“Great Location in Haarlem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Stayed here on business for a few weeks, nice place, much like all other hotels to be honest, big rooms, very clean, breakfast was pleasant, staff are helpful... My client is not far from Schiphol, so stayed here as I hate airport hotels, people departing rooms at 3am waking you up, so stayed slightly further away, probably an extra 15 Euros in a taxi from the groups of airport holiday inns, we worth the extra though.
Haarlem is a great place town, true Netherlands place, great cobbled streets with shops, canals & lots and lots of places to eat.

This hotel has been great for a ling weekend. Great location(we have been able to walk everywhere) close to both retail therapy excursions and culture! We had an issue with our key card not working, but the hotel provided us with an easy work around.

Great central Haarlem location. Nice size rooms. Unusual single bed structure......all rooms have single beds only, with or without "links". Single beds have tiny mattresses and duvets. In my multi night stay once I got my larger "linked" bed the bottom sheets were only uncomfortable single mattress sheets. Nice shower facilities; airconditioning struggling. Nice staff at breakfast service; reception staff forgot to timely communicate urgent messages. No gym or restaurant facilities but good number of restaurants around the hotel. A lot of rooms are street side; quite noisy at night and early morning with commercial traffic.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-streetside double bedded (there are no large mattress beds) room on the 3rd floor.

This hotel is in a perfect location in Haarlem. The staff was friendly and as helpful as can be, even letting us check in at 8am after a long flight from the U.S. We had fully expected to just store our luggage and wander around town until the 3pm check in time, so what a surprise when they let us in so early. The breakfast was also excellent, as was the room itself. A highly recommended place to stay!

Room Tip: Try for a corner room, they are a bit larger.

We stayed here last week and were very impressed. We had visited Haarlem last summer, just as a day trip, and liked the look of it very much. Although we were staying in Amsterdam (which we love) Haarlem was highly recommended to us by several Dutch people.

We weren't at all disappointed. The hotel is bang in the centre of the town, and right beside all the lovely bars and restaurants. The room we had was enormous, with a very amply stocked mini-bar, free Wi-Fi, and bathroom with a Jacuzzi. We found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful too. There was also tea and coffee in the room, which is always an nice touch.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone who is thinking of visiting Haarlem. You will be delighted with your stay, and indeed, the whole Haarlem experience.

We stayed for just a night here, but had a good one. Friendly staff welcomed us and the room was good with everything you need. The airconditioning was just a little noisy and did not cool the room properly. But the location is what makes this hotel great as well, next to the Great Market and near the famous Teylers and Frans Hals musea. Parking under the hotel is expensive though, so try to avoid that. Recommended.

Very comfortable 3 night stay at the Fran Hals Haarlem, the sweeping staircase was quite a feature.
Rooms were comfortable and spacious with TV and tea & coffee maiking facilities.
Rooms very clean and tidy, air conditioned and well lit, plenty of towels, pillows & a bathrobe.
Breakfast was a buffet with a hot or cold choice.
Hotel did not have a restaurant, but that encourages you to go out and try the numerous eating places locally. "The Nobel" around the corner being one of the places we ate at, Yum!!
Staff were pleasant and helpful and have a good knowledge of eating places.
There is a really lovely atmosphere in the local eating places where you can chat and eat without the worry of talking over loud music. Bliss!!!!
