Good day My name is Cathy Pienaar and we stayed at the Amadeus Hotel 22-25 October. First of all, I would like to say that we had a wonderful stay at the hotel and enjoyed eating at the restaurant. Everyone at the hotel, including the restaurant staff were always very friendly. I would like to mention that I particularly liked Marissa. She is one of the kindest young girls I have met in a long time. Then I would like to say a special thank you to everyone at the Amadeus Hotel who supported and helped me when my husband had the heart attack. Thank you for allowing me to stay another night and for moving our things to another room. I really appreciate everything you did for me and I was blessed to have been at your hotel where everyone was so helpful and kind. I have recommended your hotel on Bookings.com and I will definitely recommend your hotel to all our friends. And if we go back to the Netherlands, that is where we will stay too. KInd regards Cathy Pienaar

Dear Inez, Thank you so much for our time at Hotel Amadeus. We enjoyed our time in Haarlem--love the town--and we thank you for your wonderful hospitality. The breakfasts were delicious each morning, and Nadia was extremely gracious to us. Please extend our thank you to her, as well. The children miss Spikey and still talk about him. Hope this finds all of you well. Blessings upon you, Kirkpatrick Family

Dear Hotel Amadeus, Just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we loved staying at the Amadeus. We felt like a part of Harlaam as we walked through the town center each day to our "Home" at the Amadeus. Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed many hours taking in the ever changing view of activity in the center. Your hospitality and made to order espresso drinks made our stay memorable. It was difficult to force ourselves away from the lovely breakfast room to sight-see. Recently we were at the Art Museum in Detroit, Michigan. Our hearts went back to our visit in Harlaam when we say a painting of the building which now houses the Amadeus situated within the center and near the beautiful church. Thank you so much for making our trip to Holland so very memorable. Harlaam will also hold a special place in our hearts because of our stay at the Amadeus. Sincerely, Becky and Gary Guerriero

My friend and I stayed at the Amadeus for three days in October. It was not at all fancy, but clean and comfortable. The location is outstanding!!!! The breakfast room is cheerful and overlooks the square. I do recommend getting a room in the back as the noise from the square can be a bother. We had a wonderful visit.

“Amadeus Hotel in Haarlem -- Great value for the money.” My wife and I spent five nights at the Amadeus Hotel in Haarlem, the Netherlands. We based our choice on price, and on the write ups for it in various guide books and websites. These sources said the Amadeus provided good basic accommodations in a charming location -- on the Grote Markt square in the heart of old Haarlem. We had an excellent, comfortable stay there, and unreservedly recommend it to others looking for clean, comfortable, affordable rooms in an excellent location. The rooms were relatively basic, as the reviews we read had accurately reported. But the beds were comfortable, the in-rooom bathroom and shower perfectly adequate, and the premises clean and tidy. And very quiet (our room was on the top floor, at the back.) The building is quite an old one, with steep winding stairs, and a very small noisy elevator which starts on the first floor, not the ground floor. Those with mobility problems would not find it a good choice. The continental breakfast -- included in the price of our room -- was not fancy, but certainly more than met our needs. Breakfast was the only meal available in the dining room; the rest of the business day, it operates as an internet cafe, with reasonable rates. Wifi was available for a daily fee. The hotel's location -- between the old town hall and St. Bavo's church -- was enchanting. It is about a 15min walk from the central train and bus station. If you have rolling bags or light luggage, it is a practical walk. We did take a taxi from the hotel to the bus station when we left, since it was 5am, and snowing. The ride was less than 8 euros. The hotel concierges were pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. I will add that Haarlem proved to be an idea headquarters for exploring. It is a short, fast commute into and out from Amersterdam, and as a rail hub, gives excellent access to many other towns and villages. It is also a convenient 38 minute bus ride from the airport.

