On Amsterdam’s most beautiful avenue

Step out of Apollofirst - Hampshire Classic and you’re immediately on Amsterdam’s most beautiful avenue: Apollolaan. In whatever direction you walk in this chique area of Amsterdam you’ll come across great restaurants, lunch rooms, cafes, shops and museums. But of course you can also go to a specific destination. We’re delighted to help you with this:

Art and culture
Take the tram towards the city centre and step out at the Nationaal Monument on the Dam. Various places of interest and museums are within walking distance from here. Madame Tussauds is close by, as is Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam and De Nieuwe Kerk with its interesting exhibitions. If you walk on further, towards Westerkerk, you’ll arrive at the world-renowned Anne Frank Huis.

Leidseplein is just 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel. A Valhalla for music and theatre. Choose from the varied programmes available at different theatre and music venues: DeLaMar Theater, Theater Bellevue, Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam, Paradiso and Melkweg. You can also visit the theatre around the corner, literally in this case: Apollofirst Theater also has a surprising programme of performances.

There are a number of great attractions for the children along the way to central station. They can make interesting discoveries about science and technology in Science Center NEMO. The Scheepvaartmuseum is close to NEMO, where children can see and experience how the Netherlands is formed by the sea. They can also walk around the East India Company ship, De Amsterdam, berthed next to the museum.

Parking and forest
The city’s largest park, Vondelpark, is not far from the hotel. Free concerts and performances are given in Vondelpark Openluchttheater throughout the summer. Amsterdamse Bos (forest) is just a few kilometres drive from the hotel and in the summer months you can enjoy large-scale theatre events in Bos Theater.

“Quirky and interesting”

This hotel turned out to be an unexpected pleasure. There are a few things I would change, but it definitely goes in my recommend file. It's located in a lovely, upscale neighborhood south of the city. Very convenient to Amsterdam Centre, but without all the stag parties and the persistent smell of weed (lol). Tram #5 is two blocks away and takes you directly to the heart of it all. The good: I was in room 22 and it faces the back, over looking a lovely courtyard. My room was actually a suite with a kitchen. There was a long balcony and chairs. Very pleasant. The design is...well...hard to describe. Thrift shop meets Dracula' cousin? Mismatched furniture, over the top black drapes, word but fun. The breakfast room is really lovely; however it was not included and for €16.50, you may want to walk over to Beethovenstraat for something more reasonable. What would I change? Buy a double bed. The childlike, narrow single beds are pushed together, but easily come apart. (Why Europeans like baby beds will always be a mystery to me...) Also, buy a shower curtain!! You take a shower and water is everywhere. Then, when you walk in the bathroom, you hit a spot you forget to dry and your socks are soaking wet. Irritating and unnecessary. I am returning to Amsterdam in early September and plan to book again.

“Pleasant stay.”

We stayed 3 nights in this older style hotel. It is clean, comfortable and quiet. It is in a nice, peaceful suburb with parks in the area. The museum precinct is 5 mins on the tram which comes every 5 mins. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Our top floor room had a leafy outlook over the top of the courtyard. The big opening windows made the room bright and breezy. The lift is tiny and our room was quite small with little space for luggage. There was heating but no air con for cooling, but a table fan was provided.However the bed was comfy and the bathroom was spotless and a reasonable size. There was no fridge or kettle which was a little disappointing. We didn't eat at the hotel as there are cafés, bakeries and restaurants close by. There is also a supermarket just around the corner near the tram stop. The no 5 tram passes close by going either direct to the centre of the city (about 15mins) or out to Amsterdam South train station (about 5 mins) which links to the airport.. It is very convenient. Bike hire was double the price from the hotel. Better to go into town to hire a bike. We enjoyed staying here and liked the quiet area after the hustle and bustle of Central Amsterdam.

“Handy hotel for the RAI”

Hotel is clean and functional with helpful and friendly staff, about 10 minutes to walk to the RAI exhibition centre. The only downside is you hear a lot of noise from the corridors as people come and go. Staff helped me to find somewhere to hire a bike and explained where things were located.
