The staff here are terrific! Very helpful after a few trips back to ask questions like a tourist. The property needs a couple of simple fixes tho. The card keys stop working very easy, the main entrance should be accessible with your room key late at night. The room was small but clean, the washroom is very small. Would stay...

Stayed here for 1 night while I was having a weekend break in Amsterdam. We chose the hotel because of its free parking, which is super handy! My first impression of the hotel was really good, very friendly and welcoming staff at reception, we even got a room at 10AM, which is normally quite unusual in hotels. You even get...

The hotel is ok. Stuff is very helpfull. Breakfast 14€ was a bit pricy for my standards. Parking, free WiFi, close to the highway ring. Good location to park the car and go to Amsterdam city centre by bus.

Great service. I got a free upgrade because a large group was on my floor. Big, clean rooms. Excellent value for money. Was the best price on lastminute for last minute booking. Wasn't sure at first but glad I booked it. A bit out of town but easy regular bus.

Thumbs up for Bastion! Recommended. We have been using different Bastion Hotels around in Amsterdam, and Bastion Hotel Zaandam is the best one. Not very central, a little noise from the road, but nice personal and amazing food in the restaurant. Also there is a Shell store / gas station across the road.

Dear Therese, Thank you for your lovely review. We are very happy to hear about your great experience. Bastion Hotel Zaandam is located a bit far from Amsterdam city centre, but it's close to Zaandam city, a popular tourist attraction. We are looking forward to your next stay at Bastion Hotel Zaandam. With kind regards, Team E-commerce

Reviewed 5 July 2016 via mobile

Lovely hotel , some of the staff where a little snooty which put us of asking for any help with directions or the best sight seeing tours. Zaandam was a little to far from Amsterdam, (40 mins there then 40 mins back) I'd advice anyone to book a hotel in Amsterdam even if it's a little more expensive
