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... More

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 Average room with outdated decor.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.

The room we had was ok but pretty cold even with the central heating on, which was a bit surprising for September. Its a great location in the centre of town, but unless you want to pay a fortune for parking you need to arrive after 6pm. If you stay for more than one night and leave your car in... More
