"Perfect for museum junkies"
The location cannot be beat if you are interested in the museums. Also close to major square with many restaurants. Close to tram stops. Our room was very small and a large person literally would not be able to turn around in the bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel next to the Volderpark"
The hotel is good, well located in the city. The twin bed is put together, so for friends to stay in is not much comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Smaller than a small dorm room"
I have strongly mixed feelings about Best Western Apollo Museum hotel. The location can not be beat, given it's just 1/2 block from the Reijksmuseum. It's also 1 1/2 blocks from tram and bus stop. This is great. In contrast, the hotel itself is okay but not great.. Mostly that is because the single room is small. REALLY small. Even claustrophobtically […] so. A college dorm room is about twice the size of the single room. I didn't really have a bed. It was more of a flat, narrow couch with a one inch foam mattress on it. The foam kept sliding off the bed. It was possible to request coffee/tea service in your room, but there's practically no place to put it. There's a small desk where the coffee service can go, but then the rest of the desk is utterly useless. TV worked fine. Internet worked fine. Phone worked fine. Bathroom was nice and new but tiny-- fundamentally a small water closet. Getting into the shower required squeezing around and through. The front desk service was fine. The breakfast, at an additional 10 euros, was very nice and worth it. They also host a happy hour from 8-9 p.m. that was also quite fine. So, overall, if you have no need to be in your room for anything but the barest of needs/time, and you're looking for convenience in a location, this hotel can really work. If you're looking for comfort and sheer loveliness in a hotel, look elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and great location"
This is a nice, very clean moderately priced hotel with excellent access to tourist attractions - next to the Rijksmuseum. The staff is very helpful, if busy. If you want space look elsewhere. The rooms are tiny. A good value overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and location"
Hotel and room was very clean front desk was very helpful! The price was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location by the museums"
We found this hotel to be excellent for our stay in Amsterdam. It is a very nice neighborhood and handy to the tram lines. The canal is lovely, one of the canal boat stops is a block away. The best part was that in the early days when we were getting lost wandering the Leidesplein, we could always find the Reijksmuseum and there was our hotel! The staff […] were good with recommendations on restaurants and tramlines to different sites. And the best scrambled eggs we'd ever eaten! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Museums"
Hotel is located across from major canal and about a block away from the Museumplein, and an easy walk to Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Also, within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was that they were working on plumbing two days in a row, and we were without water completely the first day, […] and only had cold water the second. Overall, we liked the location and are likely to stay there again. The room was a bit small, but clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to Rijksmuseum"
My rrom was tpcally small-od--but there was no heat! The thermostat didn't work, Rather than fix it, they delivered a plug-in heater to my room but jut left ity in the middle and didn't plug it in. I had to lug it to a corner near an outlet and figure out how to make the heater work. No room service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel near the city center."
Bruges was a great way to see medevial Europe. There are many sites with important works of art, churches, and buildings in a compact area.Genuine Expedia guest review
After looking at 2 rooms, 3rd room we were satisfied with. 1st 2 rooms had mushy beds, 1st room was tiny.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Service Quality in a Great Location"
Staying in any hotel for 11 days during peak season is likely to be tiresome, but we found the front desk of the Apollo extremely responsive, helpful and supportive of our family visit, including 3 grandchildren in their own room. Our experience was very favorable. Although the housekeeping service was a bit variable, it was understandable due to the […] very full hotel. The breakfast service was excellent, the location away from the crowds but close to the museums, trams and restaurants. The rating as family-friendly was well-deserved. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a worst hotel I have ever been too for this price. The hotel room was too small with a small single bed. I paid full price (in-fact more than their usual rate, thanks to hotel.com), but received the smallest hotel room there is. Hotel is right next to a busy street and you have to be too drunk to sleep in these rooms. The only plus with this […] hotel is that it is quite near to Museums.

"Good Value for the Money"
A very good deal for the money. Good location in Amsterdam, within walking distance to nearly all attractions. Buffet breakfast included in the cost of the room is a real plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Go if you don't find others!"
Small rooms, somehow far from center, access to tram is close, walking is quickest, staff is not friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel. Great location. Friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling To Amsterdam we stayed 10 nights !!Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel not good enough service"
I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. 22-28 March 2013. I was disappointed from the front desk service. Whenever I needed something I was responded very poliatly but nothing was fullfiled. saying:yes..yes..yes., and nothing happened .Many times I was left in the middle of some request and the staff went on to do something else. It was annoying !! According […] to the web site it was suppose to be a cattle in the room- There was none. The weather was bitterly cold there was no respone for so many same request for a cattle ,eventually I gave up. Also I need an help with the internet and no assistence was given. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great stay as usual , got a fantastic price and will be back in April :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I am not picky when it comes to staying abroad. I thought the hotel was comfortable, clean and in a good location for anyone wanting to visit museums or party and enjoy the major casino in town (it's right around the corner). For anyone looking to visit the "Red Light District", the "district" is a 12 euro cab ride or a 15-20 minute walk. You could […] also use public transportation for a very reasonable rate, although I didn't use it. My only complaint would be the added cost for breakfast which I did not have. All in all, I would stay here again. Because I was a member of their rewards program, the agent who checked me in upgraded my room even though I booked it through hotels.com.

