“Comfortable and practical hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

This hotel is right in the centre of Haarlem next to the main train and bus station. Comfortable rooms, good breakfast and helpful staff. There is a public garage opposite the hotel which was quite safe. The hotel is walking distance from the historical centre where you will find a lot of cafes and restaurants. All in all a good stay

Room Tip: As for a room at the back of hotel where it will be less noisy

A really comfy bed and well appointed room, in a lovely, homely feel hotel. Centrally placed within the heart of Haarlem and easy walking distance to great restuarants and bars. Extremely helpful and friendly staff who made me very welcome. Breakfast was great. Very Dutch so don't expect a full English, but you can cook your own eggs and toast fresh bread or indulge in cheese, fruit and pastries. Fab coffee machine that makes a mean expresso and the cups hold four at a time, wicked. I really liked Haarlem and would like to linger longer next time. Only minus point to me was a very odd alarm by the bed, which I set for 7am as a back up call, but it went off at 3am. Not great! But I alerted the staff in the morning and they very professionally said they would deal with it. Would hate someone else to get a wake up call at that unearthly hour. Otherwise a fab stay.

A one night stay in Haarlem for me on a press trip. Stayed in the Lion D'Or and had everything that I needed - good WIFI, clean and large room with all of the facilities that you might need for a city break. The room would have comfortably slept two people. A little walk to the place we went to eat in the evening, but we got a taxi back afterwards and it was inexpensive to do so.

We based ourselves at Golden Tulip Hotel Lion D'Or in Haarlem for an eight day visit to the Netherlands - three in Amsterdam (via train) and five to destinations around the country. The hotel was terrific - very friendly and helpful staff at the reception and in the dining room, a nice breakfast buffet, comfortable rooms, great location (a minute from the train station, a few minutes in the other direction to charming, historic Haarlem), and easy access to highways and the airport. It really felt like our home and we were happy to return at the end of each day.

Room Tip: Based on reviews we read before booking, we requested a quiet room and indeed, ours faced the back o...

Thank you RJ for your kind words. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family in our hotel! You stayed quite long with us and used the hotel as a base to discover more of Europe. We hope to see you back some other time and meanwhile your comment inspires us to keep doing what we do.

Other reviews have said it all - a quiet and comfortable room steps from the train and bus station, and an easy 10 minute walk to the town Center. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast is adequate.

The location was excellent, directly across from the bus and train stations, and only twenty minutes from downtown Amsterdam. It is situated in Haarlem a lovely, clean and historic district to discover with some wonderful restaurants within a 10 minute walking distance from the hotel.
A free parking voucher is provided for indoor parking within a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
The medium-sized room is appealing with very comfortable beds, a flat screen TV, and a well-lit modern washroom. Unfortunately the view was limited to the next building, and suffered from a lack of sunlight. The hallways were wide and the elevators dated but functional. The free breakfast offered an excellent variety of breads, delicious original Holland style cakes, yogurt and fruit as well as a mini grill for the patrons who like to fry their own omelette or preferred style of eggs. Most varieties of savory Dutch -Style coffee were provided ie. cappucino, lattee, espresso etc. and they were served hot and limitless. The staff was exceptionally co-operative. They even allowed us to keep our (caged) puppy in the room even though the hotel does not accept pets. The rate was in line with most 4 star hotels in Amsterdam. We would certainly make this a repeat visit if and when the opportunity arises. (Actual stay was in March/2013)

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the square.
