Radisson Hotel Group has opened Radisson Hotel & Suites Amsterdam South in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam.

The new hotel is the company’s first serviced apartment property and eighth operating hotel in Amsterdam.

It features 227 suites within eight suite types ranging in size from 21m2 to 106m2 . All of them feature a fully equipped kitchen, individual climate control, free high-speed internet access, TV, and a walk-in rain shower.

Some of the suites comprise designer bathtubs and private infrared sauna.

The new hotel also includes a 24/7 Grab & Go market, a fitness centre, underground parking, bike rental, and a restaurant, Keuken & Bar.

It features three modern meeting rooms equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment.

Radisson Hotel & Suites Amsterdam South offers convenient transport links to the Zuidas central business district, city centre and Schiphol Airport, noted the hotel group.

It is situated near Amstelpark and Amsterdam Forest, which is claimed to be one of the biggest urban parks in Europe.

Under a leased agreement signed with ECHO partners, hotel management company Cycas Hospitality will operate the Radisson Hotel & Suites Amsterdam South.

Cycas Hospitality chief operating officer Wayne Androliakos said: “We are delighted to have opened our first Radisson-branded hotel in Cycas’s hometown of Amsterdam, and are confident that our extended-stay expertise will make Radisson’s first all-suite property in Western Europe a popular option for those visiting the city.

“The events of the last year have really highlighted the benefits aparthotels can offer travellers. By combining classic hotel services with the flexibility of home in one great property, we’re well-placed to cater for the current demand from essential travellers and, looking ahead, for the growing demand from longer-staying guests.”
