Albus Hotel Amsterdam We stayed at Albus hotel for 3 nights from 25-28th December 2016. We were greeted upon arrival and given some welcome drinks. We were assisted to our room. We booked a triple room. The room was clean, though we found it a little small for 3 people and not much lighting. The bathroom was big and spacious....

Just stayed at the Albus for two nights with my partner. While the location is very convenient, the hotel quality was quite poor.. Our room was small and the hotel was very noisy with slamming doors etc. The bathroom was not a 4* grade and I was left disappointed with the room in general. Could not fault the staff, however...

I stayed here in January for three nights. It was recommended by a friend. On arrival, the greeting was very friendly and I was advised of different things.

This is a cute hotel fairly well located in Amsterdam. It has modern furnishings. Unfortunately, it has a very unusual design in the bathroom. There is no tub or shower stall. You take a shower right on the terrazzo bathroom floor. This might work but the drain was slow and so our bathroom floor was constantly wet. We put down...
