The first time I used the Bastion Group, was when I was booking a hotel in Amsterdam. I have made the reservation by telephone. Nowadays I book my hotels through their website. But phone was fine. I got a friendly lady on the phone and they arranged it all just fine for me within the hour I received a fax confirming my reservation. LocationLocated on the west side of Amsterdam next to the motorway. The lady sent me a fax with directions and it was actually quite easy to find. According to the information you were close to the center of Amsterdam. But my experience is that this rather disappointing. You have to walk to the tram and then you have several stops by tram to r...Read More

Hotel | "Tulip inn city west"

Last year I spent a week at this hotel.LocationThe Tulip Inn City West, the name says it all, is located in Amsterdam-West and that's not the best location as a tourist. To the center of Amsterdam, you have to walk first 5-10 minutes to the tram 17 and then it takes about 30 minutes to get to the city center. In addition, the Osdorp district, where the Tulip Inn City West is located, has not the best reputation.

In the room were several facilities, including a TV, a kettle with a...Read More

At the hotel, you see at your right the Restaurant De Roode Leeuw. The doormat in the lounge also has a lion from the Dutch arms. Well found, I say. I had the information describing the hotel and that it had a special restaurant. I must say it looked classy. This restaurant is also breakfast in the morning.ReceptionWhen we arrived at the reception there was nobody around. But just a ring with the bell and a friendly word to us. The staff I met was very hospitable. The lounge itself is really quite small. There is a bench and a table in a corner and that's it! In the window you will find some information about nearby attractions.The hotelI will immediat...Read More
