“Perfect service on perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The Albus hotel in Amsterdam is a very fresh looking and luxury hotel. I had a perfect stay as a business traveler.
The location is perfect in the centre of the city. The service is oustanding. The staff is very friendly and intrested.
I will absolutely recomend this hotel to friends and colleagues!

Right in the heart of Amsterdam. Stayed three nights, room beautiful and clean, when I arrived they put a complimentary drink token on the bed, staff friendly and helpful, everything you want, fabulous. Some adult pictures on the narrow corridors may be inappropriate if you have children.

Room Tip: My room was bigger than my friends, they all seem to be different but really comfortable, the staff...

We stayed here for my sisters birthday and found it perfect for what we needed. A short walk from the centre of town, good rooms, if on the small side, and very helpful staff. The food seemed very expensive in the silks bistro so we didn't choose to eat in there. Tea and coffee available in reception 24 hours a day which was great. We would definitely stay here again!

Before we stay in the Hotel, they began to pamper us via twitter, then when we arrived to the people was very kind and helpful, they gave us a present and everything that we ask for they gave it to us. Very good service, clean, and location, we just didn't get to know and taste the restaurant but I hope we go back very soon to get to taste it!
thanks for Everything
Manuel

In the heart of Amsterdam, close to railway station, and all important things in downtown Albus hotel is good solution for busy traveler.
Hotel is situated in typical Amsterdam house (narrow and tall) but inside is completely new and modern. Personnel are friendly and the hotel seem very clean.
Possible problems: In the hotel is only one elevator, restaurant is small and in the morning "rush hour" maybe you will have to wait before entering to breakfast. Also my room was very small- if you open bathroom and closet you can't walk around.
Suggestion- coffee machine and coffee which can be found in the room are great! Don’t miss espresso in your bed.
