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.

We stayed here for 4 days and had a blast. From check in until check out we only met friendly people. The room was like expected and the free minibar was a good little extra. Breakfast was very good, and the hotel was just about 7 minutes away from the main walking street. We rented some bikes (when in Netherland...)...

When I first got in the room I sat on the bed, and I almost could not get up and leave. every night I melted into it. It was greatness. It was a short walk to what seems like the center of town. There were many locals on the streets. The cafe downstairs had a nice burger. Very friendly staff...

We stayed here for two nights in July, and we liked Carlton Square a lot. Nice and kind staff, large sized room, bathrobes, slippers, free drinks and snack in room, and a very nice view from the balcony. Beds are perfect, bathroom good sized, and the inclusive breakfast is more than enough. Next time we visit Haarlem (beautiful town) we...

A really good find in a lovely town. This was recommended to us by a friend. It is a great location, a short walk from the center of the town and close to lots of excellent restaurants. Paying the extra for the Deluxe room is worth while as it includes a complimentary minibar which is well stocked.

This hotel has everything! The rooms are very spacious and scenic. Great decor, comfy beds and well stocked fridge. I had a lovely view of the park behind. The whiskey selection here is really great and the knowledge the bar staff have is really something else. It truly felt like a 5 star experience here. I am defiantly coming back.
