I stayed for business trip. Food, room and free parking were good. However, staffs in the reception was not kind for a foreigner. They smiled a cynical smile. Also, Wifi was terrible, completely weak signal, slow and automatically disconnected while Wifi was in use.

Oldfashioned hotelroom, not clean, poor bed, shower and badroom at end of life cycle. I have never slept so bad for such a high rate. I am happy that I only booked for 1 day. Breakfast too expensive for what Bastion offer their quests.Only good is location and enough parking places.

It is a fine hotel in its category. Surprisingly quiet to be so close to a main road. The service is OK, the rooms are comfortable and most importantly very clean. The public transport system is so well developed in Amsterdam and area that there is not much problem with living a bit outside the city. The Wi-Fi is good...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback and for booking with us. It is good to read that you have both enjoyed Amsterdam as Zaandam. Probably due to the centralized location of the hotel you were able to both see the Zaanse Schans as the streets of Amsterdam during your stay! We hope to welcome you again soon!...

Staff were very friendly and food was amazing. Twin room was adequate and included a safe. Me & my friend stayed here for Amsterdam Dance Event as we booked our hotel last minute and this was the cheapest option. Location was not the best. However there was a bus stop right outside with regular buses in and out of Amsterdam....
