I've been fortunate to travel to Amsterdam a lot and this was on of the best places I've stayed. Love the boutique feel you just don't get at the larger hotels. The staff is very very friendly and helpful and the room are clean, decent size (for Europe) and have comfortable beds. I stayed in the back of the property... More

The Albus is the best hotel in Amsterdam, excellent central location and just hop out the front for the tram. Close to the Ice Bar and other fantastic attractions, including major shopping strips for your enjoyment.

We spent nine (9) nights here from 22 - 31 August 2014. Nothing was a hassle and the staff were fantastic (especially Mariska and Julia). Would highly recommend a stay here, and the restaurant attached (Senses) was superb. The only minor criticism we had was that the rooms were very warm, and we only had fan to cool down at... More

A great location to base yourself from, well priced, clean and comfortable. The staff seemed very keen to help. If you've come to Amsterdam for a party weekend then this place is an excellent base from which to explore the city.

We arrived at the Albus completely soaked having walked from Central Station via the Anne Frank museum in a thunderous rain storm, where we were greeted with a friendly smile, a clean towel to dry off and a hot drink to warm up. We were then sat down and shown places that might interest us on a map which was... More

After we booked I noticed that there were some reviews that complained about the lack of Air Conditioning and that the upper floors were very hot. This definitely concerned us and we were pretty critical when we arrived. First off, the staff was extremely friendly upon our arrival (and throughout the entire stay..more on this later) The hotel was very... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Location is perfect for exploring the city, and easy to get to from central station. Staff was very professional and helpful! Only thing we missed was a fridge in the room.

Cute boutique hotel right in the center of the city. Very friendly staff. In regards to the lack of a.c. it was no problem because of the high-powered fan. We stayed in August (probably the hottest time of the year) and felt no discomfort because of the lack of a.c. Would definitely stay here again during another visit to Amsterdam!
