The title says it all. Friendly staff and a great location make this place a good place to stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were not only ready to help but thoughtfully proactive as well. On our last morning the street was closed for a parade meaning that our transfer bus back to the airport would... More

In overall we liked the hotel and our short stay in it. The rooms were clean and pretty comfortable even being rather small. A coffee machine in the room and a rich set of teas in the lobby are good added value. The only issue is the price - I would expect a much more spacious and let's say interesting... More

Yes for the location, hospitality and friendly service. We are 2 friends visiting Amsterdam for the first time and the location was great to explore the most interesting places of the city. One girl of the staff made it possible to put us on the VIP list of Jimmy Woo Club. Very happy about this! Nice amenities, breakfast can be... More

Hi Kaatje, Thanks for the review! Our staff really knows their way around Amsterdam. Really cool to hear that you've made it to the VIP list of this club with the help of our staff! We're currently busy with making our breakfast buffet even more extensive for our guests. We expect the upgrade to be ready next month! And you... More

One usually gets suspicious when a hotel calls itself "design hotel", as a real design hotel does´t have to say that. Same for the Albus: A good portion of the "design" is quite standard mid-quality furniture and decoration. They should maybe call themselves "Service and Great Location Hotel". The young staff is simply outstanding. When you check in, there´s most... More

Perfect location for exploring Amsterdam, tram stop just down the road. Family room was perfect for the four of us, although the sofa bed was not quite big enough for two children, but they did bring up an extra bed. Very friendly staff who made a fuss of our children and especially in the restaurant when their food was as... More

Overall very pleased with the Albus. Very helpful staff, rooms not huge but very nice. Good sized bathroom, nice amenities, totally comfortable. Restaurant was over priced, especially for breakfast. My only complaint about the facilities was that the room was too warm and the only way to cool it down was to open a window. This of course let the... More

Stayed in a double room bookes as single for one night, the room was tiny and a bit loud due to the fact that it was located directly to the lobby with only one door in between. However, the great customer service made in all up: very friendly staff, free coffee and german newspaper hanging at my door the next... More

The Albus is a slightly unasuming hotel on 8 floors. About a mile from the station and red light district, it is still in the middle of shops and restaurants with trams passing the door. The place is modern with very slick decor. The rooms were well kitted out with high quality furniture and furnishings. We had a great triple... More
