The Albus Hotel, Amsterdam, Netherlands

We love visiting Amsterdam. Walks wandering the canals and visiting the gorgeous little cafes and waterside restaurants. It’s a great city and we visited it most recently on our spring trip to the Netherlands while off exploring the top ten things to do with children in Amsterdam. We were keen to stay somewhere central and family-friendly and immediately came up with a success on those two fronts with The Albus Hotel, Amsterdam.

The Albus Hotel is a trendy hotel situated in central Amsterdam, within the ring of canals.

It’s a smart boutique hotel with a number of double rooms and suites.

As soon as you walk into the hotel you receive a really warm welcome from the enthusiastic reception staff. They are really well-informed with great insights about getting around the city.

The hotel is on one of the main streets in the city, so it’s really easy to walk to many of the key attractions. Or you can hop on a tram just down from the hotel to the art galleries, zoo or further into the city centre.

It’s well located for exploring Amsterdam and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes within easy reach.


The Albus has a number of smart double rooms and suites. We stayed in a family loft room which had a lovely, large double bed.

There was also a large bathroom with some great products.


The Senses restaurant at the Albus was popular with evening diners and their breakfast offered a nice spread of pastries and fruit.


There was also a selection of cheeses and some hot food to help yourself to, along with fruits and cereals.


The Albus Hotel Amsterdam – The Best Bits

It was great being in a hotel which was so central and we were able to walk or catch the tram easily to everywhere we needed to visit. When we were back in the room it was nice to have the touches like a Nespresso machine on hand to make a good coffee.


We really liked the room, it was bright and clean and modern and a good space for a family.

Worth Bearing in Mind:

Parking in the whole of Amsterdam is a nightmare.

Fortunately, the Albus Hotel has negotiated reduced parking charges. The car park is a ten-minute walk from the hotel, so make sure you’ve dropped your bags beforehand.

You can park more cheaply at the out-of-town park and ride but when you’re there with children it can be time-consuming and quite a lot of hassle.

Something to think about if you are traveling by car.

Child Friendly?

Yes, we all felt very welcome at The Albus Hotel. The children were offered Drop (the Dutch liquorice) every time we went downstairs which they loved.

It’s great to find a central, boutique hotel that has family rooms.
