Stayed here for a Show at RAI. Very convenient, about a 10 minute walk. Also walkable to museum area and a few blocks to tram 5 and the center city. Front desk is helpful, friendly, and polite. Restaurant is a little indifferent; like they were trained by a different company.
I screwed up on check-in and can never figure out which countries count the first floor as zero. Thought my key was bad. Front desk personnel hand carried my luggage back up and made sure all was OK. Refused a tip! (Dorothy, we're not in Kansas anymore). Everyone speaks English as if it were their first language, oddly with seemingly more of an American than British dialect.
Decor scheme is "what can we do with a bad-looking 1950s (on the outside) 40+ year old hotel and make it hip, fashionable, and euro-traditional at the same time. So you get a little of it all from a decor scheme. To be fair, its really all fine and some is very nice inside.
Breakfast is very steep at 22.50E for a typical spread, nothing special. Internet is 7.50 per day, not too bad and worked fine.
Beautiful view overlooking the canals. Upgraded to a small suite; I sense the regular rooms are a bit tight, but this was fine. Of the RAI area hotels, this was a value when I booked. I think I did very well.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Apollo Hotel Amsterdam is both classy and modern. Our hotel boasts a central location, in the beautiful Oud-Zuid region of Amsterdam. Stay the night or meet at a typical Dutch location, where five of Amsterdam's canals converge. Are you planning to attend a conference at the World Trade Centre Amsterdam or at the RAI? These can both easily be reached, as they are at a distance of just 1,000 metres from the hotel. During a weekend stay in the beautiful Oud-Zuid region, you will be staying at a walking distance from Amsterdam hot spots, such as De Pijp, the Albert Cuypmarkt, or you can relax in the Beatrixpark. ... more less
