“Superb location in the heart of where you want to be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2009

I stayed in this hotel during a May 2009 business trip to Amsterdam. I took a train from the airport to the main train station in central Amsterdam. From there it was a 5 minute cab ride to the hotel. For those who haven't visited Amsterdam - it is a very walkable/bike-able city. If your visit will be mostly to the city center, don't even consider renting a car. The traffic and congestion are horrific. Anyway, the Radisson in downtown Amsterdam is in a very nice part of town, an easy walk to scores of restaurants, pubs, museums, the famed 'red light district', and loads of other tourist destinations. The hotel is in good shape with updated looks, nice furnishings, very helpful staff, and rooms with plenty of space. My room package included breakfast which offered an extensive menu. There is also free wifi throughout the hotel. I will happily stay at this hotel again the next time I visit Amsterdam.

Nice hotel with interesting, if a little dated rooms. Location is great for sightseeing, right in the middle of it all without being noisey. Service as always at a Radisson was 5 star - could not be more helpful.

My partner and i stayed in this hotel for New Year 2008, arrived 30th and departed 5th Jan.

This hotel is fantastic, cannot fault it one bit! We arrived and were upgraded to business class for free, lovely start to the holiday! Rooms are lovely, tea coffee making facilities, bathrobe and slippers, big bath and shower with complimentary soap, bath salts, moisturiser etc. Rooms cleaned every day.

Amsterdam itself is the most amazing city i have ever been to. Beatiful buildings and scenery. We were at an event for New Year so didnt see the party going on in Dam Square but on TV it looked fantastic!

The hotel is on a quiet side street, no outer noise heard at all when i was there and we were facing the road on the outside. A 5-10 min walk to the nearest shop, anywhere in Amsterdam you will walk a fair bit to get to where you want to go. Amstel about 15 min walk. PLEASE visit the Ice Bar in Amstel, you go in to the Hot room and order a drink and buy a ticket for the Ice Bar- while you enjoy ur drink u wait for your hostess to take you to the cold room- only allowed in for half an hour as it is -8 degrees! Amazing experience... well worth 10euro.

All in all a fab time and hotel fantastic!!

We stayed at the Radisson for a birthday weekend in Amsterdam. Like other Radisson's in Europe it's a quality hotel with all the 5 star trimmings - gym, room service etc. The room was slightly dark because it faced inward - but apart from that it was a lovely place to stay in a great location right near the red light district. Solid choice for anyone visiting Amsterdam. Watch out for the spa/sauna places in Amsterdam - lots of nudity! I bought a massage and spa afternoon for us and spent the afternoon trying to avoid naked men! But after the initial shock it was a great relaxing spa.

just back from our stay at Radisson centre - great first impressions: quiet street, by one ofthe oldest canals, close to the centre, evreything is gleaming and polished in the foyer and other communal areas. The bar is a nice touch as it's designed in old style with marine theme - antique chandelliers and ship models! the rest of the hotel could be anywhere desing -wise, but well-kept and spacious.
Couple of complaints: the reception taking 100euro deposit on arrival in case we buy something during our stay, it's not common in other Euro countries (and i've been to a few). Needless to say most of it had to be refunded, again but asking for my card, and this does take a few days. Also the internet use is not free (their computers) - they charge 5euro for just 15 min payable by card! overall a lot of card swiping in this place!))
The other minor complaint is that they don't have a choice of pillows so since we both don't like huge pillows, we didn't have a great night sleep. Normally Radisson chain has more flat ones available. Other than that - good service.
