Yes the hotel is under renovation in Spring of 2017. Biggest impact was for ground floor access to meeting rooms and walkway to adjoining restaurant. Huge plus for room size considering you are in Europe and that the A/C worked. Location for tourists is not central city but within walking distance to major art museum and near transportation links.
Stayed here for one night in the Deluxe room and very much enjoyed my stay. Fun and helpful staff, modern and hip yet cozy interior design, and explicitly comfortable king sized bed. I'd also recommend checking out the restaurant if you're into the stylish and nightlife-atmosphere kind of thing.
Upon arrival we were asked if we would like to be the first to sleep in one of their newly renovated rooms to try them out. Well I'm happy that I choose that option because they new rooms are a real experience. We had room 219, it was a bit small but very well equipped and cool design. I love that they have a rain shower with glass sides, much better than those bathtubs with sticky shower curtains. Breakfast was also lovely in the Harbour club, it was 7 AM in the morning and still cold outside but there was a wonderful fireplace we could sit around to have a cozy breakfast overlooking the canals. There is still some renovation going on on one side of the lobby but I think they are almost done but we weren't disturbed by it at all. I would return to this property whenever I visit Amsterdam again because of the ideal location and the new rooms are really great. Special thanks to Sharon for the warm welcome and Koen for showing us around and explaining about the recent renovation.
I recently stayed 4 nights at the Apollo (first night on my own, next three as part of tour group). The hotel is under significant renovation resulting in taped down worksheets instead of carpeting, noise, dust etc. I was not advised of this inconvenience and the high rate did not reflect the inconvenience to guests. My biggest disappointment though was the "free" shuttle from the airport. The hotel supplied me with their shuttle times from Schiphol as I was arriving a day ahead of my group who had transfers arranged by the tour company. I was at the appointed stop and waited about 30 minutes for the shuttle. It arrived and was clearly marked Apollo and Ramada. My luggage was loaded and I got seated only to be rudely told by the driver that I would have to get off as he was only going to the Ramada. I got off and waited and waited in the cold and damp until I finally gave up after about 40 minutes and took a general airport shuttle at the cost of 17 Euros. When I spoke to the manager (Celine) about this she said she would look into it and get back to me which she did not do. I followed up with her and received an email saying that the Apollo would not reimburse me for the shuttle mix up. It was entirely their fault as I was at the right place at the time provided by the hotel and have the emails to show that. I would not recommend this hotel based on their poor customer service.
Stayed here for a short business trip in Amsterdam. Regretted it. The room was spacious and looked nice. The complimentary water in the fridge was a nice touch. Also got a small upgrade as SPG Platinum. But there were some serious problems in the room. The bed smelled like feet. Yuck. Or the whole room has this faint aura of feet. Not sure where the bad smell was coming from. The centralized air conditioning didn't work properly and it was baking in the room all night. The Wifi was awful. It slowed down at night and was unusable in the morning. This was a major fail (along with the feet smell). I expect wifi that works better than my data roaming at a hotel. The door is thin and you can hear everything in the hallway. Despite this, even over my yelling, twice the house keeping came in to wake me up. And it was loud! The whole room looks like its been designed well and is modern, but something about it is off. Maybe just the smell. I think I was expecting something between a Sheraton and a Westin, and I got something at the Four Points level (with better room design). And tbh, the last hotel I stayed at was a Four Points and was a lot nicer than this.
#1. canal front restaurant cafe just makes you warm on the inside. #2. It's under construction, yes, which most times is inconvenient. Not for us, not this time. It was worth it. #3. A Little outside of city centre but a great walk in beautiful weather as the little magical tree confetti falls on you in the month of May. You'll like it. I'm pretty sure.
Friendly staff and good quality rooms. Lovely breakfasts looking out over the canals. Easy walking distance to many attractions including thr Rykes museum Some good restaurants nearby and a market where you can many different things to eat.
We recently stayed here for four nights. The staff at check in were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in an Executive Suite on the fourth floor which had a view of the car park, so not that great. There are renovations underway at the hotel so also views of the construction materials. The room was clean and a decent size for us. It even had a kettle for tea and coffee. We hardly heard anyone else in the hotel, so that was nice. The hotel has WiFi but it seems to drop out a lot, so not reliable. The location was a bit out of the central city. It was very quiet which was nice. The walk to the tram to get into town was easy. I think the 24 hour pass was €7.50 each. I think the walk to town is meant to be 30 minutes, but it took us longer because we kept getting lost. Overall the hotel is nice, but to be honest, the price seems excessive for what we got and I don't think I would stay again.
One of the worst hotel stays ever. Construction everywhere. Despite having rooms with a view available we were put in one overlooking the dumpsters. Restaurant was expensive and wait staff there was rude. Avoid this one.
We stayed for a short break in this lovely hotel nearby the Museum District. Rooms are beautifully appointed with comfy bathrooms and a lovemy view onn the water. The staff is friendly and the concierge suggested some useful tips to enjoy the City!
