“Great location, ok hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is located directly at the central square in Haarlem. You have to check in at the restaurant bar next to the hotel entry. The people are very nice, the rates are good, but the rooms are small and a bit shabby. Breakfast is nice. Great for a night away with friends, lesser appropriate for a romantic getaway.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with friends

We've stayed here a couple times and will definitely return! Reasonably priced, friendly owner (Mike) and staffed appropriately for the type of hotel that it is. It kind of irritates me when folks (generally we Americans) visit Europe, stay in a mom & pop type local place and expect the Ritz Carlton. The stairs are steep, the hallways narrow, the elevator is closet-like and the rooms/bathrooms are "cozy"...but here's a little secret...It's HOLLAND and most of the buildings are older than the US of A!

Rereading that last little bit may make this place seem kind of dumpy to some, it's totally not! But if you're looking for high end services and amenities, you probably want to move along.

We like the Amadeus when visiting Keukenhof. Bus service from the train station runs regularly to and from the flower property. This last time we also took the train/bus to Kroller-Mueller museum in Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe. The trip out to the park makes for an all day event, so if jamming a ton of things in to every day is something you like to do, you may want to skip that one.

Two of three times we've stayed at Amadeus our room overlooked the square (preferred), and there was a carnival going on in the square on those weekends. I think it shut down around 11 or midnight, but we're rarely in bed that early when traveling, so it wasn't a problem for us. I saw some complaints about bar noise making it into rooms; I don't doubt those reviews, but that hasn't been our experience. Once the carnival shuts down, it's relatively quiet. We've stayed on several squares, and in busy-ish neighborhoods around the Netherlands and there are ALWAYS late night revelers enjoying themselves as they pass under your windows. If activity at night is something you need to avoid, you may not enjoy staying in any city center around the Netherlands. You'll be relegated to modern buildings on the outskirts of town...to each his own, I suppose.

First, Haarlem is the absolute place to stay when visiting Amsterdam/Netherlands..great old town with a beautiful town square and great access to train to Amsterdam. And right in the center of the square is the Amadeus..with short walks to lots of quant eating places, people watching, museums, cathedral, the Corrie Ten Boom hiding place, etc., etc. Of course the hotel is old and small as are the rooms, but that adds to the uniqueness. The only downside for me are the narrow steps leading up to the lobby. It's similar to bizillions of Italian family owned hotels are are quirky, quant, and in buildings many times older than the USA.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in June.The location was probably the most redeeming quality of the hotel.Our room was at the very top of the hotel,over looking the square.The view was awesome,especially at night. However the earplugs that were provided were utilized due to the noise from the bar that did not stop until early morning. The room was very basic and the tiny bathroom with the swinging doors was a little uncomfortable.The breakfast was nice,I wish we would have sat outside at one of the tables earlier during our stay,sitting outside seeing Haarlem wake up was very nice. It is very much a basic hotel,but you really can't beat the location and the price was reasonable.

This hotel has a very good location in a charming city near Amsterdam.
Amadeus is a 2 star hotel and that is what it is. We got a tiny room on second floor with view to the back of many old buildings. It was very hot and to open the window to a common smoking balcony vas not tempting. Owr shower over flooded due to problems with the drain.
The first night the old elevator did not worked and we had to use some very steep steps and with problems with my knee this was not fun.

Room Tip: Choose a room with view to the square.

This hotel has an ideal location right on the Main Square. Some reviewers has mentioned the noise from the Square, however my room (not on the hotel front) was quiet and there was no noise to speak of. I'd definately stay there again

This hotel has a brilliant location being in the central market square close to all attractions.

It is very definitely only a two star hotel and our room and corridors needed a very good lick of paint. Nevertheless, for a budget hotel it is very reasonable. We had a room with a lovely view over the square. It was very quiet though may be noisier at weekends. The breakfast in a traditional Dutch room on the ground floor, also used as a café, was simple but very .good.
