Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent location, you can go almost everywhere by walking. Rooms are clean, but quite small. Take breakfast, it’s very good! Behind our successful accommodation was above all the very friendly staff of hotel Albus. I recommed this hotel warmly!

The staff here was incredible! They were genuine and accommodating. The front desk people went beyond all expectations. The sous chef/bartender was attentive and personable. The wine selection was extensive and the coffee delicious. The bed was comfortable and the shower was wonderful. So happy to have found this hotel!

Me and my boyfriend had the most amazing stay here. The staff were so welcoming and friendly. When we were checking in the gave us some champagne to welcome us! They were also so helpful with any questions we had. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean and got cleaned everyday! We were lucky enough to get a balcony which we were so greatful for. The location was ideal, there was a tram station right outside the hotel but most of the attractions are walking distance. We only got the tram from the airport other than that we walked everywhere and it was great! I would reccommend this hotel to anyone visiting Amsterdam. We will definitely be back!

Amazing staff! Central located hotel, with a very welcoming lobby. Reception offered drinks and brought us to our room, presented and explained the room amenities and advised great recommendations. Breakfast is intercontinental and they offer special requests like scrambled eggs and even mimosa or champagne if you request, for a charge of course .

Just stayed for 3 nights at The Albus The staff are the friendliest and most helpful that we have come across anywhere. They were all extremely professional and knowledgeable. The room was small but had everything we needed We was in room 507 at the back of hotel and very very quiet Hotel In fantastic location We came on Eurostar and got Tube number 24 straight to the Hotel The Staff booked us the Windmill trip which was 5 hours long and well worth doing Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and will certainly stay again when we return to Amsterdam

We stayed in the Albus over Christmas 2022. Now firstly let me say that the hotel location is great and the room was lovely and clean. We had booked a premium room, and the room was a nice size, but the bed was made up of two single beds pushed together. Now of course we’ve had this before, but they had dressed the bed with single sheets too, so we were separate in bed. Cuddling was impossible as one of us would end up falling between the two beds. So If you’re going for a romantic break it isn’t ideal. We also selected this hotel as we noticed there was a bar. The bar was very small and located in the lobby so there was no atmosphere and very few seats. One evening we came in and sat at the bar but were told that we couldn’t have any of the premium spirits as they were being used by a private party in the restaurant. So there were two bottles we could choose from, and neither were what we wanted. Finally the other small issue was that our room was located on the 6th floor (I think from memory). Every morning we were woken between 8.30-9am by the cleaners chatting loudly outside our door. Very loudly. It was as if they were in our room. They congregated and chatted for at least 30 mins every morning. We realised that the linen cupboard was on our floor so presumed it had something to do with this, but again when you’re on holiday you want to relax and every morning we were wide awake by 9am. The hotel did request feedback from us following our visit, and after raising these issues we have not been contacted since. So all in all, clean hotel in great location but some improvements could be made. I don’t think we’d choose to stay here again.
