Ambassador City Centre Hotel

Traveller (216)
Room & Suite (80)
Dining (19)
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.

The Ambassador City Hotel is lovely. It is well located and offers everything you need for a one night stay. I think there are better value-for-money options in the area, but if you're enjoying a night in the lovely town of Haarlem and are looking for something convenient, this

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...
