The Albus is a nice hotel, clean, very good service, very friendly with an excellent location. Room was good, comfortable bed, clean, good heating, very comfortable. Only complaint is the bathroom is a bit old and could use some minor maintenance, and there was a funny smell on the hall outside the room. Nothing to complain about. Aside from that...

I can recommend Albus. I have stayed there many times. Very good location, close to Rembrantplein, Rokin Street. They also offer one free refreshment. Even though the Vijzelstraat is a busy street, the rooms conceal the noise. Reasonable Price. Would visit there again.
