We stayed 4 nights after a business conference and had a very relaxing time. The staff was great. We enjoyed sitting either inside by the windows our on the patio in the evenings for a "happy hour" drink and snack. There are restaurants nearby, and the food in the hotel is also quite good. It is a pleasant walk to... More

Great staff, great size rooms, even had a balcony, really clean, although it's looking a little tired, the wallpaper is starting to peel of the walls, the carpets were a little bare and stained from the air conditioning drips. In the restaurant, the food is a good quality with good size proportions and value for money. the staff were friendly,... More

My husband and I just spent about ten days in The Netherlands. Haarlem was our last stop; we were going to be celebrating my birthday. Originally, we planned to go to Amsterdam, but the hotel and parking prices were too steep. Also, Rick Steves always recommends Haarlem over Amsterdam. Having been to both places, I can see why. Haarlem is... More

I stayed here for three nights while on holiday in Haarlem. The hotel has a nice central location, just a 10 minute walk from the heart of the old city. There is underground parking available via a public parking garage (with an elevator into the hotel). The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was quite spacious, though a bit... More

We flew into Schipol from Australia and drove our rental car to Haarlem. The hotel was easy to find and the staff were helpful in checking us in and parking the car. We were in a comfortable room in no time to shower and change. The hotel is well located so we walked around town and enjoyed our first day... More

Apart from the youths that hang around just outside on a bench under the tree outside of the hotel its a quiet place but they do get rowdy at times til late. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Room was tidy and good decor. The restaurant had strange opening times and was very dark and dingy and the whisky bar... More

The hotel is situated about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the town centre and 2 minutes from the local bar, coffee shop and bank machine, however it is possible to walk to the start of the shops in about 5 minutes, just turn right outs of entrance and right again, and carry on! The hotel has a slight... More

Great location, close to Grote Market but not too close, so noise is not a problem. Rooms are spacious. Parking is underneath hotel in a public lot. Odd thing is you have to go to another building nearby to pay for parking. Also, hotel elevators do not take you directly to the parking lot, it always stops at the lobby... More

The best place to start your Haarlem Shopping trip. Nice rooms for a nice price.The hotel is in walking distance to the city center. Restaurants in the neighborhood and also in the city center. The shops in the city center streets are divers and worth the visit.

Good hotel, cosy, clean and well maintained. The interior is traditional; bed comftorable. Most likely the best hotel in quaint Haarlem. The free minibar, including complimentary sodas, whiskey, cognac and chocolate was highly appreciated. The hotel is very close to the centre and within 15-20 min walking distance from Haarlem Central or a short bus ride. The bus to the... More
