I wanted a hotel that would be cheap but of reasonable quality for a 24h layover in Amsterdam. I chose the Carillon hotel in Haarlem - it is ok for the price but there are a few drawbacks... I got there early in the morning (9.30) and I could not check in before 1pm. Amsterdam is only 15 mins by train but the hotel is already 15 mins from the train station so it takes some time to go back and forth. The stairs are not wide at all and very steep. However the room and bathroom were clean and quiet. Breakfast is included and very good (continental). WiFi is also included and quite fast, and staff are friendly. It is a very good hotel if you don't have too much luggage.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Hotel Carillon!We're a small family-run hotel located at the heart of the beautiful city of Haarlem. We've just re-launched this hotel since January 2013 so we don't have many reviews just yet on TripAdvisor. Please allow us to tell you 3 things about our hotel:(1) Great location: We sit right off the central market square. 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. We have regular locals from the area that love the food here and even if you don't stay we'd love you to visit for a coffee, beer or evening meal. ... more less
