Only view was over a car park but view at front of hotel not attractive either. Bedroom was fairly small but the...

The hotel is in a great location you can walk everywhere. The staff were very friendly and professional. The hotel itself is very nice and well kept and the rooms are modern and well finished. It is a very well run hotel. I would recommend it to anyone and can't wait to go back.

We have stayed at this hotel for several years and this year it was very uncomfortable. It is a small and very cramped place right in the middle of Amsterdam. The rooms are OK but the hallways are all coloured in dark purple and it is like being inside a purple womb. The restaurant is painfully cramped, and it is...

We had a very nice stay at The Albus in Amsterdam. The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect: you can walk everywhere, which is what we did. Lots of restaurants and shops (Kalverstraat) within walking distance. Slight negative: the hotel is very close to the Rembrandtplein, which can cause some noise in the evenings and mornings. The room was...
