We booked our 7-night stay at Where Els B&B four months in advance after reading all of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Reineke, the proprietor, was every bit as nice and accommodating as fellow travelers have described. When I told her about my Dutch ancestry, she really went above and beyond by providing me a link to a Dutch geneaology site that listed my American relatives! Reineke was able to arrange for ultra-low cost bike rental (ask about OV Feits).
We really enjoyed staying at her place. With all the nice touches she provided, as well as the wonderful breakfasts, drinks, patio, refrigerator and kitchen, it felt very much like home!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ‘Where Els’ is ideally located in the heart of Haarlem. A great base from which to explore the Netherlands.These cosy houses suit very well for couples, groups and families. Located in a small street which is surprisingly quite considering the location - even during the night. Just steps away from shopping, restaurants and the famous Groote Markt (centre square).There is always a lot to do: many local theatre, music and dance events take place in Haarlem. Day visits to Amsterdam and The Hague are very easy. Where Els is a short walk to the train station where six trains per hour depart to take you straight to the centre of Amsterdam (15mins) and to The Hague (40mins). The North Sea with beautiful sandy dunes and beaches are just 10 minutes by car or 30 minutes bike to the west. The coastal towns of Zandvoort and Bloemendaal are great places for lunch or dinner by the sea. Your day will start in the breakfast room where you will get a sumptuous breakfast with fresh biological produce from the local market. All rooms are fully equipped with snacks, drinks TV, DVD, CD, wifi internet, clean, comfortable bedding and a private ensuite bathroom. Note: Just a 15 minute drive from Schiphol international airport. ... more less
