“Early morning wake up calls!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Sometimes when you visit a hotel there are lots of services that are on offer that you don't want. One service that I didnt want at this hotel was an early morning call. We stayed at this hotel for three nights and I got not just one early morning wake up call but two!!! The hotel was clean and tidy, the rooms were nice, although they could do with more drawer space, the bathroom and shower were fine. The breakfast was ok but the price let it down, it was very expensive, coming in at about £18 per person. There are local cafes that will do you a good breakfast for about half the price or less. The staff were friendly. All in all it is a good hotel.

We stayed two nights here and had a enjoyable experience. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. It is very well located withn an easy walk of the old section of the town and many of the visitor sites

We booked a room with a canal view but there were scaffolding in front of the window, so no view what so ever. I have to mention that management gave us a free breakfast and a drink to compensate.

The hotel was clean and really central, and staff was really friendly and helpful.

Not sure if I will return though as I find its really pricey for what you get.

Great place, centrally positioned.
Clean and well decorated rooms, serviced daily and everything worked, including the TV remote!
The bar was well stocked for such a small bar, and service was quick once they knew someone was there.
The breakfast was, as one expects in Holland, self service - but pretty good with fresh coffee only.

Stayed many times, reviewed a year ago and my opinion remains unchanged. Frans Hals is a great spot - perfect location, friendly and efficient staff, good breakfasts, and rooms with everything you'd want - nice bed, good bathroom/shower, tea/coffeemaking, free WiFi, good TV, good blackout curtains etc etc.

Room Tip: In Summer I've found the lower floor rooms to be best, hot air rises! That said, when I was giv...

Stayed Aug 16th in a clean and comfortable double bedroom.
Big bathroom for European standards, comfortable bed, and air conditioned.
The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating to our early arrival of 10am which was lovelh (check in is normally 3pm). Fresh apples in the hall for the taking which was nice for our quick exit to the train station in the morning.
Location is a minute walk to the Grote Market for shopping and dining galore.
