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!
