We greatly enjoyed this hotel. It is immediately across from the old church in Haarlem. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Haarlem train station. Service was excellent. Breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip, a little pricey at 12.5 euros per person, but very good typical european hotel breakfast with some extras.
The room was very nice, the only reason I did not give 5 stars was the bedding. The bed is great, but the sheets were worn and had a stain on them. Otherwise this is a great place, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

In other words, a place with a rich history, renovated into a modern hotel-restaurant, full of cosy atmosphere, right in the centre of the monumental heart of Haarlem. The well known Haarlem restaurant owner, Frans van Cappelle, wish to extend a warm welcome to you. On the first, second and third floor of the building are seventeen hotel rooms.

All rooms are provided with Hästens beds, airconditioning, a flat screen television set, a computer, free (wireless-) internet facilities, toilet and a shower. The luxury rooms and suites also have a bath.
