We spent 3 nights in the Albus hotel in the heart of Amsterdam and it was awesome. Our room was great, with a perfect bed (we slept so well we would love to know the brand of the mattress!) and we had an awesome stay. The breakfast, served in the restaurant The Senses, is yummy as well. You have starters and then you can chose between 4 meals (waffle, pancakes, croque-madame and I forgot the last one...). Really, we had a nice stay in Amsterdam mostly because we could visit the city by feet.

the Albus I only discovered recently but every stay since has been excellent. the location is perfect, in the middle of the centre with tram stop 24 literally in front of the door. the staff is very helpful and genuinely friendly without the usual hotel cliché attitude. rooms are comfortable and I especially like their studios. still need to try the restaurant but breakfast is good as is the bar.

The Albus is the perfect hotel for us. Great location at the heart of Amsterdam, with easy access to every iconic and cultural treasure of the beautiful and historic city. The price is very reasonable, especially with the courteous, helpful and responsive staff who finds solution to your every need. The place itself (we stayed in two of their studios for a year during the pandemic!) is very convenient with all the amenities you need. Immaculately clean and spacious. Great place to just relax after a day of exploring Amsterdam and/or after a day's work. The covid-related sanitation was also excellent.
