Within walking distance to Vondelpark and the RAI Convention Centre, the location of the BEST WESTERN Apollo Museumhotel Amsterdam City Centre could not be more central or ideal for those wanting to experience the popular attractions of the city. The multilingual staff is available 24 hours a day to help you with anything you need. The hotel is family friendly, and can arrange child care services while the parents enjoy a night on the town in the theatre district. With easy access from the airport, the hotel can help arrange shuttle services to and from your flight.

Area description
The magnificently renovated Apollo Museum Hotel Amsterdam City Centre is located right where the fashionable P.C. Hooftstraat meets the atmospheric Stadhouderskade. It would be hard to find a more central spot to stay in Amsterdam! The hotel does not have an own parking lot, the nearest places to park are Byzantium and Museumsquare. For users of the public transport, use tram 2 or 5 to stop Hobbemastraat.

I have already filled in a survey form, following your email to me on 2 November. The main issue was that when we arrived at the hotel, nobody seemed to know about the reservation, even when we quoted the number. Fortunately, we had printed the actual document, without which we would have been stuck.

Location, location, location

OK, the standard rooms are really TINY. (Can upgrade at added cost). Breakfast buffet is extra but good value if booked in advance. BUT, if you are visiting the museums, the Concertgebouw, or the Leidesplein shopping+ district, the location could not be better (like, one short block to the Rijksmuseum). A quick tram ride (on a modern, double length tram) will take you to town center. Also, no need to avoid using the 197 bus from the airport - it comes to a stop right next to the Rijksmuseum!

Nice stay

The hotel itself is very well situated and within walking distance to many exiting shopping areas and museum district.Beautiful house! The room itself I got with my wife was rather disappointing concerning space, that is, much to small but at the reception you could buy an upgrade for 25 usd or euros per night for more "suitcase space".There was an hair dryer and a safe but no cooler for our preferences.Strange thing to have a light tinted glass door for the bathroom which leads to non privacy.Overall if you are going to stay at this good hotel, consider paying more for more space if needed and check out the bathroom door if privacy is a consideration.

I'd stay again

All and all, pretty good. The location _should_ be brilliant, but with the National Musuem being rebuilt (but open), and the Van Gough Museum now ~25min walk away at the Hermitage Amsterdam (till mid 2013) some of the local advantages have been lost. But its still in a good safe part of town, close to food and drinks and the Vondel park for a nice walk. The rooms are quite small (I would have struggled if I hadn't been alone), and the very nice and modern toilet/shower units is pretty small too. Free wireless, breakfast is EUR12.50 and is "OK". I wouldn't rave about this place, but given the range of rubbish hotels in Amsterdam, I would go back.

Best of best

I so loved staying in this hotel; the staff were so wonderful when I arrived a little late in the evening. Quite, clean room, and restful for an otherwise noisy Amsterdam city. Location is perfect, airport bus 197 drops you a block away (and pick it from there again for Eu4); trams 2,5 again one block round the corner and you are in the central part of the city within minutes. I always only ever stay in the museum area and this is the best place for it. A little expensive in summer but worth the dollar! Enjoy

MOAZ for vegetarians, on the main street after the bridge from Best Western, the tram route street, almost just where the shops begin, after American Hotel but opposite side. Skip Hard Rock Cafe, too crowded and meaty...
