We stayed for three nights with our dog. The building is beautiful and the rooms are nicely decorated. There are no parking spots at the hotel and since parking is very expensive I would recommend using one of the car parks in Alkmaar. The employees are friendly but unfortunately in our first night/ day there was only one person in... More

We stayed on the second floor overlooking the street in an attic room with sloping windows. No safe or mini bar as stated.Supermarket nearby and very close to the main square. We were lucky enough to be there on a Friday when they have the Cheese Market. This is great to watch but very repetetive. A must to see in... More

I staid many times at the Grand Hotel Alkmaar, tried most rooms. If you can be upgraded some bigger rooms offer great extra like private sauna etc... The hotel, former Post office, has been renovated with a lot of taste. Only disappointment is the breakfast... no fresh fruit juice.. Great restaurants all around the place, very cental location, in a... More

We have just spent the weekend at this hotel. It is in fact the old Post Office in a very central position and convenient for restaurants, shops and the station. The hotel is perfectly adequate with a good choice of continental breakfast and nicely appointed rooms. Our room was open plan and rather quirky with a large bath behind the... More

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The hotel is a bit outdated and the room was a bit worn down.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
