Service and convenience
Excellent service from Hotel staff..... had my purse stolen en route to hotel.. and they were extremely helpful in cancelling cards etc. All staff encountered throughout stay were very polite, too. information.. whatever
A draughty window and curtains that hid the radiator (it was January)
*my tipDal Barone (Italian) just round the corner.. very good and reasonably priced.... All the museums... Contemporary Art museum, in particular.. Anne Frank House, Van Loon House... Rijksmuseum and Hermitage rather disappointing.. but Rijksmuseum has great cafe and shop. You can walk to all of these places from the hotel. And access the hotel from the Amsterdam Zuid station and the no. 5 tram.... quick and cheap from Schipol.
live at the apollo first the shortest way for the moon
nice place quiet area comfortable nice garden cosy
VERY NICE VERY COSY
Everything was ok.Very nice Hotel nice room and friendly personal.I will back in this hotel again
a very good simple hotel - but not 4 star level
clean, nice and comfortable - beds were excellent.
not four star standard: no minibar, internet should have been included in the price. Too pricey for what it is (a very good 3 star hotel)
Fine hotel, but not for businesspeople
Beautifull Hotel with nice patio to have your breakfast in.
Not a minus point, but a disgrace for such a hotel. They advertise with free 'Wifi', but the wifi connection is trimmed so that you can not even download your e-mail properly. When asked the hotel desk offers you a connection for €12,50. Please don't advertise with a bogus connection that is not even a connection.
Hotel needs upgrade and better maintenance.
Modern bathroom, some very helpful staff
Night staff double or triple up as front dest, bar, and maintenance staff - all inadequate. Internet service is terrible, and woefully inadequate lighting in room. Limited restaurant service. Tiny elevator. No porter service.
*my tipDo not stay here unless u have limited service requirements.
