This hotel is right in the heart of the historic center of Haarlem. It was an easy walk to all of the local restaurants and bars as well as the town square. Rooms were very clean and larger than expected. We didn't eat the breakfast but it looked great as I walked past. You can't go wrong with this hotel...

I visited this hotel during mid-winter (-7°C and snow) for a business meeting, and made use of meeting rooms as well hotel rooms. All in all this is an excellent establishment. Good service from a friendly staff, nice clean rooms. Great location near the Haarlem cathedral. In walking distance of a few good restaurants. The downside was the poor lunch...

the staff is kind and professional. hotel rooms are a bit small, but clean, apart a slight stinky smell of the linen. wifi connection is ok. Hotel is in the middle of city, so very convenient for shopping or night dinner, but not really convenient for car park. Average rates are expensive.

The Amrath is a lovely small hotel in central Haarlem, which is a bus ride away from Amsterdam without all the hustle and bustle. Close to shops, cafe and the people are warm and friendly. The hotel has this beautiful stain glassed ceiling, heated bath floors, and the staff is wonderful! I will be going back 12/14/2013.

To start our trip to the Netherlands off, we chose to stay one night in Haarlem to acclimate and recover from jet-lag before moving on to Amsterdam. Because we wanted no surprises, and a good night sleep, Amrath Grand Hotel Frans Hals turned out to be a good choice. Modern, comfortable rooms, great location (easy walk from train and into...

This hotel is in a great location in Haarlem. About a 10-15 minute walk from the train station and it has a very good parking lot. I think it's pretty difficult to find in a car but with GPS you should make it. My room was pretty small, however it seemed newly refurbished and everything was in good working order....

Centrally located in Haarlem, close to the church and square stuffed full with great bars and really great restaurants. Rooms are well appointed, and the minibar is a bonus! If arriving by taxi, ask the driver to drop you by the canal, its 50yds from the door but saves you 20 minutes of trying to negotiate Haarlem's bollard system end...

The hotel itself is located very close to the Grote Markt, and the Bavo church. If may wake you up during the night, as the bells ring at least every hour... But it adds to the charm.

Hotel is very dark and gloomy and in the canal view room we had you had to climb on a chair to see out of the window. I booked the hotel shuttle to the airport and it failed to show- we waited for 40mins getting more and more anxious. The concierge kept telling us it was on the way. Eventually...
