“Service is great. Bring your shampoo and conditioner.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

This is a little gem conveniently located across from the train station in Haarlem. The rooms are recently renovated, the wireless internet is free and works, the restaurant and bar are really good and the service is great. The front desk people were very helpful with advice and a variety of little things that make a stay in a hotel much more comfortable. Beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. Price was quite reasonable also but why so stingy with the body products?

The hotel is situated on the square where the main railway station is located. Superb for getting in and out of Amsterdam. It is about a 10minute walk to the main square in Haarlem from this hotel. Receptionists were all very friendly & efficient, room was very well cleaned each day & breakfast was as you would expect.

Since 1992, I come as guest to the Hotel Golden Tulip Lion d'OR, once or twice a year. I have seen regular updates of the rooms as well as the general areas. The service is friendly and very customer oriented. From Amsterdam Airport it is easy to take the bus, every 10 minutes, (maroon R-NET 300) to HAARLEM Railroad Station. The Hotel is a a few steps from where the bus brings you.
I should mention that business travelers will feel home too and there are conference rooms.
Haarlem is a fine city with many historic sites and and some great museums. The Frans Hals Museum is very special.

A great hotel with 1st class customer service. Highly recommended. Room was nice and clean. Could do with some modernising but well looked after. We checked in for a wedding and the hotel arranged an early check in so could get ready for the service.

It is the second time we stayed in the hotel. It offers a good base from which to visit the cosy city of Haarlem and combine it with a trip to the nearby seaside and especially Amsterdam which is only 20 minutes away by train. Compared with the poor value proposition of hotels in Amsterdam this makes the hotel a very attractive alternative from which to visit Amsterdam in my opinion. I don't see any real drawbacks to the hotel. The parking situation is not ideal but hotel staff explains it well. The rooms offer good sleep quality which I consider very important. Good price/quality for The Netherlands.

We stayed at this hotel in Haarlem in stead of staying in Amsterdam. The close proximity to the railway station and the center of Haarlem makes it a very convenient place to stay and start your daily travels. Haarlem is a beautiful city smaller and more relaxed than Amsterdam which allows you for an comfortable retreat. The commute to Amsterdam is 4 times every hour and takes a 15-20 minutes only (3,90 Euro fare per person one way).
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful in pointing out practicalities - such as a free parking space just one train-station down the line to Amsterdam. The rooms are tidy, have a safe and the beds extremely comfortable. The rooms are quiet, the breakfeast quite OK though not extraordinary.
We paid 263 Euro for two persons for two nights incl breakfast.

I have stayed here may times but never written a review. The golden tulip is in a decent location - just out of the centre of Haarlem (righ next to station and about 5 mins walk from main square). The rooms are basic, but clean and with everything you need. Price is reasonable for Halland (c95 euro a night). The place has a decent small bar and restaurant. Breakfast is also decent (help yourself to all the usual continental breakfast things).

All in all you cant fault this place at all - its not luxury by any means - but does exactly what you would want it to do if your in Haarlem for either business or pleasure.

Location is great as i stated above - its right next to the station (although you cant her trains all night) with a direct line to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: There atre 3 floors - all are similar so no real advice needed on room choice as there is a lift to...
