We considered the Radisson, Marriot, Hilton, Crowne Plaza etc, but I decided to take a chance with the Albus, an independent hotel. This gamble paid off, as it was a chic and fresh hotel with staff that made you feel very welcome. Myself and my Fiancé stayed in the Albus for three nights in January and paid 306 euros, as...

If you have a few days in Amsterdam, you would probably not spend a lot of time in your room but Albus makes you want to... Everything's comfortable and chic. Kudos for environmentalist concerns also.

The hotel is great, the staff very polite, and the nespresso machine in the room was perfect! They also offer free coffee all day long in the reception for all the guests, that is great! We had a room on the 8th floor, great room, nice view, no noise at all, but i'd love to have some bigger windows! will... More

Rooms are very new, comfortable and modern. Very well located (15 min walk from Amsterdam Centraal). Rooms are very well cleaned. There are free WIFI but at low speed (256 Kb). For higher speeds a fee must be paid. There are HD TV in the room but no HD free offer !!

My fiancé and I only arrived home yesterday after spending 2 great nights in Amsterdam staying at the Albus. What a fantastic hotel in a perfect location with the friendliest staff you could ask for :-) We arrived at 10am and there were rooms available but I had asked for a double bed and high floor so the lady said...

We stayed here over Christmas. Everything is still pretty new and modern. Had the basement level three bed room, which was fine - it IS small and has only a tiny high window, but it was dark until 9am anyway and we spent most of our time outside so that didnt bother us. The bathroom was fine for three adults... More

Dear valuable guest, Thank you for your kind review on Tripadvisor! It is very nice to read that you had a positive experience in one of our basement rooms. They do have exactly the same facilities as all other rooms and are perfect for small groups travelling with two or three. We will definetly consider your comment about a mirror... More

The Albus is not the best hotel in the city...but a great alternative for the expensive big/all inclusive hotels in the city ! For nightlife it is actually next door to the Rembrandt-square, Dam-square, Flowermarket, Shopping at Kalverstreet...is within 5 minutes walking. Cinema's, musea, pubs, all kind of restaurants...it's all there within a few minutes.

The Albus is a great hotel for seeing Amsterdam, in a convenient location for the local sites and bars. The hotel is very easy to find, being on a main street and very close to a tram stop. The check in process was easy and friendly. We had an upgraded room which suited very well. The bed was comfy and... More

My girlfriend and I spent two nights here and had a great time. The location is excellent - easy walk to bars, restaurants, cafes, shops, and tram stops. The flower market is right up the block (lots of souvenirs and shopping) and the hotel offers discounted tickets for a great canal tour. Our room was large and very modern. Comfortable... More
