Haarlem is a gem. And the carlton was as well. Didn't eat in restaurant or bar. But, the room and service was great. Rented their bike which were very comfortable and smooth. The location was excellent and near all sites. We really loved Haarlem. Such a nice break from Amsterdam which is crazy hectic.

If you want be out of the Amsterdam city for some quietness than come to this hotel. It's 30 min out of Amsterdam. The hotel is average with clean rooms and average service. The hotel is a little outdated. It's a very popular breakfast and dinner for locals from the vicinity.

It's a reasonable hotel for the family. It is adjacent to Haarlem, which is a quaint area with all the basic and more amenities. A quiet holiday experience and not too far from Central Amsterdam. The lobby and ground floor could do with a serious renovation, which will improve its present star status. I would visit it again provided my... More

In the attention of the management team: Dear Sir/ Madam, I am currently staying at this hotel, but since nobody from the management team has been available, I am writing to you here. As a manager it would be efficient to actually be in the hotel in case a client has something to say strictly to the management team. To... More

We stayed here for five nights. It is a very easy walk to the centre of Haarlem and very spacious. Staff very efficient and helpful. The breakfast was good value. The air conditioner in our first room was not very effective and we were upgraded to a bigger room. The air conditioner still struggled to cope with the mid summer... More

The hotel is ideally located for exploring Haarlem which is a very pretty place. The staff were very welcoming, the room was spotless and big. Especially enjoyed the complimentary chocolates, thank you. And the bed was just the best ever. Plenty of choice at breakfast and some excellent coffee. Can't comment on the restaurant as we ate out at night.... More

I am usually very skeptical about hotels and their pictures in Europe. This was such a gem . The staff were so friendly. Room was big and luxurious. Free bar for me :) I really liked the decor . The most comforting hotel I have ever stayed
