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. Because of our unique location we are not allowed to offer our own parking facilities or discounts. In the hotel's surroundings there are public parking facilities available at an additional charge. We recommend parking in parking garage 'Appelaar' about 3 minutes walk from the hotel. Ambassador City Centre Hotel guarantees you an atmospheric stay in an ambiance in which you will feel at home immediately. The hotel offers all facilities you need for a weekend away or a long stay, for a leisure or a business trip. You can sweeten your stay by visiting our traditional Italian restaurant or our Grand Café 'De Gouverneur.' I wish you an enjoyable stay. Yours sincerely, Paul van Riek, General Manager.

Had to move rooms twice owing to thumping music from downstairs bar/nightclub till gone 2am. Staff were very dismissive of our concern. Room was basic, shower leaked and whole hotel needs a spruce up! You’ll want a room in the centre of the hotel if you like to sleep. Positives

The website promises a very nice view but as soon as we entered the room we were disappointed. See photo. Squeeky, poorly layed floor that annoys to no end, Don’t book 114. Awful cheap beds that in the end did my back in. They also made cuddling up completely impossible.

Such a disappointment! Here's a list: (1) Superior rooms are far from such (basic everything, very uncomfortable beds, dust - no good if you have an allergy!): (2) Dirty - cigarette ends litter the entrance and rear enclosed courtyard - the latter used by staff on a break late

Responded 4 Jan 2019
Dear Dhaval_83, Thank you for the broad explanation of our location. We are so sorry to hear that you have been treated badly by our staff. You might have noticed that we are in the middle of an upgrade from a 3 star to a 4 star hotel. We're not there yet, but me make improvements everyday. This is also why we want to thank you for your honest review because we want to improve everything! Unfortunately we can't fix everything at one. We hope that in the future you'll give us the chance to amaze you and give you the treatment you deserve. With the kindest regards and the hope for your understanding. Rosemary & Team Ambassador

No that is not correct; apartments with kitchen and laundry facilities are for apartment guests - We did not stay in one of their apartments so we did not have access to their laundry facilities. We are backpackers and we wash our clothes in the shower and they dry overnight in the closet :-).

I don't think so. This hotel appears to cater only to tourists.

Can we park our pushbikes near by? How much is breakfast?
You can park your push bike outside the door, it is Holland, you can park it anywhere, the land of bike's, in Dutch.... Fiets. We didn't have breakfast in the Hotel, so don't know price but plenty of places nearby. For dinner,,, come out of hotel, turn right, then right again, Italian restaurant on right, Picolinos. Very good and very reasonable. Short walk to train station. Short ride to Amsterdam. Everybody speaks English, they even understand Ausies!!! Enjoy...
