Booked the hotel last minute for a single night.
Disclaimer: Staying at a lovely 5 star hotel in Brussels including breakfast for the same amount of money as the lousy Bastion Hotel, may have influenced this review.
The surroundings are not very charming. A petrol station, a highway and railway tracks with trains frequently passing by... The metro station "Overamstel" is 5 minutes walk. 2.70 Euro for a single ride into Amsterdam. Parking in the city centre is up to 5 Euro per hour.
Stayed in room 220, located next to the elevator in the beginning of a long hallway. Noisy!!! TV did not have any sound. The breakfast was 13.5 Euro, which we did not order.
free parking, rather comfy twin beds, empty minibar, kettle with coffee/tea.
Verdict: ok for a late arrival / early check out, but would not stay here again.
Stayed here with a friend for 2 nights. We decided to book a hotel away from Amsterdam city centre as we were concerned about parking. This hotel provides free parking. The metro is less than less than 10 minutes walk and it takes around 10 minutes on the train. We found it really easy to travel in and out of the city centre.
The room was basic but clean. Had fresh towels both days. Bathroom small but functional. We had breakfast which, was usual buffet style with a reasonable choice. It is not a luxury hotel but we didn't pay luxury prices, we were pleased with what we got and if we return to the area we would definitely consider staying here again.
The hotel is 5-6 stops from the center, located on a quite street about 500m from the nearest metro station. Room was clean, simple but yet very friendly. The hotel itself is very clean, modern and I would say not looking cheap. I payed 100 euros/room without breakfast.
Thank you for the comment placed on tripadvisor. We try to meet the expectations of our guests and I believe we did achieve this. Hopefully we can welcome you again in one of our 31 hotels.

The hotel was crowded but clean and surprisingly noise free. The rooms are Spartan, more in line with a motel than a hotel.
The restaurant, run, run, as far away as possible, the evening we were there it seemed that the bar, kitchen, and waiter services were all done by one overworked receptionist. The food was hot on the outside and frozen on the inside, showing that it was made sometime earlier and put into microwavable portions, the result was a tasteless cold mess for which we were charged EUR35.00 for two. I guess we left EUR34.50 worth of food on the plates, it was totally inedible.
Thank you for the comments which you wrote on Tripadvisor. I am sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. I assure you that I will take appropriate actions in order to improve our services. We regularly train our associates in assuring our perfect service and taking ownership.
I hope you accept my apologies ,

I was very satisfied with this hotel. It's a little far from the City Center, but the metro is 500 meters away (line 51- Overamster station) & you can be in the center within 10-15min. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the staff was nice & the price was very reasonable. My brother & wanted to visit Amsterdam and we were on a tight budget. All the places we looked at closer to the Center of Amsterdam, which were in my price range, were either hostels or hotels with shared bathrooms. The lobby of the hotel is actually very nice & the FREE parking & FREE WiFi is an added BONUS! There is also a fitness center, but I never used it.There was a mini fridge in our room, which we used to store drinks & snacks. There is also an electric kettle & you can make tea or coffee, (which is provided plus cream & sugar). This is by no means so Luxury hotel, but if you are on a budget in Amsterdam, this is perfect. You'll spend enough money partying & sightseeing, you might as well save where you can. I will definitely use this hotel again.
