Apple Inn Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Apple Inn is very quaint and in a great location on Tram Line #2. The museum district is only 2 stops away or about a 20 minute walk. The rooms are small, but price is reasonable. This was the second time I had stayed there. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful,

The hotel is about a 10 minute bike ride from the Van Gogh museum. The room was small, but the bathroom is very nice. Parking was cheap and only a 12 minute walk from the hotel. Try and get a room on the first floor, because the stairs are RIDICULOUS !!

Apple Hotel is located in a great part of Amsterdam near Vondel Park. However, the staff was almost surly and every time we asked for assistance they indicated there would be an additional charge. (One staff member rolled her eyes at a request.) For example they charged us 5 Euros to store our bags when we arrived too early for check-in. Then they wanted .75 Euros to call a restaurant to change a booking. These little things left me feeling that they did not value us as customers but only saw us only as a source of more revenues.

We stayed for just one night at this hotel because it was offered at a reasonable rate and was in a convenient location for us. We were able to walk to the hotel from the Park & Ride which was convenient. The hotel was clean and orderly. The staff seemed nice. We weren't there for very long and did not eat breakfast so I don't know how the breakfast is. The room was clean and the beds were okay - but nothing special. All in all, it's a great place for a cheaper cost than many of the other Amsterdam locations. It was clean and seemed safe. But don't expect luxury. :-)

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who has a small accommodations budget. The price was good and I went into it knowing that I wasn't staying at a 5 star hotel so my expectations were not dashed when I arrived. The staff was helpful although they do not help you with your luggage. Beware of the stairs, they are steep and somewhat curved so hauling 50 lbs of luggage up and down was a challenge. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. If you want a quiet stay I reccomend somewhere else as there were many young people up and down the stairs throughout the night but overall it was a pleasant experience. It's within a block of the tram so it made going to the city center easy. All in all it was a pleasant stay.

This hotel was a nice get away from the craziness of Amsterdam and yet is still just a short tram ride away from city center. The hotel definitely shows its age, but overall it was a nice stay. It is located in a quiet neighborhood of Amsterdam and we had a room that opened to the courtyard which was quite nice. Only negative is that you do really have to make it back into the city center for any kind of night life after 10.

about 3 minutes to the Vondel Park about 5 minutes to Concert Gebouw & Van Gogh Museum 19th Dutch style buildings nearby - Good place for refresh during 1 or 2 days

The hotel is clean and friendly but is in a converted old mansion-type house. There is no elevator and our room was on the 2nd floor in European parlance (3rd in American). The first flight wasn't too steep but the second was quite steep, the steps were narrow and the whole staircase was curved. I found it all quite charming but my husband is overweight and out of shape so it was quite an ordeal for him and he was huffing and puffing after getting up there. The continental breakfast is very nice and the rooms are small but adequate. Everything worked as it should and the desk is staffed 24/7. We arrived late in the afternoon and left in the morning to catch our flight to the US so can't comment on the area. We stayed in Amsterdam twice on this trip and just for fun I picked two different hotels. In retrospect this one isn't quite as convenient to the sightseeing as the other but not too far.

The Location was great. Very close to the #2 tram line and beautiful Vondel Park. The hotel was fair, but I highly recommend that the lodger reads and understands the House Rules thoroughly and ask questions in order to avoid nasty surprises. The hotel room also has mold issues that should be addressed. Overall the hotel and the staff were not bad, but not anything to write home about. For a budget hotel, I wouldn't discourage people from staying there.

This was an excellent spot in Amsterdam - in a quiet neighborhood, yet right on the #2 tram line.

When we arrived to check in we were greeted very rudely by the woman working the front desk. In my years of traveling, I have never met a more unfriendly person in the service industry. However besides the the rude woman at the front desk, the hotel is very quite and small. The location is far from the center of town but close to the museum district. I have stayed in Amsterdam three different times, and this was the worst accommodation of them all.

Hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, nice area for walking in the evenings and right on the tram line. Our room was a "typical" European style, in a converted home with three twin beds, compact bathroom, small TV with a variety of channels. Free internet access was a real plus. We were surprised that our room did not include breakfast, as we thought we had booked a room with breakfast - but we were able to add breakfast when we needed it. Mostly quiet room, backing up to a garden/courtyard. Not a fancy place, but more than servicable for our family's needs. We would recommend it and would stay there again ourselves.

Very cute hotel overall. Our room wasn't very big, nor the bathroom, but it was cozy with great high ceilings and a big window. We were in the back, so it was nice and quiet, though I wish some late-night folk had not been smoking right below our window. The continental breakfast was included and was quite nice - breads, sliced meat and cheese, oj, tea, coffee, cereal and yogurt. I loved the location - very pretty neighborhood and easy to reach via the tram (as there was no shuttle from the airport; we had to take a train and tram - but cheaper than a taxi!) I liked the look of the hotel, but the stairs were *very* steep (the hotel is in a couple old converted houses), and there was no hotel. I wish I had known about that. It was quite a pain trying to haul three suitcases up very steep steps. Be forewarned, the walls were rather thin too, and we had some noisy neighbors coming in late and making quite a racket. The bed was very comfortable, the coverlet very soft, and I did sleep well, so I'm glad for that. Overall, I liked it and would go back though I'd ask for a ground-level floor this time!

I was writing a final paper for a law course before starting my travels so wanted to find something somewhat quiet with Internet access. First off, Orbitz didn't send or the hotel did not have my reservation so they kept hassling me about it for 2 days instead of sorting it out with Orbitz even after I gave them the file number. The guy was somewhat friendly just for the fact that he gave me a room even though he couldn't find my reservation but did make me give him my credit card (still have been monitoring that as I wouldn't be suprised if they charged, even after I paif Orbitz. The main manager lady is totally rude and shouldn't even be in the service Industry...ESPECIALLY in the Netherlands who pride themselves with the friendliest people in Europe. The hotel is very old and has very narrow, steep and winding stairways...to which I had to carry my luggage up 3 flights...no lift. The Internet connection is horrendous...barely worked the whole time I was there. which was unfortunate b/c I needed it for research for my paper. I checked as soon as I could and am now cozy in a great place finishing my paper.

I asked them to surprise me and they did! After talking with the friendly front desk staff, I found out that the wireless internet went down and would be down for my entire stay. I asked them to surprise me with a replacement solution. The staff found a creative workaround to the an IT issue that gave me 24 hours access to the internet. nicely done!
