“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Looking for a good hotel in the city of Alkmaar, think of this Golden Tulip. It is welll situated near the motor highway, but still in the city. With own parkingspace, good food and nice staff, this is a good accomodation.
Breakfast could be a bit better though: some items (for example scrambled eggs) were not available anymore at approx. 07:30 am.
Also, the bedrooms are very standard and sober, but with a lot of space and the bed was good!

Nice location. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful regarding things to do in the area. She was also efficient at checking us in for the night.

The room was spacious and overlooked the main street. It was pretty and even though on the street side it was quiet. No street noise.

The price was reasonable for the quality of room and service we received.

The only down side was the breakfast was very costly therefore we chose not to eat here.

PROS:
This was the most spacious room we've stayed at in Europe.
Affordable
VERY friendly staff
Free wireless internet with very good connection (was able to do Skype and perform other tasks online without any degradation)

CONS:
Toilet was placed right against a side wall in the bathroom making it difficult to sit on the toilet in that particular room. Not sure if it was an anomaly to that room or not.

OTHER:
The room was plain with three single beds (two for my wife and I and one for our child).

Room Tip: Room 410 had the strange bathroom layout.

The rooms were ok but the style was a bit outdated and dark. All in all the hotel was quite basic.

But I must say that the breakfeast was very nice. :-)

Stayed for 1 night. Nothing special. Room was clean, average beds, no amenities to speak of: 1 small tube of shampoo and 1 of showergel . Nothing in the room to reflect festive season, no coffee/tea facilities, no magazines, no writing materials, no minibar (although there is a vending machine for candy, condoms and sodas...). Quite disappointing for the price and breakfast is 13 euros extra. That was worth it however!

Very good hotel. Friendly staff. Had an upgrade to an XL room. Very nice room with
area to sit and relax. Mini bar and coffeemachine in the room. Windows on all sides.
Very clean. Bar downstairs which was nice. Breakfast was good and lots of choice both hot and cold. Can recommend it.

Room Tip: Just outside city centre so no views but still good location.

This was my first stay in this particular hotel, and was impressed by both the staff and the service.

However what was surprising was the fact that the hotel had only partial AC in certain rooms. Unfortunately three of my colleagues plus myself did not have a room on a particular hot night. If you left the windows open, the noise from the road kept you awake, if you closed the window you slowly roaster! Spoilt a good stay!
