This is our fourth trip to the Albus. It is perfectly situated in the heart of Amsterdam right next to the Rembrandtplein and the flower market. It is easy walking distance to shopping and sights, about 10-15 minutes walk to the 9 streets area. Has a really good vibe of a trendy boutique hotel without breaking the bank. Rooms are... More

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. We flew in early in the morning for a 1 night 2 days family break. They had a room ready for us on arrival in the morning and kept our bags for a quick dash back to the airport on the second day. No issue was too small - all the staff were great. Rooms... More

Stayed on this hotel in February 2015. Front desk staff was very friendy, room was clean and spacious. Liked specially the Nespresso machine on the room, with coffee capsules free. I did not try the restaurant at the hotel, but is seemed good too. I would recommend specially for the location and great value.

This was booked as a last minute weekend away. The location of the hotel was great and the staff were very hospitable. The breakfast had good choice and we would happily go back and stay at Albus in the future.

I've stayed at this hotel twice visiting Amsterdam. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great and the price is very reasonable. Gay friendly and close proximity to some the best gay bars.

The main reasons for staying in this hotel again for me are; Beds and bedlinnen were very comfortable. Place of the hotel great and service was fabulous. Breakfast was a large buffet with everything needed to wake up happy after a late night.

I loved my stay at the Albus! I booked with them through their website two days before showing up on their doorstep, at which point Nele was incredibly helpful and eager to offer the best service I've seen at a hotel. She made sure my girlfriend and I were comfortable throughout check-in and led us to our room, which was... More

Friendly service from arrival to helping reserve for dinner to checkout. The great location made 10-15 minute walk to anything. One elevator and small breakfast room overtaxed at times during the mornings