"Comfortable and quiet."
All of the staff were wonderful and helpful! Located in a great part of the city no need for a taxi, for what we paid it was an excellent stay. Wish the high speed Internet was included because the complementary connection wasn't very useful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location. Great atmosphere. Next to the Casino. The hotel gives you free tickets. Rooms are small but for the price I cant complain. I will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Recommended, but for solitary travelers only"
The cheapest rooms are the best prices you'll get around the Leidseplein/Meseumplein - but there's a reason for that: These rooms are *tiny* - an open bathroom door swings nearly to your bed, and there's no useable space on the other side of that bed. My room's accessible power outlet was also right behind the desk, which had to be pulled out further […] to make room for a power converter - this shrunk the room even more. It's an okay space, and a good affordable place to crash if you want more privacy and less madness than a hostel would offer. But the smallest rooms are absolutely inadequate for more than one person, and the larger ones aren't that much cheaper than elsewhere in the area. Recommended, but only if you're traveling on your own, and don't mind genuinely tight quarters. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fix the shower!"
All was fine, but the shower tended to overflow into the rest of the bathroom. That--and the slightly ridiculous breakfast price--are my only two caveats about this otherwise comfortable, well-appointed hotel with excellent service, right in one of the most convenient neighborhoods (walkable distance to all major points of interest ).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location and very comfy"
The staff was very friendly, the location was absolutely perfect, and the room was super comfy. Its just around the corner from the museums and across the canal from a great neighborhood full of ethnic restaurants and pubs. I was traveling alone, so I stayed in a single room, which has one single bed. The room was small but fine. I was only there for […] two nights, so didn't spend much time in the room anyway. When you check in, opt for the breakfast for an extra 9 euro each morning, its worth it to start your day with a hot americano and fresh breads and fruit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to the boat ride"
rooms way to small just enough for one person only!!! customer service sucks .but was close to the boat ride . really hard to find its all the way down past the shopping mall on a quite road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought this hotel/room was absolutely perfect. The price was great, I was in the museum district near everything. It was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Choose with Caution"
If you're in Amsterdam for the art, you can't have a better location as this hotel is at the doorstep of three of the best galleries in town. It is, however, a 15min tram ride to Centraal and too long to walk so another consideration. As many other reviews indicate, the rooms are arrestingly small. I never complain about small European hotel rooms but […] this one warranted mention. The walls are also paper thin so you can hear people walking down the hall, or worse, talking/running loudly. The room could also have been a bit cleaner; there were finger prints and questionable stains on walls. It was okay for 3 days but we would not stay here again.

"Major museums right around the corner"
This hotel is in an excellent location on the upscale PC Hooftstraat. The major museums (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, Stedelijk) are literally right around the corner, as is the magnificent Vondelpark. The canal neighborhoods are within a 10 minute walk, and Dam Square isn't much further. Rooms are comfortable and clean; the hotel has a nice little bar in […] the lobby, and both high end and budget restaurants are very near by. But the best part of the hotel is the staff - they go over and above to make sure you are comfortable and happy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location!! Close to every Museum, Coffee shops and club área. And of Course... Every body is pot-friendly :-)Genuine Expedia guest review
great hotel. good location, close to everything. Even though the room is small (2 people max I would say), the room was modern, central air, super clean, and very comfortable. Great stay and I would come back to this hotel againGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great for exploring the city!"
