I was last here in 2007 and wrote a glowing review of the Albus. Nothing has changed...nothing has changed for decades. The hotel itself is wonderfully located within EASY walking distance to the floating flower gardens, Rembrandt Plein (Plaza), restaurants, bakeries, pharmacy, shops, etc. These shops are about 2 to 3 blocks away...far enough that the noise and crowds are...

The Albus was a great hotel right in the middle of the city. Very modern, clean and chic. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely come back and stay at the Albus in Amsterdam on my next trip.

The hotel is on a somewhat busy street, so be sure to ask for a room facing the other way if this bothers you (was... More

Fun boutique hotel in a good location. It's centrally located and in walking distance to many things. Lots of restaurants and happenings near by. Reception staff is friendly and helpful. Free WiFi, albeit not the fastest. Rooms are comfortable and modern.

You couldn't ask for more from this gem of a hotel! It is well located on the tram line to Centraal Station and is well located close to Rembrantplein and the flower market. Lots of great restaurants close by. The rooms are large and comfortable. The wifi is free (although a little slow). The shower is wonderful and the bathroom... More

We have just spent the weekend at The Albus. Our group consisted of eleven ladies from England. The location was excellent, everywhere within walking distance and trams and boats close by. The reception staff extremely friendly and informative, the rooms were modern, the beds really comfortable and free use of the safes in our rooms. The bar staff couldn't have... More

We loved staying here. We had a room that overlooked Vijzelstraat and so we had a fantastic view of the street. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. From here, we were able to walk to the canal hop on hop off boats as well as the Rijkmuseum. It was only about a 10-15 minute walk. Also,... More

We were met by a really friendly trainee who couldn't have been more helpful. We were quickly checked in, and led to our room. The room was at the rear of the hotel and was blissfully quiet compared to the hustle and bustle just outside. The room was very modern with an interactive web TV, safe and coffee machine (take...

We stayed here on a whim when visiting Amsterdam for the weekend. Although small, the rooms were very tranquil, clean and modern. The location, for us, was great--there is a lively square around the corner, but the room was still quiet at night. A great flower market was just a few blocks away. We don't mind walking, so a trip... More

The Albus is very well taken care of. We found our room to be comfortable and nicely decorated. The hotel location is very good and easy to get around from on foot. I am a light sleeper and found it to be quiet at night. The staff were all helpful and professional. We did not eat at the restaurant as... More
