“Comfortable stay in a good location”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

The hotel is centrally located, quite close to a tram stop, with a very friendly owner. The stairs are steep but not impossible to climb, however not recommended for older or frail people. The room was located away from the street, so there was no noise from outside. The bathroom was clean and quite large compared to some others in Europe. There is a supermarket about two blocks away.

Overall, the hotel was what I had expected after reading about It on many review sites. The rooms were small and very basic with mushy tiny beds but everything was clean and our host was very friendly and informative. One thing I must say is that the owners should invest in fans!! Our room was SO stifling hot at night and it was not even a hot day. Opening the window only slightly helped. Please, Hotel Aspen...have a few room fans on hand just in case!

We enjoyed four nights in this conveniently located Amsterdam hotel. It's just minutes from the Anne Frank museum, Dam square, lovely canals, great shopping, and good food. Although the steps are steep it was still worth the stay here. If you're on a budget and looking for some place to just sleep and relax after a day of seeing sights then this place is perfect! It's very clean and the gracious host, Esam, will greet you with a warm smile and his knowledge of all the sights and neighborhoods to visit. We would definitely stay here again!

The hotel is nearby the canals. Abt 15min walk from the red light district. It's on the 2nd floor, with a steep staircase.. A nice old gentleman will greet you and give you info about anything in Amsterdam.

This is a very nice, no-frills hotel located right in the middle of Amsterdam. The hotel is very clean and very well maintained. The room was very clean and in very good condition. The owner was very helpful and kind. This hotel is really well located just in the center of Amsterdam, two blocks away from The Dam and just around the corner of Anna Frank's house. I really recommend it, for a very nice budget hotel in a good location. The only but, is be careful since it has a very steep staircase with no lift, which could be problematic for some.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room in order to avoid noise.

Rooms were basic and small, but the location and price were great. Be careful of the steep staircase!

This hotel was perfect for a budget weekend away. The stairs are extremely steep but if you don't have much luggage and are fairly mobile, they should be manageable. We stayed in a great triple room, which was quite spacious, spartan but clean and quiet. Perfect for what we wanted, also location is 15 mins walk from central station and very convenient.
