“The right place to stay in Amsterdam....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The Radisson Blu was an excellent choice for our recent visit to Amsterdam. The hotel provided a "Stay 4 nights for 3" deal but by any measure the value exceeded most other hotels of the higher standard caliber in Amsterdam. It is in a very central and quiet location, the whole experience was very comfortable and relaxed. Stayed in the very cozy loft suite which used to be the attic of an actual home around which the hotel was built. The room and the hotel provided a great sanctuary after a long day of walking around. The real highlight however was the very quaint lobby bar which we enjoyed each evening. Also part of the original house, this bar was beautiful and was one of the most relaxing bars we have ever encountered. All the staff were very friendly. Will stay here again.

Travelling for the first time with our son to Amsterdam we chose the Mezzanine Suite for our stay because it looked cool and had a PS3 for our games-mad 8 year old. The room surpassed all expectations - loads of space, exceptionally clean, light and airy. The free mini-bar (replenished daily) and extensive breakfast were welcome additions to an already ace experience. The hotels service and location were just brilliant. We will definitely return.

Great location: the heart of old city Amsterdam, but peaceful and quite area.
Spacious room, very reasonable price. Powerful air-conditioner.
The only complaint: the breakfast is not included in the room price and pretty expensive: 26.5 Eu.

We stayed at this hotel for three days and found the location to be excellent for sightseeing, the staff were very good and public areas also good, however, the room was a great disappointment.
It was very gloomy as the walls were painted in dark browns and greys. The curtains were torn at the edges. The bed, which was in the middle of the room had very cheap looking dark wood effect surrounds and only had a bedside table on one side which was not very convenient. There was plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe but only three small shelves which for us was not enough. The bathroom was clean with plenty of towels and soaps etc but again very tired. Breakfast was expensive, although there was quite a varied choice, the "hot" selection was poor, mainly because it was only lukewarm at best and the scrambled eggs were virtually tasteless. All in all not the best hotel we have stayed at!

I only stayed for 2 nights in between stops in Stockholm and Las Palmas so I didn't want to pay a lot for a hotel but I did want to be central to downtown Amsterdam. The Radisson Blu was a great choice.

I wasn't really in the hotel a lot as I wanted to see as much as I could in Amsterdam during my short time there but it definitely met my needs.

The service was very friendly and helpful. They gave me directions and advice on how to get places quicker.

The location was very central; close to the train station, red light district, and shopping areas.

The sleep was good. I didn't hear any noise outside despite how close the hotel is to the red light district.

Overall good experience.

After a 24hr travel day the Radisson Blu was a sight for sore eyes. The staff recognized how tired we were and got us checked in as fast as they could. The room was nice and the bed was very just right. The best thing about the hotel are the fine people that make it run. The staff was awesome and all spoke english,very accommodating and the bar tenders sure know how to make a drink! Would go back just because of the staff.

Recently my wife and I stayed at the property as Gold Carlson Club members on a points stay. The property is well positioned to walk to many of the tourist areas of Amersterdam and certainly meets tourist requirements. The room was an upgrade, but I would still consider small and with a view of a building 10 meters away. Everything was very clean, modern, and with amenities of a 4 star property. We did pay for the morning buffet with was fairly priced, but lacking options. We would stay again.
