Bastion Hotel Amsterdam Zuidwest

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room is nice, staff is very professional and friendly and happy to help you with anything, breakfast decent and overall facilities quite elegant. Hotel's style is mostly like a motel and and it is quite far from the center, but it is easy to get to the tram station with 5-6 minutes of walking.

Stayed overnight on a business trip , hotel is fairly basic but good value for where you are - easy access to centre by tram or taxi , small but fun bar , food was really good - staff very friendly and helpful

My sister and I stayed in this hotel for a weekend break. The room was lovely and the general hotel was of a good standard. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a 10 minute walk to the tram stop and then 10 minutes into the centre so fairly easy. It would be helpful to have a map to walk the 10 minutes from the train station (when you come from the airport) to the hotel although we did pick up signs after the first turn. This hotel is cheaper as it's in the middle of nowhere but it was lovely and quiet for sleeping and felt safe walking back from the tram at night.

Only reason we decided to stay here is because it's close to my son's university accommodation. Wish we had opted for somewhere else. It is situated in a grim part of the city. The rooms are small and characterless. Shower was OK-ish, but in a tiny bathroom. Sleep quality was OK. Front desk service is cordial and polite. The room price was high compared to what you got, so not good value-for-money. Next time we shall we staying elsewhere.

Can't go wrong for the price, very friendly and polite staff and a nice clean room. Only reason it lost 1 star is due to the fact the TV is pretty much useless to English people. There is 1 channel that's English and its discovery, not to best thing to watch. Would recommend this hotel and I will be back if they ever fix the TV with more English channels.

Bastion hotel is about 30 mins on the bus away from Amsterdam central. There is a bus every half hour that runs until 1am. €5 there and €5 back. Beds were so comfy. Hotel room was clean and tidy. Towels and sheets changed regularly. Perfect for couples. Breakfast at the hotel was quite pricey coming to €30 for the two of us. There was a €18 fee before we even got to our room which everyone has to pay. Friendly staff always willing to help.

room was small but nice however when we went out for the day i had £350 in sterling stolen from our room when i reported to reception she said manager wouldnt be in till monday and she was not very helpfull but hey ho manager appeared the next day not monday and was very apologetic but because it was in my bag and not in the safe there was nothing i could do about it he gave us free breakfast and that was it even though he knew it would have been a staff member that had taken the money this hotel is nearer the airport than the centre of amsterdam and despite its saying 20 min walk from centre its a 3 hour walk and taxi is 39 euros in my opinion dont go to this hotel as its not very nice not being able to trust the staff that cleans the room i am disabled and couldnt afford to loose this kind of money i not only wouldnt go back to this hotel i will never go back to amsterdam its put me well off of this place

I would recommend this hotel for visitors to Amsterdam. 5 star service. The hotel manager Chris and staff are a perfect example of how quests should be treated. The hotel is 5 minutes from the tram. The staff are very knowledgeable about the city and events. Super clean rooms, small but nice and quiet. Thanks all for the great service.

We stayed in the hotel for a weekend with a friend. We booked last minute and the price was a bargain, so the value for money was good! The room itself had a decent size, with cozy bathroom. The aircondition fan was really noisy and there were no light bulb in the entrance of the room. The photo wallpaper was a nice touch, we even found the exact spot where the picture from our room was made :) The staff was very friendly and helpful, but I found it a bit irritating that at night you need to wait for the personel to open the front door for you. The tram station is about 5-10min walk from the hotel, but there is no machine to buy a ticket on this stop, so better prepare yourself beforhand.

The only advantage of this hotel is the good location. But the room was smelly and the towels were still dirty and with stains on them, there were also hairs of former guests in washbasin. Considering the price, it was not really recommendable.
