Great hotel, would stay again next time I visit Amsterdam. Only the menu for lunch and dinner was small.Comment of K. Sylvia , Belgium the 2016-07-18
We arrived at the Ramada Apollo approx 10am, after taking the free shuttle ride from the airport to the hotel which takes 20 minutes without traffic The driver was very welcoming and polite On arrival to the hotel we were greeted with a very clean and welcoming reception The only downside is that there is a €150 security deposit to pay which we weren't told about before/during booking :( So make sure you have that extra!! The room we had was lovely, the bed was very comfortable with plush pillows! (Made daily and at your convenience) The en suite bathroom was an added bonus with one of the best showers we've experienced! The 17th floor bar is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a beautiful cocktail and a smoking area for all those interested. All in all a brilliant place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre of dam! Tram lines across the street from the hotel and its number 13 to go to Dam where there are many more places to visit We absolutely would recommend this hotel to stay in and don't think it'll be long before we return x PS. If you want to take taxis download uber on your phone - they can't overcharge ;)
"Great hotel "
Stayed here for 3 nights, got the free shuttle from outside the airport. The rooms were lovely and clean, great views of the city and friendly staff. Our towels were changed every day. We didn't have breakfast or dinner as we preferred to go into town but When we looked at the menu we found the price of the food was abit expensive! The bar on floor 17 was nice and had a chilled atmosphere! We got the tram every day into the centre which we purchased from the hotel shop. It was only a 2 min walk to the stop and only took 15mins to get into town. Great stay here and would recommend it
Nice modern hotel just a few tram stops from the city centre. Staff is super helpful and friendly, they are willing to help with anything you need. Breakfast is great with a huge choice of food, I can recommend fresh waffles, and amazing view from the 17th floor. The only minus was almost no toiletries in bathroom.
When we first booked the hotel we was a little worried about the hotel transport from the Airport to the hotel as we read a few reviews saying it was unreliable, however this was not the case for us, we only waited around 10 minutes when the bus arrived. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the Airport which is perfect. As we arrived we were welcomed by a very friendly receptionist. She gave us a map and explained how to get to all the tourist hotspots and explained which trams to get to and from the hotel. We stayed on the 16th floor and our room had an amazing view. I would highly recommend the 'floor 17' restaurant and bar. We eat here once (the burger in huge and delicious) and has a drink in here a couple of nights. The atmosphere at 'Floor 17' is spot on. The price for food and drink is the same as everywhere in Amsterdam. The roof top terrace had some amazing views but as we went in February it was a little nippy and the bar wasn't open which is understandable.
"They should try harder"
from the start i was wondering whether this hotel deserves the star class category it is in. We had some unpleasant experienecs although I dont expect that it happens always. We were allocated a room which was aleady occupied. It was embarassing and could have been worse if the person occupying the room was not as accommodating as the person who was there. Then there was an issue with the bathroom in the room that was allocated. Although the staff were quite apologetic and obliging our stay was not as good as we wanted it to be.
