I believe we got one of the dingy backrooms mentioned by the previous reviewer. It was clean, but in serious need of an update as the wallpaper was torn in places, and in the en suite bathroom, painted tile was slowly returning to its original color. The stairs were very narrow, steep and there is no other way up, so be prepared to heft your luggage yourself.
That being said, the members of the staff were courteous, helpful and resolved the few issues we had immediately. The hotel is on a busy square and the quiet back room was a bonus to weary travelers. We only returned to the room to sleep so basic was all we were looking for. Breakfast was continental in style toast, cereal, boiled eggs etc, with endless cups of coffee. On our last day in Haarlem, they kindly allowed us to leave our luggage in the storage room after check out, giving us time to visit the Saturday Market in the square before we caught the bus to our next destination.

We're 5 minutes walk to the train that takes you to Amsterdam centre in just 15 minutes.(2) Low rates: We offer very low rates for a Haarlem hotel. Our customers come to spend their time out and about enjoying what Haarlem and Amsterdam have to offer. So we are small, clean and provide the best services we can at the very best prices.(3) Great restaurant:Nestled at the ground floor is Restaurant Carillon that is a warm cosy hangout from morning to dusk.
