Sir Albert is a hip, boutique Design Hotel in central Amsterdam, housed in a storied building that once served as a diamond factory. This quirky heritage is embraced in the design – courtesy of the award-winning team at BK Architecture – evidenced by the high ceilings and strikingly large windows. These industrial-chic touches are offset by super-sleek furnishings, stone- washed flooring and bold Persian rugs, making this property a style-lover’s dream.
But despite all the aesthetic reasons to love this new hotel, you should know it has both style and substance. It’s home to IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, where you can indulge in market-fresh sashimi and mouth-watering rolls, or kick back on the terrace to take in the pretty canal views. There’s even a tranquil spa where you can unwind after a day spent exploring the city – which, by the way, will be easy to do. Located in De Pijp, the city’s Latin Quarter, you’re just a stone’s throw away from picturesque canals, thriving markets, world-class museums and fantastic shopping in Van Baerlestraat.
The award-winning designers at BK Architecture created all 90 guest rooms and suites. In the Sir Deluxe rooms, you’ll get grand views of the Albert Cuypstraat, De Pijp and the city center. All abodes have unique, custom furnishings, lighting and fabrics.
For a sumptuous taste of high-end Japanese dining, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar has it all. The traditional Japanese Robata Grill is at the venue’s very heart. Order small dishes called sakana, if you’re the sharing type, or try the market-fresh sashimi and mouth-watering rolls. The bar stocks more than 300 premium wines in the wine cellar and serves a multitude of house-infused tonics based on the ancient Japanese spirit shochu. There’s also a terrace, overlooking a romantic canal, where you can take in the views with a cocktail in hand.
Holland’s capital has plenty to keep you busy. The best way to see the city is to rent a bicycle, and then traverse the quaint streets and waterways. The Sir Albert is in a dead-central location and within easy walking distance to the legendary P.C. Hooftstraat, Albert Cuyp (the city’s most famous market), vibrant Leidseplein and Amsterdam’s art-fueled Museumplein. If you’re a classical-music connoisseur, check out the Royal Concertgebouw.
How to Get There
Great location. Hotel is in De Pijp, less than a 10 minute walk from Rijkesmuseum and 12 minutes from Van Gogh. Great restaurants within a five minute walk and Hotel has an excellent sushi restaurant. We had a very nice room on the second floor. Room was decent sized with separate shower and bathrooms. Amenities in room were generous. Bed was very comfortable. Only drawback was A/C which did not allow for adequate cooling on a hot day and night.
Breakfast was outstanding and service in the hotel was great.
Would definitely recommend to others and stay there again.
I’ve just returned from a short stay at Sir Albert Hotel and I was really impressed with the experience.
Firstly, the location in De Pijp is great. Slightly out of the city centre, but easily within walking distance to both Centrum and Museumkwartier, De Pijp feels like ‘real’ Amsterdam - mostly locals, upscale bars and restaurants, the street markets. Cool area. You don’t have all the canals (although there is one outside the hotel), but you also don’t have all the confused tourists waddling around buying souvenirs and getting stoned.
The hotel itself is low-key, low-lit, relatively design-forward. I stayed in a superior room, which had a view across the rooftops, very comfortable bed and big bathroom. Scrupulously clean, air conditioned, with chill deep house playing on the sound system when I arrived. Again, exactly what I want in Amsterdam.
Lastly, service was great. The Dutch are really friendly anyway, but everyone I bumped into from the hotel was accommodating, relaxed, efficient. Special thanks to Manuel, who is the epitome of polished, professional service, but with none of the off-putting obsequiousness you get in parts of the US and Asia. I really appreciated all his efforts to make my stay comfortable.
I would certainly return to Sir Albert Hotel next time I’m in Amsterdam. Exactly what I was looking for.
The staff are friendly and genuine here! A staff member who checked me in asked about my interests and had thoughtful suggestions, which she marked on a map. Guests are offered a refreshment right away, which is something that just makes sense.
This hotel is cozy, with lots of books in The Library and a fireplace too. Our room had lots of neat decor, like books, framed antique prints, and a remote-controlled Bluetooth stereo. The room design was intuitive...I didn’t repeatedly try light switches to find the right one and the lights have two bedside remote controls. The hotel is thoughtfully designed, operated by excellent hotel and restaurant staff, and the location near central Amsterdam is ideal.
What a first class Hotel, from the moment we checked in we were made to feel so relaxed and at home, the very friendly staff were so welcoming every time we saw them.
A very vibrant atmosphere in the Bar /Restaurant, Our room was a real treat to return to every evening after a very busy day sightseeing, will be returning to this gem once again
It was the first time in Amsterdam. Upon check in you get a drink and you sit down to check in, so cool! Check in was super smooth and nice. Thank jeffrey for telling us so much about amsterdam and what to do in 2 days. Rooms wwas great, beds super and breakfast was great. We will be back!
