The rooms might be quite small and compact but they are modern and have an absolutely fantastic bed!! Staff was very friendly so no complains there. The reception/lounge is tiny with a few chairs and couple of couches and since the restaurant is a popular hot spot and therefore always packed there seems to be no room at all, so unless you have a table reservation you will struggle to find a spot to sit for a drink.. The location could be better but city centre is around 10 min walk so no biggie..

We stopped here for 1 night on 15th March. Lovely hotel. Only thing I'd say is to be aware it's a little bit away from the centre but once we got our bearings we found it fun to use the trams. We were told the hotel is situated in an up and coming part of Amsterdam. It's 5 stops on the tram from the town centre and they run very regularly. Hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly. Like everyone else has said the beds are extremely comfortable. We had a drink in the hotel bar at about 1.30am and noticed the music was still very loud at that time. We were on the 3rd floor and didn't hear any noise but I wouldn't like to stop in the rooms above the bar. Having said that we'd stop there again as it was a lovely hotel.

Lovely hotel in great area. Little bit of a hike to the centre but trams close by. The staff were very friendly and rooms whilst compact were very nice and modern. The breakfast was good value too.pefect for friends & families alike.

Room Tip: get high up cracking views over to the museum area.

My boyfriend booked the hotel having looked at various deals and different hotels, and Sir Albert was the clear favourite. Sir Albert is a little way out of the town centre, which suited us perfectly - it was a hotel aimed more at couples rather than 'stag/hen weekends'.

The rooms were clean and comfortable - we had a Deluxe room which overlooked a courtyard (which was later found out was the back of a Red Light District studio) but we had no problems with sound. The bed was comfortable, the shower was a really good, powerful shower and we had a very nice Illy coffee machine at the bedside. The downside was that the room got very warm in the night and there is a security light in the hall which was a bit bright for the room and woke me up in the night.

The staff were courteous and friendly - giving us a map of the city and pointing out the flower market, points of interest and the local area.

Sir Albert's restaurant is very popular and you should book as early as possible if you want to go. If not, you are able to grab a drink from the bar and have this in the snug.

We'd definitely visit Sir Albert again.

It was very nice to come back to Sir Albert with its great location and friendly staff (who even recognised me !).

As always, rooms are clean, beds are probably the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in.

But, and its a big BUT .....

If you want me to come back to your establishment, either :

(a) Turn down the volume of the music in the bar after 22:00
or
(b) Improve your sound insulation between ground and first floor

It is simply unacceptable for paying guests, who pay to have a good nights sleep to be kept awake until after midnight by the thumping loud music from the bar downstairs.

The breakfast is also poor value for money and the service at breakfast had got worse, not better since my previous visit.

Room Tip: Make sure they don't put you in a first floor room unless you enjoy listening to thumping loud m...

We stayed at Sir Albert for four nights in February 2014. Location was excellent - close to nice restaurants and cafés, 10 minutes' walk to several famous museums, but still quiet and next to a beautiful canal. We had a deluxe room, but to be honest it was really compact living. Comfortable bed with luxurious bedlinen and big pillows. Cleaning was spotless and breakfast was pricey but good. The entire hotel has an extremely pleasant and cosy atmosphere with a nice lounge. Above all we would like to thank Leonie and Arturo at the reception desk for the most helpful and friendly service we have ever experienced on any of our many, many travels around European capitals. Next time we go to Amsterdam, there is no doubt where we'll stay!

Room Tip: A room facing the canal is very nice.

We tracked down a good deal via Mr and Mrs Smith and stayed in a Sir Deluxe room. Staff were helpful, rooms were spotless - white cotton, black marble and chrome - and fabulously comfortable beds. We had a room at the back of the hotel so weren't troubled by noise. Illy coffee maker in our room and 12 noon check-out on our last day. We gave breakfast a miss - at €25.50 per person it seemed a bit on the pricey side - but there are loads of lovely cafes and cake shops close by. Also lovely sofa area downstairs if you just need to take the weight off your feet.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter. It's worth specifying that you want a room with a bath (rather t...
