Stayed at the Best Western Apollo Museum hotel in March 2013. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon around 3pm and had to wait about a half hour to get into our room. Hotel is very busy with large groups checking in and out but I was very pleased with the front desk staff, very courteous and worked closely with housekeeping to get us into our room. To explain our wait, we required a triple room and the hotel does not have many rooms with 3 beds.
This was my third trip to Amsterdam and I was by far most pleased with this hotel. GREAT location, very close to the Museums, metro and a terrific, shopping, dining, entertainment area of the city. Tram ride into the central area took 10-15 minutes. Hop on Hop off bus has a stop right around the corner and a Canal boat tour is located just steps away from the hotel. In spite of all this activity the room was very quiet. We had a very good sized room with 3 twin beds. Room was very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was a bit small ( about the size of a cruise ship bathroom) but VERY Nice. Only thing we did not like was the opaque bathroom door. We prefer something that would offer a bit more privacy. They offered a nice breakfast in the morning, typical european type of buffet but including scrambled and hard boiled eggs
I heartily recommend this hotel and would stay there again should I return to Amsterdam.
