The hotel is in a great location, we walked to the art galleries, museums and station quite easily. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. I loved the complimentary refreshments in reception. After a long walk in... More

Neat hotel with an excellent location when visiting Amsterdam - Everything necessary within a walking distance. Nothing much to complain about the rooms, except the street noise in the night time, for which the hotel provides earplugs though. The earplugs together with the fan will take care of the streetnoise in the downmost rooms, which are ok for a short... More

The staff were extremely helpful when the airline lost our baggage, and were more than happy to assist us throughout our entire stay. The... More

Dear Danielle, We love that you loved the Albus! The hotel is indeed in the city center but also near a few public transport spots where you easily can get on the tram or subway to travel to other parts of the city.

It was a nice stay. The room and toilet was clean. Rooms are reasonably sized. A little noisy as there is a pub around the corner. The breakfast was ok as it was not warm. Recommend for front desk to update restaurant when breakfast has been paid for, to avoid trouble and misunderstandings. Service staff is good.

The apartment had a separate entrance, but the steps to get to it were verrryyyy steep. It had a kitchen, living room, dining area, bathroom, and bedroom.

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
