“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

We arrived on a weekend for a three day stay when there was a soccer game on the Saturday night. Normally Amersterdam is New York City on drugs but this weekend was extra special. The normally pscho bicyclists seem even more intent on mowing down another tourist. So the Rad was a beacon of serenity and civilization.

At first glance, the hotel seems to be four different buildings, one of which has a distinct lean to it. But this is a facade and inside is a very modern and elegant hotel. The construction must have been very complicated to incorporate the old with the new. The bar is actually another building inside the main structure. It was the Rector's residence and now serves as the bar and reception area was his garden.

Superior service is given from the curb to your room with and very good reception. Our room faced the street but there are rooms that face onto the atrium.

Flat screen tv (which we rarely used), very expensive mini-bar (never used), coffee, safe, iron and ironing board and desk. There is more storage in this room than any hotel or cruise ship we have ever been on. An extremely well-lit bathroom has a heated floor but there is a raised lip when you enter the bathroom on which you could stub your toe. The restaurant had one of the better breakfasts we had in Europe. Good staff and although it is mostly self-serve, the coffee and follow-up service is very good.

This has all of the flavours of a boutique hotel rather than a large chain. We appreciated being on a side street away from the zoo on the more popular thoughfares and somewhat removed by the kamakzi bicyclists.

This would be our choice if we ever get back to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Watch your toes on the raised lip entering the bathroom.

This is a very nice hotel in a great location. Very nice rooms, great breakfast. Perfect if you have business in the area. The price is high enough for me to look for other options if I'm paying for it myself.

Well-located in wonderful Old Amsterdam, this first-class hotel offered all the best components- comfortable room and bath, helpful, friendly staff and a location that was unbeatable. You really can walk almost everywhere from here!

On a recent cruise down the Rhine, we spent 3 days in Amsterdam, staying at the Radisson Blu, arrangements courtesy of Viking Cruise Line. All employees were very courteous and helpful in making our stay quite wonderful. They had an excellent on-premises restaurant with great selections for lunch and dinner plus an outstanding and huge breakfast buffet with everything you could think of as a choice for breakfast food. Rooms and service were also quite satisfactory. We would stay here in a heartbeat again.

Room Tip: Rooms were chosen for us by Viking Cruises, so I cannot make a comment on what all is available. O...
