“Great place to stay in Haarlem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Stempels is a great place to stay, location perfect, beds perfect and very good quality for the price. Located in the middle of Haarlem, makes it the perfect place for coming to Haarlem. Food in the restaurant is also above average.

Great location in a car free area surrounded by cafes and restaurants. Room was large but was cold (even with heating turned up) and there wasn't a mini bar so no water e.t.c. Breakfast was nice but limited and the restaurant was excellent. Service polite and friendly.

Highly recommended.

My room was so lovely! The decor was simple and modern with such a comfortable bed and fluffy duvet. The bathroom was modern and clean as well. I had lunch and dinner at the charming restaurant. The staff were friendly and cheerful! I wish all hotels could be like this!

The hotel is located ideally in the very centre of Haarlem and right on top of a public parking where you can leave your car. The restaurant, bar and brasserie of the hotel are very nice and I use them regularly. The staff is trully committed to their work and to the guests and are very pleasant and welcoming. Breakfast is average but the breakfast room with fireplace is very nice.

Unfortunately my room was one of the worst I have slept in for a long time. I had room 18 facing an inner courtyard of the hotel just above the restaurant or kitchen. The smell in the room was horrible and the noise of some ventilator humming unavoidable. If you open the window the sound gets worse obviously. So the choice is between fresh air or silence. As a result I had neither of them and hardly slept in a noisy, smelly room.

I would recommend the hotel I guess under the assumption that I just had a bad room and that the other rooms are better.

Room Tip: Take a room facing the church. Avoid the rooms facing the inner courtyard.

This is a gem. The people are warm hearted and friendly without being intrusive. They really care about their guests and will go out of their way to accommodate them. The rooms are very well appointed and refined. The kitchen is excellent. During the last five years of visiting Holland, Stempels became my second home. Out of the many hotels that I visited in over thirty years of global travelling, this is my favourite.

I staid here the night after the finalization of the sale of my house in Haarlem. I thought I'd spoil myself a little. I had a great room under the roof, it was very large and with nice beams supporting the ceiling. A wonderful bathtub and a separate shower, and the soaps etc came from my favorite store "Rituals". The breakfast was lovely. The Wifi worked fine. And the bed is a Hastens! I've always wanted to sleep in one. A great last night in the city I've lived in for 11 years.

Here at Stempels you are welcome to eat, drink, having a party, to enjoy performances, to organize meetings and stay overnight. This all happens on the premises of the former Joh.

In other words, a place with a rich history, renovated into a modern hotel-restaurant, full of cosy atmosphere, right in the centre of the monumental heart of Haarlem. The well known Haarlem restaurant owner, Frans van Cappelle, wish to extend a warm welcome to you. On the first, second and third floor of the building are seventeen hotel rooms.