“Cheapish and cheerfulish” Haarlem is a beautiful small city close to Amsterdam. The compact city centre is best explored on foot, and it's also a great base from which to explore other parts of Noord-Holland. The NS railway station is a 10 minute walk to the north, and the location is unparalleled: right on the south side of Grote Markt, with a great view onto the busy city square from either the front bedrooms or the high ceilinged breakfast room / lobby on the first floor. Haarlem has a dearth of cheap city centre accommodation. Any Haarlemers with a big city centre townhouse should seriously consider a budget hostel to rival the town's only really cheap option - the StayOkay which is some distance away in the northern suburbs. I'd read cautious reviews of that option, and chosen to pay a bit more (€130 / 2 nights, high season weekend) to be in the city centre. The hotel is above a café - although there's a lift between the first, second and third floors, it would appear you have to climb at least one set of stairs to enter. Check in was easy and I purchased wireless internet for €5/24hours, although this is still working well into my second day. The entire hotel was Haarlem's first non-smoking one, although by the time you probably read this (after 1 July 2008) a national smoking ban will be in effect. My room (34) is a single on the top floor (and has already been photographed by another reviewer here). While I appreciate that few hotel rooms have windows on two sides of the building for cross ventilation, being a narrower room on the west side of the top floor, the large window turned the room into an oven during the second half of the summer days. An oscillating fan purloined from an alcove down the corridor helped. The single bed was ok, but an annoying shelf above the bed meant one couldn't lean against the wall to watch the small TV (with Dutch, German and a couple of British channels). There's also a phone and an in-room combination safe, which will look after all but the biggest laptops. There is no night staff in the building; access is with a key card and there's an emergency phone contact if there are problems. Late arrivals can arrange (with prior warning) to collect their key card from a combination lock box. Breakfast is included and is expansive with cereals, yoghurt, breads, meat, cheese etc. So, overall, ok, but verging on being too expensive, mainly due to Haarlem's lack of budget accommodation. Those with limited mobility would probably find the stairs a problem.

Lorna who works at Hotel Amadeus was very gracious in helping us on our recent trip to Haarlem. While we didn't stay here, we did need a place to leave our luggage, as we had just arrived in Holland and wanted to stop in Haarlem on the way to Delft, in order to see the flower floats from the parade on April 21. The lockers at the train station don't take money, only credit cards with a chip, so we couldn't leave our luggage there. The Tulip Inn close to the train station refused to hold our luggage. We stopped at Hotel Amadeus, in the market square and asked Lorna if she could help us. She was so gracious and kind and gladly helped us out. With the wonderful kindness we received from this hotel, I would highly recommend a stay here. The people make the difference. They also have a computer in the breakfast room so you can keep in touch with home. Thank you Lorna.

We want to thank Inez for arranging our pre-boarding on-line. When we left your hotel on Sept 2 & arrived at the airport, the SA lines were VERY long and without those passes our connection to Copenhagen would have bben delayed. zour regard to Inez and Mike;we enjoyed our stay with you in Haarlem.
Mr & Mrs. Joe Roberts
Hello(Hoi)Mike & Inez! Thank you so much for taking such good care of our group (Albert and friends)! Your hospitality was most gracious, and you went above and beyond for us.

Dear Mike and Inez Thank you for making our stay in your hotel so pleasant - we always prefer Haarlem to the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. It is a pity the weather was not so good, but never mind. Thank you also for posting the package for us. It arrived safely this morning. Hope to see you again Regards Estelle Watts

I would like to thank everyone at the Hotel Amadeus for making my stay in Haarlem a pleasant one. During my trip, I developed a problem with a credit card. Lorna was very helpful in resolving the problem. Thank you very much.

Dear Inez and Mike, On behalf of all the group from Ward Station Seniors I would like to thank you both on our stay last weekend, another excellent stay in the Amadeus in Haarlem. Even with the weather being poor some of the time everybody really enjoyed their stay. We came with 25 people this time but I can see that number rising for next August, I will be in touch to book for next year as soon as I can. Good luck to you both and Tot Zeins Les Morris

We stayed at the Amadeus Hotel for 4 nights and had a great stay. Haarlem is only 20 min. away from Amsterdam by train, and we enjoyed the easy access to Amsterdam, but the small-town feel of Haarlem. The hotel rooms are very simple with a non-decorating approach to decorating, but they were clean and the room we had was spacious. The breakfast was the highlight of our day, with bread, meat, cheese, cereal, youghart, juice and coffee. The hotel also operates a small internet cafe, and it was great to have such convenient access to the web. The owners are very nice and helpful, and the hotel location (right on the main square) was fun since we felt we were right in the thick of things. We are booked to stay there again this summer, and are looking forward to another visit.

