This is the perfect alternative is you want Amsterdam close by but don't want to stay in Amsterdam. This place is two blocks from the bus/train station in Haarlem. From Haarlem central you're a 15 min train ride into Amsterdam central, 35 min bus ride to Amsterdam airport, a 30 min bus to Keukenhof, and one block off of the main downtown area in Haarlem.
We stayed in a family sized room which had a queen and a twin bed. This room was big enough for three adults or a family with two kids. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is excellent. The room was also stocked with tea, coffee, and a water heater.
Refrigerator in the hall with water
Bathroom has a hair dryer
Internet is excellent
Washer and dryer in the hallway if needed (soap is provided)
Breakfast was good
We would highly recommend staying here.
