“Terrible, never go there!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2008

Terrible,

We thought we stayed their for a nice weekend trip in Haarlem. The hotel was a big disapointment. The rooms are old fashioned, the carpet is full of spots and their is absolutely nothing that gives you a warm and luxurious feeling of staying in a hotel. The halls are not cosy and everything looks old.

The breakfast room in the morning gave us the feeling that we good not talk with eachother and the food itself is simple and nothing special. The lady that was walking arround was not friendly and willing to help or seeming to enjoy her work.

We really hated it and will never goo their again. It is not a four star hotel and you pay far to much.

I booked here for a business trip because I couldn't get another hotel. But the Lion d'Or was a nice surprise. Centrally located, just opposite the railway station, but also on walkiing distance of the historic town centre. Although the hotel is located at a busy street, it was not noisy at all. The room was spacious, the breakfast fine. Staff is friendly. I will certainly return.

This is a wonderful cozy hotel,just across the street from the train station. We stayed in room #2 and room #16 during 2 different occasions. Both rooms were lovely. The Buffet Breakfast was excellent and plentyful. Front desk staff and dining room bar staff were very friendly,kind and helpful. As frequent visitors to Netherlands and western Europe, we highly recommend this excellent hotel. Close to city centre and all amenities in the very charming and friendly city of Haarlem.

You can't beat this location for touring in Holland. The train is 50 yards from the Haarlem train station with trains to Amsterdam Centraal Station (15 min), Leiden (20 min), The Hague, Delft, etc. We stayed 6 nights there in early September in preference to crowded Amsterdam, and were really happy with the choice. We were able to spend days in A'dam, have dinner there, and get to the A'dam station and back to the hotel in a half hour. The hotel is small, with great staff-super friendly. Our rate included a decent breakfast buffet, and that saves you both time and money. The hotel was recently upgraded with soundproof windows, which helps a lot. It's a short walk to the Grote Markt in Haarlem for cappucino etc.

We stayed here for a weekend in March. We were in room 16, which was big, comfortable, and clean. An extra bed was brought in for our two-year-old, and it still felt spacious. The included breakfast was not anything special, but it sufficed. We would absolutely stay here again, as the location is superb. Though, not all of the staff were overtly friendly.

I stayed for 2 nights and was very pleased. I had considered the Carillon or Mozart which are more central for Haarlem but I'm glad I chose the Golden Tulip. It's a very short walk to anywhere in Haarlem so your hotel doesn't have to be on the noisy main square. With luggage it's very easy to walk to the hotel from the train or take a trip into Amsterdam. Fine room, good breakfast, and friendly staff. I looked all around and it's the best choice for Haarlem.

We were quite happy with our stay at this hotel. The room was the smallest we had in our entire trip, but it was clean, and they provided a very nice breakfast. The location is perfect, just steps from the train station. Considering the special rate for 80 Euros/ night we got online, the room was a good value.
