“Off Broadway but Not Off Tune.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

In quiet location and - as long as you accept you won’t be in the heart of Amsterdam - this is a good place to stay at. There’s a regular bus service in to the middle of Amsterdam which takes about ten minutes. The hotel has a fairly good restaurant and, (like anywhere), provided you don’t want to eat there every night, it’s fine. Staff are friendly / helpful so, all in all, would have no qualms about staying there again.

We stayed here in early June for a few nights. The hotel is in a quiet location, the rooms were small and very basic. The door of the bathroom is very heavy and wouldnt stay open, which made the bathroom very steamy as soon as you turned the shower on.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a bus stop 2mins from the hotel and the bus goes straight to Amsterdam Centraal which is only an 8min bus ride away.

Overall it is a good hotel if you arent planning on spendong much time in the room.

We stayed here for one night in January 2014. The booking from Germany was without problems.
During the week it can be hard to find a parking lot.
The room was clean. There were two separate beds, but you can put them together like we did.
There was no breakfast included.
Right in front of the hotel is a bus stop. It is easy to use and you should take the bus, if you want to go to the city; the parking in the city is really expensive.
The neighborhood is calm and safe. Right beside the hotel is a police station.
We would stay here again.

We stayed for four nights on a shoestring budget. We used the little fridge to store our "supplies" bought at a nearby supermarket. The kettle in the room was also much appreciated. The hotel is very near to public transportation routes and as tourists it was easy to go into the city and to Amstel Station. The location is quiet with no heavy traffic at night. Our room was fairly big and the bathroom had two basins. Highly recommended.

not much to say about this place.

It's got a decent bus shuttle service, rooms are simple and clean but there is little in terms of pampering e.g. the complimentary bathroom supplies are so small they may as well be none existent.

Internet is acceptable and there is a good range of TV channels available for free.

I got a very good rate and would say I got value for money. Although when I inquired about late checkout I was quoted 30 euros for 4 hours!! I only paid 44 for the night!

If you want to spend time around the main areas of Amsterdam choose something central, if you need somewhere for a night before/between flights then this is a good low cost option.

Room Tip: Windows do not open at all, bring your own Shower Gel/Shampoo

The Hotel is located outside the city center but well connected through public transportation directly to the central station. Like all the other Bastion Hotels, it's clean and perfect for a business trip. Rooms are quite small and there is nothing "fancy" in the hotel, but the price is usually low, there is wifi connection everywhere and a parking slot.
