“Very Enjoyable Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay at the Sir Albert. Staff service was impeccable and its strategic location near the Albert Cuyp Market, a tram line, and walking distance of the Rijks Museum and Van Gogh Museum was also highly desirable. Our room was large by European standards. We also appreciated the free wifi. The breakfast was good though high priced for American standards. Strongly recommend.

Selected by travel agent, but great choice in museum district. Very accommodating staff. Good recommendations for dinner. Front desk person by the name of Jop was very helpful, but so was everyone else. No request was a problem.

Room Tip: Canal view room smaller than street view

Great hotel! The location is a very short walk to 2 different tram stops. It's a short tram ride to the Central part of the city and we just loved the area right around the hotel. You have the market and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The staff's attention to detail and sense of urgency was awesome!!! We were greeted with cucumber water & a glass of Prosecco and then escorted to our room which was small but very nice. They walked us through all the technology and we felt at home.

The Wi-Fi was fast and supported all of our technology. Even though we had the do not disturb light on until later in the day every time we came back the room it was always refreshed. Also every time we ran into the staff we were greeted with a warm hello or a bright smile. This is a great hotel to stay in and I would stay here again.

Great hotel. Fantastic location. Rooms are quite small but really well done and very comfortable beds and linen. Nice touches including a turn-down service in the evening with little messages stuck to the mirror. Very busy restaurant downstairs so the atmosphere is very vibrant. All in all highly recommend this one.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor have lovely skylights that open and great views.

Writing a review of Sir Albert Hotel is all about striking the right balance: Expectations vs the actual experience, ambitions vs execution, ... it's of course subjective, so please have this in mind in the further.

I won't say too much about the design and styling of the hotel, except that it's extremely masculine, dark and sort of brutal. The small "study" in the lobby is a nice place to hang, in particularly in the evening when the lively Izakaya can be a notch too loud. Speaking of that, the Izakaya is a major asset to this place, both for its lovely food and for the vibe that it brings to the place. It's a really cool place!

So why the somewhat lukewarm feedback from us? It's the small stuff that in a way undermines the whole concept of boutique hotels, namely the extra service, the attention to detail and the "extra touch". Some examples: When you are introduced to your room, the coffee machine is demonstrated and explained, but come coffee time, there are only two capsules there (for two persons in a suite - that's just cheap). You are explained that the "Do not disturb" sign - unlike in other places - are strictly respected so that you need to remember to switch it off in order to have your room cleaned, only to experience that this is definitely not so (while attending to private business, if you catch the drift...). The breakfast in the otherwise lovely Izakaya is nice, but has a very limited selection, a buffet that runs out of food all the time, and a smiling (and informal and really nice) but surprisingly inefficient staff taking orders for eggs (impressive eggs menu!) and tea/coffee. AND it costs a whopping 25 EUR (a bit less if you pre-order).

But the room that we had is nice, albeit a tad bit "über-designed", the cleaning flawless, the beds fine and the linen supersmooth. You'd expect some noise from the Izakaya or even the tramway outside, but no. The location is also superb for museum-hopping, and it is conveniently located 1 minute away from the nearest tramway stop, so you can get anywhere within the city as easy as pie.

So in short, a really nice stay, but not entirely as expected, which is of course mostly on us, and not entirely as promised, which is something that Sir Albert should work on. But I will be happy to recommend this place nonetheless, all things considered!

Room Tip: Seeing as the suite was not much bigger than an average room elsewhere, I'd guess that I'd r...

This hotel was superb. The location was great being close to a tram stop. The decor was very trendy. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was very quiet and the bed was large and comfortable. The bar on the ground floor serves delicious buffet breakfast in the morning and decent cocktails and sushi in the evening. Would love yo stay again next time I'm in Amsterdam.