Great location, very modern, clean and pleasant. Rooms are small and breakfast is boring (need to pay extra for omlette or orange juice!).Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location and depend on the location"
my room is next to the front desk... very noisy when people come in and out..service is nice and very convince locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room is small and also stinky, bed felt like it was falling apart, and the bathroom (though very cute) it was built weird. When you shower the water overflows all over the floor. The Staff was not very friendly but no one in Amsterdam really is.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room I was given seems to be an extension of the hotel, which meant rooms are small with an even smaller bathroom (don't bother closing the door to do #2 because it will hit your knees!). One evening I had to make my way through a group meeting in the restaurant/bar area and this was quite an inconvenience. Also, the mattress was extremely uncomfortable […] and with rooms facing the main street, especially on street level, was very loud. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"one year anniversary trip"
We didnt like our room the first night and asked for a different room. We were told to check back after 2p instead of 11a and when we asked for a different room the lady at the desk was alittle displeased we hadent vacated the room yet. We quickly pack up our things and were put into a different room.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Right where it's happening"
Hotel personnel were extremely helpful and friendly. There are lots of maps and brochures for those who want to explore the city. They also provided discounts for local vendors. They also gave me directions to the bus (2 blks) and saved me 28 Euro on the airport trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room, i'f you're under 4 feet tall"
I booked a room for two, as I was going with one of my best friends, we asked for two beds, what we ended up getting is a very very very small mattresses joined together, which still ended up taking most of the 8X12ft room (if you can call it that)...Unless you plan to spoon whoever you share the room with, I would say this is a "couples" room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to art and party areas"
Location was excellent for visiting art museums and also Leidesplein. The staff was friendly and helpful, but the desk area was small and often crowded. The breakfast was very sumptuous, but it was a bit expensive. The room was quiet, even though it was on a busy street and canal. The view from our room was spectacular. The bed was comfortable, although […] a bit small for us. The bathroom looked very shiny and new, but it was hard to keep the water in the sink and shower. Altogether, it was a pleasant experience staying here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very small room. No place for luggage. It was impossible to enter the restroom if other person was sitting near the table. Good location - near the Rijhmuseum and city center. Good transportation opportunities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, clean room and nice hotel"
We were placed in the basement of the hotel. Rooms were clean and decent size. Bathooms were also very nice and clean. Since we were in the basement there was very limited view outside because the windows are located very high and close to the ceiling. The Hotel is located very close to shopping and dinning area. There were also plenty of coffee shops […] and pubs fairly close. The neighborhood itself is rather quiet although you could hear people walking/talking outside in the morning since the room was right next to the street. We didn't spend much time in our room since we were in Amsterdam for fun. We also didn't eat the breakfast but it looked like a good spread when we walked out of the lobby. TV is also very small but we didn't care since we were not in the room much. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, friendly staff."
I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights with a friend while we toured Amsterdam. The front desk staff were very friendly, professional and accomodating! The hotel is two blocks from the museum district. If you don't mind walking, you can get to all the major sights (Anne Frank House, Central Station area, Palace, Heineken, museums) within 20 minutes without […] having to take public transportation. The room was nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to all major museums"
Rooms are quite small, everything else is satisfying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, nice neighborhood, the bus stop from the airport is only two blocks away, and from the hotel you can easily reach the public transportation, however if you're looking to stay close to the red district light this place is not for you. The only thing that my girlfriend did not like is the fact that the bathroom door is a glass door facing […] the bed, we are extremely comfortable with each other but it is quite uncomfortable even though the only thing you can see is the person's shade. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was very small but the price was great. Our window opened to a canal view. Walking distance to all the RITZY stores. Hard Rock is about a block away. Canal tour is across the street. Van Gogh Museum is walking distance too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location for a couple days!"
If I found myself in Amsterdam for 1-2 nights again, I would definitely stay here again! This was a mid-range priced hotel and definitely didn't have any extra flair in the rooms - I stayed in a double room and it was simple and did it's job - i.e. it was a place to crash at the end of a long day/night exploring the city. The location is really amazing […] - I had a view of the side of the Rijksmuseum from my window, that's how close you are to all the museums. It is also located on the street with all the fancy shopping, if you're looking to take advantage of that tourist tax refund and buy yourself a Louis. It is also right near the Hard Rock and Holland Casino, so if you're looking for that type of "american fun" scene, you're right there. It was a super short walk to Leidesplein (fun square with tons of bars) and not even a 15 minute walk to the Anne Frank House, Floating Flower Market, Dam Square...etc etc. Seriously - amazing location. There is also a canal tour that stops basically right outside the hotel. Now just to clarify, I would not stay here if I was going to be staying for a whole week...I would like a hotel/room with a little more comfort/decor to relax in. But for a few nights, when I was barely in the room - PERFECT. Place was clean, staff was friendly, breakfast looked really good (although we skipped and went to a pancake house instead)...I would highly recommend!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very close to Reijksmusem and Van Gogh museum"
This hotel was comfortable and the staff friendly and very helpful. They helped me deal with some traveling issues, even though it was not their duty. The internet was included, but breakfast was not. It would have been nice to have breakfast included, especially for the price paid. The room was small, even for European standards. We did not have much […] room to put our suitcases and walk around the bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location of this hotel makes up for the fact that my shower didn't drain very well. It is right next to museums, restaurants, and the tram. The front desk was extremely helpful with suggestions of places to go, directions for public transportation, and an umbrella when it rained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