Inez,Mike As you know, this was the 2nd time we used your hotel. We had such a nice stay this last trip. Haarlem is such a lovely place to stay. You both made us feel like part of your family. We will see you both again when we visit Europe. Take care, Ron & Diana

Hi Inez, Sorry we did not get to say goodbye and thank you in person. We are back in Atlanta now, but wanted you to know we had a wonderful time, and to thank you for all your help. Our bike ride to the gardens was lots of fun - the boys really liked the tandems. Thanks you again. The Brewers (Jim, Deb, Andy, and Elliott)

Hello Inez and Mike: Wanted to thank both of you and your staff for a wonderful stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast room is the perfect place to meet and greet people, your staff was very accommodating and you two are exceptional. When I was planning my trip I had planned to go and stay in other parts of Holland, however, after 1 or 2 days under your "care", I decided to bus and train to other parts and stay in Haarlem. Thanks again for helping to make my trip so memorable, comfortable and enjoyable. Does Lorna still work for you? If so I would like to send her a little package care of your hotel. Could you please email me her last name. Lorna _______________. Thanks. Best wishes to both of you and your endeavors. Sincerely, Judith C. Miller

Inez, Thank you very much for the warm hospitality we have received from everyone working at the hotel during our stay. Our room was exceptionally clean and all the stuff we have met were very courteous and helpful. We have made the right choice by visiting Harrlem, the most beautiful city we have ever visited, and staying at Hotel Amadeus, the friendliest and smallest hotel we have ever stayed. Hopefully, we can come back and stay at Hotel Amadeus in near future. Sincerely yours, Machiko and Richard Nomura

Dear Inez and all at the Amadeus, Sorry this message is a little late - but I would just like to thank you all for making our stay in Harlem so very pleasant.

Thanks so much Mike I really appreciate your help. I'm telling my friends about how much fun we had in the Netherlands and how they need to stay at the Amadeus when visiting Haarlem and Amsterdam. Cheers, -Warren
My father, Karl Munniks, just told me about your fine website. I am enjoying looking at it and will enjoying showing my husband and 5 children. We live in Tallahassee, Florida, but have a special interest in the Amadeum Hotel. Why? My father is the son of Gerrit Munniks, who used to own the Munniks Restaurant. You know some of the history of your building, I am sure! My father grew up there, and lived there for a few months after my parents were married in 1955, before they immigrated to the United States. My grandparents sold the restaurant in 1958. Have a great week! And thanks again for such a beautiful website! I love to teach my children about their Dutch heritage!

Dear Mike, Thank you very much for a most enjoyable stay at your hotel. I found Haarlem to be a splendid place to visit. My main interest was in the organ at St Bavo, and yet the town itself is quite delightful.

Dear Mike, Just a quick line to say thank you for your hotel's hospitality during our recent stay at the Hotel Amadeus Grote Markt, all the players really enjoyed their stay right in the centre of Haarlem.

Hallo, hebben laatst bij jullie overnacht, overigens heel goed bevallen. Zo goed, dat we gelijk dezelfde kamer bij jullie hebben geboekt, op zondag 19 oktober. Weet alleen het kamernummer niet meer. Was een heel mooi kamertje bovenin aan de voorkant (achter de letters KEN van HEINEKEN :0)) ) Maar heel graag ontvangen wij van jullie nog even een bevestiging, zodat we weer verzekerd zijn van een leuk weekendje Haarlem!

Haarlem and Amsterdam Rick Steves' book was well worth the $15. Definitely stay in Haarlem and make day trips to Amsterdam. It's only about 5 euros round trip. I stayed at the Amadeus with no problems and enjoyed the convenient internet access.

