The hotel's bar, Freddy's Bar (named after Freddy Heineken), was voted as the best bar in Amsterdam by the Amsterdam newspaper Het Parool. The wine cellar of the hotel is impressive to say the least. Not less than 8,000 bottles, 800 labels and a top-notch collection including top Bordeaux and Burgundies, but also exclusive bottles from Italy as special magnums of Gaja, are featured in the cellar.
The hotel is beautifully located on the banks of the Amstel River in the historic centre of Amsterdam. The premium location offers beautiful views on the river and the centre of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. The hotel in its current structure dates from the 19th century and was designated a national monument in 2001.
Hotel De L’Europe features 111 beautifully appointed guestrooms, including 42 suites and a six-bedroom Penthouse Suite. The rooms are not the most spacious ones, which is normal in a big city like Amsterdam, but are beautifully designed with an eye for detail.
