“Good base if you don't want to stay in city centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

A really good hotel if you want to have a base near the city. You can easily get to the city or anywhere else using the trains. There is a free shuttle bus to the airport where you can catch a train.
The hotel is modern,clean and well-maintained with pleasant helpful staff.
I got an excellent rate for this hotel for not much more than the cost of two breakfasts (25 euro each) and the breakfasts were included. Excellent, freshly cooked scrambled eggs not the usual hard, cloggy ones in most hotels these days plus smoked salmon. You make your own fresh orange juice using a machine. Definitely one of the best breakfasts in a hotel.

A nice hotel for business purposes and easy to acces and I will return whenever I am in this area.. The breakfast is excellent and above the average with freshly made scrambled eggs ( no ready made catering stuff ) and freshly squeezed orange juice. But EUR 25 is over charging to my opinion.
However there is room for improvement: More plugs for PC, iPad and telephones - possibility to print boarding passes in the business center, without having to pay for log-in.
When the hotel is full the lift capacity isn't sufficient.

Room Tip: As the liftcapacity is insufficient when the hotel is fully booked, I always ask for a room at the l...

After a rather awkward check-in by a trainee, the room and service were fine - we were a little disappointed to find that the buffet restaurant (Talavera) was closed at weekends and the Lighthouse was the only remaining place to eat - and quite expensive too. That said, we did dine here and the food exceeded expectations. Would recommend the hotel and this eatery!

Thank you for choosing us on your stay in Amsterdam. We are sorry that you couldn't dine in the Talavera but as you already know The Lighthouse is a perfect restaurant to dine as well. We are glad it exceeded your expectations. We look forward to welcome you on your next stay.

I have stayed here many times and recommend it for all visitors to Amsterdam. it is a quality, well managed hotel with a gym and sauna, good breakfast, excellent service, shuttle bus and very nice rooms. To get to the centre you take the shuttle bus and the train but when you get back you have peace and quiet. The hotel is reasonably priced and quite luxurious. You will not be disappointed despite the distance to Amsterdam and the nearby airport.

My understanding was that the hotel sitiated at the airport should be ready to accomodate not only those, who arrive in the morning, but also those who arrive at night, if they have a properly completed booking confirmation. When we arrived after 23:00, we were said at the reception that in spite of a confirmation of a twin room, there were no more free twin rooms in the hotel. All of them were already given to those who arrived ealier. First-come, first-served? We had to make a big stink, until we were upgraded to a superior room, which was indeed a twin bed room. Although we won the battle, the fun was spoiled.

My husband and I like to at raddisson hotels, we find most are clean with great staff. We found the same to be true here. Nice spacious room, nice clean bathroom. The staff was helpful in bringing us firmer pillows, the ones on the bed when you check in are TOO soft. And helped us with a UK to Europe adapter. Breakfast was good, not the largest spread, but not the smallest. They offered cereal, pancakes, fruits, meats, cheeses, eggs, breads, doughnuts, juices, coffee and tea. The location next to the airport is nice, but it's pretty far from the city center, and we were told a can would cost £50 or more. So the desk clerk suggested we take the shuttle bus back to the airport and get in the train there to get to the city center. Tickets for there and back were about €8. But, the shuttle was NEVER on time!!!! When we arrived we had to wait for an hour!! I believe the have 1 bus and it not only picks up Raddisson guest but also park inn. We always waited on the bus because we asked a cab river what it would cost to get us from the airport to the hotel and he told us about €25. Which is outrageous, it's not even a 10 minute drive. So, while this is a good hotel, it might be worth it to stay at the one closer to the city center.

The major advantage of this hotel is the proximity to Schiphol Airport and the people. From the front desk clerks to the breakfast host/waiter, the people were outstanding and went out of their way to be helpful. BUT, at checking in, I was offered a 25 euro breakfast, or a 35 euro breakfast + upgraded room, plus "free" drink in the bar (which I was dumb enough to go for). None of that was worth it. I'm not sure what was so special about the upgraded room, but the pillows were awful, the air conditioner very noisy and the special "espresso machine" worthless. The "free" drink in the bar was a house beer or wine or a soda (whoopee!). The breakfast was much more limited than many hotels offering complimentary continental breakfasts. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious, but not really worth the cost. The main attribute was outstanding people!
