This hotel is in a great location. The room was large by Amsterdam standards, clean and quiet. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The beds were super comfortable and provided my best sleep the entire trip. This was a very pleasant ending to my 2 week trip.

The Albus prides itself on being an art hotel, and certainly can lay claim to the honor. Located on Vijzelstraat near Herrengracht it is in a great location, with the exterior noise that accompanies a great location. The room was beautiful , with lovely art, and a bathtub/shower that had both a rain shower and a hand piece which could... More
