De L’Europe, Amsterdam’s iconic hotel is all set to welcome its rich and famous guests once again from June 23, 2011 after an extensive €61 million renovation. This luxury hotel is a great specimen of the classy 19th century architecture but brings in 21st-century amenities into its 111 guest rooms, including 42 palatial suites. The rooms come in seven styles. Their key piece is the six-bedroom signature suite with private wrap-around terrace overlooking the water. Each room has detailed reproductions of Dutch Master painters.
The rooms are quite big with oversized bathroom having gently heated marble or tile floors. The cool part is the motion detection lighting that enables subtly lit footpaths to help you maneuver in the dark. There also is a small office area. The whole time you are in the room, you are refreshed by the hotel’s heavenly L’Eau De L’Europe room fragrance. If you feel like pampering yourself, you can use their skincare line created by parfumeur Blaise Mautin.
To pamper you tummy, you could go to any of De L’Europe’s three restaurants under Executive chef Richard van Oostenbrugge, who is reputed to create scrumptious meals using only the best local ingredients. The hotel also has three lounges and seven private dining rooms for meetings, conferences and the likes. And like all great hotels, this one comes with a great spa too. With its history, its grandeur, endless list of amenities, culinary delights, personalized service, De L’Europe is probably the best hotel money can buy in Amsterdam.
