4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed there just one night. Pros: Hotel is nice, quiet and tidy. Staff is friendly and helpful. Great location - just 10 mins walk from the Dam Square. Cons: We had to wait nearly one hour for the iron hence the 4 star rating instead of 5.

The hotel has a good location. The staff were helpful and made us feel verry welcome. The room was comfortable, during the night some some noise from the street and the corridor, but the bed was so comfortable that we fell a sleep anyway. Have stayed there before and will come back.

We really enjoyed our too short a stay here. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room although compact was very comfortable. We would have no hesitation returning and recommending this hotel to others 😃

From check in to check out the staff at the Albus sees that you are well taken care of. We were given a free suite upgrade when we arrived which was a nice surprise. The room was huge with a separate sitting area. Bathroom was also large. The front desk staff were so helpful with restaurant suggestions. Their restaurant Senses... More

The hotel is beautiful, the moment you walk in you can tell its a hotel with class! I booked a smart city room as there wasnt any other option at the booking stage. But I didnt have the extra 45 euros to upgrade as i was on a budget as its near christmas. The photos are very misleading on here... More

Bed very comfortable, huge pillows and two best nights sleep for a long time. TV with various channels, free WiFi and Nespresso in room. Our break was to celebrate my... More

The Albus is a nice hotel, clean, very good service, very friendly with an excellent location. Room was good, comfortable bed, clean, good heating, very comfortable. Only complaint is the bathroom is a bit old and could use some minor maintenance, and there was a funny smell on the hall outside the room. Nothing to complain about. Aside from that... More