I stayed at your hotel September 2002 and couldn't have been more pleased with accommodations and staff. I was traveling alone and felt completely at home in your hotel. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I had been looking at the webcam for months before I came and then my room ended up being the one right below the camera so I had the exact same view when I arrived! Now I go to the webcam and it is just like being back there and in my room at your wonderful hotel. It was most definitely my favorite place to stay and I absolutely loved exploring Haarlem. Your hotel will always be my home base when I am in Holland!
I love your web site! I am going to be staying at your hotel later this summer and am very excited! The web-cam is great, too!
Hoi Mensen! Jullie pagina vond ik zeer leuk!!! Een tip... misschien kunnen jullie ook iets over de hofjes vertellen!!! Groetjes, Claudia Ferrada

We stayed at the Amadeus Oct 2002 and loved it! The hotel is convenient to everything. What a wonderful market! Train station within a few minutes walking distance. We took the train everywhere - didn't need a car. Haarlem is a wonderful city. We saw a lot, but not all! We're hoping to come back for a visit this summer. Thanks, Mike -- your site is terrific! Love the webcam!! Mike & Cindy Costello, Philadelphia, PA USA

hi we have stayed in the lovely city of haarlem a couple of times as its a great base for touring that part of holland. but we have never managed to get into this great hotel.but all that will change in august when myself and the family are looking forward to staying at the amadeus.we have learnt to book EARLY :-) and to all the people who are trying to book with the amadeus try using https://www713.vwh1.net/amade6/GB/reservations.htm it worked for us.

My wife and I stayed here in August 2002.Beware opening the bedroom window and showering lunchtime diners 60feet below with the house brick which was keeping the window open! Ok for the money paid.

Greetings to you and your guests. Love what you’ve done with your site. As an educator I can say you have great communication skills.
love your hotel (have stayed there twice, so far), love your website - you have done a fantastic job of keeping it updated and interesting. Also, the web-cam is fascinating - I can't stop watching it!!

I visited Harleem last December, and loved it. Next time I go I just know where to stay - Your Beautifully historical hotel. Thanks
Just back from an 10-day spring break getaway that included 3 nights at the recommended Hotel Amadeus in Haarlem, Netherlands. It was exactly as described in Rick's guidebook. If you are traveling as a family, ask for the triple/quad room number 1 (labelled "D1" on the keys), situated one flight of stairs up above the L'Anders restaurant next door.This room has super window views of the Grote Markt square outside.
Good eating - cheap - in Haarlem and Amsterdam My wife and I stayed in Haarlem, as recommended by Rick, during a recent trip to the Netherlands. Furthermore, we stayed at the B&B next door to the Amadeus Hotel, which is also run by Amadeus, and it was as nice as Rick says. No regrets there! Loved Haarlem, which is a lively and beautiful city. For good eating in Haarlem, check out Altro Mondo Trattoria, on Spaarne. Wonderful food, with most entrees costing 10 Euros or less. And in Amsterdam, go to Arnots, a sandwich place on Singel. Great bread, fresh ingredients, good prices. Happy travels!
Michael Guravich
Mike: We stayed @ your hotel in April '02, and I just went back to check your website. It is terrific!! I like the Grote Markt webcom which brings back wonderful memories. The Market Square seems to have a life and rhythm all its own. I have run thru most of the slides, and recognized most of the views from our time in Haarlem & the Netherlands. Also the cybercafe site would be very easy to use! We especially liked your having a cybercafe in the hotel, as we kept in touch with our family in the U.S. We were able to travel as far north as Leeuwarden, down to Middelburg, and many places, museums, monuments, etc. in between. With the exception of Paris, the Netherlands is our favorite place to stay in Europe. We are looking forward to returning, so we can get to the Texel Islands, and down to Maastricht. We certainly appreciated your hotel and your fine service! Fond regards, David & Phyllis Little

Joan and Alan Cantrell and Evelyn Montaldo want to thank you for the wonderful time we had staying at your historic Amadeus Hotel in Haarlem. We were there May 19-21 and May 25.

Mike, wanted to let you know that you have the best coffee in Europe. Loved my stay at the Amadeus Hotel. If you ever find yourself in Minnesota, USA I'll make you a cup of bad coffee. Thank you for your hospitality.

