We regularly visit Amsterdam for long weekends and short holidays and we love the area around the Vondelpark. That is why Apple Inn hotel was a great choice being 2 minutes walking from the park and also next to a tram stop. Service was very good both last two times but nothing so special as a hotel. But to our surprise, this time we found a completely new hotel! Great big and open space reception with a bar and TVs and Mac computer for free internet and great breakfast!!! Totally renovated!
If we were lucky with the weather (loads of rain) that would be the most perfect stay ever :) Recommended! The newly made rooms and reception look more like of a 4star hotel. Although , note that the rooms are rather small, typical old Dutch architecture... but really cool.
