Hotel Aspen
Ranked #255 of 373 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Good if you don't need much space and are just staying for 1-2 nights. There was not much water in the shower, no sink in the bathroom (but in the bedroom) and the stairs are steep but the owners are exceptionally friendly and its close to Anne Frank museum and the red District.

Booked this hotel for 3 nights for 3 adult family members. It was easy to find and very handy location for all parts of Amsterdam, we had a triple room with private bathroom. For the price we paid we were really happy with the cleanliness of the hotel, bedding and towels changed daily, room cleaned and hoovered daily, for the price you pay you really can't get any cleaner than Hotel Aspen, there are no televisions or coffee making facilities in the rooms but you can purchase a coffee or cold drinks from the owner who is a lovely gentleman, he is very helpful at pointing out the attractions and what to avoid, we had an early morning flight home and he brought us coffee up to the room at 6.30am, very happy stay :-)

A characterful hotel among the traditional buildings of central Amsterdam and within 10 mins walk of the railway station. Bars, restaurants and visitor attractions within a few minutes walk. Room was clean, comfortable and warm.

This little hotel was the perfect choice for our 36 hour layover in Amsterdam. It was very clean and the owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The price is great too (we actually spent more on the taxi from the airport than we did on this room! Fortunately, the owner informed us of the shuttle service and booked it for our return to the airport--lesson learned!) Our room did not have a private bathroom, but we were pleased to find the shared bathrooms to be immaculate.

Be warned, however, that the stairs are STEEP! It was awfully hard for us to drag our very large suitcases up to the 3rd floor. We managed, but this might be a negative for seniors or handicapped individuals. Overall, very pleased and would definitely recommend it!

Amsterdam is a great city to spend some time in and you will want to be out and about enjoying every minute of it. If you are looking for somewhere central that is basic and clean, this hotel is ideal. We were there for 3 nights and the bed and towels were changed every day. As all the other reviews say, the stairs are steep but its only hard when you are carrying your suitcase up. Our room was at the back so no traffic noise at all just the bells from the clock! Short stroll to Dam square and lots of pubs restaurants and coffee shops

Room Tip: A room at the back will not overlook the street.

most of the previous reviews nail it- steep steps beware, basic rooms with no frills, great location, clean & comfortable.

Esam is a great manager, beyond friendly and accommodating. I was traveling alone but hopped around room to room during my stay and he worked with me to those adjustments.

highly suggest booking a good amount of time in advance- found this to be true with most hotels in Amsterdam.

all rooms I stayed in were very clean and the beds very comfortable. the only thing I wish this hotel had we're TVs in the room.

would highly recommend!

Let me start my review by saying you get what you pay for if you want luxury don't stay here, but if you want clean cheap comfortable place to stay this is IDEAL. The hotel has 56 very steep steps so wouldn't suit elderly or anyone with climbing difficulty. When we arrived we where greeted by Esam the owner a very lovely man, very helpful told us everything we needed to know and marked the map of all the places we mite like to visit. Overall we had a great stay and location was perfect for getting to everywhere. Love Amsterdam it's a beautiful place but very very expensive when you get here so be aware.
