“Great for a city break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Very comfortable hotel. The rooms are small with the quirky arrangement of having the wash basin in the main room. The monsoon shower is good and the beds are superb. We did not eat in the hotel. The main restaurant is Japanese which is not for us. However, we did note that it was always extremely busy so it must be good. There are a number of local restaurants and a walk towards the museums gives access to masses more. We liked De Knijp in the museum district and Mashua, a slightly longer walk towards the centre. For breakfast we walked down the road into the market, took the first right in the market, and there were a number of coffee bars and cafes.

The hotel is located slightly away from the main town but it is only a 20-25 minute walk to the centre and, for non-walkers, two tramlines go right past the hotel. Tickets can be bought on the tram. The museum district is a 10 minute stroll. We would recommend the Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum. Both sell e-tickets which mean you avoid the main queue. We would also recommend the canal boat trips from up by the Heineken museum. They give you a good introduction to the city and you can then plan where you want to go.

I was in A'dam with my boyfriend for 5 days and we stayed at Sir Albert. It is not inly the perfect place in terms of fornitures and atmosphere but also the location is perfect. It is in one of the most vibrant neightbourg: The Pjpe. 5 minutes walks to Museum district, 5 minutes walk to
Centre, it is very easy to reach and everyplace is easy reachable.
If i'll back to A'dam I'll be at Sir Albert.

Very good hotel. Smallish room but very luxurious. Lovely bed. Good coffee. Bring your own tea bags if English or Irish. Near all the best places. Buy a ticket for the trams as you will need it to get around.

I loved everything about this hotel! The nice staff, the modern interior design, the comfy bed, the service, the location - all of it! One of my best hotel experiences ever. Make sure to make it to the lovely saturday market close by and have some drinks at the hotel bar.

Stayed here for work over a 2 night stay. Arrived late and was greeted by an offer of Champagne or rose water at reception. I thought that was a nice touch and was told by my colleagues that they all got offered drinks at check in also. Receptionist walked up with me to take me through the room amenities. Rooms was not massive but well appointed. Bed was really comfortable. Ordered room service and was also very good. Would happily stay here again for work or pleasure

Stayed four nights in July 2013. Even though the booking was for one double room, gave us twin room. Upon protest moved to double room next day.
The light switches unreachable from bed. Every evening we had to ask for the AC to be turned ON which they turned off during the night making it very uncomfortable.

“Prior to this trip, my husband and I had both been to Amsterdam a handful of times, only using it as a lively thoroughfare between other trips through Europe. Intent upon exploring the city's art and dining scenes, the main draw of the Sir Albert hotel was its close proximity to the culturally rich Leidseplein and Museumplein. I was looking forward to our unique digs, but given that it’s classified as a “boutique” hotel, I was picturing some a somewhat cramped, albeit chic, quarters.
But: not only did the award-winning BK Architects do a fantastic job of making it feel comfortably spacious, they even incorporated quirky, nuanced décor that added character without simply overcrowding the space. My husband particularly loved reading in the communal study, although reading is by no means the only thing to do there, with light food and a sophisticated social scene to enjoy as well. We balked at the pricey IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, but having heard so many positive things about it we had to give it a shot, and we were glad we did! Its innovative food and drink, along with a terrace providing a scenic view of the city, were well worth the money. The same can be said for the Sir Albert altogether; this is a truly special spot, and you get what you pay for in one of Amsterdam’s newest gems.”
