Thumbs up for Bastion! Recommended. We have been using different Bastion Hotels around in Amsterdam, and Bastion Hotel Zaandam is the best one. Not very central, a little noise from the road, but nice personal and amazing food in the restaurant. Also there is a Shell store / gas station across the road.

Lovely hotel , some of the staff where a little snooty which put us of asking for any help with directions or the best sight seeing tours. Zaandam was a little to far from Amsterdam, (40 mins there then 40 mins back) I'd advice anyone to book a hotel in Amsterdam even if it's a little more expensive

Dear Sue E, Thank you for your message. We're delighted to hear you have enjoyed your stay at our hotel. Like you already mentioned, hotel Zaandam is not that close to Amsterdam city. It takes 30-45 minutes to get to the center, especially with public transport. My colleagues are always happy to provide our guests correct transport and sightseeing details.... More

I have been staying in large and small hotels in the Netherlands over the last forty - fifty years. And I can't remember being disappointed one single time.

I stayed for business trip. Food, room and free parking were good. However, staffs in the reception was not kind for a foreigner. They smiled a cynical smile. Also, Wifi was terrible, completely weak signal, slow and automatically disconnected while Wifi was in use.

Oldfashioned hotelroom, not clean, poor bed, shower and badroom at end of life cycle. I have never slept so bad for such a high rate. I am happy that I only booked for 1 day. Breakfast too expensive for what Bastion offer their quests.Only good is location and enough parking places.

It is a fine hotel in its category. Surprisingly quiet to be so close to a main road. The service is OK, the rooms are comfortable and most importantly very clean.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback and for booking with us. It is good to read that you have both enjoyed Amsterdam as Zaandam. Probably due to the centralized location of the hotel you were able to both see the Zaanse Schans as the streets of Amsterdam during your stay! We hope to welcome you again soon!... More
