Stayed at the Albus earlier in April. Really lovely place, great location, all museums and shops nearby. Even on walking distance, staff helped us showing all hot spots on the citymap! So they made it very easy for us to visit all interesting places in a few days. Rooms have gone through a nice renovation, as one of the receptionists...

After a long transatlantic flight, it was so nice being helped by Veronique at the front desk. She was very gracious and patient with my sleepy husband and my friend. What a friendly person! And Ilona promptly brought us some nice tea so we could rest and rejuvenate in the lobby. Thank you Ilona! If your plane arrives before check...

This is a great modern hotel in a fab location. Upon arrival, we were offered tea, coffee or champagne! Its just a stones throw from the flower market and around the corner you have Rembrandtplein where there are loads of bars and restaurants to choose from, there is also a strip of restaurants across the street so plenty of choice....

Stayed here for only one night. Our hotel room was small and a little basic. But it was clean with a decent shower. The location is convenient and the reception staff are friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. Not a bad hotel.

The Albus staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was perfect for two adults and a child. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. It's around the corner from the Bloemenmarkt and a quick tram ride (1, 2 or 5) from Centraal Station.

Been at hotel since 12:00 our room still not ready and it's now 17:00. I am registered disabled need to rest and can see other guests arriving at hotel being allocated their room. Plenty of hotels to choose from in Amsterdam so avoid this one at all cost.

Great hotel, very centrally located. Beautiful room, ask for a room facing the backyard as you will get a beautiful view and quietness :-) Only issue was to understand how to switch off the light in the bathroom?! Breakfast was also very good - I definitely recommend staying there!
