My wife and I stayed at The Albus on 4/21 and 4/22. While I would echo the thoughts of some that the rooms are a bit small, I would counter that with the fact that you are rarely in your room so don't let tht stop you from staying there. It is pretty typical of most hotel rooms in Europe. What really makes this place is the wonderful staff. They were extremely responsive to any/all requests. I want to specifically call out Veron and Sofia. They were both incredibly helpful and always smiling and upbeat. Whether it is giving directions to the best places to see/dine, helping to arrange tickets for transportation in town or outside of town or just making polite conversation, these ladies are gems. The Albus is very fortunate to have them on their team!
In terms of the location of the hotel, it is a bit far from the center of the town but I think that was really nice. The area is quiet by comparison to other part of the city. Trams to the center of town are frequent and cheap. It is also not a terrible walk to any of the attractions that you might want to see. This makes the location was a plus in my book.
If you are going to Amsterdam and want to be away from the craziness of th center of the city and you are looking for a staff that goes above and beyond to make your stay the best that it can possibly be, then this is the place for you. We would stay there again without reservation.
