“Great location all-but wasted”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Haarlem is a wonderful place to visit, with a huge amount of life in the historic square where the Amadeus sits. That's the good news. Unfortunately, we discovered the service from the owner was less than overjoyed, and the outdated and worn decor left much to be desired. We stayed one night in the attic room at the top of the hotel. The great view did not make up for the tiny space or the swing door on the minute bathroom. Stay for the location and view by all means, but don't have high expectations of anything else.

We stayed here for 4 days,while visiting Amsterdam and the area.We loved Haarlem, a smaller version of Amsterdam and so much more peaceful and quiet.
The hotel is on the main square and when the weather is agreeable,you can sit outside and eat and drink while watching the people in the square.
The breakfasts were very good and set you off well for the day.

Upon arrival at Frankfurt AM my friends picked me up and we jetted off to the NL. Stayed at the Amadeus for the day and had a great time.
The proprietors are extremely friendly and gave us advice on local areas of interest upon check in. I believe my share of the cost was €40.
Bedding was ample, bathroom had the usual sundries you would expect while traveling. Everything in the room, and downstairs was kept extremely clean.

I awoke the next morning to the sounds of men shouting directions while tents were being erected in the square. The Market was opening soon, and what a awesome sight-you could soak in the colors all day-Flowers (It was Tulip season), fresh produce, meats, trinkets etc. on display and itching for some Euros from the crowd.

I'll be back, that's for sure.

Room Tip: Enjoy the stair climb ha!

Stayed here recently and was not disappointed,
Very good location on Grote Markt with easy access to Haarlems many bars and restaurants.
10 minute stroll to Haarlem central station.
Breakfast was really good with fresh produce and the hotel cat Spikey was a good companion.
Price was reasonable.... all things considered. Would happily return.

Room Tip: Try to get a square facing room.

I stayed for one night over the Easter holiday. It cost me £32 and that included breakfast. I had a single room which was comfortable and clean with a small (but very clean) shower room. Perfectly acceptable.

The room was no frills but had everything I needed including hair dryer TV and even tea and coffee which is unusual in Holland. You can go to an expensive hotel in Holland and not get this!

The hotel is every centrally placed. Staff were lovely. Breakfast was a continental style in a nice restaurant. I had absolutely no complaints at all and would recommend it to anyone.

I will definitely use this hotel again

The room was very small but perfectly OK for one person and one night. Tiny bathroom, but very clean; only the shower was not very good: no flexible hose, 2 taps for hot and cold water. Nice breakfast.

The location of the hotel is simply great,just in the market square;but its design is so poor that sometimes you feel to be a young student travelling with a terrible low budget.Everything needs painting,restoring,changing ...but it is clean and affordable.

Room Tip: if you cannot have one of the three rooms looking on the market, ask for n.31...very small one, but...
