A lovely hotel in a prime location. A little loud at night because of the main road but earplugs provided. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. You feel like you could ask them anything and they would try to get the information for you.

We arrived early at this hotel and straight away they offered us our room as it was ready. This was a bonus since we had been travelling all night! Staff helpful and the beds were so comfortable. Rooms were a good size for the two of us and the coffee machine was brilliant in the morning! We also got a... More

What a lovely little hotel. We stayed for 3 nights as part of a group and i honestly could not recommend this hotel enough. All the staff were so welcoming and polite especially Mariska on the front desk who was willing to help us find our way with recommendations on where to go. The hotel is very clean and the... More

We stayed for a week in the Albus, was in the perfect location, nothing was more than a 20 minute walk away. Staff were great. Nespresso coffee in the room. Definitely made the holiday so much more comfortable.

Was upgraded on arrival (had notified before stay that it was our anniversary and also for a birthday) and they held our luggage for a few hours until we were able to check-in (also held our luggage after check out as we...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Albus over New Year. The room was clean and fairly spacious and the bed was comfortable. The shower was a little lacklustre but it was, at least, nice and hot whatever time of day we showered. The staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful at all times and the hotel is located minutes away... More

This is my first review but I plan on doing more as this is my first trip to Europe and am writing up different restaurants and hotels. The service at the Albus was mediocre at Best, but that was not my real issue with the hotel. I've traveled a lot over my life time for business and leisure and I... More

Hello Mike, I regret to read that your overall experience at The Albus was not according to your expectations. It is certainly not a standard procedure to charge an additional fee for cleaning. However, certain circumstances such as smoking in the room require us to make dicisions alike. Though, we do always politely inform our guests in advance, so prior... More

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.
