The room was so small, I wouldn't even consider it a room! The bathroom smelled like body odor. There was absolutely no air circulation in the room or air conditioning. There was a small fan in there that barely worked. Not to mention the scariest steep stairs! Did I mention no elevator!! Wasn't horrible, but won't be staying there again....

Location, location, location. However, it comes at a price (although cheap) the room is very,very basic. Spend the extra money and get an ensuite too. We did not and regretted since the bathroom and shower were separate and very, very small. Believe the hype about the stairs, they are the vertical and a lot of them. Be prepared for climbing...

This is bare bones sort of hotel. Do not expect luxury. But that's what we wanted: great location at the heart of everything, quiet (we had a room facing the back), all necessities available and clean. Essam was friendly, discreet, helpful. Just the sort of place we were hoping for during our visit to Amsterdam. A definite thumbs up!

OK, the stairs are terrible... But this hotel has a nice localisation, near to main Amsterdam atractions and with a hop on-hop off bus just in front of it. The owners were really nice to us and even helped me with my lugagge in the stairs. The room was clean and had a bathroom inside.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Aspen for three nights in early September. It did not disappoint. Esam was very friendly and helpful, and the hotel worked perfectly for why we booked it--perfect, centralized location and a good value for something decent but not fancy. Is it glamorous? No, it is not. But it's not bad at all, and...

We had an amazing stay in Amsterdam, and it was partly down to this fantastic Hotel and such a nice owner! When we arrived it was raining very badly, so we went to see if we could check in early, the owner was so friendly and accommodating and allowed us to go straight to our room. The room was brilliant...

Yes, the steps were very steep, and we stayed on the third floor, so were winded everytime we arrived at the room. But, the owners were SUPER nice and funny AND helpful. The complex was kept very clean, and is clear that it has been maintained over the years. Private bathrooms, although small and with limited room, were well kept....

Arrived back yesterday from an awesome stay. If you want to pay a good price for a clean, alright room with a clean, alright communal shower and toilet, rather than a paying a bucket load for a poncy hotel, or near to nothing for a night in a crack den, Hotel Aspen is perfect. Honestly you get what you paid...

Stayed in a single room on the top floor and listened to the dulcet chimes of Westerkerk for a week. Had shared shower/toilet (but only with one other room on same floor). Room was cleaned & spotless everyday, facilities also spotless. Super location to reach everywhere in Amsterdam either on foot to close things or tram stop 2 minutes away...
