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.

Stayed at the albus in February for 3 nights with my partner. Arrived earlier than the check in time and our room was ready for us, which we were very happy about! Offered drinks by the lovely staff. Amazing stay, comfortable and modern bedrooms, lovely bathroom. Excellent location, right in the centre. Overall a lovely stay and I highly recommend! Will be staying here every time I visit Amsterdam for sure! Thank you albus x

This hotel was so great! The staff were incredibly friendly, from check in to them saying, "have a great evening" or "welcome back" every time we passed through the lobby. The hotel was very clean and beautiful, with the rooms looking brand new. The phone that comes with each room was very handy to have and use for Google maps through the city. The hotel is fairly close to the center of the city and a great location for walking to all sorts of museums and attractions. If I go back to Amsterdam, I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

Not the best reception as the trainee first declined my credit card and refused to swipe it although we told her to. Eventually when she listened it worked. Then she got confused with the lift buttons ehen taking us to the room and then thought it was the wrong room. She did apologize though. We stayed for 7 days. Bed was not that comfortable and about time for a replacement on the mattress.
Otherwise a good size room with bathroom and swoher. Nespresso coffee machine was nice!
Hotel situated about 10 minutes walk to Heineken and 2 minutes to closest market and restaurants or trams. 15 minutes walk to the central station.

Great hotel

Happy with everything. Room was clean and quiet and had a balcony with nice rooftop views. Our young daughter got a proper bed not a sofa bed which is what we often get when we’re all three in the same room. The free map was the best we got for tram numbers and routes. Staff all friendly, welcoming and helpful. Cosy bar. Good Wi-fi connection. Tram stop just outside and excellent location for bars, restaurants, site seeing. Can’t comment on the restaurant as we didn’t use it - that’s typical for us.
