I stayed here for four nights, Jan 7-11, 2016. The location is awesome, right at the bus station and train station. You are a quick 5-7 minute walk to the center of Haarlem, where there are many places to eat, drink and shop. I had room #2, a suite, and it was fine. Very large, as you would expect for...

Stayed here for one night and then left for another night in Gouda and the a further two nights at the Lion D'or. Leaving our main bag between stays was not a problem.

Stayed here for a short business trip in November. Staff pleasant and friendly. Hotel is small but the rooms are surprisingly big. Everything impeccably clean. Location is ideal. Beside the train station and within 10 mins walk from a great selection of shops and restaurants. Will stay again next time I'm in town.

Nice hotel in a location adjacent to the train and bus stations in Haarlem. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but I must add that shoving two double beds together does not qualify as a queen bed.