I love your web site!! What a beautiful Place!!
I was in the hotel 15 and 16 July, and it's great: comfortable, great staff, very good place. Oh, and you MUST see that breakfast!!! Thanks for all. PS: For people thinking on visiting Amsterdam, Haarlem is the perfect place, 15 minutes by train or car, and great accomodation with quite lower prices than a'dam
Sergio Ares  
just made a reservation after exploring the site. LOVELY. i will be there in 111 days. I am very excited! Now how do i make the time go by faster? :)
Just a comment ... you have the best website I've visited and I have been searching many sites over the past 10 days. It is so easy to use your site and it has all of the information a traveler needs. Congratulations! Now all I need is a room!!!

I have friends who will be staying with you next month so I was looking up your mailing address.I got a delightful tour of Haarlem and the Amadeus Hotel myself in the process. I'm sure my friends will enjoy their stay. Thanks for the great WEB site.
Mary Boniface  
We had such a great time for the week we spent with at the Amadeus. Breakfasts were very good and graciously presented. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We especially appreciated having our many questions answered with good humor by Mike. The location is terrific on the Grote Markt with its many activities(enjoyed watching the weddings at the City Hall)and convenient to Centraal Station and shopping areas. Room 31 was very comfortable! We look forward to staying with you in the future. Best regards!

Wonderful site.

We were in Haarlem during some rather warm days and our room (#27) was a small oven. The sun baked in during the day and only a small part of the window could be opened. Lacking cross ventilation, sleeping at night was very difficult. Mike did get us a fan, but served only to circulate the stale, warm air. The great location and availability of Internet access, could not overcome the begrudging service. Mike was at his most attentive when timing our Internet use. We did not feel welcome here and would not stay here again or recommend it.
We have been looking for accomodations near Amsterdan and found your establishment which looks interesting. Can we have more information about your place, and possibly information about Haarlem itself, since we haven't been there as of yet. Thanks,
theresa jamieson
Good Morning, we will be making a reservation with you for the third time for the first week in May. However, we need to know how much a one day small car rental will cost in town. Can I also request one of the rooms overlooking the square for the weekend? thanks

Greetings from Los Angeles, California. My friend and I are planning to visit your beautiful city and hotel in two weeks and after reading such wonderful things about your hospitality, we look forward to meeting you soon. Hopefully they will have the rooms we need. Everything we have heard about the hotel is positive. Looking forward to staying there.

I was so pleased to locate your website. I was looking for information on Corrie Ten Boom and found your link. Holland is such a beautiful country and I look forward to visiting there in the near future. I definitely want to come during your flower festival and see the parade. I'm quite sure it looks like a little glimpse of heaven ... all those glorious colors! Thank you for such an informative and lovely website!

we stayed at your hotel in aug of "00" at the start of a RICK STEVES tour. we happened to hit the weekend when all of the flower designes were on the square. it was beautiful. we really enjoyed ourselves. we had the room right at the peak of the hotel with a great view of the square. we have highly recomended your hotel to friends...thanks, don & bev wallace...edmonds, wa usa

Loved you photos of Haarlem, especially the floral carpet! Would love to visit someday as The Hiding Place has been a great inspiration in my life. What a beautiful city and hotel you have.

We have read all the guest's comments and look forward to coming to stay on October 25th. We came to Haarlem for a day earlier this year and loved the Grote Markt. When is the weekly Market?

Haarlem is a great place to stay, an we've found the Hotel Amadeus to be a great, friendly, clean hotel with helpful folks and a wonderful location. Been there 3 times, going back in September. Highly recommended.

Hello Mike and Dave,   Thanks for the great stay at the Hotel Amadeus. I had some bad luck with the key card during my stay. First evening the inner hotel door wouldn't open, and second evening I lost the key card. First time the guy from Brasserie L'Anders helped open the door, second time Dave came and made a new key for me, with cheerfulness and without any charge. Due to this kind of great service, you helped to make my first experience in the Netherlands a truly pleasant memory. Haarlem is a really charming little town, and yet so close to Amsterdam.

