“Main reason for visiting ceased to exist”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

In the past we stayed regularly in this hotel, parking our car there for a few days while traveling from Schiphol Airport. Suddenly that is no longer possible, not even at extra cost and since this change only appeared in the small print it was a very nasty last minute surprise. I see little reason to go to this hotel any more in future since parking was their main attraction. The neighborhood has nothing pleasant, the hotel itself is rather standard so there are better places to go next time.

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for your review regarding the Best Western Amsterdam Airport Hotel. Indeed, it is only possible to park your car while you stay at the hotel. It is not possible (anymore) to leave your car on the parking when you have already checked-out the hotel.

This is written on every website, so we are sorry that this wasn't what you have expected.

However our Bastion Hotel Schiphol Hoofddorp offers a park, sleep and fly arrangement. This offers you an overnight stay with 21 days of parking for a special price. Maybe this is what you have seen and expected it to be?

With kind regards,

Team of the Bastion Hotel Groep

I stayed here for 2 nights for a business trip. The staff was very friendly and did everything to make my stay as pleasant as possible. The hotel itself is very mediocre. It looks like the hotel is in the middle of a refurbishment because it is a best western but everything in the hotel reads Bastion hotel: logo's on the staff outfit, adds, etc. The bar did not have matching glasses for the beers they offer. They did not have whiskey glasses. The restaurant is not very cosy, it's a functional room to have dinner. The food was very good but served on ice cold plates. An absolute selling point is the swimming pool with sauna for free.
All in all a nice hotel for one or two nights but do not expect wonders.

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for the review which you have posted on Tripadvisor.
As we can see you have experienced the personal atmosphere, hospitality, comfort and good facilities of Bastion Hotel Groep and you have summarized it in a great review!

Indeed, it is a Best Western hotel, however it is under the management of the Bastion Hotel Groep. The central places of the hotel are modernized, so that is why it was a little chaotic. We are really sorry and we hope it didn't bothered you too much.

We are looking forward to welcome you again in one of our hotels!

With kind regards,

Team Bastion Hotel Groep

Stayed here for one night while traveling in Holland. Considerably cheaper than central Amsterdam hotels. Easy shuttle bus connection after dropping off my hire car, then easy to return to the airport and connect with Amsterdam Centraal by train.
Would have scored more highly but the room was not that clean, lots of dust, fluff and things you would rather not think about around the skirting boards and under the beds. Breakfast very average.
You can get aircraft noise at night as some reviews say... Schipol is the 4th busiest hub in Europe, what do you expect! To be fair the windows in the room were pretty good and noise was not a problem.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on overnight stops both ways to and from Tanzania from New York. Both times, we found it a welcome oasis from two 8.5 hour back-to-back flights, with clean rooms, very friendly staff, pleasant restaurant, and a punctual free shuttle that took us to and from the airport (a 10 minute drive) every half hour. We paid less than $100 per night, and for that cost, we really couldn't ask for more!

We chose this hotel primarily based on location and price. We went with an option that did not include breakfast. For the significantly lower price, we could easily eat somewhere else cheaper.

The airport shuttle worked out very well. It travels to/from the airport every 30 minutes.

The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.

The exercise room looked OK with an elliptical and treadmill, but it didn't appear to have any upper-body equipment.

Good value for the price.

Clean room but not hot water. Bar no good service and not clean. Expensive prices for coffee and water. Nice transfer to airport every 30 minutes. Generally is an economic hotel but I will not visit again.
