This hotel is modern and clean but in an old building like most of Amsterdam. Inside it is nice, just like a typical Marriott but smaller. The breakfast buffet is very good. Small dining room with fresh hot and cold food. Outside, there is a red-painted "coffee house" just opposite which is really a modern day opium den where people smoke marijuana. Why the Dutch chose to legalize drugs is beyond me but a lot of European youth are drawn to it. If I went to Amsterdam again I would make a bee-line for a good Indonesian restaurant.I would avoid the restaurant on top of a shopping center that has a skyline view (unless going just for the view and a coffee). My burger there was raw and it was still raw when a second one was sent to me. I prefer sunshine and beaches nowadays but chilly Amsterdam was OK for a few days after a Viking River cruise from Budapest. I know people there and they took us to a good very old pub. Like much of Europe it has history. We did not get in to Anne Frank's house, The line was too long (and I don't think she was in anyway). The Radisson Blu is very central to the old town and you can do a lot of walking from there.
