I’m an experienced Canadian traveller. The Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam @ Rusland 17 is a wonderful hotel. It is located in a perfect location, very central to the downtown core which made getting anywhere a breeze. It was very refreshing to experience the high level of customer service that I received during my entire week stay. Whatever questions or issues I had were attended to promptly whether it was checking in/out, an order for an electrical adapter, reservations for the airport shuttle, messages, maps or just plain directions the friendly staff at the front desk were always eager to assist me.
I stayed in one of the newer rooms and it was really 1st class, modern, gorgeous and everything worked. There was a safe which I always like for my passport and other valuables. See if you can get one of those newer rooms! After such a wonderful first day I felt really comfortable and confident. I appreciated the free wifi. I appreciated the chocolates that were left on my pillow every evening. I felt spoiled. The housekeeping staff were excellent. A very professionally run hotel. If that isn’t enough, I even received a phone call from the hotel on day 1 or day 2 asking me if everything was ok, “very considerate” I thought to myself. I was at the hotel bar on two occasions and I liked the bar and the bar staff. I never dined in the restaurant so I can’t comment on it. There are so many dining options in downtown Amsterdam, and I was continuously out and about doing things that I didn’t have the chance to try out the Radisson restaurant.
Amsterdam is a very unique and charming city and the people there are refreshingly very friendly and liberal. I highly recommend taking a boat tour for a unique perspective of the canals and the architecture and also a visit to the Amsterdam historical museum is great as well which is only a 10 -12 minute walk from the hotel. A visit to the giant upscale department store, the De Bijenkorf, is a must and there is a great restaurant/café’ on the 5th floor. I hope to return to the Netherlands again soon because I enjoyed it so much and if I stay again in Amsterdam I will definitely stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel.
