Sir Albert Hotel
Ranked #37 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam

Reviewed August 16, 2013

Great little hotel, I think it's a fairly new opening so I'd imagine it will rise up the rankings on Tripadvisor fairly quickly!
Both my partner and I work for a 5* boutique hotel group in London and so have high standards but from the minute we arrived the hospitality at Sir Albert was superb. I was especially impressed by the check-in process, speaking with my work hat on it was genuinely faultless! A lovely lady named Alex offered us a seat, a glass of bubbly and informed us of our room upgrade whilst we did the paperwork, she instantly recognised that having visited Amsterdam before we would be interested in seeing the more local, quirky side of the city away from the big tourist draws she gave us some great recommendations before showing us up to the bedroom herself.
I loved the decor in the room, especially the cow-hide desk chair and the matte black floorboards, beautiful.
The area is great, a short walk from Museumplein and 5-10 mins on the tram to downtown, although we walked everyday (about 25mins) the Albert Cuyp market is nearby, we found it more interesting as a people-watching destination rather than for shopping (try the Nine Streets for beautiful shops!) there are some good casual restaurants nearby. We tended to buy fruit and pastries from the local shops rather than opting for breakfast at the hotel. We also had a late dinner at The Butchers burger place down the road, burgers were amazing, the also deliver to the hotel. There is a bar through a secret door at the back of the restaurant which we managed to blag our way into after a tip off from a local but despite it being "exclusive" and needing a password to get in, we weren't overly impressed so we left fairly quickly.
Back to the hotel! We really did have a lovely stay, so thank you so much to all involved at Sir Albert, you have a fantastic product and I wish you all the best. You deserve to be known as one of THE places to stay in Amsterdam. I only hope you don't become so popular that we can't get a room when we next visit!
Oh, there are also bikes available to rent from the hotel, unfortunately we didn't discover this untill our last day and they were all in use so make sure you book in advance!

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a deluxe, I'd imagine that the standard (boutique) rooms are fairly small so...

Very comfortable hotel. The rooms are small with the quirky arrangement of having the wash basin in the main room. The monsoon shower is good and the beds are superb. We did not eat in the hotel. The main restaurant is Japanese which is not for us. However, we did note that it was always extremely busy so it must be good. There are a number of local restaurants and a walk towards the museums gives access to masses more. We liked De Knijp in the museum district and Mashua, a slightly longer walk towards the centre. For breakfast we walked down the road into the market, took the first right in the market, and there were a number of coffee bars and cafes.

The hotel is located slightly away from the main town but it is only a 20-25 minute walk to the centre and, for non-walkers, two tramlines go right past the hotel. Tickets can be bought on the tram. The museum district is a 10 minute stroll. We would recommend the Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum. Both sell e-tickets which mean you avoid the main queue. We would also recommend the canal boat trips from up by the Heineken museum. They give you a good introduction to the city and you can then plan where you want to go.

I was in A'dam with my boyfriend for 5 days and we stayed at Sir Albert. It is not inly the perfect place in terms of fornitures and atmosphere but also the location is perfect. It is in one of the most vibrant neightbourg: The Pjpe. 5 minutes walks to Museum district, 5 minutes walk to
Centre, it is very easy to reach and everyplace is easy reachable.
If i'll back to A'dam I'll be at Sir Albert.

Very good hotel. Smallish room but very luxurious. Lovely bed. Good coffee. Bring your own tea bags if English or Irish. Near all the best places. Buy a ticket for the trams as you will need it to get around.

I loved everything about this hotel! The nice staff, the modern interior design, the comfy bed, the service, the location - all of it! One of my best hotel experiences ever. Make sure to make it to the lovely saturday market close by and have some drinks at the hotel bar.

Stayed here for work over a 2 night stay. Arrived late and was greeted by an offer of Champagne or rose water at reception. I thought that was a nice touch and was told by my colleagues that they all got offered drinks at check in also. Receptionist walked up with me to take me through the room amenities. Rooms was not massive but well appointed. Bed was really comfortable. Ordered room service and was also very good. Would happily stay here again for work or pleasure

Stayed four nights in July 2013. Even though the booking was for one double room, gave us twin room. Upon protest moved to double room next day.
The light switches unreachable from bed. Every evening we had to ask for the AC to be turned ON which they turned off during the night making it very uncomfortable.
