I was a little concerned about the location next to a multi-storey car park but I needn't have been as the location was quiet and only a short walk from the centre of Haarlem and bus stops. The Wi-Fi was excellent even using a VPN....More

About the neighborhood
Haarlem is the provincial capital of North Holland, located on the banks of the Spaarne river and is a relaxed city, full of picturesque canals, charming streets, hidden gardens (Hofjes), quality restaurants and many of the best Dutch museums. The city is a historical beer brewing centre and has a lively culture and active nightlife. A one minute walk from the house will lead you to ‘Kleine Houtstraat’, a pretty boutique shopping street voted to be the best in The Netherlands many times.
The popular beach village of Zandvoort is also only 15 minutes by train from the city centre and Haarlem is very central for day trips throughout the Netherlands with excellent road and train systems and extensive bicycle routes.
Getting around
The neighbourhood surrounding Charming House is quiet and Haarlem is a safe city to walk at night time. We provide 2 bicycles for guest's use and there are more available to hire within the city, however the house is very central and the city easily accessible on foot. Buses and trains are just a short walk from the house.The train station is located within a 10-15 minute walk or quick bus ride.
Paid parking is available in the carpark directly next door. Free parking is also available within a quick 5 minute walk. (For further information on this please see our note on the facey page)

It is best to take the Bus Route 300 towards Haarlem, this takes about 30 minutes. You can buy a ticket on the bus, with coins and notes. You will need to get off the bus at stop called 'Verwulft'. There should be adequate signage in the bus, but if unsure, just ask the driver and they will be happy to help you.
After you get off the bus, turn and cross to the other side of the street and turn left and walk back along 'Gedempte Oude Grach', in the direction that the bus came from.
After approximately 350 metres, after crossing the popular 'Kleine Houtstraat' shopping street and walking down the slight hill, turn right into this pedestrian street of 'De Witstraat', walk past the entrance of the garage and left at the...
