“Very nice hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

It was a little tricky finding it. I walked from Central Station and followed the instructions the hotel sent me, however, they were incomplete. The checkin was very good and even though I arrived before noon, I was given a room. The nice lady who checked me in was going to assign a room on the 1st floor. I was traveling alone so I asked if I could have a room on a higher floor. She assigned a king bedded room on the 2nd floor which faced the adjacent building. This made the room dark and the lighting wasn't great. I had to go down the elevator and walk to the connecting building which was rather odd. The bar was very nice. I didn't eat at the restaurant. I was only there for one night. I've stayed at many Radisson Blu properties. The location is great once you find it. Very close to restaurants and sites. Central Amsterdam is a great walking city. If I stayed there again, I would request a room facing the street or a view with more light coming in.

Stayed for 3 nights with 2 other couples, was a surprise hubby's birthday. Got upgraded to canal view room. Staff were friendly, couldn't do enough to help you. Room was massive! Breakfast excellent!!

Drinks at the bar £££££££££, we bought our own and sat in our room looking out at the canal.

Breakfast was expensive but we asked if there was any special offers on and got a reduction.

Beds were comfy. We'll stocked mini bar, we didn't take anything out it though!!

Stayed in here with 2 other couples we upgraded to suite for 75 euros per night and would say do no waste your money as room was ok and meant to have free mini bar but have stayed in many places and have not seen a mini bar without spirits. My friends in the other rooms had them in paying bars. Breakfast ok plenty choice but again not great great area to go exploring. Stayed in grand amrath previously and would prefer to pay extra money to go there with there free mini bar

There was no effort to make me feel welcome. When the receptionist noticed that my reservation was on Club Carlson points there was less interest in my stay. There was no flexibility on my check-out time as my room was "pre-booked" (in November?). The check-out was as unfriendly as the check-in. Consistent in that regard. Room was facing road so was quite noisy despite double-glazing windows. But the rest of the hotel was nice with great ambience in foyer.

Room Tip: If you need a quiet room stay away from those that face the road.

Perfect location. Good value for money, and very comfortable rooms. Stayed for three nights, staff were excellent. One day our room was not made up by 4.00pm, so had to wait before we could have an afternoon nap.

The Radisson Blu in Amsterdam is a centrally-located hotel with lovely amenities,comfortable rooms, and great staff. We were booked here for two nights prior to our Rhine River cruise, and aside from the first day's exorbitantly priced breakfast ($25 USD each for a minimal buffet!!), the hotel met our expectations. We can't comment on the price since it was a package, but we did get upgraded to the business class room by chance and loved it!
