It is easy walking distance to shopping and sights, about 10-15 minutes walk to the 9 streets area. Has a really good vibe of a trendy boutique hotel without breaking the bank. Rooms are...

Stayed on this hotel in February 2015. Front desk staff was very friendy, room was clean and spacious. Liked specially the Nespresso machine on the room, with coffee capsules free.

This was booked as a last minute weekend away. The location of the hotel was great and the staff were very hospitable. The breakfast had good choice and we would happily go back and stay at Albus in the future.
