We stayed at Sir Albert for 4 nights and I agree with the recent reviews that it is a great place to stay. It is on the fringe of the central city and so the location is little less frenetic than the centre, but it is a short walk or a tram ride into town. Also a new metro line station being built locally. Cannot say enough about how friendly and helpful all the staff are. Ask for a room away from the street. Trams rumbling past the front can be a bit noisy. Would recommend booking the breakfast. Good choice and good value. Don’t bother with the evening meal. Turn left out of the front door, wander along Albert Cuyp Straat and you will be spoilt for choice and price range. The street market during the day is interesting as well.
