"great value hotel"
Everything was fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was small but clean and friendly staff. Great location next to the Rijksmuseum and across from the Hard Rock Cafe. Leidseplein is a short walk across the bridge where there are many restaurants and clubs. Very affordable rates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel but service was not as expected"
The hotel location is great with everything close. I placed the level "Please clean the room" before noon that we went to walk around the city and when we arrived: surprise "nothing happened", the room was exactly the same, then I asked to the front desk ext 2201 for a couple of towels around 4:30 PM and I had to call 4 times for them until past 7 PM […] when I received the towels. I haven't call too many times for towels specially from a Best Western hotel. Another black point is that the hotel doesn't have parking and it cost 30 Euros per day from a third party. I suggest to include a good discount for parking to those guests that arrives by car to this hotel. The good part was the quality of the breakfast (offcourse not included that cost 9.5 Euros per person). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall not bad - see below for setbacks.."
Overall it was a good experience. Hotel staff were very courteous. Checking in/took a little longer than expected because of long cues. Location is one block away from Rijkmuseum, 10 minutes walk from Leidsplein (restaurant hub etc) and ATM and 5-10 minutes walk away from local transportation depending on which line you are taking. However, location […] was a setback if you were going into the heart of Amsterdam (Dam sq/rembrandtplein) on a daily basis and coming back late at night but again, being away from the craziness helps at times. The room was of ok size, with a safe and clean. The bathroom was really really small, you could get into an accident if you are not careful inside the bathroom but it was alright for me as I'm a skinny guy but if you are a bit healthier, it may and will be a problem for you. The BED/MATTRESS was TERRIBLE. If you have back problems, I suggest you don't stay here as the matress was extremely soft and I couldn't sleep well. Internet was better than expected. You can connect multiple devices through wifi and speed is acceptable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Location. Great Price!!!!"
Great Location. Directly across the street from the two most popular museums in AMS. Also, across the street from the Holland Casino and Hard Rock cafe. Hottest bars and clubs a short 2 min work. Also, two tram lines run in front on the hotel, across the Canal. A must Stay!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for 2 nights for work - booked a larger room, everything was fine, great staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect location for visiting museums. Right on the canal. Easy access to transportation and restaurants. Clean room, new shower, TV, wifi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location within walking distance of museums."
Great location. Convenient to museums and we walked throughout the central city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best location in Amsterdam"
It is located within walking distance of Dam square, All the museums, it is actually right next door to the rjiksmuseum, not to mention it is located on the "rodeo drive" or 5th ave. equivalent of Amsterdam. Rooms are small, but for the price, there is no way to complain.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and great location"
The bathroom were a bit small but im a big guy so I guess thats relative. Otherwise great hotel and a perfect location for anyone on holiday.Genuine Expedia guest review
At first, this was the first best western I have ever stayed worthy of the name "best". But as the days went by it got to good and then just barely ok. Mostly because the wifi is probably the worst I have ever encounter; free public hotspots around the city were much better. Other than that, hotel is clean, service is good, neighborhood is great, breakfast […] better than I am use to in Europe (particularly Amsterdam). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to museums and Vondelpark"
Our hotel room was comfortable, although the layout of the room could have been improved. The key feature of this hotel is its location: close to the major museums and to Vondelpark. This location made all our explorations of Amsterdam easy. We also enjoyed the "run of the house" rate, which included a free breakfast each morning. The desk clerk seemed […] a little surprised by our free breakfasts, so this must not be a common feature. Be sure to ask your travel agent about getting the "run of the house".

"If it wasn't for location...."
This place is just blah... It's our 2nd time there. Nothing special. Rooms aren't quite clean. This time our room was in the basement. STAY AWAY from the basement. Yes, rooms are larger but NOISIER! Our bed was two twins together and it had a HORRIFIC quality of mattress. Breakfast is €12.5/person and just across the street you get te same for €4.50 If […] it wasn't for location, I would have never returned. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good staff and service, small room"
This was my second stay here,in two years. Great location. Clean facilities. Attentive staff.monly issue is room was really small.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay when visiting Amsterdam"
The staff was outstanding, the location and hotel were great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, great staff, wonderful location"
The hotel was really nice and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The location was fantastic, especially for someone looking to see the sites in Amsterdam for the first time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel for Van Gogh, Riksmuseum, concerts"
Wonderful hotel far enough away from the crazyness of downtown Amsterdam, yet close enough to get there if you want.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very nice and convenient"
We really enjoyed this hotel. Its right in the middle of the action but not loud from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. The room was clean, nice, affordable and they have AC!!! which is very needed in the summer months. We would definitely stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next door to the RijksMuseum."
We loved everything in that beautiful city. Our hotel was on a canal, 5 minutes' walk from cute cafes/pubs and from Leidestraat, a must-visit street of Amsterdam. It was difficult to choose from so many hotels. We were not disappointed with our choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved this hotel. You can't beat it for the price. It's a block from the Rijkes Museum and in walking distance from everything else. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. We booked our room for the night before we arrived since we were getting in very early. I had sent an email a week earlier requesting a quiet room. When we got there at […] 6am we had already been checked into a quiet room on the top floor facing the courtyard. Through out our stay the staff was helpful with suggestions, directions. The rooms are a typical size for Europe but very modern, clean and comfortable. I would have liked a harder mattress, but I always do, even in the US. The bathroom was very small but again very modern and clean. We would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel, great location"
we were spontaneous about accommodations in Amsterdam, and we found the Apollo in Expedia. it had good rates for the weekend, and was close to Leidsplein which was the location we wanted. it's cheaper to book through Expedia then on the site, but they let us use the computer so we booked through here. lovely location, right next to the Reich's museum, […] and close to trams. great facilities, comfortable amazing bed, and really nice staff. air conditioning was a must in Amsterdam in the summer, and they had the best one! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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
Good location and good breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
