Positive Reviews

Location couldn’t be better

Albus Amsterdam City Centre hotel could not be in a better location from which to visit Amsterdam It is conveniently near the tram although so much of the city is within easy walking distance You can get to the Flower Market, Rembrandsquare and other squares in just minutes, not to mention a number of museums including Van Gogh In addition, there are also many restaurants and cafes, along with shops to easily walk to.

Friendly and helpful staff

The staff at the hotel is helpful and very friendly The reception provides complimentary water, tea or coffee when you arrive If possible at the time, they will check you in early and go out of the way to accommodate your needs Staff will happily get you a taxi, provide directions and are very knowledgeable about the area.

Nice rooms with super comfy beds

The beds are fantastic, with the most confortable linens and pillows The Nespresso machine is a lovely addition, not to mention the luxurious bathrobes Also worth noting, the décor, not just of the rooms but the hotel in general, is clean, contemporary and fun.

Negative Reviews

No AC in the very hot rooms

The rooms do not have air conditioning and (especially in warm weather) are very hot and uncomfortable The fans help a bit but can only do so much Also worth mentioning, there is no minibar in the room, which is unusual and would be a nice addition.

Poor Wi-Fi connection

Wi-Fi at Albus Amsterdam City Centre, although included, is slow if it’s working at all It repeatedly loses connection so forget downloading anything Not to mention the sign-in process is overly cumbersome.

Noisy rooms and area

Rooms on the ground floor are noisy, making for a poor nights sleep They are by the service rooms and you can hear doors and people coming and going The area is also fairly noisy if you have a room situated by the street (or reception/bar) You’ll likely hear traffic and bar noise Try and get a room away from these areas That said, this isn’t surprising for the area and the location is worth this inconvenience.
