This was our third Christmas in a row staying at this fabulous hotel. For us it was like returning home rather than starting a holiday! The warmth of the staff and the familiarity of the surroundings was just the start we needed. The reception and the restaurant Zocher have been renovated and add an extra dimension and new level of...

The location of this hotel, at the end of the Grote Hout Straat, which is the main pedestrian shopping street, makes it an ideal location from which to venture out on your exploration of Haarlem. There are several museums within walking distance, including the famous Frans Hals museum. The St. Bavo cathedral, where Mozart once played and the grand old...

room was nice and comfortable, not too small with a good bathroom. On the plus side there were coffee making facilities in the room which we appreciated. Another plus was no silly mini-bar. The hotel is well located to wander into town. Parking in the hotel is quite expensive as is breakfast.

This hotel is nearly perfect. Good location near the charming city center of Haarlem. Very nice restaurant and bar, with excellent breakfast buffet. Above all: outstandingly nice and helpful staff. Why not 5 stars then? Two minor irritations. First: parking in the building is a rip off at 30€ per day. You can park in the street, but it is...

The hotel was beautiful and had so many amenities (free mini bar!). All the hosts spoke English and even though it is a bit far from Amsterdam, the public transit system makes it easy to go back and forth.
