“good spot, upgraded rooms, some face canal”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

we stayed there as a pre-cruise, found accomodations to be well within standard, coffee service in lobby 24/7 is a plus for early risers, free wifi, good breakfast, well within walking distance of anything you might care to see. Staff friendly. We even had a dinner meal in teh restaurant which turned out to be surprisingly good

Room Tip: ask for upgraded rooms that have been re-furbished

Central location, friendly staff, clean, great room, excellent breakfast. From the moment we entered the lobby, the staff took great care of us. Beds were good, and they also offer a "pillow service", with a choice of four pillow types to choose from. We ordered a second duvet, and it was delivered to our room within 5 minutes. Our 4-night stay at this hotel now ranks as our nr.1 hotel experience ever! No part of our stay left anything to be desired!

Room Tip: 6th floor has just been renovated january 2013.

Stopped here for 3 nights on a fanstastic Expedia deal which saw us in a Junior Suite with Free mini bar, breakfast, in house movies and wifi. Reception staff were very pleasant, explaining all about the hotel and gave you a tourist map. Our room was over the road/under the road in a 4th Floor suite. Room was large nice and bright and airy and looked like it had just been decorated, very ultra modern. Huge Bed, pillow menu, Large TV with many stations (the free naughty ones didnt work!!!) Cream Sofas, Desk area, bright modern bathroom with large shower. We only had 1 robe and slippers, 1 hand towel but 2 large bath sheets (maybe due to our discount room price!!!) and the bathroom door slides open but didnt slide and stay shut behind you, so not for those who dont wish to show others their ablutions!! Mini bar was stocked with Beer, wine, pop, water, juices and mars bar, pringles etc. Was a lovely pleasant nights sleep though, although our view from our room was another buildings chimney tower!
Breakfast was plentiful. Help yourself to most things, the Chef cooks fresh omelettes, fried eggs and toast for you. Staff again very pleasant.
Situated 8 mins from Dam Square, Red Light District etc, so very aminiable for all both able and not so.
Would/shall definately stop there again.

We enjoyed staying in this hotel very much. The room was of a very high quality (well worth the upgrade) as was the breakfast. The staff were very friendly and delivered a very high standard of customer service. As other reviewers have said, the location of the hotel cannot be beaten. It is so easy to walk to all the museums and galleries and restaurants from the hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here again and would love to visit Amsterdam again.

Gorgeous hotel in perfect location. Once in reception area you feel you are outside again due to the layout which is amazing. Rooms are ideal, with free slippers thrown in! Staff freindly and very helpful in guiding you to the tourist sites. Red light and China Town 5 minutes away. Breakfast is a bit expensive at 25 Euros per person! The only other fault is the strong smell of fish dailly when going to lifts as they are next to kitchen, dining area. Apart from that would definately recommend.

Room Tip: Any room would give you a good view

This was my second stay in Radisson Blu and I found it quite OK.
LOCATION
I think this is the biggest plus of Radisson. At the edge of the Red Light District but far enough from the crowds, on the quiet street. Close to Dam, Central Station - 20 minutes walk to the Rijksmuseum. Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby.
ROOM
I took the business room and it was rather quiet. However the room was rather small - I do not think it could have 25 sq m as advertised. Room clean, bed and pillows really comfortable. Soundproofing was OK (although rooms overlooking street may be noisier). Heating was very poor what caused some unpleasant moments as the wether outside was lower than 0 C.
SERVICE
Smooth checkin and check-out. problem with heating was not solved by the reception desk. I called them 3 times in 2 hours, tralking to different receptionists and was 3 times promised that someone will come and fix the heating immediately. No one has come to fix it. When I left the room to go and see the manager I have asked a cleaning lady that I have met in the corridor whether she may bring an additional heater - and on my request she had done this within 5 minutes. This has solved the problem. However the fact that no one care about you does not make you feel as a welcomed guest.

Overall - location is fine, breakfast is very good, bed comfortable - but there are some things that may make a difference. Quality of the service is clearly one of them and I was not impressed by this quality.
