De L’Europe Amsterdam

An Amsterdam landmark with rich history

Situated in the heart of the Netherlands’ capital and overlooking the Amstel River, De L’Europe Amsterdam has been a favorite of the city’s elite since first opening its doors in 1896. Here, Old World charm embraces contemporary, luxury design.

Stay in the old 19th-century Rondeel Building, which features state-of-the-art rooms with a classic design. Or opt for a suite in the Dutch Masters Wing, which was added to the hotel in 2011. This wing, named after the famous artists of the Dutch Golden Age of painting, contains 23 modern suites and its own private entrance.

Besides a rich history, this Amsterdam landmark also offers a superb concierge service, a top-notch restaurant and a 4,300-square-foot spa and wellness center with an indoor pool.
