The perfect hotel for a short trip to the Netherlands…

My sweeties, today, I want to suggest a really lovely hotel to you all, since Max and I spent last weekend in Holland. Saturday, we started off in Bloemendaal where we spent a lovely day by the sea, and in the evening, we finally took a train to Amsterdam, where we stayed until Monday morning. So, for your next trip to Amsterdam, you must keep one hotel in mind, and only one: the Radisson Blu Hotel Amsterdam*, which we were allowed to try and test last weekend. The flagship of the Radisson Blu hotel group isn’t only located super perfectly in the center of Amsterdam (literally everything, from the main station to the biggest attractions but also to the most perfect secret spots, is in spitting distance to the hotel), but the hotel itself has so much to offer, too!

And that’s why I have created this post for you all today. Perhaps, you’ve already visited the Radisson Blu Amsterdam yourself? If so, what’s your personal opinion on the place? And what do you guys think of Amsterdam in general? Love or loathe? I’m excited to hear your opinions in the comment section!


The Room

Once we’d entered our room, we were smitten right away. A bright, comfy but also clean room awaited us. On a small, white table, we even found a huge bunch of tulips and the cute lightbox you can see below – how sweet! A coffee machine, big shower, super comfy, large bed and floor heating in the bathroom made for a perfect stay in this hotel room. Only the carpet floor wasn’t ideal for me as the synthetic material makes my hair go totally static (and not even my ion hair brush helps in that case). But well, let’s forget about the carpet, everything else was totally perfect and we felt at home immediately in this room and continued to feel this way throughout our stay!

The Breakfast

Breakfast, generally my favourite meal of the day, was utterly perfect at Radisson Blu Amsterdam. I could’ve eaten everything from the buffet table, but my tummy was too full too quickly. Anyway, you could really get anything you wanted: from different pastries, fresh pressed juice and infused water to variations of egg and English breakfast over salmon and yogurt to fresh fruit, granola and vegetables, there was literally EVERYTHING you could ask for (and more!). In the end, I went for my all-time favourite again: croissant with jelly, but Max tried lots more and he was right to do so!

I also wanted to let you know a fun fact: the breakfast took place in the restaurant/brasserie of the hotel and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect place for breakfast. Max and I chose the bar table in front of a large window. In this way, we could start the day looking out on the street and watch all the people passing by – too much fun!

The Restaurant

Basically, I could just tell you to look at the pictures and you’ll know what I want to tell you here. The restaurant was such a lovely place where you could have nice lunch and dinner for both hotel guests and others. In such a romantic atmosphere, you could have nice meetings or a lovely dinner with your loved one – or whatever. It was beautiful!

As an interior fanatic, this was my place to be during our stay. The design was tasteful, the rooms large but still comfy, bright and offered a nice mix between classic elements and modern interior pieces: brown leather chairs, wooden tables, large windows and the most exquisite lamps and bulbs. I truly could have spent all day in the restaurant of the hotel.

The Bar

But then, there was another place that I never wanted to leave again during our stay – the bar. And not only because of the beers or the nice coffee, hehe. The style was almost the complete opposite of the restaurant, but still so very lovely. Located right next to the hotel lobby which was rather modern and bright, this bar was a dark refuge for everyone who wanted to spend some quiet time to themselves or with their besties. Old elements (like, REALLY old) met modern pieces and wow, there there so many elements in this bar I adored: an old fireplace, the model of an old ship, chandeliers, leather armchairs, oil lamps and so much more. Great, that the fusion of old and new works so well at Radisson Blu Amsterdam.

Finally, I want to talk about the personnel of the hotel, as they couldn’t have been sweeter towards us. They were so open, friendly and sweet toward us and made sure that we never missed anything. I really wish it was like this at every hotel and I’m thankful for such sweetness – it makes for an even better and absolutely unforgettable stay! Radisson Blu, we’ll be back in Amsterdam for sure!

    Sehr schöne Eindrücke meine Liebe <3 Ich war noch vor zwei Wochen in Amsterdam, allerdings nur als Tagesausflug vom Meer aus ;) Aber Amsterdam ist ja schließlich immer eine Reise wert. Das Hotel kannte ich noch nicht, aber deine Bilder sprechen für dich! Ihr scheint ein tolles Wochenende gehabt zu haben <3

    Liebe Ricarda …
    leider war ich noch nie in Amsterdam – möchte aber unbedingt mal hin. Das Radisson Blu werde ich mir schon mal merken. :)
    Frühstück ist auch meine liebste Mahlzeit und ich glaube, ich hätte mich am Buffet für frisch gepressten Saft und Pancakes entschieden.
    Ach … jetzt hab ich Lust, direkt loszufahren. Die Sonne scheint auch schon. ;)
    Liebste Grüße.

    In Amsterdam war ich immer noch nicht. Eine Schande. Ich will unbedingt mal dorthin! Das Hotel schaut traumhaft aus!

    Hey, als ich vor langer Zeit in Amsterdam war, waren die Hotels dort auch schon sehr teuer und wir buchten schon damals eher Pensionen oder Motels. Klar, so ein Hotel ist schon was Feines und das Radisson hat ja immer gute Bewertungen.
    Liebe Grüße zum Wochenende!

    Ooh, ich erinnere mich noch an mein Amsterdam Wochenende in einem wirklich furchtbaren Hotel – erst habe ich zwei Mal ein Zimmer bekommen, das schon an jemand anderen verbucht war und dann war alles dreckig, überall waren betrunkene Teenies und direkt vor meinem Fenster eine Shisha Bar. Die Fotos vom Radisson Blu sind wirklich wundervoll :)
