Nice Continental breakfast, sausages are European so not to my taste. Food in the hotel is nice. Bar is quiet, but nice for a quick drink before heading out for the evening. Regular stays get you complementary mini bar. Don't be afraid to ask for an upgrade.

An old fashioned hotel in Haarlem, quite far away from the station. The rooms are old fashioned and tatty, the bathrooms need updating. If you get a room with a balcony at the front of the hotel, these can be noisy because youths congregate outside the hotel in the square and make noise, ESP at weekends. On the good side,... More

I stayed here on business for three days, and ate at the restaurant twice. The service was good, and the room was clean and very comfortable. It is pretty close to Schiphol airport. One con is that parking is extra.

Dear Mr Rumley, Thank you for staying at the Carlton Square hotel and we appreciate your nice comments on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately parking is quite expensive in most cities in the Netherlands. We do advise most guests to either travel by public transport or try to park just outside of the city centre to avoid any parking fees. Haarlem does offer... More

Was initially disappointed at distance from Amsterdam (4 train stops) but quickly realised this was a lovely town and a really nice comfortable hotel - best bed and pillow for ages! Will definitely recommend people stay here if visiting Amsterdam as this town has canals, lovely buildings and museums too and is no where near as busy so very relaxing... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights in early October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We took the bus or train to Amsterdam daily and enjoyed coming back to quiet Haarlem for dinner and the evening. The restaurant serves a buffet breakfast which was very convenient. We also had an excellent dinner at the restaurant seated next to the chef... More

The hotel is in a quiet part of Haarlem which is easily accessible from Schiphol Airport by public transport. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would happily return to the hotel in the future. Our room was comfortable with a well stocked minibar (although we didn't use it). The Carlton Square is only 100metres from the main bus route... More

Hotel is nice with very friendly staff. Hotel is located near the Haarlem city which is walking distance. Has a car park next to the hotel. Plenty of eating places nearby. Haarlem is a beautiful city so a visit is a must.

We stayed two nights in his hotel while on vacation. It is central, close to the old section of the city and the main shopping area. We found a laundromat not far and used it. Rooms are nice and the restaurant downstairs is elegant and good. Helpful staff.
