    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aspen Amsterdam

    A great hotel

    from

    My girlfriend and I stayed here for ten nights in August and loved it. The room was very tiny and the stairs narrow and steep, so it's no Ritz Carlton, but for two college students, or anyone else who wants to save some money, Hotel Aspen is IT.

    The room was absolutely spotless everyday, as were the bathrooms. We shared a bath with others on our floor but wouldn't have known it as we never had to wait or anything like that.

    Esam and Rudy (the proprietors) are extremely nice and will tell you where to go, how to get there etc. Its almost like a concierge service in this small, cheap hotel.

    The location is excellent as well, very close to the Anne Frank House, Westerkerk, Centraal Station, the Royal Palace, etc. Almost all the big attractions of the city are within a 15 minute walk, yet the streets outside the hotel were very quiet. We never had any trouble getting to sleep at night.

    Basically, this is a fantastic hotel for the budget traveler. It has a great location, friendly staff, and you don't have to worry about finding a roach in your mattress or a prowler in your room. An A+job by Esam and Rudy!

    Low prices, nice rooms, friendly staff

    from

    My girlfriend and I stayed 3 days at the Aspen Hotel in Amsterdam.

    We were a bit concerned about the quality of the hotel due to the low prices. We were surprised to find out that this hotel had nice and clean rooms, the staff was extremely friendly and in addtion to that the hotel is in the heart of Amsterdam - a short walk from the Dam square, in walking distance from the Centraal Station.

    Breakfast is not served, but the money that you save, you can use to buy yourself a good breakfast elsewhere in the city.

    There is no doubt, that we will also stay at the Aspen Hotel next time we go to Amsterdam.

    Great price, great location

    from

    Great location (short walk to Dam Square) and even greater price (one of the cheapest in central Amsterdam). The manager was extremely helpful and nice. The bathrooms are shared (one shower/toilet per floor - with 3-4 rooms per floor). The only negative there's no elevator, so if you have a ton of luggage (like we did) and are on the top floor... it's a long narrow staircase to climb up. I'm staying here the next time I'm in Amsterdam.

    Holtel Aspen was everything we expected

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Aspen June 9, 2004 for one night. It was everything previous posters had said.

    Basic and clean. We had a room with four twin beds (which were very comfortable) and paid 90 Euros for 4 people. (great for Amsterdam).

    The room was very basic. No TV or alarm. No minibar or coffee service, no breakfast. But we were not expecting any frills for the price we paid. The owners were extremely helpful and nice!

    The location is not bad, 5 minutes to Dam Square and Anne Frank House.

    The only draw-backs are the steep narrow steps(quite a work out and you need to plan your trips)

    and it is 30 minutes walking distance to the train station.

    If you are looking to stay in Amsterdam for very little, the Hotel Aspen is perfect!

    Great location and value for money

    from

    This is where i stay anytime i am in Amsterdam , why i rate it so high is because of value for money and location , it is located about 200 m from Royal Palace in a high class architectural complex. There is no breakfast and the rooms are plainly furnished. A good tourist hotel , secure and clean with friendly staff and very central location ....Robert from Scotland .

    Great location, great management, great value!

    from

    I have stayed at the Hotel Aspen 7 or 8 times and I can recommend Hotel Aspen most highly. The rates are great, the management is very friendly and pleasent, the location is safe and convenient, and the rooms are clean and nice. I wish I was there right now. Randy G.

    Excellent Value for Money

    from

    Hotel Aspen is by no means the Ritz. We were looking for somewhere very cheap but clean and comfortable and we definitely found it! The friendly welcome when we arrived was an added bonus. To keep costs down we opted for a room without a bathroom and did not regret it at all.

    The toilet and shower room were spotless and we only shared with one other room. The hotel is a short walk from the main attractions but just far enough out of the hustle and bustle to have an undisturbed night's sleep. Highly recommended to travellers on a budget.

    Hotel Aspen is Excellent!

    from

    Hotel Aspen at Raadhuisstraat 31 is a clean, well-maintained and friendly hostelry that I would heartily recommend to anyone planning a visit to Amsterdam. Superb location being as close as the Hotel is to Dam Square and the attractions of Grachtengordel.

    Great budget hotel

    from

    This was one of the cheapest finds in Amsterdam at 65Euro for room with private bathroom. The room was big, the bathroom impecable and the owner was very helpful, he even gave us a map with all the useful places to go circled for us. All in all, great value! As an extra you can even order great coffee as room service. Prefer a room facing the garden though, as street rooms are noisy and ours did not have double paned windows.

    Loved it!

    from

    The hotel Aspen was very well-priced, really well-located, clean and amazingly quiet at night. Can't beat it for the price! Owner and family also very friendly.

We made our way towards Volendam and got to go inside a genuine Dutch working windmill which was funnily enough German built. As part of this I got to climb up to the top and see the "engine room", which was on big casters so that the whole top could be turned 360 degrees. This is so they can aim ...

We stopped at the nearby tourist office and bought 72 hour transit cards along with a museum card and then headed out to the hotel on the very efficient metro system.

    ... I did some reading and found out the reason that marijuana is legal in the Netherlands is because the Dutch consider it to be a 'soft drug' at the same level as cigarettes and alcohol, yes it can be harmful in large quantities but in the end, its a personal choice. They do still have harsh penalties for those caught with 'hard drugs' such as cocaine and heroin. Moving on from all the drugs, we met up with our friend Rose who is an Amsterdam local. We met Rose ...

    Our overnight train ride from Munich to Amsterdam was the first time our kids had ever been in a "couchette" (sleeping cabin), and they were both giddy with excitement. We had been waiting in the Munich train station for the past four hours, so we were all eager to finally board our coach around 10:20pm. Sam Jackson and I shared one cabin while Catherine and Caroline shared the other. Both cabins were equipped with a set of bunk beds, a tiny shower, and a ...

    ... were very low for this tour. To my great surprise, I thoroughly enjoyed it! It really felt a bit more like an antique boat show. The captain also thoroughly amazed everyone with his ability to navigate a huge boat through some very tiny spaces.After driving Tim's catamaran very briefly and watching Tim do the same I was super impressed with this guy's skills. At any rate, every canal had boats moored along them. There were all sorts of boats. Rowboats, powerboats, sailboats ...
