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.

Great hotel pick
Marijke V

I chose the Albus hotel for our week-long stay in Amsterdam for its location and we didn't regret the pick. It's right by the flower market, so this is always nice to see, but it's also very central to so much else too. You can walk it in 10-12 minutes from the train station, or hop on the 24 tram for a quicker trip.

The staff members were all helpful and one in particular, the young woman who checked us in was delightful. I believe she went above and beyond trying to help us when we needed it. We arrived much earlier than check in time (our flight landed at 7:30 a.m.), but we were able to check in and then walk around the city until they called to say the room was ready. They also presented us with a lovely gift on the day of our 34th anniversary.

The rooms were clean and spacious, which was a nice treat given the tiny rooms we've had in other European hotels. Room size is never my deciding factor, but it is nice when there is plenty of space.

Plenty of restaurants nearby, which made up for the limited hotel restaurant offerings. I would stay there again.

Fantastic Hotel in central Amsterdam

We arrived at the Albus Hotel and were greeted at reception buy very friendly staff. Check in was prompt and we were offered a map of the city and suggestions of where to eat and places to go. Our room was very clean and modern and the hotel over all was very tastefully decorated.
The Hotel is situated halfway between the city Centre and the museum quarter. Just a short walk to all the major sites and attractions. I can’t say enough good things about this hotel. It was perfect for our stay and we would defiantly stay here again next time we visit Amsterdam

September/October stay at the Albus Hotel

This is our second year staying at this chic, modern boutique hotel. It's located in the center of town and walkable to everything. The night we arrived they had just installed new mattresses in all of the rooms and the bed was so comfortable. This hotel is great all by itself but the staff really makes it! They go out of their way to make your stay perfect; they know Amsterdam inside and out, they're above friendly to everyone and they're extremely professional. I urge anyone headed to Amsterdam to make your reservations here. You won't be disappointed!! Great bar & restaurant too.
