“great stay, close to train station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Nice stay, clean and right in front of train station. However, you may hear train run by once in a while depending on where your room faces. I didn't notice it much myself. The hotel was a comfortable stay. Keep in mind it cost about $4-5 one way to take train to central amsterdam and same amount coming back to hotel which should be factor into total cost per day if u plan to travel out to central amsterdam each day. Otherwise, a great stay.

Bastion Hotels are generally low cost but perfectly comfortable. This one in Bussum Zuid is right next to the railway station (though you wouldn't know it from inside - no sound). There's not much to see within walking distance of the hotel, but there is a beautiful heathland for long walks. Makes for a much better choice than the overpriced hotel accommodation in Hilversum. Friendly staff. Free wifi. Now that makes a change from hotels in Amsterdam.

I have to say the staff were amazing. From a very friendly greeting through to great table service. The chef can also cook one damn fine steak!

The room was basic but it has everything that was required. Another plus side was the free wifi which enabled me to continue my work back in the office.

Will be going back next month on business and will be staying here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I stayed there for one night on a business trip. They had a private, secured parking lot, very clean and nice rooms and the breakfast was excellent. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I arrived quite late in the evening and the girl still offered to make me a dinner. I would stay there again if I ever would need to be in Bussum. With the train station next to the hotel you have a good connection with Amsteradam. Maybe even a good place to stay if visiting Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Ask a room at the otherside of the building (from the train station). But the hotel is very quite so...

Found this one just using Google. All is ok, but staff is much more friendly than other hotels. They run the extra mile, which is really appreciated. All with a smile, aimed to please. I will surely be back!

Small family style hotel in approach. Room big enough, bathroom simple but sufficient. Breakfast okay. Clean hotel. Lots of free parking. Next to the trainstation: ideal for tourists who want to use the train to explore Holland. Staff is friendly but not too experienced. Good for a few nights though!
