great hotel! Close to the tram, many places to eat around, 5 minutes from Rembrant square and 10 minutes from Dam.
The rooms are great, clean...
The service at the reception was very good and helpful.

really good service, most of what you would want from a small, modern hotel. not exactly cheap though, would have been quite perfect if breakfast was included for the same price! would recommend for sure.

Room Tip: not the ones on the lower floor

Weekend get away with my work mates.
The Albus hotel is ideally located in the heart of the Centrum.
It is within a short walk to all tourist sights, bar and restaurants.
At the hotel, they offer free wi-fi, even though it is difficult to get a connection, an iPad at reception is available and free.
Free coffee machine in the room at at reception.
The room we stayed in was on 4th floor overlooking the main road. The bed was extremely comfy.
The reception staff is very attentive and pleasant.
I recommend it for a short break.

Room Tip: Any room might be good.

Having never been to Amsterdam we really did not know where we should stay. We chose the Albus after a friend had recommended it. What a great hotel! Easy walking distance to the museum district, Anne Frank house, red light district and restaurant and shopping. Rooms clean, comfortable and all the amenities that you could want. We needed to press our clothes after arriving and requested an iron and ironing board and was delivered in 5 minutes to our room. Helpful staff recommended where to eat and shop. They were bang on. Would stay there again when back in Amsterdam.

Very central. The staff were very friendly and gave good directions and advice about sight seeing and restaurants. We loved the room, not your standard square box, internet connection was excellent, English TV for when we had to rest our tired feet.The bar was a lovely social place for a nightcap. Felt safe walking around the area at night.
If I have to add a negative, the lift was slow!
