“Okay hotel, but one really terrible woman at reception.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

When I arrived at the hotel to check in I was "greeted" by the most rude woman at reception. She was very abrupt and rough. Luckily the room was decent so that helped. I had to deal with this woman twice and both times were extremely unpleasant. Also the morning of check out, a rapid knock at the door woke me and it was the cleaning service asking when I planned to check out. I hope that is not standard practice here. The room was big and quiet and clean enough. Too bad the staff was so lousy.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This hotels has a very good quality/price ratio.
The food is average, there are better places in Rotterdam for your dinner.
The breakfast is ok, not generous but enough.
The rooms are great, clean, air-co, nice bathroom.
So, not luxurious but surely enough.
The only drawback is no public transport and far away from Rotterdam.

Room Tip: Ask for third floor or higher, first and second are noisy.

Stayed here for one big after attending a conference. Rooms were large and clean however some of my collegues were complaining that their windows were not opening but I had no issue so this as mine was ok. I did have a problem with a flooded bathroom when. Had a shower as the drain was blocked but as it was so late I did not call housekeeping for a fix.
Free wifi was also included as well as a breakfast so this was an added bonus however I did thi k that the rate was quite high but it may have been due to the conference.

The Bastion on this location is a 'deluxe' which is expressed in better rooms than the other Bastions. Rooms are rather small, but good, bathrooms are good, and although the hotel is next to the highway there is absolutely no traffic noise in the rooms.
The restaurant is average, breakfast is good.
Staff is very friendly and efficient. Parking is in front of the hotel and free. Wifi is free in the hotel.
