My boyfriend and I did the bubbles and bubbles package and everything was 10/10. Our highlight was Senses restaurant (an experience) and the welcoming and helpful staff. We most definitely recommend staying here!

We spent the night at the Hotel so we could dine at Senses restaurant - food is amazing! Hotel was very quiet due to Covid and was following all the necessary restrictions. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was great. Rooms clean and functional for a city centre hotel. I would definitely recommend. Thanks to the team!

Stayed here 2 nights with my while exploring the beautiful city of Amsterdam. We had a king room on the 3rd floor.Room was clean, stylish with a very comfortable bed and coffee machine. Hotel is quite, clean and nicely decorated throughout and all the staff were as friendly as you like while leaving or entering the hotel. The location is perfect, you’re within 15 minutes walk to most attractions. Plenty of good restaurants nearby too! My wife was arriving earlier than me as I was working late but it wasn’t a problem for Patricia who took very good care of her before my late arrival. I’d definitely recommend staying here while in Amsterdam and I’ll be back for sure. Good job Albus!
