We arrived at the Albus and were greeted by reception staff who were welcoming and friendly. It was somewhat confusing as the reception staff asked us to sit in the lobby while they were checking us in. It went smoothly but the communication could have been better however, the person checking us in was in training. He did a good job. It was an incredibly hot and humid day, we had traveled all night and were looking forward to getting into our room to take a break. The rooms were very nice, the beds were really comfy and the pillows were awesome!! We LOVED the rooms, they were clean, not overly big but plenty of room. My one complaint is that there is NO air conditioning. Even with the windows open and two fans, it was miserably hot. Maybe it's an American thing but even a window unit would be better than nothing. There was no ventilation. All in all, the only reason I'm not giving a 5 is because of no air. Coffee bar in reception was great, Nespresso machines in the rooms were a nice touch. For extended trips, Dutch Dry cleaners is right next door, take your clothes to them for wash, dry and fold vs. giving it to the hotel to take it, it's much,much cheaper! I would totally stay here again.
