The bed is so soft i may as well have slept on a pile fo cushions so i slept very poorly. In hot weather the room was uncomfortably hot, and there is no air conditioning or fan available. I... More

High 20s and humid. No aircon in rooms. Window open. Eaten alive by mosquitos! Sweaty and tormented. Shame as great location and friendly staff. I would however visit again when not summer and had repellent with me. Be prepared.

Was put in a room facing the street and bar, realised this and asked to be moved, as I had stated on the booking, for a "quiet room"....was told they were "fully booked"...bar was very very noisy. (Was told by the chef, "if I didn't like the noise they would call the police and get the bar shut".....30 minutes to... More

We really enjoyed the hotel. Problem there is no parking . In summer on the weekend leave your windows closed. Lots of noise from all the people on the street. Breakfast is good and there is always enough.

Stayed her on a business trip, overall it was a nice hotel with individual designed rooms. However was lacking in little details although I was supposed to be in a superior room there was no kettle or coffee maker and the duvet on the bed was so thin I had to put the one from the other bed on top....

Unfortunately the weather was very bad when I visited Alkmaar and it was in the middle of the week, so when I arrived at the hotel it was dark, wet and quiet. It is situated in the old centre near shops, restaurants and even a cinema all within easy walking distance. It looked very nice and I hope I get... More

This hotel is situated in the city centre of Alkmaar with direct access to restaurants, the cinema and the pubs. The hotel is located in in an old post office which has been used as inspiration for all the decorating in the hotel and the name of the restaurant. The rooms are modern decorated and of good quality. But I... More

The Grand Hotel in Alkmaar is a comfortable, well situated hotel in the old part of town, and an easy walk to everything of note. It has been renovated and extended, and is now quite modern. The hotel has a great bar area, and a large breakfast room. Unfortunately the breakfast wasn't that "grand" as the hot foods and coffee... More

I stayed on Thursday night before the cheese market is held. During the season, a traditional cheese market is being held at Waagplein on Friday morning. I booked a deluxe double room, but maybe that has been upgraded to Superior double with courtesy of the hotel. It was quite large room facing the Gedempte Nieuwesloot, and was bright with three...

We hadn't been here for 4 years so tried it again.The entrance is very scruffy and you have to struggle through all the smokers standing inside the entrance. There is also a big bin at the door always overflowing with rubbish. We paid a lot to upgrade to an executive room but it was basic. No dressing gown/slippers/pen/paper/tissues/minibar/iron/board/fan/ac/safe. No view... More
