My wife and I stay here for 2 days to explore Amsterdam. For that the hotel is located perfectly. All the must see things in Amsterdam is within 2-3 kilometers, so we walked everywhere. This is also a great way to so Amsterdam, so I can only recommend doing the same. But as other reviewers mention, it is not airconditioned... More

First the good: the location is perfect. Just around the corner from the flower market and close to everything. And the staff was very friendly, helpful and responsive to my requests for an iron, an umbrella, etc. Also the restaurant is incredible. But: without air condition the room was very stuffy and warm, even though this was not exactly high... More

Hello precious guest, Thank you very much for your compliments on our location, staff and Senses restaurant! I am very sorry to read that the heat disturbed your sleeping comfort. Since each year the summer seems to be warmer in Holland, we have decided to install air conditioning in all our hotelrooms before next summer. I hope that therefore we... More

Great staff, wonderful array of breakfast items and, at least for us, the location was central to all the things in Amsterdam we wanted to see on this trip. I picked this hotel at random and we hit the bull's eye with that pick. I will stay there with every trip to Amsterdam in the future. 5 Star staff, service... More

This is a very nice hotel! Modern, clean and extremely good service! Very good value for the money. Very central - located close to the flowermarket and Rembrandt plain. The room was small - but big enough. Very clean with good beds and a Nespresso machine. Nice bar and breakfast restaurant. Nice restaurants close by. Higly recommended!

My friends and I stayed here for a hen night. The staff were wonderful, allowed us to check all our things into one room, keep our bags the following day. Rooms were clean and modern, beds were very comfortable. The staff didn't even mind taking our photos a million times 🙈 Great location Would definitely come back and stay here... More

Me and my wife stayed at the Albus for a week this summer and loved the hotel! The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable, and are able to book tickets to many of the city attractions from the front desk in advance (saves a LOT of time waiting in lines). The rooms are modern and clean. The hotel is... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with a friend for 3 nights while exploring Amsterdam. We had booked a superior double room. When we arrived (which was after 3pm when check in starts), we were told the room was not yet ready. We sat and waited in the reception for around 15 minutes to be told that it still wasn't... More

This hotel is very modern and clean, our room was small but with a good sized bathroom and a balcony. The restaurant/breakfast area was pristine and all the staff were very friendly with good manners, the receptionists were very professional and helpful, we enjoyed our stay there.

Everyone at the reception desk most helpful and friendly. Nice size room for Europe. And location is the best for what we enjoy doing. Located across from the floating flower market, you can reach Rembrandtplein around the corner. A ten minute walk places you at the feet of the Rjjisk Museum. Ten minutes thru the walking street opens into Dam... More
