The Frans Hals Grand Hotel is the place to stay when visiting Haarlem, The Netherlands. This place is clean, spotless, organized, and efficient...no hassles at all. Plus, the location is superb--a one-minute walk from the St. Bove Cathedral, the most beautiful sight in town. The staff are great, the rooms are cozy, the shower is warm and powerful, and the...

The hotel itself is ok, but nothing extraordinary. Decent sized room (no ironing board unfortunately), but my shower did not really work the way it should. Breakfast was basic, but had the common choices. The fact most of the rooms are centered around a central staircase means it is a bit noisy sometimes. Faded glory as far as I'm concerned,... More

There are a couple of things that I didn't care for much in the Frans Hals. One of them is the lack of a walk-in shower. I hate having to step into the bath. The second is the poor Wi-Fi. It's free, which is what I expect from hotels now, but its throughput was pretty feeble at times. But these... More

The Amrath Grand Hotel Frans Hals proved a good choice for a one night stay in Haarlem. It is central and has welcoming, professional staff. Our fourth floor room was quiet and very comfortable. It's just a couple of minutes' walk to the cathedral from the hotel.

A very pleasant hotel, very friendly staff, nothing was too much, and the breakfast was very good too! There was a little noise from the street outside in the (saturday)night, which is to be expected for a city center location, and we had not specifically requested a quiet room, but nothing much. Beds were very comfortable, and ensuites very nice... More

The Frans Hals came to our rescue when our flight was delayed past midnight and the small boutique hotel we had reserved nearby was closed up tight for the night, leaving us stranded with our luggage in a strange town. The night manager understood our plight, was extremely solicitous, and gave us two clean, well-appointed, quiet, spacious rooms to recover... More

When I arrived I asked for a room away from the street as I tend to be a light sleeper and was concerned about the noise. I believe the receptionist mistakenly thought I asked for a street side room as that is what I got. Room 206. I was not disappointed however as the room was light, airy and had... More

Nice enough hotel, but nothing spectacular. Modern exterior, but slightly old fashioned reception area. Rooms were nice enough, but don't share with anyone other than a partner as the toilet door doesn't lock and is frosted glass, which could be awkward as you can see the silhouette of the person in there. Reception staff were lovely and very helpful. Overall... More

Last weekend we stayed in this hotel. The location is excellent and he hotel staff is verrrrry friendly. The rooms are also nicely decorated and clean. The location is just at the city center. Go around the corner and you are at the St Bavo church.
