Bastion Hotel Amsterdam Amstel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nothing awful but nothing to entice me back. Firstly the location is difficult unless you have your own transport. Reasonable walks to 3 metro stations by even though it is only 500m from one it turns out to be a 1.2km walk. So close to the train lines that if you have an even numbered room then you will here them. Check-in ok albeit a little slow. Room usual Bastion but with a very small bathroom - dark and dingy too. Beds ok but it is as if the sheets don’t fit and they are always almost off the bed by morning. Lastly, air con on and you’ll get the smell of cigarettes through the vents even though the rooms are no smoking

I stayed here to visit Amsterdam on a birthday trip. It is a comfortable and clean hotel. There was a fridge, coffee machine and hairdryer in the room. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from overamstel metro station. This hotel is situated near a busy A road, the hotel felt as though it would be better for people if they were driving, it did feel strange crossing a busy road to walk to the station. Although situated on a busy road, we were not disturbed by any noise and were able to get a peaceful nights sleep for each of the 3 nights that we stayed.

great experience, easy to access by public transportation or even by taxi from the center. clean, great reception, confortable beds. the only issue is you can hear the trains in the morning if your room is next to the train line and if you have a light sleep.

Good hotel, nice atmosphere, the employees are friendly and welcoming. However, if you need to use the public transport system, you should head for Overamstel station, not Amstel station as it's written on a map that the hotel provides. Amstel is far, far away. Also, please make sure that you know how to reach there since there are no signs in the street and it's a not typical walking district.

“A pleasant experience, very professional staff and excellent value for the money 💰 so keep your eyes on the ball ⚽️ and I’ll keep coming back.. also I would love to get some information on your other hotels so I can stay with you more often!!

The hotel is not bad. 15min from city center, free car park, good restaurant. BUT, train line 50m away from your window. Makes it really noisy all night long. I reccomand you choose an other Bastion if Bastion is what you want.

Very good hotel with nice look and close to public transportation. It will take you about 20 minutes to get to Amsterdam Central from this location. The staff in general was helpful except for one guy who would not help me with the card at the elevator - in the end I had to bring my luggage upstairs using the stairs.

about 20 miles frm centre, 60euro each way in taxi, rooms not clean and staff are terrible not interested...will not stay here again, booked 2 rooms and paid in full, wish i never because we only ended up staying 1 night and leaving next morn..... cancelled the rest of weekend and went into town to book another hotel to finish our stay. staff werent even interested at all, wouldnt give a refund either!!!! im complaining to Expedia and all other sites that have this hotel.... I am also going to put this review and pictures up on facebook!!!!! Even if they offered half money back I would of accepted, but offered nothing and just gave us a funny look....

I chose this hotel since it has free parking and is fairly close to the Amsterdam University where I needed to go the next day, and I must say it wasn't a nice experience. My room was on the 2nd floor, facing the highway and the rails. So every passing train was pretty load, same goes for the highway traffic. I honestly thought in the beginning the windows must be open due to the noise. And talking about windows, they a screwed shut, which is OK, but they have a draft. So if you sit at the built-in desk in front of the window you are sitting in a constant draft. The solution offered was a second towel to block the draft. Changing the room was not possible because the Hotel was booked out. There is no hairdryer in the room, which is kind of surprising. Calling reception (btw, the numer is #9, it's not written anywhere) I was told I need to pick it up downstairs, it can't be brought up. So if there is a line of people checking out, you have to wait. And just on a small side note, I forgot my tooth brush in the previous hotel (my mistake, I know), but Bastion completely ran out. I know this can happen, but it was for me the final reason to avoid this chain in the future. It might be unfair to judge Bastion from one bad experience, but if there are other hotels to choose from I don't see a reason to go with someone I had a pleasant experience with.

The staff were friendly and can communicate in English fluently.Downside of the hotel:bed was far too low,for those of you with rhematic knee pain not good. No bath in the bathroom just a shower. No good drainage in the bathroom for the water to easily go away, nothing could be done because it's a busy hotel,I think it's the building system. I would advise the management to use a white quilt instead of a brown quilt. Never used mine because it may hide stains due to the colour. The room is ok. Management should endeavour to ask the cleaner to change the bedsheet daily. I spent three days no bedsheet was changed. In the room there was a telephone,a safe,a free WiFi which was an advantage to the guest. Finally an indoor swimming pool,free shuttle every 15mins to Amsterdam Airport.From Airport you can connect buses,and trains to the city. Hotel is about 10 mins to Schipol Airport. I would stay again when next I visit Amsterdam on a short visit.
