Never before have I seen such dirty carpets in a hotel. Our room was basic but OK. Bathroom fan didn't work. The worst thing was the outside noise, there was a constant drone of electronic music that woke us up and the noise continued until around 3am. Only stayed one night and wouldn't stay there again.

We had a pleasant stay in this Hotel, rooms very basic, but spacious and clean with very comfortable beds! Perfect location! Surrounded by street cafes and restaurants. Loved the foyer with antique clock-colllection,home away from home! Beautiful fresh tulips in vase! typical Holland!Friendly helpful receptionists. I arranged for a parcel from Germany, to be mailed to the Hotel for collection... More

This is a really nice hotel, right in the centre, on the square. The public areas are quirky and full of character. Our rooms were comfortable and functional (great shower), though at the front and a little noisy at times (I would request a room at the back if I stayed here again). Breakfast is a little pricy and there... More

Was perfect in the middle of old Haarlem. They have another building with rooms around the corner, which are not good if you are a light sleeper and also had no elevator. Steep steps! Pub across the road was extremely noisy till 4 am each of the 4 days we were there.. Breakfast had a good assortment but no change... More

This hotel is located in the city center right across from the main square and cathedral. It is about a 10 minute walk from the train station. There was a significant amount of street noise, as our room directly faced the cathedral, but it died down by midnight or 1am. The room was clean with IKEA-type furnishings and average size... More

We were given 2 "garden rooms", the garden being a concrete courtyard with plastic flowers. Access was through a dark dingy corridor, which in the morning was taken up by water hoses and electric cables for construction to the property next to it. The entrance to this corridor was a red door around the corner from the main entrance, only... More

The first room we stayed in had not been cleaned. Pretty disgusting, lots of hairs on the carpet from the previous guest. The room was accessed by going out of the hotel and through a courtyard. The room size was good and this bathroom had a rainfall shower as advertised for a superior room. Unfortunately, not a good night sleep... More

Loved, loved the location, and seeing the same ikea chairs/tables I have in my kiddos rooms was fun. We had a wonderful experience-yes the bathrooms are different than in many modern U.S. Hotels, but big deal, don't carry everything in with you to bathe, and don't splash all over the place. Staff was friendly, lobby was cool, breakfast was good.... More

I just read some of the reviews and it's as if there are two hotels; my experience was good. We stayed here one night as part of Tulip Tours biking, so they picked the hotel. We used a GPS to find the hotel and the GPS told us immediately upon entering the address that the hotel cannot be accessed by... More

One of the worst experiences ever. Assistant manager was quite polite, but guy on duty was very rude and arrogant and front desk manager never bothered to meet us. So where do I start. For a couple in a double bedroom got 2 small pillows, 2 single duvets. Never bothered to change the towels, although requested - made up bed... More
