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.


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.


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.


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.

I only stayed at the Albus for one night but had an amazing experience. All the staff were extremely attentive. At check in I was treated really well and they also took the time to show me to my room and inform me of necessities, services etc. The guy at check in was very nice and also provided me with a toothbrush and toothpaste which I had forgotten. The room was very clean, modern and nice, provided with everything you could ask for. The breakfast was a good collection of hot and cold food and the lady in charge was very attentive and friendly and helped you with anything you could possibly ask for. In terms of location the Albus is very close to everything and is located in a really cute and safe neighbourhood. Thank you all for making my stay pleasurable.

Dennis Steffens was the highlight of this hotel. His customer service was perfect from the time we walked into The Albus.
He took care of an accommodation issue because of our travel agent’s booking. He was so kind and set up our tickets for museum tours, tram as well as meals. Location was perfect and the breakfasts were yummy. Our apt 2 was spacious and a great upgrade. Thank you Dennis and Albus!
