Good decor, fabulous pillows (!), good-sized room, really helpful staff. Shame no fridge in the rooms (although bottled water provided each night), personal taste is for a cold drink. I know this is part of the Eco-thinking though.

Stayed at The Albus for two nights. The welcome was amazing at the reception, felt very personal and caring. The room was rather large (do not mistake the pictures of the suite) but the shower/restroom was a bit old fashioned and require some renovation. For a night or two I would definitely recommend this hotel because of its location near... More

This hotel is nice and trendy. It is quite central so I was able to walk around the city. Staff is friendly and capable. I really didn't have any complaints. It is not cheap, but prices are reflected on the service, quality, and location.

We had a triple room, since a friend was meeting us in Amsterdam. it was a great location and clean hotel. The staff was helpful. You couldn't pick a better area to be located in my opinion. The only issue I see someone having is it seemed to me that the hotel had no air conditioning in the room-- at... More

The room was clean -- tiny, but this is Europe. The best part was the location, in the center of everything and with many trams nearby. We were able to book a triple -- which not all hotels offer, and this is a plus.

This is actually a pretty decent hotel in a good location EXCEPT when it's hot outside. I had the misfortune of checking in when it had been in the 30's C (high 80's F) for at least a week in early July, which I'm told is unusually hot for Amsterdam. Asking for a quiet room away from the noisy street,... More

The service was first classed. On arrival we were greeted with warm smiles and offered drinks. Whatever we asked for we basically got. Our room was cosy but maybe slightly dated but it was cleaned. The reception area and reception is very contemporary and soft lighting in communal areas. The location we felt was perfect and just moments from Dam... More

After much research we decided upon this hotel, and boy are we glad we did. We arrived much earlier and they checked us in right away, staff was incredibly helpful and location was grand. Will be back!

Picked this hotel for a recent trip to Amsterdam for a few days break. Very friendly 'boutique' type hotel but was clean, great value and very central. A few minutes walk from most of the major places with a really useful guide book in the lobby as well as an area with coffee, cold water and a concierge type service... More

I enjoyed my stay in the Albus. It is on a main road but very quiet once inside the hotel. We had a balcony that was unexpected so that was a great bonus for enjoying a drink in the sun and relaxing. The hotel is perfectly situated for getting everywhere in central Amsterdam and I would recommend it. the breakfast... More
