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!
- 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
