Fodor's Expert Review Sir Albert Hotel

Albert Cuypstraat 2-6, Amsterdam, North Holland, 1072 CT, Netherlands

Set in a 19th-century former diamond factory, this atmospheric hotel aims to make guests feel like they're staying in a deluxe private mansion and with its urban, masculine vibe and location in a trendy neighborhood, it largely succeeds. Instead of a lobby, there's a study filled with brown leather armchairs, a library, and an open fireplace, and contemporary guest rooms are done up in sleek brown and black. Most feature open-plan bathrooms with high-powered rain showers, while all suites also have Philippe Starck soaking bathtubs. Contact the concierge in advance to book a table at the buzzy IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, filled with beautiful people every night; or if you're not in the mood to see and be seen, opt for the room service menu, which also includes burgers from popular neighborhood joint THE BUTCHER.
