TravelPod Member ReviewsBastion Hotel Schiphol/Hoofddorp
This was a good choice for my first visit to Amsterdam. It was near the airport but a little out of the way. The price was right for 3 nights, so that definitely was a huge incentive for staying here. The train ride in was easy but expensive. The shuttle takes you to and from the airport but you have to time it right. The drivers are not the most friendly but I just kill them with kindness and it helps a little. I'd stay here again, just because it's familiar and the rate is so reasonable, especially in Amsterdam.

I had a good nights rest. We were up and out of the door by 6:45. We had a coffee and snack on the ferry. The subway ride was quick and easy to the airport.

First, let me (Grant) say that driving in Slovenia and Croatia was not terrible. It was, however, stressful in spots. On cars We had two: a Peugeot and a Ford Focus.

We're only in the area for two nights, and we fly out to Pisa at 06:00 Thursday, 25 June. Paul works super early, and has offered to give us a ride to the ...
... down the glass windows on the canal boat. On the audio guided tour, we learned of the history of Amsterdam, which honestly was pretty dry especially from an automated voice. However, we learned and saw of the many leaning or swaying homes running parallel to the canals. The narrow homes were built on soft soil, sand, and peat, which has allowed the houses to sink and sag to the side. After the tour, we had a much needed breakfast and cappuccino to recharge us. "Pancakes" are ...
... back to the hostel. Tash packed her bags and gave me a parting gift of doing my hair in the most pretty updo! The girl we shared a room with had also happened to eat a space cake while my hair was being done (why I will never know, especially when she hadn't eaten anything all day) and then was convinced I was a princess and was in hysterics. I quite liked the title of being a princess, but kind of sad that someone had to ...
