“A night of luxury”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I staid here the night after the finalization of the sale of my house in Haarlem. I thought I'd spoil myself a little. I had a great room under the roof, it was very large and with nice beams supporting the ceiling. A wonderful bathtub and a separate shower, and the soaps etc came from my favorite store "Rituals". The breakfast was lovely. The Wifi worked fine. And the bed is a Hastens! I've always wanted to sleep in one. A great last night in the city I've lived in for 11 years.

We stayed here for 3 nights over New Year. The (superior) room was very spacious, shower was very powerful. The beds like most in Holland seem to have very shallow mattress so we found this a bit too firm for our liking. The hotel itself is a beautifully preserved old building, with wonderful original cornicing etc. The staff are extremely helpful. We had dinner on New Years Eve in the Bistro the choice was fairly limited, but the food itself was excellent. Breakfast is self service with the usual cold European cheeses and meats. There was also scrambled eggs - boiled eggs and bacon available. Also a variety of breads and pastries. Enough to keep you going almost until the evening.

I really liked my room, very spacious, clean and comfortable. Their meeting rooms were also well ventilated and of good standard. Restaurant a bit bland though. The staff were friendly and very informative. Internet speed ok and the location was excellent; was able to quickly go shopping between sessions as the shopping centre was only about 10 minutes by foot
I would gladly stay again

In the center of old Haarlem opposite the old Bavo catherdal (1559), this hotel is in the best spot in Haarlem. You can park your car in an underground parking next to the hotel. This hotel is in a beautiful old building, that used to be the old mint of the Netherlands.
The owners have done a great job in maintaining the old details (wooden ceilings etc ) of the building. The rooms are spacious, light, luxurious and simple at the same time. The beds are simply great (Hästens beds). The breakfast is good. The lunches and dinners are fantastic. Even only for one night, we enjoyed it very much and we will certainly return.

I spent a coule of days at the Stempels as part of a wedding party. I had a very spacious and comfortable room (superior room). The staff is very friendly and attended rapidly to my request of an iron (not in room). The bed was great and shower with the right pressure and hot water. Very clean and simple decor. Breakfast was good value for money. This is a must for anybody visiting Haarlem. You cannot ask for a better location (5' walk from the oldest museum in NL, the Teyler museum). I haven't tried the restaurant but I went to the cafe and it has a great atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable.
One minus point, though: no coffee maker in the room (for the times you are too lazy to change from your pijama's to go downstairs) and the computer, which is way too low and can do with an upgrade.

Room Tip: I had room 10 and it was less noisy than the rooms other friends got (I was not facing the church bu...

My room was fantastic, clean, spacious and stylish. The woman at the front desk was very helpful with directions to the Frans Hals Museum. The bed was so comfy and I slept so well. The Brasserie downstairs had very good food for lunch and the waitstaff were very kind.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise from Amsterdam and were very happy. The staff were very pleasant and helpful upon checking in and throughout our visit and the room was good sized and quiet despite facing the street (double paned windows no doubt helped). Although it was just at the top of the stairs, we didn't hear noise from down below because of a double door "foyer" arrangement which effectively sealed off the main room itself from that area. Only drawback was that the doors were fairly substantial and hard to prop open, but all in all, a small price to pay for a restful night's sleep. Bed was very comfortable, room was air conditioned and had a computer with free internet. Location was about as central as you can get as it is right beside the St. Bavo Church and not far from the Grote Market. Although there is an underground parking facility nearby (De Appelaar), it was almost full when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon. Virtually empty the next morning, however. It does have an elevator that makes it easier to haul up luggage. Hotel is about a short block away. Later, we chose a fixed price dinner which was enjoyable with good service. Breakfast was self-service with a good selection and quality, but like most hotel breakfasts, it was a bit pricey. Popular bar downstairs and cafe with outside tables. Note: The street right outside the hotel shuts down to full vehicular access at 11:00am, so plan accordingly if you need to be collected by someone who does not have a pass to drop the bollards after that (local taxis do). Easiest location seemed to be at the entrance to the parking garage where there is a good pickup/drop off area. As we had been to Amsterdam before, we enjoyed Haarlem much more than Amsterdam as it is smaller, quieter, cleaner, and friendlier. Our stay at Stempels also made it more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: As we had substantial luggage for a cruise, we requested a room with elevator access (some rooms do...

Here at Stempels you are welcome to eat, drink, having a party, to enjoy performances, to organize meetings and stay overnight. This all happens on the premises of the former Joh.
