The best hotel during our one month trip to Europe. Nice silent rooom. Breakfast and food in the restaurant outstanding. Everybody in the staff were polite and serviceminded and made more than you could expect. 5 minutes from Frans Hals museum.

The wonderful city of Haarlem has some challenges - parking being one and in particular parking near the centre and hotels unless you arrive by train or cab. This hotel is just a short walk from the centre of Haarlem and has the advantage of having a public parking garage underneath - not a cheap one but nonetheless convenient for... More

First off, I was glad I chose to stay 3 nights in Haarlem. We found it more charming than Delft. We were lucky that the Flower Parade passed by the Carlton Square (about 20 or so steps to the route). The following day it was a very short walk to where the flower floats can be admired up close. Walking... More

Carlton Square Hotel is a nice hotel. The hotel is located about 1.8 Kms from Haarlem station and finding direct bus from station is a bit difficult. There were no taxies either.
