Great Hotel Feb 2013

This hotel is in the perfect spot, everything is close. Staff was great very helpful and polite as can be. Helped us with our cabs and directions for any place we needed. We stayed in room 408 ,it was in the back of the hotel overlooking a court yard. Very nice bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. The staff also welcomed us with champagne for 2 when we arrived. There was a slip up between this site and the hotel with the room we were given the first night, I smoke so we arranged to have a balcony and the room that was reserved didn't have 1 and all of them were booked that night. Next day they moved us to 408 and comp'd us drinks at the bar for the mess up and I had my balcony to smoke on with a nice bench overlooking the courtyard. Overall a great place to stay our room was very nice and clean, staff was friendly, staff was multilingual , and made us feel at home . We plan to stay again.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Rembrandt square is 100 yards from the hotel there is everything there you could ever want to do, clubs, bars, restaurants, and one of the best sights in the city is right in the middle of the square.

Long weekend

Amazing time in Amsterdam, our booking was slightly disrupted on arrival as they could not find a record of it. Put us up in a double room for the night then moved us the next day. Staff could not do enough to help us our entire stay, Friendly and polite. Couldn't ask for more.

Good location, Lacks AC and other amenities

The location is good, close to Rembrantplein, not a far walk from Central Station or Museumplein. It is hard with a 2pm or later check in coming from the US, flights land early morning. The room had no AC! and the room felt like it was in the 90s, really hard to sleep. The room was smaller than many New York City and other European hotel rooms I have stayed in. The water pressure was not great and the bathroom was very dark. I would not recommend the hotel, there are a ton of hotels in Amsterdam, there has to be something better out there.

first time A-dam

I booked this hotel for my wife and her friend, they loved the hotel and the staff were top notch, the breakfast buffet was a little pricey @19 euro but they went at the last minute (my wifes fault) so it was hard to rate the buffet on value. The staff however were very nice and understanding and still made my wife and her friend eggs after they had closed.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Give yourself more than a few days, the lines were long and they missed allot due to the short duration of their trip.

Great stay at Albus hotel!

Great location, 15 min or under to walk to all museums and other attractions, very close to a great number of restaurants. Wonderful, helpful staff, rooms on the small side, but comfortable nonetheless, very clean. We bought tickets to all attractions in the hotel , sometimes at a discount , but more importantly - avoided the tickets lines at some of the museums. Overall- great experience.

Great weekend

The Albus hotel was located just around the corner from the bars. Within walking distance of Madame Tussauds and many other attractions. The staff at the hotel were very helpful. The only downside was the breakfast, not really worth the money.
