Our hotel enjoys a rich history. The design and interior of the hotel tell their stories today. The inspiration for the new look and feel of the hotel comes from the various transformations which the hotel has experienced.
In the 1920s, the Apollo Pavilion was built as a guest residence for the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. In 1961, the Apollo Pavilion expanded to become the Apollo Hotel. The hall which was once used as an Olympic sports hall is still located next to us: The Apollo Hall. The history of the Olympic Games can be seen in the wall behind the reception desk. This wall is covered with an artwork of tiles: a deconstruction of the original poster of the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. And there are white lines running across the floor in the lobby; these represent the Olympic starting lines.
