We spent five nights here on our first trip to Amsterdam. The hotel is perfectly located round the corner from Rembrandtplein and all the action as well as walking distance to all the other attractions. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was quiet and although on the small side, it had everything we needed. The... More

The Albus Hotel is ideally situated to use as a base to discover Amsterdam. Located close to its centre, it doesn't take long to get to most location on foot. The hotel is clean, tidy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Everyone spoke English, most better than me. The room although compact, had all the necessary facilities to... More

Arrived at The Albus late at night after a long train trip from Switzerland. The room category we had booked was full, so we were upgraded to a larger room. To be honest, it was not ideal. Size OK, but layout adapted to the building and less than ideal, and it was at basement level. On balance, OK. Saving grace... More

We got stuck in Amsterdam and a different hotel didn't have our reservation. I called the Albus and they where very friendly and booked us in, nice rooms, staff where so friendly and nice to our kids, gave great recommendations for sushi near by. Rooms clean and modern. We just left feeling good about the whole experience.

Stayed at the Albus weekend of 20th July, hotel was modern and very clean. On arrival the staff were there to help you and offered you refreshments whilst you waited to check in. One member of staff came across abrupt and rude but this was not an issue. Helpful with directions around the city and also with excursions to book... More

Having never been to Amsterdam before we wanted to be sure we were pretty central and not way out in the suburbs. You can't get more central than the Albus. It's within walking distance of virtually every place you want to visit not to mention smack in the middle of the party district with its bars, dodgy cafes and restaurants.... More

We loved our stay at the Albus. The staff are very helpful, friendly, courteous, and professional, and the location is convenient. Highly recommended! We walked to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum, along scenic canals, for a lovely holiday.

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.
