“Very nice, clean and modern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

A great place to stay in the dead center of beautiful Haarlem! Very functional hotel with nice rooms and friendly staff.

From my windows, I had an amazing view of the church (cathedral, maybe?).

Breakfast was delicious and varied.

Room Tip: You should ask for a room with windows towards the pedestrian street. You will have a stunning view...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is a lovely hotel right in the midst of tons of great restaurants, near the Grosmarkt and the Cathedral, situated in the old city. The rooms are contemporary and clean and the staff is great. The wifi in the rooms is ify- others at the desk were also asking for help, but workable if you are patience. The only drawback is the amount of street noise if you are in one of the rooms that face the front of the building and street. There is a local pub 3 doors down that rocks an outdoor crowd (even when it is quite cold) until about 1 am. All talking by foot traffic can be heard even with windows closed. I would stay again, but request a quite room off the street.

Room Tip: See review-request to be off the main street

This hotel is right in the heart of the historic center of Haarlem. It was an easy walk to all of the local restaurants and bars as well as the town square.

Rooms were very clean and larger than expected. We didn't eat the breakfast but it looked great as I walked past.

You can't go wrong with this hotel in Haarlem.

I visited this hotel during mid-winter (-7°C and snow) for a business meeting, and made use of meeting rooms as well hotel rooms. All in all this is an excellent establishment. Good service from a friendly staff, nice clean rooms. Great location near the Haarlem cathedral. In walking distance of a few good restaurants.

The downside was the poor lunch meal with only some sandwiches, but I think that is on the organizer and not the hotel. Another downside was that the rooms were a bit cold. The dutch are not used to temperatures this cold and we needed to ask them to turn up the heating a bit.

the staff is kind and professional.
hotel rooms are a bit small, but clean, apart a slight stinky smell of the linen.
wifi connection is ok.
Hotel is in the middle of city, so very convenient for shopping or night dinner, but not really convenient for car park.
Average rates are expensive.

The Amrath is a lovely small hotel in central Haarlem, which is a bus ride away from Amsterdam without all the hustle and bustle. Close to shops, cafe and the people are warm and friendly. The hotel has this beautiful stain glassed ceiling, heated bath floors, and the staff is wonderful! I will be going back 12/14/2013.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel is very quiet, but I don't think the noise level from the front would be t...

To start our trip to the Netherlands off, we chose to stay one night in Haarlem to acclimate and recover from jet-lag before moving on to Amsterdam. Because we wanted no surprises, and a good night sleep, Amrath Grand Hotel Frans Hals turned out to be a good choice. Modern, comfortable rooms, great location (easy walk from train and into the main square), reasonably priced, and super helpful staff (over email and in person).

Agree, breakfast is overpriced. We just wanted some coffee, fruit and yogurt (which proved hard to find at 7 AM - finally found a grocery). Anyway, other than that, I recommend the hotel.
