The hotels is very well connected to the central station and Schipol airport. Location is just perfect, you are walking distance from all the places of interest. I suggest to book trough the hotel website instead of agents cause for the same price (or even less sometimes!!) you can get nice extras: we had a free drinks card and breakfast... More

First off, the location of this hotel is ideal. The staff are incredibly helpful, friendly, and polite. Free wifi, simple and comfortable rooms. Coffee machine is a nice touch. Only drawback I really noticed was the lack of a mini-bar.

The check in process was simple and the concierge was friendly. He explained all services and provided directions for getting around town. The hotel is in easy walking distance to all the central Amsterdam attractions and train station. Wifi was included and the room was bright and clean but quiet.

Great location and service. Nice breakfast and the restaurant is very cosy. The room is great with free nespresso coffee provided by a coffee machine. Always they put a fresh bottle of water free of charge. The staff is very kind.

I'm disappointed to have to leave a mixed review of this hotel, as it has been my favorite in Amsterdam for several years and I've stayed here 2 or 3 times prior with nothing but positive comments. But I was much less impressed this time during my week-long stay (13-20 January 2015). First, the wireless internet was not functional at... More

stayed here for four days over new year, the hotel is in a great location handy for restaurants. Our room was a decent size and well appointed. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful and would definitely stay here again.

The beds were so comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. We got a bottle of prosecco for nye. And because one of the cleaners accidentally threw away our shopping the hotel replaced the chocolate and my deodrant with some more prosecco and albus gloves. We were so grateful for that. I would definitely recommend this hotel to people who... More

Great location. Everything is in walking distance. The hotel is a bit minimalistic and dark - for my taste. The people and service make up for it. They couldn't be more friendly and helpful. I loved the coffee and goodies in the lobby. Be careful when you ask the "coffee and cake" when you really want pie and ice cream!

Dear Sharon, I am happy that you have enjoyed the Albus as a the perfect base for exploring Amsterdam. Did you know that the dark purple color of our hallways have a psychological effect on our guests? They automatically lower their voices and this of course is very convenient for other guests in their hotel rooms. Thank you for taking... More
