The greatest thing about the Albus Hotel was the staff! The people working in the reception was extremely helpful and always greeted us with a big smile! They gladly helped us with every question we had and even with booking a great table at one of Amsterdams best restaurants. The head receptionist even surprised us with a small bottle of... More

We spent two nights in the Albus in March 2015. We were warmly greeted on arrival and given details of the hotel and things to do in the area. The location of the Albus is excellent, it is within walking distance from all major attractions and there is also the tram nearby which runs very regularly. Our room was located... More

The hotel is right downtown in a very good location to visit the city and its museums. Our room was sort of underground but very cosy and comfortable (super bed!), and very quiet. Price is not cheap and breakfast was not included but it is definitely a nice place to stay.

I spent three days at the Albus in March 2015. I was surprised that so central a hotel could be so quiet. Also, though it does not appear large, it has everything one could want. Above all the staff at the desk, bar and restaurant were immensely friendly and helpful. I had a lovely stay.

This was my 2nd stay at the Albus and I can say that it is a high quality hotel that is in a great location but well placed for museums and restaurants. Highly recommended. Nice rooms and friendly staff. Good value for money.

We stayed here for two nights: had a free upgrade to a bigger and quieter room, coffee and tea machine in the room, good shower. We didn't try Senses restaurant and had breakfast around the neighborhood. It's very central and close to the central station (4-5 tram stops). Ask to the reception for tram and museum tickets, you'll skip the... More
