“decent enough place to stay a night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a simple hotel/motel located near the motorway. It is not the cheapest place to stay, especially for what you get. The rooms are clean but basic. Near the football stadium and about 20 minutes walking distance from the city centre.

Situated near the football ground and 20 minutes walk from town it is a good clean efficient hotel. I stayed for two nights and slept well both nights. I ate in the bar after a long day travelling and the service was very quick, the burger was good and the beer cold. the bar staff were very friendly and happy for us just to sit and eat at the bar. I feel I am cheating them to give an average score but it is not a 'great' hotel just a good one and I wish there was a 3.5 star rating..
Positives are many, staff all very helpful. Free soft peppermints at reception! Clean large functional rooms. Free internet which is reasonably fast. Breakfast was average. But I ate well slept well and have nothing but praise for the staff. So a good stay...

Family trip at Easter with a one night stopover at this hotel in a family room. The room was enormous, with a large double bed and a bunk bed almost lost in it! Beds clean and comfortable. Bathroom, again enormous. However, the rooms and the common areas lacked any style and soul - just very functional.

Comprehensive, tasty fresh breakfast buffet. The hotel is about one mile into the centre of town. We cycled (but could easily have walked) in to see the cheese market, which was a blessing because parking was very difficult. The centre of the city is lovely, with a great cafe culture after the market has closed down.

Overall, certainly no regrets or complaints about the hotel, but just felt it could be so much better with not a lot of cost but just a bit of thought put into it.

We stayed here for 1 night to visit the region. Very convinient location if you have a car - right off the main ring road around alkmaar, so easy to get to and around the region. We visited Schoorl, which is very worthwhile. The centre of Alkmaar is 20 mins away walking, which is what we did, although their is a bus as well, but we didn't test that.

The room is good sized, everything that you would expect. The wifi wasn't smoothe though - we had to collect a code from reception, and then it still didn't work.

Breakfast is good, with a good selection of typically dutch breakfast items.

The staff are nice and friendly, and even put up with us speaking in our broken, slow dutch (this isn't always the case - Dutch can sometimes be a very hard language to practice with the natives).

We were staying in the hotel for one night. The hotel is quite good located and can be easily reach from the center by taxi which costs about 10 euro. The room was basic but spatious and clean. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The restaurant was excellent and breakfast buffet was varied so everyone could find something for themselves. The price was reasonable and I received what I expected.

Looking for a good hotel in the city of Alkmaar, think of this Golden Tulip. It is welll situated near the motor highway, but still in the city. With own parkingspace, good food and nice staff, this is a good accomodation.
Breakfast could be a bit better though: some items (for example scrambled eggs) were not available anymore at approx. 07:30 am.
Also, the bedrooms are very standard and sober, but with a lot of space and the bed was good!

Nice location. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful regarding things to do in the area. She was also efficient at checking us in for the night.

The room was spacious and overlooked the main street. It was pretty and even though on the street side it was quiet. No street noise.

The price was reasonable for the quality of room and service we received.

The only down side was the breakfast was very costly therefore we chose not to eat here.
