From flexible check-in to perfect location in the old city center to good internet and friendly service, this hotel is perfect for business or vacation travel. I love the history of the building and the updated rooms and baths within the classic envelope and wood floors. The always remember your name in the office or restaurant. You can't walk to... More

We chose Stempels based on tripadvisor reviews and are very glad we did. Our junior suite overlooking the church was quiet, clean and comfortable, and although there was only one dormer window, the room was well-lit. (We did wish they offered free wifi instead of having a desptop in the room.) The building is charming and has historical character. Unlike... More

This was my first visit to Haarlem and a friend who now lives here recommended Stempels. Glad he did: I arrived late so restaurant was shut (no noise - may be a problem ?) so went straight to the room after some friendly check-in banter during which I found out about the past of the building as a banknote press...

What a difference 15 minutes outside Amsterdam can make! We stayed at Stempels for 4 nights to attend a friends wedding. We were greeted upon check in with a warm, friendly and pleasant welcome. Our room was (No 20) was bright, spacious and the bed is so comfortable that it was a shame getting up in the morning. Our (huge)... More

A lovely property with many historical details awaits your arrival. The hotel is situated in a lovely square with a quick walk to a peaceful canal. The rooms all vary with wonderful historical details and views of the square and cathedral. The public rooms are tastefully decorated. A wonderful Dutch breakfast is served. The restaurant and bar are very nice... More

Leaving a horrible experience at Amrath Hotel (see other review), we moved over here and would give them five stars on Customer Service! Not only did they take care of us when we were in the hotel, but we ate so well in Haarlem based on their food recommendations. Breakfast is pricey, but again includes amazing customer service and all... More

We greatly enjoyed this hotel. It is immediately across from the old church in Haarlem. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Haarlem train station. Service was excellent. Breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip, a little pricey at 12.5 euros per person, but very good typical european hotel breakfast with some extras. The... More

Having previously been to Amsterdam, we wanted a different experience in order to see the countryside. Our 2 night stay at Stempels was great! Room facing the church was comfortable while not overly fancy. We were afraid that we would hear the church bell chimes through the night, but we never did. Computer in the room was an added touch,... More

I travel for business and leisure a lot, and was very disappointed at the communication with this hotel. We had booked a one night stay several months ahead, and had to cancel due to an unplanned national holiday (the Queen basically retired and they were celebrating the inaguaration of the new King). This was not known at the time we... More

This "3-star" hotel has a lot to offer. The rooms are beautiful and include AC/heat controls. There is an elevator, which is great for use with luggage. The property is located on the central market across from the Great Kirk (church). I did not have time in my one day/night stay to enjoy sitting in front on the hotel watching... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Here at Stempels you are welcome to eat, drink, having a party, to enjoy performances, to organize meetings and stay overnight. This all happens on the premises of the former Joh. Enschede complex, where for many years the Dutch banknotes has been pressed as well as post stamps for a lot of different countries. In other words, a place with a rich history, renovated into a modern hotel-restaurant, full of cosy atmosphere, right in the centre of the monumental heart of Haarlem. The well known Haarlem restaurant owner, Frans van Cappelle, wish to extend a warm welcome to you. On the first, second and third floor of the building are seventeen hotel rooms. The first and second floor are attainable by lift, but if you are in good condition, we recommend the old monumental staircase.There are four comfort rooms, six superior rooms, five luxury rooms, one junior suite and one suite. All rooms are provided with Hästens beds, airconditioning, a flat screen television set, a computer, free (wireless-) internet facilities, toilet and a shower. The luxury rooms and suites also have a bath. Like everywhere in the building one can find original decorations and ornaments in the hotel rooms.Staying at the front of the building one has a magnificent view of the Klokhuisplein and the St.Bavo church. ... more   less
