We stayed at this lovely hotel for 4 nights in September. Very clean rooms with comfortable beds and helpful staff. We loved the location, being a 10-15 minute walk to the bus & train station as well as close to many nice places to eat within the Groet Market and shopping. Haarlem is a wonderful place to stay with easy... More

We stayed at this property on the last night of our trip before flying home. We had trouble finding affordable lodging in Amsterdam and Haarlem for under 300 Euro a night and with no 2 night minimum for this particular Saturday night, so we took this recommendation from our Rick Steves book. Here were my chief complaints: -Walls are paper... More

Reading some comments and seeing pictures it looked such a pretty hotel, well located and reasonable price. Oh my god! I tried two different rooms. First one so small, no light, smelling smoke and kitchen so strong......bed was like for a kid !... Second one was smelling the same, 20 euros more for a bigger bed but even more dirty,... More

I wanted a hotel that would be cheap but of reasonable quality for a 24h layover in Amsterdam. I chose the Carillon hotel in Haarlem - it is ok for the price but there are a few drawbacks... I got there early in the morning (9.30) and I could not check in before 1pm. Amsterdam is only 15 mins by... More

The hotel was recommended by two travel books and I don't know why. I would never stay here again. The outside looks nice but the inside is totally disgusting. The bed was tiny and very uncomfortable. There was a lot of noise from outside so I didn't get much sleep. The rooms need a total revamping. This was not a... More

Great location, good service, breakfast OK but nothing special. The rooms are small and the furnishings old and tired (table was actually broken top fell onto the floor with my laptop on it. I wouldn't stay here again.

I was travelling alone for a few days. And this hotel was perfect for me: pleasant stuff, good meal and really clean. I needed a good place to stay and easy to travel around. My choise was correct: few minutes to the train station and only 20 min to Amsterdam! Perfect! Thanks a lot!

I believe we got one of the dingy backrooms mentioned by the previous reviewer. It was clean, but in serious need of an update as the wallpaper was torn in places, and in the en suite bathroom, painted tile was slowly returning to its original color. The stairs were very narrow, steep and there is no other way up, so... More

Dear wattsnew, Thanks for your honest review and rating. We hope to update the rooms at the back soon. However, good to hear that back rooms also have a positive side in the reduced noise from the square. Our stairs are a little steep as you note. This is typical of traditional Dutch property and we have looked at all... More

The four stars are really for the food and atmosphere. Good value menu and chef dishes in what we found to be quite an expensive town. Very comfortable and cosy casual bar and dining room with chandeliers and well-judged not too loud music. Front outside terrace with heaters and great view direct onto main market square -- the ideal place... More

Hi 42Nige, Thanks very much for your honest review and rating. I'm sorry to hear that the service was not up to scratch. This is not normal - which hopefully is clear from the other reviews. What you mention in your review is not acceptable. I would appreciate to exchange information privately on this so I can identify the staff... More

1 night stay in a single room. Typical Dutch stairways to get to 3rd floor for small, quaint single room which needs some updating. Shared bathroom so it has a hostel/B&B feel to it but the price is too high for what you get so you're basically paying for location which is right on the main sq opposite the cathedral.... More

Hi FlyingDutchMark, Thanks very much for taking time to provide your honest review and rating. I just wanted to let you and others know that the top floor of our hotel does indeed have shared facilities. These are only single rooms and relatively small. However this is the cheapest accomodation you will find on the Haarlem square. This is indeed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to Hotel Carillon!We're a small family-run hotel located at the heart of the beautiful city of Haarlem. We've just re-launched this hotel since January 2013 so we don't have many reviews just yet on TripAdvisor. Please allow us to tell you 3 things about our hotel:(1) Great location: We sit right off the central market square. We're 5 minutes walk to the train that takes you to Amsterdam centre in just 15 minutes.(2) Low rates: We offer very low rates for a Haarlem hotel. Our customers come to spend their time out and about enjoying what Haarlem and Amsterdam have to offer. So we are small, clean and provide the best services we can at the very best prices.(3) Great restaurant:Nestled at the ground floor is Restaurant Carillon that is a warm cosy hangout from morning to dusk. We have regular locals from the area that love the food here and even if you don't stay we'd love you to visit for a coffee, beer or evening meal. ... more   less
