When visiting Alkmaar we decided on the spot to spend the night at the grand hotel Alkmaar. The building seemed nice and we were welcomed in a sincere and nice way. We checked in, left some of our belongings in the room and went outside again. After dinner we returned to the room, finding out right opposite the hotel is...

We visited for a short break,(wife and I.) We found the hotel perfect for this purpose as it is located centrally and is in easy reach of the sites in the city. The hotel itself is quite quirky as it is on the site of the old post office. However it has been thoroughly re-designed and is well apportioned. The...

For a one night stay during the Alkmaar Culinair Plaza, I chose to stay in this hotel. The only room left when booking was a junior suite, but the price was reasonable, so I took it. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of town, on the street where every Saturday is the local market and just 5 minutes...

This hotel is ready for minor renovations, our room was very clean, but carpet was shabby, this gave you the wrong impression of the room. Our room was long and tastefully decorated, but very cold. The breakfast next day was sad, had to ask for the food to be taken away because it was cold and the pastry's were stale....

We stayed here for 1 night in April 2016. The hotel has perfectly located, right in the centre of town and close to all the amenities. This does mean that there isn't parking available, but there are public parking garages within 2-5 minutes walk, costing less than €15 for 24 hours. The service was good and helpful with recommendations. The...

Location in Alkmaar is excellent, though you have to kind of know where to park if you are with the car. Walking from the train station is max 10min. Lovely building, peeped into X-Press and had breakfast in Zegels. Lift is a tad odd but I suppose they had to put it in to accommodate less-abled people. Room was nice,...

We stayed for three nights with our dog. The building is beautiful and the rooms are nicely decorated. There are no parking spots at the hotel and since parking is very expensive I would recommend using one of the car parks in Alkmaar. The employees are friendly but unfortunately in our first night/ day there was only one person in...

We stayed on the second floor overlooking the street in an attic room with sloping windows. No safe or mini bar as stated.Supermarket nearby and very close to the main square. We were lucky enough to be there on a Friday when they have the Cheese Market. This is great to watch but very repetetive. A must to see in...

I staid many times at the Grand Hotel Alkmaar, tried most rooms. If you can be upgraded some bigger rooms offer great extra like private sauna etc... The hotel, former Post office, has been renovated with a lot of taste. Only disappointment is the breakfast... no fresh fruit juice.. Great restaurants all around the place, very cental location, in a...

We have just spent the weekend at this hotel. It is in fact the old Post Office in a very central position and convenient for restaurants, shops and the station. The hotel is perfectly adequate with a good choice of continental breakfast and nicely appointed rooms. Our room was open plan and rather quirky with a large bath behind the...
