“VERY average. Paid 170EUR 2 nights for double room.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Great location. Average room with outdated decor. The bathroom was like a closet and towels were kept on a towel rack just outside the bathroom.

You could easily hear other hotel guests coming and going.

A bit minimal for the price I paid for the room.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This is the second time I have stayed here for a week's holiday. Its location within Harlingen is excellent, the rooms very comfortable, the staff friendly and breakfast of a very high standard. The only shortcoming for those with reduced mobility would be the absence of a lift and the steep, winding staircase to the upper floors.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2007

The room we had was ok but pretty cold even with the central heating on, which was a bit surprising for September.

Its a great location in the centre of town, but unless you want to pay a fortune for parking you need to arrive after 6pm. If you stay for more than one night and leave your car in the street during the day it could turn into a fairly expensive stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2007

Stayed at the Hotel Centraal in Harlingen, NL for two nights in May while visiting friends in the city. The hotel is located in the center of town within walking distance of all Harlingen activities. The Hotel staff were very friendly and helpfull and all spoke excellent english. There is only public street parking in front of the hotel at the parking meter rates. We stayed in the "Deluxe" rooms which are totally refurbished and in a new section at the rear of the hotel. The regular rooms are located in the floors above the original hotel. The "deluxe" rooms are spacious and clean with a large bathroom. A great breakfast was included for the E87 price. Harlingen is a delightful little city directly on the ocean.
