“short stay in Bastion Haarlem”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

Myself and some friends stayed in this hotel, not by choice as we were changed from our booked hotel which was the Bastion in Amsterdam. People were disappointed to find the hotel so far from Amsterdam and no facilities in the hotel. The room and the bed was very small. No room for suitcases and the bathroom was tiny. We got an upgrade for a small extra charge, which was better. We had no cups provided in the room though there was a kettle and tea and coffee available. There was no remote control for the TV and we were unable to turn it on. In spite of requesting this, it wasnt provided. On our arrival we were dismayed to find the outside was like a building site with machinery all around. The rubbish bins were at the front door. There was no available meals in the hotel on the evening we arrived. We travelled into Amsterdam by coach for dinner and returned to the hotel at 11.15 pm to be told that the bar was closed and there was no residents bar. The computer in the reception area was out of order. There was a pool table and a game machine in the reception area which was also the dining area. The hotel staff were very rude and unhelpful, when we arrived, though I must say that guests were also very unhappy with facilities in the hotel. The breakfasts were good and the staff friendly on both mornings of our stay. We checked the menu for dinner on the second evening, but this was very limited, so we walked to a small village nearby and found a wenderful restaurant. We didnt book directly with the hotel, but through an agent and were informed the hotel was four star.

Room Tip: book a deluxe room in the new part of the hotel

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2005

We stayed at the Bastion for three nights. Breakfast buffet was a bit expensive. McDonald's was next door so we had breakfast there. The shower for the bathroom was a nozzle extending from the wall with a shower curtain. There was no enclosed area for the shower so the whole bathroom floor was constantly wet.

Bus stop was within walking distance and took us directly to the train station.

Basically, this was a place to rest our heads and not to spend too much time in. The price was reasonable for quality of the hotel.
