We stayed in this hotel because it was booked by our tour group. The location was excellent & within walking distance to many great sites & the canal. The room, however was not so great. We understand they were in the middle of remodeling & figure they just hadn't gotten to our room yet. The carpet was stained & worn...

My husband & I spent 4 nights at the Ambassador City Hotel in Haarlem. Great location overlooking the beautiful St. Bravo church and one of the town squares. The room was big & comfortable w/3 large windows. The bathroom wasn't cleaned well when we checked in was never cleaned well during our stay. It also needed updating. The carpet in...

Great location for a hotel. Had a nice stay here. The room was nice and clean. My only complaint was it was a little dark in the room. Bed was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Would recommend this hotel!

The hotel helped us out massively by letting us check in early as the room was free, meaning we didn't have to pull our luggage around town in the blazing sunshine. It's a lovely entrance, and breakfast room, and has a lift to take you to your room unlike most other hotels in Haarlem. The room was spacious and the...

Spending two nights here. Ambassador City Hotel is fantastically located. We arrived by train into central Amsterdam. Everyone speaks english and is so helpful. 19 Minutes train ride from Central to Haarlem Stn. And then an easy direct 15 min walk to the hotel. We think if you want to see the real Netherlands get out here. Small cobble stone...

Positive: location, haarlem city center Negative: bad customer service, bad actittude, bad organization, bad breakfast. The staff is: bad trainned, the organization is a disaster. If they can, the manager will charge more money in your invoice than quantity agreed. They owned me 44 euros. I´ll never be back. The worst hotel I have never visited.

My husband, three children (17, 20 & 22) and I stayed at the Joops City Center Hotel, which is part of the Ambassador Hotel. The Joops is about a block from the Ambassador so both checking in and out were not a problem. The Joops doesn't have a lobby so it feels more like an apartment building than a hotel....

Stayed one night at this hotel. Location is very good - near center of the city and near almost everything. Bathroom wasn't clean and the shower was a messy setup. The water isn't contained in a tub - just drains in the middle of the bathroom floor - causing a very wet bathroom (it did come with a squeegee). Carpet...

We were impressed with the lobby and the location. Our room was a decent size and clean, however, the chairs in the room were ripped, the shower was set up quite horrible (there was actually a squeegee in our shower to help not soak the whole bathroom floor.) There was a very small bath mat that was torn, and the...

The monumental Ambassador City Centre Hotel is located in the historic heart of the city of Haarlem facing the St. Bavo Church. For city trippers this friendly hotel is an excellent choice. From the hotel, all the fun and interesting attractions can be easily reached. The train station is only a five-minute walk from the hotel. All rooms in the Ambassador City Centre Hotel*** are non-smoking. The stylish rooms are all marked by their unique interiors. A number of rooms also have a gorgeous view of the St. Bavo Church. The other rooms are at the rear of the hotel where you can rest peacefully in the heart of the city.

The hotel offers all facilities you need for a weekend away or a long stay, for a leisure or a business trip.
