“Well designed rooms and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We have just returned back to the UK after a three night stay at the Sir Albert. Staff were all very helpful and friendly and nothing too much trouble.
Rooms are very well designed. The bed was exceptionally comfy with pillows to sink into.
We noticed other people had commented on the cost of the breakfast 25 euros p.p. We didn't eat breakfast, as wanted a lighter option. Would be great if they introduced this.
We would definitely return to this hotel.

This is a wonderful hotel in a lovely location in an interesting part of the city away from the main busy tourist areas but a short walk from the museum area and a very pleasant 20 min walk into city centre. Great being near to an interesting market with some nice bars and cafes. Very helpful and friendly staff, highest quality modern hotel I have been in for some time. Will return.

Smart and trendy, most comfortable beds, modern plumbing, attentive staff and helpful advice on the city. Good for local cafes, and the hotel lent us their bicycles to explore. A short walk from Museums, Definition of boutique is dark corridors and no carpet, but robes, slippers, nice toiletries and fancy espresso machine thrown in.

Room Tip: You could hear the trams at the front, maybe choose the back.

It is certainly quite different from the standard city hotel with an unusual bedroom layout which includes the wash basin adjacent to the bed. Like most other reviewers I have to agree the bed and pillows are superb, and was pleased our well equipped room included an expresso machine as well as a kettle. I cannot say I warmed to the rather morbid colour scheme and lack of effective lighting in the bedroom.
The location is excellent, being on two tram routes, away from the central tourist zone and close to the museum quarter and Albert Cuypstraat Market (off which on Van der Helstraat are several good cafes for breakfast or lunch).
You can rent bikes at Halfords just along the street for 10 euros a day - a must for getting about in Amsterdam!

We booked this hotel as part of a flights / hotel package offered by Secret Escapes and from our first contact with them by email prior to arrival the hotel staff came over as welcoming and accommodating.

There was no problem dropping off our bags early morning, which meant that we could explore Amsterdam without hauling luggage about before the room was ready at 14:00. Sir Albert is on two direct tram routes from the central station, #'s 16 & 24. If arriving by tram walk in the direction of the departing tram, not back into the Albert Cuyp market, and the hotel is on the left before the canal.

The room itself was very comfortable, air conditioned, equipped with a wide screen TV and Bluetooth radio, a safe, ironing and coffee making facilities. Although Albert Cuyp market is a major tourist destination, being at the far end of the street means that the majority do not venture down as far as the hotel despite the “coffeeshop” opposite. The location was very quiet; there are no churches with their bells pealing every hour and the neighbourhood felt safe.

We were there for 3 nights (arrived Saturday, departed Tuesday) and we didn’t have breakfast at the hotel as the local bakeries and patisseries were too inviting, or try the restaurant but it appeared to be very busy each evening.

The hotel is located on the western edge of De Pijp, within easy walking distance of the Rijksmuseum, van Gogh exhibition and Cafe Loetje (go there if you love a good steak). Dam Square is about 10 minutes by tram and it took us about 20 minutes to get to Anne Frank house.

Room Tip: There was no road noise in our room at the back of the hotel.

My fiancee booked for us to spend two nights at The Sir Albert Hotel for my birthday. What a great hotel she picked. The hotel was in a great location on Albert Cuypstraat between Amsterdams famous market and the museum area. The hotel only opened in January and is absolutely amazing inside with no expense spared on its contemporary decor. The rooms are compact as is most of Amsterdam but extremely elegant.

We got a great deal through last minute which a fraction of the price that we would have paid had we gone through the hotel directly.

I would defiantley recommend this hotel as a couple stay, business or friends away on a trip. Will be back!
