Sir Albert welcomes guests where diamonds were once cut
March 5, 2013
Downtown Amsterdam welcomes Sir Albert, a luxury boutique hotel that embodies modern aristocratic living. This is a combination of living like the upper crust, with a distinctly down-to-earth approach.
Sir Albert is housed in the 19th-century Van Moppes diamond factory, which unique heritage is reflected in various aspects of the hotel. The high ceilings and big windows are a testament to its history. Sir Albert offers great design and boutique accommodation within walking distance from De Pijp, the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam and the centre of the city's urban chic.
Sir Albert offers 90 individually designed, spacious rooms and suites, many with views of the up-and-coming De Pijp district or one of Amsterdam’s romantic canals. All rooms were created by international award-winning designers BK Architects, inspired by the great design movements of the past, and updated for today. The rooms are fully equipped with an iPod docking station, free WiFi and Illy espresso machine. The hotel also features several stunning suites and residences with a living room, two bathrooms and a separate bedroom with a freestanding soaking bathtub by Philippe Starck. A concierge is onsite to secure you those hard-to-get reservations.
Guests who wish to connect with their ‘inner Brit’ may enjoy afternoon tea in The Study, the heart of Sir Albert’s mansion. The Study has a cosy fireplace and an inspirational library with a well-balanced selection of books on fashion, art, photography, nature and architecture.
The hotel's IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar offers Japanese dining throughout the day, and is a convivial place to meet for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Inspired by the five traditional Japanese elements of earth, water, wind, fire and heaven, IZAKAYA’s design is authentic and simple, creating a stylish and energetic ambiance.
Sir Albert offers personal service and hospitality at the highest level.
