“One of the best hotels!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

I booked a standard room for 84 euros per night, but at the hotel I was proposed to have an upgrade to executive, business or suite. We chose executive for 40 euros extra per night including breakfast (which costs 25euros per person). The room number 506 with the view on the street. It was a value deal. Breakfast includes different types of ham, cheese, eggs, cereals, fresh juices and even roast potato etc. To have a breakfast nearby in cafés will cost you around15/20 euros per person. So it's not worth looking for a place to eat if you can do it in the hotel. As for the service - it was excellent. We asked a cleaning guy for a tooth brush which we forgot at home. He didn't speak English and advised to ask the receptionist, we totally forgot to do it, but when we came late night tooth brush and paste was lying in our room. One thing I didn't liked that I was charged extra 200 euros, the money was blocked the moment of arrival and I got it back only at check out in cash. But probably that's how it works. My advice: take a room with the view ( not inside the patio), take a breakfast, book a room upper class like executive or business.

We absolutely loved our time at Radisson Blu Amsterdam. We only stayed three days, but was a great amount if time to experience Amsterdam.

The location is excellent, nice and close to the main attractions, but also has many more local areas when you keep heading out from the hotel. We found some beautiful cafes and quaint streets. It is also nice and quiet, and away from the "action."

Our room was so lovely. We were in a superior room in the main building and it was so well appointed, I never wanted to leave! I sit writing this review from a hotel in Brussels and am still dreaming on that room! bed was very comfy and we also ordered two soft pillows from their pillow menu.

Bathroom was fine, nice enough products and the bath salts was a sweet touch.

Nice televisions too, good size and lots of English channels too!

If you get a good rate don't look anywhere else for a hotel!

Great location - in city center but in quiet street - in Amsterdam it is important, in worst case you can even forget about sleeping at all.
Very nice room - we had business room with view on internal pool, cause we were partly for work, partly for fun. My bf was on conference and I decided to join him and during his conference to work online.
At first, I wanted to find some chilly spot with wi-fi in the city and work there but I couldn't find anything that wasn't coffee shop or fast food...:/ I asked at the reception and they told me that I should stay in the hotel, cause centre of Amsterdam is just like this... And it was very pleasant and efficient, I was sipping coffee and working with good wi-fi in quiet environment.
The last day was really problematic cause we woke up too late and my bf had to run to the conference. I had to ask to do check-out as late as possible, then to leave luggage in the hotel and pay when we will retrieve our luggage with two separate bills. So, it was really messed up and complicated but it was no problem for the reception. One more time, great thank you!

We arrived at 6:30 in the morning on a Wednesday and we were not able to check into our room right away. The staff at the front desk was more than accommodating and let us freshen up in the gym bathroom. The hotel is also centrally located right in the middle of old town but on a quiet street which was nice. Our overall experience was extremely pleasant, the staff and the room were lovely and the buffet breakfast was great!

Tip for the gorgeous hotel bar (the olde worlde Amsterdam house inside the hotel!): don't order a mixer, it will cost as much as the spirit! No post-mix here. Enjoy one of the most lovely buffet breakfasts in Europe with wonderful friendly staff throughout the hotel (which itself is not glamorous, needing an interior facelift, it's true)

Radisson Blu is located almost dead center of everything worth seeing in Amsterdam from the flower market to The Red Light District and all points in between like The Dam.
The rooms are well appointed and pleasant... only thing I can take issue with is some very scratchy linens, Staff is attentive and professional, from bell hop to managers. Good job!

Room Tip: South building was quiet... except for a few late night vehicles o n the street.
