I spent a weekend at the Ambassador and was satisfied with the room and the service. Plenty to see and do in the area as well as a lovely sushi restaurant right beside the hotel. If you want a clean bed and a decent sleep then the Ambassador ticks the boxes. Not the place for a romantic getaway!

My partner and I stayed in this lovely hotel for 5 nights in August, this quaint establishment is basically furnished and the price is extremely reasonable. The location on the other hand is fantastic, you could not ask for a more central location within Haarlem. Some of the rooms even look onto the Cathedral. Staff were pleasant and helpful, and...

Haarlem is a wonderful city just west of Amsterdam, and by a stroke of luck, we managed to book this hotel, sited just by the cathedral. If you think Amsterdam is too crowded, and would like a real dutch touch, I'd recommend Haarlem - and off course, the Ambassador City Hotel. It's just ten minutes by train from the tourist... More

I stayed in the Joops Hotel, an annex to the Ambassador Hotel. It is about 150 m around the corner from the Ambassador in a side street. The rooms do not have airconditioning; my window (in room 28) could only be opened about 2 cm due to a fire safety closure mechanism; it was either open a tiny bit or... More

We had a triple room, and it was quite spacious. Everything was clean and in working order. The desk staff were very helpful, and it was quite reasonable to use the phone to make an international call. The hotel is located in the heart of Haarlem, with lots of restaurant options nearby. It's an easy walk to the train station.... More

Very well located hotel, fair foom rate, kirsch decor with thousands of watches at the reception lounge and the breakfast place with Egyptian motifs. Nice and silent rooms and I must say that in my case I got an amazing sight from the tower of the Grot of St. Bavokerk.

We stayed 3 nights in a two-story family room at the Ambassador Hotel. It's furnished sparely - no art on the walls or anything, really. This hotel has "wet" bathrooms - now shower door, curtain or anything separating you from the toilet and vanity except a few inches. It was quite warm during our early July stay and there were...

I stayed for two weeks in Joops Hotel, an annex of the hotel located in a side alley off the main building. I am going to try to objectively state the pluses and minuses. Location: The hotel is smack in the center of the delightful old city of Haarlem, by the market square, surrounded by all the historic buildings including... More

great location... You can always hear the church bells and wish the collection of clocks in the reception were working.. Great place to be live in and very centrally located... The loo was a tad small compared to the size of the room , but it is a nice place....

We stayed in this hotel because it was booked by our tour group. The location was excellent & within walking distance to many great sites & the canal. The room, however was not so great. We understand they were in the middle of remodeling & figure they just hadn't gotten to our room yet. The carpet was stained & worn... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The monumental Ambassador City Centre Hotel is located in the historic heart of the city of Haarlem facing the St. Bavo Church. For city trippers this friendly hotel is an excellent choice. From the hotel, all the fun and interesting attractions can be easily reached. The train station is only a five-minute walk from the hotel. All rooms in the Ambassador City Centre Hotel*** are non-smoking. The stylish rooms are all marked by their unique interiors. A number of rooms also have a gorgeous view of the St. Bavo Church. The other rooms are at the rear of the hotel where you can rest peacefully in the heart of the city. Because of our unique location we are not allowed to offer our own parking facilities or discounts. In the hotel's surroundings there are public parking facilities available at an additional charge. We recommend parking in parking garage 'Appelaar' about 3 minutes walk from the hotel. Ambassador City Centre Hotel guarantees you an atmospheric stay in an ambiance in which you will feel at home immediately. The hotel offers all facilities you need for a weekend away or a long stay, for a leisure or a business trip. You can sweeten your stay by visiting our traditional Italian restaurant or our Grand Café 'De Gouverneur.' I wish you an enjoyable stay. Yours sincerely, Paul van Riek, General Manager. ... more   less
