel. Hoofdstad Brasserie is a laid-back alternative, or you can splurge on a traditional afternoon tea at the chandelier-strung Promenade. Sip a signature Bloody Mary at Freddy’s or head outside to the all-weather Het Terras. The revamped Skins Institute – De L’Europe Spa offers saunas, a swimming pool and a fitness center equipped with Technogym machines, along with a host of treatment rooms and customizable beauty treatments.
In the Area
Stroll to bustling Rembrandt Square and get tickets for Pathé Tuschinski, a landmark theater that screens current films in an opulent environment, then explore the multitude of Dutch treasures contained within the famed Rijksmuseum, whose iconic works are reproduced on the walls of the hotel. Refuel with a sandwich at low-key café Pasta Tricolore, not far from another of the city’s famous art hubs, the Van Gogh Museum.
How to Get There
The guy serving on the lounge -Mohammed- is an unrespectful person, he was too weird. I hope the hotel management to spoke with him, so other guests will not receive a bad experience in the lounge. Other things in my stay was wonderful.
I Went there for a friend’s farewell lunch and did not expect their lunch was so good! They source fresh and seasonal ingredients and produces from the continental Europe , then prepare with Morden cooking approach which give people pleasant surprises. The Morden cooking and presentation do not match the traditional (old style) deco of the restaurant but it doesn’t harm the enjoyment... services is good and most of the waiters there are nice. They used to have two-star but jut got one last year... I am not surprised they will get two again soon. Good Choice if you want to please someone or indulge yourself for good food, although it’s a bit pricey
I stayed here over my birthday weekend and the hotel staff went out of their way to make me feel at home and celebrated. They even had a small birthday cake and chocolates brought to my room. The room was airy and nice and even if the hotel is located on a busy street in the center of the city, it was quiet and calm. We ate dinner at the Bord Eau restaurant and had a set menu that was really great and with a surprisingly good price for a Michelin star restaurant. Highly recommended. Also here the staff were really friendly and serviceminded. We finished our meal with the cheese plate and the staff were really knowledgeble about all the different cheeses and had small stories to tell about the origin and flavour. Would defintely go back the next time I have the chance.
I am overall disappointed with the hotel. The location is fabulous but my experience there was disappointing. It is very expensive and the service is lacking for a 5 star hotel. When I got checked into my room, there was a scrap piece of paper inside with items “to do” in the next room over including fixing rust and mold in the shower. It was written on a piece of paper with night manager instructions typed out. The first morning I had the buffet breakfast and the only hot option for 39 euros was a tray of scrambled eggs and bacon that were cold and nearly empty over an hour before closing. For the last two nights in a row there is a door slamming right below my room that shakes the bed - this goes on repeatedly until at least midnight. I brought all of these issues to the attention of the front desk with no action taken. Tonight I got back to my room and there was a letter addressed to me asking me to come to the front desk to discuss my account. I thought it was going to be some sort of compensation or room change due to these issues, but, no, it was to confirm my credit card number that I gave on arrival. I am only halfway through my trip and they want to confirm my card number? Not classy. To boot tonight there is a private party right below my room with at least 100 people and music playing. I have to walk through the party to access my room and now I can’t sleep. All this for $750 USD a night? Don’t stay here. Go somewhere else!
Well located in Amsterdam, beautiful rooms, very professional and courteous staff, a great place to stay. Rooms are nicely decorated, spacious and comfortable. From the location, access to restaurants, museums and all sorts of services are easily accessible. As a 5 star hotel, it's at the higher end of the travel budget, but well worth it!
