This was a wonderful little hotel. The room was comfortable, we had a beautiful view of the cathedral, the breakfast was excellent and there were wonderful places to eat very close by, and Haarlem is a beautiful little city.

I stayed at this hotel for a month on business. The hotel is excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. This hotel is close to the bus routes and the station. A further plus are the Saturday markets, in the square and in town. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed one night with family. The hotel is in the city centre which is convenient for restaurants and shops, but quite noisy during the night. Breakfast is ok, but queue on Sunday morning. The hotel bar is quite basic, but there are many alternatives around the corner. The car park is adjacent to the hotel. Rooms are basic, but...

For me it was just a short visit to see old friends from my time living in Haarlem. The location and quality of the hotel is perfect for my needs when I do come back to visit. I use the hotel as a base point to go to visit various friends in the area.

I stayed at the Frans Hals for two night whilst visiting the area on business. The hotel is just a short 10 minute walk from the train station and only 1 minute from the main square. My room was spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed and although it was overlooking the pedestrianized road at the front of the hotel, there...

The Frans Hals Grand Hotel is the place to stay when visiting Haarlem, The Netherlands. This place is clean, spotless, organized, and efficient...no hassles at all. Plus, the location is superb--a one-minute walk from the St. Bove Cathedral, the most beautiful sight in town. The staff are great, the rooms are cozy, the shower is warm and powerful, and the...

The hotel itself is ok, but nothing extraordinary. Decent sized room (no ironing board unfortunately), but my shower did not really work the way it should. Breakfast was basic, but had the common choices. The fact most of the rooms are centered around a central staircase means it is a bit noisy sometimes. Faded glory as far as I'm concerned,...

There are a couple of things that I didn't care for much in the Frans Hals. One of them is the lack of a walk-in shower. I hate having to step into the bath. The second is the poor Wi-Fi. It's free, which is what I expect from hotels now, but its throughput was pretty feeble at times. But these...

The Amrath Grand Hotel Frans Hals proved a good choice for a one night stay in Haarlem. It is central and has welcoming, professional staff. Our fourth floor room was quiet and very comfortable. It's just a couple of minutes' walk to the cathedral from the hotel.

A very pleasant hotel, very friendly staff, nothing was too much, and the breakfast was very good too! There was a little noise from the street outside in the (saturday)night, which is to be expected for a city center location, and we had not specifically requested a quiet room, but nothing much.
