I didn't choose this hotel, the reservation was made for me. It's rather dated and in need of refurbishment, but this is already underway. Reception takes a while to get through the formalities if you haven't stayed at the hotel before. It can be a long walk to the room too, but when you get there these a large and quite comfortable. However they very dimly lit, with heavy dark shades over the lights. Free wifi, TV and tea/coffee making supplies are included. TV channels are mostly local Dutch and German, but a few English language channels are available (BBC and CNN). No sports channels sadly. Bathroom quite large and has a heated floor, which is nice, but a tiny shower cubicle. Try and avoid a room near the exercise studio, that blasts out loud music most of the evening. Some rooms have views of Amsterdam, others less interesting. Downstairs, the hotel bar is well stocked and the bar staff friendly. The restaurant has an excellent menu and though it seems expensive the meals have very generous servings, so is good value. Breakfast offers a very varied choice of hot and cold buffet. Restaurant staff are efficient, friendly and helpful. Haarlem centre is about a mile away, so it's not really convenient for tourists wanting to eat out locally.
