“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

I was in Europe on business and spending the weekend in Amsterdam. I needed a hotel that would be nice and comfortable, but not too expensive since my company would be paying. The weekend I was there was also when the Amsterdam Marathon and another large dance conference was taking place so most of the hotels were booked in the city. After a lot of searching I came across the Sir Albert Hotel. The price looked good and location, while not in the city center, looked close enough to the sites that I thought I would give it a shot. I made the right call! The hotel ended up being very nice. The service was first class...the rooms were interesting (modern designs) and comfortable...and the location ended up being perfect since it was close to the museum area. I would definitely come back and strongly recommend this hotel.

Only downside was the restaurant in the hotel. I tried to eat dinner there, but the staff was very unfriendly and was reluctant to even allow me to sit at the bar (they were crowded).

Room Tip: I was given a ground floor room which looks right out on the street (I kept my curtains closed). Ma...

I had spent many hours on the internet looking at reviews of hotels in Amsterdam, just wanting to get the right one. I found Sir Albert by chance and what a gem! It was fantastic,so easy to get to just hop on the 16 tram and get of at stop 6 and a 2 min walk. We were welcomed with a glass of prosecco and showed to our room. It was very comfortable and the bedding the best I have slept in. The area around is great lots of small restaurants and a cafe or two. It is only a 10 min walk to all the museums and shops. If you want to head to the centre another 10/15min walk but there is so much around the hotel we really only visited Dam square once.
If you are looking for some advice,book Sir Albert and hopefully you will have a fantastic stay in Amsterdam as we did.

The Sir Albert is by far the best hotel I've stayed at in Amsterdam. I was there for two nights in October. The hotel is in De Pijp, just on the edge of the Museum district and out of the craziness of the centre, and it is a great location to explore one of the "hippest" neighbourhoods in the city. Rooms are minimalist, stylish, airy and have some great finishing touches - Nespresso machine, comfy bed, and a personal message from Sir Albert! Cosy lounge, free wifi and very helpful staff. Plus an excellent restaurant on the ground floor - Izakaya.

Initially I booked this hotel for the wrong weekend (complete mistake on my behalf) however the hotel was fully booked for the weekend I actually had intended to travel. I had booked through Travel Republic who were of very little help in trying to change the booking (I realised I made the mistake after booking at 10pm and called first thing the next morning to be told that it was non-refundable etc). Thankfully Lea "the lady" at the hotel was able to change our room (we upgraded, paid a fee and were happy to do so) so thank you Lea for your assistance as it was very frustrating dealing with Travel Republic.

The hotel itself is beautiful, very well designed with minimalist interior, great shower, comfortable beds, Ipod docks, WiFi, TV etc. The Staff were very professional and very friendly, thanks also to Arthuro for his restaurant suggestions (Indonesian food being his speciality).

The location of this hotel in the Pijp is perfect, not to far from the Museums (check out the new Rijksmuseum), Heiniken Brewery, The market on a saturday is worth checking out if you fancy some street food, but it is a real market (i.e. washing powder/cheeses/meats/bread). The area itself is pretty cool (a bit hipstery), lots of design shops, nice little bars (havanas / Kingfisher bar) and restaurants. Also Little Collin (cafe) is a great spot for breakfast. It is a nice stroll from this area into the red light district (about 20/25 mins). There is also a nice bar/cafe on the corner (looking at the canal) directly opposite the hotel.

I would definitely stay here again when returning to Amsterdam.

We loved staying in the funky "Pijp" neighbourhood--great place to cap off a day of exploring. We had our pick of traditional and international bistros (Moroccan, Indonesian, Surinamese for starters) and then the plethora of great drinking holes on nearby Eerste van der Helststraat (off of the legendary market street of Albert Cuypmarkt. The room was stylish and very comfortable and quiet (deluxe King) with nice touches (lots of counter space in the bathroom, selection of books in the room.) Easy to downtown by tram (or a 20-minute walk past scenic canals) I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for cool convenience. And, no tourist hordes invade the area at night. Very welcoming staff.

This is a stylish and superb hotel in De Pijp. Staff are friendly and helpful and happily directed us to a number of local bars, restaurants, markets etc. in this less-obvious, but interesting suburb.

The room provided the most comfortable bed I've slept in, I would have easily stayed beyond the generous noon check-out time. It was well-equipped with an espresso maker and rain-forest shower. We had a lovely view onto the adjacent canal, towards Rijksmuseum.

One minor issue would be the practicality of the rooms, nowhere for wet towels etc. and the location. However, while the hotel is a significant walk from Central Station, it's very close to Museumplein and some quieter but smart suburbs, away from the usual tourist trail that are worth exploring. If you don't fancy walking, take the tram or better still, stay in the room and enjoy the marshmallow bedding!

Friendly, solution-minded staff, champagne at check-in.
Its a twenty minute walk along the canal to the convention center. There are great restaurants within minutes. Free WiFi. Spacious, modern rooms, espresso machine in room.

Room Tip: Not much of a view, so the courtyard rooms are nice and quiet.
