Fantastic location in Amsterdam - walking distance to everything! The staff is very friendly and will do everything they can to help. The street is a bit noisy at night, but having said that, the beds and pillows are lovely and I had some great nights of sleep.

I was so excited to write a review when I first entered the Albus. The staff was very friendly and even gave us four free drink vouchers at the bar for the lift being out of service. But then it all started to fall apart . We were there Tuesday- Friday and Tuesday/Wednesday we good but then Thursday comes and... More

It is difficult to find a family room in Amsterdam in the week before Easter, at a reasonable price. I found The Arbus, and it was a good find, though a bit expensive. A recent hotel, in a contemporary modern Dutch design style. We had a nice spacious room with a double bed, and a sofabed for the children (which... More

Great experience & kindness from all the employees who welcome everybody offering a cup of coffee or tea. And I also enjoyed the liquorice candies in the hall:-) Warm and cozy room with large bathroom with totally different design style from the room (which created a very nice contrast). Free coffee in the room, large flat tv and soft pillows.... More

Excellent friendly staff that was helpful in booking trips and providing suggestions on things to see while visiting. My flight arrived in the early morning and my room was already available. Located in a great location for walking to major points of interests. Was a little farther away from Central Station than expected but still within walking distance.

Hello valuable guest, I am glad to read that you had a great time in Amsterdam and that we could acommodate you early in the morning on the day of your arrival. The central train station is a 20 minutes walk away, but only a 5 minues tram ride from the Albus. Our reception sells tickets for the same price... More

Excellent location, close enough to the town centre for a short stroll but far enough away to escape the noise and hustle and bustle. Plenty of restaurants, cafés and coffee shops a minutes walk away. Excellent service, every member of staff we spoke to was friendly, courteous, professional and spoke very good English. Every time we ventured out we were... More

Hello precious guest, Thank you very much for leaving such an extended review and for all your nice compliments! I sincerely apoligize that housekeeping did not meet our standards with regards to the bedding and the sock under your bed! We clean all rooms thoroughly after each check out, including the space under the bed. Of course we also aim... More

After looking at many hotels, we decided to go with the this one. On arrival, the staff were most attentive and helpful. There was coffee and water beside reception on arrival and throughout our stay. Our rooms were made up of a double and triple room on the 7th floor. They were larger the expected for a city stay, clean... More

Hello ladies, Thank you for your nice comments! I totally agree that our triple rooms on the 7th floor are perfect for a short break with a small group of friends of family. I am glad that you did not have to use the provided earplugs to have a quiet girls weekend and I hope to welcome all of you... More

We had a splendid stay in Amsterdam. This hotel has a very good service and has good clean rooms. Very near to all sites in Amsterdam. There is a very large choice of breakfast possibilities. We had dinner in the restaurant "Senses" of the hotel and it was good quality food and good service.
