“Like a home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2010

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.

I had the chance to be the first one to sleep in their new suits.
A double decker room, al in white, on the roof of the bldg, with windows on the 4 sides and even over the bed for a sky view.
It has 2 salons, a theatrical music system, a play station 3, 2 TVs and a balcony.
It was an over expected great experience.
The hotel's location is the best you can get, 30 seconds from the centre and the red light district.

Good comfortable hotel with pleasant quiet rooms enabling a good nights sleep. Free in room wifi.

Good location for business and pleasure.

Pricey but you get what you pay for and for me it's the only decent business hotel I've found so far in Amsterdam. Breakfast is pleasant enough, minibar is a rip off.

Fantastic location on a quiet street adjacent to the university but a stones throw from all the action. I stayed in a room facing the street on the 4th floor which was spacious (said Deluxe on the outside plaque) and quiet with excellent beds. The TV could use an upgrade. Wireless internet was spotty but wireline was good - both included in my room price. I did not have the hotel breakfast although I was within 5 mins of excellent bakeries and cafes - which the front desk recommended. They were also very helpful in suggesting places to visit, eat at, shop, nightlife etc. Within walking distance trams (5-10 mins), main station (10-15 mins), major attractions, shopping etc. So you can get your work done in a quiet location when needed and get to the party areas/shopping in less than 15-20 mins either walking or by public transport.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam is a very well located business class hotel in central Amsterdam. The accommodation is comfortable and of a high standard, with the night life of the city minutes away. The hotel features a central courtyard design, with the room I stayed in having a street view. The street is very quiet and I had an extremely peaceful stay.

The business facilities are very good with the catering of a very high standard.

My only gripe is that, as this hotel caters for business travellers, the prices are rather high and the minibar (including water) extortionate. Save your Euros and take a walk to a shop!

All in all, a good hotel in Amsterdam. Recommended. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.....

I stayed at the Radisson Blue for three nights in september in a mixed vusiness/lesire trip. the location is great on a quiet street, really close to everything. Hotel is brand new and quiet, up to Radisson standard. Rooms were nice and well furnished.

The big negative side is that the hotel is very expensive but many hotels in Amsterdam are. The breakfast was good though. a little complian on the fact that is seems noise travel easily from room to room as we did hear well our the neighbor above us ... however not to an unbearable point.

Staff was ok, just remeber to be careful ordering a taxi in advance or asking for it well in advance as they do take longuer than 5 min to reach the hotel in the morning and may make you miss your train or plane.
