“Room 542”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We stayed at the Radisson in room 542. Lovely spacious quiet, clean room, overlooking a canal.

Be aware that the drinks cabinet is 'automated.' So if you pick an item up and replace it withouth drinking/eating it, the item is charged to your room, so check your bill on departure.

The breakfast was a little pricey at 25 euros per head.
Helpful and riendly staff.

Stayed 2 nights during our second visit to the city. Accepted the upgrade offer and had a newly refurbished room on the 6th floor, with views over the city. This was at extra cost, with a reduced breakfast rate. Room was clean and tidy, as you would expect. Breakfast was expensive in comparison with any local cafe. But there was a large selection and you could eat as much as you wished. Location was on the south east side of the city. A short walk from the Dam and central attractions. We ate in the hotel on one evening. We stayed in the bar area and the food was very good, albeit hotel prices. Staff were very friendly. I think that noise might be an issue, depending on your neighbours. We had no problems at all, but i would carry ear plugs as usual. Would stay again.

Comfortable 2 night stay. Everything was provided for in the room, clean and although not spacious, it was fine. TV channel selection was very good. Staff were excellent - very helpful, nothing too much trouble. The hotel is in a good location 5mins walk from the Red Light District and 15mins walk to Central Station. Only one small negative, the 'hot' food for breakfast on my second morning was cold. Otherwise, a pleasant stay and would be happy to return.

Checked in after a stressful flight with a toddler. Greeted with a smile and a very helpful lady on the front desk. Forgot to ask about the cot - no need to worry as when we opened the door we had a lovely spacious room with the cot already inside.
We stayed in room 401 a Superior room. It was new, clean and very modern. Large bed and big window. Heated bathroom floor added a luxurious touch,
Breakfast was'nt a problem for us, its til 11.30am on a weekend and we went down at 11am. There was plenty of space and the food was constantly being replenished. Good choice and made to order toast / eggs was great. Lots of choice of yoghurts and fruit.
The bar area is very stylish and was different to the ususal bars in hotels. Old fashioned feel in a super modern hotel.

Wouldn't hesitate in returning.

it was not a great hotel as I expected. The room was cold, small and different from pics from internet. Some of stuff were good and polite, some of them were rude and impulsive. Once I wanted a new kettle from the receptionist, he brought a new one and asked for the old one to give him back. I said ok! I go back to room and he suddenly entered the room. The room is my private place. He shouldnt do that, at least he should ask for permisson. This shows that they don't choose their stuff carefully. The possitive things were; they gave a city map, there is a luggage room that you can put your luggage after check-out and free wi-fi. there is 2 coffeshops very close to the hotel.
