“Great if you are on a budget or don't need luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

If you are sightseeing in Amsterdam, know you are going to be late in town and just want somewhere to spend the night, then this is the hotel for you. Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff are pleasant and welcoming. It is very close to the airport, although I actually went by car I expect public transport to the area to be readily available. Highly recommended, I would use it again if I went to Amsterdam

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

We booked this as it was very close to the airport as we were arriving from Thailand (11 hour flight) but we did not hear a plane once, which was brilliant, we felt like we were the only ones here. The shuttle bus was on time and we did not have to wait. The staff are very friendly and the room was comfortable. Clean sheets and comfy beds. We stayed for 3 nights and used the shuttle bus to the airport to catch the train into the centre of Amsterdam, the shuttle runs every half hour to and from the airport and the trains into Amsterdam run regularly and cost 4 euros. So if you do not want to stay in a very expensive hotel in Amsterdam and do not mind a little bit of travelling then this is a good alternative to some of those overpriced hotels. The bathroom could do with a rethink as the floor gets soaking wet.

Room Tip: Room 87 - no noise

This hotel is close to Amsterdam Airport and is reasonably priced. The rooms are not fancy but clean and staff are excellent. The airporter bus is also great - we left our luggage there in the am and went to the Rijksmuseum for the day by taking the shuttle to the airport, the train to Amsterdam, and then reverse.

This hotel was chosen on price & location near Schipol, so why would one complain?
It was a rainy day, we arrived early & were accommodated without issue.
Birthday, so did not eat @ the hotel but a more celubrious place Den Burgh then stopped for a drink @ the hotel bar before hitting the hay.
The meals coming out of the kitchen looked very good & plentiful. The plates were coming back empty & that says something positive.
We checked out breakfast & it also looked quite good standard hotel buffet style food. Having been on a 23 day river cruise before Amsterdam we had had enough of that style cooking & thought we would do better @ the airport....we were wrong.
There was quite a bit of noise during the night with late arrivals as we were located just off the hotel entrance/lobby, the room was clean with basic furniture & an ancient 17" TV flat screen.
You get what you pay for & around Schipol airport this hotel should be considered fair value.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the lobby enterancecarea

Located about 10 km from Schipol, Bastion Hotel offers everything that one requires in an overnight pit-stop, in between busy work days:
i) decent breakfast
ii) very clean, decent sized rooms (largish for Europe)
iii) decent food
iv) considerate service.
Nothing is excellent except for the value which was amazing - Euro 74 including breakfast - can't be beat.

Room Tip: Insist on rooms on the ground floor (Ist floor in US terminology) as the hotel does not have an elev...

this hotel is in my view an average hotel, the staff are very pleasant and very helpful they give good advice and seem to work long hours.The hotel is about 3km away from the airport on the edge of a small town this can be a problem because most of the large cities such as Amsterdam, haarlem and the hague are reached by train from the airport ,however there is a regular free shuttle to and from the airport which picks up and drops off at the hotel entrance.the rooms in the hotel are quite small with ensuite facilities and are kept clean and tidy there is a kettle and fridge in the room and tea/coffee provided for brewing up.The room we stayed in seemed to be opposite the one that staff used to take their breaks in so there was a door opening and banging shut quite regularly, the beds were long and not bad comfort wise, again these were clean and tidy, The rooms have a tv in them.....only small but not a problem for a short stay,outside the hotel is a motorway to various destinations but it is far enough away not to be a problem with traffic noise, there didn't seem to be many local facilities such as pubs and restaraunts but there is a tennis centre right next door to the hotel.I would recommend this hotel to people that are not bothered about a bit of travel disruption or to those who prefer a bit of peace and quiet away from the city centres.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the one that staff use for their breaks.

Basic and OK as an overnight location. However, beware the shuttle. There is a two stage shuttle from the Bastion to the Best Western and then a change to get to Schiphol. Twice in three trips I ended up with a wait of 20 minutes+ at the connection so a trip that you would think would take 12-15 minutes, took 45+. Probably safer and more reliable to take a public bus!
When I complained about it at reception, I was told that "Yes, it used to be good, but we need more written complaints". An unusual concept in staff complaint handling and customer service.
