we stayed here to be close to Amsterdam, short train journey. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they organise free parking for you on the car park on IKEA. They saved me €300 for the underground car park. The rooms are clean, they are a bit dated but overall excellent place to stay. Nearby Italian restaurant, excellent and... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location, right on the square with bars and restaurants but very quiet at night. Just a short walk from the train and bus stations and next to lovely shopping streets. Had breakfast the first morning and it was poor, the buffet was not replenished and the waitress was not friendly. The decor... More

This was a good hotel for us. Centrally located, good price, clean. We had a room off the courtyard, which proved to be a good choice. Very quiet. Room was spacious and clean. The lobby was in need of some sprucing up, but otherwise good. The breakfast was a good value with lots to choose from.

Stayed here at the start of our Rick Steves' tour. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was great. We would definitely recommend. Just be sure to ask for a room in the back or off the courtyard. Then you won't have to worry about the noise.

The receptionist at check in was rude and condescending. My wife asked for a cup of hot water and was told that it would cost 1Euro. When she asked how big the cup was she was told it was a cup. I don't know if this was because she was a racist as my wife is Chinese. My wife wanted... More

The people here were very nice. After a long flight we appreciated that. The breakfast was more than we expected. The room was spacious. However, we did get a lot of party noise from a nearby café/bar. The bathroom had a shower that did not have a stall. There was just a drain on one side of the room and... More

My wife and I recently tried to sleep in this hotel our first night after crossing the Atlantic from Oregon. We were dead tired. They gave us this room on the back side of the motel, and it had two windows that opened onto a roof that faced West, and got hot sun, of course we opened the windows to... More

Joops is apparently part of the Ambassador Hotel. Firstly booking.com does not indicate that you can only check in at Ambassador Hotel so we had to walk back to the Ambassadors to check in. Joops seems to be going through a renovation. It has no reception and no restaurant. Our room was 36, no air con but a very noisy... More

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...
