“Location, Style and Service makes this a great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The Radisson Blue near Nieuwmarket and Town quare is a beautifully charming Hotel with knowledgeable staff who are quite welcoming and helpful. Comfortable rooms overlooking one of the many Canals, the hotel is walking distance to the Hermitage Museum, Town Square, Nieuwmarket Metro and even reasonably walkable to Centraal Train Station. As reviewer Jean writes, the online pictures are not the building you will stay in, unless you pay a serious upgrade fee. Lobby can be updated, but remember, that's not where you sleep! On a down note, Breakfast add on was an absurd 22 Euro. 44 Euro a couple, almost 50% of what we paid for the room. C'mon!!! Get a bite at the patisseries just around the corner.

We grabbed bikes and went everywhere with ease. Enjoy style away from the main hotel areas, making this a romantic setting. Book on line at Trip Advisor or Booking.com to save some Euros. Hotel site a bit pricey. Njoy the Blu, we did

Room Tip: Upper levels good, be sure to ask for a double bed, not two singles.

Radisson Blu Amsterdam is located right in the city center less than 10mn walk from Nieuwmarkt tube station. Rusland street is very quiet as well as kloveniers burgwal.
On the pictures of Tripadvisor, the hotel look very nice but in reality it is very disappointed for a 4 stars. To enter the big old building (entrance at 25th Rusland), you need to get in the 17th Rusland. By the time you enter the hotel (modern buiding), the big hall looks very sterile, like a Novotel...
I had booked a business room which is located in the big building. To get in the building you need to go at -1 floor, cross a very sad long room (which is also a boarding room sometimes), at take the elevetor to reach the levels of the old building.
I tought inside was typical but all corridors are very modern as well as the rooms (floor 4, view on the street). Everything is very clean but no charm at all.
The business room is fine, beds are comfortable (SIMMONS mattresses !!). High roof, good feeling of space inside.
Nobody is carrying the luggage from the reception to the room !!
At the reception, they tell you that NESPRESSO is free in the room but only three capsules are available for the all day (3 capsules for a couple??)
Bathroom is clean also but few products available. Only one soap for all the stay. Only one bathrobe and one pair of slipers when we enter the room.
Toilets are in the bathroom but if you are a bit "large", the space between toilet seat and the walls is very small.
Plastic flowers in the rooms, what a shame for the Netherlands !
On Radisson BLu webside they say that th edaily newspaper is every day in the room but I did not see it...
No room service late in the afternoon, which means that if you drink a coffee after lunch in the bedroom, you do not have any more capsules for the rest of the day and the cups remain dirty until the day after.
Breakfast is ok but not exceptional at all... The room for breakfast is a bit small, and the second level at the back, without any widows looks like a school canteen.
I paid 610 euros for two nights but the hotel do not deserve this high price at all, neither its 33th rank on tripadvisor.
Still employees in Radisson Blu are very nice.
I will not be back in this hotel for sure.

Room Tip: Hotel has 252 rooms and many rooms have windows with view on the inside hall !! ask for rooms on st...

This was a birthday treat with hubby and children. Suite room was very nice with cosy beds and large tv. Mini bar included in price. Bathroom tiny for 4 of us though. Really clean, and posh. Breakfast great with loads of choice and coffee really nice. Service exceptional, staff really nice. It's 10/15 min walk from main station is close to all tourist attractions. Bar prices very very expensive and be aware they put tax on the prices shown in the bar menu. Would visit again when I have more money. I think it was €500 for 4 of us (2 adults 3 childten) with breakfast for 3 nights

Enjoyed a great stay at the hotel for a long weekend with my boyfriend. Price was high in comparison to what you would pay in alot of other European cities (we stayed in Radisson Blue in Stockhalm and Gothenburg in August last year for forty euros less per night) but it was worth it for the location and cleanliness/comfiness. Only complaint is that the TV was quite high up when looking from the bed vut seeing as it was a 40inch tv I shouldnt really complain. Also there was no milk available for the coffee/tea facilities. About a 7 min walk from Dam Square and Red Light. Would definetely stay here again. Cute little gift ahop in the lobby also.

We had a couple of nice days at this Radisson hotel located in the central Amsterdam. We arrived by car from Denmark, and experienced that it is highly expensive to park in Amsterdam, the hotel parking is not more expensive than else there in the center of Amsterdam, but the hotel only have a limited number of parking spots, so one should reserve a parking in advanced, which we did. The hotel itself is as one can expect from a Radisson hotel. It is located with few minutes walking from most of interesting places in downtown Amsterdam. Most of the hotel is in a modern building but it is sourounded by old canal houses. Our room was in two levels the lower level at the door had an entrence and the bathroom, the bed and the rest of the room we a few steps up from the entrence.

Located in the centre of Amsterdam, this hotel is modern, luxurious, friendly and very, very quiet. The rooms were decorated in an interesting and tasteful manner, the staff were unfailingly helpfuI and the breakfast varied. I could not fault it - well done to everybody concerned.

Came over to Amsterdam for the 2012 Amsterdam Marathon and stayed here. Thought the location was excellent making it very easy to get wherever we wanted to go in Amsterdam. Service in the hotel was friendly and attentive - even one of the staff said she recognised me from Dutch television following the Marathon!
