I was so lucky to have had the opportunity to go to Amsterdam to film a few episodes of The Bold & The Beautiful. There is so much I want to say about this incredibly beautiful city, but let's start with the hotel.
Hotel De L'Europe is one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at. It is by far the nicest hotel in Amsterdam. The hotel itself is beautiful and really clean (most important for me) but I really feel like the staff and the way we were treated and taken care of made it that much more special. Lisette de Koning made our stay extra special and went above and beyond to make sure every member of our group was taken care of. And there were a lot of us!
The room itself was very big, not just for European standards. It was beautiful. We had a spectacular view of the canals from our room. The bed was RIDICULOUSLY comfortable and that is very important to me as I generally have a really hard time sleeping.
They have turn down service every night which is expected but this isn't just your regular turndown service. They literally re- clean your bathroom (I am a mess with all my products!) and they make sure you have everything you can possibly need. The staff leaves a different quote on your bed every night by a famous figure who has previously stayed there.
The bathrooms are huge and have floor to ceiling marble which also gives you the option to heat the floors. There is a nice size tub along with a built in pillow and every type of amenity you could need.
The room is stacked with a mini bar. My favorite part was the paprika flavored Pringles. I couldn't stop eating them. The food at the hotel was amazing. They make one of the best caesar salads I have ever had. I don't eat red meat but I had fish, chicken, Dutch cheeses, homemade soups and all were delicious. Room service comes very quickly and everyone is just such a delight to deal with.
The hotel bar Freddy's is really fun to lounge in. They also have a cigar bar that is attached in a separate room. The people are all very classy and the drinks are great.
Their spa is one of the best. Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel and spa. They give great mani/pedi's, massages, you name it.
All in all there isn't one negative thing I can say about this place. Should you ever find yourself in Amsterdam, Hotel De L'Europe is the place to stay. Just ask for Lisette and tell her I sent you. She's probably still sleeping after all the running around she was doing for us, but I'm sure she's recovering...
