“Impressive hotel with first class service level”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

From the entrance and the friendly welcome by the staff until the amazing rooftop terrace, everything in this hotel breaths class and a high service level.
The rooms don't just have an amazing view over the city of Amsterdam but also give you all the comfort you can ask for. Great bed by the way!!
The bar on 'Floor 17' is awesome! If you're lucky and the rooftop terrace is open, do have a drink and enjoy the great atmosphere and priceless view. Don't hesitate tot make reservations for the restaurant on the 17th floor. Not only is the food sublime and from a level you don't experience very often in a hotel, also the service and again the view over Amsterdam makes this an experience that will make you come back. I know I will!

Dear PanHuyzen,

What a pleasure to read your review of your recent stay with us. Thank you for sharing this review and for all the kind words.

It is exactly these kinds of guest experiences that my team and I strive for day in, day out!

Many thanks as well for the kind words you spent on our rooftop terrace. We have only recently opened this outlet; such reviews only make us more confident that it was good we did!

The printout of your review now has a nice spot in our canteen; there it serves a motivator for the entire team!We definitely hope to welcome you back in our hotel so we can assist you again in making your journey a success.

Warm regards,

Boudewijn Martens

This hotel has class, style and most of all it has a very very classy bar on the top floor!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and my room had a great view. The staff are friendly and the mojito's are truly divine! The only thing I missed on the breakfast buffet was the bacon, but I would love to stay there again if I have to spend a night in Amsterdam!

Room Tip: Try having a corner room between the 10th and 15th floor.

Dear Heschipoe,

I have just read your review of your stay in our hotel and would like to thank you for your kind and enthusiastic words. We are very happy to get 5 out of 5.

Many thanks for your positive comments in regard to the facilities our floor 17 restaurant provides. I will pass your words on to our staff!

We very recently opened a rooftop terrace as well. I bet that, with the sun on your face and with the view being even more spectacular, your mojito will taste even better!

Once again thank you for your review and we absolutely hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again.

Kind regards,

The room was very modern and comfortable but quite small. The bed was good enough and I could sleep well. The toilet was not huge but ok... The shower was big and functional. Everything very new, in good shape and in nice colours. The cleanliness of the room was amazing!
I was missing a wardrove in the room, it has only a very small facility to hang clothes and it is not very practical. The Restaurant/Bar at the top floor is very nice and you can have a drink until 01.00 AM or so... The satff is very friendly and they gave me a very professional impression. Nothing extraordinary, I wouldn't come on vacations but for a business trip is quite good!

Dear Adrian R,

Thank you so much for your constructive feedback following your stay with us at the Ramada Apollo Amsterdam Centre.

The hotel opened its doors in august 2012; therefore one could indeed say our room as well as the rest of the hotel is still very new and modern. Thank you so much for sharing this with other travelers.

In addition we would like to express our gratitude for complementing our staff. It is our passion to deliver the best possible service every day again and guest compliments are the best motivation to strive to improve continuously.

In the event you were ever to change your mind and would consider visiting us for a holiday; we do provide executive rooms for our guests as well. These are larger and even provide a bath next to the large shower that you already mentioned.

Thank you once more for sharing your comments, we sincerely hope to welcome you back soon.

Kind regards,

Boudewijn Martens

This hotel is lovely, really nice rooms and bathrooms. very clean. Also very busy. Has a topfloor bar/restaurant open in the evening which is ridic expensive. If you miss dinner there isn't anywhere nearby to eat as its quite a secluded place, we ended up gettin takeaway via reception. The breakfast runs out of food and takes a while to be replenished and there are queues to get to the food. Sometimes can't find a seat at breakfast. China Airlines takes over part of the restaurant.
Other than the fact its mega busy its a nice place to stay just a little bit out of town when it comes to sightseeing. The I Amsterdam card gets you free travel included with the price so as long as you don't mind a 20 min half hour tram ride its not so bad.

Dear WKD811,

Thank you very much for taking time to leave us a review on Tripadvisor.

I’m however quit surprised regarding your comments towards the location of the hotel. Within a 5 minute walk, there is a lovely square with multiple restaurants and the tram ride should only take 12 minutes to the Dam Square.

Your constructive feedback towards our restaurant and bar area, are however highly appreciated. We will absolutely use your comments to improve our services and facilities.

Again, thank you very much for leaving us your comments.


With kind regards,

Fantastic hotel, very clean, huge rooms, clean bathrooms, really modern and superbly designed.

Staff are really friendly and helpful. Had one slight issue of a light flicking on/off and this was fixed immediately.

One girl (I believe her name is 'Fleur') I want to say extra thanks, really helpful and just brilliant at the front desk!

Easy one tram access in/out of town. Would return for sure

We chose this hotel at the last minute but were very glad we did. It was a tram ride away from Dam Square and all the tourist hubs but the advantage of this is that we were closer to more reasonably priced local restaurants and we saw more of the city. If you buy a 24 hour tram ticket then it is easy to pop in and out of the centre and the stop is 2 minutes walk from the hotel.

We had a double room with an extra bed for our son and it was warm, clean and comfortable. A lot of aircrew stay here so it must be good! It was very quiet at night and we really enjoyed the breakfast buffet with the views over the city.

If the weather had been warmer, there is a nice little park near the hotel for strolling.

If you want to travel to the airport on the hotel shuttle, book early as it was full.

Dear Michelle S,

Thank you very much for taking time to leave us such a wonderful review on Tripadvisor! I’m glad that we were able to provide you with such a pleasant stay as mentioned.

The tram stop is indeed just around the corner and the shuttle bus to the airport runs every 40 minutes. This shuttle service can be booked at the Reception Desk and has availability for 8 guests at a time.

Again, thank you very much for leaving our future guests such a useful review.

After reading other reviews on this page I was a little concerned about this hotel. However, the service we received was second to none. The hotel staff were lovely and very helpful and always very polite. The room was wonderful and we had a brilliant time despite my partner collapsing in reception due to sciatica. Would highly recommend this hotel. Although it was not in the city centre the tram is just down the road and very easy to get to the city. Amazing stay thank you.
