My husband, three children (17, 20 & 22) and I stayed at the Joops City Center Hotel, which is part of the Ambassador Hotel. The Joops is about a block from the Ambassador so both checking in and out were not a problem. The Joops doesn't have a lobby so it feels more like an apartment building than a hotel.... More

Stayed one night at this hotel. Location is very good - near center of the city and near almost everything. Bathroom wasn't clean and the shower was a messy setup. The water isn't contained in a tub - just drains in the middle of the bathroom floor - causing a very wet bathroom (it did come with a squeegee). Carpet... More

Had a lovely room, decorated in a Old Egyptian way! Felt really Luxury! Very facinating! So, nice room, nice breakfast 'n friendly staff. The location can't be better, right on the down town square! And a good and sade place for the bicycles too! Very appreciated!

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
