My son and I spent 4 nights at the Radisson Blu Amsterdam. The hotel is in a very convenient location and we easily walked to everything. The room was small but functional and was clean. The bathroom was very nice and was mostly very clean (except for grungy tile grout). The gym is well appointed but closes pretty early. The bar is nice and the bartenders friendly.
We ate breakfast each day at the hotel which was pretty good. The fresh fruit was minimal but there was good selection of other typical items and good quality as well. We had wonderful mussels the night we arrived, and had one other dinner there as well which was more out of convenience than anything else. The food was decent, but the service is lacking. Maybe we're just used to more expedient service, but water glasses empty and the inability to get a server's attention for a long time was annoying.
I heard the bartender recommend the hanger steak to someone when I was in the bar, so I ordered it. It was so tough, I kept trying to cut smaller and smaller pieces but it was really not edible. I told the waiter, and his response was simply, "oh, really". no offer of anything else or even an apology. really not acceptable especially at the price point.
Except for the restaurant, no complaints. the hotel staff is also very friendly and eager to help.
