    Not the Best Beginning, but a Very Good Hotel


    When I learned I was staying at a Radisson SAS at the Schiphol Airport for a several day conference, I wasn't very excited. I was in for a surprise.

    The Radisson SAS at Schiphol (actually about a 10 minute drive from the airport, located in the Business Park Schiphol-Rijk) is much better than the Radisson hotels I've stayed at in the US.

    Frankly, my only complaint is the arrival process with the shuttle van. You arrive at an unmarked door, no help with luggage, and left to fend for yourself and find your way through difficult entry doors, then find the elevators, and then to the lobby which turns out to be one floor up.

    It is not a great welcome, nor indicative of the quality and service of the rest of my stay. Couldn't there at least be a sign or two?

    Other than this rocky start, the Radisson is a very good 4-5 star hotel. Friendly (English speaking) front desk, large rooms, lovely furnishings, spotless, elegant bath with good amenities, free broadband wireless, and it was right across the street from the office building where I would spend the next few days.

    Although breakfast was expensive (23 euros) and not included in my 162 euro rate, you had a choice of a less expensive continental/cold breakfast buffet.

    I'm told the restaurant in the hotel is good, but I opted for sandwiches from room service while I worked in my room at night. However one night, I ate at 't Oude Veerhuys (The Old Ferry House), located just a few kilometers away in Aalsmeer, thanks to the advice of VT member marcel4646. Taxi was 13-15 euros one way. Another nearby choice in Aalsmeer which he recommends is 't Bonte Schort, which is located on the shore of Westeinderplassen.

    The free shuttle to and from the airport is extremely punctual. The driver pulls away the exact second the bus clock stikes the appointed time. In other words, don't be late.

    Directions: 10 minutes shuttle ride from Schiphol by free shuttle bus, in the Business Park Schiphol-Rijk

    A beautiful hotel in an City that never sleeps!


    A very clean, beautiful, friendly hotel. Radisson is known for this around the world. I'm would recommend this to a friend and especially to people who like Cities where you can get a lot of action and meet a lot of people!!! Because this is it, this city never sleeps!!!

    Unique Quality: The roomservice was excellent and the staff was very friendly!!!
    I'd didn't went to the pool and I think neither whil you because there are so many things to see!!!
    The view is nice, but there was a lot of noise, which is normail because it's a very crowded city with a lot of people and lot's of parties!!

    Reliable Luxury - As Expected From A Radisson


    Made up of several 18th century merchant houses, a paper factory and a 19th century vicarage, integrated with modern architecture - the Radisson SAS Hotel is a pleasant place to base yourself when visiting Amsterdam.

    I have to admit, I was expecting to get a more historical feel to this hotel having read about it's past life - but apart from the high ceilings in the guest rooms, there really is no evidence or feel of the former use of the original buildings! The modern glass atrium as you enter really is quite impressive to see though!

    Unique Quality: It's close to everything & just a 10 minute stroll to Central Station, and it has all the amenities you would expect from a 5* hotel.

    We were situated in the building across the road - accessed by an underground link. I was dubious when I was first told this and had a vision of a damp gloomy warren of tunnels to negotiate - but my doubts were unfounded - it was quite the opposite!! Our room was just a short walk to the lifts, reception and main entrance.

    There is a gym in this hotel, but I didn't get to look at it! There is also a Restaurant that has a strong emphasis on asparagus! From what I could see of the menu - it was considerably expensive - and asparagus seem to be used in nearly every meal choice - even the deserts...different!!!

    Directions: In a quiet road with most things close by - easily found on a city map

    5 Star hotel...


    First impressions of this hotel - located behind a quiet alley rather far away from civilisation. Had quite a bit of hassle finding the hotel initially but realised that it was actually very centralised with a serene surrounding that is within walking distance to many tourist attractions (approx 10 min stroll). They have a beautiful fitness center with a shared sauna and tanning room. They serve full buffet breakfast at the cafe every morning till 10am together with the usuals that most hotels provide.

    Their toilets are equiped with the usual shampoos, bath soaps and all but what caught my eyes was the packaging. However, unlike other top notch hotels, this one doesn't provide amenities such as bath robes, bedroom slippers, shavers, etc unless upon request. So don't forget to ask for any of such little comforts to make your stay more enjoyable!

    Unique Quality: The only thing that left me speechless was the fitness room. Complete, practical yet comfortable at the same time.

    Directions: I always recognise the hotel by the coffee shop at the opposite corner of the hotel. You can always seek concierge help as to exactly where the hotel is as well as directions to other places.

    Swanky Dam Square Hotel


    The Raddisson: very swanky, however, not a TRUE Amsterdam experience. It was a huge hotel, in a great location. My room had a window that faced someones office window. Had to shut the blinds the whole week. HOWEVER, great mini bar... lots of drinking was done in my room, and not over priced. I was traveling alone at the time.

    It's location rocks. Right accross the cobble stone street is a deli and two "brown cafes".

    Unique Quality: The unique selling point of this deluxe hotel is the varied styles of bedrooms ranging from Scandinavian to Maritime to old Dutch. The hotel features Royal Club rooms which are business rooms only. The rooms are all in very good condition, as are the accompanying marble bathrooms.

    The public areas include a brasserie which serves traditional Dutch specialities as well as deli-style sandwiches. There is also an excellent a la carte restaurant.
    The building has a modern exterior whereas the interior hosts a variety of styles, ranging from the 18th century to the style of the Far East.
    The lobby is fairly spacious with an atrium linking the roof of the modern building with the bar which used to be an 18th century vicarage. The lobby is beautifully decorated with candelabras, dark wood and leather furniture.
    This is a lovely, centrally located hotel suitable for both groups and individuals. Please note that because of the narrow canal streets, it is necessary for the coach to drop guests off around the corner from the hotel. 12/02jg

    Unique Quality: Very nice 5 star hotel with great location, but very expensive. Generally we are budget tourists, but I work for the Radisson's parent company and we were able to get an affordable employee rate!
