  • Getting up close and personal with masterpieces by Rembrandt and Van Gogh at the city’s museums

Overview

A trendy design hotel in Amsterdam’s gorgeous Canal Belt, perfectly located right in the heart of the city

The Lowdown

Embrace all that Amsterdam has to offer with this hip hotel in the heart of the city’s Canal Belt. Located just a short stroll from Dam Square, Rembrandt Square and some of Amsterdam’s best museums, The Albus will make sure you get the most out of this picturesque city. Spend your time here exploring leafy canal paths, cozy cafés, world-famous art galleries and the hip, laid-back culture of Amsterdam, Holland’s super-cool capital.
Back at the hotel, you’ll find modern interiors with brightly colored furnishings, vibrant hues and all the mod cons you could ask for. You can rest up with a cocktail or two in the lively bar, before exploring a menu inspired by the five senses at the hotel’s restaurant (named among Amsterdam’s top 20 restaurants on TripAdvisor). So whether you’re here to marvel at the fine art, rent a bike and cruise with the locals, or even explore the infamous red-light district, your hip home-away-from home has you covered.

Rooms

With garden or street views, the aptly named Splendid City rooms are all about comfort, with plush beds, oversized pillows, 32-in. HDTVs and en-suite bathrooms that feature bathtubs or refreshing rain showers.

Dining

The hip and stylish Senses restaurant, by Lars Bertelsenm, showcases local and organic ingredients throughout its exquisite menu. Club sandwiches and salads are available for lunch, while more substantial international fare is served for dinner. An American buffet breakfast is included in your stay.

Location

The Albus sits in a lively location within Amsterdam’s famous Canal Belt, a short walk from the Dam, Rembrandt, Liese and Mundt squares and close to many well-known museums, such as Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House. The Flower Market is only a couple of minutes’ walk away, and there are tons of shops, bars, cafés, clubs and restaurants in the area.

My opinion

We are recently visiting Amsterdam and the booking office chose me the albus hotel to stay in for 3 nights . The location is good , the loby is nice , but the rooms are very bad ; very small and the bathroom is tiny and old . The elevator was not working we were obliged to use the stairs we were on the 4th floor and we have luggage .

Best Accomodation I ever settled for

Decent and tidy place without any inconvenience at any one moment. At the heart ♥ of Amsterdam and easily accessible. Very nice reception, with great varieties of meal plan. Very fast free Wi-Fi with all functional facilities and very safe indeed for a visitor especially within or from out of Amsterdam.
Looking for a place to stay while in the Netherlands, look out for Albus.

We were with a group of 20 but every one felt home. The Staff is very welcoming and responsive ! Very well situated too.
