Room was small and very noisy. Not at all what we expected judging by the description provided on the hotel website. Will not be staying there again. On the positive side, the staff are excellent. With a quitter and more comfortable room the stay would have been enjoyable.

The location is excellent: walking distance to many sights but not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city and is easily accessible via public transportation. Don't let... More

Fantastic location in Amsterdam - walking distance to everything! The staff is very friendly and will do everything they can to help. The street is a bit noisy at night, but having said that, the beds and pillows are lovely and I had some great nights of sleep.

I was so excited to write a review when I first entered the Albus. The staff was very friendly and even gave us four free drink vouchers at the bar for the lift being out of service. But then it all started to fall apart . We were there Tuesday- Friday and Tuesday/Wednesday we good but then Thursday comes and... More

It is difficult to find a family room in Amsterdam in the week before Easter, at a reasonable price. I found The Arbus, and it was a good find, though a bit expensive. A recent hotel, in a contemporary modern Dutch design style. We had a nice spacious room with a double bed, and a sofabed for the children (which... More

Great experience & kindness from all the employees who welcome everybody offering a cup of coffee or tea. And I also enjoyed the liquorice candies in the hall:-) Warm and cozy room with large bathroom with totally different design style from the room (which created a very nice contrast). Free coffee in the room, large flat tv and soft pillows.... More
