Apollo Hotel Amsterdam
Ranked #112 of 371 Hotels in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 December 2013

The Wyndham Apollo had everything we wanted for a short break in Amsterdam; a comfy bed, a spacious bedroom, clean bathroom with decent shower and nice toiletries, TV, safe, and even a view over a small marina area, home to the local rowing club.

Check-in was very easy, and wifi access was offered before being requested - worked just fine with my rather ancient iPhone.

Breakfast offered a good choice of all the usual continental treats, from cheese to pastries, and nicely-cooked hot food, so long as you didn't mind your bacon crispy. Nice cut fruit and yoghurts, and the welcome sight of both fizzy and still water to drink.

The hotel is just a short walk from the No5/24 tram stop, which whizzes you to the museums in under 10 minutes if you don't fancy the walk. The trams sell 24hr tickets on board, which we found great value.

We arrived at rush hour in Amsterdam and decided to catch the train from the airport to Amsterdam Zuid and then a No5 tram up to the hotel, rather than travel to the Centraal station and catch a tram down. Not sure this saved us much time in the long run, but we saw a whole different part of Amsterdam, which was fun and it cost a couple of euros less!

Many of the hotels within walking distance to the RAI Conference and Exhibition Centre (Novotel, Holiday Inn) are not particularly wonderful. Having tried most of them we switched to the Wyndham Apollo. We were not particularly impressed. Welcome by reception staff was lukewarm. Then we were given a room which had a faulty TV - a fact of which the receptionist was well aware. She offered us free films instead, but we insisted on another room. No assistance was offered for this transfer and we had to lug our clothes and bags ourselves. One thing we noticed in both rooms and in the hallway: the tiredness of the decor. Both could do with sprucing up and were definitely a bit on the old side. The view, looking out on the water and rowing club, was very nice though. The bar area is nice and pleasantly decorated (with nice staff members), the restaurant overpriced and a tad pretentious. We've never seen a more limited and disappointed menu. The same restaurant is used for an excellent and sumptuous breakfast. Lots of choice.
Be alert: there are some steps in this area which are treacherous and badly marked. My wife hurt her knee quite badly when she missed one of these steps and fell down. Great start for two days of business in Amsterdam! Tip: pay for the hotel parking as parking on the road is even more expensive.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room on the side of the water (if there are any 'fresh' ones)

Me and 3 friends came to stay here in July (2013) and were very surprised at what a lovely hotel we had chosen! It's situated just out of the centre however this caused us no issues, we enjoyed the walks to and from the centre very much!

The bedrooms were gorgeous! Air conditioning, mini bar, very modern decor and layout - we loved it. The beds were outstanding, I could not have asked for anything more comfortable!

We didn't eat in the hotel simply for the fact it was very expensive, and didn't believe one could possibly eat £25 worth of bacon for breakfast. We did however, try the bar! Delicious cappuccinos and lattes brought out on to the canal view bar area. The waiters were delightful - couldn't do enough for us! We also arrived at the hotel very late one evening after experiencing some of Amsterdam's finest coffee-shops - we had the 'munchies'! They ordered us pizza direct to our rooms - HOW FABULOUS!

As for the reception service - that was great too! We arrived at the hotel 45minutes before scheduled however there was no problem in checking us into our rooms there and then! The concierge had to give us directions daily to The Vondelpark, The Anne Frank Museum, The Sex Museum... You name it, he had to direct us there!

An extremely enjoyable stay at the Wyndham Apollo Amsterdam, I would highly recommend it.

I stayed here in January 2013 and gave the hotel4 stars but am increasing the review to 5 stars. I arrived at noon and my room was not ready and really needed to put some things in the fridge and get out to my meetings. They rearranged the rooms and let me have a room.

Room faces the water and is quiet.

Great location.
