Area description
The magnificently renovated Apollo Museum Hotel Amsterdam City Centre is located right where the fashionable P.C. Hooftstraat meets the atmospheric Stadhouderskade. It would be hard to find a more central spot to stay in Amsterdam! The hotel does not have an own parking lot, the nearest places to park are Byzantium and Museumsquare. For users of the public transport, use tram 2 or 5 to stop Hobbemastraat.

great place

The hotel is in a great location, quiet but only 2 minutes walk in to town. The room was a little small but clean and had everything we needed. The staff were fantastic and could not do enough for you. I would stay here again.

Cozy Little Nook

I found this hotel to be very economic. It's not a very large living quarter but it's clean, cozy and convenient to the muesuem district as well Liedseplein. Tram stops are all around and food choices are close by. The hotel breakfast is decent, typical continental. Free WiFi, staff is helpful. Minus the small living space this hotel gets my approval.

Excellent location for museums and galleries

Some initial problems over room booking were resolved quickly. Staff were friendly. The hotel is ideally located for Van Gogh and Rijks galleries and very convenient for travel to other locations in city. Scaffolding externally could have been problem but really no issue over noise just spoiled view over one side of room.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

The cost of taxis is not that expensive and whilst a canal tour is advised if you want to travel quickly I would suggest a taxi to a location and possibly a walk back as the city centre really is not that large.

1st trip to Amsterdam

This was my first trip to Amsterdam and I wasn't really sure where to stay. The hotel was right next to the musuems so that I could walk there. Tram stop close by to get me to the other parts of town. Hotel was clean & the staff friendly. Several good places to eat within walking distance. Would recommend the hotel to any friends heading that way.

Friendly staff, very small room

The customer service was great - the receptionist remembered our name and knew that we were checking out before we said anything on our last day. Perfect location for our stay - within 5 min walking distance to Van Gogh museum, Rijksmuseum, Concertgebouw. We didn't explore much, but there was a high-end shopping district near by as well. We stayed in a classic double room - the bed filled up the room and we barely had any space to spread out our four luggages. The hand soap ran out but not replenished.

Good place

The internet was poor and unusable in my room (and therefore I assume all rooms) and caused me undue stress. It was fine in the lobby but if you need a reliable internet connection in the rooms, don't choose this place. Otherwise everything was great. Really nice atmosphere. Good food but expensive. Nice area.
