Just checked out of the Albus, and have to say it exceeded my expectations. Location is central, and the hotel is surprisingly smart, with a cosy wine bar in the reception, spotless new rooms and huge rain showers in the bathrooms. Ours was a small room on the back of the 4th floor and was very quiet at night. Staff were helpful, and they have booklets with staff recommendations of what to see and do in Amsterdam that were really personal. There is a bike rental shop just around the corner on Reguliersdwarsstraat, or alternatively you can walk everywhere from here. For the very reasonable price (booked with BA avios points) I was expecting something a lot more basic, so was pleasantly surprised to find it was cosy, comfortable, smart and ideal for a city break.
