Amsterdam Albus Hotel Break

We used this hotel for a few days break in Amsterdam and its a very nice looking hotel, and the staff were very good indeed and couldnt fault them at all. The one massive downfall was the hotel did not have any air conditioning and it was very hot and stuffy in the rooms, we asked to be changed fron the first room given as it was in the basement which was extremely hot and the windows opened up into a greenhouse and not outside air. The second room was better as the windows did open to outside air however we were on the main road and it was extremely noisy indeed. We were given ear plugs by the hotel so i should have clicked on and they did work to a degree but could still hear the noise fron the busy road. Overall i would recommend this hotel for location and quality of staff and decor but must be aware of the lack of air con in summer months.

Nice hotel / Excellent location

Excellent boutique hotel in excellent location. Will stay again if return to Amsterdam. The hotel is located within walking distance of train station and almost all the major sightseeing spots. the room was clean, modern and small but normal size for Europe :) If you travel in summer be aware that the hotel does not have air conditioning.

A nice modern hotel

The hotel is modern, in a great location, the staff are friendly, and the rooms are nice. The only downside was the temperature of the room as there is no air conditioning. Whilst they did provide a tower fan, it was still a little too warm for optimum comfort at night.

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.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from 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.

Wonderful Weekend Break

Fantastic experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. We had use of a pod coffee machine in our room which was replenished daily as well as having free coffee in the reception area. The hotel location was perfect for us. All in all a great stay and we would go back.
