This was my first stay for 6 nights - we were offered a choice between an apartment and a hotel room, but we chose the hotel room - the only negative was the size of the room, it was too small for such a long stay - the huge positive was the excellent staff - they helped with the tram... More

Stayed here for a weekend in Amsterdam. Absolutely lovely hotel with free wi fi, extremely comfortable beds and spacious en suite. Quite a walk from city centre and we found it a bit difficult to find at first!! So make sure you have the address and telephone number for the hotel handy!! Really quiet rooms, not massive in size but... More

The room was pretty fresh, like it was just built. With great decor and comfortable space and bed. Good location, near a lot of pubs, and very helpful staff. Would definitely stay again! Wi-fi worked really good, that's a plus!

I have stayed at The Albus many times before and the staff has always been lovely. They provide a great welcome and always manage to give me the best price even when booking on the door. The rooms are designed well, clean and there are many channels to pick from on the tv. I would highly recommend this place as... More

Central location and friendly staff made our stay really enjoyable - staff go out of their way to help and advise. Room was well maintained and clean - would have liked a kettle though (coffee machine was provided)

Just returned from the Albus. Had a lovely break and Amsterdam is fab. Hotel very comfortable and rooms clean and cozy. Just one thing if you are planning on going ask for a room at the back of the hotel. Our first night was at the front on the first floor. The noise from the road was horrendous it even... More

The first thing I noticed from the moment I walked in was the superior service. The staff was extremely friendly, outgoing and helpful. The rooms were a bit small, but overall it was a great experience. Good location as well.

A "cool" modern look, with a "warm" and friendly staff. Love the mood lighting in the room. Very helpful with advice, directions, assistance. It was perfect for a combo business trip and great location to walk anywhere in the city.

Be warned, you'll be offered a seat in reception whilst they get around to checking you in, would you like a drink whilst you're waiting - careful, it'll be added to your room charge. Only reason we could see for slow check-in was to raise income! Dark purple corridors don't make it a boutique hotel, room cramped and plain.

We want our guests to have a relaxed experience after traveling to the hotel. I'm sorry to read that it was unclear for you that we do charge an amount for... More
