We had a good time at the Carlton. A nice room, good bed(!) and the new renovated bar is much better then it was. The Hotel is good situated with on one side the big park and the other side the beautifull city centre of Haarlem. Also the beach and Amsterdam is less then an half hour travelling.

Would highly recommend this hotel situated on the edge of town overlooking a park. Easy walking in to town. Not near main station though if arriving by train. Clean, comfortable and great wifi which matters these days. Didn't eat here but big restaurant and looked quite busy in the evening

Wonderful hotel close to the centre of Haarlem. It has very good price for quality rooms and you should definitely try a suite with jacuzzi and complementary bar (cognac and whiskey). Very spacious room; unfortunately ours had no view. Very comfortable kingsize bed. Public parking is available below the hotel, but it is quite pricy (approx. 30 euros for 24...

I rated this property as Excellent a year ago, but it is even better after the renovations to the front lobby and the dining room (and maybe elsewhere). The dining room in particular is very up-scale and modern, and the breakfast continues to be outstanding. While their list price is 20 Euros as I recall, which is pricey, you can...

Hotel was perfect for our trip to Haarlem. We stayed in an executive room which was huge & modern. Air conditioning was great and and quiet. Breakfast was lovely especially the cuts of roast beef (try it). If you want omelette, fried or poached eggs just ask the chef. The complimentary mini bar was the best. Beer, wine, juice, water,...
