Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Location is perfect - literally the heart of the city. The rooms were nice and cozy. There was however a smell from the bathroom, and it did persist(from the drain), and I believe they mistakenly threw out a personal item, but they did offer complimentary drinks so it really

I came to Amsterdam with my girlfriend and we both loved it. The hotel was clean, conveniently located, and comfortable and the staff was professional and extremely helpful. My next visit to Amsterdam would be wasted at another hotel. 5 star rating!

Hi, Thank you for your question. The hotel is 100% non-smoking. If you book the tripadvisor deal you will always get the upgrade when booking a standard room. If you book a king then there is a matter of subject to availability. If all the suites are booked, we can not offer an upgrade also if you already have booked the suite. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to contact us directly by sending an email to reservations. Booking this deal or by booking directly through our website you will always book with the lowest rate. Warm regards, Sandra The Albus Hotel

Dear Sindie, When guests are checking in we ask the full amount by check in. We only ask €50 extra per person when guests do not have a creditcard as a garanty for perhaps extra costs. I hope to have informed you well. Kind regards, Bart Pastoor

"As a smoker, a balcony is good, but you give up a bigger room. Consider this."
"Some rooms have balconies--ask"
"Great location."
"Generally in this part of Europe, double beds are two single beds joined. If you need a double, make sure to request one."
"Rooms at the back are very quiet. The spacious city suites are very large and airy."
