“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2009

Located in the heart of Amsterdam, the Radisson Blu Hotel offers a unique opportunity to experience a modern metropolis that has not lost its historical ambience. I stayed there for one week for a training program and found it to be a wonderful place.

The hotel is quite close to city's main attractions like the shopping district.I stayed in business class room which was surprisingly warm and nicely decorated.We've had a training program in the hotel itself which was flawlessly organised.

I could not discover the pool and other amenities, but I would say it's a great place to stay in Amsterdam, ofcourse if you are going on a business trip.

Very friendly and efficient staff.
The standard king room was definitely on the small side and the TV was a tiny crt... Decor is standard business hotel-like: no frills.
The breakfast buffet was extremely well-assorted. Mmmmmm! Free Wi-Fi. Not the fastest out there, but it was there (and it was free!).
Location is great for the average tourist. Everything is within walking distance.
Would definitely consider staying there again.

*Beware of the airport shuttle service the hotel offers. After the shuttle arrived almost 30 minutes to late (which is never a pleasant feeling when you are on your way to the airport), the driver delivered the most terrifying drive I have ever experienced. The fact that we did not kill anyone on the way is an absolute miracle. However, the company is not affiliated with the hotel as such, and so does not reflect my overall experience of the Radisson.

I stayed in this hotel during a May 2009 business trip to Amsterdam. I took a train from the airport to the main train station in central Amsterdam. From there it was a 5 minute cab ride to the hotel. For those who haven't visited Amsterdam - it is a very walkable/bike-able city. If your visit will be mostly to the city center, don't even consider renting a car. The traffic and congestion are horrific. Anyway, the Radisson in downtown Amsterdam is in a very nice part of town, an easy walk to scores of restaurants, pubs, museums, the famed 'red light district', and loads of other tourist destinations. The hotel is in good shape with updated looks, nice furnishings, very helpful staff, and rooms with plenty of space. My room package included breakfast which offered an extensive menu. There is also free wifi throughout the hotel. I will happily stay at this hotel again the next time I visit Amsterdam.

Nice hotel with interesting, if a little dated rooms. Location is great for sightseeing, right in the middle of it all without being noisey. Service as always at a Radisson was 5 star - could not be more helpful.
