We suddenly had to find a room in Haarlem and we found that Carlton Square had a room available that evening. As we were driving in the rain, it was a pleasant surprise to find that the hotel had underground parking. The parking has a direct access to the hotel.
As we were very tired, the front desk very quickly checked us in - must have not been more than 5 minutes! Drenched and cold, this kind of service really comes appreciated.
Then room was large with a complimentary bar - whiskey, peanuts, and brandy. We were really pleasantly surprised. And finally, the internet. Quick, no fuss and free.
I would love to rate this hotel as excellent but it still lacks that charm to make one really feel welcome and at home. Maybe because our visit was very quick. Maybe next time.
But definitely I will recommend busy business people to check in here. And for those of you who love to jog, a park across the way will give you a nice place to run.
We will be back!
