This hotel is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed at first of all il start with my experience.
me and my partner booked a 5 day trip to amsterdam in August and found this hotel on clever hotels to put us up for 4 nights. However when we got there they told us that there was no booking for us, after hours of searching they found out that this companyhad went into liquidation. We had received no email or phone call to tell us this and we where stuck in a country we have never been to before with no where to stay. To make it worse this hotel was fully booked. Luckily after hours of phoning hotels (to find them fully booked too) bastion hotel was able to make arrangements with us where we could stay there for the four nights. Although there was a charge this wasn't their fault. The woman at reception was fantastic with us, putting us first, translating phone calls that we couldn't understand and constantly on the phone to head office begging them to help us. Not many hotels would go out of their way to do that for us!
Onto the hotel, the room are gorgeous, very spacious and extremely clean. Maids come every morning and will even phone later on to see if you want your room cleaned if they couldn't get in previously. There is a kettle and working fridge in the hotel free of charge, however the safe does have a charge (all hotels charge though)
There is a smoking area in the hotel(tobacco only obviously) and a bar that serves till 11.
I cannot comment on the breakfast which is served from 6-10 because we never ate it but I did hear it was lovely.
It isn't in amsterdam centre but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel (number 32 or 33 to centre) which run from 6-12 every ten minutes then a bus (361 or 363) from midnight-6am, the bus takes 10 mins so is very close to the centre and a day ticket is 7.50 euro so cheap and that can be used on the trams too.
I would highly highly recommend this hotel to anyone, it's slightly on the expensive side at just over 100 pound per night, but it is worth it!
