I am very pleased with the Hotel Centraal. The location of Hotel Centraal is very central (as the name suggests). There is plenty of roadside parking near the hotel, at a very nominal price. I believe it was something like 3 Euros for a day. The hotel itself is very charming. This does not purport to be a 5 star... More

I stayed in this Hotel in November 2014 for 2.5 weeks during a business trip, Rooms are quite basic and the beds are a bit passed their best, but have good wifi internet and nice hot showers. Food was excellent throughout including the breakfast (I can highly reccommend the whole plaice, it's huge!) but the 3 course set meal differant... More

A lovely old building with a small reception area, bar/lounge and modernised dining room on the ground floor. Fantastic breakfast provided. Steep stairs up to our room at the front on the first floor which was very spacious and had everything you could want for a comfortable stay. Large bed, albeit with a creaky wooden frame, two armchairs, coffee table.... More

Adequate rooms at moderate prices, good breakfast, nice location very close to Zuiderhaven. Public parking in same street. Only disadvantage on sundays: loud church bells ( church around the corner) already at 0800 hrs.

Hotel Centraal is located right at the heart of the historical and beautiful Harlingen city. This is a very well operated family hotel. All the hotel staff (obviously includes the owner Chris) are very friendly and very helpful, they would accomdate any need that a guest would have. This hotel is operated very efficiently and it will suit all your... More

3rd time in Harlingen on business purpose. It is for sure not the prettiest hotel I've ever stayed on. But it is central, it got soul, it's nice and clean and there is just something about it. The owner is the nicest man In the world and VERY helpfull

Lovely Place, perfectly located in romantic sea town of Harlingen. Chris the helpful owner always good for advice. Excellent breakfast serviced. I would like to recommend the place as a hub to visit neighboring Dutch countryside.

We stayed at this hotel in July of 2012. The location is, of course, central-- with very easy public parking across the street. This is not a particularly up to date hotel, however there was a certain charm in that its not trying to be anything other than what it is--- an old fashioned hotel with pretty lobby, a nice...

Great location. Average room with outdated decor. The bathroom was like a closet and towels were kept on a towel rack just outside the bathroom. You could easily hear other hotel guests coming and going. A bit minimal for the price I paid for the room.

This is the second time I have stayed here for a week's holiday. Its location within Harlingen is excellent, the rooms very comfortable, the staff friendly and breakfast of a very high standard. The only shortcoming for those with reduced mobility would be the absence of a lift and the steep, winding staircase to the upper floors.