Your reply to me regarding the following is limited to "Dear," and no other text. Can you please try again to respond to the following, thank you: I read about your Hotel Amadeus on the Rick Steves web site and am interested in making a reservation for two nights for my wife and I (double) for the nights of July 30 and 31. I am in the process of spending a few weeks vacation in Europe and on my way to Ritterhude (near Bremen) to visit my three cousins who live there. Would appreciate a reply. In the event you have no room, perhaps you could make a recommendation. Viellen dank, Henry und Margaret Henry Bergmann USA - Thursday, June 01, 2000 at 17:37:16 (EDT)

Dear Mike, I just wanted to write and thank you for being an excellent host during my recent visit to Haarlem.   Having  a pleasant and friendly place to stay really made the trip enjoyable.  Your brother Dave, Inez, your parents and yourself do a wonderful job.  Gayle and Joan also had a great time and enjoyed their stay with you.  I accomplished all the things that I had planned on doing and saw all the old friends from years ago.  So although I've been able to get reaquinted with my old friends and probably have a place to stay when visiting in the future I'll be sure to stop and see all of you again if I make it back. Thanks again, Jon Wright

Mike, Thanks very much for sending me that list of hotels in your area. I was able to get a room at the Bastion Hotel Haarlem Velsen  - That was a very cool thing you did !!! I bet I spent 7 to 10 hours on the internet yesterday tring to find a room with no luck - Again THANKS - your great !! CT

Greetings once again!!!! I just wanted to thank you for all the information you sent me!  How very, very kind it was!  From your list and much searching, I finally found a room! Not just what I really wanted ( a small sort of hotel or zimmer) but a room nontheless.  At The Harlem Zuid - a very large hotel - located I am not sure just  where!  ( but at least in Haarlem) However, I thought you were especially helpful, and wanted you to know I appreciated it very much.  Your guests must be very lucky to have as their host one who is so helpful! Best regards, and have a great day!!! Peggy Allen 6903 S. Jamestown Tulsa, OK    74136 USA                                             

Would like to communicate with anyone who knew or knows the ten Boom family, ancestors. Would like anyone who goes to St. Bavo's and would like to write about the ten Booms. Would like to discuss the museum ten Boom watch shop, and anything pertaining to the family. Thanks

Great location, equally engaging people, when ever I visit the Netherlands, the Amadeus will be my home-base - I would rearrange my travel dates in order to secure a room at this hotel.

Dag allemaal! Dit berichtje is wel een beetje anders dan de andere op deze page, maar dat is misschien juist wel leuk. Ik werk nog niet zolang in Haarlem en ben eigenlijk heel druk op zoek naar woonruimte. Maar tot die tijd zit ik gezellig bij jullie! Ik ben benieuwd, vanavond zal ik daar voor het eerst overnachten! Jullie kregen trouwens de groeten van de familie Van Schie, met wie jullie wel eens samenwerken. De afgelopen 2 weken heb ik bij hen gebivakkeerd en dat was reuze gezellig en gastvrij. Hopelijk wordt het bij jullie ook zo gezellig! Met vriendelijke groeten, Chantal Winnubst

Recomiendo a todas las personas que están en Haarlem, a que no dejen de visitar el TEN BOOM MUSEUM (Barteljorisstraat 19). Será una experiencia inolvidable. "Cada situación que Dios permite que vivamos, cada perosna que Él pone en nuestras vidas, constituyen la preparación misteriosa y perfecta para el futuro que solamente Él es capaz de ver" (Corrie ten Boom, 1892-1983).

Hi, This is Tony from the Windsor Valiants Basketball Team - Just wanted to know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Amadeus. You were excellent hosts. Geting up with us so early was above and beyond the call of duty & we thank you. Check out out our home page - there is a beautiful picture of the Amadeus. It is near the end of the pictures on the European Tour button. Our page should be all finished and completed updated by next Wednesday, but you can view the picture anytime. I can mail you a copy if you want one or feel free to copy it off the site.   Thanks again for everything - your place was excellent!!   Tony   www.windsorvaliants.com

We'll be there next month. Just dropped by on the internet. See you soon. Jane and Bob

I just want every one considering this hotel to know that it is good. This is now the end of july and i still remember the feeling of the bed on my first day, way back in march. this are the best beds i have been in many in many nites at many hotels. the people that run hotel are the best and it is so nice to have breakfast while over looking the activites market (saturday is nice because it is sort of farmers market in the square below the breakfast area).haarlem is much nicer than amsterdam which is only 15 min away by train. it is also the same distance from the airport. our choosing this hotel for our first two nites was our best idea and a great start to our trip.

