Nice rooms, comfy bed, friendly staff, convenient location. We stayed only one night in Haarlem and this hotel was perfect for us. We came to see the Frans Hals Museum, and that was very easily within walking distance. Another plus, parking was in a large garage right below the hotel. The pleasant neighborhood made us wish we could stay longer.

This hotel is located just outside the most central part of Haarlem, with short walking distance to all shops and restaurants. The reception area is nice, however the room came across as a bit old fashioned because of very yellow interiors (wallpaper, floor carpet, curtains, bedspread). There was a bit of noise from the corridor reaching the room, but in...

The Carlton Square is a nice experience. The rooms are clean but not very modern. However the beds are great and the rooms have most facilities requested by a business traveler.

This is a lovely little hotel in the suburb of Haarlem. Nice little balcony but it does tend to get noisy late at nights by drunks and yobs congregating in the square outside. The reception staff are nice, Richard is exceptionally helpful and friendly a couple of the girls appear a little aloof. Try the Bitterballs from the restaurant.

The hotel stay was fantastic . This was booked through my company , though not in Amsterdam . The city of haarlem is quiet and so was the stay. The rooms were spacious and the complementary breakfast spread was awesome. Loved the stay, and there are restaurants near by if one wants different cuisine.

Spent 3 nights in a room on 5th floor. Good reception team, everywhere well-maintained and clean. Hired bikes for 2 days from the hotel, which were in good condition too. Breakfast buffet had a lot of choice, including eggs cooked to order. The reception staff spoke to everyone who passed by the desk and were helpful with information.
