Travelling with my partner for his summer business trips to Europe, we have stayed at the Frans Hals a couple of times. The funniest time was during our first time in Haarlem when, after checking in, we headed out to find something to eat. Situated in a great part of Haarlem, we found a restaurant very close, a great table... More

The hotel has the best location possible in Haarlem. Its right next to the buzzing main area (only area where bars will be open till 1-2AM) . The main church is also next to it. Best way to arrive to this hotel from schiphol is by bus 300 or 277. It takes 25 mins to reach centrum stop and the... More

Hotel was okay. Arrived during a two day heatwave and the air con in the room is really poor. Which made for a awful nights sleep. They also provide you with a fridge in your room, which comes with both soft drinks and alcohol. We counted our drinks on arrival and found that we were one whisky short, but didn't... More

Arriving around 6pm on a Friday I was given the last room available, which was quite small with an even smaller window. The bathroom however was large and bright with Dove bodywash/shampoo, and the bed was extremely comfortable. I visited Haarlem on supposedly the hottest day of the year and even with the A/C cranked up to the maximum my... More

Just by the cathedral, this old hotel has been nicely revamped and made cosy + modern at the same time. The rooms are ok, quiet enough and the beds are very comfy. We did not try the buffet breakfast, which was not included in our deal. We would definitely come back !

Haarlem is a beautiful place and this hotel is just located in the center of this little place near Ámsterdam. The hotel is really nice and comfortable. You must visit this city and stay at the Amrath hotel.

Maybe my standards are too high but I was really disappointed with this hotel. Tiny room, smelly hallways, dirty sheets. Internet/wifi was awful. The Front Desk staff was ok, Rob was great, everyone else seemed really un-informed. No one had answers to questions of nearby attractions, directions, tourist information. But Haarlem doesn't seem to be too tourist-friendly a place.. I... More

Neutral - Standard breakfest, not too bad - Perfect if you have no car Pro - Central close to cathedral (old part of the city) - Free water dispenser / apples on each floor - Modern bathroom Contra - Bit too loud in first floor as bars are around
