Train station to Golden Tulip Apollo

What is the best way to get from the train station, (loaded with luggage) to the Golden Tulip Apollo Hotel? Also how far away from the main areas of interest, museums, etc. is the hotel? Then back to the airport.

Hi there,

It's 5 mins walk from the tram stop, so your risk whether you dare it. The tram stop is Apollolaan and is on both lines 5 and 24...

FYI: taxi from railway station woul be around 20 euro. And if you're coming from the airport, better avoid Central Station at all; tram 5 also comes to Zuid station and from there it is only 5 mins by tram (from Central 15-20 mins).

Hotel is more or less walking distance from Museumplein district, and just outside the inner city ring. So in many cases you'd use the tram to come into that ring and then walk...

Have fun,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Loaded with luggage?? - take a taxi. The stations are not known for ensuring that all lifts and escalators are working!! Not to mention all the hastle on the train with luggage!
