I wanted to add to my last review but apparently it's not permitted. Now I've stayed at the hotel again, I can. I wanted to say that, following the problems of my last stay, the hotel's customer service couldn't have been better. They wanted to put things right and, with my recent return to the hotel, they did.

My room this time was on the first floor and overlooked a side-street so was quiet. It was a decent size and the bathroom had a bath as well as shower which was excellent. The bed was very comfortable so I got some very good nights' sleep. The room smelled fresh as if it had been recently decorated and the room furniture replaced.

The wifi was OK. Though it still only connected to my netbook intermittently, my phone had no problem.

The position is, obviously, still the same. As close to the station as a hotel can be without being on a platform and the station area in Haarlem is fine, not like in larger cities. Still only a short (10 minute?) walk to the central square but with good small restaurants and cafes close by if it's raining. I didn't actually try the hotel's bistro as I was eating out with friends but the smells were good. Breakfast was the same as before - a choice of hot and cold with plenty of seating in a pleasant room overlooking the square.

The staff were helpful and pleasant and I enjoyed my stay there. I'm glad I tried again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Our family stayed here last week, and the hotel had reasonable accommodations.

Pros:
- Great location near the rail station, Corrie ten Boom house, and the city square in Haarlem (it's basically a 20 minute trip to get to Amsterdam via rail)
- Great breakfast
- The staff was helpful and friendly
- WiFi works pretty well overall
- Water in the bathroom can get as hot as you could ever want it.

Cons:
- Small rooms and tiny bathrooms
- Queen mattresses have divide down the middle, separating them into basically two twin mattresses
- No pool, fitness center, hot tub, et al.

Stayed April 2014

Great location, across the street from the bus station and just a few steps from the train station. The hotel manager and his wife keep the place in great shape. The front desk receptionist and hotel staff are the best. The rooms are very clean and large. The hotel restaurant has great food and the atmosphere is very nice. The bar has a very good selection of wines and beer.
The town of Haarlem is also a great place to visit.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back have less traffic noise.

Very convenient location, a few metres from the railway station and a few minutes from the city centre of Haarlem.

The breakfast is not among the best for a 4 star hotel, and I did not like (of all things) my pillow, but the front desk was helpful with another one.

Friendly staff and very quiet location. If you want to get to Amsterdam, the location next to the railway station is perfect.

We stayed in this hotel by accident and it was a great find. This was our first trip to The Netherlands and we were pleased not to be stuck in the middle of the stag and hen dos of Central Amsterdam.

We flew in to Amsterdam airport and caught a bus right outside straight to Haarlem for just €4 each. The hotel was then just a few metres away.

We were met by a lady on reception who couldn't do enough for us. Our room was on the second floor towards the back of the building and was silent. Perfect for me as I'm a really light sleeper.

From our base here we walked over the road to catch a train to Amsterdam for the day. It was really easy and you get to go on the double decker trains. We also spent a day in Haarlem itself as there are many places to visit. The Adriaan windmill is a must.

Overall we'd recommend this hotel to anyone after a quiet place to stay and explore. Nice rooms, comfy beds, proper size safe and free wifi in the rooms. Loads of great places to eat out around the hotel too.
