One girl of the staff made it possible to put us on the VIP list of Jimmy Woo Club. Very happy about this! Nice amenities, breakfast can be... More

Perfect location for exploring Amsterdam, tram stop just down the road. Family room was perfect for the four of us, although the sofa bed was not quite big enough for two children, but they did bring up an extra bed. Very friendly staff who made a fuss of our children and especially in the restaurant when their food was as... More

Overall very pleased with the Albus. Very helpful staff, rooms not huge but very nice. Good sized bathroom, nice amenities, totally comfortable. Restaurant was over priced, especially for breakfast. My only complaint about the facilities was that the room was too warm and the only way to cool it down was to open a window. This of course let the... More

The Albus is a slightly unasuming hotel on 8 floors. About a mile from the station and red light district, it is still in the middle of shops and restaurants with trams passing the door. The place is modern with very slick decor. The rooms were well kitted out with high quality furniture and furnishings. We had a great triple... More

Chic design, very comfortable bed, rain shower and right in the middle of town between the flower market and Rembrandtplein. Breakfast is great, but a bit pricey. I would definitely return to this hotel.
