We were impressed with the lobby and the location. Our room was a decent size and clean, however, the chairs in the room were ripped, the shower was set up quite horrible (there was actually a squeegee in our shower to help not soak the whole bathroom floor.) There was a very small bath mat that was torn, and the... More

Comfortable rooms. Unexpectedly good for this price in Netherlands. Very nice staff. Excellent location in the centre of Haarlem. Difficult to find a place to smoke, as in most hotels in the Netherlands.

The hotel should not have 3* on it's door, and the Michelin Guide Stickers on the door are obviously a mistake. First of all, don't be fooled by their claim they have an elevator in the building! The one that exists is only in one of the hotel's 3 buildings, and even that one, only takes you to the 1st... More

The staff were very helpful, breakfast was good, and the room was clean and the location is great! This is a great place for a weekend get away, but beware of the parking if you travel by car, there are plenty of places to park but it isn't ever cheap!

We booked this hotel just a couple of days before our arrival and were very pleasantly surprised at our good luck. The hotel is in a great part of town, right across the street from a wonderful 15th century church and steps from the main market square. Our room was on the first floor and just looked out at a...

We booked this hotel through expedia as we needed somewhere to crash overnight. When we arrived expedia had cancelled our booking without informing us so the hotel had no record of our booking. The manager was very helpful and apologetic and found us a room. He even discounted it from the already discounted price we had been quoted by expedia.... More

This centrally located Haarlem hotel barely earns its three stars. The lobby is fun with its collection of clocks, and the dining room interesting with its, what, Greek-themed? frescoes. The place is clean but asterile. No European charm whatever. The staff is young and green but they do their best. The breakfast is cooked with only minimal concern for quality.... More

I am only submitting this review to Triadvisor after sending the same one to the hotel management, which elicited a dismissive and unconcerned response. We stayed in the 'Joops' part of the hotel. The ‘bathroom’ (room with a shower) is barely functional. There is no shower facility - just a shower-head in the ceiling and a hole in the ground as a... More

Stayed here for four nights in June, 2013. Great location in central Haarlem. We were a bit put off by the Egyptian motif in our room, but it grew on us in a weird sort of way. Ample breakfast in the morning and the front desk was helpful and polite. We'll definitely stay here again on our next trip to... More
