Great little hotel close to good cafes, restaurants, canal tour providers, central railway and key attractions such as Anne Frank House. Excellent breakfasts and beautiful courtyard garden which is wonderful for relaxation and a glass of red wine. Great value for money.
I travel a lot and have stayed at a range of hotels. This is one of the best. A level of service that rivals Ritz Carlton - certainly warmer and more attentive. Every employee seemed engaged, focused, and very responsive
Hotel rooms are small and have almost everything you want apart from a tea/coffee tray. Room overlooking Rembrandtplein was a little noisy at night but not too bad. Noises inside the hotel were minimal, other than when people walked past the room. Food in the restaurant was good. You pay for the location - it was a little expensive but you're right in the middle of it.
A good location for sightseeing although you may want somewhere closer to the red light district/station and surrounding areas if that is where you intend to spend most of your time. It was quite a walk to these areas.
However the hotel is very nice and well decorated and the rooms are well fitted out. We did not use the restaurant but the bar area was very nice for a drink at the end of the day. The staff were all welcoming and helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Albus Hotel, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The only down fall was that although we had asked for a quiet room when booking (following reading other peoples reviews) we were on the 5th floor (room 504) which looks out to the front of the building - it can be a little noisy at night, but the hotel do provide ear plugs and that is expected in such a central location..
The classic Amsterdam image of stately canals, the Canal Loop is principally the Herengracht and Keizersgracht, lined with gracious tall 17th and 18th-century houses. Some of these are now museums, most notably the eccentric Kattenkabinet. The Amstel is a more down-to-earth waterway, lined with houseboats and famous for its classic much–photographed Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge). The floating Flower Market is also a much-loved canal feature.
