Family-run hotel. Within easy walking distance from the central bus stop in Haarlem. Take bus no. 300 from Schiphol to Haarlem. 5mins walk to main tourist area and 13 minutes walk to Haarlem Railway Station. Cinema, restaurants, grocery store very close by. Breakfast is included in the price. Owners are friendly. We would stay there again.

stayed for 3 nights and the hotel is good value it is not luxury but then the price reflects that, the room was plenty large enough for 3 adults, it was clean fairly quiet and the breakfast was a typical continental breakfast, cheese, cold meats, eggs, and a variety of fresh bread, it is run by an Indonesian couple who...

I live in Haarlem myself and I was searching for an hotel for a visit I had on april. Due to the date's proximity to "King's Day", almost all hotels where booked by the time I tried to book an hotel. I picked Die Raeckse because it was really well situated. There's a walking distance within 3 minutes to Grotemarkt,... More

Have just spent a month here while my husband was working in Haarlem. The room was ok, very clean, but definitely not luxurious, quite old fashioned. As we were above the lobby had good wi-fi. Lots of street noise during the night, and very early morning bin emptying. Owners were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was good. Situated 5... More

Die Raeckse is an old café/hotel that has been extended with a block of new Bed & Breakfast rooms above a ballroom (probably built in the 1970s by the look of the design). The "new" rooms are basic and functional - reasonable size and comfortable beds, with simple furniture. Bathrooms are clean and functional. As somewhere to sleep overnight, it's... More

The hotel has 2 differing parts. The cafe and lobby area are quite charming/old grand cafe in style (breakfast simple and included in price). Once you go upstairs to the rooms it starts becoming dated and worn. My single room was small although bed was a small double. Shower didn't have a curtain, strange but managed to keep the place...

In May my husband and I spent 6 nights in the Hotel Die Raeckse. We chose Haarlem as a base to save on hotel rates. From the hotel it is a 15 minute train ride to Amsterdam, however you must walk or take a bus to the train station. It's approximately a 15 minute walk. There is no lift/elevator in... More

I stayed here for 5 nights last week, an enjoyable experience. I chose Haarlem rather than Amsterdam as it was easier to get a hotel within my budget, and has good transport connections to the airport and Amsterdam. Die Raeckse was scrupulously clean, the room was small (although bigger than in the other hotel I stayed in on my trip)... More

My husband and I spent 7 days in Netherland for a holiday and stayed in a Die Raeckse Hotel owned by a Chinese couple. We paid the total bill upfront with cash (660.80 euros). The first day we arrived, the owner (she) was friendly. However, everything turned so differently on the second day onwards. Why? The owner(she) was unhappy with... More

We spent 3 nights at the hotel Die Raeckse and really enjoyed the stay (me, wife, young daughter). Haarlem was a great alternative for us vs. Amsterdam. Very close to Amsterdam (~15 minutes train or about the same time by car). However, we were interested in seeing some other sites (e.g. Keukenhof) and were driving, which made the smaller, calmer...
