Very nice hotel in a really nice location. Only downside is that it gets very hot at night in your room. I would stay again.

Great location, small space

We only spent 1 night at this hotel, so it was perfect for what it was: great location, nice staff, clean rooms, and complimentary coffee & WiFi. This was my first time staying at a hotel in Amsterdam, so I am not sure how other hotels differ, but the standard room size at the Albus was very, very small. If you're planning on spending time in the room, I'd suggest upgrading or looking for a different hotel.

Get breakfast or a snack from the grocery store just a few blocks away. This will save you money, and you'll notice locals doing the exact same thing.

Everything was great except no AC

The staff was great and super friendly and helpful. It was in a great location and were nice rooms and everything but the one elevator was super slow (not a big deal) and there was no AC and it was the summer. They did have a couple fans in the closet though. Otherwise the hotel was very nice. I would go there again but not in the summer months.

Perfect spot for the active traveler

Located about a 7 minute tram ride from the train station. They upgraded me to a suite. I'm not sure why, but I couldn't complain. Everything was modern and clean. The bed was comfortable. The TV gave you the choice to watch in several language, including English. There's a great outdoor square right around the corner, where I enjoyed a nice steak and a Pint. Great Indonesian restaurant called Indrapura just down the street. Great Rijstoffel.

Best staff anywhere

This is a lovely, comfortable and attractive hotel, with decent amenities, a nice restaurant and sitting area and it is well situated directly opposite the floating Flower Market. But what lifts it above is the staff. They are friendly, hard working and will go above and beyond to make your stay happy and comfortable. My luggage was left behind by BA and the staff chased it until it arrived with me. They made this holiday for us.

Use the trams - they are invaluable for getting around, easy to use and the drivers and passengers are really helpful.

Great Location and Helpful Staff

Cannot beat the location and the staff was very helpful in setting up tours for museums and canal rides. Small but clean room. No A/C but had a fan that helped keep the room cool. We would stay again.

Albus on Kings Day

Great boutique hotel in central Amsterdam. Very close to shops and main hub of city. The hotel is very modern and funky. The rooms are good, reasonable size (that we had) and the beds are sooooo comfortable. However the rooms can be so hot and are crying out for air conditioning or a significant fan. The staff were absolutely brilliant; really friendly and up for a laugh. They really were helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was good but somewhat chaotic with the waitress having no idea who ordered what (coffee). We actually went for King's Day celebrations so we knew what noise to expect. Other guests didn't know and complained about the fact there were about a million people roaming the streets all day in celebration. Good advice....check before you book....Kings Day is VERY noisy in Amsterdam!

A mighty fine staff and a location that can't be beat!

The Albus is a quaint little hotel. Don't let the sexy advertising sway you one way or another, it is an excellent place to stay with a family and my two daughters and I enjoyed our 8 nights there. Our room was large with a king sized bed on one side and another bed under the eaves for one of the girls. We had a large balcony overlooking the houses/gardens towards the back of the hotel (this might be the only room, however, with a balcony) and brilliant sunlight (I guess that does exist in Holland) flooded the room daily from a large bank of windows. The staff was amazingly helpful, friendly and funny. The location of the Albus can't be beat. There are tram stops a block away and the hotel is centrally located between two canals, within walking distance to museums but not in the middle of the hub-bub of such a bustling city. We were more than pleased with our stay at the Albus!

Brilliant location versus traffic

Hotel location is perfect. Very central and easily reached from Schipol airport by public transport. Staff were fabulous and very attentive to guests and apologetic when things weren't quite right, like a noisy first floor room at front on first night ( which was rectified to some extent on 2nd night by move to 8th floor) but unfortunately the lift was out of order next day and the boiler room is located on that floor so whilst room was quieter it was very warm. No air conditioning is definite disadvantage. Don't stay here if you want a quiet stay. (Ear plugs are provided)
