Stayed here for a couple of nights on a last minut booking to visit Haarlem. The location is ideal right next to the train station and bus terminus. Ideal for arriving into Holland from Schipol airport the bus drops you off just metres from the hotel. Walking into the centre of historic Haarlem again takes only a few minutes. We stayed B+B in one of the superior double rooms and were greeted on arrival by excellent service in fluent English. Our room was very pleasant and large and exceptionally clean. The bathroom was spotless. My only slight criticism was the memory foam mattresses on the split king size bed. I struggled to sleep on the memory foam the first night with some better sleep the next, preferring the more classic firm hotel mattresses. A few pictures on the walls would have been nice.
There was unfortunatley no restaurant or bar or room service when we arrived on the Sunday evening but we had some sandwiches with us so it wasn't a problem to us.
Breakfast was a typical buffet help yourself in a light and roomy restaurant. The fresh fruit and yoghurts were very good, but the rest was just average with poor attempts at the sweet offerings,
The staff are friendly and polite and happilty let us leave our luggage for the day until we made our way back to the airport.
Well worth using if convenience and cleanliness are your main needs for a hotel room
