We have just returned from Haarlem - stayed at L'Anders for 2 nights. The room was wonderful full of character. It was in the best location - 5-10 mins walk either direction to shops or station. The breakfast was AMAZING as were the staff - they were courteous, friendly and helpful. The food was lovely and they had all amenities. Free ...yes FREE mini bar stocked for our use.
The only downside was the noise - I do have to mention it as it was quite bad. The hotel do provide ear plugs though. The noise started about 2-3am when the clubs closed up and on saturday morning they have a market so we could hear the market sellers throughout the night putting up their stalls - However the staff, location and food would tempt me back there again although I would definately ask for a back room and that it such a shame as the front room had a beautiful view of the square.
