A small but comfortable room, in a street that is brimming with restaurants and has been voted several times over as best shopping street of the Netherlands.
We have a small but cozy guest room with a double bed (140x200) on the second floor (steep stairs). The bathroom is shared.
We own a not very sociable cat (I don't mean that she attacks, she just doesn't like to be petted by strangers).
We don't smoke and appreciate our guests not to smoke in the house either.
There is no need to bring your own towels or bedcovers. Everything will be provided.
We serve breakfast between 07.00 and 10.30 h.
(And for € 10 p.p. you can join us for diner).
bicycles are available
Haarlem is a cozy ancient town, situated between Amsterdam and the Northsea coast beaches. We live on the edge of the city center. Right around the corner there is a large parking. The train station is at approx. 15 minutes walking distance. There is a direct bus line to the airport nearby.
All the sights of Haarlem are within walking distance and Amsterdam and the beach are only a 15 minutes train ride away.
You can borrow our bicycles for trips to the beach, or perhaps the tulip fields...
Of course the train station is only 15 minutes walking away, so you don't have to cycle...
As we live in the city centre, there is no free parking. But there is a large parking right around the corner.
Other Things to Note
Our shop "De Groene Godin" (The Green Goddess) was voted the most "gezellige" (cozy / quaint) shop of Haarlem!
We prefer you to check in between 10.30 am and 6 pm, but other times are no problem.
Mijn verblijf bij Irmy is in alle opzichten goed bevallen. De locatie is perfect, zo midden in het centrum van Haarlem. De accommodatie is goed. Een ruime kamer met heerlijk ruim bed. Voldoende privacy en sanitair is ook prima. Verder is het s nachts lekker stil. Het ontbijt was geweldig: verantwoord en lekker.
I really enjoyed staying at Irmy's place. A perfect location at the city centre, with a spacious room and comfortable bed. Bathroom is clean and suitable. At night time it is really quiet. I loved breakfast, It was tasty and organic
This small room with a small double bed was just big enough to fit two friends. Would be better for lovers though. The welcome was a bit chaotic but lovely, because there was something going on in the shop. The breakfast was so good! And Wim did even checked for us if the wind was going in the right direction for the way back to Utrecht!
Ik heb genoten van de gastvrijheid van Irmy en Wim. Door hen was het echt een weekendje bij komen in Haarlem! Deze B&B ligt perfect in de stad, rustig en toch centraal.
De ontbijtjes en het lekkers bij de thee alleen al zijn de moeite waard!!
We werden gastvrij ontvangen bij Irmy en Wim. De kamer was klein maar knus en van alle gemakken voorzien. Irma had zelf lekkernijen gemaakt en bood ons dit aan met een kop thee. Je kunt er op een ongedwongen manier in een huiskamersetting een praatje maken, maar je hebt ook de ruimte om je terug te trekken op de kamer. De volgende ochtend stond ons een verrukkelijk ontbijt te wachten met eveneens veel zelfgemaakte belegsoorten. Kortom het was een goed verblijf op een goede locatie in Haarlem.
The room was very comfortable, and Irmy and Wim were lovely. They gave us space, but still invited us to eat and drink with them and their friends. They're very generous.
The location of the house/shop is very convenient for exploring the town. We would definitely stay here again!
We really love our stay in Irmy's home, and also love the breakfast Irmy made for us. (Breakfast is wonderful, we still miss it very much now) Irmy is very kind, friendly and sweet. she chatted with us and gave us good suggestion to visit Harrlem.
Irmy's home is near the city central, and you can walk to train station just about 15min. It's very convenient!
The room is very comfortable and clean.
Thanks Irmy a lot to give us a very nice trip in Netherlands.
We he a great stay with Imry, she was kind and helpful and her house is nice and central. Haarlem is a great wee town! Would definitely recommend.
Wim & Irmy are a friendly couple. Quiet and non-judgemental.
We own a small fantasy (book) shop and both have jobs on the side. Wim as a software engineer and Irmy as a bookkeeper.
Our motto is: We should enjoy here while we're here, 'cause there's no here there...