Hello, We will arrive Aug.7 and will probably only be staying one night in Holland. Based on Rick Steve's recommendation and the comments on your website, we would like to stay at the Amadeus. Please advise if you have a room for two on Aug. 7, and also the rate. Thanks very much! Candi & Steve from CA (the gold country)

We are arriving on 7/3/99 with the Rick Steves ETBD Tour. We are so excited to stay at the Amadeus Hotel. Could I arrange for some type of basket for our room, since it will be my birthday when we arrive. I would like to celebrate with my 3 other girlfriends. Please let me know what the cost would be. Maybe some Wine & Cheese. Thank You So Much. D.G. Stroud

I`m really interested to know, that have you vacant rooms in August 1999? I`d like to know how much it would cost if I and my friend like to stay at your hotel about a week? We are students (age 17 and19),so I presume that it will be a little bit cheaper. Am I right? Like I told we suppose to be there in August, between days from fourth or fifth to twelth. I look forward to your response. Miia Ryyppö

We miss the Amadeus experience. Our first trip to Europe was much more than we anticipated because we chose the Netherlands, and were fortunate enough to select Amadeus for our "home base." Two females traveling alone, yet we always felt safe and "at home." We can't wait to return to our "second home." You will find Amadeus, Mike, and Inez to be the best part of your trip. Enjoy. Bobbie

I very much enjoyed your webpage, it warms my heart to be able to feel close to Haarlem again, all the while sitting at home in San Francisco. The pictures are great!  I do hope to come back some day, Haarlem was such a nice discovery as a diversion from Amsterdam and her frantic pace. Coming from this crowded city, I found it a nice retreat from the hectic pace of a bigger city.  I'm considering coming back to the area at the end of July 1998 for a week or two, will you have a room?  Either by myself, or if I'm lucky enough to find someone to travel with me...  I did meet a pilot on my trip home who lives in Amsterdam, but  I haven't spoke to her for a while, which would encourage a return visit to Holland.   :) I'll be recommending your lovely hotel to all my friends here in the States, also, I am from the Seattle area where Rick Steves is from.

Dear people, Last week Thursday myself and some friends (a group of Americans) stayed at your Hotel.  This is just a quick note to say Thank You very much from providing such a wonderful and affordable place to stay!  We spent a good deal of time in Amsterdam before we decided to go to Haarlem based on a video we watched by Rick Steves.  We only wished we would have went sooner.  Your city is the most lovely we have been to in all of Holland, and your hotel was first class.  We liked it so much in fact that we are going to look for vacation property somewhere near by so we can visit more often. Now to just find out how hard it would be for Americans to buy property in your country. Best of luck to all of you for the future and once again thank you. Tony B. and Friends.

Stayed from May 1 to May 10, 1999. Felt as if this was a second home. The "steep steps" seemed a challenge at the annex, but then they became a source of laughter - - not to mention the muscles developed!. We fast became "family members" of Mike and Inez and all the people in Haarlem. Our room was "quaint", comfortable, and always clean. Without question I will return to Haarlem and to Amadeus. It's a perfect place to base as "home" and to take trips of one, two, or three days. I would stay longer if I could - - I look forward to my return visit.

I am going to try this. I have twice made reservation inquiries for march 4 & 5 using this web site. One last friday and one this tues. so far no answer is your reservation web site working? I have tried hotel web reservation systems in some other countries and they have blown up. At least yours doesn't blow up.
dave ellig 

You have a wonderful site! It's really great!!! I will be travelling Haarlem from the end of Feb. to the beginning of March. I will visit the 'hysteroscopic training center in your city. I want to know how far is the center from you. If you have any information on this, please tell me. I want to stay in your Hotel if situation permits. I am waiting for your reply. Thank you.

Hallo! I been many times in Holland and visited also many cities but Haarlem is really quite and nice like the people who lives there and if you want more fun Amsterdam is only ten minutes by car or train, fantastic! isn't it? If you've never been in Haarlem is time to do it, believe me.

I have stayed with you before. Great place! I especially like the "Coffee Houses" in Haarlem. They aren't scummy like the ones in Amsterdam. Restaurants are fantastic, people are friendly. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!!! Feel free to e-mail me for a reccomendation. - The Skorge Clan
