Looked up and down trip advisor in search of perfect hotel in center city. Picked Albus after reading other reviews. The location is perfect central to popular areas, 12min walk to Red Light district, 15 min to Anne Frank or Van Gogh museums. don't bring a car you won't need it! Walk or bike to everything in town.

Overall, the experience was alright. But, I think I'll be looking for another hotel next time I'm in the area. First, the photos of the hotel look fantastic. But, when you're in the room, you see that the bathrooms are not very nice, and very out of date. Also, the furniture hasn't been maintained very well. In my room, the... More

The Hotel is in an excellent location within easy walking access to the whole of central Amsterdam. On arrival , reception could not do enough for our group of six. We arrived at about 10.00 O'clock not expecting to be in our rooms until 14.00; we were all in rooms within 15 minutes. Coffee was given to all of us... More

Great location and staff, in fact, one of the best staff I have ever met. Very friendly and helpful. The hotel is modern, clean, and up to date on what on expects from a hotel. It on a main street, which gets a lot of traffic, but that is to be expected when you book a hotel in the city... More

Located right next to Rembrandtplein, this is a great place to stay at when visiting Amsterdam. The service is great - right when we asked to check in the lady at the front desk offered us coffee and made sure we were updated on everything that was going on in Amsterdam during that weekend. We later on found out that... More

I stayed in May 2014 for a business trip and unfortunately only stayed one night but found the hotel to be perfect for my trip. The location of the hotel is great, very short walk to my office and only a 30 second walk to Rembrantplein, location is fantastic! The hotel is in good shape, quite modern with lovely rooms,...

We booked the Albus via a secret hotel deal and were very happy with our stay there. Staff were very friendly. Accommodation was great for two adults and one child we had plenty of room. We did have to leave the balcony door open as it got a bit stuffy. The hotel is very modern and overall we had a... More
