The moment I had to drag my case up the 10 stairs to the front desk (without assistance) and observed the filthy carpet in the corridors, I knew that the Apollo Hotel was less that what one would expect. The Hotel appears to combine two interconnecting building, which are connected via a maze of corridors. Definitely not disability friendly. The... More

I only tried the executive club room , brilliant, big , clean, modern , free wifi , greate brekfast , amazingly central. Its not a typical 4 star but also 138 euro plus 25 extra for club room is lower than most four star hotels in europe with this kind of location

We stayed for four nights and certainly wouldn't stay there again. The location is great but that's all I can say. Food really average, rooms tiny and old. You have to carry your bags up and down stairs and drag them along endless corridors. The hotel has a confusing layout and I would certainly not have known how to get... More

The Apollo in Utrecht is in a fantastic location, right in the middle of all the shopping and steps from the lovely canals, bell tower and restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast & coffee is good. The worst thing I can say is that I had a difficult time finding it - the entrance is nestled in... More

As part of a mini tour of The Netherlands my friend and I checked into a twin room at the Apollo Hotel. Centrally located, it was easy to find from the train station. This hotel is quite basic and rather dingy. The guy on reception who checked us in was lovely although, unlike other hotels in the Netherlands, we weren't... More

The Apollo, formerly hotel Smith, (The name is still on top) is a very centrally / conveniently located hotel in the heart of Utrecht. They have clearly upgraded the place and in the main successfully but it will always remain an old building with new fittings which do not always match. The sliding door to the not originally fitted en-suite... More

Arriving by train you pass through a modern shopping centre and a market square to get here. Round corner from hotel is older part of town with lots of restaurants and lively bars. Hotel is clean and practical. We had breakfast elsewhere. Recommend Utrecht as central to Holland.

We stayed in room 801 which has a window to the back yard and is right next to the elevator. I woke up constantly during the night because of two things: every time someone used the elevator (or walked through a nearby door) there was a loud bang. And every 15 minutes during the whole night a nearby church played... More

The location of the Apollo Hotel is ideal in Utrecht - especially when coming by train. Requests for service (additional pillows, replacement of a noisy fan, etc.) were handled in a friendly and prompt way. The breakfast buffet was very good, combining more typically American foods (eggs, etc.) and more usual European foods (cold cuts, etc.). Aside from being too... More

Booked the apollo, as a result of a few searches. Position is perfect in Utrecht, walking distance to probably 200 eateries and yards from the grand canal. The hotel is clean, and for Holland very normal. The underground transfer carpet was a little tired , but it all worked for me.
