We stayed for one awful night in mid July. There were mosquito's in the room which meant a sleepless night. The pillows were not pillows just cases stuffed with foam and the breakfast inedible. It gets worse - I raised these points by emailing the manager - a Tony Vos - after paying the €100 bill and guess what? Yes,... More

Great place, park down the street at De Vest, 15 Euro a night. Centrally located, couldn't ask for more. Do make sure if they give you a room on the front, or a room with windows on Schutterspassage, that you ask for another room if you wish to sleep. There is a bar, the Concurrence, which stays open very late... More

Room was a bit strange as bath was behind the bed with a separate shower room. Thankfully the toilet was situated off the hall leading to the room. Once used to the arrangement the room was kept clean and was big enough for the 3 of us. Excellent coffee making facilities and breakfast was OK but not much variety. As... More

The hotel is a bit outdated and the room was a bit worn down. A lot of noise from the pubs on the outside of our room. Friendly staff with a great atmosphere. Good breakfast. Safe storage for bicycles.

I was travelling with my two young daughters for the International children's games in Alkmaar. We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and I would definitely recommend it. It is in the heart of the city and everything is within walking distance. The hotel itself is charming and the breakfast room was lovely and the choices were great. The... More

A beautiful little hotel near the centre of Alkmaar, with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. The room was spacious and clean. All tourist sites were within walking distance in this quaint city, with all its history. No parking at the hotel, but parking garage nearby, albeit rather expensive. Nothing to do with the hotel, but the nearby cheese museum was... More

Great hotel. We had a large corner room that had a great bath and separate shower. The hotel is 2 minutes from the Friday cheese market and all the wonderful shops of Alkmaar which are not to be missed. The shopping is wonderful and unique. I spent way too much money in Alkmaar. The hotel breakfasts are good, though is... More

Overpriced and not good value for money. Breakfast has limited variety considering the price of the room. Central location. Friendly staff. ..................................................................................

The hotel is perfectly located within the main shopping street yet quiet. Enjoyed the elevator experience. Sneeking through the hallway I found rooms with a coffee machine. Bit disappointed our room wasn't provided with a coffee machine. Bathroom is spacious but missing cupboards eg for own bathroom supplies.

I had stayed in Grand Hotel Alkmaar already last year and as it was a very positive experience this April when I again travelled to Alkmaar I decided to come back. Alas... on arriving to the hotel in the evening me and my colleague were told that there was no reservation, upon further checks it appeared that the reservation was... More
