We picked this hotel because of the location but could have picked it for any other reason: reasonably priced, friendly and professional staff, nothing is too much trouble and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Breakfast adequate but a little like a Holiday Inn Express with more variety. Perfect for city exploring! Try to get rooms... More

The location was perfect, your staff was kind and helpful, and even during World Cup matches, the hotel remained quiet and comfortable. After returning home we have recommended your hotel to friends and also recommended Haarlem as an excellent place to visit.

I stayed there with my sister for 2 days. We came by car so a little discount for the parking garage would have been appreciated.
