I came to this hotel as it was cheap, I didn't really look into where I was staying. When I did I saw all these negative reviews on here and I wasn't sure what to expect. We got there early evening on a Friday the woman who served me at reception was lovely and helpful she told us how to... More

We visited the Bastion in March 2015. The hotel itself is clean, friendly and spacious but the surrounding area is very run down, most of it looks derelict. There's not a lot round about the hotel but there is a McDonald's nearby and a Petrol Station practically on the doorstep for food. We found that Spaklerweg was the closest metro... More

We stayed here for three nights in May 2015, and we had a lovely stay. We chose this hotel because of the free parking as we were driving and we are glad that we did. The hotel was excellent! a very nice room - unfortunately it was only two singles rather than a double bed but we pushed the beds... More

Now the title of the review may make you think that this hotel is sub-standard, but actually it is OK, if it is what you are looking for. My colleague and myself stayed here for 2 nights. We were working in Amsterdam, so needed inexpensive accommodation, not too far from the centre. Our work booked us in here for a... More

I was actually supprised with this one. The room we got was really big and our kids had a separate bedroom. The room was... Lets say clean enough! The bed was also o.k and the rooms were very quiet, allthough right next to a train station. But the bathroom wasnt very clean and it was a hard to shower, since... More

Booked this after spending three nights in a Bastion in Maastricht in the South. Thought it would be similar, but was rather disappointed. Website image very deceptive. The Metro train #51 out of Central station to Overamstel station was not bad. Walk from metro station to hotel with luggage is a pain.... Down stairs, crossing roads, over pavements... Anyway +/-...

As I got stuck with my rental car for an extra night due to Kings Day, I needed a hotel with parking. It's bare bones at this place. Beds come up to about knee level. The staff was nice. Location was out of the way. Takes about 45mins to get to the Central station from here. Not much in the... More

We stayed here for New Years and were somewhat accommodated to a last minute stay after an error was made during the booking. By somewhat I mean expensive. Nonetheless they were able to get us a room =). Overall the rooms were clean and staff was friendly. We had a double twin room and those beds were SMALL. I'm 5'1''... More

This hotel is a bit far from nearest metro station and is placed at a isolated location. You won't feel anything Amsterdamish here....just OK room...not very good lifts.. The only pros might be that it is economical ( doñ't know the details since our tour agent booked this as a part of package).
