I stayed at the Albus hotel for a week, while in Amsterdam for work. From first entering the doors to this hotel until going through them again to leave, my stay was fantastic. The staff is exceptional, and very welcoming and extremely helpful. The room was a home away from home, even sporting a Nespresso machine, and always spotlessly clean....

Arrived in Amsterdam early in the morning and was very grateful to be allowed to move straight into our room, allowing us to settle in and explore the city.

Clean and surprisingly silent room at the back, comfortable bed, great breakfast, newspapers available, friendly staff, really nothing left to be desired. A good place from which to explore Amsterdam.
