We stayed four nights in a Premium Deluxe room River view. Our beautiful and spacious room had all of the most current features and amenities. The bathroom was huge, with very good lighting, a heated floor, large soaking tub, large separate shower, and a separate toilet room in addition to a toilet in the main bathroom. The bed was firm...

I agree with a previous reviewer regarding the air conditioning. We were very cold initially as the fan was running high. Putting the fan off resulted in the room being hot during the night and we woke up in a sweat. Fan back on, but the person sleeping on the side of the bed in front of the fan got... More

It was a pleasure dealing with the check-in staff. They were very professional and helpful dealing with a walk-in customer. I will definitely be back. The room and amenities were excellent. The cigar bar in the hotel was classic. Breakfast in the morning had both quality and variety.

A beautiful hotel, centrally located, with very pleasant and helpful staff. Luxury in many ways, including price. BUT, two concerns, both having to do with comfort: 1 The bellman proudly told us how the heat/ac controls worked and how we could set a comfortable temperature and fan. At first it was uncomfortably cool. While 55 F outside, the unit was... More

The De L'Europe is a lovely hotel right in the center of everything! However, their bathrooms are very dimly lit and impossible to attempt to apply make-up, even at the highest setting.

When entering the lobby the first impression is that not very much did happen. However there is nothing further from the truth. The hotel been almost completely refurbished without touching its character of tradition and quality.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
