“Brilliant location & breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Tip for the gorgeous hotel bar (the olde worlde Amsterdam house inside the hotel!): don't order a mixer, it will cost as much as the spirit! No post-mix here. Enjoy one of the most lovely buffet breakfasts in Europe with wonderful friendly staff throughout the hotel (which itself is not glamorous, needing an interior facelift, it's true)

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in room 465 the room was large, very clean had a huge tv with a great selection of channels.Great location within easy walking distance for all attractions. The breakfast buffet was superb and there was plenty of choice. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

Radisson Blu is located almost dead center of everything worth seeing in Amsterdam from the flower market to The Red Light District and all points in between like The Dam.
The rooms are well appointed and pleasant... only thing I can take issue with is some very scratchy linens, Staff is attentive and professional, from bell hop to managers. Good job!

Room Tip: South building was quiet... except for a few late night vehicles o n the street.

If location close to shopping and red light district is important to you, then this is a goid choice. But 250?/night is not cheap and you should not expect any glamour for it: hotel features are dated (lobby, rooms, noise...), receptionists are arrogant and unhelpful, breakfast is a mess . Not Radisson standard according to me . Choose a boutique hotel and you will be better off.

A very clean hotel on a quiet street, 5 minutes from Dam Square, 15 minutes from central station, 3 minutes from red light district. 20 mins in a cab from the airport costing 45 euro. Reception were very helpful on arrival and gave us a city map. Our room was fine, impressed with the huge tv and English TV channels (nice to have when getting ready in the morning). The fitness room and sauna were good, with towels and water provided.
Now the prices...... breakfast was 25 euros each!!! 1 beer and 1 Bacardi and coke in the hotel bar was 20 euros!! City tax (for 4 nights) was 30 euros!!.... These prices were rather steep in my opinion and put a little downer on our stay.

Well priced and pleasant hotel in a terrific location. I encountered two irritating problems that seemed totally inconsistent with the Radisson Blu brand. The first was the Internet. It took more than an hour to log my computer in; even after that ordeal the connectivity remained unreliable throughout my stay. The second problem area is housekeeping. Check in time was 3pm. I arrived at 5pm and my "business class" room still wasn't ready. The next day I left the hotel at 8 am and returned at 4 pm to find the room had not yet been serviced. The hotel isn't a top end luxury facility, but at the prices it charges it can certainly afford to have enough staff on hand to clean guest rooms reasonably promptly.

Room Tip: My experience with the "business class" room suggests it may not be worth the price of the...

The hotel is very central-only 5 min walking from Dam Square, 10 min from Central Station and 5 min from Flower Market, Red light District and other monuments.The breakfast is very good with good variety and the personnel are very kind.Rooms are big enough and the hotel is very clean.I totally recommend it.
