Bastion Hotel Eindhoven (Eindhoven, Holland)

3 Case Rating


Location

The bastion Eindhoven is located about 2.5 miles from the Eindhoven city centre, about one hour walk away.
Brand new hotel in a pretty dull business park but close to the major highways.

There is nothing to walk to as the area is mostly residential, just a supermarket down the road. The hotel was visited in June 2017, and was brand new.

Room

My room was on the first floor. I requested a higher floor due to building site below but told was only 1st floor operating as hotel was only 6 days old.

However the room was quite spacious & due to being new was very fresh and clean.
Two twin beds with small tables either side. Lighting good with lamps & flexi reading lights attached to bed frame. Plus a back wall light that creates a good mellow atmosphere. There is a old Dutch photo picture behind bed that looks a little haunting with people at the turn of the century.

TV faces bed, nice flat screen with various channels from region including BBC tv.
Small magimix expresso machine on slim desk in front. A relaxing arm chair with foot stall is to the side. Open wardrobes and small safe is offered but not sufficient for a small laptop.

The bathroom is quite spacious with a powerful shower. The hotel only offers a small tube of shampoo simple hotel brand. Towels are quite thin as well.

Overall room is comfortable and new but AC was not working despite digital display so felt warm throughout my stay in Summer, plus windows cannot be opened.

Being new the main door awkwardly screamed like a dying cat every time you close it creating quite an embarrsing noise heard loudly down corridor. It’s a business hotel room but is not that functional, not enough desk space to work on a computer etc.

Facilities

The brand new hotel is still being built, the car park has not even been properly finished.
Lots of building mess gets on your shoes and resulting in dirty public areas. Obviously this will be resolved but perhaps they opened too early.

Free working WIFI in which worked well.

There is a bar and restaurant. Breakfast is fourteen euros in which I felt was extortionate compared to other hotels I have stayed at on his trip so didn’t try.

They also have a smoking lounge, a pool table, a sort of gym offering only two cardio machines.

A pricey vending machine for drinks is offered in lobby where a bottle of water costs nearly three euros.

Staff

Reception staff were mixed, male staff welcome was little unenthusiastic. When asked how far to walk to city, simply told I have no idea I don’t live here. One expects staff to know basic knowledge of how far the centre of city is.

The housekeeping staff are also poorly skilled. Both days got woken up at 8am. First by staff simply walking in room (they don’t have any Do not disturb signs on doors) then 2nd day by shouting down the corridor and hoovering. So one doesn’t need an alarm clock!

Saying that female staff on check-out was concerned about how my stay was and seemed to care by noting these issues down.
