“Can't fault it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Absolutely loved this hotel. It looks amazingly luxurious as you walk in, great service from the staff as you check in, and the rooms are a nice size. The beds are large and amazingly comfortable, the most comfortable we had across our Europe trip in fact. My partner found their gym the best he'd encoutered for a hotel gym too. The location is perfect too. Quiet, close to Dam square, walking distance to central station, plenty of restuarants, and close to bike hire spots. I would suggest taking a walk and finding a little restaurant to eat as you can find a great meal for around 14 euro each (im talking steak, fries, salad, drink). If you are into the more daring side of Amsterdam then it's close to the red light district and plenty of coffee shops too. A little tip, if are planning to walk to the hotel from central station with your suitcase it can be a little tough while pulling luggage around, especially since it can rain quite a bit in Amsterdam in October we discovered! Its only a short cab ride though from the hotel to Central station though so I'd suggest this instead. :)

€390 for 2 nights

This hotel is excellent, the staff are lovely, the location is perfect for everything Amsterdam themed putting you in the centre of everything, just make sure you have got yourself a good map for when you have a couple of drinks.

The rooms were well sized and clean, we did not try the food but the bar and setting was lovely.

Also this hotel had the biggest bed I have ever stayed in however the sheet was actually smaller than the bed, which I felt was a little odd.

The only down side was the parking, was around €45 per 24 hours and although I understand parking is expensive in Amsterdam some form of concession for guests would be a nice touch... For those who do brave the streets of Amsterdam by car the best place to park is the P1 parking in front of the main station, its €55 per 24 hours on the day however if you pre book online its only €20 per day.

Located on a quiet street but very close to several tourist spots. Helpful and knowledgeable staff. The restaurant was pricey but has a great buffet breakfast. Room was on the small side, but OK for Europe.

The first time I stayed here (for business) I had an atrium facing room on the 2nd floor. These rooms are dull, noisy and dated in decor. I requested a quiet room for my next visit and was lucky to be upgraded to a room, recently renovated, in the wing across the road from the entrance. These are lovely, quiet and stylish rooms. Wifi is good, toiletries are nice (be wary of taking the body lotion as the lid doesn't close tightly) and bathroom is beautiful although without bath. This hotel's location is good, but like most of Centrum atmosphere can change from block to block, and it's not far from red light district which is just seedy. Staff have always been helpful, although the big news for the concierge desk is that many shops in Nine Sts and posh area near museums are open on Sundays! Breakfast is great!!

Room Tip: Atrium facing rooms on lower floors are noisy.

So many hotels to choose from in Amsterdam and the Radisson did not let us down. Conveniently situated and (providing you are not overloaded with suitcases) in walking distance from central station.
Warm welcome from reception - in fact all the staff were very polite and very helpful; room was clean and spacious with a nice comfortable bed. Only strange thing was that there was only one bathrobe and pair of slippers - had to ask for another set which was duly delivered without any problem.
Nice breakfast but never had dinner so no comment on the restaurant food.
Would go back again.

We picked this hotel because it was close to where our friends were staying, they had chosen a much more expensive place. It was so good that when we returned in a week to complete our vacation we all stayed there. The rooms are good size for a European hotel, quiet and clean. The staff was very helpfull, not just with the hotel info, but also with transfers and other travel related issues. The location is great for walking to most tourist sites in the city.

Note that this is not a quaint spot in a historic building, it is more of a business style hotel. That was fine with us as the rest of the city has enough history and age to meet the expectations of a European traveler. From a service standpoint they would be great for both tourists and business users.

This review might be slightly biased by the fact that they upgraded us to a business class room from the superior room we'd paid for, so I couldn't comment on the rooms in the rest of the hotel. The welcome was fine, the service was good and the room clean and modern. We had two evening meals in the restaurant and the only surprising thing was that more people don't eat there - the food is great. After reading the negative reviews here I can only conclude that some people might have been sampling the many substances available in Amsterdam. To the person who complained about it not being convenient for getting from the station with heavy luggage - take a taxi!
