“Very good all round hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Excellent, friendly reception staff who were very helpful. V good room with good facilities and in a good convenient location. Hard to fault this hotel really. Breakfast at 25 euros is expensive but you don't have to eat there as there are lots of breakfast places nearby.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The hotel is in a convenient location for exploring the city, shopping and eating. It is in a quiet area but just a few blocks from the area where you can shop, enjoy restaurants, bars, and if so inclined, coffee shops. The tram is nearby as well. The hotel is clean. I had a standard deluxe room which was quite nice. They offered me an upgrade to business class with breakfast but didn't think it was worth it for 25 euros. My room had a double bed that was partially comfortable-one side more than the other, desk, comfortable chair and nice sized bathroom. The bathroom, like others I encounter in Europe has a step up and I seem to manage to stumble a few times before my brain clicks in and I learn from it. The room also had robes, slippers, small closet space and sufficient electrical outlets. I also appreciate the free internet. The front desk people were friendly and helpful. There were 2 concierges. One was very helpful and the other was curt and not that helpful. There is a small gift shop in the hotel with various necessities and souvenirs. I'd stay there again.

A 4 star hotel with 5 star service. A well run hotel with comfortable rooms and pleasant, well trained staff who are only too pleased to be of assistance. The hotel is located in the old part of town and within easy walking distance of Dam Square. Only two tram stops from Central Station or very reasonable taxi fare to arrive at the hotel. The breakfast is excellent value and well worth including in the stay. My wife and I had a lovely meal in the hotel restaurant where we were also well looked after. Have no hesitation in recommending the Radisson Blu if looking for a first class hotel to stay when in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: The south building has rooms overlooking the canal and well worth requesting.

Bit pricey - nothing spectacular. For the price paid would probably expect slightly more. Not sure what I would expect by way of more but I wasn't overwhelmed. Having said that I wasn't underwhelmed either.
May or may not stay here again.
Quick word for the bar staff - excellent.
As were roomkeeping.

The Raddison Blu hotel in the centre of Amsterdam is not the cheapest hotel but if you are going to Amsterdam for a romantic or special occasion it's well worth the extra money. Within walking distance of the main railway station and the town centre tram line system it is an ideal base to explore from.
The room are comfortable and the service is excellent, breakfast covers all taste and is plentifull setting you up for the day.

We stayed at the Radisson Blu for 5 days in September, 2013. The location is wonderful and our room was large and clean, although it wasn't fancy and could use a refresh. We had a junior suite which included breakfast and the mini-bar. Breakfast was lovely and included a buffet with a large selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, pastries, and juices. They also have oatmeal, omelets, eggs, sausages, and sliced meats. The staff was generally friendly, although the concierge service was poor and we had to really push for assistance on two occasions. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were nice. They offer free Wi-Fi which worked well.

Our room was on the second floor. It faced the street and there was some noise when revelers would go by, but it wasn’t too bad and we enjoyed the view of the street and the light. If you’re a light sleeper, you may want to request a room on an upper floor or a room that doesn’t face the street. With the exception of the concierge service, our stay was comfortable and the location can’t be beat.

This hotel has a great location, walking distance to many things. It's very clean, and the staff is helpful and polite. Our room was a nice size, but the bed was not comfortable at all. I requested a mattress topper, which made it a little better. There are no robes in the room, and the are pretty stingy with coffee, tea, even sugar, although they did leave extra when I managed to catch them and ask. You also only get one bar of soap, although a minor detail... You usually get one for the sink, and one for the shower. The breakfast is adequate, though expensive. Much cheaper to eat outside of the hotel. The bathroom is a nice size, and updated with granite, etc. The blow dryer looked like it was 50 years old, and would take me about an hour to dry my hair, had I used it. A plug is provided for you to bring your own, and I suggest you do.
