The service was first classed. On arrival we were greeted with warm smiles and offered drinks. Whatever we asked for we basically got. Our room was cosy but maybe slightly dated but it was cleaned. The reception area and reception is very contemporary and soft lighting in communal areas. The location we felt was perfect and just moments from Dam Square, trams etc. I liked the staff, hotel, location and breakfast. A well-picked hotel and can not wait to do it all over again........

After much research we decided upon this hotel, and boy are we glad we did. We arrived much earlier and they checked us in right away, staff was incredibly helpful and location was grand. Will be back!

Picked this hotel for a recent trip to Amsterdam for a few days break. Very friendly 'boutique' type hotel but was clean, great value and very central. A few minutes walk from most of the major places with a really useful guide book in the lobby as well as an area with coffee, cold water and a concierge type service to help you plan, get tickets, book taxis etc. would definitely stay here again when visiting Amsterdam and the hotel restaurant was incredible. Go for the surprise 4 course menu and wait to see see what the chefs prepare...so good! 5 stars, couldn't fault it, all you could want and more for a short (or longer!) break in Amsterdam.

I enjoyed my stay in the Albus. It is on a main road but very quiet once inside the hotel. We had a balcony that was unexpected so that was a great bonus for enjoying a drink in the sun and relaxing. The hotel is perfectly situated for getting everywhere in central Amsterdam and I would recommend it. the breakfast was very nice, yoghurt, pancakes, fruit, bacon, croissants etc and the staff were friendly

My husband and I stayed at the hotel from the 27 until 30th of June. The hotel provided the room I initially requested, high floor and facing the garden, as it is quieter.the room was really hotel, and a fan was provided, however the fan was really noisy and therefore we couldn't keep it on at night. The room didn't have a small fridge, however the coffee machine was a nice touch! The hotel is well situated and not far from the major attractions.the staff is very helpful and polite

We stayed here in April. We had a room with a double bed and a single bed. the room was well designed and very clean. The staff were all very helpful and we had a lovely stay. The only downside was the wait for breakfast one day was about 45 minutes (waiting for food to be cooked) and when the food was available we were told breakfast time was nearly over so had to rush and eat fast. Also for a buffet breakfast we felt €24 was a little overpriced.
Over all a great stay and we would stay again, just perhaps have breakfast elsewhere.

We enjoyed our stay. The room and breakfast were enjoyable. My only disappointment was with the shower head. It dripped like a gentle rain. Also the parking for our van was far away and difficult. It took 45 minutes to retrieve the van for checkout. The front desk staff were excellent and cheerful. The room tea service was nice.
