Apollo Hotel Amsterdam4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed here this weekend, the hotel room was clean and comfortable. On our first night a fire alarm sounded at about 11pm and then a person spoke on a tannoy to tell us to remain in our room. Most of the hotel ground floor was under construction- only the restaurant was open, lobby seating areas and a bar area were closed for renovation. There was a nice Japanese koi pond outside but it had lots of rubbish in it. Apparently the hotel offers free transfers from and to the airport- however we did not know this prior to arrival- and did not find out until we asked about taxis, and the free transfers on a Sunday start at 10:30 which was after our flight. We also found out half way through our stay that they can also provide discount museum tickets and loan you phone chargers- however we found this out too late also, there was very little information whatsoever about the hotel and what it provided. We are in the restaurant; the harbour club, I have reviewed this separately.
- Staffs are friendly and helpful. - Location: if you want to be away from all the tourists crowds, the noises and have a good night of sleep, this could be an option. It is only 2 or 3 tram stops to the city center for various attractions. This is basically a residential area but lots of restaurants and even an outdoor market on the weekend, 10-15min walking. - The bad, this hotel is under constructions, does not have a lounge, just one restaurant/bar. During our stay, lots of noise during daytime, even seeing painters putting décor and wall paper along the hallway of the hotel. Rooms are small and so is the elevator, fit maybe 4 or 5 ppl max w/out any luggage. - Nice view of the canal if you get that view, which we did for both rooms. - It is also near the convention so depending on the time, you might get that crowds too. Other than that, not much else at this hotel. It is nice to sit at the restaurant or bar for dinner or a drink in the evening, relaxing.
Apollo Hotel. Location A1 on 3 canals with a beautiful view. Best price/quality relationship, therefore we did come back again. Rooms and interior renovated. Super restaurant with disc-jockey. Friendly staff. No porter.
The hotel lobby is currently undergoing extensive renovations. The air conditioning in lobby is very weak. Rooms are on the small side. There was hair in bathroom from previous guest. Beds were comfortable enough. They put two twin beds together. Although I had made reservation a few months before visit and requested a crib at that time, I didn't get one the first night despite being assured at check in that I was getting one. Hotel was adequate but probably wouldn't stay here again
Good aspect: clean and quiet room Poor aspect: not so friendly receptionist, under construction during the stay, so quite noisy in the public area, a bit far from public transportation, the lake? view room is very disappointed
Its on the water. Breakfast is among the best I had and you are having breakfast right on the side of a canal. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff is superfriendly. I would visit again.
Stayed here for 10 days on business. Selected it because of how it looked online, and some customer reviews. They are currently doing a major renovation, and things are quite disorganized and rather chaotic. The restaurant apparently has been moved, and it was hard to find. They had my researvation all wrong, I was with my wife but when I checked in they had it a single person. They at first did not believe that I had made the reservation for two people and it was only after I showed them the reservation on my laptop that they grudgingly corrected it. They also had that I had not paid for breakfast but we had and again it was only after I showed them the reservation on my laptop that they corrected it. A number of other similar problems. Overall, a fairly unpleasant experience, particuarly given it is not cheap. We would definitely not stay here again, given how many nice hotels there are in Amsterdam.
The hotel belonged to several different chains over the last couple of years. At the beginning of this year, it has changed to Starwood properties and is classified as “design”hotel. I admit, that I would have expected something different for a “design” hotel. Of course, every hotel has a certain design, but the denomination as well as the branding Starwood uses for “design” makes guests consider this type of hotels is very modern and stylish. The interior of the newly renovated rooms is nice and the rooms are comfortable, especially the beds allow for a good night sleep. However, I would not have necessarily thought of design hotel when seeing the interior. Please don’t be shocked when approaching the hotel. The exterior looks not very accommodating but inside you have very nice areas. You could read already from other reviews that the lobby area is currently undergoing some change, so there is construction going on. I have, however not been disturbed by this in my room. I had a very pleasant harbour view, which I enjoyed very much. The breakfast buffet is nice and the breakfast area is arranged nicely, different from other hotels in a more winter garden style. Obvious from the other reviews, staff has received differing ratings. I was accommodated very nicely and very pleasantly by all staff members who passed my way. I needed to buy flowers for a certain occasion one morning at a fairly early hour and I was helped tremendously by the staff at the reception. I would come back, however, the way to the office was a little longer and therefore more burdensome for me in the morning then I had envisaged. Also, the hotel should be careful not to overdue the price to allow for the right cost-reward ratio.
I've been here from 30.06 to 6.07 and I choose this hotel 'cause of the advertising on internet. The hotel seemed very good from what I've red on line. But once I arrived I found an hotel far from the center (15/20 mins walking to the nearest tram station) under construction (builders and construction equipments between the hall and the restaurant; very noisy works all over; dangerous cables and wood beams trough the customer's walking area, dust, dirty, people painting everywhere) and extremely overpriced. No one told me about the security deposit I had to pay to check in. They give you magnetic keys to open the rooms but this cards stop to work very easily; I had to replace it 3 times 'cause the key was constantly not working leaving me often out of the room. The restaurant's menu is not local, is overpriced and doesn't have any typical item with national or local products, recipes, dishes. As a tourist I expected to eat something typical from Holland and Amsterdam from the menu, but instead I found Sushi, sashimi, Japanese beef tartare etc... Only 3 good points: - the very beautiful location in between some canals that gives you a nice and relaxing view on the waters and greens around you. -the breakfast buffet is rich and tasty. - the rooms and the upstairs corridor are always clean thanks to a very kind housekeeper lady who works really hard.
Apollo Amsterdam Hotel. Currently under construction. Female server never said one word. Zero hospitality. 25 minute wait for service; 15 minute wait for drink; 40 minute wait for 25 Euro burger. Eat elsewhere.
