I stayed for two nights for a recent event at RAI and the hotel was picked by my work. I have to say that I feel it was a good choice and the only thing I cannot comment on is value for money because I do not know the cost.

Check in was quick, efficient and welcoming. My room was well equipped and immaculately clean. On the evening of the first day someone knocked to confirm it had been made up and asked if everything was as it should be. I like this as it shows they are paying attention and doing QA.

Breakfast was included and was of a reasonable quality , although choice of hot items was limited. This is why I gave it a 4 (4.5 would be fairer), although I did have a nice omelette for one of my breakfasts and the coffee was good.

I thought the location was very good - 5 minutes to Rokin metro station which linked to both RAI for the event and Central station for picking up a train back to the airport. The surrounding area was picturesque and atmospheric.

If I went to Amsterdam for a leisure trip I would certainly consider the hotel for its location and standards.

We stayed last weekend for a one-night stay at this wonderful hotel.
Although the current COVID measurements this hotel experience was above and beyond.

First of all the cleanliness and safety measures they have taken to ensure guests and staff safety is well done. Hand sanitizers available everywhere, nicely designed protection screens at the front desk. And although the physical barrier between ourselves and the very friendly front desk agent, he made sure to make us feel at ease. Super friendly explaining the current processes in the hotel and the breakfast delivery for the next morning.

The room was amazing with a view over the canal, super comfy king size bed and great bathroom with rainfall showerhead. The breakfast we picked up in the lobby the next morning was nicely presented on a tray with all individual wrapped items, combined with a fresh cup of coffee, tea and fresh orange juice. Really yummy!

Our check-out agent the next day was also warm, smiling and very friendly. The whole process was done quickly and efficiently.

This hotel has done a great job in ensuring a memorable stay for us although the current limitations in place with the covid measurements. We will be back very soon!

Stayed here for 2 nights end of March 22, location is smack in the middle of the city, most city attractions within 20 minute walk from here, anne frank house, ice bar on other side of town etc. very close to public transport system. Checkin was a breeze and room was comfy, breakfast was buffet style with 4 or 5 order-able items on the breakfast menu, omelette, poached eggs etc. 10/10 for breakfast, nice bar for snacks and drinks in lobby area. All staff we met where very friendly. We had a late flight on day of check out and reception looked after our bags while we enjoyed our final day, We would stay here again,

Just returned from 4 nights at the Radisson blu hotel in the centre
of Amsterdam. This is a good hotel, but I’d advise not staying there
during the Christmas holidays , and especially over new year.

The Hotel charges a very high price at this popular time.

I paid 5800 euro for four nights with 5 people staying in two rooms,
called ‘junior suites’. This gives you a slightly bigger room, and a double
sofa bed. The price includes breakfast.

The room was nice, the staff were nice, the breakfast buffet was ok. But there was
nothing special that the high cost would have justified.

The room I was in overlooked a side street. This can get very noisy.
I’d expect the room to be sound proofed. There was secondary glazing, but it had been removed over one large window. You could hear motorbikes , street arguments etc.and also fireworks going off and making large banging sounds.

I was not aware that in the Netherlands, fireworks can only be used by the ordinary person

on the 3 days leading up to new years day and ending at 2am on new years day.
So at night the streets are full of male youths, staggering around (drunk or drugged up) with large numbers of fireworks, setting them off anywhere.
The very loud bangs carrying on for about 7 hours!!

The noise in my hotel room was intense. Sometimes a few large explosions set off car alarms.

The road outside the hotel also contains 2 cannabis coffee shops.

During the day time, the city is very busy. With a high proportion of male groups. Most of them have trimmed beards.

There are some rooms with a window on to the internal atrium. These are much quieter, but not if there is a noisy party in the bar. (There wasn’t when we stayed there)

Most things to see are within walking distance of the hotel. That can be uo to 30 minutes.

I stayed for two consecutive nights 9-11 March booked on separate bookings for each night. The cost of the first night was €249 with breakfast whilst the second was €298.96 without breakfast. This was for a single room with a single bed.
The hotel is a 15 minute easy walk from the Amsterdam Central station and the location is very central but at the same time very quiet.
The hotel is very clean and I liked the mini shop which is open all the time and where you pay at an automatic terminal.
The only feedback I would give is that the staff at reception should deal with one customer at a time and respect this relationship. Whilst I was being served, other guests went up to the member of the hotel staff dealing with me, asked a question and the member of staff carried on dealing with the other customer. This happened twice with me and once with another customer before me.

This hotel was clean and comfortable. We didn't use the restaurant facilities, but the location was absolutely perfect - we were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go in the city, with the train station just a 12-minute walk, but the metro and tram are also just 350m from the hotel so there are many options. I liked the fact that there were two USB ports beside each bed, and complementary water was available. Just note that we had booked a twin room and when we got there, they had us in a room with only one bed. However, they rectified this immediately, splitting the king bed in our room into two singles. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed 1 night at our hometown Amsterdam in the Radisson Blu city center.
It was a very nice deal, only 90 euro, breakfast included. (deal only for locals)
At checkin at 3pm we were upgraded to a superior room because the basic room was not yet ready. The room looked out at the inside of the hotel which was fine because we didn't go there for the view. The location is very good!
The bed was a little firm for me but we slept very well. The airconditioning made all the difference as outside temperatures were 33 degree Celsius.
The rooms were very good soundproof. I heard guest passing our door but their voices were not too loud.
I checked out the gym, didn't use it. There were free towels and bottles of water. The sauna's were closed because of coronavirus. And in the gym are only 3 persons allowed.
The breakfast was ok to good. No buffet. You were waitered at the table. Could get some fresh coffee, tea and eggs, sausages, bacon, bones. The bread on the table was not fresh. I would stay at the hotel again if the price was right.

Friendly staff and excellent service. Staff could not do enough for you. We had our 15 month old daughter with us who was unsettled but hotel staff were very receptive and got us into a room as soon as possible. The staff are a credit to Radisson hotels. Hotel location was excellent too!

The location, food and cleanliness and the overall the stay was excellent .
We are most likely to stay here again.
The room was nice and large and clean . The most amazing part of the bathroom was the warm floor .
All amenities provided in the room and the service at breakfast was well organised during this covid time. ( wearing mask and maintaining distance mandatory).
Restricting the number of persons using the elevator is a super so we didn't have to mix with other households.

Having VIP membership certainly helped get good service at the Radisson. It's brilliantly located right in the heart of the old city so easy walking to see the main tourist attractions. The reception staff are completely fluent in English, and made check in easy and speedy.

The Junior Suite is excellent, with plenty of space to work, rest, bathe and relax although there's no bath in the suite, just an overhead shower. The rooms have all the necessary amenities, bathrobes, slippers, hairdryers, iron, and ironing board, safe etc. We received a complementary tin of the local Caramel flavour wafers which are delicious.

Housekeeping was very discreet, waiting for me to leave for the business meetings before coming to clean the room. The downstairs restaurant has an excellent menu for both healthy options and fast food varieties. I'd recommend the Salmon salad, or the sea bass with vegetables. Breakfast was included, and it's an excellent buffet style spread from coffee and croissant to full cooked bacon/eggs/sausages. The Herbal teas on offer are excellent.

The only downside to the Radisson (and its not all of them) is they don't accept cash, and every transaction has to be paid for at the point of sale, you can't put the meals/drinks etc on your room to pay at the end? This is crazy - especially if you have to pay card fees per transaction at your bank of origin. We spoke to Roy the Manager about this who was very accommodating and sympathised with our issue. Thank you for your hospitality.
