This hotel really sucked. At 175 Euros I expected more. Dark, dingy, old, stinking of tobacco smoke (from the smokers greeting you at the entrance and the huge smoking room with door regularly open). My dining experience was taken up by listening to blue collar workers swearing a lot, a pick of one of the specials that after 20 minutes... More

It's a very good hotel for the price It's next to MacD plus it's own breakfast is not bad for the price Being next to the airport it's convenient if you are flying out … but trip to the city means taking its shuttle to airport and then taking a metro which is a bit time consuming unless you have...

Stayed for one night, not really a tourist hotel, mainly work men staying. Hotel did kept our bags as rooms where not ready. Room was dirty, the carpet had not be vacuumed, there were toe nails are the side of my bed and the carpet was sticky, also the metal leg under the table was filthy. Generally felt dirty.

We had a room in the right side of the hotel, what seemed to be the cheaper side. very loud neighbours were very annoying. After complaining at the reception we got a free update to the left side of the hotel. Very nice room. Breakfast more then sufficient

Good place to stay for one night with easy access to and from the airport. Great restaurant food, a bit pricey, but meals are oversized, so they can be shared. The smoker's lounge was definitely my favorite part. Recommend if traveling on a budget.

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
