We stayed at the Ambassador City Centre Hotel in June 2013. We stayed in Haarlem instead of Amsterdam because we prefer a small town atmosphere. We were not disappointed. Haarlem is a fine city with familiar Dutch architecture and lovely canals.The hotel was located on the Grote Market Square with the huge, Gothic St Bavo Church as it's centerpiece.
The hotel was very appealing. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. It overlooked a pleasant side street lined with charming cafe's. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. They were more than willing to give us information and advice. The breakfast room was beautifully decorated and the food that was served was ample and delicious. The breakfast was an extra charge, but well worth the price. We enjoyed meat, cheese, boiled eggs, pastries, breads, cereal and milk, fresh and canned fruit, coffee, and tea. It was interesting and encouraging to us that the hotel was the take-off point for Rick Steve's The Best of Europe Tour. We always read his travel guides and follow his direction, so the fact that he used the Ambassador City Centre Hotel was a very positive endorsement.
We also appreciated the fact that the train station was only a short walk away from the hotel.
